Rice Milk: from sue oakley on 2007-07-17

Hi



Just found the site as I'm starting combining again after 5 years in which I've gained 2 stone!! and I desperate need to lose weight. I am vegetarian.



Q. Is rice milk - P. S or N? I use Rice Dream Original with added calcium.

Rice Milk: from Peter on 2007-07-17

Rice Dream is mostly water, with 5.4\% carbohydrate and 4\% sugar.

In the food combining diet this would be classed as a carbohydrate. But note the high sugar levels. This is not suitable for a weight loss diet. You would do better to get you added calcium from calcium tablets, without the sugar.
