We churn 5% which equals 50 grams of almonds (roughly 40 whole almonds) per bottle. It might not sound like a lot but it is actually more almond that you drink than 10% activated almond milks. Simply compare protein content.
Oh yes! Almo froths super well because we simply add more almond and less water. No need for weird thickeners. Almo even came first at Melbourne International Coffee Expo as a leading barista-blendy and barista worthy almond milk.
No, our original almond milk is unsweetened.
Almo strongly opposes soaking and sieving out almonds due to the reduced nutritional value, increase wastage of the almond itself. Instead, we take the skin off and churn the almonds into almond crème, a tahini-like consistency to make a more creamy, nutritious Australian almond milk.
Almo works with a co-op of Australian growers around the border of Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia who produce some of the highest quality almonds in the world using the Nonpareil and Carmel almonds. The almonds are not fumigated with Propylene Oxide, a common fumigant in imported almonds. More on PPO and the issues with imported almonds here.
Almo uses organic and local ingredients where available. We use pesticide and fumigant free almonds which are locally sourced from the Riverina region in Australia.
We use natural calcium carbonate derived from limestone. A glass of Almo Milk will provide you just under a third of your Recommended Daily Intake (RDI). More info on calcium carbonate here.
Xanthan is a natural gum or polysaccharide created through the fermentation of sugar by a bacteria called Xanthomonas. It has been associated with a number of health benefits including lowering cholesterol and lowering blood sugars as well as being a potential prebiotic to help in maintaining a good gut flora.
Almo Original Unsweetened and Naturals range use xanthan simply to reduce separation of almond and water over a period of time.
Almo is a pasteurized almond milk which is safe for pregnant women, those with immune conditions and kids to consume. It is not a complete milk replacement for kids under the age of 5.
