Califia Farms feels very vanilla with its unsweetened vanilla-almond milk.
The team says that while “vanilla” is often used as a word to describe something “ordinary”, the taste is anything but!
Things to know about vanilla:
- Vanilla is the only fruit-bearing member of the orchid family.
- There are a number of therapeutic uses for vanilla, for example it is used in some cultures as an aphrodisiac or for digestive problems. The aroma is also known to have calming and relaxing effects on people.
- Today it is the second most expensive spice in the world after saffron, as it is only found in certain parts of the world and can only be pollinated by certain types of insects or by hand.
- Vanilla can be used to reduce sugar intake and act as a sweetener.
A spokesman for the Califia Farms team describes the unsweetened vanilla-almond milk from Califia Farms as a "velvety vanilla hit".
"With no added sugar and a hint of vanilla for a subtle natural sweetness, its creamy mouthfeel and smooth texture make it a great non-dairy source of calcium."
Califia Farms unsweetened vanilla almond is now available in Coles and Woolworths supermarkets nationwide, as well as other independent retailers.
