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.

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.

      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
