What Can I Make For Bread?

7 posts in this topic

I'm at a loss. My son just got his Lame Advertisement test results back and it's not gluten that he's reacting to, but gliadin. He's got a moderate intolerance to wheat, rice, corn, baker's yeast (among others), and mild intolerance to rice, oats.

I can use quinoa flour, I think (though I have read on some sites, that it contains gliadin), and I can use buckwheat flour (at least until the second round of Lame Advertisement tests come back). I've used blends with rice flour before, but without yeast, I can probably only make biscuits, muffins, and maybe some Irish soda bread. Oh and severe dairy intolerance, and also eggs. ARGH.

He had pretty bad withdrawal for 3 days, from the wheat. He sounded like an addict, begging for one more bite of bread. It was horrible (he's 8). So I'm trying to figure out a dumpling recipe or biscuit or something bread-like. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

Removing rice from the equation makes things a bit more challenging, but it is still doable. There are many other gluten-free flours besides quinoa (which does not contain gliadin BTW) and buckwheat. Can your son tolerate any of these?

Tapioca starch/flour

Coconut flour

Teff Flour

Amaranth Flour

Sorghum (closely related to corn, so that one might be out)

Bean flours

Almond meal

Arrowroot

Millet flour

Potato starch

This may seem like a long list, but mixes of different flours generally perform better than a single type. I'm confident we can come up with a flour blend that will help you create a bread like substance for your son.

I look forward to your reply.

AFAIK, sorghum has no relation to corn. I have read that sorghum and millet are considered to be related by many but not all scientists who study such things (botanists?).

I gave up rice flour in favor of sorghum and millet, because rice flour is gritty. In fact, rice flour is the only flour I find gritty.

As for reacting to gliadin and not gluten, that sounds like an oddly mangled explanation, as if the doctor doesn't quite know what he/she is talking about. Without the gliadin protein, gluten wouldn't exist. For all practical purposes regarding gluten intolerance, the two are the same, though technically not. Recently I read that gluten forms when two proteins in the wheat combine, as it gets wet.

Anyway, I don't use yeast in my breads, nor dairy or egg, and I think they turn out good. But I like a dense hearty bread, not "white bread". I think you should be able to replace the rice flour in a given recipe with sorghum or millet, and it should turn out fine. Same with replacing the yeast with baking powder.

You could find a recipe to suit your needs for waffles. There should be replacements for all the ingredients. Like flax, chia seeds, egg substitute, applesauce, coconut milk, soy milk, sorghum flour, potato starch, etc. Then, I haven't tried it yet but, you can use them like bread. I don't know how good they would be cold... flippy I suppose, but toast them first. I am keeping my eyes and ears open for the different ways. Ex: reheat waffles in the toaster and put fruit filling or fruit on top or make a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. Grilled tuna, salmon, etc. sandwiches. Put ham, cinnamon/vanilla or blueberries in the batter. Put peanut butter/banana on top or fresh strawberries with some strawberry jam. Pizza toppings, spaghetti sauce and meatball open face sandwiches...whatever you can think of that is ok for your son. Freeze a batch ahead of time too. Label the "flavored" waffles. My daughter tried the homemade apple pie filling and said to make more. Have fun with it and also let your son decide what toppings and show him how to make the sandwiches if he is young. It would help him look forward to it instead of being upset. You can also freeze small containers of toppings for really fast sandwiches. Label them so your son can choose which one sounds good. Use the ideas on other bread replacements. I just did a quick search for gluten free dairy free waffles and found this site: glutenagogo.blogspot.com. It tells about flax and chia seeds and has a recipe for waffles. Then I found this site: www.care2.com/greenliving/flaxseed-egg-substitute.html. It tells how to use flax for eggs. Flax is super healthy.

I already use flax + water to replace eggs. From what I've researched, gliadin is in wheat, rye, oats, barley, kamut, spelt, amaranth, malt, and quinoa. Since gliadin is part of gluten, I don't understand how it can be part of more grains than gluten, but he was tested for gliadin and gluten, and he didn't react to gluten, but he did to gliadin.

He also can't have apples or strawberries. I have coconut flour, buckwheat flour, quinoa flour (though not sure if I can use it). I think I have some sorghum too. I'm waiting on his other tests to find out if he can have almonds. He also can't have peas. I'm waiting to hear about other legumes, to see if I can use some of the bean flours.

The idea to make sandwiches using waffles is a good one. The meatball sandwich is do-able, and hamburgers. I wish I could get him to eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches, since that's a good protein meal (he's also off turkey, chicken, lamb, pork, and tuna - so his proteins are limited).

I guess I'll just experiment with waffle recipes for now and see what I can come up with. Maybe I can even figure out a dumpling recipe with mix-and-match flours.

Thanks.

Since gliadin is part of gluten, I don't understand how it can be part of more grains than gluten, but he was tested for gliadin and gluten, and he didn't react to gluten, but he did to gliadin.

Gluten is a general term for protein storage in cereal grains. Many grains contain gluten (corn, for example), but it is not in the form of gliadin so it does not cause celiacs trouble. Gliadin is the name for the protein present in wheat and several other cereals within the grass genus Triticum (wheat, barley, rye, spelt, einkorn, emmer, durum and others). Gliadin is not present in oats, amaranth or quinoa. Amaranth, oats and quinoa are in totally different classes of plants, and contain different proteins. Malt is made from barley (most of the time). Oats containt the protein avenin, not gliadin, but are often contaminated with gluten grains. The only oats that are guaranteed to be free of gluten and/or gliadin contamination are grown in dedicated fields.

Hope this helps and din't make things more confusing. :)

Try this mix:

It's free of all the ingredients you listed, and it's remarkably good. (My non-gluten-free kids even try to steal bites of the toast I make with it.) It does dry out fairly quickly, so I usually slice it and freeze it as soon as it cools.

      Thank  you Flowerqueen and Cristiana for your replies. I'm actually feeling much better today. I got my appetite back yesterday lunchtime (a few hours after I typed the original post) and managed to keep in/hold down some chicken and lettuce!!! I also had a "fat" coffee (as I call it) before work with MCT Oil and butter (your probably going "yuk" right now but it's really nice...really haha) and started feeling a bit better after that. The nausea went away almost immediately after that although just the thought of having all that fat nearly made me sick but I just wanted to get back to normal asap. I usually have a lot of fat in my diet anyway which is normal for me so the coffee choice isn't unusual. Plus it was also the third day which was when I started feeling better after the first time. I didn't eat til lunchtime and I was good and hungry by then so I knew I was coming out of it. That nausea and trembling feeling is something I don't want ever again. I think after the workout and tearing down muscle tissue (which is a form of stress) and then not being able to hold the nutrients in for repair affected my nervous system. My theory only but to me it makes sense. Although Vitargo also comes in flavors I always get the Natural / Unflavored one so the barley is the only ingredient. As for there being something wrong with that particular batch, well, you be on to something there. Also I'm not knocking the product because as I said, I have used it before and it did exactly what it was supposed to do. But, I will never have it again. Cristiana, my last blood test revealed I had slight anaemia which really surprised me with the amount of red meat I've eaten during my life and the anxiety thing is also new as I'm usually a happy, positive person. Life is good but after this recent reaction I think it is an indirect cause of the glutening. I'm also surprised at how sensitive I've become to it and how quickly. Also what is DX? I also follow a FODMAP eating plan (I can give you more info if you haven't heard of it) which also eliminates certain foods. It's a plan directed mostly at IBS but is well worth looking into if you are suffering any gut health, digestion issues or any ailment you may have which you can't get to the bottom of. Broccoli was one of the foods which I have cut back on and I've eaten HUGE amounts of broccoli so it is a superfood for some but apparently not for others. (I even think I read somewhere it has MSG naturally in it) It's hard to find any bad articles on broccoli so this also really surprised me. It also answered a few other questions I had. Many, many thanks again to you both for your replies. It actually settled me just reading them. I'm glad I found these forums so I don't think i'll be a stranger around here for long.   Richard

      Okay, I get that you are not going to follow the advice from some stranger on the internet, but please read the links that I gave you.  Your doctor is not following the standard level of care.  I am dead serious.  I have Kaiser.  My own GP doesn't have a clue about celiac disease, but my Kaiser GI does.  Please, I urge you to get properly diagnosed.  All celiac testing requires you to be on a gluten diet.  If you go gluten free even for two weeks (it will take time to get the referral and appointment), it will mess up the tests.  Your GI will put you back on a gluten diet (called a gluten challenge) for 8 to 12 weeks.    Chances are (almost 100%) you will feel more miserable!  That will just delay your diagnosis.   Symptoms not bad you say?  I had pretty severe anemia, but no tummy issues.  Two months after my diagnosis, I fractured my back DOING NOTHING!  Yep, I have osteoporosis from undiagnosed celiac disease and I am an athlete!   Please take this seriously!    
    • Silent Celiac or Non-digestive symptoms
      Oh, you might learn how to tell if you had been glutened.  I just had anemia as my main symptom.  I did not have any tummy issues at all.  I was in shock when my doctor even suggested testing me for celiac disease!   Glutenings can vary as we are all different.  For some it is just a few days, others a few weeks and others months (that would be me).  My last official glutening as supported by follow-up antibody testing lasted for three months.  Guess what?  I had vomiting, abdominal pain, the works!  Funny how celiac disease can change and evolve over time.   Welcome to the forum!  Have some patience and learn all that you can.  The good news is that you can feel better and no medications are required!  
    • Confused
      Thank you for the information. I've been not sure if I should eat gluten or not right now. Dr. said I should watch what I eat when I emailed him the question. My symptoms aren't very bad (I understand that doesn't matter for celiac disease), so I can definitley tolerate the food. But I have been starving myself the last few days due to not knowing what the heck is going on. Thanks again.
    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      If you did actually have celiac disease, it can take weeks, months and years to recover from some of your symptoms, especially neurological ones.   Best to get screened for celiac disease.  It's a simple blood test.  Any medical doctor can do it.  But a GI doctor is needed for a diagnosis, since an endoscopy is part of the diagnostic procedure.  BUT you have to be consuming gluten to get accurate results! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/ Keep on researching.  I wish you well!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
