Ok, Need Some Suggestions Re Bread!
0

5 posts in this topic

When I first started on this I thought I'd just aviod all bread-type products because it would be healthier anyway...but after about 6 weeks of that I can't stand it! I must have bread and an occational dessert! I used to bake all the time, so I figured I'd just mess around until I came up with some good recipes....Not So Easy! I did have success with gluten-free carrot cake, brownies, and pancakes. However yeast breads really don't work AT ALL! I tried Pizza crust and it was like eating tomato sauce and cheese on masionite. Yum :blink: My son (bless his little heart) claimed it was the best pizza he'd ever eaten but I attribute that to the fact that it's the *only* pizza he's eaten in over a month...plus I think he felt sorry for me. Anyway, we can't afford to buy a lot of gluten-free products (wow, they're so pricey!) so if we want baked goods I need to figure this out. Where can I go for recipes? How on earth do you get rice bread to rise? Mine actually *shrank* as it baked. I used a mixture of 1/3 brown rice, 1/3 white rice and 1/3 potato flour and tried to make the pizza as per usual other than that. Any quick tips for a novice?

Thanks in advance!

There are several good posts going right now, some with good recipes. Take your time and check out the information and mistakes that others have made. If you can, get a good cookbook. Bette Hagman is my favorite. I am placing the post address to a current discussion for you. Like I said, there are several. Look under the cooking and breads category. I can't remember right off the bat what we call it.

Oh yes, and be sure you check under the posts on bread machines. I got one really great recipe there. The recipe for that and some cinnamon rolls are at the link I added in the last message.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, my first try was a total disaster also. I have since learned that with gluten free bread, it is imperative that you use quick rise yeast. Also, apparently the yeast must be room temperature.

If you are looking for some good recipes, there is a lady named Mireille over in the delphiforums that has a vast array of recipes posted there. She owns a gluten-free restaurant, or something like that.....

Go here:

www.delphiforums.com

then on the left hand side, click on Health & Wellness. The first forum to come up is the celiac forum. It is an excellent resource for recipes.... and she posts alot to help all of us gluten-free baking challenged out!!!

Have a great day!

    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
    • I have confirmed that Member's Mark Ibuprofen are gluten free in three ways: the list of ingredients matches the list of gluten-free excepients from the Gluten Intolerance Group's list, I called the customer service number on the bottle (they confirmed it is gluten-free), and I found another website in which a dr claims it is gluten-free.
