If You Buy Almond Milk-STOP. Here’s Why

Commercial Almond Milk is a Scam. Here’s how to Make Fresh Almond Milk
 Did you know that each  half-gallon carton contains very few actual almonds?

 

Additionally, store bought almond milk contains some  dangerous additives  such as Vitamin A Palmitate.  Vitamin A Palmitate  is a synthetic version of Vitamin A.  Retinyl palmitate can cause potentially hazardous side effects. According to the Cosmetics Database, potential side effects include cancer, developmental and reproductive toxicity, violations, restrictions and warnings, cellular level changes, and organ system toxicity. Retinyl palmitate has been shown to produces excess reactive oxygen species that can interfere with cellular signaling, cause mutations, lead to cell death, and it may be implicated in cardiovascular disease.  The Organic Consumers Association warns that our bodies do not recognize and metabolize synthetic vitamins properly.

Fortunately, making your own almond milk is quick and easy.

    I am not siding with anyone here. In my opinion there is no such thing as almond milk, with emphasis on milk. It is a scam from the beginning to make huge money. Almond water would have been the better descriptor. It is akin to vegetable oil. Has anyone seen a vegetable oil plant? It’s highly processed and recent studies indicate it may be bad for you. Lard is natural, so is butter. Why do people put fake crap in their body? Instead of natural things? lol
