  • I find these best for coffee as well. Love it

  • Is it worth 4x the cost of the Almond milk that is regularly on sale at Woolies and Coles?

    • I asked the same before I started drinking it in coffee. The cheap stuff is watery and does not taste nearly as nice as the 'barista' ones. One is drinkable, the other is not! ;)

    • in short.. YES!

    • this is pretty much the same as the barista almond

    • It depends what you use it for - if you are using it for coffees and frothing it etc then these are much better. I use unsweetened almond milk for overnight oats and protein shakes etc and the cheaper stuff is perfectly fine as it doesn’t need to be frothed.

      • " I use unsweetened almond milk for overnight oats and protein shakes"

        That's excactly what I use my unsweetened almond milk on, so you have answered my question perfectly haha

      • I find the Aldi almond milk is perfect for both, yes the barista one is great for that creamy texture but extra sugars can be quite high.

        The trick is to not over heat the milk to avoid it splitting

  • As an alternative.

    We have tried at least half a dozen barista blend of Almond milk. My wife is very picky with the milk. Australia Own Barista Almond Milk is the one she prefers. This often goes on sales for $3.60/L at Coles and Woolies.

    • I've tried both (Milk Lab and Australia's Own) and they taste fairly identical. I could be wrong but I believe it could be the same product, only repackaged/rebranded. As they are both owned by the parent company Freedom Foods

      • Thanks for this.

        I will stick with Australia's Own version for now, till I can get my hands on the Milk Lab's variant for $3.60 or less. Since Coles and Woolies do not stock Milk Lab, I suspect I will have to wait a very long time. Even on sales, Milk Lab sells for more than $4 at IGA

      • yeah i compared nutrition labels a while ago and they were the exact same. Maybe it's changed since but looked to just be branding

    • very interesting. I had a look at their current nutritional info and it is "almost" identical but I prefer Milklab, but maybe just a perception. I did watch something a while ago where they talked about the nuances to non-dairy "milk" for coffee and how even minute formula changes had impact. It may be that Milklab is the top tier, but I'd expect the next tier is close enough.

      I would say I moved to Milklab's macadamia milk as I think it tastes better, but it is more expensive and harder to find. Lucky I had a look and Amazon also have it for same price so I've ordered a carton.

  • lol 3.5% Almonds

    "Ingredients: Australian Water, Almonds (3.5%), Sugar, Sunflower Oil, Maltodextrin (From Corn), Acidity Regulators (340, 332), Stabilisers (418, 415, 410), Sunflower Lecithin"

    • so it's technically just expensive water !

      • Like coke, cows' milk, Red Bull, beer, etc.

        • but those are still cheaper

        • Actually cows milk isnt a company taking water and adding a little bit of almonds and calling it almond milk. I didnt realise till i bought some and looked at the labels and realised it isnt almond milk, It is water with almond flavouring and then some other junk put in there as well and sold for a massive profit. I stopped buying it after i saw the label. It is basically water with almond flavouring.

          • @lonewolf: Cows' milk is almost 90% water. It is essentially (a company) using a cow as a processing machine to combine various inputs like water and grass and whatever into a fluid. Mechanical machines require oiling, cows require antibiotics. Mechanical machines require service personnel, cows require vets. Mechanical machines produce waste heat and pollution that needs disposal, cows produce methane and a child every year that gets disposed of.

            I stopped buying cows' milk when I considered the exploitation of their reproductive systems and the killing of them and their babies.

            Cows' milk is essentially water with some stuff that baby calves need to grow to later childhood.

            • @afoveht: Yes it is 90% liquid, but it has far more items in it than some maltodextrin and almonds. Its not some stuff that the baby needs, ITS ALL the stuff, it has a heck of a lot of good nutrients and some nutrients that are not easily found in other foods or sources. Cows milk is not water with some almonds.

              • @lonewolf: Cows' milk is suitable for baby cows and contains all they need.

                It does not have ALL the stuff humans need. If it did there wouldn't be baby formula with a cows' milk base.

                Cows milk is water with some bovine secretions, much like cows' piss is also water with various other bovine secretions. Putting water through a cow doesn't magically turn it into something else if you want to use your own reductive arguments.

                • @afoveht: I said baby as in the baby cow, you said some stuff that baby calves need. And it has more than just some secretions, anyway you obviously have a thing against the dairy farming industry so theres no point talking about this with you . But the proteins and microfractions as well as the immunoglobulins as well as collustrum etc are quite - very beneficial proteins which arent easily found in other forms of diet. Plus Dairy protein is one of the best forms of protein for humans in terms of bioavailability.

                  • @lonewolf: Half the human world is lactose intolerant and does not regularly consume cows' milk. As a species we have been consuming it for only the last 10000 years. Hardly essential, and considering how violent getting it is, as well as taxing on the natural environment, complete douchebaggery.

                    Not that any of that changes the fact that cows' milk is almost 90% water.

    • This is fake almond milk. Use Nutty Bruce

  • My point is why on earth is it so expensive when their ingredients include 3.5% almonds

    • High margins.

    • I have no idea but what if almonds is the cheapest ingredient there?

      Maltodextrin, Acidity Regulators, Stabilisers, Sunflower Lecithin - these sound expensive to me. :)

      • Maltodextrin is extremely cheap med-hi glycemic index carbs. Sunflower Lecithin is cheap oil. There is a massive price mark up on these products.

        • Yup there are 5 and 10% almond milks available for basically the same price.

          It's insane more people don't read ingredients tables (reminds me of that 34% sugar jerky that was priced similarly).

    • That's why I make my own, packaged stuff is so overpriced

  • Look at those ingredients, scary.

    • They are pretty standard preservatives and emulsifiers. At least this brand doesn't contain Carrageenan like many other almond milks do. Pureharvest is one of the cleanest and highest % of almonds (around 12% from memory), but it doesn't froth well and tastes crap in coffee. For a good frothing, good tasting alternative milk for coffee you can't go past this one or Oatly barista oat milk.

      • I am buying the Pureharvest organic brand. Very good. I do not like the taste at first but now get used to it. At least know what am taking.

  • Do these contain soy?

  • 2-4 weeks to wait…i could probably start milking my own nuts faster

    …..I mean almonds

  • How does this compare to alternative dairy co?

  • Not widely available in WA?

    I've seen this across WA at every IGA, Farmer Jacks, and other supermarkets except Coles and Woolies. Not hard finding it on sale for around $4.

  • also cheaper from here, https://ipantry.com.au/products/milk-lab-almond-milk-8x1lt
    though have to spend over $50- for free shipping. i get this and the Oatly oat milk packs, sorted
