Peanut Milk: The Plant-Based Protein You’ve Been Waiting For

It’s no secret that Americans love peanuts (at least not to us).  What you may not realize is that alternative milks and plant-based proteins have changed the way we shop.  Now, for the first time ever, those two trends come together in not one – but two – new peanut milk products.

If you’re already a fan of alternative milks, you know they’re not all the same – especially when it comes to protein content.  More than ever, consumers are demanding products that compare favorably with cow’s milk on that front.  Enter Elmhurst Milked Peanuts™ and Elmhurst Milked Peanuts™ with Chocolate, which offer simple ingredients, full flavor and 6g of protein in every 8 oz. glass (8g in the chocolate version).  Both products are also non-GMO, gluten free, vegan, dairy free, lactose free and Kosher.

In addition to being our country’s first commercially available plant-based milk made from America’s favorite nut, Elmhurst Milked Peanuts™ ushers in a whole new peanut category innovation.  Over the past eight years, the National Peanut Board has been working to help bring peanut milk to market and into the homes of peanut lovers across the country. From supporting the development of the initial concept, to assisting with the launch and introduction of the product, America’s peanut farmers have played a key role.

So what do America's peanut farmers think of peanut milk? Check out reactions from three farmers:
