Rice milk

Has anyone tried rice milk? There is a really good one by called rice and easy, you can get it from your local Tesco’s. I’m lactose intolerant, and that's the best option I found which is healthier, cheap, and taste good.

Re: Rice milk

I was really surprised just how good rice milk is. Our local grocers has a pretty good house brand. If you're soy-intolerant, read the label. Some rice milks and almond milks, have soy. They're putting it in everything these days!

Re: Rice milk

The problem with Rice Milk including Rice Dream is it contain too much sugar/carbs and very little protein. It is not a good substitute for milk --- It's too sweet.
Look at the labels.

Re: Rice milk

Harry, you're right. Rice milk does have a high glycemic index. I don't use it all that often - just in the occasional bowl of gluten-free, corn-free, soy-free, no sugar cereal. Hemp milk isn't bad. It's thicker than rice milk and doesn't have the funky taste that soy milk has. It also has protein and essential fatty acids. Its ok on cereal. Never tried it plain.

Re: Rice milk

Sorry to hear that. I actually need to gain weight. Since i've been drinking it i've only put on a few pounds. I have a very fast metabolism.

Re: Rice milk

Hey

I used to drink Soya Milk - but then due to high cholesterol I switched to Rice Milk.

I chose the Rice & Easy milk drink as it is low in fat & cholesterol - added vits and minerals.

Maybe give it a try as a low-fat Rice Milk alternative!
