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'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 :)

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
