Good Tasting gluten-free Bread For Sandwiches?
0

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.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I suspect I am dealing with vitamin deficiency, but I'm afraid that if I go to a specialist they're going to think I have MS. As a person with pretty bad health anxiety, I can't bring myself to make the appointments I know I should make. I presented to my GP about 9 months ago with fatigue and a bizarre tingly feeling in my lower left leg. I was also suffering digestive distress, but I've lived with that off and on my whole life, so that was the least of my worries. My blood tests showed that my B12 level was 280. They didn't turn up any other issues, but then again she did not order any other vitamin level tests, only thyroid and routine bloodwork. She called my B12 level "on the low end of normal" and put me on oral supplements. When we retested 6 weeks later, it was 1100 and she told me to drop it back because that was too high and too much B12 can cause health issues, too. I'm confused by that because I've read that it isn't possible to take too much. I started a new career in a new town, and simultaneously began to feel better. The fatigue went away first, followed by the tingling and other stuff. Still plagued by both extremes of digestive distress. Maybe I should also mention that I was diagnosed with GERD at age 29 and have been on PPIs for 10 years. At that time, nobody ever mentioned investigating my GERD at such a young age, just put me on the pills and said stay on them. A gastroenterologist concurred after a very brief office visit. Well, I can be bad about taking my medicines, so I got off the B12. I figured maybe my earlier issues were stress-related. Now my symptoms are back, but worse. I have tingling and some aching in the leg. I have a sensation in one spot on my upper arms like the skin is burning, but no rash or redness. I have the C extreme of digestive problem, only alleviated by taking lots of magnesium citrate capsules. Sometimes I feel easily chilled, like waves of goosebumps. I am working to get off the PPIs in case they are inhibiting my absorption of vitamins. My mom has had really bad IBS all her life, plus eczema, headaches, etc. I'm back on the B12 for about 5 days but have experienced no relief yet, however I do remember that it took about 2 months to feel better the last time. Getting ready to move, on top of being really scared about these health issues, is making me crazy. I'm only 40 years old!!! Here are my questions: 1. Do I go back to the GP and ask her to order a celiac blood test? I know NOT to go off gluten until I am tested. 2. Do I ask for a referral to a neurologist or gastroenterologist instead? 3. Do  I wait until my mom's gastro appointment next month, when she plans to ask for a celiac blood test? See if hers is positive? 4. Do I keep driving myself insane with the worry that I have a degenerative illness? Can anybody identify with any of this at all? 
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      I would hope they would check for the other reasons for the endoscopy results.  A GI might not check for all of those so you may need to check with your regular doctor to start that process.

      The second link I gave you was to a series of online video courses, you can try those for free to see if its something you think might help. There are also a lot of worksheets you can download, the first link had some I think but there are plenty of others out there if you search online.  Finally I had another look and found this: http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/step1.htm  Which looks like a decent 7 step program Obviously its not as good as a dedicated session with a CBT counsellor, but the above may give you some tools you can use, especially when your thoughts are spiralling into a destructive circle. You could also search to see if there's any group sessions in Melbourne, that's how the NHS delivers it, they would be cheaper and there's really no need for one on one CBT, because it's more about delivering knowledge of the toolset. I approached it very sceptically but found it of some use, although at the time I was still under the gluten influence so it never tackled the root problem. The game changing aspect of discovering this is that you now know why the psychologist sessions didn't hit the mark, how could they when the root of your depression was your illness? My sessions now are far better and more enjoyable than when I was under a gluten fog.  Aside from all this the other advice holds, eat well, exercise, get sunlight every day and the longer you're on the diet the better you should get.  Oh and at least NI put up a hell of a fight in the Euros, hope you got to see that down under!

      How long did this last ? 😳

      Funny enough that a naturopath at a mind & body convention that I attended last week said I was also deficient in selenium. You put your finger into a small holder (Similar to having your heart rate checked) she said I'm deficient in b vitiams, selenium vitiam d, she also said Somthing about having a lot of mercury in my body, to be honest it all went over my head as yet another thing to deal with so I haven't looked much further into it as it was all just to much, I have a print out of the results that she gave me tho, I'm going to look into it. Thank you for taking your time to reply to this thread

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
