      READ FIRST: Super Sensitive Celiacs Disclaimer   09/23/2015

      This section of the forum is devoted to those who have responses to gluten beyond the experience of the majority of celiacs. It should not be construed as representative of the symptoms you are likely to encounter or precautions you need to take. Only those with extreme reactions need go to the lengths discussed here. Many people with newly diagnosed celiac disease have a condition known as leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to the development of sensitivity to other foods until the gut is healed - which may take as long as one to three years. At that time they are often able to reincorporate into their diet foods to which they have formerly been sensitive. Leaky gut syndrome leads many people to believe they are being exposed to gluten when they are in fact reacting to other foods.

What Brand Of Gluten Free Flours Do You Buy?

6 posts in this topic

Up until now I have always mainly bought Bobs Red Mill flours because of their manufacturing practices. It seems though that if I eat too much (even just a sandwich) of something made from their flours I start having "gluten reactions". Just wondering what brands those of you that are super sensitive use? I would love to grind my own but I don't have a way to grind it and not sure if it's more expensive that way or not. If you do grind your own where do you get your whole grains??

Can I add a question here? What would everyone's favorite grinder be?

For large amounts? and for small amounts (1-2 cups)?

(Hope you don't mind me sneaking in this question :unsure: .)

I grind my own. I mentioned my grinder in your other post. I started out just using an inexpensive coffee grinder until I was sure that would be something I wanted to do. It's way cheaper to grind your own than to buy flour.

I get whole grain sorghum from Twin Valley mills. It's on the order form on their website. I used Lundberg rice, though I'm currently off it. For millet my best source was Eden Organic, buckwheat, birkett Mills.

It's important to sort and wash before grinding. I find "other grains" in my whole grains regularly. That's probably why gluten-free flour got me. I guess it's a small enough amount so that it doesn't bother other celiacs. Funny to think that I am sorting through enough grains to find less than 20 parts in a million. I must have sorted through a half million grains or so, based on how many other grains I've come across.

I got an old Hobart grinder off E-bay. Monster heavy duty thing. A farmer used it to grind corn for his critters. I don't use it much but it would grind an elephant if you cut it up small enough. Not real fine elephant meal, but not to rough either. I used it to grind split peas for flour. Great for instant pea soup. Weighs 50 lbs though, so not a lite weight.
