Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Bread
0

19 posts in this topic

OK - I can't be the first to ask this question...but I'm nervous. I was told that my uncle, who has had Celiac for a long time now - eats Ezekiel's Sprouted Grain bread. I was told it's because its the sprouted grain and not the flour..??? I didn't understand why we can, but I was so excited that I just got some and had the best tuna sandwich in a while. I've only been gluten free for only a few weeks now, but I think I have a stomache ache already. Maybe it's just in my head.

Is this bread ok? I guess I'll know soon... :unsure:

I would not touch the stuff! Here is what the company says about gluten-free status

Are Food for Life sprouted breads "gluten free?"

Any product that contains wheat (including semolina, durum, spelt, triticale, and kamut) rye, barley, or oats cannot be considered Gluten-Free. What is important is the sprouting process, through enzymatic activity, changes gluten to a more digestible or tolerable state. Many individuals with mild gluten sensitivities use sprouted products with no adverse side affects or allergic reactions. However each person

Unfortunately, it's not gluten-free. It's chock full of gluten grains. Food for life does make a few gluten-free products. They also make a few wheat-free products that contain gluten so you have to check their labels carefully.

Here's a list of their gluten-free products: https://www.foodforlife.com/procart_catalog...D=1&do=list

Please don't eat the Ezekiel Bread. It may be fine for people who simply have trouble digesting gluten, but celiac disease is not an inability to digest but an autoimmune response to gluten. I've never seen any research that would suggest that the sprouting process renders the gluten unrecognizable to a celiac's immune system.

Thank you for posting this because I have been told many times by health food store workers that this bread is safe for celiacs. I always tried to set them straight, but sometimes they were exptremely insistent and swore that they know a so and so who is celiac can eat it. No way!

This bread is dangerous because they tend to put it right in there with the gluten-free breads.

Seriously folks-- leave it on the shelf and walk away.

Oh David - I already saw that website. Do you really think there's human dung in their bread? Give me a break... I'm very new at this (3 weeks this Wednesday) and was just trying to figure it all out. I'm testing the waters, so to speak, because there are a few members of my family with celiac and alot of allergies and food intolerances also. I have quite a bit of the symptoms, probably misdiagnosed which seems common - so I thought I would go gluten free to see if I feel better.

So far, everybody seemed to want to give advice and happy share their discoveries. I didn't expect to get mocked (I couldn't think of a username...). I definately don't need to be ridiculed in a forum. This will be my last entry.

Hi SB,

I tend to think the Ezekial bread is not safe for us. There may be something to what you were told about the proteins being (partly) digested during the sprouting process. The way I read it, enzymes in the grain seed digest the proteins and provide food for the growing plant during germination. The catch to that is, how to tell if they have digested all 100% of the protein and rendered it harmless. I suppose if they knew the exact age in hours when a typical seedling might use up all the proteins, they might be able to time the harvesting of the sprouts. Then they would have to sort through all the sprouts and get rid of any non-sprouted seeds, or ones that didn't meet the typical sprout and grow curve. Seems to me there are a lot of chances for things to go wrong in that process.

Good for you giving the gluten-free diet a try! It is quite a learning experience eh? Most grocery stores where I shop have the Exekial bread right next to the gluten-free bread. It is almost like the stores consider it gluten-free, but it is not advertised by the company to be gluten-free. I have heard other people say that health food stores told them it was gluten-free. It really pays to check everything yourself, like you are doing here!

Oh, I am pretty sure IrishDaveyboy was just joking. Certainly that web site is way off the mark. The site does say it is meant to be satire.

Hi, I certainly wasn't mocking or ridiculing anyone!

.

Ezekiel 4:9 is made from grains that celiacs cannot tolerate, Barley, Spelt, Wheat.

.

I don't care if they are Organic, Sprouted, Washed, De-hulled etc

the fact is it doesn't change the grain.

.

I did say the piece was tongue in cheek, ie. Satire.

.

.

Here is an extract:

.

I got to sample a taste of Ezekiel 4:12 bread before its official release. The weird thing is that the added ingredient makes it tastes wonderful*. (notice the star, it means there's a footnote associated with the entry)

.

In fact, the flavor is so fantastic that I highly recommend it to any religious person. So while you Christians are waiting for Ezekiel 4:12 bread to come to your grocery store, why wait? Buy a loaf of Ezekiel 4:9 bread and crap on it before you put it in the toaster oven. And make sure that you poop on it in full sight of all your family members and friends. It's not only organic and live, but it's in the Bible!

Moreover, it's not like eating poop is unprecedented in the Bible. If you have a King James Bible, read II Kings 18:27 or Isaiah 36:12 where it talks about people eating their own poop and drinking their own piss. So you don't even need the bread part, and it's completely gluten free!

* (notice the star, this is the footnote)

.

Actually I never tasted Ezekiel 4:12 bread because it doesn't exist (although Ezekiel 4:9 bread does). No doubt it would taste abominable. This is satire but, no doubt, there will be some gullible Christians that will believe anything. They don't read footnotes do they?

.

.

I think the whole idea was to show that people are too ready to believe everything

they are told or they read.

.

I'm sorry if you thought the post was mocking or ridiculing you, that certainly wasn't the intention.

.

But please don't accept the word of one person as being Gospel Truth or even those of family

who may have been misled opriginally, we all proceede through Knowledge and knowledge is aquired by asking.

.

I think the response from everyone on this thread was

AVOID THE BREAD,

whether done in a straight forward or Satirical manner.

.

Best Regards,

David

I am certain that Irish Dave Boy was joking and he was very clear about the satirical nature of his post. We all need some humor to get by with our daily struggles.

One of my local grocery stores puts all the gluten-free cereals right next to the 'organic' health food gluteny ones. They really don't care. Same with flours...the gluten-free flours are on the same shelf with the organic whole wheat health-nut expensive flours. For some reason that manager or that district seems to think that gluten-free is just a lifestyle choice, not a serious health problem. Ah that would be nice, eh? :rolleyes: At least I know where to find my Gorilla Crunch.

OK - I'm over it... Maybe I should change my username to "too sensitive". Can I blame the gluten in the Ezekiel bread? That's it - I was glutened! Well, I'm learning - the bread didn't create a digestive problem, but now I realize that just because it didn't cause me to run to the bathroom, doesn't mean it didn't do damage to my body in some way.

I'm throwing away the bread! Sorry I was so sensitive... :(

So glad you came back!

I'm pretty touchy when I've been glutened. You're forgiven. :D

I feel totally duped! I should have come here first to read. I've been trying to get my hands on all of the information I can about this subject. I first read about sprouted grains in a book called Original Fast Foods. The I emailed the author who suggested that I could eat sprouted grains and be okay. I guess I was hoping against hope that after 3 years somehow I could in someway begin to eat normallay again. I should have known better but such is the hope of a person with Celiac.

I ate this bread this morning and have a small stomache. I guess it will have to go to those in my family that can eat it.

Thanks for the information! I hope others read this before they partake of this bread!!

Welcome to the board. Are you having trouble finding gluten free replacements for some stuff? If you are we may have some suggestions to make things easier. So ask any questions you need to.

    • Nothing left to eat
      I usually have sautéed yellow peppers, kale (or spinach) mushrooms as a base.  Then throw in some leftovers like baked sweet potato, or chicken chunks, add an egg and call it a breakfast!
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Lay's regular chips are gluten free.  You might have reacted to the super greasy chips or one of the other ingredients in them. 
    • No gluten allergy because I don't have classic symptoms of celiac
      I've been strictly gluten free for four years. Three years I went off other grains such as rice which tested very high . I have one of the genes. My mother has Celiac and I had an endoscopy for reflux and the took biopsies and Doctor said " You Do Not Have Celiac" . This is the office that said just eat a cracker before the endoscopy and it will show up if you have it. I did not eat that one cracker LOL  I don't have "typical" celiac symptoms and have tested positive for multiple food sensitivities. Having those tests done helped enormously. One   one accidental exposure last fall which gave me my first case of Dermatitis Herpetiformis which left scars )  does indicate Celiac . I'm really rattled because endoscopy for reflux said I have reflux and chronic gastritis ( and I did not know that already?) I've done so much research I have books ! and watched my mother suffer so much and this just flies in my face. So you need to trust your gut most of all( or your symptoms)  I honestly did not expect him to find anything at all but to be told with absolute certainty I do not have celiac and don't need to worry  feels nutty to me .   Next time I get the rash( I hope I don't) I will get a biopsy . 
      "Dermatitis herpetiformis, also known as DH and Duhring’s disease, is a skin manifestation of celiac disease. Extremely itchy bumps or blisters appear on both sides of the body, most often on the forearms near the elbows, as well as on knees and buttocks"
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hey, I am a member of that forum (not very active though).  But that's exactly how I eat.  They base their diet on this site: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ A year after my celiac disease diagnosis, my GP tells me that I am prediabetic via an email.  Instructs me to improve my diet and exercise more.  What?  I exercise more that most my age.  I run, swim, bike and teach a few exercise classes.  Change my diet?  I am gluten free.  I can not give up my gluten-free goodies!  It was asking for too much.  But I did know about celiac disease and the connection to Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 runs in my family.  So I found Jenny's site.  It made sense and I continued to research more.  Bought a Walmart meter, started testing my foods and found that "snap" I had huge spikes!  Kept meticulous data for a month and went back to my doctor.  He agreed.  I am insulin resistant and the writing's on the wall.  How to stop or slow the progression?  A low carb high fat diet.  Within three days, my blood sugar readings were normal.  Keep tracking and went back to my doctor who was amazed.  He told me to keep doing what I had been doing -- and it's been 2-1/2 years! Here's a recent study from the University of Alabama: https://www.uab.edu/news/innovation/item/4997-low-carb-diet-recommended-for-diabetics Sometimes you just have to take things into your own hands.  If I had just cut down on sugar, I 'd be on drugs and insulin and struggling to keep my feet from being amputated.  That's an exaggeration (not really), but really who cares if my foot gets chopped off?  My doctor?  He's nice, but pretty busy.  No, it's all on me!   Guess what?  I am happy on my diet.  I was addicted to sugar.  What's the biggest thing to change in our diet over the last 100 years?  Sugar.  It's in everything!  California just released a study stating over 50% of all Californians are prediabetic or have diabetes and most don't even know they have it (hummm....sounds like celiac disease).   http://newsroom.ucla.edu/releases/majority-of-california-adults-have-prediabetes-or-diabetes Enough of my soapbox talk......I've got to get some stuff done!

      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.
