Has Anyone Out There Had Issues With Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk Or Any Applegate Farms Products?

Recommended Posts

I purchased the grassfed beef hotdogs and I think I'm beginning to feel symptoms flaring up. Has anyone had any issues with their products? I also purchased Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk -- so that is a possibility as well.

I'm not sure what the grass feed hot dogs are, or what brand to identify them.  And I don't do Silk, so...I guess I'm not too helpful, but attentive. :)

The applegate hotdogs are gluten free.

 

Silk. Whitewave Foods, the company that revolutionized the soy milk industry, also makes almond milk and coconut milk in refrigerated cartons and shelf-stable unrefrigerated boxes. Flavors include original, vanilla, dark chocolate and unsweetened. Silk nut milk products contain no gluten ingredients. However, Silk does not test for gluten cross-contamination in its products, although it does state that "we do not make our products using any wheat, wheat gluten, rye, oat, barley or malt ingredients. Our facilities do not handle or receive these ingredients in their operations so we would not expect the presence of them in our products." The bottom line: Use caution when considering Silk nut milk products.

Those sound very safe. They use no gluten in any of their production & packaging facilities. They don't test and add that cost on to the product.

I agree. No worries there.

Testing, and passing that cost on to the consumer would be positively moronic, when they say flat out that they handle absolutely no gluten containing ingredients. What they are saying is that they are making a product that is naturally gluten free, and therefore testing would be a complete and utter waste of everyone's money. No caution needed.

Amen, Sister!

I would like to point out that many companies, under just a " no gluten ingredients but maybe shared machinery" would have said a product is gluten-free. Silk could legally call their product gluten free.

It depends on your level of sensitivity.  I found that I needed to keep track of what I ate, and stop eating it if it bothered me.  Just because someone else was able to eat it did not mean that I was able to eat it.

 

That was a painful lesson to learn.  It isn't true for everyone, but if it is true for you, you need to be informed.

 

I did have problems with Silk products, but I am in the "super sensitive" category..

I drink a lot of Silk Almond milk. I love the Chocolate. I drink some of their milk pretty nearly everyday since being diagnosed 3 years ago this coming November. I have tried Coconut milk and another brand of Almond milk but I love Silk Almond the best. I'm pretty certain they are safe.

That's awful I'm so sorry!!! When in doubt I stay away from stuff so I agree with you the poster might need to stay clear of this product. I've not had any problems myself.

We have had problems with Silk almondmilk.  It took me a couple days to figure out where the problem was coming from, but we finally figured it had to be the milk.  We usually use Almond Breeze, but we got Silk because it was on sale and my son (three years old) was SO sick all of a sudden.  He is very sensitive, so that may be it.   I know we have had it in the past, though, with no problems.  Maybe a batch got contaminated somehow?  I don't know, but I do know that I hate seeing him crying and writhing with stomach pain!  Poor guy!  As for applegate farms, we have never had an issue.  We have had the turkey dogs and turkey bacon.
