Almond milk, packed with harmful ingredients such as sugar and carrageenan, should never be consumed, especially by children. At least that's what anti-almond milk pro-dairy articles are saying.

Just checked ingredients in mine ... unsweetened, , no added sugar, GMO free certified organic, made with while activated almonds. Okay ingredients ... filtered water, organic activated almonds (7%), organic brown rice, sea salt, natural almond essence. Also have one I bought to try and it’s yummy, called Almond Quench, almond coconut milk (these are made by Pure Harvest in Australia), That one has 5% activated almonds, 10% coconut milk, otherwise the same and is also GMO free, certified organic etc. Also, I brush and floss my teeth so I think I’ll be okay 👌 👍

No lie, I like the taste of regular milk, but knowing more and more about harms and the poor baby cows being separated by their poor mother is just sick. I've been buying almond milk for maybe a year now and I just can't understand how anyone wouldn't love it haha I buy unsweetened (not much of a sweet tooth) and it legit tastes like a treat 😍 tastes so goooooood!!! (And nobody needs to die for it)

Califia is NOT eco-conscious with that big huge container of plastic! I bought it three times when I thought, "This is a real waste of plastic!" Tasted good but went back to the boxed brands, Silk , etc.!

talking about sugar, Dairy is packed with sugar, the lactose, which is tough to digest, if digestable at all.

The only bad thing about almond milk is that its ecological footprint is terrible. Almond producers in CA use a crap load of water. Each almond requires 1.1 gallons of water to produce and 4 gallons of water is required to produce one gram of protein. Producers use up to 9% of all water for agriculture in CA---more than residential use and rice. And almond farmers' require bees to pollinate their orchards and use 60% of the country's managed bee colonies.

Ok lets get this straight especially for these two morons in the video. There are foods that build a body and foods that cleanse a body. Animal products build a body that’s why if you’re insane enough to bring you’re children up vegans they will be sick and weak.(and even sicker as adults) Plant foods cleanse a body and are especially good for people that have a lot of inflammation or disease (these people are usually middle aged to old age people) If someone is continually on a plant only based diet then they are just cleansing their body to death because the body is not receiving optimal building materials as plant nutrients are not easily converted by the body. However,when I say animal products Im not talking about junk food or over eating animal products. All native tribes hunt animals to supplement their diet,remember the word “supplement “. So a plant based diet supplemented with good natural organic animal products is the way that all natural tribes eat in their natural environment. These fools in the video can only survive by living next to a supermarket. There are legal cases where vegan adults have attempted to feed their babies/children on a plant based diet and the children have died. There has never been a vegan tribe in history or in the present that live on a 100 per cent plant based diet.

Lmfao you should see what Americans are feeding their children 😂 soda, fast food, processed food and yet “almond milk is bad for you” lol

her Eye brows are the scaryiest thing I'm seeing in this video. My sister has it for no Vegan reasons. I go some to try to have less milk. As in a day the amount soon mounts up.
Arnie Kando (18 days ago)
Oh and the other thing they don't tell you is this. I have done a small survey during my life after I noticed something. I met couple ( 4 persons) of people that has never gone to the dentist in their life and they now 45 plus minus. I checked there teeth and there are now filling or anything. I then asked these people about there diet and it came out that they consistently drink 2 glasses of cow milk each day without fail since they were children and they have very strong bones. Then I listen to people like you that is anti milk and I think....but you are wrong.......I am also on a journey to find dietary truth and I promise you most people are wrong. here is the secret. Eat everything in moderation. 30% meats and fat and the rest veggies and fruit and THEN......exercise at least 3 times a week for about 45 minutes minimum per time. If you do this you will be helthier that a vegan or a person that consumes to much meat.

Most almond milk is nutritionless. In 8 oz of almond milk, there is 1 or 2 grams of protein. In cow's milk , there is 8 grams of protein. The rest of both milks are carbohydrate. With so little protein in the almond milk, that means the manufacturer uses very little of the nut itself, and that most of the almond milk is water. It is devoid of phosphorus, calcium,magnesium and micronutrients. Whereas in cow's milk, there is 300 mg of calcium, 300 mg of phosphorus and supplemental vit d. If you are worried about the negatives milk: viruses, cancer causing agents(igf 1), then take a chewable enzyme with the cow's milk to break down the undesirables in milk. I tried 1 brand of almonds milk, that had 6 grams of protein and that means more almonds in milk, and I liked that. But with all seed and nuts products, you have to take a chewable enzyme to help break down the celluose, hemicellulose and phytates to make available the nutrients in the nuts.

I'm with you guys! And dairy milk does contain sugar from lactose... ?!?! Recently I've become a huge fan of Almond milk. Thanks for sharing about Califia Farms! I love their coffee products, but haven't tried the Almond milk yet. I'm so curious and mad about company's adding carrageenan to stuff.... WHY?!?!!

I just took a sip of the only source of almond milk in my super market, which is un-sweetend, and all my teeth just fell off.
Almo Milk (1 month ago)
Hey all! We're an Australian based Almond Milk Company- We don't use carrageenan, add no sugar and churn our almonds literally into almond cream before blending it with calcium, xanthan and salt. Simple, clean and using Australian almonds which are not fumigated with Propylene Oxide. The main advice i give to all our customers- quality over quantity. And judge almond milk on its protein as some companies might claim 'activated almonds' which are soaked in water and then thrown out. Hope that helps! More insights on our website if anyone needs more info on what to look out for.

I have to say I see more "fake news" from Vegans about the dangers of traditonal diets, usually with no science to back it up.. Now taste your own medicine LOL. Sadly pseudo-science and "religion" is always more popular than facts..

I would not drink pasteurized almond milk.
Kyle Facada (2 months ago)
FYI - while I agree with these points, the 1% food waste doesn’t mean that all the almonds are ending up in the milk. It just means that the rest of the residual content of the almonds (what would end up in the milk bag) is eventually re-used and repurposed as ingredients for other food products such a protein powders, additives, nut butters, etc. It’s still not ending up in the beverage. The same goes for dairy milk harvesting. The leftover byproducts are used to make things like whey protein powders and supplements.
leonf1111 (2 months ago)
The real problem with all so called milk dairy or not is pasteurization. If it's in plastic or boxed, it must be pasteurized per government mandate. That kills most of its health benefits.

i used to buy nut milk to use with my smoothies (almond, hemp) until i saw the carrageenan and guar gum ingredients both of which are harmful to your body. i quit all milk and just use filtered water to make my fruit smoothies.

Being from the mid-west I need that mouth feel of cow milk. So for me, Oatly oat milk. If you think Almonds are hard to milk, try an oat... (i couldn't resist)

Only mammals produce milk. From plants you get sap, juice, nectar, and oil. Plant milks are nothing but an emulsion of oil and water.

When I make almond milk, I soak 1 cup of almonds overnite in a medium bowl, the blend them up with 2 cups of water. I like my milk creamier...the I turn the oven on 200 and throw the leftover pulp in there to dry. Then I use that almond flour to make pancakes, or add in for other baked stuff. Sounds like a lot, but it is nothing much to do,lol. For 1 cup of almonds, I get 2 or 3 days of thick milk plus flour.
Augustus Supremum (3 months ago)
The problem with almond milk is that almond trees require astounding amounts of water to grow, more than any other crop. Our almonds in the USA are grown in California where drought is the norm. The high demand for almond milk is leading farmers to do environmentally harmful things in order to produce so many almonds. They replace low-water need crops with almonds, clear wetlands, and drill deeper wells to get what's left of the ground water which leads the ground to sink and cave in. Better to not rely so completely on one type of "milk" or to buy "milks" made from more drought tolerant crops, that require little to no fertilizer. I think walnuts are much more drought tolerant then almonds for instance.

I don’t get why people buy almond milk from supermarkets. I make fresh almond milk everyday. It’s the easiest thing you will ever do. Put 8-10 almonds in a blender, blend for 1 minute, no need to soak or strain when blended. It tastes soooo much better than pre processed. No need to sweeten either and way healthier also.
