Orgain High-Protein Almond Milk

By Jack Norris, RD, Executive Director

Orgain

There are two plant-based milks that recently came on the market that I have found worth reporting on—Orgain and Ripple.

I drank sweetened plant-based milks for many years, but more recently switched to unsweetened. After a brief period of adjusting, I now find them quite tasty.

Unlike most almond milks that have only 1 g of protein and taste like sugar water to me, Orgain Almond Milk has 10 g of protein (a combination of rice and pea protein).

The unsweetened version only has 1.5 g of fat and 1 g of sugar. It’s fortified with calcium at 250 mg per cup. And it doesn’t contain carrageenan, which can upset some people’s digestion.

Orgain doesn’t need to be refrigerated until it’s opened and will be found with the unrefrigerated plant milks.

I’ll write about the other milk, Ripple, in a future post.

  1. I’ve found that added protein like pea protein makes the milk grainy. To me, this makes it a tradeoff of nutrition for texture. Is that the case with Orgain?

    1. Max–I don’t know how they do it, but I don’t find either Orgain or Ripple the slightest best grainy. They are both my go-to milks now and I’m pretty picky about what I put in my morning coffee!
