Calcium Fortified Rice Milk?
0

9 posts in this topic

I am currently not sure if i react to coconut milk but that doesn't seem to have much in the way of calcium. I'm not positive if i have a salicylic acid reaction to things so i'm steering clear of almond a while longer.....i don't want to drink rice dream..not sure if that is calcium fortified anyhow. I'm trying to make sure i get a good intake of calcium...i got all the info on foods..but i want a drink. Orange juice is out as well. Are there calcium fortified rice milks out there that super sensitives don't react to? Pacific foods apparently make their drinks on the same line as one with wheat now so they're out...i really want something safe with calcium here...help?

There are plenty of foods that offer a lot of calcium other than milk. If you aren't drinking dairy, I would look into food sources rather than counting on finding a safe rice alternative that is calcium fortified. Finding a dairy substitute that doesn't suck was enough to make me want to beat my head off a wall. Then I decided that I was just going to deal with it and drink dairy. (Not too much of an issue for me.) I included a link that has some information about calcium in foods, but do a little research one afternoon and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that there is a lot of calcium available that isn't from cows without us counting on it being from fortified sources.

:( Sorry I've already read up tons on this. Soy is out for me. I'm not intolerant that i know of but it affects my thyroid. Leafy greens to me seems like it would be practically impossible to get it all from that...nuts i haven't re-introduced yet..i want to eat almonds and drink almond milk but they are high in salicylates and I'm not rishing into that. I don't know a whole lot about salicylic acid....broccoli is one step down from almonds inn terms of how high the acid is in it..i can eat a cup of broccoli a day so i'm not sure if that means almonds won't be a problem or not? *siiiiiigh* Supplementation is definitely not a way i want to go. If I could drink a cup of almond milk a day i wouldn't worry about it.

That is rough!!! :( I'm sorry, I thought I was being helpful. I really have no other suggestions since like everything in existence is made of seaweed or sea salt. I gave up for myself. You can always make your own rice milk, which isn't fortified but is safe. Then you can get yummy chewable calcium. :D

I've never gotten sick from calcium chews. (Have never checked if they are gluten free.) Vitamins make me horridly ill and I absolutely won't take them. I couldn't even take them when I was pregnant because of how sick I got. Calcium though has just never caused issues, at least for me. Of course, we're all unique animals so who knows.

*nods* maybe there is something about calcium who knows. I know Iron is really rough on the tummy. Between calcium and Iron I really ought to get into blackstrap molasses :P

BAKING!!! What we clearly need is a good recipe for molasses cookies.

Honey, do you really need to eat 4 cookies every morning for breakfast?

Yes. That is how many it takes to get as much molasses as I need every day. Be a dear and warm up the car, we need to buy me new pants.

    • I would like to ask if anyone has eaten puffed rice from Arrowhead Mills.  My daughter, who has celiac, wants to eat it and I am looking for advice.  The only ingredient is rice, but they do not test the product so do not label it gluten free.  I called the company and they say they clean all their equipment between each product, but since they don't test it cannot label it as gluten free.  Would you allow your daughter to eat this product?
    • He might have celiac disease (or just the start of it).  He might have Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance, which is real, but there is not a test for it.  He might have other food intolerances (milk, dyes, etc.).  You have been to an allergist and he did not positive for allergies (I assume wheat was included in the panel.).  Trialing a diet is fine, even a gluten free diet, when you ruled out everything.  But you have that quirky TTG result.  I gave you the link from the MayoClinic (top notch) and their algorithm recommends further evaluation.  An allergist is not a celiac expert nor is primary care doctor.  You should get a referral to a Ped GI.  If she/he suggests a gluten-free diet, then fine.  Because if he improves then, the GI will give you a diagnosis.  By the time you see the GI, he might have ordered another round of celiac blood tests, genetic tests, or he might want to order an endoscopy.  This case is not clear and that is a bummer.   The cure is the diet.  But he will be going to school and a diagnosis will pave the way for accommodations all the way to college.  And anyone here will tell you that once you get off gluten (and that is the root cause), it is awful....horrific... to go back on it for further testing.   This is his life and yours.  You must do what is best for your family.  I wish you well and we are here to support you.  I care.  I am mom.  
    • This just published: Highlights   • Kernel-based gluten contamination in oats skews gluten analysis results. • Grinding inadequately disperses gluten to allow a single accurate analysis. • Lognormal distribution of the test results renders a single test unrepresentative.   Abstract Oats are easily contaminated with gluten-rich kernels of wheat, rye and barley. These contaminants are like gluten ‘pills’, shown here to skew gluten analysis results. Using R-Biopharm R5 ELISA, we quantified gluten in gluten-free oatmeal servings from an in-market survey. For samples with a 5–20 ppm reading on a first test, replicate analyses provided results ranging <5 ppm to >160 ppm. This suggests sample grinding may inadequately disperse gluten to allow a single accurate gluten assessment. To ascertain this, and characterize the distribution of 0.25-g gluten test results for kernel contaminated oats, twelve 50 g samples of pure oats, each spiked with a wheat kernel, showed that 0.25 g test results followed log-normal-like distributions. With this, we estimate probabilities of mis-assessment for a ‘single measure/sample’ relative to the <20 ppm regulatory threshold, and derive an equation relating the probability of mis-assessment to sample average gluten content.   The full article can be accessed at Gluten Free Watchdog if are a subscriber.
    • If I may say something right now, the suggestions, advice, and information provided to you in this forum is just that: suggestions, advice, and information.  What has been provided can be used as tools to help figure out what is going on.  Please don't go away disgruntled or too frustrated.  There have been times myself when advice and suggestions was given to me, and I was not sure what to do about all the information.  I had to think and pray on it before I could act on it because my brain was functioning enough to do something about it right away.  It was on survival mode.  Forgive me if I am wrong, but I believe this is where you are at right now.  You are not sure where to go or what to do, so your body is just doing what it can to function day in, day out.  If this assumption is correct, I GET IT!  It is not fun, neither is it easy. Don't give up.  Things will get better.  Take all of this information and go to your primary doctor to see if you both can put your heads together and figure this out.  The answer may not come right away, but be patient.  it could be everything coming at you at once that making your body go into hypersentive mode.  I don't know, because I am not in your situation.  Until you go to the doctor, do what you know to do and God will take care of the rest.  There is something that has kept me sane through this past year: It will be okay because God is in control.  He knows what is happening to you and your future is going to be.  When you have a good day, enjoy those moments.  When you have a bad day, bring back to memory those good days and see if you can do something for another person.  I have found this year that if I focus on someone else through the bad times especially things don't seem as grim. I will be praying for you.
