gluten-free But Tapioca Intolerant
0

8 posts in this topic

I have ulcerative colitis and am also gluten intolerant. In my experiments with gluten free products I have discovered that I am apparently sensitive to tapioca (it aggravates my UC symptoms).

I love to cook and bake so I am disappointed that I will be unable to use the gluten-free baking mixes that are readily available on the market. They make life so simple!

Do you have a gluten-free/tapioca free baking mix recipe that you could share that is pretty all-purpose and doesn't change texture/taste too much and that is also simple to make? Thanks!

I haven't tried tapioca flour yet, but have it in my cupboard. Last weekend something smacked me, it was either dairy or chickpea flour. Just in case you don't already know, Elana Amsterdam has a nice cookbook that is pretty simple, but uses almond flour exclusively. The upside is that you don't gave to add xanthum or guar gum, and that almond flour is pretty healthy. The recipes are pretty simple, with short ingredient lists.

The downside is that you have to purchase the flour online, keep it in the freezer, and bring it to room temperature before proceeding with most recipes.

I've found I can't tolerate quinoa. It's funny how the different "safe" grains affect us differently.

I get the almond flour at nutsonline.com. You can see some of her recipes and blog at glutenfreegoddess.com. I hope that helps.

I've seen recipes that use oat flour vs. tapioca, but I've had issues with gluten-free oats, and haven't pursued tried any of those. Good luck to you!

Thanks for the website recommendation. I will check it out. I haven't had any issues with gluten free oats so that might be a good place to start. I use those (ground in the food processor) in my meatloaf and meatballs already.

You could do what I do for my corn allergic son. Follow any one of the recipes for a flour blend but use only the starches that you can have. We sub tapioca for corn but you could so the opposite and use corn or potato for tapioca so that you are using a combo of corn and potato for your starches.

Oops, I did post the wrong website for Elana Amsterdam. Thanks for providing the correct post. :)

I would also suggest subbing for another starch. I've subbed arrowroot pretty successfully... on the down side it is much more expensive.

Try:

3 cups brown rice flour

3 cups cornstarch

2 cups sorghum flour

1 cup corn flour

Add 1/2 ts xanthan gum per cup flour blend for general baking ..
