8th Continent

8th Continent Soy Milk

I have just discovered that the once unvegan soymilk 8th Continent is now vegan. The makers of 8th Continent have removed the added Vitamin D3 and replaced it with plant-based Vitamin D2 making this now an option for the vegans. I know most people prefer Silk, I prefer Organic Valley myself, but I have heard from some who liked 8th Continent but would not purchase it any longer after finding out it was not vegan. So go get your vegan 8th Continent if that’s what moves you.

Also, has anyone ever seen 8th Continent anywhere other than Wal-Mart?


Hemp Milk?

May 11th, 2007

Hemp milk, a relatively new product to the store shelves is finding itself in the news a bit in places.   I have read a bit of good information on it, finding it is loaded with calcium and phosphorus (46% and 43% of RDA respectfully), not to mention vitamin B12 (25%).  Hemp, illegal to produce in the US, is grown mainly in Canada and exported.  The biggest supplier of hemp milk is Living Harvest.

I have tried the Original Flavor, it has a slight nutty flavor and not too bad.  As a regular drinker of soy milk I couldn’t say I would use it to replace the soy milk but otherwise it makes a nice change.

Wild Oats does carry it in the shelf-stable milk area.  $3.59 for 32 ounces.,1406,KNS_350_5518510,00.html
