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.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Yep, get tested for celiac.  You have plenty of digestive symptoms to indicate it.

      Hi Richie, It definitely sounds like you got glutened.  Over here in the USA they can't label foods gluten-free if they are made from gluten ingredients, period.  So your barley drink would not be labeled gluten-free here.  A while back I read something about the testing for gluten in foods not being as accurate for detecting barley hordein as it is for wheat gliaden.  So the gluten-free testing (if they do any) that your drink maker does may not be reliable. Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition.  So the immune system starts reacting when it detects gluten and damages the gut lining.  An immune reaction is not like a food poisoning event, where most of the damage is only while the food is actually in your system and then ends.  An immune reaction can continue for weeks to months.  The immune system is really quite serious about protecting our bodies.  And since it is designed to detect and attack micro-organisms it reacts to tiny amounts of gluten. Wheat, barley, and rye are the main gluten grains that affect celiacs.  But some celiacs also react to oat gluten.

      Hi Richie,  Glad you are feeling better. I wondered have you been officially diagnosed with coeliac disease? Just wondering as you say you are anaemic, that is one of the symptoms of coeliac disease, along with other general malnutrition. You don't need to eat meat for iron though, you can get it from non-heme foods, like spinach or parsley. Just be careful with the drink with barley, it may be that you only start to have symptoms if you consume a lot of it, but if you have coeliac disease the damage is still been done to your gut regardless of whether you have symptoms or not, which will ultimately lead to malnutrition as well as other things.

      I think, if all this is caused by glutening, it could be that it takes a while to work its way out of your system. I should explain about what I said about organic broccoli.   I don't have a problem with organic food,  in fact, I buy organic milk and carrots all the time, but I don't want to try organic broccoli in case it is the broccoli that is the problem, not the insecticide.    I meant to ask, are you a coeliac or is it non-coeliac gluten intolerance that you have?   I wonder what sort of support you get in Australia for these conditions once diagnosed?   Here in the UK I think the understanding is that if new gastro symptoms have lasted for more than six weeks it needs to be investigated.   I have found this very helpful advice because I do get odd twinges of pain and sometimes changes in bowel movements (sorry if tmi) but they rarely last more than a couple of weeks.   If they do persist I mention it to my gastroenteroligist and he follows it up.  I recently had a sigmoidoscopy for left sided pain and they found nothing.  Turns out it was to do with lactose intolerance, but I always imagine the worse!    
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
