Good Gluten Free Bread Mix?
0

5 posts in this topic

Are there any? I bought some bob's red mill gluten free bread mix and made it today. It was really 'meeh', disapointing, blah? I guess I was half expecting it to taste like home made 'real' bread. But the thought of getting flour all over the kitchen making traditional bread freaked me out because my daughter might get into it. First thing I really noticed was the smell of the dough. I LOVE bread dough smell. This was not it. It smelled great after it was done but had a weird, spongy, firm, memory foam texture. Is that normal or did I do it wrong? I am going to make sandwiches and if that doesn't taste good I am making stuffing out of it.

hi, I would suggest either making your own(lots of work, trial and error), or THE GLUTEN FREE PANTRY(brand) "my favorite sandwich bread" is great!! Easy to make, I mix it up in a kitchen aid blender, put it in a bread tin (I line them with parchment paper), let it rise in fairly warm oven for about 45 min, (It should crest top of bread tin), then bake for 30 min. Can't beat it. Slice it and freeze it unless you eat alot of bread. Otherwise, after 3 to 4 days it will go crumbly

I have been doing this for our teenage son for three years and have tried many many products. This bread is the best. Another good brand is SKAR(spelling?). It is available at walmart. Easy to make, but we didn't like it as well. It looks as white as regular white bread, but doesn't taste as good as GlutenFreePantry brand. walmart also has vacumn packed hamburger buns which are made by that same company skar. Until you open them, they can just sit on your shelf, no refridge necessary. They are wonderful. We've had a hard time with a teenage son and no burger buns. these are wonderful.

Good luck.

I'm a huge fan of Pamela's wheat free bread mix. I buy it in bulk/by the case from that company w/ the name of the long river in So. America (sometimes sites won't let you say the name)and when I combine it w/ my order of Tinyada pasta... shipping is FREE.

It makes delicious bread and I often make rolls rather than a loaf. I've also done the bagel "variation" and that was delicious too.

Before Pam's, I used Manna from Anna bread mix and that was good too, but there were too many ingredients to add to the mix. Pam's only requires oil, eggs, and water.

I love the Gluten Free Pantry bread mixes--French and Sandwich. I don't use a breadmaker--just mix them up in my Kitchenaid and bake in the oven.

Another vote for gluten-free Pantry - definitely the best I have tried.

    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
    • tom & chee!  good to know   they grill the sandwich on a separate pan?  or do you just order soup and salad.  so cool to find more places to eat out!!
    • Hi everybody,  I have had symptoms of Celiac since mid pregnancy and they have gotten worse over the last 5 months post partum. I have constipation, periods stopped, extreme fatigue,  joint pain, weak muscles, dizzyness, migraines, light sensitivity,  pins and needles in hands and feet, elevated TSH, depreason and anxiety. Was put on thyroid meds but it didn't help any of my symptoms. My doctor told me to try gluten free and reintroduce it. I tried it for 2 weeks and started feeling quite a bit better, then reintroduced it and felt worse than ever! It's definitely a gluten problem. She suggested I get the Celiac panel run so I got tested for Ttg iga, DGP igg and EMA all came back NEGATIVE! by this point I had only reintroduced gluten for a few days. She said my antibodies shouldn't go down by much in this time frame. Should I push for a referral to a GI doctor? I don't know why I feel the need for diagnosis? Probably my mother in law laughing when I said I can't eat gluten anymore and she tried to offer me things like donuts, saying it's just a little.  She just doesn't get it. So now, do I suffer for 6 weeks to get the biopsy or just stop eating gluten and be done with it.  I have also noticed while introducing new foods to my baby that he throws up whenever I give him anything wheat based. I doubt they can diagnose a baby and I refuse to damage his intestines for a diagnosis.  Maybe I should get my daughter tested as well? She is 3 and has been complaining of upset tummy and is frequently constipated. She is growing well though but is also quite thin. She is not a big eater. She may be constipated because she holds it. She is afraid to poop on the potty. Since I have had symptoms for only about 10 months, could there not be much damage yet? Sorry for the long post!
