In line with the statement made by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 65 percent of the world population has an intolerance to lactose, while 14 percent prefer a vegan diet. In addition to all these figures, with the emergence of the fact that cow milk consumption is not very beneficial for health, interest in plant-based milk varieties has increased considerably in recent years. However, the history of these milk varieties is very old. While soy milk was first consumed in China at the end of the 19th century, almond milk draws attention in many recipes in the 13th century Egyptian and Iranian cuisine cookbooks. The oldest type of herbal milk in history is Southeast Asia and India oak coconut milk. Today, the herbal dairy industry has a market of 19.5 billion dollars in the food and beverage world, with many different options besides soy, almond and coconut milk.

Today's herbal milk and dairy products, which are derived from raw nut products such as aju, hazelnut, almond, pumpkin seed, walnut and grains such as rice, oats and quinoa, continue to develop and renew. One of the most striking examples of this is the pistachio milk that took its place on the shelves in recent months. What makes this milk variety developed by Tache company different from other vegetable milks is that it does not contain any fat. The addition of rapeseed and canola oil is used, which acts as an emulsifier in many types of herbal milk, especially oat milk. These types of processed fat can cause health problems in some people. The fact that pistachio milk contains 100 percent natural fat causes it to contain less calories, carbohydrates and of course sugar. In addition, in line with the statement made by the UNESCO Water Education and Culture working group, since pistachio production requires less water (about 25 percent) compared to almonds, the carbon footprint it leaves on the world decreases at the same rate. This makes it an environmentally friendly type of milk.

Introduced as one of the rising green drinks of 2021, pistachio milk contains only 50 calories per serving, and offers a delicious taste when consumed with coffee, smoothie and oats. Let's see when this trend that started in America will start to affect the whole world.
