Yes, for me it seems to be the large quantities of tapioca starch that does it.

I had a problem with Gluten Free breads for several years. I got to the point where I would avoid them all together. Not to mention they taste terrible!
I have found a wonderful new brand that I have been using for a couple of months. I LOVE IT! My Daughter prefers it over regular bread and my family members say it tastes like normal bread.

visit charlottesbakery.com

The rice bread is AMAZING! They have a couple other flavors that are good too, but I like the rice the very best. SHipping can get rather expensive, so contact the company and see if they have any stores near you that sell their product.


Good luck!

I discovered a problem with the gluten-free breads (I went a little crazy baking and cooking all the breads and muffins I could find when I first switched over) and found out my problem was not a bread issue but a yeast issue.

I am not saying that you have that problem, only that I did. I like the Chebe breads which help but not great for sandwhiches.

I can't eat gluten free bread because I am intolerant to rice, corn, soy and potatoes as well (and can't tolerate starches of any kind well). There could be lots of different reasons why you can't tolerate it. Really, you need to test all the ingredients separately.

When I tried that, I got an immediate reaction to tapioca (burning tongue). The reactions to the other ingredients aren't immediate, since they're stomach or gut reactions.

I don't eat them any more, either because I am intolerant to all the grains that I've tried, and also to tapioca. Ursula--I don't get burning, but tapioca makes my mouth very dry as soon as I begin chewing it. It also causes me stomach upset. I tried The Gluten Free Pantry French Bread (mix) as it has few ingredients--no dairy, soy, or tapioca. I still couldn't tolerate it, but you might. Have you tried this one, Betty? It's also possible that you could be intolerant to grains or tapioca. Don't you just love being a food detective :D

I can't do potatoes too often so a lot of gluten free breads are off limits for me because of that. I do sometimes eat gluten free bread and cakes that are made with just rice and corn though. Althought I really prefer rice cakes, I must be the only person in the world who really likes them. :D :D :D

Have you folks tried sorghum breads? That's my favorite bread flour so far. I've experimented with several flour blends, but find the sorghum is the key ingredient. I don't know how well it would work for those of you with other sensitivities, but it might be worth a try.

She made some tarts
All on a summer's day.
The Knave of Hearts,
He stole the tarts
And took them clean away.

Don't worry a colonoscopy isn't that bad. I had one about 2 weeks ago. I got sedated so it wasn't too bad.xxx

I find that some brands make me feel not-so-great, but the brown rice bread from Whole Foods is OK.

I really like the um I think it's enjoy life bread that's really springy (it tastes like eating a sponge, but in a good way) but it seems to make me a little sick so I don't eat it anymore.

:lol: :lol:

I also react to a lot of the gluten-free breads/baked goods. I don't tolerate the alternative grains very well and other substitute ingredients. I can get away with eating them once in a blue moon, but I never could eat them everyday or several days a week even.
