Does anyone know of a safe rice milk for pa/tna? We tried the Rice Dream but they also make a Almond one on the same line here and that won't work for us? Is there another?

Thanks!

You could try Harmony Farms rice milk. We used it and were pleased, but the supply is iffy and we had trouble getting it even with special ordering it it often would just not be sent. We switched to Rice Dream and have not had a problem, not perfect but the safest rice milk in the world does us no good if we can't get it.

We use Rice Dream, but have never seen any Almond milk from them. Toomanynuts, where did you see or hear about that?
Although, Rice Dream now has another concern for me. Did you see this new item?

Is it Minute Maid that has this and the source of phytosterols is from the peanut plant?

It bothers me that, as Rice Dream does not have to list the source for the phytosterols and it can come from any fruit or vegetable plant (such as corn or soy)!

I saw it a while ago at Trader Joes. Let me check again and let you know. We haven't used it for so long that I just haven't checked again. I look this week and post what I find.

I saw that new plant sterol additive too, but I think I'm still comfortable with it. I believe the sterols are relatively protein free, and to still be able to call their product soy free I think they would still have to do some pretty stringent cleaning like they do now. My comfort level with soy is if it's only a protein free derivative and they wash lines I try it, Vegetable oils are everywhere so it is as good as it gets IMO. I have never seen almond milk from them. The bottom line is we have to use something, unless I notice a problem we'll keep using it. And if I do notice I problem I don't know what alternatives there are except that I think their dairy "thing" is improving and we may just try milk.

Acidophilus is a general name for a group of probiotics, often added to milk or sold as a capsule, which contains one or more of the following bacteria which aid in digestion: -
got this info from Wikipedia. I think it's a good bacteria which they add to yogurt.

Sorry I don't know about rice milk. Does Enjoy Life Foods offer that maybe? You might want to check the local health food store. Whole Foods Market carries allergen-free foods.

Be careful about believing everything you read. While there have been some studies linking soy and breast cancer-I would do research before taking it out of your diet entirely. Too much of anything is not good-but soy can have some benefits depending on your diet.
That being said-I can't give you a name of a rice milk that is "known" free of allergens, you'll probably want to call to check on manufacturing practices..
Rice Dream makes Almond Dream but I don't know if it's a shared facility.

You can also ck out the godairyfree blog

And my site www.bestallergysites.com has other sites and blog listings that deal with dairy allergies.
Hope that helps!

In Canada, I use Natur-A rice milk (although haven't been using any in the last 6months)... I called them once and they were made in a nut-free faiclity. Rice Dream makes me nervous for some reason, so I don't go near it...
