Need Help Finding Subs For 2 Ingredients
0

22 posts in this topic

I made this today & it was to die for!!!!! I think this recipe has been on this board a dozen times. This is the first bread my hubs actually liked! But both of us at this point in time have to be low iodine AND low salicylate. SO, I need to eliminate the egg yolk b/c of high iodine & sub something for the almond flour b/c of high salicylates.

I know you guys are inventive & can help me. I was wondering if just using the egg white alone would work --- if so that would solve that problem.

Here is the recipe:

1 large egg<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">2 Tbs. brown rice flour<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">1 Tbs. almond meal<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">1 Tbs. golden flax meal<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">1/2 tsp. baking powder<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">3/4 tsp. sugar<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">1/2 tsp. cocoa powder<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">shake of salt<br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); "><br style="color: rgb(44, 54, 68); font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px; background-color: rgb(250, 251, 252); ">Spray a custard dish (or any baking dish that will yield a hamburger bun sized "loaf") with non stick spray. Crack egg into dish and stir with a fork until it's well mixed. Add all other ingredients and stir well. Cook in microwave on high for 90 seconds. You'll have to loosen around the edges with a butter knife, but mine came out pretty easily.

Whew, thanks Jestgar. That was hard to read.

I'd try subbing more flax meal for the almond flour. You might not miss the egg yolk with more flax because flax is a common egg substitute. I'd throw in a wee bit of water or melted coconut oil if the batter seems thicker than usual from missing the fluid in the egg yolk.

Ground almonds. I get Bob's Red Mill brand at my local health food store. It's kind of pricy but really good. You can make it yourself by putting blanched almonds into a food processor. Just be sure you don't overdo it or you get almond butter. :lol:

Thanks jestgar for fixing that for me. I didn't even check it after posting.huh.gif Why does it do that when I copy & paste anyway?

Skylark, thank you!!!!!! I will try that. I swear it was really hard not to make about 5 more after tasting the first one & sit down on the floor & just gorge on BREAD! It tasted like homemade whole wheat bread; something that my dad made often around our house. Gaaaa, it was GOOD! I'll try throwing in a bit of water as coconut oil is out as a double whammy of both iodine & sals.

Oh this thing was so quick & easy too!

You can also get it from Nuts.com. It is also known as almond flour. Before I bought it I checked & it seems it goes by either name; almond meal or almond flour but they are both the same thing. Then I found out I have to go low sal for some months. But it's in the fridge waiting......

You can buy tapioca flour. I don't know about grinding up the tapioca pellet things. Maybe someone else will.

You can use just egg white alone (I do that in my bread too) and as Skylark says, just add a bit of water if it is too dry.

You can try to substitute almond flour with some ground cashew nuts, they are low in salicylates. I am allergic to almonds and always use whatever other nuts I have, never noticed any big difference in flavor or texture. Poppy seeds are also low in sals, although they might give a bit different flavor to the bread.

Ah! Thank you Pac. I have cashews & they are one of my safe snacks right now b/c of the low sals. Good tip!

Oh yum! I got all the ingredients and made this today. You were right! I used sweet white rice instead of brown rice.

I just thought I would update.

I tried the recipe today using just egg white & leaving out the almond flour but increasing the flax meal to 1 and 3/4 Tblsp. plus adding just a bit of water. It was good! I think it needs a bit more sugar though as the flax makes it a bit bitter.

Next I'm going to try with the cashew flour instead of almond flour.

I wonder how I could make a white-ish bread version of this?

Glad you made some progress on the recipe! Try golden flax meal when you get your next bag. I find it's milder-tasting.

I just ordered some golden flax meal today along with cashew flour, hazelnut flour, teff flour, sweet rice flour & I forget what all else. I'm going to experiment with making a white-ish bread version of this with the sweet rice flour & cashew flour.

Oh, & I toasted some of the last I made & spread cashew butter on the warm toast & I felt like I'd died & gone to heaven.

I find chia seed works in place of flax, but imparts no discernible taste. They form a similar gel when soaked in water too. I find it takes about 15 minutes or so to fully gel. The seeds are very tiny - no grinding required. White chia would probably make less an impact on color than the black chia. Not sure of the proportion, but if memory serves, the suggestion given in the articles I've read was that less chia is required compared to flax. I want to say 1 tsp chia in place of 1 Tbsp flax meal, but I'd have to look it up again.

Thanks RiceGuy! Matter of fact I got a delivery today of a bunch of flours & such i had ordered along with white chia seed. YAY! So I will be able to do lots of experimenting.

Does chia seed make stuff crunchy? Or when cooked does it soften?

No additional crunch that I've noticed. Actually, I'd say if anything it tends to do what other water-retaining binders do, which is to add moistness. Though not nearly as much as the gums.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • 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
