elmhurst-759x500After a 90-year operation, Elmhurst Dairy in Queens, New York has ceased its dairy operation after citing a drastic decrease in customer demand.

Incorporated in the 1920s, Elmhurst Dairy had become established as one of the largest dairy manufacturers on the East Coast of the United States, supplying the metropolitan area of about seven million people.

According to Schwartz, their new line-up has “up to 4 times more nuts per serving than the other leading brands.” This is huge because other nut milk brands have been found to have minuscule amounts of actual nuts in their products and are instead loaded with various fillers, thickeners, and emulsifiers. Milked will be available in four varieties: Almond, Cashew, Hazelnut, and Walnut. Each of these will be made with only raw cold-milled nuts and other simple ingredients. Schwartz guarantees that “no emulsifiers, thickeners, whiteners or frankenfood proteins” are used.
