Why do you add oats to your almond and macadamia milks?
We want our milks to be creamy and slightly sweet without having to add gums or sweeteners. Adding oats achieves both of these things in the most natural way possible.
Are your oats gluten-free?
Yes, we use only certified gluten-free oats in our facility.
Is your oat milk allergen free?
Our oat milk is made in our factory that also processes tree nuts. Our factory is free from all other allergens, including peanuts and gluten.
Are your nuts locally sourced?
Yes, all our nuts are sourced from various areas within South Africa. Our almonds are from the Klein Karoo, and our macadamias from Mpumalanga.
Why do you add dipotassium phosphate and calcium carbonate to the milks?
Dipotassium phosphate is a water-soluble mineral salt and source of potassium. Its main role is to control the pH of the milk, keep it stable and creamy. Calcium carbonate is a mineral compound added as a source of calcium to build and protect your bones.
Why do you add canola oil to your oat milk?
We add canola oil to our oat milk to match the fat content and creamy richness of whole-milk. We chose canola oil because it is locally sourced, GMO-free, has a neutral flavour and is high in monounsaturated fat.
Why does your almond milk contain only 3% almonds?
We could never understand why most almond milks only contain around 2% almonds until we started making our own. We started off with 5% in our fist trials and the milks were so thick, they were undrinkable. After many trials we found that 3% produces the perfect consistency.
Are there added sugars in the milks?
There are no added sugars in our milks, the sweetness comes from the oats. During processing natural enzymes break down the oat starch into smaller components, namely maltose and glucose.
Does this milk froth for coffee?
Yes, all our milks make a beautiful froth and are delicious in coffee and tea. That said, they’re not great with very acidic beans where there may be some separation.
How long should the milk last?
The milk has a shelf life of 6 months, unopened. Once opened, refrigerate and consume within 5 days.
How do you achieve such a long shelf life, unopened?
Our milks are heat-treated to extend their shelf life.
Why is there no nutritional table?
Our nutritional analysis results are not available yet, but as soon as they are, we will update our label.
Why plastic bottles?
Plastic was not our first choice, but after much research and deliberation we chose these 100% recyclable bottles. When considering the environmental impact of packaging there are many things to take into account: the origin of raw materials, manufacturing processes, local recyclability, the packaging’s contribution to shelf life and reducing food waste and the efficiency of transport and distribution. HDPE plastic is more widely recycled in South Africa than multi-layer cartons and has a much lower initial production, transport and recycling carbon footprint than glass. Please help reduce the environmental impact of this product by rinsing and recycling every bottle.
Can I order online? And which payment methods are available?
Yes, you can order from our online store here. Payment methods available are PayFast and SnapScan.
Where can I buy the milks?
Find the stock list on our website here. You can also order from us directly from our online shop here.
Do you know that not all the lids seal correctly?
Yes, thanks to customer feedback we are aware of this problem and are working with the supplier to fix the issue asap.
The foil is slightly raised from ‘positive-bottle-pressure’, does this mean that the milk is spoilt?
No, this does not mean that the milk is spoilt. Pressure differences during processing, incl temperature differences at time of filling, or transport from one altitude to another, can cause this positive pressure. Spoilt milk is characterized by a sharp, unpleasant smell.
