InfoFreako: Stop calling plant-based liquids 'milk'. It confuses James Cromwell.

HairBolus: > Golden Wing is made with just five ingredients: water, barley, sunflower oil, pink Himalayan salt, and shiatake mushroom extract. According to Molson Coors, Golden Wing Barley Milk contains 60% less sugar, 50% more calcium, and twice as much Vitamin D versus 2% milk.Umm the linked website says 7 ingredientshttps://goldenwingofficial.com/Barley Milk (Water, Barley, Barley Malt)Sunflower ExtractCalcium CarbonatePink Himalayan Saltshiatake Mushroom ExtractTFA left out calcium carbonate.I want to know if that was chemically created, sourced from artisanal limestone mines, or derived from organic oyster shells or pig bones.So its slightly flavored barley water.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barley_waterthough I can't find any mention of adding fat to it as the company does with sunflower oil (I mean "sunflower extract").

tintar: hmm, they likely do some shenanigans with the oil to make it the beverage creamy?
FormlessOne: As an aside, you can make barley water at home, easily, and it's pretty damned good in the summer as a way to rehydrate if you're working or playing outside.

tintar: and to continue FormlessOne's thougts of outdoor hydration, these two (non-grain-based) are both delicious for any reason a'tall -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switchel
tintar: if you've ever had genmaicha ("popcorn" tea) with the toasted rice, it's kind of like that but minus the green tea entirely?
FormlessOne: palelizard: FormlessOne: As an aside, you can make barley water at home, easily, and it's pretty damned good in the summer as a way to rehydrate if you're working or playing outside.What's it taste like?If you use plain pearl barley, you get a slight hit of grain, which pairs really well with the lemon. If you toast the barley, it's more like a tea - if you've ever had genmaicha, the toasted grain flavor is reminiscent. It's actually quite nice. I usually make the plain stuff in the summer, and make the toasted stuff when I'm at late-season SCA events - two quarts of that in a Thermos, and I don't miss my tea while I'm waiting for the wife to wake up.
