Yes, I learned how bad carrageenan is for us folks with colitis and extremely upset and disappointed with finding it in my almond milk! It's in a lot of stuff, not just nut milk also different ice cream brands, even the so-called healthy Breyers! Very disappointed! I discovered it's not in Fred Meyer or Kroger's brand called Simple Truth. Unfortunately, it still other stuff in it. The best way to get your nut milk is to make it yourself using raw nuts that you've soaked for a few hours.

Dear Fellow Sufferers,

I have done some research that has revealed a crazy element concerning my chronic colitis. Actually I thought of it from reading a post here that mentioned that carrageenan could cause diarrhea. I have been having worsening bouts for about 7 months and have been trying to figure out how my diet could have changed and what could have caused this. I had started drinking a lot more of the coconut and almond milks...this is suppose to be a GOOD thing, right? Also putting it in my Healthy whey protein drinks and smoothies. Come to find out that both the nut milks and the protein powder have carrageenan in them. Also the Aloe Vera Inner Fillet Gel that I had been drinking has it in the formula also. I am going to eliminate this immediately from my diet. I am not a very strong person, my immune system isn't so great.

Maybe this isn't your problem, but I am certainty going to find out. If you have a problem with the big 'D', it may be worth it to ck the ingredients in the 'healthy' things you have been ingesting. Bless you all.
