Cooking Tips #3 (Gluten-Free)

  • Xanthan gum can be substituted for guar gum.
  • Rice bran can be substituted for rice polish.
  • Sweet rice is a rice that is low (10 to 18 percent) in the starch compound called amylose.
  • White rice can NOT be substituted for sweet rice (it is not sticky enough ).
  • Tapioca flour works roughly the as tapioca starch.
  • GF breads should be beaten by hand with a wooden spoon or spatula. A whisk doesnt work - the batter should

    be a bit too thick for this. The mix master over-beats them and they get too fine a texture and tend to fall. I believe this is what happens in bread machines.
  • If you put 1 ½ tsp. of Cream of Tartar and 1 tsp. of baking soda in for two loaves, they do not interfere with the yeast but help the bread to rise and keep it up during baking.
  • Limit the use of potato, bean, arrowroot and tapioca flour to about 25 % maximum. If the bread is sticky when baked, cut these flours down further.

Gluten Free All-purpose Flour (mix well):

4 cups brown rice flour
1 ½ cups Sweet Rice Flour
1 cup Tapioca Starch Flour
1 cup Rice Polish
1 tablespoon Guar Gum

As mentioned before you said she had rashes, have they checked if that is DH? That is a positive sign of celiac and those with the DH manifestation can have problems getting a postive with the gut biopsy. Here are some links. https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ https://www.gluten.org/resources/getting-started/dermatitus-herpetiformis/ Please read up on this. She can get the rash tested for the disease if it is DH.

Thanks for your reply. I will get her retested. She hasn't had any gluten for a year and is very good at not eating it, but had some cake that night. It's so hard because the Dr who did the biopsy said there wasn't any damage so she can't be classed as Coeliacs. She had ten samples taken, but yes, like you say the intestines are huge.

Thank you for your informative reply. Yes I think you are right in that she is still getting dome cross contamination exposure through chopping boards, condiments etc. I will get her bloods redone to see if her levels have dropped and do a gluten challenge again. We all are on a whole foods diet, buy not all Gluten-Free. I find extended family difficult as because she had a negative biopsy they don't believe she could still possibly have it and aren't so careful with her. Thank you for the links, all very helpful.

Why do you make it so freaking hard to sign up? It's easier to find a replacement for rye bread!

I don't know if there is a simple answer to your question but I try to use "choose my plate" as a guide for my meals. https://www.choosemyplate.gov/MyPlate It basically suggests that when you sit down to a meal - 1/2 of your plate is fruits and veggies and the other 1/2 is dairy, carbs and protein. It's a really simple way to look at my meals and see if they are balanced enough. It also suggests getting very few calories in liquid form and avoiding snacking..... Good luck!
