Pea Milk: Better Than Animal Milk in Every. Single. Way.

Let me start by asking you a question. If you could drink milk that had eight times the amount of protein as almond milk, ½ the sugar as regular milk, and didn’t require cows on factory farms to be harmed in the process, would you try it? My guess is the answer is yes. Now, if you found out that it also tastes amazing, and has 50% more calcium than milk, would you drink it on the regular? My guess is the answer is ‘f&ck yes’!

Pea milk has 8x the protein, half the sugar, and 50% more calcium than cow milk.

Welcome to the deliciousness that is Ripple Foods. From the same founder that brought you Method (listed as one of the fastest growing companies in America in the last 10 years), Adam Lowry needed a new challenge. When his daughter started asking him to bring home more “vegetable milk,” Ripple Foods was born.

In addition to all the positive benefits of drinking their pea milk, Ripple’s bottles are also made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic; and that plastic can be recycled in over 99% of households. It also requires 93% less water than milk (it takes 1000 gallons of water to make 1 gallon on dairy milk). Oh, and they only use non-GMO ingredients. Talk about a ripple effect! That sound you just heard was the mic drop.

Expect to see this incredible beverage on shelves across the country very soon, and you can likely already find it in your local Target store. So, before you pour regular old milk on your next bowl of cereal, make sure you remember to Ripple it up instead.

The future of food has never been so exciting. For us, for the planet, and for the animals. Check back in with us in the coming weeks, as we plan to post more on the deliciousness coming out of the incredible businesses taking our world by storm…

Which of these delicious foods are you most excited to try?

    If I’m forced too, but as long as I still have the option, I’m going with natural. Even if it’s not as natural as those false advertising companies make it out to be.

  2. Geraldine Pettigrew

    Still not eating it. I would rather have actual meat, even if it has some GMO in it than pure artificial meat

  3. Joyce Shealy

    It’s not like we’re just killing animals for fun we need meat.

  4. Earline Wilham

    Man Meat is my favorite food, and if they take away our natural, delicious, succulent steaks, ribs, chops, and organ meats I will resort to cannibalism in the future.

    I can’t see people getting on board with lab-grown meat. Most people don’t look into or study things and just jump on the bandwagon of hating something that just sounds bad that they know nothing about as they do with GMOs and gluten. Most would be shocked to know that they have never eaten a natural fruit or veg (as they were 100 years ago give or take) in their life as this has been done for so long it has changed the food entirely. If we didn’t change our crops many would have died out. Ever wonder why banana flavoring tastes nothing like Bananas? They do. They taste like a breed of banana that was killed off by fungus more than 50 years ago. I am all for future food and GMOs! We need to protect our Bananas!!!

    What about human meat? You can solve food shortages and overpopulation at the same time.

      A big problem with that. Cannibalism is considered immoral in a lot of cultures, and it actually has been proven to provide several different diseases.

  7. Karen Smith

    It all sounds ok, but I hope they will be cheaper, and that we don’t just get many new diseases from any of them.

    Everybody can be fed now and in the future without resorting to strange foods if wastage is avoided (it is estimated that between 30 to 50% of all food output is lost to wastage due to various reasons).

    Until we get a pizza roll bush science can fuck right off.

    And this is why I voted for Trump. Because I knew that he would get us all killed before I had to eat any of this garbage. An
