Need gluten-free Rice/Almond Milk

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Anyone know which brands of Rice Milk and Almond milk are safe? I have been using the Trader Joe's Rice milk but am not sure if its safe...I assume so since the label says Gluten Free and the equipment it is made on also processes fish and nuts, but again not sure

I love, love, love the new almond milk by Silk. t's right next to the soy milk in the refrigerator section. It is the best one I've had so far and I've also regularly used Almond Dream and Blue Diamond, both are gluten-free.

Doesnt Almond dream have trace amounts of gluten?

I know the Rice Dream does but don't know about the Almond. Pacific makes a for sure safe Almond milk.

I do great on Almond Breeze by Blue Diamond. Use the unsweetened Vanilla on my gluten-free oats in the morning, and use if for almost everything else, as well. No issues here.

I use Trader Joe's Rice Milk (vanilla flavor) & have had no problem with it.

All of Trader Joe's products say they're made on lines shared with wheat, soy, etc; I think they're just being thorough, & have not had any problems with their products.

I like the Turtle Mountain coconut milk. http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/coconut_milk_beverage.html I find it more neutral tasting than the other alternative "milks". I drink the unsweetened. It really doesn't have a strong coconut flavor like you would expect so I think it would work in many things. I thought the carageean bothered me when I was drinking soy and almond milks, but it hasn't bothered me when I've had this coconut milk. My recent allergy test was positive for almond and soy so maybe it was those and not the carageean. I don't know how long I've had these two allergies.

I was looking at the Pure Silk Almond milk today and it says Lactose Free and soy free but not gluten free. I did contact them by phone and was told that as per the FDA guidelines they weren't required to put it on the label but that it is gluten free.

I don't know why they wouldn't put Gluten free! I told them they should for easier identification.

I've tried the pacific and blue diamond almond milk and really don't like them after making my own. I just keep a big bag of almonds on hand and when I want it I blanch them, remove the skins and put it in the blender with filtered water. I then pour it into a jelly straining bag to drain and squeeze out the remainder of the liquid. I use 1 1/2 cup almonds to 4 cups water. I have not tried the silk yet.

Silk doesn't say gluten free because they do not perform the tests on it to ensure that it's safe. But, they do not process wheat in their facility, so they consider it to be gluten free.

I drink Silk Almond (unsweetened) milk everyday. I LOVE it! All of Silks products are gluten free. I called the company last year and I never had any problems with it. And I'm very sensitive.

Enjoy! :)

    • I had to elminate, carbs, and sugars also due to UC, but I haveen cooking for diabetics for years in my bakery. I do keto based breads, grain free baked goods, nut butters, etc. I have a few grain free low carb recipes in the cooking section like Keto low carb dinner rolls, flat bread, crackers, etc. My bakery also sales keto loaf breads that are a huge hit with my customers. Look at ketogenic/paleo diets. stews, meats, leafy greens creamy soups with nut milks etc. Crock pot and batch meals will be your new friend I imagine.
    • First, let me make this clear.  Your diet may have contributed to diabetes a bit, but the reality is you are either genetically predisposed or not.  That covers both Type 1 (TD1 — autoimmune) and Type 2 (TD2 — insulin resistance).   Has your doctor diagnosed you with TD1 or TD2?  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  It can be determined by measuring antibodies (e.g. GAD).  Like celiac disease, there are several antibody tests for TD1.  It can affect any age.   The body destroys beta cells that help produce insulin.  Insulin resistance (TD2)  is common as we age or eat a poor diet of simple carbohydrates (which is just about everyone in the US!) if you are predisposed.    It runs in families.  It can be treated by diet and if needed, medications and/or insulin.   I recall the same dismay.   I have TD2.  I have made dietary adjustments and have been able to ward off medications that could affect my gut.  You really can lose that sweet tooth!   Here is a link to Blood Sugar 101.  The author is NOT a doctor, but is good at investigating research.  It is a highly regarded website.  She sells a small book, but it contains exactly the same information.  I bought one for my Uncle who is not on the internet (imagine that!).  Learn about “eating to your meter”.  What affects one diabetic may not affect another in terms of elevating blood sugar.  Managing your blood sugar will help prevent all those diabetic complications.  Jenny’s Site also references some very well-respective books written my medical doctors who live with diabetes.  It is a good place to start.  Like this site, it helps me stick to my gluten-free and Lowere carb diet (you need to determine what works for you personally and I can not stress that enough). got to go......    
    •   Had to mention........this made me laugh out loud and how true it is! 
    • You do realize I am starting to drool all over my keyboard?    Your second sentence said it all.  It's been 12 years for me gluten-free so gluten free chewy is fine by me!
    • Bfree brand is in the US now and they are stocked at my local grocery store.  I have not seen the wraps yet but I am going to request that they stock them.  They have these dinner rolls that are actually a gluten-free sourdough roll and they are delicious!  Read the link and see what they use for sourdough starter......excellent! The rolls have chew to the crust and are soft and fluffy on the inside. I see they now make the brown, seeded rolls, which I like better than the white so the hunt is on!    Thanks for the advice.....I really miss burritos. One of the few times I have trouble with the Celiac thing is when I am in London and I can smell all that delicious street food being prepared.  It's downright torture.  As for the panettone.........they are really good.  I have never become ill from anything I have bought from Italy....they really know their gluten free stuff! https://us.bfreefoods.com/product/soft-white-rolls/
