Brown Rice Bread? Anyone Had It?
0

13 posts in this topic

I went to Trader Joe's last night and GASP, they were out of the Udi's white bread. All they had was brown rice bread, and I have to say, I picked it up and it felt like two bricks, so I didn't buy it. I figured I'd ask here if anyone's tried it before I buy it.

Anyone?
Thanks :)

Unfortunately I can't remember the brand name for the life of me. It was a clear bag with pink and white design on it. I've tried to google to find the logo, but no luck so far. I'm still looking.

Found it! (finally!)

 

It was Food For Life Brown Rice Bread.

It IS a rock!  Our family won't eat it.  Get that UDI's or Rudis!  When it's not on sale, our local store can purchase a case (6 loaves) for me at a 15% discount.  That way I never out of bread.   I buy my bread at TJ's only when I'm out of state.

Thank you! I'm glad I didn't buy it. I was temped which is why I picked it up, and I almost dropped it b/c it was so hard and heavy!

I will stick to Udi's which I happen to like very much.

Our Trader Joe's was out of EVERYTHING Udi's today...I hope that's not a hint that they're going to stop carrying it. No signs were up, only gluten-free bread was the FFL Brown Rice Bread and TJ's Ryeless Rye.

I've had it and it's definitely not a great all around bread, but it certainly has its place. It's also almost all made from whole grain, so what you give up in taste, you make up for in nutrition.

I haven't been back to Trader Joe's yet. I ended up getting some Schar bread from Fairway Market. (They didn't have the Canyon one that everyone seems to really like) I too hope Trader Joe's empty shelves weren't a sign of anything. Maybe there was just a delivery problem.

 

I wish I could get into making my own bread, but so far I haven't had much success.

I haven't tried the Canyon Bakehouse bread but the hamburger buns were REALLY good. The best gluten-free one I've had. Our Walmart has recently started carrying the CB breads on a wire rack next to the gluten-free section in the baking aisle.

Maybe start with an easier bread such as focaccia.  Have you tried making that?

I haven't tried it - but I'm certainly willing. If anyone has a good recipe I'm game :)

    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with nerve pain. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.      
    • Rudy's Not Gluten Free
      Rudy's is one of my favorite places to eat, but you do have to be VERY careful due to cross-contamination.  I always get the cutter's choice brisket, some form of potatoes (new potatoes or baked potato), pinto beans, 3-bean salad and use generous slathering of their regular BBQ sauce, not the Sissy Sauce.   My daughter has gotten sick a couple of times dining with us at Rudy's, but we have narrowed down the culprit to cross contamination.  She usually orders the stuffed baked potato, gets brisket (chopped up)--not the chopped BBQ, and asks them to use a new plastic knife to  cut open the potato.  They use tissue to pick up the chopped meat and put it on the potato which also comes with sour cream, butter/margarine, and grated cheddar cheese.  They have always been very courteous about accommodating us.  This has eliminated my daughter from having reactions.  (The regular metal knife had been used on bread.)  I also reach over the tray as it is being filled and place one of their paper tissues over my meat or potato so that when they place my husband's bread slices or sandwich (made with regular bread), crumbs won't get on my food.  I am so thankful for Rudy's--it is so good--and with taking these precautions, I believe it is relatively safe.  
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Thank you, squirmingitch. I'll pass that on to Mom, too. Cristiana, did they ever determine what caused your nerve pain or do you now think it was related to Celiac? That form of shingles sounds awful (well, any form sounds awful - my mom's had it 3 times!) and fortunately I do not think that's what's ailing me.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
