About Us / Mellisa's Almond Milks History: Mellisa’s Almond Milks create raw, organic almond milk products from raw organic ingredients - with no additives or preservatives.
Our Almond Milks are raw, 100% certified organic, high in vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, phytochemicals, living enzymes and healthy omega fatty acids!!!
Our products are unique in that we use unpasteurized almonds, direct from a roadside stand in California, and therefore they have not been pasteurized.
My story began back in 2010, when after many years of self abuse I decided it was time to get healthy and one of my big changes was cutting out dairy after realizing my body couldn't process it the way it used to.
Replacing dairy with store bought almond milk, I eventually started making my own after becoming increasingly frustrated that I couldn't find an almond milk that was both nutritious and free of any nasty additives and toxic chemicals. It seemed that every nutrition panel I looked at contained either carrageenan, fortified vitamins, gum, stabilizers and thickeners!
And every milk I found had been through some kind of PASTEURIZATION process!
Why did something as nutritious as the mighty almond need to be fortified with additional vitamins? And what exactly was PASTEURIZATION?
The more I learnt about the PASTEURIZATION process - how the almonds are either heated to the point where their life force is almost entirely dissipated, or sprayed with a chemical so toxic that it was banned by both the American Motorcycle, and the National Hot Rod Associations - the more I realized the only way to get a truly RAW 100% ORGANIC almond milk would be to make it myself! And that is exactly what I did!
At present we make the following RAW 100% ORGANIC UNPASTEURIZED Almond Milk products:
Quality can't be hurried. We make our Almond Milks in small batches, juicing, blending and mixing with care.
