Does anyone know of a brand of soy or rice milk that is NOT made on shared lines with almond milk? I started getting persistent congestion, runny nose, and hyper sensitive skin around the time our soy milk manufacturer started producing almond milk. (I didn't know this at the time because I didn't know they were the same parent company until recently. Sure enough, they are made on shared lines, as are every brand I have called thus far.) Now, I am finding it almost impossible to find safe soy or rice milk. Almonds appear to be one of my most sensitive allergies. Any suggestions?

Update: I received one more reply this morning and found Natura brand soy beverage is made in a nut and peanut-free facility. Yay! Now, to find a place that sells it...

We buy Natura at Loblaws and Food Basics. FB is cheaper! :)
I think I've even seen it at WalMart.

We found them at Save on Foods and I have been really happy with both the taste and (so far) lack of runny nose. I have never seen them before at Costco... will add it to my list of things to search for the next time I am there.

I found some, but at $3-something a carton. Costco near me does not have it but I will keep looking and even ask to have them bring it in. It has been great though; no reactions since switching!

We've been good with So Nice and So Good - my mate is allergic to almonds and thus far that line of soy drinks hasn't caused hir any issues what so ever - silk on the other hand has caused us no end of issues (me with coconut and hir with the almonds).

Our Costco sells it $8.99 for 6 946ml cartons. Sometimes it's on sale for $2.00 off the price. You can bet that I stock up then! :D

Do fill out the form and ask them to carry it.

About a year ago, a Costco opened up very close to me. I've been meaning to ask them about this. Thanks for the reminder. :)
