For years, I was consuming rice milk by Vitasoy. I had tried a few dairy free milks and settled on that brand's product because it tasted the best. It was a firm favourite to have on my cereal in the morning. Sure, it was a bit watery, but the taste! It was sweet, but not overly so.
And then I heard that Vitasoy's parent company invests in animal testing. It has been pretty hard trying to track solid information on this, but to play it safe, I switched to Bonsoy soymilk by Spiral Foods. This has to be the creamiest non-dairy, vegan friendly milk I have had. The catch is, it is not in the least bit sweet. Having said that, it does make for better cooking - especially for savoury recipes. I use to use the rice milk and it was too sweet and too runny for cooking with, really.
I am now in the process of trying various other brands and other types of non-dairy milks, such as rice, soy and almond milk. I have heard of hazelnut milk but have yet to find it in the shops. There is oat milk available, but this is not gluten free. I shall blog about these as I try them out. Variety is a good thing!
Bonsoy is available in major supermarkets such as Coles and Woolworths, making it super easy to find.
Oh, and as a side note, Spiral Foods also does some excellent gluten free, vegan crackers, snack foods, spreads, sauces, etc. But more on that on a future blog post...
