Soy/Rice/Non-Dairy Milk that doesn't have added Calcium

My husband is a dialysis patient, and can't have any dairy or extra calcium. Are there any "milks" out there that are not fortified with calcium? Is it possible to make your own soy or rice milk? He dearly loves cereal for breakfast and for a snack, it's tough to find those that aren't fortified, but there are a few, but I haven't been able to find a milk to go on them. Any help is greatly appreciated, his diet was absolutely turned upside down once he had to go on dialysis. Thanks again.

  1. Pacific Natural Foods organic almond milk has no calcium. The plain flavor isn't too sweet and is pleasantly neutral for cereal. You should be able to find it at most natural foods stores, and definitely Whole Foods and Trader Joe's (cheapest at TJ's).
