Historic Dairy Shifts to All Vegan Offerings; Elmhurst Milked Products are as Nutritious and Pure as Conventional Milk with None of the Emulsifiers, Thickeners or Stabilizers Used in Leading Brands
Henry Schwartz, the longtime owner of Elmhurst Dairy in New York State, is thrilled to announce the debut of Elmhurst Milked, a groundbreaking new line of vegan nutmilks and the next step in the company’s storied evolution. After 92 years in business, Schwartz and Elmhurst look forward to leading the plant-based revolution with an investment in clean label products that are concurrently delicious and nutritionally robust. First launched last month at the Natural Products Expo West conference in Anaheim, CA, Elmhurst Milked is available in four unique varieties including Milked Almonds, Milked Cashews, Milked Walnuts and Milked Hazelnuts. The Elmhurst Milked team will be on site at the upcoming Global Specialty Coffee Expo in Seattle on April 20–23 (Booth 10, Level 3) to showcase the nutmilks’ effectiveness in coffee applications.
Using a patented cold milling process called ‘milking’, Elmhurst Milked crafts a whole food, non-dairy milk that combines the nutrition of whole nuts with superior, creamy texture and full flavor. The product contains none of the industrial stabilizers, whiteners, emulsifiers or gums typical of other leading brands – it is naturally white in color due to native nut proteins and creamy as a result of healthy nut oils. Elmhurst Milked’s innovative process also allows for safe consumption over longer periods of time, boasting a longer shelf life with no need to refrigerate the product before opening.
Each Elmhurst Milked nutmilk contains up to four times as many nuts as the other leading brands and is made using only whole, raw ingredients sourced from trusted farmers. The product can be enjoyed on its own as a high-protein, low-sugar beverage or used in cereal, coffee, tea and smoothies. It can also be used as a replacement for milk in cooking, and its high protein content and foaming properties make it excellent for lattés and cappuccinos.
Elmhurst’s promise of total transparency runs through everything they do, from sourcing and processing to brand narrative. All of Elmhurst Milked’s products are non-GMO, gluten free, vegan, dairy free, lactose free, and kosher. To highlight the revolutionary nutmilk, Elmhurst Milked is packaged in a modern container that combines the best features of the carton and bottle: combidome from SIG Combibloc. The package is recyclable, and the nutrients and vitamins are maintained in a convenient and easy to handle packaging.
