Lots of people are choosing to go with non-dairy milks these days. At Whole Foods Market, we have watched the non-dairy milk category sprout significantly over the last couple of decades. While some people avoid dairy products altogether, there are a lot of folks who are choosing non-dairy milks even if they eat dairy at other times. And this is all good for everyone because the options for non-dairy milk keep getting better and tastier!We look at our product mix all the time and we recognized a need to enhance our non-dairy milk set to make sure we were providing you with affordable, organic options. We always prioritize organics, as we feel that they are the healthiest, most eco-friendly and highest quality products we sell. This is especially important for products that our customers consume daily, like non-dairy milks. After months of behind the scenes wrangling, we are thrilled to present a host of new options for you. Introducing:

Earth Balance Organic Soymilk We're also really excited about some new non-dairy milk products from Earth Balance, a leading producer of natural spreads and nut butters. Earth Balance has agreed to work with us for an exclusive launch of its new line of organic and Non-GMO Project-verified* refrigerated soymilk now available in our stores nationwide! Available in Original, Vanilla, Chocolate and Unsweetened varieties, this smooth and creamy refrigerated soymilk is vegan, free of lactose, cholesterol, dairy, gluten and is an excellent source of calcium and vitamin D.

Earth Balance is also the first refrigerated soymilk to utilize the rigorous practices of the Non-GMO Product Verification Program. GMO stands for "genetically modified organisms" and there are a lot concerns from our customers about products made with GMOs, not to mention that GMOs are not allowed in organic products. You will see the "Non-GMO Project Verified" seal on a number of products in our store, and we expect that number to increase dramatically in the near future. Earlier this year, we announced the enrollment of all of 365 and 365 Organic Everyday Value products in the Non-GMO Project Product Verification Program. Now you can shop knowing that all these new non-dairy milks meet Whole Foods Market's strict quality standards. Give them a try and let us know what you think!
