Vegan-Environment and Health,
thanks for the information. i tried making almond milk here in pilani. it tasted good but i couldn't store it for more than 2 days probably because i didn't blend the almonds properly.btw. do you know how to make almond butter?
Prashant,My experience in India is the same. I am not sure what the reason is. I can possibly think of two:1. Refrigerators in US maintain lower temperatures.2. Unfortunately, in US, most food is irradiated which kills any living bacteria. Since the producers/stores are not obligated to disclose that information, we will probably never know.
Kasakaay,Thank you for the reply. I also think that refrigerators in India may not be equiped for storing food for long time. I remember storing the uncooked chapatis for about a week or so. (Many people actually store it for more than a month! But I didn't try that.) However, here in India, it is not possible to store the food for more than 2 days even if stored in deep freezer. Milk, for example, spoils if kept for more than 24 hours in refrigerator.I was more keen to know about vegan milk because it is not available here. I am unable to get even soymilk here in Pilani. Moreover, making vegan milk in very small quantity is not possible. I remember making rice milk with the minimum quantity of rice. I landed up getting 2-3 litres of rice milk and didn't know how to consume it in 2 days. :D So I left that thought.
Prashant,Based on what I am reading, there is a growing interest in India about veganism. So you should start seeing vegan milks at least Soy milk sold everywhere soon. You may want to try this:http://sharan-india.org/recipes/dairy-meat-alternatives/peanut-milk/
