Thankfully, we live in an era when there are many milk alternatives for those with milk allergy or lactose intolerance, including rice milk, soy milk, almond milk, cashew milk, hazelnut milk, pecan milk, hemp milk, coconut milk, pea milk, oat milk, buckwheat milk, flax milk, and quinoa milk.
It’s time to move over and make room, non-dairy milk alternatives: there’s a new product in town and it’s coming to your store’s shelves: peanut milk. Yes, peanut milk.
Elmhurst Milked, a company from upstate New York, has introduced a new product called Milked Peanuts™ which it describes this way:
Introducing the first peanut milk in America! From the farms of Georgia, we’re cultivating the best peanuts available to create a creamy and nutritious milk alternative, packed with 31 peanuts and 6 g of protein in every glass. A true first that both kids and adults will love!
Needless to say, peanut milk is not suitable for people with peanut allergy. If you drink a cow’s milk alternative derived from tree nuts and are allergic to peanuts, take special care: peanut milk products will likely be stocked on the same shelf and the packaging may look similar. Don’t inadvertently pick up the wrong container!
