Consumption of soy products is still very controversial. As a precaution, it is advisable not to consume more than 250 ml (1 cup) of soy beverage per day. Almond and rice beverages can be consumed to replace milk as long as they have been fortified.
Dried fruits can be eaten*. However, remember that a healthy diet is based on variety and that no food is “miraculous”, so make sure to consume dried fruits in reasonable amounts. What’s more, sulfites are added to dried fruits to prolong their shelf life and improve their colour. Many people are sensitive to sulfites and that is why it is advisable to opt for certified organic dried fruits that are sulfite-free.
