I was curious if the solids from making almond milk were used in some way...

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

This is the answer I got from the Blue Diamond company.

"We are unsure of what happens to he almond milk solids as this is proprietary information."

I told them I was just curious and had no negative intent. Since almonds are so expensive, I jut wondered about this.

    In large companies one department rarely talks to another, especially when they're in completely different areas (in this case, customer service and production). S/he probably didn't want to know, didn't want to take the time to find out, and would've taken weeks to find out an answer, even if they could've/would've shared it.

    I did quick searches for "how almond milk is made" and "what happens to the pulp when almond milk is made". In just a moment of looking I didn't see anything about what big companies do with it, but when people make it at home the pulp can be used in several different ways, so I'd assume companies either compost it or use it in other products.

    I'm sure nothing goes to waste - as long as it's there they will find some way to make a profit from it. It's all about the bottom line. . .

    I think that almond flour is made out of it. ( Dried and then ground. ) I am sure many more things are made out of it.

    When I have made nut milks, I use the left-over 'pulp' in homemade protein bars. I believe it is primarily only fiber at this point. Gardeners put it right into the compost. As far as big companies go, I bet they do something profitable with it. Whey is a bi-product of cheese making. That bi-product has become whey protein powder. If almond pulp can be sold, I bet that it will be sold. Then sold again to us consumers.

    I love almond milk. Used to do skim and decided to try Almond Milk instead. Really love it! Have you ever cooked with it?
