Are Almond Breeze® cartons recyclable?
Both shelf stable and refrigerated cartons along with milk and juice cartons are recycled through a simple, well-established process called ‘hydrapulping.’ The high-quality fiber is used in the production of paper products such as tissue and paper towels and fine writing paper. In some cases, the plastic / foil residual is being recycled into high-end plastic lumber products.
Nearly 12 million households in 26 states in the US have the ability to recycle shelf stable packages and milk and juice cartons curbside and the numbers keep growing.
Check with your local recycling center to confirm that the container is recycled in your area. Almond Breeze cartons can be recycled after removing plastic screw caps or plastic spout.
Are Almond Breeze® products non-GMO?
All Almond Breeze varieties, except the Hint of Honey varieties, are Non-GMO Project Verified.
Are Almond Breeze® products pasteurized?
Yes. Shelf stable Almond Breeze is produced via a process called ‘aseptic’. The aseptic process is a closed process and is a form of pasteurization and commercial sterilization which utilizes a very high temperature as required by federal regulations.
Refrigerated Almond Breeze® is produced via ultra-pasteurized HTST (High Temperature, Short Time) process. Ultra high heat eliminates all viable pathogens to ensure product is safe. The Ultrapasteurized product when packed in a specially designed protective packaging results in an extended shelf life (ESL).See all FAQs
