Milk alternatives for San Francisco Bay Area offices

More and more of our clients have been asking us about milk alternatives such as soy, coconut, oat, almond, cashew, flax, hemp, and walnut. In fact, many of our prospective clients expect to be able to get milk alternatives with our San Francisco Bay Area office coffee service. We’ve dedicated this blog post to highlight our coffee service. In addition, we’ll share common milk alternatives for those who’ve moved beyond cow’s milk.

Consider these milk alternatives for your San Francisco Bay Area office

Bayco Vending offers customizable office coffee solutions whether you’re looking for single-cup, bean-to-cup, or traditional coffee services. With our De Jong Duke and Newco coffee brewers, you can expect cafe-quality coffee in the office, every day. Not only do we offer the most popular brands of coffee products, but we can supply you with well-known milk alternatives.

Soy milk

Soy milk is one of the most common and popular plant-based milk alternatives. It’s made from soybeans and cholesterol-free and low in saturated fats and high in protein. Soy milk is versatile and can be used in most places in place of cow’s milk.

Coconut milk beverage

Coconut milk beverage should not be confused with coconut milk, which refers to the high fat and high-calorie version used in soups and curries. In other words, the one you cook with. Coconut milk beverage is high in fat and contains no carbs. However, it can offer a thick and creamy plant-based alternative suitable for those with dairy and nut allergies.

Oat milk

A more recent and trendy option, oat milk is naturally free of dairy, lactose, soy, and nuts so it’s a great option for those who have food sensitivities. However, it does usually come with more carbs and calories than other plant-based options.

Almond milk

This popular milk is widely available and has a mild, nutty taste. It’s great to add to your morning coffee and can be popular for cooking. However, if you have a nut allergy, you’ll want to steer clear of this milk alternative.

Cashew milk

This milk alternative has a creamy consistency and a milder taste compared to other types of nut-based milk. It’s naturally gluten-free and vegan. In addition, it contains calcium and vitamin D. However, it is low in protein and contains no fiber. Finally, cashews require a fair amount of water, which means it’s not the most eco-friendly option out there.

 Flax milk

This is a newer milk to the market and made from ground flaxseeds and water. It has a distinctive taste and is thinner in its consistency. It’s a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and a natural anti-inflammatory. It’s also gluten-free. Keep in mind that it can contain thickeners and preservatives to improve texture and shelf-life.

Hemp milk

This heart-healthy, gluten-free option contains omega 3 and omega-6 fatty acids and fewer calories than whole milk.  It’s a vegan plant-based alternative with a slightly nutty flavor. Since the whole plant is used, Hemp is eco-friendly alternative milk.

Walnut milk

This newer nut milk has a nutty flavor and is great to add to coffee or use in baking. It’s higher in good fats and protein.

With all milk alternatives, try to opt for organic and unsweetened options to retain the health benefits. Whether you’re looking for milk to add to a cup of coffee, to your cereal, or just to enjoy a refreshing drink, we got options that you will love.
