Not a problem: I see no reason to change a kids diet while he's on antibiotics.Some antibiotics need to be given at specific times with respect to meals, but i don't stop their milk or milk substitute because of a cough. ...Read more

My daughter had a milkshake made with almond milk that expired a week ago. smelled the milk alone and it smelled stale but not sour Cause for concern?

Probably nothing to: worry about. Since it was almond milk, not regular milk, there shouldn't be any side effects. If it tasted fine, she should be fine. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I'm allergic to milk I have asthma & causes to much phelm  is it ok to have almonds and milk derived  in the ingredients is that real milk?

Milks of the Earth: A mixture of finely ground almonds and water (sometimes plus other stuff, for flavor or preservation,etc) is called "milk" probably because it is milky in color, like other "milks" (soy, rice, coconut). Soy has the most protein. Rice is probably the least allergenic. I use a lot of soy milk (half each of sweetened and unsweetened) sometimes with almond milk. I never use cow's milk. ...Read more

Can almond milk cause acne in someone who  became a vegan 90 days ago and now only drinks almond milk instead of skim? She never had much acne before.

Possible.: I have had patients who break out when they drink almond milk. It's rare, but it does happen. If the brand you are drinking is sweetened, or has additives, that increases the chances. Try an unsweetened one without any additives (or make it yourself). If you still break out, you may have to switch to soy milk; or the cause may be something else entirely, such as another component of your new diet. ...Read more
