Haha cannot believe I wrote "Wholecornsstore" LOL Thats funny!! I am sguessing itred tho and still have the "Brain fog" It "Whole Food Market?" I cannot even remember the name of the store LOL Any hoo I found 1 bag of the noodles I bought and it is made by : bionature : They are Rice , Potato and soy. I said I only found one of the bag , but I think I only bought one bag. I had two and only ended out buying one. Well maby I should go to bed now huh?

That could have been my error. From time to time, my tablet likes to jump all over the place and inserts letters and words. I am guessing it happened when I was typing "cornstarch" and my less than brilliant tablet added it to your blurb. Weird!

I get the trader joes brown rice pasta. I can't hardly tell the difference. It has a nice texture too and is hard to overcook to boot.

I really like GoGo Quinoa brand. It is a rice/quinoa combo pasta and it has a mouth feel and texture of wheat pasta. I belong to the ONFC and order it all from there as it is much cheaper than any grocery store or Walmart.

My daughter is vegetarian , ( not that , that makes a big dif in this thread) but she came to visit and I was telling her that I had bought some gluten-free pasta. She said the rice ones were really good. I know I have had rice noodles b4 and like them.

I'm very happy for this thread! I'm new and I just made spaghetti last night with De Boles rice spaghetti. OMG it was NASTY. Weird tasting and like a thick glutinous sludge in my mouth. BLEAH. 

Sorry I have nothing to contribute as I'm still experimenting, but thank you all!

Ty because I just made something with De Boles, I ate it but didn't like it!!! 1st the water was super thick as it was boiling, would of been good for gravy!! They package said do not over boil so I boiled it 3 minutes less than they said ... It sucked up all the gravy I had and it was a big pile of mush!! Yuk!!! I will cook the rest up for the cats or something I am not sure!! Good thing I didn't try it on hubbs 1st! I just bought what they had at the store!! I guess I'd better buy some on line. pftttt!! Well I love to order on line!! :) I will go for the Tink next time!! :)

You are correct on every point you made.  Gluten free pasta will never be the same as we remember....it's a different animal.  I use it for spaghetti and it may last one day, as left overs, with the sauce combined.  It does suck up liquids and leftovers are not too good.

 

Over cooking gluten free pasta is not too good.  You have to experiment and try different brands.  I do like Sam Mills (found at my local Food Lion) and I can't wait to order some Depuma's Gluten Free Fresh Raviolli.

 

 Maybe someday it will be the pasta of the past. :)

I am not a big fan of pasta anyway or bread!! hahaha must be my body knew i was allergic :) Not really I was forced to eat Biscuits and Gravy as a child and sense then I have never been a big fan of Bread!! Specially wet bread!! noodles I am not a big fan of because Hubbs loves them and eats them at just about every meal!! I get sick of them! So when I am in the mood, they'd better be good!!

Ancient quinoa is somewhat forgiving if it is overcooked, but it depends on the shape. Elbows hold up better than any other shape.

I've had good luck with the rice & corn pasta at Target. It's the store brand, Archer Farms, & it's made in Italy.  I've tried several rice-only brands, & they seemed really starchy. One brand turned the cooking water gelatinous.  However, Target has no dedicated gluten-free section (in spite of my FB posts...lol) so you'll have to look for it in the pasta section.

 

 

After seeing your post, I bought some of the Archer Farms Fusili last night - WOW. I am hooked! Thank you, bc if not for your post I never would have tried it!

We like Tinkyada. I boil it in a *lot* of salted boiling water, and only until slightly undercooked.

I always know it's done when all the starch rises to the top.

 

A suggestion, no matter what kind of pasta you're using: undercook it a little (al dente), rinse it it cold water, then put it in with whatever sauce or such your having it with and let it heat back up in it. That seems to help get the starch off and it holds together a bit better.

Another fan of the Ancient Harvest corn/quinoa pasta here. We have tried many, many gluten-free pastas & this one is GOOD.

    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
