I have been having so problems lately that felt to me like I had been ingesting some gluten. For the life of me though I could not figure out where or how. I have not been eating out so I knew that I wasn't poisoning myself. Then it dawned on me that I was only having these problems after having coffee with Rice Dream Rice Milk in it. I then began to wonder why my favorite dairy free and I thought gluten free beverage was giving me problems. Well it turns out that although it is not labeled as such that it does indeed have gluten in it. The gluten is from the unlabeled barley enzyme they use in the process of manufacturing the rice milk. The company takes the stance that it is gluten free however.
"Is RICE DREAM Beverage a gluten free product?
Yes. Although RICE DREAM Beverage is processed using a barley enzyme, the barley enzyme is discarded after use. The final beverage might contain a minute residual amount (less than .002%) of barley protein."
However, it is enough gluten to make me sick. I bet that it is also enough gluten to make other people sick too. I want as many people as possible to know that this is NOT a gluten free food.
