Hi 'holdthegluten',

WRONG rice dream never stated on the label that it contained any gluten.

.

If you follow this link and read the Caution it says not to be used for Infants because it may contain traces of Barley protien

.

Read the Caution

.

However this link just says 'Not to be used for infants' but doesn't elaborate I wonder why?

.

Read Warning at the end

.

There are other brands of Daryfree milk on the market that don't cause problems for Celiacs, Darifree a potato based milk alternative, almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk etc etc.

.

Best Regards,

David

It did uses to say it contained a certain percentage of barley malt. But apparently they didn't change the formula and now they say it's gluten-free, but it's not! It has a small PPM, but personally if they felt they needed to say it previously, I don't want to risk a reaction.

It's up to you, but yes it used to say it contained gluten. If you have a Trader Joe's near you, their brand of rice milk is gluten-free, dairy free and soy free.

Hi 'confusedks',

Apologies, I stand corrected.

I checked back to packaging from 1997 for Rice Dream in the USA

You are quite correct it did say could contain minute traces of gluten from barley.

.

On early european packaging it said barley enzyme was used in the processing!

.

Confusion over,

Most Coeliac/Celiac Agencies worldwide say it is unwise

for people with celiac disease to use Rice Dream.

I have communicated with them by phone and email--the formula has not changed, the product is still processed with barley. They can now state 'gluten-free' on the label since the new lableing laws allow this if the amount is low enough.

They used to have a warning on the label--and essentially nothing else has changed about the product since then. I tried Rice Dream early on before I knew better--I reacted then, and won't chance it now.

Thanks guys.............what a bunch of crap.........Gluten free should mean 0 amount of gluten. I had some last night and we shall see what happens.........i have both genes and i am really sensitive.

I thought the label used to include barley in the ingredients and now it does not? I was assuming that meant they did change the formula. Do we know that is wrong? My 2 yr old son is gluten free, but has been having what appear to be some reactions and I've been trying to figure out if he could have got any gluten. He has been drinking rice dream since 1 (and also had more gi probs ever since). Sometimes I think he has more problems with the enriched than the plain - could that be? He is also milk and soy allergic so I have not found any other safe rice milks - they all say they are processed on shared lines.

Hi 'snowgirl,

I think you just answereed your own question!..... He has been drinking rice dream since 1 (and also had more gi probs ever since). He is also milk and soy allergic so I have not found any other safe rice milks - they all say they are processed on shared lines..

Try 'Darifree' it's a milk alternative derived from potato and is soy free as well.

Here's a link. 'Darifree'.

Ya gotta love a government that tells companies how much poison they can hide and not declare in an item. The reason the company changed labels and can get away with it is because our wonderful FDA has determined that they can so. Do write to the FDA and Rice Dream about this. Letting them know how sick this item makes us is the only way to get this regulation and the formula for this particular item changed.

Meanwhile if you have a Wegmans they have recently come out with a good really gluten-free rice milk. Pacific brands also has one that I have used without seeming to have any ill effects.

Perhaps we should start a new thread urging members to barrage Rice Dream with phone calls and letters saying we have reacted to it and ask (innocently) is it possible that there is gluten in it? And if so, then they NEED to have a warning, no matter what the FDA says, or they will end up being liable for lawsuits because of all the reactions.

Either that, or they need to change the way they process it so that they no longer use barley enzymes.
