As she grew more health conscious, Nutty Life founder Caroline got curious about why and how the almond milk she was buying didn't need to be refrigerated. After extensive research, she learned a lot about the ingredients found in these milks that blew her away! Below is just one example of a chemical additive that you might find in the typical nut or soy milk sold at your local grocer.
- carrageenan: the same chemical used to de-ice airplanes. YES... you read that correctly. And the only purpose for this chemical in your alternative milk is to prevent separation and to thicken (i.e. to make it seem like your nut milk has more nuts than it actually does). Personally, we prefer the separation. The non food grade (degraded) carrageenan is a known carcinogen, causing colon cancer and bowel inflammation in lab rats. The food grade carrageenan (undegraded) can contain as much as 25 percent of the degraded carrageenan. There is debate around whether the undegraded variation causes the same colon and bowel problems as degraded carrageenan. The uncertainty is enough to keep us away from carrageenan the carcinogen. A common misconception: carrageenan is derived from seaweed, so it must be ok for us to consumer. Because of the highly chemical-induced process of converting seaweed into carrageenan, the seaweed is no longer seaweed at all. You can learn more about this additive and its harmful effects through the Cornucopia Institute.

We don't even know the effects of consuming some of these additives on our bodies and health! And more of the research points to scary outcomes down the road. Check all of your labels carefully because some can be deceiving, and... have no fear because Nutty Life is here!
Also, most leading brands of almond milk contain only 2% almonds. Each bottle of nutty life contains at least 8% nut & up to 35%! Our milks are full-bodied, filling, and mouth-watering good! Place your order
