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.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
