Is organic rice milk in a carton okay on this diet? If not, can someone explain why not. (The carton doesn't say anything about patuerization.) Thank you.

I'm not 100% sure, but anything in a carton is probably pasteurized, even if it doesn't say so. (Not sure they are required to state if the food is pasteurized.)

No, anything packaged like that is cooked beyond pasteurization to be shelf-stable. There's no way you could keep a raw liquid good in a carton (refrigerated) for more than a couple days. It doesn't have to say pasteurized. It's a given, like canned green beans just say, "green beans" on the label. Try making your own nut/seed milks from recipes on here and elsewhere. Easy, healthy, cheaper.

I watched Alissa's video and one of the guests specifically asked about that. She said NO to rice and soy milk. It seems like the rice and soy are cooked before processing. Hope that helps. I have to say, I don't miss it at all.

Unless the package says "raw", then it's not. Simple as that.

Yup...both are cooked before packaging. Nut mylks are delicious, easy to make and loved by adults AND children too~

While things that have been pastuerized don't have to say so on the packaging, things that have not been pastuerized are required to carry a government warning. I buy fresh juices from my health food store fairly regularly, and I don't drink it unless The Man warns me not to! :p
