Can You Bake With No Starches? Or Sub?
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi.

I was just wondering if anyone knew or had pointers on baking without starches?

I can't have tapioca starch/flour (similar side effects like gluten) and arrowroot seem to not agree with me.

I cut out Nightshades due to reactions so that eliminated Potato Starch

Yellow Corn bothers me and Corn in general makes me bloat and too much = problems (sorry TMI).

Originally I was doing Potato Starch and Corn Starch but now with eliminating Potatoes I am just left with Corn Starch.

I made some waffles the other weekend and tested out subbing all the starches with corn and that was a no no it tasted normal BUT... did not react very well to it.

What do people do that cannot have or do starches? Do you just sub with more flour?

Any input is greatly appreciated

Thank you!!

Yes, check out the almond flour recipes. Also, there are other grains out there that may work for you if you can handle them... buckwheat, teff and others. Carol Fenster has a bunch of flourless cake recipes too; try googling that and see what you come up with!

Good luck!

You can find sweet potato starch in asian food stores. From what i've read, they are not part of the nightshade family. I've not used it in my cooking but it's worth a try.

Can you no have rice flour either? There are three different kinds: white, brown and sweet (or glutinous, as it is sometimes rather anomalously known).

Thank you for the posts about the book. The book looks really neat and the price was good compared to other books.

I bought teff the other week but got the whole grain by accident so have to grind it to flour and try it. Never tried Buckwheat will have to try that soon.

love that site and this site: http://glutenfreeeasily.com/

WOW the pizza looks really good and very easy to make. I am printing off the recipe to try very soon. Thank you so much! I saved the site to look through more later.

My main flours I have are Sourghum, White Rice Flour and Brown Rice Flour. I haven't tried the Sweet Rice Flour yet just because I live in a smaller town and cannot find it anywhere and haven't driven to Las Vegas yet to get it at Whole Foods (hopefully they have it). I was just in CA visiting family and looked at Henry's for it but nope.

Sweet Potato Starch... very interesting. I will have to keep an eye out for it. I know we do not have any stores like that near me but will look for it. Thanks

Thanks again for the posts. I will take a look at the SCD thread on here.

I don't recall seeing it at Whole Foods. You can always find it in an Asian market.

By the way, I really like buckwheat flour and use it quite a bit because I am limited in my flours too. I tried putting some Teff flour in pancakes over the weekend and it was very sandy/heavy and soaked up all the liquid which I had to keep adding and adding.... I will need more experience with that--maybe try some of Carol Fenster's recipes.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Yep, get tested for celiac.  You have plenty of digestive symptoms to indicate it.

      Hi Richie, It definitely sounds like you got glutened.  Over here in the USA they can't label foods gluten-free if they are made from gluten ingredients, period.  So your barley drink would not be labeled gluten-free here.  A while back I read something about the testing for gluten in foods not being as accurate for detecting barley hordein as it is for wheat gliaden.  So the gluten-free testing (if they do any) that your drink maker does may not be reliable. Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition.  So the immune system starts reacting when it detects gluten and damages the gut lining.  An immune reaction is not like a food poisoning event, where most of the damage is only while the food is actually in your system and then ends.  An immune reaction can continue for weeks to months.  The immune system is really quite serious about protecting our bodies.  And since it is designed to detect and attack micro-organisms it reacts to tiny amounts of gluten. Wheat, barley, and rye are the main gluten grains that affect celiacs.  But some celiacs also react to oat gluten.

      Hi Richie,  Glad you are feeling better. I wondered have you been officially diagnosed with coeliac disease? Just wondering as you say you are anaemic, that is one of the symptoms of coeliac disease, along with other general malnutrition. You don't need to eat meat for iron though, you can get it from non-heme foods, like spinach or parsley. Just be careful with the drink with barley, it may be that you only start to have symptoms if you consume a lot of it, but if you have coeliac disease the damage is still been done to your gut regardless of whether you have symptoms or not, which will ultimately lead to malnutrition as well as other things.

      I think, if all this is caused by glutening, it could be that it takes a while to work its way out of your system. I should explain about what I said about organic broccoli.   I don't have a problem with organic food,  in fact, I buy organic milk and carrots all the time, but I don't want to try organic broccoli in case it is the broccoli that is the problem, not the insecticide.    I meant to ask, are you a coeliac or is it non-coeliac gluten intolerance that you have?   I wonder what sort of support you get in Australia for these conditions once diagnosed?   Here in the UK I think the understanding is that if new gastro symptoms have lasted for more than six weeks it needs to be investigated.   I have found this very helpful advice because I do get odd twinges of pain and sometimes changes in bowel movements (sorry if tmi) but they rarely last more than a couple of weeks.   If they do persist I mention it to my gastroenteroligist and he follows it up.  I recently had a sigmoidoscopy for left sided pain and they found nothing.  Turns out it was to do with lactose intolerance, but I always imagine the worse!    
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.

      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!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
