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 already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
