We purchase the 64 ounce size for $3.24 at a local store (about $0.05 an ounce.) I came online to look for a better price when purchasing in bulk. The price for these small 8 ounce containers is $0.16 per ounce and causes MUCH more packaging waste. I appreciate the convenience of having it in a small package for dining out, etc... but It's just as easy to take an insulated sippy cup and be more environmentally conscious.
The Rice Dream Website sells the 32 ounce size but their price is $0.10 an ounce, without shipping costs. Not much advantage to purchasing online so far. I was hoping that Amazon would have a decent cost on the larger sizes with free super saving shipping, because I could stop shopping at Wal-Mart entirely.
I have contacted Amazon to request that they carry the larger 64 ounce size in cases. The first time I called, the Customer Service Rep
s computer locked up and she requested that I call her back. The second time I called I was told to leave feedback on the product and that all feedback is read by Amazon and that it could make a difference and might increase the chance that the product would be carried in a larger size, due to demand.
Living an hour from most major grocery stores, that carry this product, finding it on amazon has made my life so much easier!
The 8 oz size is perfect for my daughter to pack in our day bag, when we head out for the day. And she loves that she can drink it from a box, (as juice does not settle well in her stomach, and her older sibling get juice boxes, and she doesnt.) Now she has her own box, and that makes her very happy to feel she is being included and not left out with a plain old cup!
For my 2 yr old, this has Made HER Day!
However, Imagine now uses the cheaper canola oil in their rice milk products. Canola oil contains erucic acid, a toxic chemical. The FDA has limited canola oil to no more than 2% erucic acid to protect our health, and do not allow it in infant formula. In additon, studies show the erucic acid it contains is toxic (see below). I have not been able to find any long term longitudinal controlled studies on humans to prove its safety as far as all the adversely affected organs.
Rice Dream has two Healthwise Rice beverage products, that use safflower oil and no canola oil, have half as much sugar, and include plant sterols that may lower serum cholesterol levels. Good Karma Whole Grains Ricemilk is organic and also canola and sugar free. It has a thicker, richer and creamier body and flavor, less watered down. The vanilla flavor is a delicious drink. Westsoy Rice Beverage has a similar consistency to Rice Dream with a little more body and milky flavor, and is canola free.
The same canola issue (as well as sugar) also applies to the Imagine frozen desert products.
Because there have been Internet rumors about Canola that are based on misinformation, I provide some citations of scientific papers and government publications below.
Studies on erucic acid in rats and piglets show heart lesions, decreased red blood cell count, and other tissue and organ damage. Erucic acid crosses the blood-brain barrier and is known to affect nerve cells.Read more ›
However, you can be right at 20 ppm, which makes a lot of celiacs sick, and still label yourself, "gluten free". (The rule should have said, "less than 20 ppm", not "20 ppm or less".)
This is where Amazon is fantastic--they made the company list the gluten in this, so we know it's NOT gluten free. (I have yet to find a Hain's food product that was actually gluten free, although some of them are legally gluten free. Look for their name on the labels so you know what to avoid, even if they are hiding behind the federal law and they have labeled their products gf.)
Pacific Rice Milk and Whole Foods' store brands of rice milk are gluten free, though. Buy those instead.
