Táche, the first pistachio-based nut milk, has launched in the United States. Helmed by Roxana Saidi, the brand is bringing this new milk to the market.

Saidi spoke to Force Brands about the inspiration behind the product, “Growing up, I was surrounded by pistachios as they were the go-to snack in our household and quickly became one of my favorite nuts. Years later, at a long family lunch in Paris, I had a full-circle moment when I was craving an almond milk latte. I realized that the snack I’ve loved all my life was not only flavorful and healthy but could also be turned into milk. The lightbulb went off and immediately upon returning to New York City, I started making different versions of pistachio milk in my apartment kitchen.”

And the rest is history. Saidi works with her dad and her fiancee in the business and said getting a supply chain to supply pistachios at the right price was difficult. The vegan, kosher, gluten-free and non-GMO milk is carrageenan-free and is available in stores in the tri-state area and can be purchased online as well.

Pistachio milk is more environmentally friendly than almond milk because it has a lower water footprint. The Táche Original Blend, sweetened with cane sugar, has 240mL serving contains 80 calories, 3.5g fat, 110mg sodium, 6g added sugars and 2g protein.
