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

    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best  
    • Well HIV undermines the entire immune system as I understand it, so that would be akin to using dynamite to put out a kitchen fire! There is some work going on to try and retrain the immune system to not see gluten as a threat though: http://www.immusant.com/docs/ImmusanT DDW Data Release FINAL 5.24.16.pdf  I'm laughing as I write this imagining the conversations you could have with people as you tell them you'd like to contract HIV so that you can eat a decent sandwich
