Milk, the oldest natural drink, is of great importance to people’s health. Whether children, the elderly, or young people in the struggle period, milk is crucial in their nutrition. Of course, drinking milk alone is too single, and many people will match it with all kinds of food. So do you know what food goes best with milk? What food is bad with milk? Now I will present what milk is most nutritious to eat.

What food is best matched with milk

Milk and pasta

Milk is nutritionally complementary to all kinds of grains and perfectly matched with pasta that needs good elasticity and toughness. Whether making steamed bread, bread, steamed buns, dumplings, and noodles, you can use milk instead of white water to mix noodles or add milk powder directly.

Making pasta with milk or milk powder can not only easily supplement a large amount of calcium but also delay the absorption rate of milk and avoid the trouble of “lactose intolerance.”

Milk and breakfast cereals

Cereal and milk

The protein content of cereals is low, and the content of lysine, an important essential amino acid, is insufficient. Combined with milk, it can improve the supply of protein and use the extremely rich lysine in milk to make up for the defect of amino acid balance in cereals to improve the nutritional value of cereals.

You can also use milk to make sesame paste, fried noodles, popcorn, corn porridge, and rice porridge.

Crude fiber biscuit

This kind of biscuit is processed with eggs, wheat flour, bran, and oats by modern high-tech standards. It is rich in a large amount of edible crude fiber and can better promote the absorption of protein and vitamins in milk than ordinary crude fiber food. Therefore, you can drink milk while drinking milk so that the nutrition absorption is more sufficient and balanced.

Milk and dates


Dates are rich in minerals and vitamins, with more vitamin C and iron, and vitamin C can effectively promote iron absorption of iron. The only deficiency in milk is vitamin C.

Together, milk and dates can replenish deficiency and quench thirst, moisturize the large intestine, and detoxify heat. It is also suitable for your heart and lungs. In addition, red dates can strengthen the spleen. Eating red dates often can promote blood circulation and strengthen the spleen, which is very helpful to the digestive system and detoxify the body. You can also have beauty.

The combination of two can learn from each other so that the nutritional value of both can be fully reflected. So it’s a good match. It’s pretty effective for those with anemia.

Milk and strawberries

Drinking milk and strawberries together can cool your thirst, calm your mind and increase nutrition. In addition, strawberries contain many vitamins, which can play the role of beauty.

Milk and apples

Milk glass and apple

Eating and drinking milk and apples together can cool and quench thirst, generate saliva and remove heat, and have the effect of anti-cancer. So you can drink milk and eat apples.

Apples are rich in vitamins and other trace elements. People who often eat apples can improve the immune ability of the human body and reduce illness. As the saying goes: an apple a day keeps your doctor away.

What foods can’t eat with milk

Milk and orange juice

Many people will feel that there is nothing wrong with the milk and orange combinations, and some even say they don’t know how to make such sour milk. However, let’s not mention the production of other processed milk. It isn’t very comforting to see the combination of milk and orange juice.

You should know that milk’s protein is easy to interact with gastric acid to form a coagulate under acidic conditions. In addition, calcium lactate and calcium oxalate in milk cause deposition and produce flocs, which are not conducive to the stomach’s absorption.

Therefore, some people with poor intestines and stomachs will have abdominal distension after drinking fruit juice and milk. In addition, fruits such as oranges belong to high acid fruits, which will form a large number of flocs when encountering milk.

Milk and chocolate

Milk is a protein-rich food, and chocolate is an energy-rich food. Therefore, some people think that eating both at the same time will be of great benefit. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The calcium in liquid milk and chocolate milk reacts with the oxalic acid in chocolate to form “calcium oxalate.”

Therefore, nutritious calcium has become a harmful substance to the human body. This can lead to calcium deficiency, diarrhea, stunted growth in children, dry hair, easy breakage, and increased urinary calculus.

Milk and egg

Eggs and milk bottles

Experts pointed out that the breakfast of milk and eggs is not scientific, and protein is difficult to provide energy. Now more than 9% of children only eat milk and eggs in the morning, and food is absent in breakfast for a long time, which is not suitable for children’s growth and development.

Milk contains lactose, which is a dimer of galactose, and glucose, in which galactose is its nutrition. Eggs have a lot of protein, which is decomposed into amino acids. The absorption of amino acids consumes energy (active transport on the small intestine wall).

In this case, there is less glucose in the blood, and the galactose is oxidized for energy. Therefore, some proteins in eggs will react with some nutrients in milk to reduce the nutritional value, so it is not suitable to eat together.
