Hi everyone,

I love the Almond Breeze Unsweetened Milk. I am learning how to do the diabetic exchange program and I'm not sure how to figure it out. On another board someone wrote that the milk is almost all fat. I know it's low cal, but is the fat content bad?

Thanks!
Gwen

Remember it is not cow's milk, there is not a drop of dairy in it. I have some Almond Breeze in my refrigerator right now and the box says
total fat 3.5 gram
Saturated fat 0 gram
Trans fat 0 gram

I have Silk PureAlmond Unsweetned, which I prefer personally. It's
35 calories per cup
2.5g fat (but it's good fats!)
1g of carbs (all fibre no sugar)

fat free milk is twice the calories, 5mg of cholesterol, 12 g of sugar.

Almond milk is a whole 'nother animal.
