Rice Milk .002% Gluten From Barley

Recommended Posts

Hello

My 1 1/2 year old son has just been diagnosed with gluten intolerance. We are trying to come to terms with what this really means. We knew he had allergies and were in the middle of an exclusion diet when he tested positive for gluten. He is also dairy intolerant, allergic to chick peas, split peas, green peas and lentils.

Can he have rice milk? It states on the container that it has .002% gluten from barley. Any advice?

Thanks

Barb

No, he can not have that brand rice milk. I am sure someone will post safe brands of Rice Milk and other dairy free alternatives.

I wouldnt give it to him. I struggled for a long time to find a "milk" I actually like. Mostly I make my own almond or hazelnut milk. But I do buy this brand. We all like it and it is good to cook/bake with :

He can't have that brand of rice milk. He can have Pacific rice milk, Whole Foods 365 brand rice milk....there are a few others as well. You can also just go entirely without milk substitutes if your son doesn't really like them.

Oh - and I second Shay's hemp milk suggestion. That brand is quite good and offers some nutrition you won't find in many of the "milks" out there. :)

I use the plain hemp milk to make white "cream" sauces and it is yummy. :)

Only some brands Beth. You have to read labels and sometimes call manufacturers.

I third it - and it's cheaper even at Whole Foods than it is on the website that Shay gave. (I think I pay $3.99 a box or something like that.) The vanilla makes a FABULOUS latte!

I buy it at Whole Foods too. I just linked to the site so she could "see" it.

It does! I especially love chai lattes made w/ the vanilla flavor. YUM! It's great for baking too, and for smoothies, and for cereal. It's pretty much just awesome in every way! :lol: (I really am not a hemp milk sales person, I promise LOL).

I think either one would be fine Beth. I always just buy the original. If you want it vanilla. Add a tsp of vanilla extract to it. :)

I buy their milk too. It's really good, but it has a bit of a "nutty" taste, but it's so creamy and I love it.

Yes, I'd advise against feeding your son that rice milk (probably Rice Dream). Instead, I'd feed him nut or soy milk made by Pacific Organic Foods. But please be further advised that none of these is a baby formula. - P.J.

Giving soy to little boys (or anybody for that matter) is a bad idea, it will affect his sexual maturation due to the phytoestrogens in soy. Stick with rice, almond or hemp milk instead.

Okay so what is everyone's opinion on Goats Milk instead of cow's milk? I know there's the lactose intolerant crowd and the caisen sensitive crowd and supposedly goat's milk is okay for caisen sensitive? I haven't looked into this yet, it's just what DH was telling me because he thinks he is caisen sensitive.
