Shelf Life, Storage & Packing

No - if the cartons or bottles are unopened, you can safely keep any of our products at room temperature until you’re ready to enjoy! After opening, keep refrigerated and use within 7-10 days.

Unopened, you can enjoy your Elmhurst product until the date stamped on the package (this will vary depending on when your batch was made). After opening, store in the refrigerator and use within 7 to 10 days.

No preservatives here! All Elmhurst products are packed and sealed in a sterile, airless environment (aka aseptically packed) so if kept sealed they can last much longer without additives even at room temperature. But, once opened you’ll need to refrigerate and use within 7-10 days.

Because we don’t use gums or emulsifiers, some separation is natural especially if the product hasn’t been touched for a while. Simply give the carton a good shake and it should come back together.

Barista Editions & Creamers

While our Barista Editions were specifically made for coffee, our Milked Cashews is great on its own, in smoothies, to bake with, and in coffee too! It steams and froths the way baristas need it to, so we’ve marked it Barista Approved.

About Elmhurst

Yes and no. After closing Elmhurst Dairy in 2016, owner Henry Schwartz introduced Elmhurst 1925 in 2017 as a plant-based company. These days, Elmhurst focuses on delivering the best plant-based alternatives made with simpler, better ingredients and more nutrition from plants.

1925 is the year Elmhurst Dairy was founded in Queens, NY. When we made the switch from dairy to 100% plant-based, we kept the Elmhurst name and the year “1925” in honor of Henry's family legacy.

Elmhurst is based in Elma, NY – a suburb of Buffalo. And yes! We make all of our products right in Elma.

"Milked" refers to the result of our special HydroRelease™ process, transforming whole grains, nuts, and seeds into naturally creamy and delicious, nutrient rich beverages.

There actually weren’t any. For over 90 years Elmhurst Dairy was exclusively a dairy processing company, sourcing its milk from independent dairy farms and cooperatives.
