Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely! I use this in home made muesli using Holland and Barret gluten free oats and sunflower seeds, plus some chopped fruit, and it's great. I soak the ingredients overnight in it so that they swell up, increasing their enzymes and nutrients, plus it tastes better, too, than chewing through dry ingredients. The milk has a lovely consistency and tastes mildly sweet and slightly creamy with a delicate, pleasant flavour. I wouldn't recommend it in things like custard or sauces as it doesn't seem to thicken up as well as cow's milk, for example, which may have something to do with the sunflower oil content, but as an ingredient in many other dishes it's fine. This is my experience but it could be that I am just a bad cook when it comes to sauces, so feel free to experiment! I use it in my coffee substitute hot drink and it works really well without separating like some milk alternatives do. I also buy this for my vegan student daughter because of the vitamin and calcium content, to help ensure she gets more in her diet, because I believe she has too much soya milk which tends to be in her student budget range, and want to wean her off it a bit. She loves it. It is more expensive than most brands of soya milk but compares really well to other milk alternatives such as oat, coconut, or almond, so if you're looking for an alternative to soya or cow's milk this is definitely worth a try. Can I just say that for the mail order side of the company, the H&B packers need to make sure the box is small enough that these weighty milks don't get thrown around. I think putting a 'this way up' label on the box, and/or 'handle with care' may help to avoid a few accidents I've had with burst cartons after they have looked like they've been inside a tumble dryer! H&B were fantastic however, and sent me replacements to the damaged goods, but since then, although there were no burst cartons, my last delivery have had the plastic tops knocked off so that when open I have to reseal them with cling film which is a bit inconvenient, as I wouldn't buy them like this from the shelves myself. I haven't complained about this as it's only a minor inconvenience. But surely this could be avoided with the right measures? It's not a great change that needs to be made, after all. 26 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by For those with problems with dairy this is perfect tastes wonderful (unlike soya milk) and is refreshing. I use it on cereals, in smoothies and for making porridge & rice puddings. Not too good to cook with generally though as it doesn't thicken like milk does so things like custard end up really thin. Thumbs up for it though :) 22 January 2013
