14 posts in this topic

I have bought several different kins of gluten-free lf sliced bread for sandwiches. None of them have been worth eating. I really miss having a good sandwich. Any suggestions on a good product to purchase? I do not have a bread machine.

Thank you for any suggestions.

I don't know if you can get this where you are, as it is made in Canada (Cambridge, Ontario). I found that the 'gourmet bread' by El Peto is excellent and tastes just like light rye bread. Even my (extremely picky) teenager eats it! Before our store started carrying it, neither one of us ate bread, because all the other breads are gross.

Thank you. I don't know if we get El Peto in North Carolina, but I'll look for it. I agree with you, all the other loaf breads have been gross.

Kinnickinnick makes some good breads. If you can't find them locally you can order them online also. The pizza crusts are good and I also like the donuts.

Thank you. I'll see if I can find that brand.

Question? Did you male son, five feet tall, grow anymore after diagnosis? My son if 5'6". I've wondered if it is from this, but he is not interested in getting tested.

I get Whole Foods' Gluten Free Bakehouse Sandwich Bread. I personally think it's good. I always toast it though. I don't' know if that's what you are trying to avoid. Without toasting it, it is very crumbly and almost dry. I've also tried Kinnikinnick's White Tapioca Bread and thought it was good. Good luck on your search!

I get The Gluten Free Pantry White Sandwich Bread Mix. It is really easy takes 5-10minutes to prepare then 30-40 minutes to rise (I set it the stove area) and 30 minutes in the oven (while it is rising I pre-heat the oven and make french fries haha). You let it cool on a rack and then slice and freeze (or you can refrigerator if you are going to eat it all that week).

I recommend toasting any gluten free bread gives it a little crunch and is tastes better this way.

I like the above mix but I am going to try to make some different ones soon from some cookbooks just for a change.

GOOD LUCK on finding a bread you like.

After 8 mo of trying, i've managed to make bread. Well, I cant eat it, but my son says its absolutely the best gluten-free bread he's had (he's been gluten free for about 3 months). I used the sandwhich bread recipe from gluten free baking classics, no bread machine, but i did have to buy a bread pan and a thermometer. He's been eating cinnamon toast . .. i cant imagine doing that with awful bread.

Unfortunatly my son was not diagnosed until after I was. Although he could have been a poster child for celiac it was never even considered. He was 20 at diagnosis and unfortunately his growth plates had fused. Take a good look at your son in shorts and a sleeveless Tshirt. If his long bones in his upper arms and thighs seem out of proportion do try to encourage him to be tested. If he is diagnosed in time most will regain some of the growth lost. I would give anything to have been able to get my son diagnosed in time for him to have gained even an inch. While your son at 5'6" is not abnormally small at the size my son is it has greatly damaged his selfesteem and it is extremely hard for him to find clothes. One other thing to pass on to your son- does he suffer from acne? If he does chances are that will be a thing of the past once he is gluten-free. I can't guarentee of course but that held true for all the members of my family.

The absolute best bread is from The Grainless Baker. I particularly love their mock rye bread for sandwiches and the cinnamon raisin bread for breakfast or snack.

You don't even need to toast it to eat it. It's great!

Thank you. My son is almost 22, so I figured his growth plates were closed too. And I've always thought he was proportionately well built. I just agonize about this a bit, because I know he wanted to be taller, and then when I learned about my gluten intolerance & it's relationship to growth, I wondered abou him. He is very lucky to be 5'6", and has adjusted to his height. I'm sure it's much harder for your son who is shorter. I do appreciate your input.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      You are misunderstanding the term hidden gluten.  A food item, of which probiotics are not covered under, can legitimately have trace amounts of gluten and still be gluten free.  There is no test that can test down to zero, regardless of what you hear.  Most testing generally tests down to 5ppm and the vast majority........  most likely 99% of Celiac's, will not have an autoimmune reaction to the food.  I am an extremely sensitive, diagnosed Celiac and I eat some processed foods, from reputable companies, and I am doing phenomenal, 11 years gluten-free.  Lots and lots of other people have this experience also. This is not an example of hidden gluten. There can be food ingredients that may be made from a gluten component that may not be as easy to distinguish but if you learn label reading as you should, with time you will be easily able to identify what is safe or something that is questionable. Can it be daunting at first to learn all this new information?  Absolutely, but if you can read, you can learn. There are also many probiotics which are completely safe.  I have been taking them for 30 years and have never been glutened once from them.  The news reports (for what they are worth now) say that there was gluten discovered in probiotics.  That does not mean all probiotics are suspect. You can find out from the Gluten Free Watchdog which ones failed and which ones did not, then make your choice to buy.  Supplements are not covered under the food laws but again.....read those labels and check with manufacturers!

    • Should I get tested for Celiac Disease?
      I wanted to come back and give an update. I decided to have my rash biopsied when I got home from vacation and the results thankfully came back positive for DH. What really prompted me to go ahead with that was how reliably the rash would worsen within mere hours of eating gluten. I figured it would be the easiest way for me to definitely know and since I could actually see the damage I was pretty confident by eating gluten until the appointment something would show up. Luckily my experiments of going multiple days here and there in the weeks prior to the test didn't effect the results. (Obviously that probably isn't recommended and I was taking a chance at inconclusive results by going ahead with it so I'm fortunate I got the positive results I expected.) The dermatologist wants me to see a GI doc but for now I'm holding off on doing that because of all the reasons I mentioned previously. It is my understanding that DH qualifies me for the tax write off for food and the small intestine biopsy would just be a technicality and see how much intestinal damage is present. I will follow up with my family doc soon to do blood work and check for any deficiencies. Since finding out I've done pretty well. I did discover gluten in my shampoo after wondering why my elbows had flared up when I hadn't eaten gluten that day. I had gluten unintentionally this weekend in some sushi and I'm recovering from that at the moment but it hasn't been too bad compared to how I've felt most days for the last year and a half while eating it. I did connect with a lady in my ED recovery group who has celiac and we have been talking about navigating gluten free in the context of recovery/remission from anorexia. I think part of me was scared I'd become afraid of food again but I think as long as my only rule is to replace gluten I will be fine.  Now my latest gluten discovery is in my home hair color. I was about to color my grays when I read the label and noticed one ingredient was wheat gluten. I guess I'll exchange that for something different. If I was getting it done at a salon I probably wouldn't worry because of the way they rinse it out with your head tipped back in the bowl but at home I think it's harder to keep the water from running into my mouth accidentally. If I hadn't had the shampoo incident I probably wouldn't be so cautious. I'm sure some people can relate to trying to get well and not wanting to make things worse again! I hope everyone here is doing well!
    • Can U A Bone Marrow Donor?
      Another reply to an old thread. We have a family friend whose son (aged 4) is struggling with leukemia. I went through the initial process (online screening question/answer form) of donating bone marrow, but was immediately rejected by the automatic screening due to my Celiac Disease. 
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      It can be difficult to refuse food from others but, with time, you can learn to not let it bother you.  Yeah, easier said than done, I know.  But your sense of humor came through in places in your post so use that to make "empowered no BS responses"!  
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      This is a common sense answer!  I used to eat Godiva years ago and was dismayed they had no interest in appealing to anyone with a food allergy/intolerance.  That's OK......Ghirardelli chocolates are very good about divulging what they do and most of their chocolates are gluten-free.  Again, you have to understand label reading and investigate further, if need be.  Turns out, I think their chocolates are just as good, if not better.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
