If I could make a suggetion, my daughter has many allergies to fruits and veggies. We found this out just after her diagnoses as our doctor ordered allergy testing for her. Her allergies go under the birch/alder family. All her fruits/veggies must be cooked and rotated. She has celiac on the surpreme scale of sensativity. Getting allergy testing should go along with a diagnoses. She cannot eat almonds, so almond milk would make her sick. We use Natura rice milk. She can tolerate milk in small amounts. Most find out what they can tolerate by elimination. Hope you feel better.

Almond Breeze has soy in it, I believe. Natura has a rice milk with no soy, dairy, or gluten.

Almond Breeze just has a small amount of soy lecithin, which even the Food Allergy and Anaphylactic Network says is safe for most people with soy allergies. I avoid soy, but I don't worry about lecithin in such small amounts. That said, I really like Almond Breeze. It has WAY less carbs that any brand of rice milk and tastes better than most. I like to mix the unsweetened vanilla flavored with the regular vanilla flavored and it's delicious without being too sweet.

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13

No one has a problem with the carrageenan in those products?

i've heard that soy lethicin is okay for those with a soy allergy. i drink almond breeze, but don't have a soy allergy. my friend, though, is very sensitive to soy and can drink almond breeze, too.

sorry, i know this isn't too much help.

maybe a little. :)

Okay I have some Almond milk from a company called pacific somthing... says gluten-free right on it, was the only one that had such a lable. I wanted to try a rice milk, but I could not think which were gluten-free, and being how bad I am currently feeling and how hard it is to think I just grabbed the almond milk and went home. So what brands can I look for next kroger trip? I cant even think what was on the shelf now. Probably should have grabed the Kroger brand one cause at least I cougld get my wife to call them.

I prefer Almond Breeze almond milk (TJ's carries it) but Pacific's is alright too...

Corrine, My youngest son is like your daughter. I understand what you are going through. He is allergic to most fruits (except pears and pineapple & citus,) all tree nuts, soy, peanuts, dairy intolerant, has to have vegetables cooked only, and is gluten intolerant. Talk about a challenge, huh? It is harder for me to accept my kids having these problems a hundred- fold more than myself.

He uses rice milk--Lundberg Drink Rice brand. I also found some chocolate powder gfdf for hot chocolate/chocolate milk called Ah-laska organic cocoa mix. I use almond milk for myself and it is pretty good-Almond Breeze, already mentioned here. It is very good for coffee. :)

Vincent--hope you are better and find a good "milk" you like.

I understand that carageenan might not be the best stuff in the world, but right now it's a minor problem in the grand scope of my life. Most people here probably feel the same. I already can't eat gluten, dairy, eggs, and soy, avoid sugar (mostly), pork, beef, hydrogenated fats, artificial colors and flavors, preservatives, sulfites, nitrites, etc. A person can only avoid so much and still find food to eat, especially when trying to feed a family.

I'm glad that you're ok. I understand your frustration. I'm not sure what to think about the soy lethithin in the almond breeze. I think that it would be fine if we weren't allergic or intolerant to soy, but I would be careful of it if you thought that you may have an issue with soy.

Here are some links to Natur-a:

DO NATUR-A PRODUCTS CONTAIN ANY GLUTEN?

No. Neither Natur-a soy or rice beverages contain any gluten.

I get Natur-a produts at Sobey's, a local grocery store. Do you live in Canada or the US?

I live in the US outside of Philly in PA.

I'll look at the trader joes site.

probably Whole foods might have. I have never been there would you believe?

Judy--thanks for your help.

I am allergic to rice, so I get the unsweetened soy one.

Carrie - do you have the loblaws chain where you are? I got them at the Superstore, but they all have the same sales on, generally.
