I Found Bread! (australia)
0

11 posts in this topic

Hi! I haven't written on here in aaaaaaages (i've been lurking hehe :P) but I got so excited about some bread I found that I just had to shout it from the forum rooftops! :lol:

It's from a gluten-free bakery in Sydney but they deliver around eastern Australia. It's called Choices Gluten Free (http://choicesglutenfree.com.au) and they only make gluten-free stuff so there's no chance of contamination (i've had problems with contamination at non dedicated bakeries before). All the loaves of bread are free from gluten, egg, soy and dairy, and they have all sorts of other goodies which aren't as free of allergens as the loaves but sound delicious (I've had the chocolate danishes so far *drool emoticon*).

I've still needed to toast the bread before munching it but I actually enjoy eating it! I've been having toasted sandwiches for lunch these past few days and haven't needed to smother them in condiments to take the bread flavour away like I used to do, yay!!

My favourites so far are the pumpkin and herb bread, the multigrain bread and the fruit bread. I've got some bread rolls and bagels in the freezer which are awaiting me so i'll have to let you know what they're like too :)

I'll have to start writing more often with my discoveries! (loving Orgran crispibread too)

I hope you all have a very merry and gluten free Christmas! :D

Isn't it great when you find something you love? I have tried Choices products and they aren't bad but I definately prefer Lifestyle Bakery. www.lifestylebakery.com.au . Their Chia seed Loaf is the best Gluten Free bread on the market in my opinion. I cant wait for easter when they release their hot cross buns!!!

Oooh i've heard about that bread! I haven't managed to find it yet though :( Does it have soy in it? I'm not that great with soy...would make an exception for extreme deliciousness though :P

Have you tried the Naturis Organic Gluten free Buckwheat loaf? We really like it. I buy about 6 loaves a week and then just repackage them into 4 slices in a zip log and freeze them. We toast them before we have them. You can buy the bread at Franklins or Harris Farmers . I don

I'm a choices devotee, I don't eat any other bread as have been majorly disappointed by the others.

I treated myself to the brownies the other day, they were pretty good but more of a muffin I suppose. Still worth having though, much better than their biscuts.

I'm with Aussie peg - I love their fruit bread, it's so lovely. I use the wholemeal for everyday, with occasional pizza bases. I had the bagels the other day, they had a good outer texture.

If you can make it to the original choices shop ( I think it's in turramurra) there are a couple of shops next to it that have some good gluten-free products too :)

I'll be keeping my eye out for the naturis too, can't hurt to have some variety. If you get a chance to try the freevos banana bread mix, go for it, I made my gluten-eating family jealous with it!

Hello Peggy and all

Hello to others also from Australia. I got excited I found bread too, and I am near Brisbane a couple of hours away. Isn't that wonderful.

I found mine at Woolworths in Lismore, but I am sure that u may be able to go to other Woolworths as well, to give it a try. Will keep also that bread in mind.

The bread I found was

Gluten Free Country Life Bakery, White. But it is not milk and egg free, and has other things in it as well. If I end up with what I think I have allergy wise, then we are probably not going to be able to eat this, but will have to look at the bread u have just said. I wonder if Woolworths could order some in?

It is good to share info, because u can get a choice as well. I also found a good range of gluten-free products in Woolworths, which really surpised me and delighted me.

BTW I have been going to Brisbane Weekly seeing specialists at Greenslopes. Going to Windsor in Brisbane again for my family's allergy test. And then possibly laser treatment for allergies etc...r u near there?

Have a great day

Peace 4 1

Hi All,

I'll have to try that Choices bread. I was just diagnosed this week, and tried my first gluten free bread a few hours ago and it wasn't very appetising! The pasta on the other hand, was pretty tasty, I guess you've got to take the good with the bad :)

I live on the Gold Coast, but go to Brisbane regularly does anyone know any tips for local places that sell tasty gluten free food? I've heard Sol breads are good, but have yet to try them??

Thanks :)

HOT CROSS BUN TIME!!! :) Hurray! I love Easter and I'm so glad that being gluten free doesnt stop me from eating my favourite food ever hot cross buns. I love Lifestyle Bakery's buns and I'm really excited because I just discovered that you can buy direct from them online now! www.lifestylebakery.com I really love their bread crumbs too.

I've posted about how much I love choices in the past, but I've found another bread that I like even more!

Zehnder bread - stocked in IGA stores mostly. I had the wholemeal, it was amazing! It does have more ingredients than choices, I think it includes soy and yeast so it won't agree with as many people, but it really was delicious. It had that bounciness to the bread, I made my non-gluten-free family members taste it and they were impressed!

I was away from home at the time I found it so I toased it in my fry pan, it's great as long as you make sure you dry it out really thoroughly.

I'm off to get some more, but will stick with choices too :)

I have found I love the Brighterlife bread mix. There is no Wheat, Soy, Egg, Gluten, Corn, Artificial Colours, Preservatives, Yeast, Salicylates, Amines, Casein, Fructose, Low in Fat

and Low in Sugar. The cake mixes and pikelet mixes are great too - there is a CWA style cookbook too where you can make nearly anything by a simple 2 minute mix :) As soon as I ate it - it just felt GOOD for me...

    • 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.
