Bread Makers - Coupla' Questions
0

7 posts in this topic

Hello people, rookie Celiac here with two questions:

1. Having bought a brand new toaster (as per recommendation), do I need to buy a new bread maker? We have an old break maker that was used pre diagnosis (i.e. to make bread WITH gluten) a few times....can I use that one?

2. Do I need a break maker with a "gluten-free" setting on it?

Many thanks,

Paul.

Hi, Paul!

Great that you bought a new toaster. Impossible to get those things free of gluten after years of use, I think. My personal opinion is that you should also buy a new bread machine. Even though I wash everything carefully by hand, I still notice that I sometimes miss a speck here and there. I never really scratched mine or anything, so I don't think gluten could get stuck that way, but I don't know what you do with your bread machine. :P

I don't think there is a gluten free setting on bread machines and if there is, I've yet to see one. That said, there are bread machine mixes you can buy, and there are gluten-free bread machine bread recipes online that can guide you in the beginning.

Personally, I hate gums (no glue in my food, please. lol). I suggest experimenting with ground chia seeds soaked in boiling water (equal to measurement of gum). It gives you a gooey, almost egg-like consistency.

Hope that helps!

Eh, can you get a new canaster for it? If not, yes you should, especially if it has scratches.

Welcome Paul!

I had a bread maker that made one or two loaves of glutenous bread and was then relegated to a very dark corner of our storage room for years. I cleaned it and washed the bread pan - both by hand and ran through dishwasher. We never had a problem with it and have made many loaves of gluten-free bread. If you do clean it - pay careful attention to the swirly mechanism at the bottom of the pan - mine had a few crumbs trapped there.

If you decide on a new maker - a gluten-free setting sounds like a great idea - not sure what it does for you, but gluten-free flours do behave a bit differently so I'd opt for that setting if choosing between models with or w/out the gluten-free setting.

OK thanks for the replies I'm going to try my luck with the existing one following a thorough, thorough clean. I'll update the thread as to my findings in due course....

there are several bread makers with gluten-free settings now on the market.....Plus Bready makes one for their specific mixes....I found where the little mixers insert is it is impossible to get all the debrie out of...but if your not a extremely sensitive celiac it may be okay for you to use the one you have....For sensitive people I don't think it is worth the risk of getting sick over...

Kinda like playing Russian Roulette !

A glutenfree setting is preferrable because glutenfree bread needs only one knead and one rise cycle. I continued to use my previous breadmaker (a Zojirushi which is expensive) and cleaned it thoroughly using a brush to clean the posts and paddles of the pan.

Initially I used the regular bread cycle to make glutenfree bread until I became more experienced and familiar with glutenfree baking. My machine doesn't have a glutenfree setting but it is programmable so I now program in the knead, rise and bake cycles myself and it has made the bread so much better. The regular setting has too many knead and rise cycles and so the bread will end up collapsing a bit and will be tougher and more crumbly.

Bread machines are not very forgiving and if you are making a yeast glutenfree bread I do not suggest you experiment without using gums. Gums are needed for structure. I once attempted using chia seeds instead and spent the rest of the evening cleaning out the absolute mess it made in my machine. And the bread had to be thrown away...it had risen up so high there was dough all over the top and sides of the machine, then when it baked it collapsed and the middle was as flat as a pancake.

It helps if you can keep an eye on the bread machine and stir down the dry ingredients on the sides with a spatula when it goes into knead cycle. Glutenfree flour mixes are harder to stir in and some machines need a little help. It is best to have a machine with 2 paddles in the pan. And try to take the bread out right away after it is done...remove it from the pan onto a wire rack for cooling so it won't get gummy.

Good luck and hope you will be back to let us know how the bread turned out.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up. 
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
