Garbo Toast Bread: For Those About to Toast, Garbo Salutes You!

Celiac.com 07/30/2007 - Mmmmm...Toast. The smell of toast filling the room in the morning.

A perfectly toasted piece of white bread transformed to a perfectly golden brown at the center and at the edges, an aroma packed with memories, evoking  deep sighs and wistful smiles.

Toast is the perfect comfort food. It's also something I've practically given up on bread since I became gluten-free. So, when my Garbo gluten free, dairy free Toast bread arrived, I tried not to get too excited.  I'd never tried it and was taking a stab at joy.

Most of the breads I've tried required toasting first to be anywhere near palatable, and even then, the ones I've tried have been too dense, too chewy, way too sticky, and distinctly lacking in flavor. Most of all, I've yet to find one that gives off the memory-rich aroma of freshly toasted white bread.

Until now. Garbo Toast Bread has officially rocked my world! Gluten-Free and dairy-free, Garbo Toast bread brings the joy of toast back to the world of the gluten-free diet.

First, I tried it straight from the toaster and slathered with butter. It was perfectly chewy, and not at all sticky like so many gluten-free breads I've tried and given up on. If I hadn't known it was gluten-free, I would have had to double check. It looked and smelled and tasted like some kind of exotic European white bread.

Later on, I experimented. Since I still eat dairy, I toasted a slice and tried it with a soft-boiled egg! I was in heaven.For lunch I toasted two slices, buttered them, then added a slice of cheese. I then grilled it gently over a medium heat for the most wonderful toasty, gluten free grilled cheese sandwich. The next morning I had a slice with butter and my favorite jam. More heaven. I went through my first bag of Garbo Toast bread in two days! I promptly ordered not one, not two, but four more loaves!

With their gluten free, dairy free Toast bread, Garbo  has brought the joy of toast...warm, aromatic, perfectly golden, perfectly  chewy, perfectly yummy toast back to my previously untoasty gluten-free  life.

For those us whose lives are dark without toast, and  only a bit brighter with our previous toast choices, we salute Garbo!

For those about to toast, Garbo salutes you!

I get it on the back of my right leg and right elbow. I have no idea why it's just limited to the right side of my body. My family care doctor prescribed me a steroid and steroid cream. The oral steroid has only made me grouchy and fat! I'm probably going to stop taking it since it hasn't helped the rash much. Good luck getting rid of yours!

Had The rash for years before I went gluten-free. My rash took about a month or two to heal and vanish. When I get glutened the rash areas start to itch a bit- besides being constipated it's my only clue! good luck and be patient

Kaiser offers the full panel, but a primary care MD can not order it -- only a GI. Again, a visual is not needed. Damage is usually severe if it can be seen visually (e.g. Scalloping, etc.). Villi are microscopic though. When you got the referral, you probably should have found a GI on your own by searching through the Kaiser directory and finding one who has some mention of celiac disease in his bio. Too late, but that is kind of how it works. Your PCP does not know the GI docs. The scheduler just makes appointments. So, now, that you have been referred to a GI, you can probably schedule another appointment on your own by passing your PCP. Wait first for the pathologist's report. They might not put it on the patient portal, so get a hard copy for your records. If it is negative and they took four or biopsies, you will have your answer. Then you can consider trialing the diet. If they did not take enough samples, ask for the DGP and EMA tests, including the control test IGA deficiency (which affects 10% of celiacs, but do not quote me on this). You could wait a few years until you think damage is severe enough to find. celiac disease can be hard to diagnose. It can develop at anytime. Don't forget you might have a gluten sensitivity too and not celiac disease. Kaiser responds well to requests in writing. Try the patient portal first before a registered letter. If they are not following the standard level of care, they are at risk for a lawsuit. Be nice. Say something lame in your letter like, "We had such a nice short visit, so I forgot to ask ....blah, blah, blah." My own relatively new PCP is still learning about celiac disease. That is okay. At least she has an open mind.

It is gluten free...I eat it regularly and have had no issues and it tastes yummy. ?

A quick update: I emailed my primary doctor and she is on the same page as the GI doctor, saying the Endoscopy looks normal. Even before we've gotten the biopsy back. By the way, I should mention I'm dealing with Kaiser in the Bay Area, CA and everything I've found about Kaiser on these forums is horrible and similar to my own experience. I specifically asked about all the components of the full celiac panel and that I would like to get it and all she said was: "The lab tests are not perfect. Although they may indicate an increased risk for celiac, they are not as specific as the biopsy." So, now we should just ignore the positive IgG? How am I supposed to know if I'm IgA deficient if they don't test for that? I replied and asked again and she said that Kaiser doesn't offer the full panel. Why not? And I said I want vitamin and iron tests and no reply to that yet.
