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.

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'm so glad I didn't buy that bread!

 

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 :)

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
