Gluten Free Bread
0

8 posts in this topic

I bought my first loaf of gluten free bread (Udi). At the store it comes in the freezer case. Do I need to keep it in my freezer at home? If so, what is the best way to defrost it to use it for sandwiches. Thanks.

I don't use UDI's but the bread I do use is also frozen. I take out about 1/4 to 1/2 loaf and put it in the fridge to thaw if I am eating a lot of sandwiches or toast that week. If not I just thaw out what I am using right then by toasting or zap it in the microwave for a few seconds.

I leave the Udi's on the counter and let it defrost. My son is hooked on sandwiches and toast so we go through about a loaf a week.

I just starting to find and use Udi's bread and it's the best bread out there. It is unique from all other gluten free breads that I've tried in that you can defrost it by leaving it out on the counter for 10-15 minutes and it is still edible! Most others need to be nuked and toasted slightly to make it taste right.

Enjoy!

I typically buy 6-8 loaves frozen and keep in the freezer. I will pull one loaf out and let it defrost in the fridge and just store it in the fridge. If I need to defrost quickly I will just use the microwave.

I leave mine in the freezer.

When I need a couple slices for a sandwich, I wrap each slice in a moistened paper towel and nuke both of them at the same time for about 8 seconds. Then I turn them over and zap em for another 8 sec.

For toast, I just use them frozen. Actually, I butter one side lightly, and toast them in a pop-up toaster set on "Bagel". That is, it only toasts one side. The butter side of course. Most don't know you can do that. I'm claiming it as my discovery. If there is a little bit of smoke, just ignore it. B)

best regards, lm

When I am taking bread to work, I pop it into one of those inexpensive fold over baggies and by the time I get to work it is soft and yummy. Works for bagels too. I just tried the Rudi's bread and I like it better than the Udi brand.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
