I regularly buy these 3 for £3, if not in Tesco then in Waitrose when on offer. I just don't know what are they good for. But I'm just a sucker who follows the latest trends...

They're great if you don't want milk :-) Some people are allergic/vegan and can't have milk.

True, but sadly they are no way as nutritious as normal milk. These literally have no proteins or calciums (other than some added calcium) . I think they are really over priced at £1.80 or even £1.

I use them as I am vegan.

How does this work? Do you take Tesco receipts or some thing?
Could some list the Alpro ingredients please if you have a carton handy?

Well that's what I thought when I compared this to the normal cow milk.
The protein is definitely little compared to normal cow milk, and calcium is added to the almond milk, just like some other vitamins which are added.
Price wise I think normal milk offer better value for money, but I think this is expensive due to less competition and less production.
What's your view? Am I correct?

Not sure if this is accurate, but I'm sure if you google round you can check.

Normal milk isn't particularly nutritious, you use up more calcium absorbing the calcium in milk, than you benefit from it, according to research. The benefits sold to us, the consumer, is mainly marketing from the dairy industry.

Cows milk is cheaper because it's very heavily subsidised. Without the subsidy most farmers would go out of business.
Same offer on in Waitrose at the moment.
Sainsbury's are also doing these at £1 each at the moment. Not all flavours though

Great, I'd much rather shop at Waitrose. Altogether better quality clientele.

Which research is this? Why do dieticians and the NHS recommend cow or soya milk as a source of calcium if we actually lose calcium?

While this isn't a scientific research website, it is supported by scientific research, and a simple look on the internet will back up the claims. I've never met a dietitian or NHS staff member who recommended cows milk to increase calcium levels, but it may be something to do with the amount of calcium in milk, without the information of how little we absorb it being offered into the equation. We are taught from a young age that dairy is a requirement food group, which is needed, in order to maintain a healthy body. It is simply not true, it is an invention by the food industry, as we are the only mammal who continues to drink milk, let along from another species, once fully grown. It is baby cow growth hormone; very good at making a small calf into a huge cow, in a matter of months, not so good for anything else.
