THE PLANET-FRIENDLY PLANT-BASED MILK
- Sesame is a highly sustainable and durable crop. Sesame thrives in arid climates and can produce a successful yield with little water, especially in comparison to other crops normally used in the production of plant milks. Almond milk and other nut milks (including macadamia and cashew) are the largest segment of plant-based milks in the U.S. market, representing more than 60% of total share. Almonds are water-intensive to cultivate and require pesticides and imported pollinators for a successful yield, and as a result, almond production may be harmful to bee populations and escalating drought conditions in key almond producing areas are creating serious challenges for almond production.
- Sesame can self-pollinate and does not require bees to produce a significant yield, resulting in less harm to bees and other pollinators.
- Sesame requires few supplementary agricultural inputs to cultivate and is naturally resistant to pests, curtailing the need for the application of herbicides and pesticides.
- Sesame is simple and fast to cultivate as a crop, and is grown successfully around the globe in arid climates, typically adjacent to the areas where sesame has become an important part of cuisine (Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa). With a seed-to-harvest time of approximately 100 to 135 days and its unique drought tolerance, sesame production can be rapidly and inexpensively scaled to meet the demand for sesame milk.
Plant-based milks are used daily in the home in multiple ways, including:
