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.

They don't have any in California :( :( :(

Sounds amazing though.

Just out of curiosity..what are the ingredients like? Are they dairy free too?

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.

    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!

    • So my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
    • when they first came out, I read the ingredients on them, and they don't seem to contain malt.  But the company, at that time specifically posted on the website that they  are not gluten-free.  So I don't drink them.
