How Do I Bake Gluten Free On A Sanyo The Bread Factory Plus?

07 May 2012 - 06:15 PM

I am very eager to bake with this machine some gluten-free breads so finally we can have a sandwich in our house :D !!
However the provided recipes have me stumped as they are ALL designed for gluten baking. :(

I have various gluten-free flours bought, also xanthan gum etc, so i am fairly ready to bake :)

I know as a last resort i can just hand bake the loaves, but having some health issues, the ease of this machiene would really be a boon!

I appreciate any advcie hints, recipes and tips, thank you in advance.

Help On How To Deal With A New Shrink For My Teenager

25 April 2012 - 02:20 PM

Hi everyone. Both my daughter and I have tested negatve for celiac on the blood panel however I am as sure as is possible that we have it (perhpas in very mind form) or more likely, gluten sensitivity. There is a long history for me with neuro symptoms, i have firbro and epbsein barr, lyme came back indefinite 2x.
On now to my daughter, and I am sorry there may not be a lot of details as I am very short on time. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

She has had GI issues for years. terrible pains, sweats and D following it.
The pediatric gatroentestinologist after SPEAKING to us said she probably has IB. Oh boy, did we feel 'enlightened'. How typical of a regular dorctor to be so general, although this one was a specialist. Anyhow, this was several months ago.

My daughter is NOT gluten free, when she is out of the house she gets it. The thing is because I have almost (but not entirely) eliminated it at home her terrible GI Symptoms have for the most part vanished, she just goes back to the old habits.

Our family DR xwrote on the referral papar schitsofrenia(sp), oh gosh! I have a friend who is a neurologist and he said she DOES NOT have it. I have read that gluten DOES cause it and therefore it makes very logical sense that my daughter is expereincing hearing whispers as a glutening reaction. She is almost 16.

Some one heard of this and we are in essence made to go to this doctor not of our volition...

I will come armed with books and articles which link gluten to neurological disturbances.
I hope very much she has an open mind and will not force any pill on my child.
(even if this is the case I will very doubtfully allow her to take them...)
It makes no sense that unless ALL GLUTEN which if i am not mistaken takes many months to leave the body, is GONE FROM THE BODY, to discount this, in light of her symptoms and my history.

PLEASE if you have ANY AT ALL SUGGESTIONS I am very much grateful

Please Advice: A Mother Of A Teen With Wheat Allergy/gluten Sensitivity

04 July 2011 - 02:14 PM

[size="6"][/size) Hi everyone. My soon to be 15 yo daughter and I have wheat issues for sure, probably milk issues too.

She has had extreme stomach aches for years, sweats and agonizing pain. For a few years now, she has had auditory hallucinations, she hears breathing at all hours of day and in all places in our home. As far as I know, she only hears these sounds at our home. I probably should broach the subject with her again, however I hesitate because on top of her health issues (and many of mine) she is dealing with a great deal of family issues with estranged family members.

Fairly recently, she has begun to experiece noticable neurological issues -she has had the brain fog, a dimnished balance and clumsiness.
A few days ago several hours after eating a wheat pita, my daughter had extreme body wide lack of feeling (neuropathy?). She also developed a stiff neck on one side, I provided a compress. The body malaise lasted all day. Although she is a very sensitive person she puts on a tough front, this scared her and unsettled her to the point of tears. All i could do was assure her that many people have that, including mom, and the only real remedy is not to eat wheat. I actively do hnot bring rye or barley into the home.(unless it`s hidden).

She had the Celiac blood work done in Aug of 2010
- her IgA was 0 U/ml.
- her IgG was 2 U/ml.
According the tests she does not have celiac, however I am willing to bet she sure has gluten sensitivity.
Also for example, when i give her gluten free cereal, with lactose free milk, even then she gets stomach upset.
This tells me she has milk issues also.

It`s my understanding that what allery/gluen sensitivity/celiac is often a partner to milk allergy.

Q-I am trying to understand what is the difference between gluetn sensitive and silent celiac?

Q-Do auditory hallucinations occur if a person is wheat allergic or do they strictly affect those with gluten /celiac issues?

Q-Also, what is the difference between milk/milk product allergic and allery to lactose? It seems that the former covers a wider spectrum , ie all forms of milk products.

Thank you in advance for your input! :)
