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 started drinking almond milk because the strongest man in the world drinks it with his breakfast cereal and if its good enough for him then it's good enough for me.

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.

I love almond milk. The brand we use is alpro which is imported from Belgium. It comes either sweetened or unsweetened and contains Vit. D, Vit. E, Riboflavin (Vit. B2), Vit. 12 as well as extra calcium.

I'm not a vegan (I eat meat) but I DO love Almond Milk and only drink Almond Milk unsweetened. Funny thing is, my ex, who was lactose intolerant, forced me to get it and I had to drink it, but I ended up liking it and keeping it around, unlike her. ;)

They are paid for dairy industry. There is no wrong with almond milk. They just talk about sugar in almond its nonsense
EnigmaticRPG (1 month ago)
Informative & correct video, BUT the title & description are such CLICKBAIT! Like, it worked on me, but for what? Ill-gained views? NICE Literally everything is "good" or "bad", depending on the consumption level, or simply who you're talking to. Almond and dairy milk both come with pros & cons... I drink both for different reasons personally... but while almond milk is (mostly) fat, lactose & cruelty free, do you have any idea how much water it takes to grow almonds??? They're *ravaging* California, but that's not going to stop anyone lol So, congrats on the scare-tactic based click, and thanks for the wasted time!

Fortified Almond milk can be very dangerous if you drink too much. Ive been drinking 500ml on average everyday or so and exceeded 255% of my daily intake of calcium. This can cause kidney failure and blockage of the arteries. Eating wholefoods more than enough provides enough calcium. I wish they never pumped all our store brought almond milk with calcium like we are deficent. Much better off if it was left unadultered with suppliments.

I have PCOS and can't have milk anymore. The reason I can't have it is the hormones in the dairy milk. This news came from my nutritionist from a hospital.

I buy almond milk (plain) and Organic wholebean soy milk. I'll use one carton and then make something homemade like oatmilk (super easy) or almond milk. I don't strain through a bag just a fine sieve, because it's just for my porridge or smoothies and a bit of pulp is fine. I love it with some vanilla added, but NO sweetener. I find the organic wholebean soy is gorgeous when you add some vanilla to it, I can drink that straight! I don't like the taste of regular soy milks.

In my day, I'm 67 1/2 yrs old, ingredients were not listed on any product. We had to demand an ingredient list.and put it on the ballot, and even then, the controversy was a joke. I couldn't believe we were buying food not knowing what "other" ingredients were in it?! We believed that , for instance, canned corn was just corn, nothing else...because when we canned corn at home, we didn't add anything but water, and maybe salt...so why would other preservatives be added at all? The food is preserved when it's sealed. The food companies were so mad when the measure passed that we as consumers worried to a great degree wondering if the makers of the food would be honest at all? I still wonder about that today. The FDA is supposed to monitor the "list of ingredients" but do they monitor the "ingredients?" The food banks are giving food out that has expired all the way back to 1984 now. On one occasion, salad in a bag was sitting in stacks on the shelf at my grocery store, and my curiosity made me look...the dates were expired" selling the bags of spinach for $1 a bag. Well, the spinach was dark and wet inside so it was mostly bad, but the food bank was only a few blocks away and I wonder what that was about. Fresh food is becoming non existent in my Safeway store, the only grocery store in my town of 2500 people. I'm 40 miles north of Spokane WA. But, back to ingredients...do we even believe them at all? We are at the mercy of the growers and packers., always will be unless we grow everything at home.

I think you guys are great, so I hope this doesn’t come across as offensive: I notice I don’t share your videos where you say “butt hurt” because—even though you make such good points and site such great studies—it doesn’t feel sharable with some of the clients and such who I would like to share your work with. You put so much work and care into your videos, it’s just a friendly suggestion to drop that kind of languaging, as it makes you suddenly sound...well...kind of dumb and base. I say that in the most loving and affectionate way.

Get out of your house and go to the local farmer unless liberals put them out of business and buy God's creation. Natural no packaging. No additives. Pick up some "real organic eggs" bet these people go to the whole foods and still get extras you don't want in your food. These folks should smoke some more. Must of not ever been out of their comfort zone and support the local farmers. People lived healthy to their 90s eating what mother earth. Not open-minded and not convincing me that my "true " natural foods with no additives and tastes incredible. I guess we are lucky where we live . These people destroyed all the mom and pop ranches that provide the sweetest veggies and friendship.

im not a vegan but i do eat healthy and try not to have much dairy, now i mainly drink almond/cashew milk unless hazelnuts are on sale than that is my go-to xD (btw I grew up drinking a lot of milk and imo no other milk can compare, but im not from USA so quality differs) I do agree that nut milk are much healthier than dairy milk. I just have doubts about soy milk, i try to stay always as much as possible even though i think its the best flavor non dairy milk. But i hate the fact that these companies take advantage of "ignorant people " and try to brainwash them into things being bad/good, with some very stupid conclusions, like the ones you guys mentioned. People need to get informed.

Almond milk is a poor milk choice if you care about matching the nutrition content. It's basically very few almonds and a bunch of water. There is apparently 1 gram of protein per serving, compared to bovine milk's 8. You're better off eating actual almonds for almond nutrition. There is an almond and cashew protein milk out there with fortified pea protein. This has 10 grams of protein per serving, which is much closer to actual milk.
