My 13 month old has recently been diagnosed with severe allergies to milk, eggs, tree nuts and peanuts. She is currently on Nutramigen formula and I am looking for a milk to switch her to. Our pediatric allergist recommended soy milk that is not made in a facility not produced with other allergens. I have contacted companies and cannot find a product. Does anyone know of one?
I am considering Organic Dream Soy Milk, Good Karma FlaxMilk, and So Delicious Coconut Milk... But all of these companies claim safety cross contamination protocols, but are still made in a facility with allergens. Help!
IPIIT is the name
Great! What is the app?
With allergies like these. I have learned look for the "V" on things. Vegan. Also an app I can share with you that you scan barcodes on items in the store and select your allergies and it will tell you if your child can have or not. It's saved us hours reading labels in the grocery store
My daughter has all the same allergies and I want to share some products that are 100% vegan to try. I have a two year old.
Mary's gone crackers brand: makes vegan cookies and crackers. Good snacks
Amy's brand: has vegan pizza. So dairy free it reads at the top
Enjoi life : tons of vegan items.
Glad to hear that the rice milk is working for you!
I asked the same question about "facility" the other day. Everything has this disclaimer!!! The rice milk we bought also contains it but we have not had any bad reaction.
My paed suggested rice milk. It's working for us. My daughter has same allergies including soy. We have to take a B-Co multivitamin as well.
We have found 8th Continent Soy Milk and it's made in a facility free of the top 8 Allergens! So excited to find this! Yes, I'm aware of "made in facility" labeling. I've contacted many companies. I wish there was a law requiring it to be on a package. It would make our lives much easier!
When a food product says "made in a facility with ____". Just so you know that its not the law to disclose that information on any package. That means the company wanted to share that information with you, and the packages that do not state that information just did not want to included it on their package. You need to be the best judge on what you want to buy. Just know they are all contaminated in some shape way or form from the facility UNLESS you bought it from a company that does not use certain allergens in their facility.
I would go with what the doctor suggested or if you wanted to try rice milk that would be another option.
