How is almondmilk made?
There’s nothing like Silk® Almondmilk. What’s the secret to our amazing taste? Well, we can’t tell you all our secrets, but it starts with three types of almonds. Our almonds are carefully roasted to help unlock their flavor, then a precision grinding process turns them into silky smooth almond butter for that signature Silk taste.
Almonds and the environment
Did you know plant-based beverages are easier on the environment than dairy milk? Making an average half gallon of Silk® takes about 65% less water and generates about 67% less greenhouse gas emissions than a half-gallon of milk.**
We also balance 100% of the water used in our manufacturing plants to make our almondmilk, restoring it to nature.
*Excluding our organic almondmilk flavors, Silk almondmilks contain 450mg of calcium per cup; reduced fat dairy milk: 309mg per cup. USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference. Data consistent with reduced fat dairy milk.
