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.

    • Celiac - Not yet diagnosed but feel like I'm dying.
      Hi Dylan I just wanted to join SLLRunner in welcoming you to the forum and yes, do ask to be tested for Celiac and Chrons. My nutritionalist told me that celiac disease is a great mimicker of many illnesses which I think must make a doctor's job all the harder when it comes to diagnosis.  For many of us it took us  a long time to get a diagnosis - for about eight years before my own diagnosis I had ulcers,  odd migraines and hallucinations on waking, anxiety, elevated blood protein but no obvious cause for it, anemia, numb hands and arms in the mornings, and eventually the abdominal pain and severe diarrhea. It was all scary stuff but  it was only when I got the last two symptoms, for six weeks, that I was tested for celiac disease (for the protocol here in the UK is that if you have a new gastric symptom for more than six weeks you should have further investigations).  I still wonder if I hadn't had that gastric pain and diarrhea whether my doctors would have even thought it was celiac related? After all you have been through it is not surprising that you are feeling depressed.  A lot of people feel very depressed and anxious before their diagnosis.  You are doing the right thing seeing a new doctor, and hopefully you are just around the corner from getting some long awaited answers.   Keep us posted.  You will find  some great advice here and support during your journey.  All the very best.

      This forum post came up when I Google searched Kirkland Dish Soap. I called them today and they said there is no gluten in the dish soap. Janis 
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not..

      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.
