People or children who are sensitive or allergic to dairy can switch to a healthy tasty antioxidant rich black rice milk. Sensitivity to diary can cause mild symptoms like stomach upset, bloating, gastritis, congestion and/or allergic reactions like ear infections, severe congestion leading to wheezing or upper respiratory illness. I have personally seen tremendous improvement from ear infections from stopping cow’s milk and cheese for my son.
