Against The Grain
0

14 posts in this topic

I have to share this with everyone I know, because Against the Grain's Bread is absolutely the BEST gluten-free Product I have ever had!

I bought a frozen baguette on a whim at Wegman's hoping to make some bruschetta. And I thawed the bread on the counter for about half an hour and started slicing. I munched on a slice thinking it would be petty gross until toasted (like most gluten free breads are).

But instead, it was FABULOUS! It was gooey and soft on the inside just like real bread.

I almost started crying I was so happy and proceeded to eat the entire loaf.

But i figured, what the hell-I haven't had anything that tasted that good in over 5 years, I was aloud to eat the whole loaf.

Regardless, it is fabulous whether toasted or not.

This is the link to their website. they don't ship directly, but they do give you a list of places you can find their products in your state.

I HIGHLY Recommend it.

I agree with you there. I've been using their breads for a couple of months we have a local health food store that carries them and they are excellent. The are not good cold, you have to warm them up or nuke them but then they are so good!

Sounds really interesting. As I read your comments on how good their bread is, I realized that if I were to taste bread like that, I'd get scared, thinking it was gluten-filled! Funny, to think I have come to expect gluten-free breads to be notably different than the gluten-filled stuff, to the degree that I wouldn't feel confident no matter what the label says. I guess I'd only feel safe if I can make it myself. Quite a powerful motivator, pain can be.

They don't list the ingredients on their web site. Do you still have the bag?

We love all their products - bagels, baguettes, pizza and rolls. The ingredients for the baguette are tapioca starch, milk, eggs, mozzarella cheese, canola oil and salt. Everything's found in the frozen section. We put it in the oven for about 10 minutes to warm it up - my daughter eats an entire loaf in one sitting, too. And their stuff is even loved by the gluten eaters in my family.

Hi,

I haven't tried that bread but will go to their site and look to see where I can buy i! I also just found an amazing product. I first bought it in Wegman's but then found it at Whole Foods. The brand is called Wild Thymes (www.wildthymes.com). They make great sauces, marinades, dessings etc. I have tried a few things that were all amazing. Only a few of their items are not gluten free. What is cool is that on their website they have the ingredient list and nutritional labels, so you can see everything! They also have lots of great recipes.

Ah, thanks. I had a feeling it was going to have something I can't have. Looks like the only ingredients I won't react to are the tapioca and the salt LOL!

I agree absolutley delicious! Only wish it was lower in fat. Trust me I will indulge once in a while but I'm probably the opposite of most and have a wt issue from gluten so the extra fat will make it harder for me to lose. Actually having a hard time finding low fat, great tasting products. Love bread and have found another bread I love too by Le Garden(multi grain) but still higher in fat than I would like although so far this is the only bread I can find that compares to gluten bread, makes great sandwiches. So far haven't gained from the higher fat content but I'm sure it will catch up to me not to mention my colesterol. Anyone else finding this a problem and what do you do?

I think with the gluten-free "bread" type products they add the fat for flavor, in the form of oil, cheese, etc. I love Against the Grain but... the only thing I find that works it to either not eat it as often or exercise a lot more. Thankfully gardening season is here!

The company just sent me a file with nutrient info and ingredients of all their products. Every one of them has the same main ingredients: tapioca starch, milk, eggs, mozzarella cheese, canola oil and salt.

As for a gluten-free bread with lower fat content, I never add fat to my breads (unless you count what I spread on them). Thankfully, fat hasn't been a problem for me, but I find my breads turn out better without it anyway.

I'm beginning to see I'm in the minority, as I don't like "white bread". Even as a kid I liked whole grain breads best. Maybe my body needed the nutrients (I think it still does).

I read that people who tend to prefer dark meat (poultry and red) need more iron? I would guess that our tastes do tend to reflect our nutritional needs.

I have to chime in and say YES! Against The Grain stuff is freakin unbelievable. That's how I made my first garlic bread in years. Slice lengthwise and douse with pureed roasted garlic and melted butter, toast. That was hard. OH MY GOD!!! It's so good!

I agree with all of you AGAINST THE GRAIN GOURMET is the best!!!!! I DO NOT use any other rolls or baguettes. It is expensive but totally worth it. I never thought I would ever be able to eat a sandwich again. Now that I have tried these rolls even if there was a miracle drug to allow us to eat gluten and not get sick I would never want to eat another regular roll again. The gluten free ones are out of this world!!!! I am so disappointed that I have never gotten a chance to try their pizza. No where near me in PA sells it just the rolls. But I am not going to complain cause I can buy their other products.

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      I hope you do well on your new diet cristiana, whatever it turns out to be.  Another site with lots of paleo diet info is Marks Daily Apple.  He also lists cooking oils that are good for you vs bad for you to eat.  Try searching his site for topics of interest.  I am not too interested in the paleo diet backstory as such.  But it seems like a good diet for many people to try at least. The diabetes forum has good info also, from people with diabetes vs doctors.  They used to have a chat for people to ask questions, but I don't know i that is still active.  From memory, some of the people there limited themselves to 1 cracker a day's worth of carbs.  And they were off their medication completely.   Mostly against doctors advice about diet, but some doctors give bad advice about diabetes to people.  Like telling people they have to eat carbs to be healthy, which is not true. http://www.diabetesforum.com/forum.php
    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Welcome!   I am not a doctor, but with your test results you should continue to go forward in the diagnostic process.   My main symptom was anemia and I didn't even have gut issues at all!  People with celiac disease can present in many ways.  My blood test was mildly positive yet my biopsy (via endoscopy) revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage. I would spent time learning about celiac disease and make sure you do not start the gluten free diet before all testing is complete.  This is critical in getting an accurate diagnosis.   Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      My doctor thinks i might have coeliac disease, but i hope not, the thought of not being allowed to eat all the things i love to eat for the rest of my days is daunting! Changes to social life, eating out, bbq's and the all the other joys of life would be immense! I have had two blood tests done for celiac disease, the first one came back as 7.2 u/ml    (normal range 0.0 - 6.9 u/ml) The second one which was taken about a month later came back as 22.0 u/ml What do these results generally suggest?   I am a 47 year old UK male. 13 stone. 6ft tall. I'm booked into see the gut specialist next month and to get a biopsy done. My symptoms which have been going on for about 8 months now include bouts of diarrhea, slight upper stomach aches, fatigue/weak feeling joints in lower body like legs, knees, hips and feet, tingling/burning/stinging feeling in buttock area and backs of legs. slight pins and needles in fingers and toes, slight bloating, small patchy rashes/dry skin that come and go. All of my symptoms are never really that bad, but they all just come and go and are a bit uncomfortable, sometimes they do get worse, but it doesn't stop me getting on with my daily life. Just want to get to the bottom of what could be wrong. When i eat breads, cakes & cereals (which i do a lot) i don't really notice that it makes my symptoms any worse, so can this be down to gluten? Any advice much appreciated. Regards J.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
