Do you store the flour in the Freezer? and does anyone know of a good bread machine that works well with the gluten fee bread mixes?

Thanks for any and all help.

I store my yeast and my buttermilk powder in the freezer, but not any of my flours. I think if you use it regularly enough, then storing at room temperature is okay, but if you only use a little at a time and end up keeping a bag for a long time (like over a year or more), it might stay fresher if you freeze it.

Regarding bread machines, I threw mine out because it was too complicated to use with gluten-free bread and the loaf always turned out dense. It also took twice as long using the machine than just doing it by hand, plus I had better results.

However, I have heard good things about Zojiurshi, and here is a link http://www.gluten free.com/files/zojirushi.pdf that has instructions on how to set the machine for gluten-free breads.

Hope this helps you a little.

I recommend storing yeast in the refrigerator so it lasts longer. I store my flours in the freezer/refrigerator so it will last longer. The only flours that I know of that MUST be kept in the freezer are brown rice flour and bean flours which will go rancid.

I have the Zojirushi and love it. Also, you can purchase the bread machine from the Gluten Free Pantry.

thanks for the help! I hope to get thisgf way of baking under control. I have 3 other kids so I'm doing double duty in the kitchen. So far my son has not liked any of the breads but it's all so new to him still. I think i'll try the zojirushi, i've heard it does well with the heavy gluten breads.

Do you know if I adjust the sugar or honey in the muffins/breads recipes, will they still come out? My son thinks everything is so bland. If I could get a little bit sweeter taste into it maybe he would be willing to go with it.

thanks

Renee

If you are also cooking for other kids, it sounds like you are pretty busy. I would recommend that you try the Kinnikinnick white sandwich bread. It's ready made and the only ready made bread I would recommend but it is good and could save you some time. If it's not carried in a local health food store, you can order at www.kinnikinnick.com.

If you try adjusting ingredients, as you suggested, I would add a little sugar because if you add honey, that will affect the rising/volume of the bread.

good luck. Kim.

I recently found Kinnikinnick breads, bagels, etc. in a freezer case in Whole Foods. They are beginning to stock more gluten free foods there. I just wish they would carry the pancake mix from Kinnikinnick. This is in San Diego. You might try calling a nearby Whole Foods and ask. Shirley

    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?  
    • Thanks cyclinglady ... just wondering, do most of the people on this forum believe the Enterolab stool / gene testing to be non-trustworthy? Or are you just recommending a diagnosis from my MD so that she is also treating me with full belief/knowledge of my condition? I've been gluten free now for 2 weeks - by the time I get in to my doctor, she orders the bloodwork and I get to a lab it could be another 2 weeks before the bloodwork is done. From what I understand, just a month of gluten free eating could skew the results of the blood test. Supposedly, the stool tests are much more accurate. I hate to go backwards and start eating gluten again just so I can have a blood test done that may or may not substantiate the results of the stool / gene testing. I'm so confused ...
    • Try to stick to a whole foods diet.  Things like unseasoned stew, soup, etc.  Things easy-to digest, preferably not processed by a anyone except you.  Too often new celiacs start using gluten-free foods (cookies, bread, crackers).  Your body is not used to these grains and they often contain lots of junk.  For example, I react to Xantham gum.  It does not bother my gluten-free hubby, but it gets me every single time!   Did you read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping"?   It contains lots of valuable tips.  Make sure those meds are gluten free.  Supplements too.   I hope you feel better soon!    
    • Here are the actual tests.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Insist on the complete panel.  Let them know (your doctor) that your father had celiac disease.   Document in writing!  If you have celiac disease, your life can be improved.  All the things I attributed to aging were actually related to celiac disease.  It is never too late to feel well!  I am in my 50's but my Aunt iis 81.  We celebrate a Gluten free Thanksgiving every year!   Oh, my kid does not have celiac disease, but she is tested every few years even though she is symptom free!  There are silent celiacs.  My symptom?  Anemia.  No tummy issues.   Please advocate for your health.  Keep all records.  Doctors can not ignore written facts and requests.
