These Alternative Milks Boast Clean Ingredients and Sustainability

With the rise of health-consciousness and sustainability, many consumers have come to forgo or at least reduce their consumption of traditional milk products in favor of alternative milks made with everything from quinoa and oats to nuts and seeds. Perfect Day's product is specifically branded as an "Animal-Free Milk," which speaks to consumers who understand the amount of energy and resources that goes into keeping cows for the purposes of milk production.

Some of the most interesting types also explore interesting beverage hybrids, such as The Juicery Co.'s 'Greek Mylk,' which is part juice and part milk alternative made with a base of Brazil nuts.

With the rise in alternative milks that are made from nuts and plant-based ingredients, there are also dozens of business opportunities arising to support the rise of these products. For instance, NotMilk offers an on-demand milk delivery service that updates the concept of routinely getting a bottled beverage product from the milkman.
