homemade almond milk

As homemade almond milk is unfortified, I would like to be able to choose this as an option on Cronometer, instead of just using the 'unsweetened almond milk' option, as I'm pretty sure this is a breakdown of a fortified product. I found this info re nutritional breakdown of homemade almond milk, and wondered if this could be used to create a 'product' on Cronometer for homemade almond milk. I understand that it's possible to use the 'create your own recipe' option, but as the pulp of the almonds is thrown out at the end, it becomes a guessing game how many nutrients actually remain in the milk. https://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/custom/3155994/1

  • Based on the external nutrition data you found, the entry "Almond Milk, Plain, Original, Unsweetened" in the NCCDB probably has added vitamin A, D and calcium. I would create a copy of the NCCDB almond milk and fix those numbers. Should be fairly close after.

  • This was helpful, I made it a custom food, took out Vitamin A and D, changed calcium to 300, since it's 378 per cup and I figure I'm not eating all the pulp. My milk has only 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup almonds to 8 of water. My blender makes soup so after 3 minutes of blending it has thickened enough to make me happy. Yeah, watery for others but the price of almonds or any nuts, wow! Thank you for idea.

    This is what I came for, thanks!
    Anybody else doing this, 1/4 cup of almonds is only 87.42 mg of calcium. No idea how much is lost during the straining process. I had to change a few vitamins that showed way more than what almonds actually have. And BTW homemade almond milk strained through a cheese cloth is extremely delicious! Enjoy!
