Almond Dream Safe?

Anyone know if Almond Dream is safe? I know there are issues with Rice Dream since they use barley in the production.

I don't know! but your post made me realize it is made by the same company as rice dream! After talking to them last week, I'm not buying ANY of their products again. However I would also like to know if almond dream uses barley in the production since I was having it over rice for breakfast until last week! At the suggestion of someone else on this board, I bought Pacific rice milk, it tastes good and they DON'T use barley! I hope you get an answer about almond dream though. Maybe try calling them and asking if they use barley, or if they make it in the same facility as the rice dream!

My understanding is that, in the "Dream" line of milk substitutes, only Rice Dream is processed with barley enzymes, and that Almond Dream is safe. They also have "Hemp Dream," which is surprisingly delicious (and I can have dairy!), and it, too, is processed without the barley enzymes.

Thanks so much for letting us know. I was wondering about this also, since Rice Dream is processed with barley enzymes. I'm sure I would have a reaction. My stomach is still so sensitive. I've been on a gluten free diet for seven weeks and it's slow progress. I've now, given up dairy & was looking about different milk options.

I'll have to try the Hemp Dream, too.

Cheers!

Has anyone had a reaction to the Almond Dream? I've been drinking it for the last three day & I've noticed each day I've been getting more & more bloated. Today I had trouble eating & felt sooo full all day. And I couldn't even eat my dinner tonight. I've been eating it with my rice in the morning. I know this is the only thing I've been eating differently. I even keep a food dairy.

I called the company last week & they told me it was not processed with barley enzymes & it was completely gluten free. I have to say the women sounded a little annoyed at my questions. <_<

Maybe there is some cross contamination while making it? Or maybe I'm just so sensitive to everything since I'm still healing?

Either way it's off my menu.

Has anyone had any bad reactions to it? Thanks!

Long before I knew I had Celiac, I had removed all dairy products, which I KNEW were a problem, unless it was yogurt or hard cheese (low lactose). I tried Almond Dream and knew something was wrong. At first I thought it was the coffee. I then tried Almond BREEZE, and have never had a problem in my coffee. Now that I have a confirmed diagnosis of Celiac, I don't want to mess things up, and haven't tried the DREAM brand. I have also put Pacific Organic Almond Milk (which is hard to find where I live), and I have no problem with it either. I am like you, trying to heal. I betcha there is some kind of cross contamination thing going on with the Dream brands. Same thing with rice cakes. I have no problem with the organic Lundberg brand, but the store was out one day, and I got the Quaker rice cakes. No bueno. Even though the label lists nothing even remotely laden with gluten. Here is the thing, Quaker uses barley malt in SOME of their rice cakes. Guess what, that junk floated over to the supposedly gluten free. ARGH !!!!

I know this is years after the original post, but I definitely got a reaction to Almond Dream. They do not label it gluten free in Canada, but I had thought the ingredients looked safe. It took me about two weeks to get a reaction, which became increasingly severe after another week. I am not as sensitive as some, so for those of you who are sensitive, avoid this product!

I was originally eating amande yogurt and can't find any so I brought home almond dreams yogurt and suddenly realized that it may not be safe.  Rice Dreams milk is not safe so does that mean that all of the Dream products are not safe, including yogurt and ice cream? I bought it for my upcoming vacation and really don't want to take any chances with feeling ill.....

    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.
