Frequently Asked Questions

Where do your almonds come from?

We source almonds from South Australia, and use Australian oats too!

Are they non-GMO and organic?

They are non- GMO but are not organic.

Do you activate your almonds?

Sure do.

What percentage of almonds do you use in your almond milk?

A whopping 9% in our Unsweetened Almond Milk, which is one of the highest in any leading Almond Milk brand on the market. We also use whole, natural almonds which includes the skin

Why do you use Gellan Gum?

We use gellan gum in our products to maintain a smooth consistency because we used to get so many complaints that it was splitting! It is a 100% natural ingredient.

Do your products contain Carrageenan?

No, our products do not contain Carrageenan.

What is the calcium content of your products?

That depends on the product. The majority of our products do not have added calcium, as we know that a lot of our consumers choose Inside Out for our unadulterated process and ingredients. However, we recognise that there is a big community of non-dairy drinkers, who like to ensure they're still getting a good dose of calcium from their milk, and therefore we have Inside Out Plus: Calcium Enriched, which has 320mg per serving (40% of your Recommended Daily Intake*).
*Percentage Daily Intakes (%) are based on an average adult diet of 8700kj

Do you use a lot of water in the production of almond milk?

Something we hear often is that it takes a lot of water to produce almond milk, so we want to be as honest as possible on the topic. All manufacturing businesses use water for cleaning, sanitation and health and safety. Almonds specifically, do use quite a lot of water to grow but if you want to put it in relative terms compared to dairy, almond milk uses considerably less water to produce.

Does the seasonality of almonds affect the taste of Inside Out Almond Milk?

Almonds are harvested once a year and we use whole, natural almonds, so there can be very slight variation season to season –that’s all part of choosing a natural product.

What’s the difference between your fresh range, and your UHT range?

Our fresh range is where it all started – we chop up Aussie almonds and oats, and mix with water and any other ingredients. Then it is pressed, filtered and bottled before shipping out to stores. An extra step in our UHT process is that it’s pasteurised at a higher temperature, and bottled into tightly sealed cartons which protects the product for even longer.

Why have you launched a UHT range?

We receive a lot of feedback from our customers that they’d like the convenience of Inside Out milk in a long-life carton, and it was a no brainer to combine that with eco-friendly packaging too! We are still the same homegrown brand that you guys love, and are thrilled to share our latest project with you.

Is almond milk easy to just make at home?

Well we won’t stop you! But once you decide to give it a crack, you will realise it takes a fair while to make the product from scratch, and after you’ve done all the hard work to make it, you have to clean everything up and then you only have 3-4 days to consume it! So we do the hard work for you and give you the shelf life you need to consume at your own pace. A definite win-win situation.

Where is it made?

Our production site is located in Silverwater, NSW, AUSTRALIA.

What are the health benefits of ‘Activated Almonds’?

Health Beneficial’s claim that soaking almonds in water for a certain amount of time help activate the full nutritional health benefits of almonds, although there is no proven evidence to support this claim.

Is it lactose free?

Inside Out products are 100% lactose free.

And… Cholesterol free?

Yep!

What else are they good for?

They’re also vegan, and most of our products satisfy keto and paleo diets.

Are your products gluten free?

The short answer is that our Oat Milks and Wake Up range contain gluten, and all other products may contain traces of it.

The longer answer is that Oat Milk contains avenin, which is a protein that Australia deems to contain gluten, but this is a little bit controversial, as that conclusion differs from many other countries around the world.

Is it safe for pregnant/ lactating women?

You should always consult your doctor before you try something new.

Is it safe for diabetics?

We think it is but we are not currently qualified to tell you that. To be sure, ask your doctor.

I’ve heard non-dairy milk isn’t as nutritious as cow’s milk – is this true?

Typically, that’s correct – non-dairy milk has to be fortified with nutrients in order to match dairy. So with our Milkish range, we’ve done just that! It has all the calcium and protein of dairy, as well as vitamin B12 and D.

Where is your almond milk stocked?

We’re available in major supermarkets and cafes across the country – please use our Where To Find Us page to check out the locations near you

I want your milks stocked at my favourite store. How do I suggest to them they carry it?

Visit your local store and tell them you’ll never come back unless they stock Inside Out! You can suggest they reach out to our sales team who can be contacted at info@insideoutng.com.au.

How can I use your almond milk?

Pretty much anything you use dairy milk for, you can use our almond milk e.g. smoothies, coffee, cereal, muesli, or just on its own. Do whatever you want!

For the best coffee, we definitely recommend trying our Barista Almond Milk, or Milkish range – these have been specially crafted to complement quality coffee!

Can I drink it after the Used By Date?

Um, we definitely don’t recommend it.

Can I freeze it?

It’s not recommended because it’ll change the consistency of the almond milk but if you don’t mind it then sure, go for it!

How long will it last once opened?

Typically, our milk will last up to 5 days once opened, when kept refrigerated.

How do I store your almond milk?

With our fresh range, please please keep it refrigerated below 4 degrees celsius at all times! But our UHT products can be stored at room temperature until opened.

Why don’t you use glass bottles or recyclable cartons? Also, are your plastic bottles BPA free?

We've thought long and hard about this. Plastic bottles are a better choice than glass for us for a few reasons:
• Plastic is a lot lighter than glass, meaning that less energy (and carbon) is consumed in producing and delivering each bottle
• Plastic uses much less energy than glass to be recycled
• We don’t bottle in recyclable cartons because we want to be as transparent as possible and let people see what they’re drinking

Of course, the plastic bottles that we use are 100% BPA free. Also, our 350ml bottles are made from 50% recycled materials. Sustainability is something we take very seriously.

Are your long-life milk cartons eco-friendly?

Glad you asked! Yes, the carton is made from 63% renewable materials. In short, it’s mostly made from plants, which absorb CO2 and reduce our climate impact. The paper used is also sourced from FSC® certified forests. Basically, every tree that’s used gets replaced to protect our forests.

What is your brand's commitment to sustainability?

We’re always trying to find way to be more sustainable – our efforts include limiting water consumption, reducing wastage, more energy efficient manufacturing equipment, using as much recycled plastic as possible in our packaging and ensuring it’s all recyclable (while keeping our ear to the ground on innovations in this area).
As we grow, we’ll do the opposite to other manufacturers and will invest more in this area, rather than less.

Do you use Australian Ingredients?

We source premium Australian ingredients where possible, and our almonds are grown in South Australia (we might be slightly biased, but we think these ones are the best). Although in some cases, we have to outsource premium ingredients from other countries such as our coconut flesh, as those ingredients don’t grow so well in the Australian climate.
