Rice Dream And Caramel Color

Good evening everyone,

I am rather new to this website and new to Celia disease. My son was diagnosed last week and I am confused on what is good to use and what is not. I have been using rice dream but only the ones that do not state made with .02% gluten. I read on some of them that it has gluten so I am confused but my son is milk, egg and soy tolerant as well so Rice milk is our only option. Since he has all those allergies the almond milk is out because it contains soy lechitin. I feel backed against the wall. What about Westsoy Rice milk? It does not state gluten free but it does say lactose and dairy free. I did not read anything bad but am unsure what to think. What about caramel color? My sons french fries say made with canola oil and has caramel color and annatto color. Is that ok? I am sorry to ask so many questions but it is all very overwhelming. Lastly, What do you think about Prego sauce. It does not state gluten free but had no ingredients that are an issue for my son. Should I trust it? I really appreciate this website and am sending big hugs to you all. Have a great night and thanks for reading my post.

Hugs Hugs,

Rosa

Caramel color usually isn't an issue if the product is made in the US. Call/email the company if you are unsure.

I use Prego sauce....the traditional variety I know for sure is gluten-free.

It can be overwhelming at first but once you get the hang of it, it is easier.

Good Luck!

You could try hemp milk for your son. I was tree nut intolerant for a while and I love hemp milk now. Also, Trader Joe's or Whole Foods brands of rice milk are gluten free...not .2% or whatever of barley.

Hope that helps, and it will get easier. :)

Yes, I love hemp milk (the Living Harvest brand; I find Hemp Bliss nasty -- people's tastes can vary, I just mention it because, in case you try one and don't like it, well, the other one is different).

Does your son react to soy lecithin? Enterolab told me I could probably tolerate it. It is pure fat, so it doesn't contain the protein. If you look at soy allergy descriptions, you will see them say that you probably can have soy lecithin and perhaps some types of soybean oil as well. Of course, some people DO react to soy lecithin, so you have to be alert to the possibility.
