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

hi patty, I bought the gluten-free pantry white bread mix last week, I'm going to try it this weekend, so I'll see if it sits any better, all the ones I've tried so far feel like I ate a rock!

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.

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.

I don't feel the greatest with alot of the popular gluten free breads. For me its the yeast and potato starch. I do ok with a millet/flax bread I get at my local health food store. I don't over do it either. I don't have the web site available but its from Sami's bakery and its located in Florida.

The breads with fruit juice are heavy and ok tasting, but I just don't have any desire to eat them. There is no way I can finish a whole loaf before it goes bad, so it's too expensive. I forgot the name of the kind that looks like a real loaf of white bread, but it's made with corn- it recommends that you toast it-it's ok, but it makes me bloated and gassy, so I choose not to eat that either. The corn muffin mixes are ok, but they are so crumbly and I have to douse them with spray butter and jam to eat them. I really only crave bread when my boyfriend eats hot dogs or sausages with buns!

Ursula, I've never posted so I hope this is correct. I'm just beginning a gluten free diet to see if it resolves my long history of malabsorption,burping, burning,constipation/diarrhea etc. I have been eating a lot of the gluten free products for a couple of years because I found out I did better without wheat. Then nothing seemed to work(stressful period also in life). For about 2 years as I became worse my tongue also began burning. You have me wondering about the tapioca. How did you find this out? Do other foods also cause the burning as well? Also how did you find out all the foods you were allergic to, an allergist? Thanks, Lynn

I don't have any problems with the gluten-free bread, but I get the same symptoms when I eat corn as I do gluten.

It seems as if, for many, grains should be avoid 100% of the time. I feel best when I eat fruits, vegetables, and legumes.

I generally avoid the gluten free breads and treats, they do not agree with me and although the effect is not as bad as being glutened it's bad enough. It is only once a month or so that I have some gluten free toast and I haven't found a rice bread that I really like anyways. Home made treats are definitely superior, they taste better and I feel better when I eat them but I can't do them often.

I have to keep reminding myself that I am ill and it will take time to recover and that I need to be very gentle with my digestion, it is just not up to too many sweets.

I have a problem with gluten-free breads because of an egg allergy. Many of the breads have eggs, although not all. Maybe there's another allergy involved.

My fave so far is the 4-flour bread in Bette Hagman's The Gluten Free Gourmet Bakes Bread, using the sesame variation & replacing all sugar with molasses. It isn't all sorghum, just one of the ingredients, but it seems to make a big difference.

    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)
