    Carageenan is pretty natural. It’s an Irish sea weed that produces a gelatin like substance that they use as a thickener. Something like AgarAgar. Cheaper products use it to take the place of the good? stuff they take out.

    Carragenan is not as safe as they want you to believe..I will add the link and add quote some articles? here …

    IS CARRAGEENAN REALLY NATURAL?

    Carrageenan is? about as wholesome as monosodium glutamate
    (MSG), which is extracted from rice, and can equally be
    considered natural. Aspartame (NutraPoison) is also natural,
    as it is extracted from decayed plant matter that has been
    underground for millions of years (oil).

    So too are many
    other substances such as carrageenan that can also be
    classified by? FDA and USDA as wholesome and natural
    food additives.

    Just because something comes from a natural source does
    not mean that it is safe. The small black dots in the
    eyes of potatoes contain substances that are instantly
    fatal if eaten. Got poison? You will if you eat the
    black dots on the “eyes” of potatoes.

    Carrageenan is a gel. It coats the insides of a stomach,
    like gooey honey or massage oil. Digestive problems often
    ensue. Quite often, soy eaters or soymilk drinkers react
    negatively to carrageenen, and blame their discomforting
    stomachaches on the soy.High weight molecular carrageenans are considered to be safe,
    and were given GRAS status (safe for human consumption) by
    the? FDA. Low weight carrageenans are considered to be
    dangerous. Even SILK admits this.

    Dr. Tobacman shared studies with me? that demonstrate that
    digestive enzymes and bacterial action convert high weight
    carrageenans to dangerous low molecular weight carrageenans
    and poligeenans in the human gut. These carrageenans
    have been linked to various human cancers and digestive
    disorders. Again, I remind you that Tobacman’s evidence
    and conclusions are based upon human tissue samples,
    not animal studies.

    SHELF STABLE

    On the shelf (non-refrigerated),? I found Rice Dream.
    They do not use carrageenan. They use xantham gum.
    Soy Dream (made by Imagine Foods) does not use it
    either. Their emulsifier is rice syrup. Eden Soy
    does not use it. They use barley extract.

    Do a little experiment. Drink a quart of SILK.
    Pay careful attention to your carrageenen-induced
    tummy ache and intestinal discomfort. Many consumers
    unfairly blame that on soy. Now you know the truth.
    Drink a quart? of VitaSoy, 8th Continent, Soy Dream,
    or Eden Soy, and you will not get the garrageenan-blues.

    Why do some manufacturers “get it,” while others
    remain clueless?

    That’s what? i thought, with soo much advertisement and promo behind the whole thing. Is it the same thing with coconut water?

  • NYC812

    coconut water is excellent but you are? better off getting it directly from the coconut ..the rest water you see is a scam…to begin with aluminum is not good!…you are not getting any benefit..I have been meeting people who are in the business of selling healthy food or products like water ..only to find out is some factory in Nevada producing it wow was I disappointed! bottom line beware of scams and frauds

    I have thrown out my FLAX/OAT ‘milks’ because they also contain CARRAGEENAN. I was wondering why my tummy felt soooo awful after I ate my cereals, my tummy would either get too acidic or it would feel really heavy. THANK? YOU! YOU ARE LIKE A MOTHER FOR ME. 🙂

    One of the ingredients that is of high concern to me is “Natural Flavors” and is a RED FLAG. “Natural Flavors” includes ingredients that they? don’t want you to know, and usually means it has MSG in it.

  • ayemaya75

    Not only are they malnourishing their child because of the lack of? pure and natural nutrients, but they are slowly poisoning them.

  • ayemaya75

    Everything is “natural”, even toxic lab chemicals come from a “natural” source, so it is? a general term where almost everything can be included. “Arsenic” is also “natural”. I’m sure that arsenic is not in it (at least I hope it’s not), I’m only using it as an example of “natural” and also “toxic” ingredient.

    I got some of that Trader Joe’s coconut milk last week because I was amazed at the low price. It was in the refrigerated section and I assumed it was FRESH. I figured it was watered down, so I used it straight for tom ka pak soup instead of a curry. Even then, it was too watered down — had NO FLAVOR and NO AROMA. Really sucks! Better to use canned Thai coconut milk or better yet make it? fresh,
