Ezekiel Bread

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone!!!!!

Ezekiel bread..........the 2 most confusing words ever to someone with celiac. some people say its gluten free.....others not!!!!!! i personally dont know if i have celiac or gluten sensitivity b/c the docter gave us a hard time......for the test you have to have gluten in ur system.......but after we found out gluten made us sick.......we didnt want to eat it for the test and get sick..........so my mom didnt do the test but its obvious she has celiac.......when me and my sisters went to get tested.......the docters refused to test us because my mom didnt have a firm enough diagnosis.......but we think me and 1 of my sisters has the true celiac because gluten sensitivity is not hereditary but celiac is.....and since my mom has it....well you get the picture!

anyway back to ezekiel bread......i eat it....but when my sister ate it it gave her a rash....and once my mom got a wheat grass drink but it was sprouted wheat just like ezekiel bread so she thought she could handle it...she couldnt..........why can i have ezekiel bread and my family cant???

:huh:

Ummm....Gluten sensitivity is hereditary. There are other genes different from Celiac. But our parents most certainly pass them on to us.

We all respond to gluten differently. Some Celiacs have NO SYMPTOMS at all, but are damaging their bodies nonetheless.

If you have a gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, you should not eat ezekiel bread, it has gluten.

I have been eating Ezekial Bread for many years, being mildly allergic to wheat and gluten, and was happy to see that I could eat a "normal" bread without gastric symptoms. The large alternative medical center where I work has been recommending it for as many years as it has been in existence, because of the fact that SOME patients who are MILDLY wheat and gluten sensitive might be able to get away with eating a low sugar, flourless, SPROUTED grain bread without any deleterious effects. However, way back when, I do not believe that "organic wheat gluten" was in the list of ingredients, as it is today. Also, the bread seems to toast darker on the same setting as it used to, and seems to have a much more airy consistency. I don't think anyone at the center noticed the addition of the wheat gluten - I only did so this morning, while planning a healthier diet for myself. I will certainly be bringing this to the practitioners' attention, since the patients who were able to tolerate it before, might not be able to do so now, and may have been wondering why they have been feeling poorly. It is true that Food for Life Breads do have true wheat-free and gluten-free alternatives. However, I do hope that they will consider removing the added "organic wheat gluten" from their recipe, so that many thousands of folks can go back to using it again.

As many have said before, wheat, sprouted or not, contains gluten. Sprouted wheat is not safe for celiac patients. Apparently there is some kind of enzymatic process that reduces the amount of gluten, but the gluten is still there. The benefit of ezekiel bread is that it is more nutrient rich; however, this benefit won't do any of us with celiac disease any good.

    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
