Last month, Whole Foods came out with a brand new organic product – a refrigerated almond milk under the 365 label.

The company claims that this is the industry’s first-ever private label, certified organic, refrigerated almond milk and I believe what it is saying. I cannot recall seeing another one.

Why is this product so novel?

Well, it is novel in terms of what you can get in the supermarket.

Prior to this product being available, our only option (aside from making it at home) was buying boxes of almond milk, which sit on the shelves in the dry goods aisle.

These boxes are kept at room temperature until you open them. Then, they go into the fridge. The shelf life of these boxes (before they are opened) is approximately one year.

Whole Foods is now offering a much more fresh alternative. Its almond milk is kept cool and has an expiration date of roughly two months.

The taste: Extremely good because of its sweetness and full-body texture.

The ingredients: You might need an advanced degree in nutrition to know exactly what everything is. I am guessing that there are some natural preservatives in there because otherwise it wouldn’t last two months. Organic sugar cane is the primary sweetener.

This product is a step is the right direction for Whole Foods. Clearly, something with a shorter shelf-life is preferable.

If you are looking for a dairy-free alternative, this is a good one to try out.

    Is that why the shelf life is 2 months? That warm boxed version freaks me out. I think of is it sticking to my internal organs and they then becoming petrified … just like the containers

    Hi Ayurvegan,

    I understand your frustration and don’t disagree with you in theory. To call something organic, 95% of the ingredients have to be organic. Companies use that other 5% and put things in there that I don’t like and won’t eat. That is why it is so important to read the label, even if it is certified organic.

    You bring up a great point for everyone to remember. Thanks for your comment.

    Live well,
    Max

    Here’s the big problem I’ve recently discovered.After all of this time, i’ve been buying 365 ORGANIC soy milk. Since recently researching extensively on the effects of even ORGANIC Soy in general, I’ve since looked for a better alternative. After taking a look at the nutrition facts, which you have a pic of above here, I’ve noticed the “NATURAL FLAVORS” ingredient, otherwise known as MSG. I’ve decided to stop buying 365 products altogether and I’ve sent a letter to QAI asking how they can label something like this ORGANIC. I obviously understand that QAI does not pass everything as %100 organic, BUT, this is something people should be aware of, as this is a main ingredient that would otherwise render a product NOT ORGANIC but Natural.
