Are You Dying For Milk But Can't Have Lactose Or Soy?

Recommended Posts

So now that I am both intollerant to soy and lactose I thought I would never be able to have "milk" in my tea or cereal again. Until I found almond milk. It was great, especially if you enjoy the taste of soy milk. The brand I bought is Pacific Natural Foods, Vanilla Almond Milk. Its low fat and cholesterol free too and we all know how great almonds are for you. So if you can eat nuts but can't have soy or lactose definitely try some of this. If you have a Trader Joes nearby that's where I found mine in the same isle as soy milk and rice milk (which i thought would be safe until it said very clearly on the label: contains gluten!!!)

What about lactose free cow's milk? Or are you casein intolerant as well?

You know, I never thought about that. Like the Lactaid milk right? I should try that too. Thanks!

I'm casein intolerant and don't use much milk ... so if I buy almond milk, it generally goes bad and I end up throwing some of it away. I use Vance's Dari-free -- it's powdered, soy, gluten, casein-free! Tastes good, too. Thanks for the suggestion.

I use pacific's almond milk too. the vanilla is good for cereal. the original is better for substituting in recipes. Also, there is a rice milk (not rice dream) that does not have gluten in it. It's made by "Nature's Promise," which is an organic/natural line of foods that Stop n Shop sells. Im not sure if it's "organic" or just "natural" but it's in the special/ethnic/international foods aisle at the supermarket. Anyway, it's pretty good, too. Oh, and the lactaid has a yucky aftertaste. I used to use it years ago and then i found soy milk...hope that helps.

I find that the lactaid milk tastes different, but if you really, really want to have cereal with milk then it would do the trick. I don't often, but when I do I usually just take Lactaid Ultra with it.

I really like Stop n Shop's Nature's Promise brand. I will have to check out their rice milk and thanks for the substition tip, I will definitly have to try that. I sure that aren't the most reliable brand for organi foods but some of their stuff is pretty good. I don't know if you like tuna but the Nature's Promise canned tuna in water is really good. I have been cautious about eating canned albacore tuna because of the mercury scare. the canned tuna made by Nature's Promise is actually yellow tail tuna which is supposed to better for you in terms of the mercury levels.

I'm also soy and dairy free, and I recently discovered Whole Food's 365 Vanilla Rice Milk, and it's gluten-free and very yummy, so there's another option if you have a Whole Foods near you.
