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.turtlemou...k_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.
