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.

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.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
