Also worth noting is that almonds contain molds because they are a dried food item and candida can live on other molds quite easily; this is why cheese and all other dried food items are not allowed on the diet (such as apricots, figs, etc).
If you are doing a cleanse, you are basically throwing it away by consuming stuff like this…especially the chocalate almond milk. Its like going 5 steps forward and 4 steps back. Why do you think chocalate is ok on the diet?
If you want to consume almond milk in a safe manner, you need to make it at home. You need to soak the almonds in water and/or roast them in the oven, and this should remove almost all of the molds. Then you blend the almonds up in a blender and strain out the almonds…what is left over is almond milk! Takes maybe 2 minutes to make minus the roasting/soaking. We generally don’t recommend almond milk until you are symptom free which can take many months.
