India: Cashew demand steady despite high kernel prices

USA: Steuben Foods goes nuts over non-dairy milk

18 August 2017

Aw, nuts.
Just one year after closing its Elmhurst line of dairy milk after 92 years in business, Elma-based Steuben Foods is coming out with a new non-dairy milk that is already hitting store shelves.
The new Elmhurst Milked product is a new line of vegan beverages, made from almonds, cashews, walnuts and hazelnuts. It's made using a patented "milking" technology that captures the nuts' natural nutrition without using "stabilizers" or other additives, officials said. The drinks are natural, gluten-free and non-GMO, with no gums, thickeners or emulsifiers.
"The result is a delicious, clean-label beverage perfect for those who desire a non-dairy drink," product manager Kimberly Behzadi said in a statement announcing the new product line. "We also have an arsenal of cooking recipes and tips on our website."
It takes eight walnuts, 11 cashews, 11 hazelnuts and 18 almonds, respectively, to make each of the drinks. Behzadi said the almond and cashew milks are milder in flavor.
The non-dairy milk will be made at the company's former yogurt factory in Elma, which employs 660 currently, with an expectation to add at least 50 as the Elmhurst product grows. The drink will be available in four different quart-sized cartons online and at local grocers, including East Aurora Co-op, Ashker's Juice Bar, Washington Market and Market in the Square.
Retail prices are $4.99 for the almond or walnut varieties, and $5.99 for the cashew and hazelnut milks.
