    Panasonic SD-YR2500 Automatic Gluten-Free Bread Maker Review

    I've now been gluten-free for over 20 years, yet I've never broken down and purchased a bread machine, nor have I ever used one. It should go without saying that I am also eating very mediocre gluten-free bread.

    Recently I was given the opportunity to review Panasonic's new SD-YR2500 Automatic Gluten-Free Bread Maker. This is the first bread maker made by Panasonic specifically for making gluten-free breads. Needless to say, I was very excited to finally get to test out this machine and discover why they are so popular among those who are on a gluten-free diet.

    Panasonic SD-YR2500 Automatic Gluten-Free Bread MakerThe machine arrived undamaged, which was no surprise given how well it was packaged—it was double boxed, and the inside display box included molded Styrofoam that protected the machine very well. It took only a few minutes to unpack and set it up.

    My next step was selecting a recipe to use—I went with one that has been on Celiac.com for many years, and is highly rated. I decided to substitute the different flours used in the recipe with Bob's Red Mill 1-1 Baking Flour, as I didn't have the many different flours listed in the original recipe. Basically I used a highly modified version of a recipe that I've never tried before, and made it in a bread machine that I've never used before—how well could this possibly turn out, right?

    Scott Adams' Gluten-Free Bread Machine BreadI hope you are surprised to learn that, all things considered, it was easily the best gluten-free bread I've ever made, and was light years beyond the packaged stuff I've been eating for years (the company shall remain nameless, but you're probably eating it too!). I think the scientific control that the bread machine offers, for example, the timed mixing and kneading processes, the long rising time and the perfectly even baking temperature help make even a total amateur baker like myself look like a professional.

    My experience with this gluten-free bread machine left me with confidence and the feeling that I can easily improve on an already improvised recipe, and have fun experimenting with different versions of it (I'm going for a rosemary loaf next time!). Overall Panasonic's SD-YR2500 was very easy to use, and the nice thing about this bread machine is that it will do all of the hard work for you. Just add the ingredients select the ideal setting and turn it on. You'll never get sore kneading bread by hand again.

    My first experience with Panasonic's SD-YR2500 was an excellent one, and it made me wonder: Why have I waited so long for excellent gluten-free bread?

    How did it toast? Bread needs to be toasted sometimes at least for that flavor, scent and texture.

    The bread I made toasted perfectly!

    I have used a regular bread machine to make gluten-free bread since I was diagnosed seven years ago. All my bread turns out great and has much more flavor than frozen and fresh breads from a store. Although I use a few good recipes, I've had good success with boxed mixes and my bread machine. And, as a bonus, the house smells wonderful.

    I have a Cuisinart Convection bread maker and have been making gluten-free bread for years. Making your own bread is far superior to store bought and more economical. I use Pamela's bread mix when I'm in a hurry and need bread. It is the best mix and can be used to make many different variety of breads (see the package for more information.) You can buy it at Whole Foods. If your serious about being gluten-free and want amazing bread do yourself a favor and get a good bread machine. It will change your life. Happy baking!

    I noticed they have a Cybermonday coupon code on Panasonic's website today which brings it down to about $235.

     

    Still a bundle but I'm seriously considering it. My (non-gluten-free) husband says he would make it my Christmas present. Do I pull the trigger?

    This recipe comes to us from Jessie James of Canada.
    Here is my very favorite recipe which has evolved over many years of trial and error:
    2 ½ cups brown rice flour
    2 cups white rice flour
    ½ cup bean flour (or potato or tapioca or white rice flour)
    ¼ cup garbanzo bean flour
    2 + 2 tablespoon sugar
    1 ½ teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    ½ cup flax seed (fresh ground in blender)
    1 packet of traditional yeast granules
    2 eggs (room temp)
    ½ cup oil or melted butter
    Method: Put 2 Tablespoon sugar in 2 cups warm water and stir. Add yeast and stir. Leave in a warm place for a few minutes to develop yeast. Sift dry ingredients into large mixing bowl, except flax. Grease two bread pans (13 x 4 ½ is good). Add flax to dry ingredients - do not sift it. Mix flax in well. Add two eggs and ½ cup of oil or melted butter to warm yeast mixture. Whisk until frothy. Pour into dry ingredients and mix. Add another cup of warm water. Batter should be like a thick cake batter - just pourable. Add water a bit at a time and continue stirring to get desired consistency. Do not over beat but be sure all ingredients are thoroughly mixed with no lumps.
    Pour into greased pans and set in warm place to rise for about an hour. Bake at 350 degrees F for one hour. Test with cake tester which should come out clean. Sides should be pulling away from pan. Do not under bake. Up to 20 min. extra wont hurt it. Turn pans upside down on cake racks for 5 min. Remove bread from pan and let cool upside down on rack. When cool, slice with topside down and freeze.
    This makes about 20 slices per loaf. They separate easily with the point of a knife when frozen. To use, toast in gluten-free toaster or on cookie sheet in oven. I toast them 3 times to get right degree of browning. Oven works best.

    This recipes comes to us from Kathy Scholz.
    In a small bowl combine:
    ½ cup warm water
    2 teaspoons sugar
    4 teaspoons dry yeast granules
    Set aside and let stand for 15 minutes
    2 cups white rice flour
    2 cups tapioca flour
    ¼ cup sugar
    4 teaspoons xanthan gum
    2/3 cup dry milk
    1 ½ teaspoons salt
    Combine the above six ingredients in a large bowl (use largest mixing bowl).
    1 ½ cups water
    4 tablespoons melted butter or oil
    1 teaspoon gluten-free vinegar
    3 eggs
    Mix above dry ingredients in a large bowl, and the four liquid ingredients in a small bowl, then add the butter mixture and yeast mixture to the dry ingredients. Beat on high for 2 minutes. Use two small greased bread pans, as one large one seems to cause the bread to rise too high and become like a mushroom. Allow to rise in pan, then bake at 350 degrees 20 - 25 minutes. Adjust time depending on size of loaves. Can also be made as sandwich rolls, as indicated below: use small individual pie tins (about 4 across, purchase in paper goods supply store, round out the bottom crease with your thumb and finger, or press the tin down on the bottom of a jar the appropriate size to round out the crease, these may be reused time and time again) spray the tins with cooking oil, divide dough to make about 12 sandwich rolls, place pie tins on two cookie sheets, allow to rise, if desired brush with a mixture of egg and water, sprinkle sesame seed or poppy seeds over top, before baking. Bake until nicely browned in 15 -20 minutes.

    Celiac.com 12/29/2015 - Regular Girl is a gluten-free prebiotic fiber with a probiotic blend that is specifically designed "for the woman on the go." The beautiful and highly-functional packaging that it comes in makes this point clear—15 convenient serving sized packets are included in an athletic-style, non-breakable plastic bottle—which makes it very easy to take with you to the office, on vacation, or anywhere else you want to go (it is also available in 30-day supply bulk powder).
    Each Regular Girl serving packet contains 6 grams of the company's proprietary "Sunfiber," which is designed to eliminate any gas or bloating that can be caused by other dietary fiber supplements. This supplement is unique because it also contains 8 billion CFU of Bifidobacterium lactis to help normalize bacterial gut flora and improve calcium absorption.
    Regular Girl packets are very easy to use—just mix one with 6-8 ounces of water or any non-carbonated beverage. What I really liked about them is that they aren't flavored, so they don't contain any artificial flavors or colors, which makes them very easy to drink by themselves or with your favorite beverage or smoothie.
    Overall, this is the perfect dietary fiber supplement for anyone with celiac disease, and especially for women who appreciate well-designed packaging which allows you to take them with you wherever you want to go.

    The first thing I noticed about Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Ona Cookies was their beautiful packaging.
    Ona cookies are "paleo friendly," which means they are made with high quality, nutritious ingredients such as almond and coconut flours, honey and shredded coconut.
    Coconut was the first thing I tasted when I bit into one, which was followed by an accent of cocoa from the cocoa nibs. Their taste made it obvious that these cookies are packed with fabulous ingredients that also happen to be very healthy, and they are perfect for those following a gluten-free and/or paleo diet.
    If you want a healthy cookie that won't leave you with regrets, be sure to try Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Ona Cookies.

    Celiac.com 05/01/2018 - When you get the awful news that a loved one is impacted with a diagnosis such as celiac disease, you want to do everything in your power to help them! So, when one of my family members was diagnosed with celiac, I made it my personal goal to learn everything I could about it. I also looked for ways that I could help my family member and anyone else that was affected in the world with the same diagnosis.
    As an oral care scientist, I’d long dreamed of creating my own oral care line, with products that could help aide in the overall well-being of individuals. I envisioned creating products everyone could use, without sacrificing quality or price - products that avoided the use of harsh chemicals and abrasives. My dream was manifested in the form of SprinJene®, an oral care line I launched after years of research and development. SprinJene® toothpastes feature a patented formula of black seed oil and zinc, and are certified Gluten-Free, Vegan, Cruelty-Free, Halal and Kosher. SprinJene toothpastes are now offered in two product lines: SprinJene Original® and SprinJene Natural® (featuring options for adults and kids). 
    While toothpaste isn’t ingested in large quantities, some will always remain in the mouth after brushing. For individuals with celiac, even a little bit of gluten can be harmful. Most people don’t realize that in some toothpastes gluten can be used as a stabilizer, binder or thickener. SprinJene's toothpastes are certified gluten-free by the International Certification Services (ICS). In addition, all of the toothpaste formulas are tested after they’re produced to make certain that they totally gluten-free before products hit store shelves.

    So i recently had a baby and 3 months postpartum I started celery juicing and after juicing my stomach would be in so much pain. So I stopped it for a while and a whole month no pain or issues.

    I am celiac and eat gluten-free, DF, SF and sunflower free because I'm highly reactive to all 4. I discovered about a year and a half ago that I would have severe and immediate GI reactions, similar to as if I ate dairy, to anything with sunflower/safflower products in it, but I think that's when using the oil became more prevalent too. Strange because I loved sunflower seeds as a kid. I've also linked it to places I've eaten out where everything was fine and then discovered they started using s
