Tiger nuts, which form the basis of the milk, are grown underground in the root system of the plant Cyperus esculentus, which is a non-intensive crop closely related to grasses. This year, I'm experimenting with growing the plants in Bristol. All ingredients in the mylk are selected as being from sustainable sources.
The standard tiger mylk variety has been specially formulated to work great in tea and coffee, whilst the tiger & hemp has added vitamins and nutrients, and is best in cereals, desserts and for cooking.
The milk is a good source of iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium, and the Tiger & Hemp has added protein, omega fatty acids and vitamin E.
Tiger mylk ingredients: Filtered water, tiger nuts (16% / Spain), almonds (Spain / organic) sunflower oil (UK), sunflower lecithin , Atlantic sea salt (Portugal / organic)
Tiger & Hemp mylk ingredients: Filtered water, tiger nuts (16% / Spain), Hemp seeds (China / organic), almonds (Spain / organic), sunflower oil (UK), sunflower lecithin , Atlantic sea salt (Portugal / organic)
The mylks settle and seperate a little, the same as you'd get in unhomogenized cow milk. Its all good stuff, so give the bottle a good shake before pouring!
The mylk is delivered in 750ml bottles, and is thicker and richer than anything you can buy in the shops. It is pasteurised, and whilst it is recommended that you use it within 4 days of opening, it can last up to a week, and longer if the bottle is unopened (and kept chilled).
So, the first time you buy the mylk, you also buy the bottle. Its yours, so take care of it! Give it a good rinse after use and put it out again before 7pm on Tuesdays. If you lose or break a bottle, you'll have to buy a new one. Every week, I will swap an empty one for one full of mylk.
