Need gluten-free Rice/Almond Milk
0

19 posts in this topic

Anyone know which brands of Rice Milk and Almond milk are safe? I have been using the Trader Joe's Rice milk but am not sure if its safe...I assume so since the label says Gluten Free and the equipment it is made on also processes fish and nuts, but again not sure

I love, love, love the new almond milk by Silk. t's right next to the soy milk in the refrigerator section. It is the best one I've had so far and I've also regularly used Almond Dream and Blue Diamond, both are gluten-free.

I know the Rice Dream does but don't know about the Almond. Pacific makes a for sure safe Almond milk.

Problem is that it contains carageenan - not good for sensitive stomachs

I do great on Almond Breeze by Blue Diamond. Use the unsweetened Vanilla on my gluten-free oats in the morning, and use if for almost everything else, as well. No issues here.

I use Trader Joe's Rice Milk (vanilla flavor) & have had no problem with it.

All of Trader Joe's products say they're made on lines shared with wheat, soy, etc; I think they're just being thorough, & have not had any problems with their products.

I like the Turtle Mountain coconut milk. http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/coconut_milk_beverage.html I find it more neutral tasting than the other alternative "milks". I drink the unsweetened. It really doesn't have a strong coconut flavor like you would expect so I think it would work in many things. I thought the carageean bothered me when I was drinking soy and almond milks, but it hasn't bothered me when I've had this coconut milk. My recent allergy test was positive for almond and soy so maybe it was those and not the carageean. I don't know how long I've had these two allergies.

I was looking at the Pure Silk Almond milk today and it says Lactose Free and soy free but not gluten free. I did contact them by phone and was told that as per the FDA guidelines they weren't required to put it on the label but that it is gluten free.

I don't know why they wouldn't put Gluten free! I told them they should for easier identification.

Almond Breeze is my favorite. Gluten, dairy, and casein free and the best flavor IMO of rice and nut milks.

I've tried the pacific and blue diamond almond milk and really don't like them after making my own. I just keep a big bag of almonds on hand and when I want it I blanch them, remove the skins and put it in the blender with filtered water. I then pour it into a jelly straining bag to drain and squeeze out the remainder of the liquid. I use 1 1/2 cup almonds to 4 cups water. I have not tried the silk yet.

Silk doesn't say gluten free because they do not perform the tests on it to ensure that it's safe. But, they do not process wheat in their facility, so they consider it to be gluten free.

I drink Silk Almond (unsweetened) milk everyday. I LOVE it! All of Silks products are gluten free. I called the company last year and I never had any problems with it. And I'm very sensitive.

Enjoy! :)

    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue 
    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.)
