Pacific all natural Hemp Non-Dairy Beverage - A Great Option for those Dairy-Free

I have a heck of time getting my dairy-free daughter to get enough calcium.  I am regularly trying out different dairy-free options to see if I can find one this rapidly growing tweener likes.  I was very impressed with our recent find - a plant based, all natural Hemp non-dairy beverage.  In case you're wondering, it's made from hemp seed, NOT hemp plant!!  


S.A.F.E. Review - Hemp Vanilla
It has a mild nutty taste, but is NOT as thick or sweet as coconut milk or as thin as rice milk. It's also vegan, organic, soy-free, gluten-free, parve, NON-GMO Project Verified AND contains 50% of one's daily amount of calcium needed - a HUGE PLUS for my daughter.  


Pacific all natural Hemp non-dairy vanilla beverage, producted by Pacific Foods of Oregon, Inc., Tualatin, OR  97062.

Ingredients include:  HEMP NUT BASE (FILTERED WATER, WHOLE HEMP NUT [SHELLED HEMP SEED], BROWN RICE SYRUP, NATURAL VANILLA WITH OTHER NATURAL FLAVORS, TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, DISODIUM PHOSPHATE, XANTHAN GUM, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, VITAMIN D2, RIBOFLAVIN (B2), VITAMIN B12.

For more information, contact them at: Pacific Foods OR 1-503-692-9666.

It is also a natural source of balanced Omega 3 and 6, has 900 mg Omega 3 ALA, is an excellent source of Magnesium (25% DV), Vitamin D (30%), B12 (25%) and Riboflavin (35%).  I know that the 'natural flavors' will be of concern to some, so I would call the company themselves to double check for any particular ingredients you are concerned about.

I made one of my favorite Vanilla/Chocolate Arbonne protein shakes for my daughter, and she gobbled it up!  Think I found a keeper!!
