Amande Yogurt Is Not Dairy Or Soy Free
0

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.")

    • sorry i did not see this until a year later.  i changed all my cat food to gluten free products.  right now i'm using a dry food made by Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost.  it has both dry food and freeze dried meat.  since my cats lick my face i had to make the switch.  i did not mean to remove your pets from your home.  they are loved ones and they can be eased into the diet if you have not already tried.  the wet food for my other cat is easier to find gluten free but it is expensive.
    • You might want to check out the Gluten Free Watchdog - just google it - and join. Very smart lady there who also has celiac disease. She's gone to the mats for us many times. She knows her stuff! 8 products are tested per month and there are many great articles and videos as well. She's the same lady who does the Gluten Free Dietician but on the Watchdog site, you get the test results of products as well as faster info. on breaking news.
    • After reading these few posts, I really think it all depends on where you live and the doctors attitude about the whole process. I think a biopsy is not always needed.  It depends on the circumstances and symptoms, etc.  Sometimes it is harder to piece together a proper diagnosis while other times it's so obvious.  Many people now do not even have GI issues, which used to be the hallmark of Celiac. This is why it is so difficult for some.  It would be nice if there was a very definitive test that was either positive or negative, with 100% accuracy!
    • Not to beat a dead horse here but I looked at the linked article you provided and it talked about exposure to animal feed in enclosed spaces, not driving or walking near wheat fields on a windy day.  Unless you are a farm hand, feeding cattle or horses with gluten containing feed in an enclosed, non-well ventilated area, it's not an issue. The Fasano diet is a short term diet for those who are slow to heal. Some people do have problems with grains and they found that putting them on a whole foods diet only, many of them went on to heal and could then consume processed gluten free food items like bread.  Lots of people do this in the beginning for faster healing. But it only works for people with Celiac Disease and you aren't even sure that is what the problem is. I posted this so anyone new to the diet reading these things will not become confused and think you cannot walk past a wheat field or a bakery. Inhaling visible wheat flour in a bakery is not a good idea for anyone with Celiac Disease and will make you sick/react and you won't be able to work in one but walking past bread or any gluten containing food is not cause for concern.
    • I react to certified gluten free breads, but it is NOT a gluten issue.  I react to Xanthan Gum.  I do just fine making my own baked goods from scratch subbing out the Xanthan Gum for guar gum.  My gluten-free hubby does well on commercially gluten-free baked goods.  It is just a food intolerance issue in my case.   Look to other ingredients.
