Earth & Co, more recent to Food Lover’s Market shelves offers a rice milk and an almond milk, and take care to ensure that their product is not only 100% natural but produced in a responsible manner.
The rice milk is enriched with calcium and is the least likely to affect allergies. It is a good choice for a customer looking for plant based milk that is either allergic to soy or nuts.
Rice milk is perfect for over cereals or make creamy rice pudding. It has a higher carbohydrate content, with lower protein that other plant-based milks.
Earth & Co Almond Milk boasts a preservative-free almond milk with no colourants, sweeteners or GMOs. The products are produced in Europe.
Good Hope MA (Milk Alternative)
Good Hope MA Milk is a soy based milk which is mineral fortified and a classic, common alternative. It is made by well-known milk brand Clover SA. It is the cheapest milk alternative on the market, and contains the highest amount of protein out of all the plant based milks.
Food Lover’s Market Coconut Milk
Our house brand coconut milk and coconut cream boast the best price in the market. Coconut milk has a much higher fat content than the other alternatives and can therefore replace full cream milk. It is cream for cooking, desserts and best of all, making dairy-free ice-cream! It is a pinnacle ingredient in a Thai curry, and delicious in tomato soup.

Most plant milks are lower in kilojoules than cows’ milk. With all plant based milk, it is advised to give it a good shake before using. It is suggested that soya milk is heated before added to a hot beverage to prevent it from separating.
