Product review: Califia Farms Almond Drink


Product: Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk

Nutrition per 100ml: Energy 73 kJ (17 kcal), Protein 0.5 g, Fat 1.3 g of which saturates 0.1 g Carbohydrates 0.8 g of which sugars <0.1g, Sodium 180mg, calcium 190 mg

Ingredients: Almond milk (Water, Almonds 2.3%) , Sunflower Lecithin, Sea Salt, Potassium Citrate, Natural Flavors, Locust Bean Gum, Gellan Gum

What I like about it? This almond drink has a mild vanilla smell and goes well with coffee. It is high in calcium (comparing to cow's milk and other calcium-foritified plant-based milk). The calories levels of this drink is very low. It is GMO-free, and comes in a BPA free container.

What I don't like about it? Whilst dietary protein is usually not an issue with a carefully planned vegetarian meal, the protein content of this drink is very low compared to another plant-based milk such as soy milk. It is also an imported product so food miles are high.

Would I give them to my children? Yes as an occasional beverage.
