Many people are still confused about the notion of rice milk. They turn up their faces and say “rice milk, what is that I don’t get it?” Then I simply tell them it is milk make from rice. You can basically make a milk using any grain believe it or not. Unfortunately it is not easy to make rice milk at home. Definitely not as easy as making your own homemade nut milk.
So unfortunately and fortunately rice milk would fit into a packaged product, but definitely on my approved packaged list!
There are many varieties at health food stores, grocery stores and other markets in between. Seemingly they may all be the same, but they are not. Many contain oils, added sugar and even preservatives. So just because it is non dairy, vegan and gluten free, doesn’t mean that it is always healthy. It is important to look at the fine print and look at the label.
The one brand that I have stayed loyal to over the years is Ryza. It is clean, pure and doesn’t have any oil, added sugar and hold together a really nice consistency. I don’t find that it separates like other rice milks. It is creamy, wholesome and delicious. I love pouring it on my oats in the morning, blending up in my smoothies or mixing it straight with just some Sun Warrior protein for a super high protein beverage.
