I can't have dairy and needed some milk yesterday so I decided to try Rice Dream because I'd heard great things about it. I used the shelf stable one because it was the only kind available to me and I ended up feeling horribly sick not long after having it. I noticed later that it had safflower/sunflower oil in it which are both avoids for me...is it possible for me to have gotten sick so fast from the milk?

If very sesitive - yes
but it could have been a bug
I have often had Rice dream if I made something for my daughter and never had any bad effect from it.

Why can´t you do dairy ?

I would use homemade almond milk if I wanted to subsitute real milk.
Ricemilk IMO is just carb-juice

malt of some sort is used in the manufacturing process. make your own.

sprouting any grain renders it sweet.....
home made manna tastes like honey.

with malt, made of barley, it s the same thing.....so I believe you can make
malt out of any compliant grain actually, by sprouting, dehydrating, grinding into a fine powder and adding it to either baked goods or smoothies or whatever suits your fancy. :)

faux milk in this case

the safflower/sunflower dose it to me too. i tried the terro brand terro chips (I usuly get them from nutsonline) and i ate a couple of hand fulls and within twenty minutes i wanted to throw up. lesson learned stick to my "nuts".
i have tried every sub for milk out there and can only say it is a good thing i don't actuly drink milk. i hate them all. too watery, no taste, the wrong kind of taste, fortunatly dairy only makes extra mucus for me and i don't use it often so i will get goat milk from a local milker of goats and make alot of spelt bread for my freezer with most of the gallon.  ;D

Ok thanks for the information everyone. I have allergies to dairy so that's why I was using rice milk. I only use milk when I need it for baking which is rarely since I have celiac disease I pretty much never bake. That was exactly how I felt battle dwarf, I was nauseous pretty quickly so I knew it wasn't a gluten contamination because that takes quite awhile. I think I'll try almond milk next time.

my mom is trying to find the dimond brand almond milk. it is saposed to be good but i will have to check the store in the bigger city when i go monday. they don't have it locally...the place that sells certafied angus is catering to some aspects of gluton avoidance, i wonder if he would get the dimond bran if asked. he is locally owned and seems to be easier to work with than wally's world.

Oops!!  I somehow missed the oils in the Rice Dream that I'd recently bought!  That may be one of the reasons why my energy has been going down, although I only used it to make rice pancakes.

I noticed the energy drain to a greater degree when I had bought the Terra Chips in the second month of my BTD, in a desperate fling for crunchy snacks!!

I think I remember the Diamond brand to have carageenan in it.

What about Almond Dream...I think that one is free of a lot of additives

ya, terra, loaded with safflower/sunflower, can't handle them at all. they litteraly make me sick to my stomach. i get my chips online. they are made in canola oil but they are a treat i don't eat all the time AND THEY DON'T MAKE ME SICK TO EAT THEM. i have to whacht for those two oils like mad though i think it is mainly the safflower thats makes me want to hurl becuse when i used to eat potato chips i loved the lays brand in all sunflower and they did not bother me.

Ahhhhhh it was definitely the milk!!! I'm up late studying for finals and decided to test my milk theory to see if it really was the safflower/sunflower/canola oils that made me sick. Well... within 15 minutes I was nauseous and a had horrible stomachache and wanted to curl up and die. Definitely going to be avoiding these at ALL costs now!

Carrageenan might also be the cause and other additives
Posted by: amazon, Sunday, May 2, 2010, 7:22am; Reply: 14
Carrageenan isn't listed as an ingredient...wouldn't it have to be listed if it was in it?

I should think so

It is easy to make you own almond milk
I soak almonds in water overnight
drain them at put them in a blender with freshwater
-  a little seasalt andmaybe a date/honey ( depends I don´t like my milk that sweet- but I know americans are used to the sweetness  :K))
blend untill smooth
and sive true a fine coloth or metal sieve.

Keep it it the  fridge max 2-3 days.

You can use the almond pulp in cakes etc.
Depending on how much water you add you get more or less fatty milk.

You could also make sesame seed milk, that would give you added calcium.

Safflower oil is an avoid for me as well and I got a terrible rash from it. More or less confirmed the fact that I am a nonnie.

You can also use water or juice as the liquid in baking.
