I found that carrageenan, a common seaweed/algae-based thickener, can cause inflammation in the stomach and bowel. While non-toxic outside of the body once the chemical process of digestion begins it can cause upset in many sensitive people. I used to wonder why I would experience a mild irritation in my stomach after having cereal or oatmeal with store bought almond or coconut milk and after some research, began to suspect carrageenan. So whats a veg foodie to do? Make my own! I also found a way to use the pulp left over which was another reason I had avoided the process of home-made milk before. Hope you enjoy these recipes!
