Need Help Finding A gluten-free Milk Substitute
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi,

Hoping you guys can help me out here!

So this morning I discovered Rice Dream is processed with barley, leaving it at 20ppm! I need another milk alternative and for some reason the Silk Almond milk gives me the big D. It might be that Silk is a major mfr of soy products and I've discovered soy gives me D too.

So help! I live in the western part of the US.

I'd like to try a rice or almond product. I seem to tolerate "So Delicious" coconut milk but it's 40 miles away at the Whole Foods store. It has to be stored in the 'fridge so that's only going to be a once a month purchase. I need a suggestion or two or three to try for daily use.

Thx guys

I know that many larger grocery stores here in the east have Pacific Foods Almond and Rice Milks. I've used them and they're very good.

Since the cartons are shelf stable until opened, you could also stock up on them when you do go to Whole Foods.

If you are just wanting something to use in coffee or tea, you can get canned coconut milk. The stuff is so intense, one can lasts me about a week. I pour it into another ceramic or glass container and store it in the refrigerator after I open it, spooning it out as needed. You can also blend a little of it into your cup with other gluten-free milk substitutes to give your cup of coffee or tea a bit more "creaminess."

Some of the more interesting things you can do with canned coconut milk is to cook with it, such as for pumpkin pudding or pie for holiday meals, or for Thai style soups mixed into chicken broth with some lime juice (it won't curdle), or for some curry sauces.

When I can't get out to Whole Foods for the SoDelicious stuff, I get almond milk at Safeway. (I happen to use Blue Diamond Almond Breeze. Yummy stuff.)

Yep....Rice Dream bothers me also....I sometimes buy So Delicious shelf stable Coconut Milk, but because I have so many food allergies, I find Vance's DariFree to be more economical for me in the long run. I order Vance's online, and it lasts me for a long, long time. I especially like to have hot cocoa during the winter months. Better Than Milk rice beverage mix also works for me......it has a slight coconut flavor to it. Be sure to read the ingredients on these products if you order online....I also have serious soy problems, and one of these products has some soy in it....forgot which one at the moment.

    • I eat them with no issues and know several other Celiacs that eat them with no issue.
    • I am sorry that you are sick! i think you need to really adhere to a gluten free diet that consists of ONLY whole foods (no processed gluten-free foods) and do not go out to eat, until you start to see improvement.  Each tiny gluten exposure can set you back.  It sounds like you really became even more ill after the gluten challenge.   I was just anemic when diagnosed.  I waited seven weeks for my endoscopy due to work issues, so i took the time to consume lots of gluten.  Like a loaf of sourdough per day not to mention all the cakes, cookies that I loved.  (Okay, I just ate a few out of each package......)  by the end of seven weeks, I knew I had celiac disease.  I had a bloated stomach visible under my left rib cage, pinching when I bent over, indigestion, etc.  Not to mention some weird Fibro pain my my shoulders, tingly legs, etc.   Most resolved, but it took about two years. If you  ask for thyroid panel, be sure it includes testing for thyroid antibodies.   
    • My daughter, who is almost 21 and has celiac disease, was diagnosed with Epilepsy a year ago. Hindsight being 20/20, we realized she had been having seizure since she was a teenager but the random passing out and feelings of being 'out of it' were attributed to dehydration or poor nutrition and sleep habits during numerous trips to the emergency room. In our reading about Epilepsy, I have found some mention of celiac and gluten issue connections and even where a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet provided a lot of improve the with frequency and severity of seizures.  I would be interested to know if anyone else shares this experience.
    • I have also reacted to various Planters products, believing them to be safe because gluten is not listed in the allergens but have had almost identical reactions to yours.  It did not occur to me that I might be getting zapped from them until just recently when I ate some of their Salt and Vinegar almonds and became really ill and then recognized that I had reacted to them before. I have notice in the past few months that the 'Hermans' brand nuts, which have never mentioned wheat in their allergens now carries the 'processed in a plant that processes wheat' disclaimer.  It makes me wonder if all nuts are processed in the same manner and if all nuts and nut products should be considered unsafe? I know that I will not trust the Planters brand any longer regardless of whether wheat is listed or not.
    • I've heard some people say that they're gluten free, and some say they're not.. I had a container of planter's cashews that I ate a few days ago and I haven't been feeling that great since then. I thought I was fine, but yesterday I woke up with a headache and was feeling really gassy all day. Then since last night, every once in a while I'll have some stomach cramps. They last for a few minutes and then go away.. that has happened 3 or 4 times since last night. It seems weird that I wouldn't have a reaction right away though.. or at least within a few hours of eating them. I ate some on thursday and on friday, and I didn't really start to feel sick until saturday. It's been a while since I last got glutened though, so maybe my reaction has changed? Or maybe I'm being paranoid and I just ate too many cashews haha. But that's the only thing I've eaten in the past like 2 weeks that was different. Has anyone else had a problem with planter's nuts?
