Has Anyone Out There Had Issues With Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk Or Any Applegate Farms Products?

I purchased the grassfed beef hotdogs and I think I'm beginning to feel symptoms flaring up. Has anyone had any issues with their products? I also purchased Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk -- so that is a possibility as well.

I'm not sure what the grass feed hot dogs are, or what brand to identify them.  And I don't do Silk, so...I guess I'm not too helpful, but attentive. :)

Not sure about the Silk products, but I have never had a problem with any of the Applegate Farms products.

The applegate hotdogs are gluten free.

 

Silk. Whitewave Foods, the company that revolutionized the soy milk industry, also makes almond milk and coconut milk in refrigerated cartons and shelf-stable unrefrigerated boxes. Flavors include original, vanilla, dark chocolate and unsweetened. Silk nut milk products contain no gluten ingredients. However, Silk does not test for gluten cross-contamination in its products, although it does state that "we do not make our products using any wheat, wheat gluten, rye, oat, barley or malt ingredients. Our facilities do not handle or receive these ingredients in their operations so we would not expect the presence of them in our products." The bottom line: Use caution when considering Silk nut milk products.

Those sound very safe. They use no gluten in any of their production & packaging facilities. They don't test and add that cost on to the product.

I agree. No worries there.

Testing, and passing that cost on to the consumer would be positively moronic, when they say flat out that they handle absolutely no gluten containing ingredients. What they are saying is that they are making a product that is naturally gluten free, and therefore testing would be a complete and utter waste of everyone's money. No caution needed.

Amen, Sister!

I would like to point out that many companies, under just a " no gluten ingredients but maybe shared machinery" would have said a product is gluten-free. Silk could legally call their product gluten free.

It depends on your level of sensitivity.  I found that I needed to keep track of what I ate, and stop eating it if it bothered me.  Just because someone else was able to eat it did not mean that I was able to eat it.

 

That was a painful lesson to learn.  It isn't true for everyone, but if it is true for you, you need to be informed.

 

I did have problems with Silk products, but I am in the "super sensitive" category..

I drink a lot of Silk Almond milk. I love the Chocolate. I drink some of their milk pretty nearly everyday since being diagnosed 3 years ago this coming November. I have tried Coconut milk and another brand of Almond milk but I love Silk Almond the best. I'm pretty certain they are safe.

That's awful I'm so sorry!!! When in doubt I stay away from stuff so I agree with you the poster might need to stay clear of this product. I've not had any problems myself.

We have had problems with Silk almondmilk.  It took me a couple days to figure out where the problem was coming from, but we finally figured it had to be the milk.  We usually use Almond Breeze, but we got Silk because it was on sale and my son (three years old) was SO sick all of a sudden.  He is very sensitive, so that may be it.   I know we have had it in the past, though, with no problems.  Maybe a batch got contaminated somehow?  I don't know, but I do know that I hate seeing him crying and writhing with stomach pain!  Poor guy!  As for applegate farms, we have never had an issue.  We have had the turkey dogs and turkey bacon.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
