Ezekiel Bread

11 posts in this topic

Recently I heard a discussion on television about eating a gluten free, wheat free diet and this individual said she ate Ezekiel bread. After finding it at the health food store, I noticed the two principle ingredients are "sprouted" wheat and barley. Are these ingredients gluten free and can they be eaten by someone that has celiac? (I've not found anything on the internet about either.) The bread that's available is terrible and I'd love a sandwich or hamburger-- that I've done without for the past three years. If anyone knows about sprouted wheat or barley, I would certainly appreciate a reply. Thank you so much............Judy

Judy,

Have a look at the second question in this column. The same would apply to barley, as well. I haven't tried Ezekiel bread in a while, but I remember that I used to have some problems with it. I hope this information is useful!

Sarah :D

Thanks so much for your reply and the information on that site. I've not seen that one and found it quite interesting. Having been diagnosed three years ago, I've really not investigated things as I should. With this new forum I think I'll be on the computer much more and find more answers. Thanks again..........Judy

You're welcome, Judy! And if you're like me, you'll never get off the computer.... I just found out I have celiac disease not too long ago (self-diagnosed), and now that I've discovered that I'm not alone I'm craving community interaction! I'm sure I'll settle down to a *reasonable* amount of daily time online sometime...soon...maybe! Good luck to you!

Hi, I tried Ezekiel Bread, and I had a horrible Asthma attack after eating it. My Celiac symptoms usually present as wheezing, choking, and gasping for breath, and believe me, I did all those after eating sprouted wheat. I would say that the results were just the same as ingesting wheat or another grain. Welda

Ezekiel bread is NOT gluten free. Sprouting the grains does NOT get rid of the gluten in the grains. As to date there has been no way found to totally remove the gluten form the offending grains. Be cautious when you hear someone say things like "this process makes the grain gluten free or changes it to a form Celiacs can eat" etc. Most of these people are not informed properly about our diets.

I too wondered this when first going gluten free as I heard similar comments. My uncle is very sensitive to gluten, as well as other foods, yet he can eat Ezekiel bread with no symptoms. I had some early on after I went gluten free and had no ill effects. As we know, some people don't have symptoms yet have celiac. So just because you don't have the symptoms doesn't mean it's not creating havoc to your small intestine. I stay away from it now.

Good question. I think most people wonder that as we get so desperate for a good piece of bread... :unsure:

Good luck.

I'm new to the gluten-free world. My question regarding Ezekiel bread is how much gluten does it have compared to typical bread made with wheat flour? Is there a difference in the amount of gluten? Thanks in advance.

THis thread is several years old so product info may have changed.

I don't think there are any Ezekiel breads that claim to be gluten free. I haven't heard of them anyway. For Celiac, it really doesn't matter if the bread has less gluten then another bread. We can't have any gluten.

You could try to write to the company to find out if they know that info.

No. Absolutely not. Wheat, barley--sprouted or otherwise. Nope.

Tastes like cardboard anyway. blech. :P

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hey guys just looking for a bit of advice. I got 2 positive blood tests for celiac and found out my vit D was very low and parathyroid was elevated about 2 months ago. Went gluten free soon after and haven't cheated. Around the same time I had unrelated health issues that made me extremely constipated and when I finally got over that I felt much better. Now though another month on I seem to have gone back to feeling exactly the same as I did before I went gluten free. I'm having almost all the same symptoms and for the last few days my stomach's been awful. I don't know when I'll finally get to see a gastroenterologist as waiting times on the nhs are crazy and I'm floundering. I've read online it might be a lactose intolerance but I don't really want to cut it out without speaking to a health care professional (I'm vegetarian so already very restricted!). I know it might be too soon to be seeing a difference but I keep hearing about people feeling almost complete better after a couple of weeks so I'm disappointed. I'm also worried I might still be getting gluten but I don't know how sensitive I am/ what I'm reacting to/ how careful I have to be!

      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.
