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...

    • Awok, Welcome to the forum.  Have you considered trace gluten?  Here is a study on the topic: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3598839/pdf/1471-230X-13-40.pdf It could explain why you felt good for a while.  I personally was glutened badly last summer.  I have no idea what got me.  I suspect either a prescription medication or one gluten free product (not certified).  I ended up on a whole foods diet and avoided even certified processed gluten-free foods including grains until I was healed (three to six months).  
    • I've had a range of symptoms in the last 2 months and in the past few weeks I have discovered that my TTG abs (igA) levels were 41 (my igA tests were fine). The doctor said that he is pretty much certain that it is celiac disease and I am awaiting an endoscopy to confirm it.  Before I found out that my TTG abs (igA) levels were high, I noticed that my body was reacting really badly to dairy products. I went on an elimination diet and stopped all gluten and dairy products and felt much better. I carried this on after my results and thought that I must have developed a dairy intolerance due to my celiac. 2 days ago I accidentally consumed a glass of wine which I thought was dairy free but it contained Milk. I have not had any gluten.  I am currently in the middle of a flare up. All of a sudden rashes have started to appear on my hands and my anxiety has returned (usually not a anxious person). No diarhhoea, vomiting or digestive issues. I am currently suffering from muscle twitching, rashes predominantly on hands and feet, brain fog, pins and needles/numbness on hands, feet and arms. However, I have been tested for milk allergy and this came back negative. Is it possible that it is dairy that is causing my symptoms/autoimmune reaction and could this be a reason for elevetated TTG abs (igA) levels. Or has the doctor only picked up my celiac and missing something else. If it was dairy intolerance then I would have digestive issues but I don't seem to have any. Could it be the casein protein?  Anyone been in a similar situation or can anyone provide some insight? 
    • Hello Everyone, This is my first post here and I am writing to seek help from experienced people here. I have been suffering for over 4 years now and still no where close to having a solution/ satisfactory diagnosis of my problem. My problems started in Mar 2012 with sudden diarrhea which would not go away for days. At first, I was given general antibiotics medication which would help bring down the frequency for some days and then it would come back. Since then it has been going on. I am giving a time line and the series of tests and procedures I have gone through. Would like opinion from experienced and experts here. I can send the scans and reports if required. Would really appreciate the help. Male, Indian origin Mar 2012 - onset of symptoms - multiple bouts diarrhea - spaced 3-4 weeks, bloating, weight loss (to start with I was 74 Kgs), GP managed with antibitocs and loperamide for months Dec 2012 - consulted a GI doc towards end of 2012, Colonoscopy done - conclusion was "IBS" - was advised to manage stress. use Rifaximin and immodium Jan 2013 - Aug 2013 kept moderately fine for 3-4 months ..again started getting frequent diarrhea + weight loss (was around 70 Kgs) Oct 2013 - Consulted another doc, MD - stool and blood test - Ecoli and high Eosinophil Count, medication done for 5-6 months, montinored eosinophil from nov - Mar: always kept high.. came down but then again shot up in a month Mar 2014 - Consulted another GI expert - Endoscopy and duodenal biopsy done - H Pylori and Unremarkable Villious pattern, (weight 68 Kgs) - On and Off diarrhea continued. Given: Ivermectin July 2014 - again same doc - Blood test done: High Eosinophil count,  Colonoscopy and Ileum biopsy - preserved villous architecture, features of eosinophilic enteritis; Endoscopy  + duodenal biospy again - numerous H pylori bacteria, Preserved villous crypt ratio, features of eosinophilic enteritis > conclusion: I have eosinophilic enteritis. Started on Prednisolone (steroids) Aug 2014 - 3-4 days of severe diarrhea> weight came down to 65 Kgs. Hospitalised for 3 days - continued on Prednisolonerios Sep 2014 - After 10 days only again a serious bout of diarrhea - hospitalized again - put on IV fluid for 8 days - weight 59 Kgs. Colonoscopy + biopsy done: features of superimposed c. difficile colitis, non-specific mild colitis > c. difficle test came out negative. CT Enterolysis +Scan done: mesenteric lymphadenopathy > nothing wrong acc to docs. IgA deficiency found - diagnosed Celiac - advised for Gluten free diet.   Sep 14 - May 16: continued gluten-free diet, gained weight upto 63 Kg in Jan 16, but then started losing again and came to 59 Kgs in May. No signficant diarrhea. Minor issues. June 16 onwards: Again diarrhea started, still on gluten-free diet, weight lost - 54 Kgs now. hospitalised again under same GI doc - blood test - eosinophil high, CT Enterolysis done: Showing mucosal thickening in Jejunum and Ileum; Enteroscopy (going in jejunum) + jejunal biopsy - jejunal erosions + villous blunting, marked atrophic with V:C ratio of 0.5: 1 to 0:1. HttG blood test done - Came out negative> Conclusion : No gluten exposure (how?) + Refractory Celiac disease. June - July - have been suffering from continuous diarrhea (goes off for 5-6 days and comes back, bloating, trappings in abdomen - waiting for I don't know what. On Rifaximin + Ivermectin + Codeine Sulphate (for diarrhea) I am very depressed and have no clarity on what's going on. If it is celiac, why am I not doing better on gluten-free diet. If the villous damage is still there in small intestine, then why did I kept fine for Sep - May period? HTTG - negative now but was NOT taken in Sep when I was first diagnosed with celiac. Can we trust negative HTTG now and conclude that it has come down? I am 20 kgs down from my ideal weight and still going down. Have no clue what NOT to eat to stop this. Why is eosinophil always high. Can any of you expert help me to put my case to docs in other countries? With lots of hope, Alok          
    • So, I know I'm obsessing but...... University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center website says any total IgA result over 20 won't affect the celiac test.   If this is so,  I'm still confused as to what a weak positive ttg iga means even though her result was barely in this category.  Why bother having a weak positive anyway?   I just don't get it and our doc is on vacation so I won't know what he'll recommend for another week.  I'll be finding out this week if we can see a GI without a referral. Our lyme doc (she's had lyme, may still have it, like I said it's a long story) is having her do an IgG wheat test but I don't think that has any bearing on celiac does it?    
    • Hi!  I've had good luck at the Minnesota state fair because most food booths are only doing one thing so there is no cross-contamination. For example: french fries or chocolate covered bacon or Indian kebabs.   But I live in California and I am heading to the state fair today! Does anybody have any great food suggestions that are definitely gluten-free there? Thanks, Celiac C.
