North Dakota company introduces new dairy alternative, Flaxmilk

Despite the USDA's continuing insistence of consuming dairy with their new food plate, there is a new dairy alternative making the rounds. Flax USA has introduced their new product, Flaxmilk.

It is made from non-GMO seeds and contains just as much calcium as cow's milk and only 50 calories per serving. It also packs in omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 so you can ditch adding that nasty fish oil to your food.

For those worried about not getting enough b12 in your vegan lifestyle, 1 cup of Flaxmilk contains 25% of your daily need. I wouldn't give up your soy milk completely just yet though, the nutrient that Flaxmilk seems to be lacking is protein.

Flaxmilk is now available in Walmart (weird) stores in original and vanilla flavors.
