Presumably this means something like Rice Milk that only has minimal sugar in coud be ok.
I think Raster’s point is that you shouldn’t obsess about sugar and carbs if you’re eating foods that contribute towards the diet, like kefir and yoghurt. Counting carbs is stressful and limiting to your diet. Thinking in terms of food can be more helpful.
Cow’s milk is about 4.5% sugar, which is the only carb it contains. Rice milk is 4% sugar and 5% starch. It also has no protein and much less fat. You’d be better off eating a croissant than drinking a glass of rice milk.
