I’ve been a big fan of soya milk ever since it was first introduced to me around ten years ago. So much so that I can barely stomach normal dairy milk (I’m not on about the chocolate!!) nowadays. But there are some people who don’t have a choice of drinking the normal stuff or soya milk because they have food allergies and intolerance. This is where Rice Dream comes in. This is an alternative to dairy and soya milks as it’s made from rice and is naturally lactose-free. Plus it contains no artificial additives, colourings or preservatives and is 100%natural.
The scientific bit………
One of advantages of rice is that it is a hypoallergenic food, so it’s highly unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. It’s easy to digest and is soft on sensitive stomachs, without the adverse digestive effects that cow’s milk or soya can sometimes have. Oh and if you’re worried about calcium don’t be. A 200ml glass of Rice Dream + Calcium provides 30% of the daily recommended allowance, which is as much as full-fat milk.
But you don’t have to have an allergy to enjoy this stuff. It’s naturally sweet so if you are trying to cut back on calories, it’s a great replacement for milk in your tea or porridge.
