You love almond, now get to know cashew. Earth's Own Food Company, a leading Canadian dairy alternative beverage company, is proud to announce the expansion of its product line to include another member of the nut family - the nutritious cashew. At only 50 calories per serving (less than 2 percent milk), and made with 100 per cent real cashews, Cashew Fresh is the only Canadian-made beverage that combines the taste and health benefits of cashews for a refreshing, delicious, naturally salty cashew flavour.

Available in two popular flavours - Original and Unsweetened - the new products stay true to Earth's Own Food Company's dedication to offering nutritious, great-tasting beverages that fit a healthy lifestyle. Cashew Fresh is a source of eight essential nutrients, including, magnesium and zinc, an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D, cholesterol-free, low in fat and sodium, and of course, lactose and dairy-free.
