Baking Gluten And Rice Free?
0

15 posts in this topic

I am looking for recipes that are gluten, rice, soy, and millet free. Is this even possible to bake this way? Everything I see has rice flour in it.

I'm not exactly wanting to use bean flours either, so I know that really cuts down most options.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated :)

eww I don't like how the bean flours taste, my guess would be tapioca starch or potato flour? maybe quinoa flour? can you have oats?

Julie,

What about almond flour? I can't remember if you can do almonds....I've been thinking of dabbling with this now that I'm off grains.

Thanks Collette, I guess I am going to have to experiment with some different things. I can do potato, corn, amaranth, quinoa, and buckwheat.

Patti, nope almonds are now out for me too :( . I can do pretty much every other nut other than almonds and cashews, but thanks so much for the suggestion.

I just remembered there was a thread on baking with coconut flour, I'll have to go searching for that. Coconut is on my safe list (I wish it was on yours :()

I don't use rice flour (I'm allergic to rice), and it isn't nutritious anyway. I use quinoa, amaranth, sorghum primarily. Buckwheat is also a good choice but I am also allergic to that.

Hi lorka, so when you bake do you use these other flours one for one in place of rice and other gluten-free flours in recipes?

I have the book from Carol Fenster: Gluten Free Quick and Easy. Her gluten-free flour mix is 1 1/2 cups sorghum flour, 1 1/2 cups potato starch, 1 cup tapioca flour. I really like sorghum and her recipes I have tried so far are my favorites. Waffles, scones and double chocolate cookies. I am slowly changing from rice flour mix to sorghum mix b/c its healthier and not grainy. Also I am tossing in 1/4 cup of coconut flour for some of the gluten-free flour mix b/c its so healthy (I read somewhere to do that).

One more thing. Go to the thread on May 24th called "In place of eggs". There are some tips about egg replacement. It could be on page 8 or 9.

Julie--

I was just looking at my copy of "Cooking Free" by Carol Fenster, and she says that sorghum flour can comprise up to 50% of a flour blend. Maybe then you could play around with adding some cornstarch, potato starch and/or another flour you are ok with like buckwheat or the coconut. :)

Many of the "experts" believe that millet and sorghum are related, so it would be interesting if you are able to have sorghum. It really does work well for breads too, so I hope you can.

I think ivory teff flour works well for breads, though I haven't tried it as the main ingredient. Have you tried that one?

Anyway, here's a really nice selection of flours in which you might find some you haven't yet explored: http://www.barryfarm.com/flours.htm

Great tips purple and Patti, thank you :)

I can't do sorghum but I can do tapioca, I just looked and it's on my safe list :D

Sounds like I can experiment with a potato starch and tapioca blend and then add in another flour from my safe grains.

You guys are the best!

Hi RiceGuy, thanks for the info.

I had an allergy test done so I can only eat from a list of my safe foods for several months. I can start experimenting down the line with different things, so I'll keep this link in mind when that time comes.

That's interesting, Rice Guy--I didn't know they were related. Are they actually grains? I don't usually do well with grains, but I never seemed to have problems with the sorghum in the Enjoy Life products....I've never tried millet.

Sounds like I can experiment with a potato starch and tapioca blend and then add in another flour from my safe grains.

Sounds like a good plan! I'll be interested to hear what you come up with. :) I think the key is to have a good mixture of at least 3 different flours/starches to avoid grittiness.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
