New Product Alert: Flaxmilk

Leave it to Walmart to astonish me!

Recently found at my local Walmart, buried at the bottom of the refrigerator section was Flaxmilk by Flax USA.  I don't actually know if this is a new product, but I've never seen it before, and it was just made available in Walmart stores on April 11, 2011.  I didn't even know it was possible to get milk from flax seeds (that's a lot of seeds!).  I was not able to find this product at my local grocery store.

Here are the stats for the Original flavor, 1 cup:
  • 50 calories :)
  • 2.5 grams of fat
  • 0 grams saturated fat  :)
  • 80 mg of sodium
  • no fiber  :(
  • 7 grams of sugar
  • no protein  :(
  • 1100 mg omega-3  :)
  • 340 mg omega-6
  • 345 mg omega-9

This milk is lactose, dairy, gluten and soy free. 

While this product is not organic, I do appreciate that it is a non-GMO (genetically modified organism).  It's also kosher.

This milk also comes in Vanilla and runs on average, $3 per half gallon.

The ingredients aren't as pure as homemade rice milk. ;)

It's creamy and has the consistency of full fat milk. Smells a little funny and tastes slightly sweet and a little off, but not off enough to be a turn off.

Give it a go!
