Trader Joe's Rice Milk

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone here use Trader Joe's rice milk successfully? Do you know whether it is made by the same company that makes Rice Dream? (Private label foods are often made by big manufacturers and just re-packaged under other names).

The reason I ask is that there was a thread on this message board about Rice Dream not really being gluten-free, even though its new label says it is.

If Trader Joe's brand is no good, which brand is truly gluten-free?

Thank you.

Do you know how easy this is to make yourself?

It won't have all the added nutrition.....

Coconut?

I'm not sure about whether it's made by the same people, but I posted on the other thread that I made my own the other night. It was surprisingly easy - Blended 1 c cooked rice, 4 c water, 1 tbs vanilla and about 1.5 tbs honey. I did put it through a nut milk bag after but if you have a good blender you may not have to do that extra step. My super picky son loved it. Since I'm pretty sure he had a reaction to Rice Dream after having it several days in a row, I don't think I'm going to buy it again b/c making it myself was so easy (and cheap!).

I believe Whole Foods rice milk is safe to drink. Rice Dream in the past used barley in the process...a small amount, I'm sure, but enough to make me sick when drinking it on a regular basis. Companies are allowed to have a small amount of gluten in their product, without having to declare it on the label. I switched to coconut milk, and Vance's Dari free (I'm lactose intolerant) and have had no problem. I always thought when making your own rice milk, you ground raw rice to a powder...so I never made it myself. Thanks to the recipe posted here using cooked rice, I can't wait to give it a try.

I received just now e-mal from Trader Joe's company about rice milk. Here it is:

Simona,

Thank you for your email. We cannot provide the exact testing method used for our Gluten Free statement. However, any product with this statement has been tested and meets or exceeds CODEX standards. Our products labeled as Gluten Free rarely exceed 10ppm.

Sincerely,

Amy

I have been using Trader Joe's rice milk for over 2 years. I think is safe because I never had any bloating after I drank it, or cooked form it.
