JOI is a line of clean label, nut-based plant milk concentrates that can be used for wide variety of plant-based needs. With a shelf life of up to 18 months, JOI makes fresh DIY almond and cashew milk easy and more accessible than ever. With no added sugars and no preservatives, JOI - which stands for Just One Ingredient- is a single-ingredient blend, made only from cold milled almonds; with each serving boasting 8g of healthy fats, 3g of protein and 2g of fiber. Currently available in two nut base blends: Almond and Cashew (Almond, Cashew, Organic Almond and Organic Cashew), JOI's concentrates are made from whole, natural ingredients that, when blended with water, create the cleanest and most nutritious plant-based milks on the market. Certified Non- GMO and Kosher, Organic, Whole 30 Approved, Vegan, Paleo, Keto and Gluten-Free, JOI's nut bases are also the first of its kind, creating a whole new category in the food industry-- a fully customizable, versatile, clean, instant plant milk base. Not only a leader in the plant-based food world, JOI is also environmentally-conscious- helping to reduce milk carton waste with each JOI container able to make up to 7 quarts of plant milk. Investors include Mr. 305 himself, Pitbull, and celebrity Nutritionist and Author Marco Borges.
Co-Founders, Tony, Izzy Shu, and Dave, connected in grad school when they realized each made their own almond milk by hand for different reasons. Tony wanted fresh milk that fit with his vegan lifestyle; Izzy wanted to reduce her carbon footprint by eliminating milk carton waste; and Dave wanted to manage his sensitivity to dairy. JOI was born from the shared goal of creating high-quality, delicious, and environmentally-conscious plant-based milk that’s far superior to the stuff you’re used to finding at the local supermarket, without all the time and energy of traditional homemade plant milk. At JOI, the mission is to reimagine what we consume for total food freedom which is why the company stands for Just One Ingredient, literally.
