nutty life farmers market

nutty life founder, caroline, gets it.  her goal with nutty life is to make it easy for you to find healthy, delicious food with clean organic ingredients.

caroline has a major sweet tooth... in college, she would eat frozen yogurt ("fro yo") by the pint.  during her junior year at boston college, she started getting severe stomach aches from eating her beloved fro yo.  she assumed it was lactose intolerance and began the non-dairy journey.  when the stomach aches came back after drinking store-bought almond milk, she got really curious about the connection between what she was putting in her body and how her body felt.

it turns out that both fro yo and typical nut milks have some common ingredients: gums and carrageenan.  both of these additives are used in foods to thicken them & prevent separation.  gums are known to cause bowel issues (i.e. stomach aches) in lab rats.  and carrageenan, the same chemical used to de-ice airplanes, is a known carcinogen, causing colon cancer and bowel inflammation in lab rats.  a common misconception: carrageenan is derived from seaweed, so it must be okay for us to consume.  because of the highly chemical-induced process of converting the seaweed into carrageenan, the seaweed is no longer seaweed at all.  you can learn more about this additive and its harmful effects through the cornucopia institute.

want to learn more about other additives found in your typical alternative milk? we did a ton of research for our business plan & are happy to send you the info.  contact us to learn more!

after learning about what is legally allowed in our food, caroline started reading every ingredient label religiously.  her philosophy: ingredients matter most.  this pivotal moment was just the beginning of her health and wellness journey.  she went on to study at the institute for integrative nutrition & became a certified yoga instructor.  your mind, body, and food are all connected.  

she started making nut milk in 2012 for her own consumption & launched nutty life cashew milks in stores in late 2016.  learn more about our cashew milks here!
