There’s a New Pea Protein Milk in Town!

Almond milk may be an almost billion dollar industry, but almonds aren’t the only player in the dairy-free milk game. Pea protein milk has taken off, offering eight times the protein of almond milk50 percent more calcium than dairy milk, and a third of the saturated fat.

Ripple Foods has a line of pea protein milk, available in Target and now there is another new pea milk in the game!

Bolthouse Farms, the largest producer of baby carrots in North America has developed Bolthouse Farms® Plant Protein Milk. Their beverage contains 10 grams of pea protein per 8-ounce serving, compared to almond milk’s one gram of protein.

The pea milk comes in four flavors: Unsweetened, Original, Vanilla, and Chocolate. We’ll take one of each, please!

BOLTHOUSE BAD CARROTS 1

There was a time, right up till I inadvertently purchased a bag of carrots with rotted carrots in it, that I trusted Bolthouse Farms products. Why not? Everything I ever bought with their name on it was good, very good. They have the best carrot juice. But I guess you don’t have to use good looking carrots for juice, only for when you sell them as whole carrots.

It seems that Bolthouse Farms is getting sloppy in the whole carrot department. In the last year I’ve noticed a steady decline in the quality and size consistency in their baby carrots. Now I get home and find rotted carrots in my Bolthouse Farms bag of carrots. I never even looked when I was in the store – that’s the level of trust I had in them.

Then I notice that in addition to these carrots being a product of the U.S.A., they’re also a product of the European Union – if the acronym E.U. does in fact signify European Union. Looks like these carrots had two fathers, or two motherlands. Now, where the rot actually happened is anybody’s guess.

I find it hard to believe that the U.S.A. can’t grow its own carrots. But even if Bolthouse Farms buys carrots from other countries, you might think their concern for quality control would be paramount, especially given their reputation for high quality carrot juice. And since there are so many countries in the European Union, one might think that the actual country be sited on the bag.

Okay, so the language is French, but does that mean they came from France or is France the shipping point? Did we bag them in the U.S.A or did we ship the carrots to France for France to bag them and ship them back to the U.S.A? I don’t know, and the people who do know think we don’t have to know. Well, yes we do, for instances such as this, so we can trace the item all along the process of growth, bagging and shipping.

One of the reasons that it takes so long to pinpoint the source of a food-related disease outbreak is because accurate records aren’t kept. We don’t know where the heck these tomatoes came from, we so often hear on the news when there’s a listeria or salmonella outbreak. What if the carrots were carrying a disease and killing people? The public deserves to know, since it’s becoming increasingly difficult to trust those who are in charge of our food supply.

If nothing else, I could have gotten the carrots that were supposed to go into the juice and not be sold as whole, and me getting these bad carrots was like a whistle-blower letting the world know how the carrots really look before they become your carrot juice – the juice that looks all clean, fresh and healthy once it gets to the bottle.

The carrot was the whistle-blower this time.
