Amande Yogurt Is Not Dairy Or Soy Free

6 posts in this topic

amande yogurt advertises in bold on both the lid and the side of their yogurt of their CLAIM to be dairy and soy free. Look closely under the nutrition facts in small blurred print...this product is produced on equipment that processes dairy and soy products! I didn't see the poorly located and printed warning. After one sampling, I can tell you that it is NOT dairy and soy free. I am Celiac and react immediately to both dairy and soy. I am also on a strict diet at home, and have been for a year and a half...I don't eat out! Avoid this product if you have issues with either of these two foods. It will contaminate you!

I am super sensitive to dairy and soy (both dx'd by ELISA tests). I've eaten Amande yogurts for the past 2 years. I have NEVER reacted to any flavor of Amande yogurt. I'm just glad they made a yogurt that's free of my 7 dx'd allergies.

I flipping hate it when they do that. I try to check every label all over, every time but once in a while I miss something.

I am glad to hear you haven't in two years, I guess I was unlucky and got a bad batch. It does seem very inappropriate for a company to advertise being free of things like dairy and soy, and then turn around and process them on the same equipment as those that they claim to be free of...usually companies list contaminants under the ingredients, this one did not. I hope they change their processes. I liked the price compared to the So Delicious brand and it tasted great going down. My daughter and I split the raspberry and we both reacted, we are both Celiac and are both tested through Enterolab. Good luck with eating it, I would imagine your luck will play out some day.

Have you tested for other food allergies, esp. with blood tests? My husband is actually allergic to blueberries and grapes (IgG mediated delayed reaction allergies). You could be allergic to raspberries or another ingredient in Amande yogurts. I also tested for gluten intolerance (and soy) with Enterolab, but was dx'd as well by ELISA (blood) test for allergiesto dairy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. I'm really careful about avoiding my dx'd allergeens. So I doubt my experience with Amande yogurt was 'luck'.

You know, I made gluten free stuff in my kitchen all the time, because I have to eat gluten free. Most all of our meals are gluten free, most every ingredient in the house is gluten free, and most all of our kitchenware is dedicated to gluten-free ingredients only. But my husband gets to have his granola bars stored in his kitchen cupboard, and a small corner away from everything else where he can put hamburger buns or bread.

I have no qualms saying that the food I offer to friends and family is gluten free. I don't even add on. "Oh, yes, these are totally gluten free. But my husband stores granola bars in our kitchen."

But it's made in a shared facility. Just like the yogurt is. Just like many, many, many foods are. And like most households are.

It's not fair to say that just because it's made in a shared facility it has something in it.

I believe you that you can't tolerate their yogurt - whether it's from the almonds, the fruit juice, rice bran, locust bean gum, pectin, tapioca, or anything else in there. Or that there is cross contamination. (I happen to have a container of the blueberry amande yogurt in my fridge.) But that doesn't prove there is dairy in it. (That said, this board IS a great place to post the "I reacted to this. Be careful; there may be cross contamination." It's just not fair to say "This must contain this in it, because I felt bad after eating it.")

    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
