Potato milk is a sustainable plant-based alternative

Eva Tornberg of Lund University developed an emulsion technology to blend potatoes and rapeseed oil into potato milk, thus providing a sustainable plant-based alternative to cow milk.

Calculations show that switching to potato milk could lower our carbon footprint by as much as 75%.

But even compared to other plant-based alternatives, potato milk has the sustainability advantage. For example, potatoes require 56 times less water than almonds, and growing potatoes is about twice as efficient as growing oats.

Will potato milk become a viable milk alternative or remain just a fad? Will it live up to its promise in terms of sustainability and nutritional value? Leave us a comment below.
