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.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
