Topics I've Started

Genetic Testing

25 April 2005 - 07:38 PM

I'm new to all this. My daughter and myself recently tested positive for gluten sensitivity thru entero labs and are now gluten-free. I'm beginning to think I should spring for genetic testing to help determine if we are predisposed to Celiac (and thus other auto-immune issues). I'm curious if entero's genetic testing is different from genetic testing I might get thru a GP or GI doc. Is there some reason I should choose one over the other? IS there value in knowing the genetics when I already know that I have gluten sensitivity (which is genetic and is an auto-immune disorder)?

I'd appreciate hearing people's thoughts on this. It is so confusing to sort thru all the info.


Doubling Bread Recipes

24 April 2005 - 11:04 AM

I love Bette Hagman's Butter Based Bread recipe and wanted to double it (as she suggests) but I don't know how much yeast to use. In her newer books she lists a small recipe and large recipe for breads and uses the same amount of yeast in both. But the largest recipe I found was with 4 cups of flour (she uses 2 1/4 tsp yeast). Doubling the Butter Basted bread will have 6 cups of flour. Should I use the 1 1/2 Tblsp of yeast, or up it a little?
