Ah..... The great bread debate!  :D

 

Bread varies by country.  Are you in the US?

 

I am in the US and I like Canyon Bakery San Juan bread  http://canyonglutenfree.com/   It is like a "whole wheat" bread.

 

You will find that a slice of gluten-free bread is  usually smaller than "regular' bread.  Toasting it makes it taste better.

 

Sometimes, its best to not eat any bread for a few months.  Sort of "forget" what regular bread tastes like. Use rice cakes, crackers, corn tortillas, lettuce wraps, etc.  Kids might like a slice of ham rolled around a little cheese and a little spinach snuck in.  Then cut small and stick with toothpicks.  Kids love to eat with toothpicks!  Toast with PB on it.  Find other things to eat besides a sandwich.

Yeah, corn bothers me. At first I couldn't tolerate ANY corn, but now have gotten to the point where I can handle corn starch. Almost ALL gluten-free breads have at least corn starch in them. I THINK the Canyon Bakehouse no linger does. (I know they USED TO have corn MEAL in their bread but no longer do.) I haven't had any Against the Grain bread, but I have had their frozen pizza and their baguettes and they were really good. They have no grains in them at all, so if corn bothers you (and if the Canyon Bakehouse DOES have corn starch), I think that would be your only choice.

I have tried: Three Bakers, Udi's, Rudy's.

they are all decent breads, IMHO but I like homemade, too.

I also like Brown rice tortilla wraps.

I find all these breads in the frozen section.

 

Keep them in the fridge and lightly toast. Zap the wraps in a moist paper towel in the micro for 30 seconds.

 

and Canyon Bakehouse is delicious, I agree. (I tried it at a friend's house in Mass.)

but I was not able to find it where I lived in NY.

 

I am hoping (now that I am in FL) that I can find it in the nearest Whole Foods.

I like Sami's better than Udi's for regular Sandwich bread.  http://samisbakery.com/  Udi's still makes better hamburger buns and hot dog buns though.  There's a supplier here in the South out of Dallas that makes the best hamburger buns I've ever had.  I don't know the name but they supply for the hamburger chain, Fuddruckers.

While I'm a fan of Udi's whole grain sandwich bread, I'm a bigger fan of rice paper wraps. Since going gluten-free, I find I don't think "bread" the way I used to. This is good because it means I'm not craving something I cannot have. But I've always been a huge lover of spring rolls (theory: my body was always guiding me toward foods that didn't want to destroy me). So, I make wraps using rice paper rounds. The rice paper has a relatively neutral flavor, and once you get used to working with them, filling and rolling goes pretty fast. 

 

I chop protein (chicken, beef, whatever) into tiny pieces, add lightly dressed cabbage or lettuce, maybe some matchsticked veggies like carrots, some cheese like feta. Then I roll, and store with a slightly damp paper towel. Depending on how I've seasoned the ingredients, I may use a dipping sauce. Seriously, so good.

 

Also, rice paper wrappers are super cheap.

 

Note: this technique probably won't work for peanut butter and jelly. Some things must remain as traditional as possible.

I love Schar deli-style bread. Doesn't need toasting and tastes pretty close to rye bread. Pretty pricey, but the slices are big do I can often cut one in half for a sandwhich.

I love rudis multigrain, I have always loved turkey sandwiches on whole wheat and that made a great replacement.  Also the Schar stuff that I have tried I really like.

We like Canyon Bakehouse best, but do eat mostly Udi's and Glutino Genius based on cost.

 

Toasting does improve - especially Udi's - and all make excellent grilled cheese :)

My family and I like Udi's bread & bagels.  Definitely prefer them toasted.  My kids didn't even say anything or complain when I switched over.  That was a nice surprise!

I've tried Udi's and Schar. I really like the Udi's but something in the ingredients gives me gas. My new discovery is Goodbye Gluten bread. My local Wegman's started carrying it. It's shelf stable and doesn't need to be toasted. I've tried the white bread and it's fantastic. It's a bit crumbly but not too bad. I've had turkey, PBJ on it. It's been sitting on my counter now for a week and it's still good.

 

http://www.glutenfreeislife.com/?p=5472 has a good review of it.

Mayby for a change: Blumenbrot, they have crispy bread with buckwheat, quinoa and chestnut. It is very tasty, good for sandwiches or just as a snack.

I had to look up the Blumenbrot, those look tasty!  I think in the US they may call them more like melba toast or crackers.  But I do love crackers :)  Pre-celiac diagnosis I probably ate more wheat that the average wheat-eater, haha.

If we buy it at the store, we usually get udis or against the grain. We tend to prefer the local bakeries, though. We are fortunate enough to have three of them near us.

Canyon Bakehouse is the best for us.  Celiac Hubby can now eat a "regular" sandwich without it falling apart.  Fortunately we can afford the price, and I order on-line.  Shipping is a little steep, but again, it's worth it for us.

I like Schar - I didn't need to toast it! But pretty expensive. I enjoy baking so I tend to bake my own from scratch. Or I get Udi's from Trader Joe's if it's too hot to use my oven.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • 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.
