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.
