Great Grains gluten-free Bakery In Chattanooga
0

14 posts in this topic

We went last Friday while visiting relatives and you will not believe how good their stuff is. I got two types of cookies, coffee cake, white sandwich bread (not pre-sliced), french bread loaf and garlic crisps. All for under $20. I'm trying to convince the home office to let that store (on E. Brainerd in Chat. TN) ship to Atlanta since it's a 1 day ship from Chat. Maybe if some others of you also e-mail them they will at least do a test run. I'm telling you people you will not believe how wonderful the baked goods are....it is hard for me to believe they are gluten free. They put everything else (ready made) I've tried to shame. I was in heaven all weekend and still have tons of goodies in my freezer.

Where the heck are all you Chattanoogans??? If you've been to this bakery, then you know how great their gluten-free stuff is. I'd like to get Atlantans interested in trying the bakery with the UPS ground service so please share your thoughts on the gluten-free bakery - even if you don't agree with me.

Also, had my first pc. of really good toast today. The white sandwich bread that I got in TN is even better than kinickinnick's white tap. rice bread. But of course it's fresh, not frozen, so that is to be expected.

Yes Vincent - I thought of you and wondered how far you were. This place is so good I would totally drive up and back in a day just to load up things in a cooler to carry me over six months. But only IF I can't convince them to ship to me directly.

Okay people good news! Well I mean if you're interested in ordering from the gluten free bakery in Chat.

I'm working with the corp. office to see if they can get the bakery owner (franchise) in Chat. to offer shipment that are only 1-2 days out from their location. You can find out what you are by calling 1-800 pick ups and telling them your zip code and the bakery zip (below).

For those of you who care below is the actual bakery (btw I was off on their name -oops! It's actually Great Harvest. Also, I'm listing the toll free of the number of the person I'm working with at corp. so you can call them too and rally support behind the idea if you are so inclined. You will not be disappointed if you give this bakery a chance. Also this is the ONLY bakery in the gluten-free dedicated facility in the country.

Great Harvest Bread Co.

8006 E. Brainerd Rd.

Chattanooga, TN 37421

Oh and there are Great Harvest in Atlanta but apparently they don't offer gluten-free items. I'm going to double check that tomorrow. Plus I do not want items from a non ded. facility anyway and I'm sure the rest of you don't either.

Okay - Atlantans here's your chance for yummy gluten free bread that's not frozen when you get it.

Great Harvest in Chat. TN will ship on Tues. or Wed. only, the gluten free stuff they bake those days. Now their website is www.chattanoogabreads.com and they have a baking schedule posted each month. What I can't tell is what exactly is baked on Tues. and Wed. but if you're interested you can call and find out yourself. I had their french bread last night with my fet. alfredo and nothing about my meal really tasted gluten free at all - just great pasta and great bread. Since this is a new service you'd have to call in your order but hey, it the sales go up, they may think of having a ded. facility here in Atlanta. That of course is my ultimate goal with this project. Seriously people - get ordering even if you only get a loaf of French bread which you will not believe is gluten free - I promise you. You must heat it up for it to be great but it only takes five minutes at 350. Also, their coffee cake is tying French bread for first place on best tasting gluten-free goodies.

I live in Knoxville, TN and I am only an hour and 15 minutes away from there. I am going to have to check it out soon. We were going to move there, but now we aren't. I would love for them to ship the stuff to our EarthFare here in Knoxville. That would be great if they could. It isn't that far here and I know they could sell the stuff if it is as good as you say. I am definitely going to check it out soon. I go out of town this week, but after that I will make a trip down there. Thanks so much for sharing this.

mamaw - Great Harvest will not ship anywhere that is not a 1-2 day ship using UPS ground. To find out what shipping service you'd have, go to ups website (www.ups.com) or call 1-800-PICK-UPS and you have to give your zip code and the bakery's zip. Then they tell you how long it will take for ground packages. The bakery could probably ship overnight but not many people want to pay more for shipping than the products they ordered. The woman at the bakery told me that they thought shipping overnight would be cost prohibitive for the customer and she's right. It wasn't until I got home that I figured out that I'm only a day away from TN for UPS ground and thus my quest began to get the bakery to ship here. Also, you're allowed to whine.....I live in Atlanta and I'm not sure how many GH bakeries we have here.....there are 3 within 20 miles of me and they don't have gluten free goodies. I never would have guessed Chat. TN would have the gluten free stuff before we would.

We go there pretty often. They have moved though - now they are over closer to Signal Mt. We love the cookies. They use Betty Hagman's recipes. :)

I am within their range, according to UPS. We have a Great Harvest here but deffinitely not Gluten-free. I tried accessing both websites mentioned and couldn't get the one Great Harvest mentioned and the other, only the homepage came up but none of the features worked. I'd love to give it a try if it's reasonably priced as you said.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
