Trader Joe's Rice Milk

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hi there,  I eat a very clean unprocessed diet, and was this way before I was diagnosed with celiac. The most processed my foods get is just having two pieces of toast in the morning. Before I was diagnosed with celiac they had me monitoring my blood sugars, but did not seem to think it was diabetic. I will definitely talk to my doctor about vitamin deficiencies and hope he will take it more seriously!  Thank you for the prompt feedback!
    • I understand the link.   I’ve gotten sick from Frito products that are labeled gluten free.  I called and spoke with them on their processes, they “clean” the lines.  I won’t buy products that are ran on shared lines/“cleaned”.  It’s not worth it.  
    • This could be related to nutrient deficiencies such as multip B-vitamins, magnesium, primarily with some others to consider like vitamin D E and iron. But my concern with be diabetes also, it is a fact that diabetes and celiac go hand in hand often. AND if you eat gluten free processed food often you are eating a ton more starch, carbs, and sugars then you need to which could make this worse. I would really suggest seeing a doctor about this as it seems to be a really serious issue. Discoloration is a blood flow issue normally.....this could lead to complications and loss/amputation of you your extremities. Again my main concern would be diabetes, if you want to help keep track of this get a glucose monitor from walmart and check you blood glucose before and a at the 30, 60, 90, 120min mark after a meal for a week monitor the results and see about taking them to a doctor. If your seeing large spikes and drops between and after meals this could be a sign of something. (again observational data not a doctor here  but info to help). You can try supplementing B-vitamin complexes and magnesium also help but PLEASE talk to a doctor on this issue. Change to a whole foods only diet for awhile and see about cutting out processed foods, sugars, and going easy on the carbs.
    • Celiac disease is a bit like a chameleon in symptoms with over 500 known combinations (someone else said this number). It being a autoimmune disease it would not be unheard of it effecting the lymph nodes and in fact early on my first signs of a CC was tightening and swelling of the ones in my neck. I have not noticed this with my past few encounters in the past 2 years. But as I said it is a chameleon in symptoms. You will need to be eating gluten daily for about 12 weeks for the celiac blood panel which is the standard for testing with this disease. And keep eating it for 2 weeks prior to a follow endoscope and biopsy to check for intestinal damage. You can read up more in the link http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Hi there, I was recently diagnosed with Celiac after having dramatic weight loss, extreme fatigue, digestive issues, and a variety of other things. The blood test and biopsy both came back positive so I have been following a strict gluten free diet.  I have been experiencing muscle spasms, frequent face redness all over, and as of lately my toes and fingers have been turning different colours. The most concerning would be my toes as they will go purple. Each toe looks like it has a bruise on it. Is this symptomatic of celiac? I followed up with my family doctor but his only suggestion was to see a dietician, and out I went.  My antibody came back positive, and the titre was high and speckled. Is this related to the celiac? Not much has been explained to me, and I am just trying to understand further! If anyone has any advice, or comments I would be glad to read them!    Thank you
