I do like Almond Breeze but I've lost some of my desire to use it after reading about carrageenan. It comes from Irish Moss, which on it's own is not dangerous but the heating process used to extract the substance that is used in these types of beverages as a thickner makes it unsafe. Apparently, tests show that consuming carrageenan is thinked to various gastrointestinal disorders and cancer. Whether this is true...I have no idea. Either way, I will be trying to figure out more about it. Have any of you researched this at all?



I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. -Matthew 17:20

"Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favour compared with the products of nature, the living cell of the plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life."
- T. A. Edison

So is the warning about soy about American GMO soy or all soy? I live in Japan, and if I am correct, our soy is not GMO.

Sorry. Not sure if my origianl post was clear. There IS an almond breeze that has NO soy, but you have to read the labels.

I used to buy Almond Breeze milk... but I started making my own when I realized there was SOY in it. So, today, as I was looking around the health food store I saw SOME Almond Breeze tetra packs had a different label. NO SOY. So, for those who do not (or cannot) eat soy, be aware that it is in Almond Breeze milk.
It is in the ingredients list as soy lecithin.
