I am wondering that as well.

I am pretty sure that it will probably be gluten-free but it might cause problems for those with soy problems as silk is known for its soy milk and it might be produced on the same lines.

It would be nice to have another brand available rather than just Blue Diamond.

I wonder if this one will have carageenan in it as well.

I made the chocolate pudding from their recipe page and it was really really good! I liked the taste of it but I didn't like the consistency, just too thick for me.

Here is the link to their recipe page. Like I said before I didn't care for the consistency of the almond milk for drinking or cereal (I prefer to make my own for this), but it was great for baking and cooking.

Try adding more almond milk to it and it will be thinner.

I guess this does sound confusing. I liked the pudding made with it. What I didn't like was to drink the silk almond milk or like it on cereal because of its thickness. It was great for the pudding.

I like the thickness for drinking and especially on cereal!

I had been using Vanilla flavored Silk brand soy milk with my gluten-free granola in the morning (email me if anyone wants the recipe). The cinnamon does a great job of masking the taste of the soy milk, which I cannot get used to. I tried the Silk brand vanilla flavored Almond milk and found that I don't merely tolerate the taste, I actually LIKE it.

Would love to go back to real milk, but one of my celiac experts thinks that I need to finish healing before I try milk again. I suspect, however that my casein problem is going to stay with me.

    • I thought I would update you all.  I started to eat gluten shortly after this post.  I was miserable by the time I had my EGD.  The doctor gave a diagnosis after the EGD was completed, duodenitis, gastritis and hiatal hernia.  I had abnormal mucosa of the whole stomach and severe inflammation.  The biopsy results came back today, they stated early stages celiac disease.  I wonder what it would've shown if I wasn't on a gluten free diet for two years?  My doctor said he still wants me to come in for a talk, he doesn't really know if he should call it celiac disease since it's early stages....  WTH!  I've really got to find a doctor that specializes in Celiac Disease...    
    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
