i got some 'silk' stuff from walmart in a half gallon carton.

it's soy milk that's been enriched with calcium and vitamins.

is that the right stuff?

I just picked up a carton of silk last week! Only cause it was on sale. It tastes ok. I'm not too sure about the gas. It's never given me any. See for yourself! wink.gif

I'm gonna pick up a soybean maker one of these days so that I can press my own.

soy milk shouldn't give you gas. it's the lactose in regular milk that some people are intolerant of and that creates gas. i think soy milk was actually made for people who couldn't drink regular milk.

it's not uncommon for someone to become lactose intolerant as they get older. i read somewhere that we've evolved to not have a need for milk when we're adults. we tell people to drink milk their whole life for the calcium but really the best milk we ever got was breastmilk which has a number of nutrients and natural antibodies that we could never re-create.

I have tried a couple of non dairy milks and have not liked the taste of them, any recomendations? I have already tried Silk and the rice one, can't remember the name of it.

If any of you would be so bold, you can also go to Asian supermarkets and pick up their brand of soy milk. You can also get the option with sugar or without. Plus it's much cheaper.

you can try almond milk. but nothing will ever taste like cow's milk. you'll get used to the taste.

oh yeah, jc, soy milk is much cheaper at an asian store. except they really DO like the taste of the soy vs. the one's you find in the "regular" grocery store which try to make it closer to cow's milk. mmm...it's good either way!

cow's milk has hormones in it. they feed dairy cows hormones to produce more milk than they would normally produce. hormones are passed into the milk and cannot be filtered out. when humans drink this milk, the hormones act on OUR bodies and for some it could be the root cause of acne. you could try organic milk but it's pretty expensive. and since some people are lactose intolerant, soy, almond, or rice milk are better alternatives.

even so, those poor cows are milked every day until their milk production slows (even with hormones) and then they're ground up for hamburger meat. if you read "Fast Food Nation" it's a pretty realistic view of exactly where our food comes from. it's a great book =)
