This includes: Coconut Drink, Rice Drink, Almond Drink, Oat Drink and Soya Drink.
The ingredients appear to be quite standard. The Almond milk contains only 1.5% almonds which is comparable with major brands such as Alpro and Almond Breeze. However, you can find brands with more. For example, Eco Mil, Provamel Organic and Rude Health contain around 7% almonds.
All of them are fortified with calcium which is something to be aware of if you’re replacing dairy.
I only purchased the coconut milk to try and found the taste similar to the Koko Dairy Free coconut milk.
