Are you ready for technology to make your dairy alternatives instead of people? NotCo, a self-proclaimed tech company out of Chile, has launched NotMilk in the U.S. market. It’s not milk, but it was created to deliver a taste and texture that replicates dairy-based milk. So it isn’t milk, but it’s supposed to fool our taste buds.
How do they do it? NotCo has developed proprietary artificial intelligence and machine-learning algorithms to create formulas that mimic animal-based foods using plant-based ingredients. In other words, AI created the NotMilk recipe instead of a chef or food scientist.
NotMilk is Not Milk, but AI Says it Tastes Just Like It
NotCo received backing from several prominent venture capitalists, including Jeff Bezos. So it isn’t surprising that NotMilk is launching first in Whole Foods stores. It comes in two varieties, each of which helps to fill a half-full niche for slightly richer milk alternatives. The ingredients are quite similar to Ripple Plant Milk, but with a few interesting additions, like chicory root, pineapple, and cabbage juices.
We have the pertinent details below, but be sure to leave your unbiased rating and review below once you buy and try NotMilk. It helps others make an informed purchasing decision.

Note: There is another company called NotMilk NYC. They’ve been around longer, but NotMilk from NotCo does have a trademark on the name. We’re not sure how that will shake out. But these two product lines are very different. NotMilk NYC is small-batch nut milk produced by real hands with simple whole food ingredients. NotMilk from NotCo is mass produced with technology for a mainstream appeal and price point. This post is about NotCo’s product.
