Innovative plant-based beverage company Elmhurst Milked announced its products’ debut in Whole Foods Market, Wegmans, Walmart, and independent grocers across the greater New York region and beyond. 

Using an evolutionary ‘cold milking’ process developed by renowned food scientist and entrepreneur Dr. Cheryl Mitchell, Elmhurst Milked crafts a new category of nutritive plant milks, meaning the product retains the nutrients and flavor of its original raw ingredients, with none of the industrial stabilizers, whiteners, emulsifiers or gums typical of other leading brands.

Each Elmhurst Milked product is non-GMO, gluten free, vegan, dairy free, lactose free, kosher, and made using only whole, raw ingredients sourced from trusted farmers. The word “milked” best describes the company’s unique process of using water to gently separate and draw out the nutrients from nuts and grains. Once released, these valuable nutrients naturally re-combine to form a smooth, creamy beverage, which retains the naturally occurring protein and fats per serving found in a handful of nuts, grains or seeds.

Elmhurst Milked is now sold at 39 Whole Foods Market locations including 12 in New York City; Essex County, Bergen County, Morris County and Monmouth County, NJ; Darien, Fairfield, Greenwich, Milford, Danbury, and Westport, CT. Found in the non-refrigerated alternative milk aisle, Whole Foods Market currently offers three core varieties: Milked Almonds; Milked Walnuts; and Milked Hazelnuts.

In addition to the Whole Foods Market rollout, the brand has stocked independent New York City groceries including Westerly Natural Market; Park Slope Coop; Lifethyme Market; Perelandra Natural Food Center; Grace’s Marketplace; Khim’s Millennium Market; Union Market; Natural Frontier Market; Bushwick Coop; A Matter of Health; Park Natural Foods; Fresh Garden Inc.; Orchard Grocer; and MidCity Farms.

The brand’s newly-launched Milked Peanuts™, Milked Peanuts-Chocolate, Milked Oats, Milked Almonds – Unsweetened and Milked Hazelnuts – Unsweetened, have also been released in 345 Walmart stores across the country, among other national and local stockists; while the four core varieties will launch at all Wegmans locations in March 2018.
