Tapioca Free Bread?

23 March 2007 - 09:25 AM

Has anyone found bread that is gluten free AND tapioca free? Most of the gluten-free products i eat contain tapioca but I can only tolerate tapioca in small to moderate amounts.

Thanks!

Genetics

From my personal observations, it seems that the gene for celiac/gluten intol. is passed on from parent to child more often than not. Has anyone read any studies on the chances of passing down the gene?

I am curious because I don't know if I should ask my brother to get tested. I was never tested, but my health has improved greatly since going gluten-free. A few years ago my dad figured out that he was gluten intolerant from a blood test. (he was never really sick, but he says he feels better when he doesn't eat gluten). Here's his side of the family at a glance:
mother - colon cancer
brother - colon cancer
other brother - schizophrenia
my guess is that they all have the gene.

My brother (17) doesn't show any signs of a gluten intolerence. but i'm curious if he even has a chance of NOT having the gene! Maybe he's asymptomatic like the majority of my family? Or maybe gluten is fine for him?

he already has a problem with dairy (but eats it anyway :blink: ) sooo i don't want to go preaching to him about gluten intolerence until i get some more facts.

Autolyzed Yeast

I was looking at panera bread's ingredients online to see if any of their soups and salads are safe and autolyzed yeast was listed a few times. anyone know?

thanks!

Gum

I know that chewing gum can contain gluten. does anyone know of any safe brands? I like Orbit --mmm...so good, but my guess is that it probably has gluten.

EDIT - ooops, sorry, i just found the thread on gum. Plesantly surprising! :)

Is anyone out there? I haven't noticed any Wisconsinites on here. My name is Elaine, I'm 19 and a college student. It would be great to make some friends who understand!
