See this lovely stock image of almonds scattered next to a cup of milk? It's actually a highly realistic interpretation of almond milk, because as it turns out, there are basically no almonds in it at all.
According to Time, a new lawsuit brought against Almond Breeze maker Blue Diamond claims the "almond milk" contains just 2% of almonds. It's mostly made up of water, sugar, carrageenan, and sunflower lecithin. No word yet on how much "breeze" is actually included.
Though Blue Diamond doesn’t list the almond percentage in the US, a UK Almond Breeze website reportedly also says it's just 2%.
The plaintiffs argue that the product’s packaging is deceiving, as it says it's "made from real almonds," and it includes pictures of them. In fact, the side of the carton shows two hands cupping a heaping pile of almonds so bountiful the holder is forced to let some poor almonds drop. Because he's holding THAT many damn almonds.
