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

When I saw this photo, I thought it truly represented my life prior to being gluten-free. It was like being rooted in place trying to survive a Category 5. Now that I am gluten-free, I feel like I just might make it :)

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.

So Delicious has shelf stable Coconut Milk http://www.turtlemou..._Bev_Plain.html
It comes in Sweetened, Unsweetened and Vanilla. You can always ask your local market to get you some even the Whole Foods should have it when you go next trip.

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.
