Good Gluten Free Bread Mix?

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.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      I am in same boat, yesterday my stomach was churning and bloated and I don't know what the cause was.  How about keeping a food diary? Just note what you ate and how you feel. A few days may be sufficient to discern a pattern, either some rogue product or a previously unknown intolerance. I have read that after gluten is removed further intolerances which were hidden can become apparent.  I don't know whether you could cut yourself some slack from a full vegan approach whilst your body heals? If not, maybe you could substitute say milk with coconut milk or similar to give your body a break whilst keeping calcium levels high? If you join coeliac uk you can check your sauces etc on their gluten-free database, they'll also send you a book which became my bible until I got a hang of which brands I could eat safely. Finally, have you excluded cross contamination from pots and pans, toasters, shared condiments etc?  Good luck!
    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.

      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.
