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???

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.

Here is the Food for Life website's page on their gluten-free products. Ezekiel Bread is NOT one of their gluten-free breads.

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.
