Does almond milk cause constipation?

Does almond milk cause constipation?

Not usually: I have not seen constipation as a result of almond milk. Dairy can be constipating as can apples or apple juice in some. Not drinking enough fluid definitley. Bananas, sweet potatoes in some are foods that can cause constipation. If stopping almond milk solves the problem and taking it again causes constipation then for you yes almond milk is constipating.

I'm dieting my 4yrs old with dairy products due to severe constipation, backpain. Is almond milk gluten free ok and safe to use as alternative?

I'm dieting my 4yrs old with dairy products due to severe constipation, backpain. Is almond milk gluten free ok and safe to use as alternative?

Not best choice: Not all almond milk is gluten free. Check the label. Almond milk is very low in protein and fat which growing children may need. It can be high in sugar too. The almonds need to have been soaked/dehydrated first to rid phytic acid which blocks mineral absorption and causes tummy distress. Positives: iron, riboflavin and vitamin e, extra calcium.

Sounds like milk: Sounds like milk is your problem - you may want to leave it out of your daily diet and see if the problem goes away. Add a daily calcium supplement (taken with food) daily if you need the extra calcium. If this doesn't solve the problem, make sure you are eating a healthy diet without processed foods and with plenty of fiber. Then talk to your md.

Can oatmeal, sugar, and milk cause constipation?

Can oatmeal, sugar, and milk cause constipation?

Constipation: Some foods pull water into the stool (like prunes) and some foods remove water (like cereals and rice). To prevent constipation -- if you are otherwise well -- make sure you are taking in enough fluids and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Fluids in foods, tea, coffee, and water all count, but to be healthy, limit your intake of sugary drinks and alcohol.
