What is the best vegan mylk? | One Good mylk is all you need!Posted on
So, you've been hearing a lot about "mylk" and you're ready to try it, but you're not sure where to begin.
Or maybe, you've found yourself flipping through recipes, only to remember that you still haven't found a mylk alternative that just...works.
It's overwhelming. We know. We've been there. And we're here to make it easier. Read on to discover why One Good Mylk is all you need!
One Good Story
One Good truly started when we gave up with dairy alternatives. We tried everything, from store-bought to homemade, and we weren't impressed. Alternatives either had a strange taste or were too expensive. Even worse, they didn't behave like dairy.
We gave it our best so you don’t have to. After hundreds of experiments and countless taste tests, we found that a blend of cashews and oats did the trick. Our mylk boiled, frothed, and even tasted like dairy. Finally! When you're hungry, anything is possible.
Our intentions have been good from the start. We wanted to make a sustainable, delicious, cruelty-free milk alternative that anyone could fall in love with. We did that, but earlier this year, we realised we could do more when we discovered barnyard millets.
After adding them to the mix, we found we could rely less on expensive imports, keep things local, and make it even tastier- it's a win-win-win!
What is mylk made of?
Soy milk. Rice milk. Coconut milk. There are at least 17 types of mylk people can buy around the world. On top of that, there are thousands of ingredients that mylk can be made from. But does there need to be a mylk for each one? We don't think so.
We were the first Indian brand to throw out the idea that you only had to use one ingredient to make mylk. Today, we’re one of the most trusted, recommended mylk brands and we believe this has something to do with it.
Because instead of focusing on a single ingredient to make the mylk, we focused on the flavour, texture, colour, and aroma of our product.
Every plant-based ingredient has its strengths. Cashews are creamy, oats are light and mild, and millets taste great & add nutrients. By combining the three of them, you get a mylk that is creamy, light, delicious, and neutral in taste!
Sticking to one ingredient, or a 'hero ingredient' doesn't allow us to explore different tastes and textures, and ultimately replace cow's milk. It allows us to continue improving our recipe. But you won’t have to worry about what’s in our mylk, because it’s always going to be clean!
And functionality is so important to us. With a solid mylk, you can make great tasting cheeses, yoghurts, cream, and more! This is what milk was made for, and it’s our mission to replace it with an alternative that works without harming animals.
Does vegan mylk curdle?
One of the biggest challenges is finding a mylk alternative that doesn't curdle when it hits piping hot liquid. Who wants a cup of coffee with curds floating around?
We had two main goals in mind when we made this mylk. 1) Make it function like dairy and 2) Prevent it from curdling in one of milk's most important applications: coffee and chai. Now, you can enjoy your masala chai in peace!

Does plant-based mylk taste good?
You know how some mylks have an unpleasant smell or aftertaste? Many people have reported vegan mylk smelling and tasting like cardboard, of all things. That doesn’t sound appealing to anyone.
Well, we found that adding barnyard millets to the mix has solved this problem! Our mylk has a neutral taste, even our sugar-free variety.
Millets also gave our mylk a more velvety, smooth, and round mouthfeel. You can make the richest hot chocolate, the creamiest coffee, the thickest gravy, and the spongiest cakes!
Why is it spelled mylk and not milk?
Can you make mylk at home?
Of course! There's an unlimited number of ways to make mylk at home. It's one of the most important staples in India, and some people will prefer to make it in their home.
One Good Mylk takes all the guesswork out of it, and it's shelf stable so it can be stored in your kitchen for future use (or for emergencies!)
You can skip the mess and stress knowing we use high quality ingredients. Your taste buds and body will thank you for it.
Hopefully we've given you some food for thought on this complex topic. There's plenty of options, but there's only one way to find out.
So try our chocolate mylk, sugar-free mylk, or regular mylk. Whichever you pick, you can feel good knowing they're all free from gluten, soy, lactose, cholesterol, and animal cruelty. Speaking of which, we wrote about vegan mylk vs cow’s milk. It’s worth a read.
