good find op, heat added :)
#2
good find.

too expensive normally.
great health benefits for most of these.

cant say so for the soya. drink at your own peril. lol.
#3
prefer the rude health brand for almond milk as it does not use thickening agents (also available at sainburys). not a bad price, but the gum ruins it

Stabilisers (Locust bean gum, Gellan gum)

+heat for the deal price
#4
Morrisons are doing the same deal
#5
Good price! I love those nut milks as a treat!

A great alternative to this (if you need an even cheaper one) is the aldi sweetened soya drink. Very pleasant for soya milk!
#6
Same in co-op too :) might save someone petrol, or grab a student to go with you and get 10% off too
#7
might be OK on cereal but terrible in hot drink and not that nice to drink on its own. prefer cows milk!

The other way round for me! I can't stand cows milk In hot drinks, I only drink them with soya. Yet cereal has to be cows, Cold glass of almond milk and coconut in smoothies! (_;):p

Great price thanks OP

I thought a pound per carton was the norm anyway? How can something that is 85% tap water cost so much? has anyone seen the ingredients, it says like 3% almond milk or something stupid like that.
I remember when these were 60p a carton. They are just taking advantage of people who don't want drink dairy for some reason or other, and the vegan hippies are playing right into their trap.

I think Hukd people know what should be done here.
As we know when we abstain from a product and no one buys it, it becomes dirt-cheap because the manufacturers and retailers know it simply Won't sell at that silly price, so just a suggestion but wait until it's a reasonable price to buy. £1.00 per carton isn't terrible but shouldn't be more than 80p for what it is.

Is the alpro rice milk included in this offer?

There is no good reason why anyone in this day and age should still be drinking cow's milk. Cow's produce milk for their babies not for us. The dairy industry is terribly cruel and exploitative and I would much rather pay a little extra for a product that is not derived from such suffering.

Also some Cow's milk is full of hormones, other drugs and puss, and is known to contribute to poor skin conditions such as Acne.
#14
Thanks for this. just been to my local Sainsbury's and grabbed a crate of Coconut.

This is good stuff, with wholegrain oats and Lucy Bee Coconut oil as a post workout carb meal.

They have Almond and Hazelnut on offer too.

You mean the nanograms in a glass of milk that will have no effect? Or do you mean like growth hormone/steroids which are illegal in the EU? Anitbiotics? Doubt it as those on antibiotics are milked out of the system anyway. Cows with a higher somatic cell count, which of course includes pus but that would indicate a severe infection and should have been picked up before stage, than the legal limit are also milked out.

I understand your point but please do not use misinformation. :)

Also out of curiousity do you have source for the skin claim? Haven't heard of that one and I did drink a lot of milk growing up!

Misinformation is something I try and avoid, apologies for not providing links earlier. Also as you'd note if you refer back I was careful to use the word 'some' as generalisations are never helpful or usually true. >

TLDR - yes it's at the beginning, I just think you might just stand by your "some" point that's all. Saying "some" milk is "full of" x,y and z is about as relevent as saying careful out there some snakes are poisonous. This despite snakes in the UK being rare and only one is venomous compared to the large numbers worldwide. Thanks for your effort to provide links and hope you find what I have written somewhat interesting at least. :)

True you did say some however "full of hormones" is irrelevant to this country and definately misleading. There are nanograms of some hormones which have no effect. Considering the average amount of milk consumed per person per day is less than half a pint we are talking minute amounts of anything. You say "contributes" to acne which is a bit vague however the sources you provide gernerally argue that milk is the cause of acne. It is my opinion that milk may make acne worse in those that are genetically predisposed to acne and susceptable to being affected by milk but will not cause acne itself. However the general consensus is that diet does not significantly affect acne. I will go through your sources to just give another perspective on them.

Acne >

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19243483

This is a review article which summarises most of the milk acne studies. It should be pointed out that there aren't many and they are all flawed or limited in some way. Dr Melnik also seems to hold very unique views in this and many papers so I would urge caution in considering his papers as evidence.

One of his papers states: "Both, restriction of milk consumption or generation of less insulinotropic milk will have an enormous impact on the prevention of epidemic western diseases like obesity, diabetes mellitus, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and acne." This guy thinks just milk and milk proteins are the cause of all the most popular diseases and not drinking it will solve everything. I hope you are somewhat as skeptical as I am from reading this.

On the paper linked he indicates milk is bad for bones because it causes "accelerated bone growth and density". Dairy products contain calcium, potassium and vitamin D which is recommended as part of our diets to improve bone health and is associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular diseas, type 2 diabetes and help to lower blood pressure, i.e. helps prevent a some of the diseases he lists. As we get older bone density decreases but milk will help accelerate density which helps contradict his claims that milk is bad.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4260090

Did you read that one? ;)
"These results show that ingestion of milk could not be the cause of acne on the basis of its conjugated hormone content. "

http://www.societavegetariana.org/site/uploads/5d20f3f1-7a2f-8b2c.pdf

This is a retrospective study from 2005 in which nurses were asked to fill a questionnaire in 1998 about what they ate at high school. Now these nurses were aged 25-42 so we are talking recollection from about 10 years to up to 30 years ago! Acne in this case is also defined loosely.

http://drhyman.com/blog/2011/02/11/do-milk-and-sugar-cause-acne/ I refuse to even consider a "scientist" with such financial bias as this one and it doesn't suprise me he is an advocate of "functional medicine" i.e. alternative medicine. Any "doctor" selling a health or detox plan that promises to reverse diabetes for a fee isn't a doctor in my eyes.

http://www.acneeinstein.com/does-milk-cause-acne/
This actually denounces Mark Hyman's article and the nurse one you just linked to. It also mentions the Dr Melnik paper I quoted earlier.

Acneeinstein (AE) then states the next 2 studies by the author of the nurse study showed that more than 2 servings per day had a 20% more chance of acne. However AE then states "during teenage(r years) milk may not increase your risk of getting acne that much" due to the fact teenagers have elevated hormone levels. It should also be noted these studies used unvalidated self-reporting of acne. AE mentions an italian study which uses 205 patients, far too small of a sample size, and of which many had a family history of acne. AE also contradicts themselves in the conclusion - "If we get technical we can say none of these studies proves milk causes acne." then goes on to state milk is very suspect, an opinion of someone who isn't involved in healthcare isn't that helpful.

Milk Contaminents

I didn't state there were no contaminents, I was merely taking issue with your accusation that milk is full of pus. Even if food is harvested and prepared in an operating theatre, we still cook and clean our food properly before eating. To state milk is full of infection is an exaggeration.

http://www.fao.org/docrep/004/T0218E/T0218E03.htm

A good source.

http://www.food-info.net/uk/qa/qa-saf14.htm

Again stating what I have stated. Milk is treated and stored to limit the effects of contamination just like you would with any food to preserve or prepare it.

http://scialert.net/fulltext/?doi=ijds.2007.104.115

An Indian article from 2005, hardly relevant to the UK with our strict requirements.

http://animalrights.about.com/od/animalsusedforfood/a/MilkHealth.htm

With respect to the section on contaminants, this is referring to the dangers of growth hormone which is illegal in the EU and is thus irrelevant here. Not only does our milk not have high IGF-1 levels but the statement by the CPC (a untrustworthy source imo) is misinformation and nothing has been proved.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2012050/The-cocktail-20-chemicals-glass-milk.html

"20 samples of cow’s milk bought in Spain and Morocco", not as relevant to the UK and a very small sample size. "The doses of drugs were far too small to have an effect on anyone drinking them". Says it all really but as I say contamination is in all foods.
