Amid the FDA crackdown on the nomenclature of nut milk, the fact holds they are what they are — a delicious alternative to dairy milk. Nut milk captures the interest of two sets of people: those who consciously adopt a cruelty-free approach towards food and drink, and those who cruise towards a vegan lifestyle due to the growing food allergies and intolerances. And as far as intolerances go, a study shows that three out of four Indians have no milk tolerance, which arises from their inability to digest milk sugars called lactose. The reason of choice notwithstanding, #DSSCRecommends top five nut milk brands available in #OurCity.
Sain adds a diverse range of flavours to the almond milk pantry. Pick from their seven ‘stories’ narrated with healthy ‘characters,’ each surprising the palate and opening up a world of possibilities. Take a break from artificially flavoured milk that stays on supermarket shelves for long without refrigeration, and say hi to The Cardamom Story, The Cacao Story, or The Kafeccino Story which, as the names suggest are flavoured with cardamom (and dates), cacao (and hazelnut), and coffee (and macadamia nuts) respectively. The Seeded Story oozes with the goodness of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds etc, making the perfect replacement for milk in your smoothie.
It is however, the The Tropical Story with characters such as pineapple, coconut, almonds, that holds us in awe. We’re thinking of sipping on virgin Pina Coladas by the day, and spiking them up when the day ends. Sain also offers two flavours that are light on the palate – The Vanillin Story and The Original story. With fresh batches being rolled out every day, Sain is a nut milk brand worth giving a go.

When Team DSSC sets out to explore the supermarket shelves, we search high and low and everywhere in between, and stumble upon gems that make our culinary journey worthwhile. On one such expedition, we struck gold with Raw Pressery’s Cacao Almond Milk, a guilt-free option for the hunger pang that demands immediate attention post a killer workout at the gym. While Turmeric Latte was trending elsewhere in the world, the folks at Raw Pressery were secretly concocting its cold and dairy-free cousin, the golden hued Turmeric Almond Milk. Not up your alley? Try their Coffee Almond Milk when cold coffee ‘o’ clock strikes.
