More Australians are opting for milk alternatives, with one in six now 100% dairy-free. This is great news for the plant milk market, including Califia Farms, the California-based brand, which has on-the-ground operations in Australia.

Rising to the demand, Califia Farmshave launched three new nutritious plant milk into Australia. These include Original Oat Milk, Vanilla Oat Milk, and Unsweetened Almond Barista Blend.

“A lot of people worry that replacing dairy milk with plant-based alternatives will mean they’re not getting key nutrients, but it’s not the case if you choose wisely. Califia’s new plant milks are not only delicious, but all have no sugar added, and are fortified with an excellent source of calcium and Vitamin D. Plus oat milk is a source of dietary fibre which is important for gut health,” says Rebecca Gawthorne, Sydney dietitian and nutritionist.

Currently over half the Australian population consume inadequate calcium with 73% of women not meeting their calcium needs, while 23% of Aussies have a Vitamin D deficiency.

Califia Farms’ new Original Oat Milk, Vanilla Oat Milk and Almond Barista Blend will be available exclusively at Woolworths nationally in the long-life milk aisle.

They join Califia’s extremely popular Oat Barista Blend which can also be found in independent supermarkets and at Woolworths where it is the fastest-selling premium oat milk in the long-life milk aisle. Oat Barista is also one of the leading barista oat milks in Australia served in over 6,000 cafes.

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
