Is the packaging recyclable?
Great question! Packaging is an interesting one...especially in the food industry where it not only has to serve wrapping but also safety purposes. In all honesty, packaging has been on their minds and challenging them right from the get go and they are always looking for better, more planet friendly materials. The ongoing pandemic is not making it easy as supply chains are challenging. WhatIF Foods' packaging has been sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible, and economically viable manner where they can while staying affordable to all customers.

Most of this impact on our planet is determined by packaging materials and how those materials are produced - and because recycling capabilities vary so much from region to region – WhatIF Foods decided to prioritize renewable packaging as much as possible. WhatIF Foods' ultimate goal is to use only fully recyclable packaging that’s also made from fully recycled or renewable materials. In the meantime, WhatIF Foods working with their packaging suppliers to get as close to 100% renewable and recyclable packaging as they can.

Did you know that most packaging which has a “paper look & feel” is usually coated with a clear plastic film? WhatIF Foods are happy to say that all of their hexagonal boxes do not have that coating and can be fully recycled as cardboard.

BamNut Milk General Questions

What is so good about this milk?
BamNut Milk is significantly more regenerative than all other plant milks. It is a rich source of protein and essential amino acids. One serving (240ml) provides 50%, 20% and 25% RDA of Calcium, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D2 respectively.

How does BamNut Milk taste?
BamNut Milk is milky, creamy and nutty. Can’t imagine it? Try and taste it for yourself!


Why are there particles in BamNut Milk?
Most of the nut milks undergo a process of separation in which there is a residue containing fibre. (e.g. okara from soy bean milk). For WhatIF Foods' BamNut Milk they use the entire nut, leaving no waste in the process. That is also one of the reasons why it is also the most sustainable of all of the plant milks!

What are the different ways to consume & use BamNut Milk?

  • Plain: enjoy the wholesomeness of BamNuts in a refreshing cup of milk

Nutritional Questions 

How much protein is in BamNut Milk?
BamNut Milk has more protein per cup than oat, almond and coconut milk combined! To be precise, 5g per serving (serving size: 1 cup of 240ml)

How much Calcium is in BamNut Milk?
1 cup of milk contains 480mg Calcium per serving compared to 300mg in 1 cup of cow’s milk.

Why have you fortified BamNut Milk with calcium and vitamins D2 & B12?
BamNut Milk can be made without fortifications, but WhatIF Foods wanted to offer you an alternative to cow milk where you don’t have to compromise on your nutritional needs.

Calcium is good for your bones and teeth. Vitamin D2 is needed for the absorption of calcium and is essential for your skin, intestines, kidneys and bones. Finally, vitamin B12 is necessary to maintain a healthy nervous system but it is hard to find it in non-animal products, therefore it has been added to BamNut Milk to prevent consumers who are on a plant-based diet from having a vitamin B12 deficiency.

Is there added sugar in this milk?
No - but that needs a bit of explanation! Even though you might see that their label says that there is “added sugar” in their BamNut Milk (unfortunately, different countries ask for different labels and regulations), WhatIF Foods do not add any sugar to their plant-based milk. WhatIF Foods break down the starch in the BamNut to release simple sugars, similar to how our body breaks down nutrients in ingested food into simple sugars that can be absorbed by the digestive system.
