Cereals Vs Flour Made Breads

Does anyone know the difference between cereals and all other forms of breads? I only know that cereals are not ground to a flour.

I'm asking this because I do NOT have a reaction to cereals yet have a reaction to almost all other forms of breads.

Your question is too vague to answer. Breads are made with various flours and cereals can be made with anything ranging from Flour to corn to oats etc.... Can't really compare the 2 without being brand specific.

Are you a newly diagnosed Celiac and do you have a question about a particular cereal ?

BTW some cereals start as ground flour and formed into flakes , rings etc..

Is it possible that you're reacting to the Xangthum gum used in making bread? Some people don't tolerate it well.

OP here, let me add some more details to clarify.

I started reacting to breads back in December 2012, and it was acute (sudden), I had eaten breads (anything made from wheat and gluten) all my life.

I tested NEGATIVE for Celiacs, NEGATIVE to all allergies and antigens to gluten and wheat.

However I am still reacting (and by reacting I mean having severe pain an hour later after eating breads and then thrashing and sometimes passing out).

I noticed that I am (currently) NOT allergic to cereals, such as Raisin Bran or Mini Wheats (anything that is NOT ground to a flour).

Wheats that are ground to a flour like pizza dough, baked breads, even semolina in pastas give me a bad reaction and we can not figure out why.

I'm trying to figure out the difference between breads made from ground wheat flour and cereals that are NOT made from flour and do NOT give me a reaction.

Ground corn flour or other NON-wheat flours do NOT give me a reaction.

I'm not sure if I'm allergic to xanthan gum but I will look into it. I have NEVER been allergic to anything before... besides bleach and I have been thinking about the bleaching agents added to "enriched" wheat flour.

Yeast? That would be in most breads but not a whole grain or cereal.

Just because you tested - on a Celiac panel doesn't mean you don't have a gluten issue: Celiac or NCGS. Ditto with allergy.

It might be the high protein (gluten) found in some wheat varieties. Sometimes wheat gluten is added to bread products and I believe semolina is a high protein wheat.

Find some organic non-bromated, unenriched wheat flour and bake some bread? Bake some yeast free bread? You can buy vital wheat gluten and try adding it to something and see if that triggers.

Does this happen with bread you bake at home, currently?

What Prickly says make good sense. It looks like you'll have to do a bit of experimenting?

When I mentioned Xangthum gum I thought you were referring to gluten-free breads and cereals. Wheat breads probably wouldn't have it. It's used for texture in gluten-free which is hard to get right without the gluten.

Thanks for the insight! :)

No, I have not baked breads at home, do you know how I would go about that to "experiment"? Is there a list of ingredients I should buy, make, and try?

Is yeast only found in wheat bread? Is there yeast in corn or rice-made breads too? I know I am NOT allergic to rice or corn-made anything.

I double checked and I have eaten foods with xangthum gum, no reaction so I don't think it's that.

You need a recipe for wheat bread, that is raised with yeast.

Most general recipes are wheat breads, raised with yeast.

Just google for a recipe called "easy homemade bread" or something like that.

The key is the flour. You need to find something that meets your elimination criteria - organic, non bromated, etc.

Here, this would be easy: http://www.simplyscratch.com/2012/05/easy-homemade-french-bread.html

Possibly barley? A lot of regular flour has barley (or barley malt?) added to it.

      You sure did nail it! I was too worried it was MS or Lupus or Celiac to be able to really give that option a chance. If anything my guess was low b12. The only obvious things in my diet are Vitamin water and protein bars. If you look at food it's in practically everything in pretty high doses. Going gluten-free uncovered this or made it start. MTHFR gene maybe? Magnesium too low? I haven't taken my multi & am looking up everything I'm eating. Still having the twitches but not near as much in my calves and feet. My arch pain is gone & energy is up a bit. Still twitching though and had some arm and shoulder pain overnight. I read it can be 6 months or longer for nerves to heal.
    • How the gluten-free diet can cause new heartburn / GERD: sodium acid pyrophosphate
      I never really had much heartburn before my diagnosis of Celiac and consequent dietary changes. But since then, I have discovered Udis, Van's, Canyon Bakehouse, and many other gluten-free brands. About a year ago I began eating 2 waffles every day, 7 days a week with my breakfast. The waffles I was eating were Nature's Path and Van's, both which use very high amounts of sodium acid pyrophosphate. The waffles are mostly air and carbs. Within a few weeks I began to develop recurrent, very painful heartburn that would popup constantly. My tolerance for acidic foods declined--whereas previously it would take much more acidic foods to cause heartburn, now any amount, no matter how small, would cause heartburn. And it kept getting worse with each month to the point that I began to worry about my health. I developed GERD that wouldn't go away for 24 hours after eating an offending food. The offending foods list kept growing bigger and bigger to the point that almost anything would cause heartburn and some degree of GERD. So I eliminated almost all foods containing sodium acid pyrophosphate and the heartburn and GERD stopped. I can eat tomato-based foods again with either no discomfort or 5% of the discomfort I used to experience, and I can eat foods on the offending food list again with no heartburn at all. Despite searching the internet for hours for an answer to what was causing my heartburn and GERD, I found nothing definitive and had to figure it out on my own. Did you know there is absolutely nothing at all anywhere on the internet connecting sodium acid pyrophosphate with hearburn? To my knowledge this will be the first ever post on the topic on the entire internet. Either that, or both Google and DuckDuckGo are suppressing the information. Also, did you know that sodium acid pyrophosphate is an ingredient found in almost all aluminum-free baking powder? That's what I get for trying to eliminate aluminum! I am making the switch to single-action aluminum-free baking powder soon--single-action doesn't have this ingredient, but it's less convenient to use unfortunately. I'm interested to hear if it causes anyone else heartburn as well. I'm glad to be heartburn-free and comfortable for the first time in a year.
    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Leaky gut is a condition that we have little knowledge of.  The symptoms this condition could cause are not agreed upon. Some health practitioners say it could cause "wide range of long term conditions [1], like chronic fatigue syndrome and Multiple Sclerosis. The possible cause list NHS gives is much more accurate: inflammatory bowel diseases – such as Crohn's disease infections of the intestines – such as salmonella, norovirus andgiardiasis  coeliac disease  chemotherapy medicines chronic kidney disease   radiotherapy to the abdomen (tummy) immunosuppressants (medicines that weaken the immune system) HIV/AIDS  cystic fibrosis   type 1 diabetes sepsis complicated surgery As you can see, the list includes a lot gastrointestinal conditions. Gut becomes "leaky", letting too big particles into blood system, and possibly these particles act as poison (because they are not  supposed to be in the blood, thus the possible bad effects). Now, to confirm this disease, I was amazed that this test hadn't been done before:
      Feed the supposed "leaky gut" patients (e.g. celiacs with damaged bowel) with IV fluids. Because these fluids go directly into the blood stream, and the particles are "elemental" (glucose, vitamins, amino acids... all supposed to be in the blood stream anyway), they shouldn't cause any symptoms. If they notice improvement, the problem is in the digestive system (I'm also including stomach). If not, such condition as "leaky gut" doesn't exist. Rather the problem is how the body reacts to the "elemental" particles. E.g the most common explanation would be diabetes (the IV fluids just caused elevated glucose levels), that also should be tested. Also the "candida theory", because its proponents say the candida is in the WHOLE body, including the blood stream. To eliminate this, patients should take anticandida meds, then again go on IV fluids, and if they NOW get better, it was candida. If not candida, and not diabetes, nor allergies, we have a new condition we aren't even aware of (body reacting to elementary particles with no obvious reason). However, if the patients DO get better, the problem IS in the gut. Now, it could be celiac disease, and the improvement could have been due to eliminating gluten from the diet (because IV doesn't contain gluten). The question remains that did the bowel actually leak any particles? (not just gluten causing autoimmune reactions and malnutrition, and explaining all the  300 symptoms).  Or the patients just get better due to NOW acquiring all the necessary nutrients.  To eliminate these possibilities, they should feed the patients with gluten-free food (or even better, with elemental diet, because it could also be lack of digestive enzymes or something else). If they get worse, the problem is STILL in the gut, and thus the "leaky gut" exists. If not, "leaky gut" is probably a non-existent condition.
    • So Hershey's Miniatures Aren't Gluten Free?
      I am really ill just now - 20 minutes after eating 2 Hersheys Milk Chocolate Miniatures - checked on the Hersheys site and the milk choc. minis are NOT included on their list of gluten-free products -and no, I am not sensitive to dairy, so that's not it.  NO MORE for me... it is not the "end to a perfect day" but it isn't fun.
    • Candida test
      I noticed after I posted this that there are some topics about this posted before.  There is a search function above.  But, if anyone has anything new to post that would be appreciated.
