Amande Yogurt Is Not Dairy Or Soy Free

6 posts in this topic

amande yogurt advertises in bold on both the lid and the side of their yogurt of their CLAIM to be dairy and soy free. Look closely under the nutrition facts in small blurred print...this product is produced on equipment that processes dairy and soy products! I didn't see the poorly located and printed warning. After one sampling, I can tell you that it is NOT dairy and soy free. I am Celiac and react immediately to both dairy and soy. I am also on a strict diet at home, and have been for a year and a half...I don't eat out! Avoid this product if you have issues with either of these two foods. It will contaminate you!

I am super sensitive to dairy and soy (both dx'd by ELISA tests). I've eaten Amande yogurts for the past 2 years. I have NEVER reacted to any flavor of Amande yogurt. I'm just glad they made a yogurt that's free of my 7 dx'd allergies.

I flipping hate it when they do that. I try to check every label all over, every time but once in a while I miss something.

I am glad to hear you haven't in two years, I guess I was unlucky and got a bad batch. It does seem very inappropriate for a company to advertise being free of things like dairy and soy, and then turn around and process them on the same equipment as those that they claim to be free of...usually companies list contaminants under the ingredients, this one did not. I hope they change their processes. I liked the price compared to the So Delicious brand and it tasted great going down. My daughter and I split the raspberry and we both reacted, we are both Celiac and are both tested through Enterolab. Good luck with eating it, I would imagine your luck will play out some day.

Have you tested for other food allergies, esp. with blood tests? My husband is actually allergic to blueberries and grapes (IgG mediated delayed reaction allergies). You could be allergic to raspberries or another ingredient in Amande yogurts. I also tested for gluten intolerance (and soy) with Enterolab, but was dx'd as well by ELISA (blood) test for allergiesto dairy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. I'm really careful about avoiding my dx'd allergeens. So I doubt my experience with Amande yogurt was 'luck'.

You know, I made gluten free stuff in my kitchen all the time, because I have to eat gluten free. Most all of our meals are gluten free, most every ingredient in the house is gluten free, and most all of our kitchenware is dedicated to gluten-free ingredients only. But my husband gets to have his granola bars stored in his kitchen cupboard, and a small corner away from everything else where he can put hamburger buns or bread.

I have no qualms saying that the food I offer to friends and family is gluten free. I don't even add on. "Oh, yes, these are totally gluten free. But my husband stores granola bars in our kitchen."

But it's made in a shared facility. Just like the yogurt is. Just like many, many, many foods are. And like most households are.

It's not fair to say that just because it's made in a shared facility it has something in it.

I believe you that you can't tolerate their yogurt - whether it's from the almonds, the fruit juice, rice bran, locust bean gum, pectin, tapioca, or anything else in there. Or that there is cross contamination. (I happen to have a container of the blueberry amande yogurt in my fridge.) But that doesn't prove there is dairy in it. (That said, this board IS a great place to post the "I reacted to this. Be careful; there may be cross contamination." It's just not fair to say "This must contain this in it, because I felt bad after eating it.")
