Baked Goods Cooked At Higher Temperatures To Make Them Gluten Free?
0

6 posts in this topic

So I went to kneaders and asked if they had any gluten free products. They said they had some gluten "friendly" items, whatever that is supposed to mean, and they also said that their eclaires were gluten free. I was excited about this, until I asked how they made them (in kneaders factory/got them from somewhere else etc.) They said that they were made by kneaders and that they were made with normal flour (containing gluten) but that they baked them at a higher temperature so that the gluten would be baked out of them. I just found this to be ridiculous. So I did some searches on if heat can kill gluten. From what I found on this forum, "It has been suggested on here that if you "cooked" the gluten at 600 for 1/2 hour, you could destroy it." I'm assumming this is talking about cleaning to get rid of gluten so that you could safely cook on appliances that had previously been used for items containing gluten. If you cooked an eclaire at 600 for 1/2 hour they would be charcoal. Does anyone have any sources they could share for information in regards to this. I do not like that they are advertising a gluten free item that they make with normal flour containing gluten. Had I not asked how they make their so-called gluten free eclaires I would have purchased and eaten them.

No baked goods made from wheat, rye or barley or contaminated oats is ever safe for a celiac.

Period.

You can bake the beejeepers out of it, and it will still CONTAIN the gluten protein.

Are you referencing something someone said about a charcoal fire and a grill perhaps?

You were correct - that theory is a false. This is one myth that needs busting.

What we were talking about is destroying gluten by burning it up. If you destroyed the gluten in a baked good, it would be a burned pile of ashes. Yummy!

Hee-hee. I just went to their website and wrote to them about it. I told them that anyone with celiac disease who eats these WILL get sick and that they might be in danger of a lawsuit. I told them that next time I need to go to Denver (which will probably be fairly soon, actually) I will stop in and check if they are still calling these gluten-free.

Unbelievable! Some compaines think we are stupid enough to believe this. I bought rice pudding about 4 years ago and it said gluten free on the label but had wheat listed on the label. How can it be gluten-free???

That is amazing this company told you that. So frustratring.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
