Jules Gluten Free Flour
0

7 posts in this topic

Hello all,

Just signed up for this forum, so forgive me if this is not posted in the appropriate place! I am an extremely super, super sensitive celiac so my question is directed at other super sensitives. Have any of you tried Jules gluten free flour? If so, did you react to it? I am cooking a Thanksgiving dinner this year and having some flour I can use would be very helpful. I have tried several of the pre-packaged varieties out there and reacted to them. I also make my own rice flour a lot, however it comes out gritty and coarse, and is not useful for baking. Jules website states that they use very strict manufacturing procedures, so it sounds promising. However, at 19.95 per bag, I'd like to have a better idea about whether I will have to throw it out or not! Anyone who has tried it please let me know..Thanks

I usually bake with several flours and have one flour blend in my cupboard which I have also not been satisfied with.....I have ordered Jules Flour and I should be getting my flour next week.....I was on the fence with the price too..BUT when I calculated out what I was paying for my usual Flour Blend it calculated out (with free shipping) to be cheaper, remember her bags are 5lbs and not 2 or 3 like some other flour blends.....She also offers a sample pack for you to try to see if you like it......Jules herself has Celiac so I think she would be very savvy with Cross Contamination Issues. I wanted a good flour blend to make all those Holiday Goodies I used to make without all that GRITTY and COARSE feeling you get from other flour blends. Jules Flour has a special buy 3 5lb bags and get free shipping. SO I thought I would try it!

I will let you know how it works...I do alot of baking so we will see!

There are several very high end flours that are wonderful. IE: Better Batter FLour: Meister's Flour:Domata Living FLour: Authenic FLour has super fine brown rice or super fine white rice flour. I use this to make Annalise Roberts flour blend for use with her wonderful cookbook. It is the best...Jules FLour blend.

When you buy preblended flours you do not have to add xanthan gum . Plus it is a correct blend, much easier for them to do the math instead of me trying to figure out how much of this or that!

It would be hard to say if you will react even if another sensitive person had success with a flour blend. Not everyone responds in the same way. For instance many on here love Bob's Red Mill but I react to it so I try to avoid that brand but for others its wonderful.

If anyone is looking for a stuffing mix that is good Celiac Specialies is a great one , seasoning pack included in separate packaging.

And you can have pumpkin pie without a crust! Just make your favorite filling , grease the pan or dish well add filling & bake. Perfect every time & a way lot less calories. We never eat the crust anyway...

Maybe a new flour mill would be a good idea? I got one recently and it is so much better than the coffee grinder that I was using. I make my own flour blends and that way I can visually inspect and wash the grain first. I have pulled out grains that looked like gluten from millet and corn. If Jules is really pure enough for a super sensitive, it would be worth the $20, it is a lot of work to make flour free of contamination.

Where did you buy your grain mill? that is really scary about the corn. Probably explains why I can't eat cornmeal without a reaction. Thanks!

Sorry I took so long to answer. I don't come on here very often. I bought a manual grain mill, Country Living. It's not for everyone to manually grind their grain. I really like it though. The first mill came tested with flour. They included a little package of the flour so I could see how fine it was. I freaked when I saw that in my gluten free house! I contacted them and they sent me a new one tested with rice. It was still highly contaminated with gluten and I had to put 12 cups of flour through it until the flour had undetectable amounts of gluten in it. If you get one, I suggest that you take it apart and carefully clean it before use.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
