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
