The food industry is being re-shaped as we speak, driven by startups that are responding to consumer demand of healthy and responsible products. Australian Milkadamia makes plant-based milk pressed from raw macadamia nuts.
We welcome a new friend to the world of dairy alternatives! Milkadamia, a plant milk made from macadamia nuts. CEO of Milkdamia Jim Richards told Food Navigator that he thinks clever packaging and relatable branding will be their way to stand out from almond, soy, oat et al in the fridge. The milk is pressed from raw nuts grown on a family farm in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia, the macadamia’s native habitat. The farm cultivates the trees in a manner said to promote healthy soil. Macadamias boast a variety of health benefits. The nuts are thought to promote brain health, bone health and heart health as well as being completely cholesterol-free and packed full of protein. Milkadamia offers four different products: Original, Unsweetened, Unsweetened Vanilla and Latte de Barista. In 2018 it will be available in the refrigerated section of Walmart as well.
