Soy Milk For Super Sensitives?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know soy milk has a bit of a reputation for cc. Have any supersensitives had any luck with a particular brand? Other Pacific milks seem to test ok according to what I have seen on another site, but I didn't see anything about the soy milk. I also just noticed on another post that Pacific has a new gluteny product that they produce on the same line. They have always said they clean well between runs, but the new product scares me. Been trying to get back on dairy with mixed results. Starting to conclude that I can tolerate only small amounts of low lactose dairy such as cheddar. I'd like to find a milk substitute that is fortified. I prefer soy, but would settle for rice milk. I've tried many, but am now off processed foods due to continued problems and am feeling much better. Just wondering about backtracking and getting on a safe milk substitute. Lactaid Milk bothers my gut. I seem to have trouble with the added enzyme. I really noticed that when I tried the pills. Also noticed the same thing when I tried other enzyme supplements. No offense to others, but I would really like to hear back only from super sensitives on this one. Thanks, Dave

I have found Pacific Natural Foods to have great customer service, and I highly recommend calling them if you can. We do not consume soy, so I have no idea how their soy milk is. Their hemp milk did not pass our testing when it was first introduced, but they work very hard to get clean foods. We have been very happy overall with the information and follow up from them as we have used their milks over the past few years. And they may have been able to improve on their hemp product since we tried it. We have continued with consumption of hazelnut milk since the change in manufacturing, and we do not have any obvious issues . . . but that has not been the clearest biological testing either. I follow Allergic Girl (Sloane Miller), and she asked the allergic crowd that she knows if they consume the Pacific products - I got some great info from that thread too . . . and it gave me some confidence to continue with our consumption (like a nut allergic person responded that they were safely consuming non-nut milks). I have no idea where to find that info that was emailed to me . . . I don't understand all the social media things used today. Hope that helps!

Thanks Weluvgators, I might just go ahead and give it a try. I did email Pacific Natural Foods and let them know I was not thrilled about the shared lines. Any other responses out there? Is soy just taboo for supersensitives? I noticed that another recent soy topic didn't get many responses.

I think soy is often taboo even for the standard celiac - there is an inherently high risk of CC in standard growing and handling practices. Pacific Natural Foods should be able to tell you about the soy from the field to the box, so I would be hopeful that perhaps they have figured it out as well as can be expected (ask if they are using dedicated equipment for harvest and transport, or is there a cleaning process for the harvest/transport equipment - perhaps you can ask what precautions are in place to ensure strictly gluten free soy). I highly recommend calling them, as the person to person support by their customer service has been fabulous in my experience. It often takes a bit of time for her to do the research for a consumer's particular questions, but I have always been pleased with the information that they are willing to discuss with me. In all fairness though, you really have to know your exact questions in order to get the answers that you need. I have discussed milk production with them many times, yet it seems that I learn something new about their process each time I call them. sigh . . .
