Does gluten-free Bread Make Anyone Else Sick?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Everytime I eat gluten-free bread I get sick as if I've been glutened, does thus happen to anyone else? I've had Betty Crocker gluten-free mixes and gluten-free waffles with no problem. I don't eat any if this often but the gluten-free bread from the frozen section makes me sick, I've had Three different kind all with the same effect, any insight?!

Obviously, you're not eating the Cinnamon Raisin!  I just checked my Udi's and Rudi's.  I can't think what you'd react to except on of the grains.  Did they use quinoa?  I made some porridge for breakfast yesterday and ate the leftovers today and got that "gluten" feeling (burping, rock in stomach).  So, even though it's gluten free, I'm staying away for now (and it's so good with cocoa, honey, vanilla, soy milk and banana!)  

 

Made my first loaf of whole grain gluten-free bread from a Bob's Red Mill package.  It's dense, like rye and full of whole grains.  Unfortunately, it has onion powder and I react strongly to garlic.  I bought it for my hubby before I was diagnosed.  Ugh!  But, now I think I'm ready to tackle gluten-free yeast breads.

A difference between hamburger buns and bread?  Are you using a contaminated toaster?

 

Start looking for another sensitivity.  (Usually the top 8 allergens are a good place to start Eggs, soy, dairy~ down to casein protein)  Now consider some are sensitive to xanthan gum, guar gum, and pea protein is showing to be more of a reactive allergen for some people.

It's easy to test yeast.  Put some in  a glass of water with a little sugar.  Wait until it activates and then drink it.  You don't have to guess about these things.  Just test them on yourself.

 

Most gluten-free breads don't sit well with me because they have soy or nightshades (potato starch) or dairy.

Yeah I'm sure if I eat (or drink) it then id know for sure but I hate feeling sick and have zero time for it! Think I'm just gonna steer clear of gluten-free bread for awhile. I'm pretty sure it's the yeast though, I had some gluten-free pretzels with peanut butter and felt funky afterwards read the ingredients and there was yeast.

Does anyone else have an issue with yeast?

I have narrowed down that the bread is making me sick as well. two weeks ago I had Udies Hot Dog Buns, last Sunday a peanut butter & jelly sandwich on Udies bread and yesterday an pizza made by Udies...each time Bingo I was sick the next morning. Symtoms are not as severe but still tough to get through the morning. Im thinking it might be the Xtham Gum but not really sure as Ive only been Gluten free for 2 months.

You may be sensitive to corn, corn starch, or sorghum or oatmeal...I am. Prolamins are a problem, and even non-grain quinoa has been tested to show a gluten like protein with reactivity, even though it is not at all in the prolamin family (one type of quinoa only). I eat Udi's bread without any problem. However, I am able to tolerate rice (rice has very little of the family of proteins that is the issue). Some of the most sensitive celiacs cannot handle rice OR they do not buy gluten free rice (CC issue). Please be patient enough to test each food carefully. If the food is important enough and you suspect it is CC, there are test kits that allow you to sample it in the kitchen ($15 a shot, unless bought in bulk). I found a lot of corn foods were cross contaminated (although some commercialized corn has a molecule that looks like wheat gluten, apparently). Then there's the lactose issue, common among celiacs, and salicylates (due to the gut damage). Oh...and I have a separate toaster. If you think wheat is in everything in the US food chain, try corn and its derivatives!

We just found out after 6 month of trying all different things that our celiac daughter has very bad reaction to UDI bread as well as Tinkyada pasta. Her reaction is excessive burping and stomach aches.  We would like to hear from other people with similar problems. Can you safely eat any other gluten-free  bread/pasta/baked goods? Are home baked goods bad for you as well? Is there a better choice for gluten-free flour? Any suggestion is appreciated.

I eventually narrowed my intolerance to store-bought bread and crackers to Xanthan gum. I switched to products using guar gum. I use Pamela's flour though I am sure there are others on the market. But I only bake cupcakes and cookies. I just gave up bread. I must say that my husband (gluten-free for 13 years) has never had an issue with commercial breads.

Oh, I have an issue with quinoa too.

Perhaps more time to heal is needed for your daughter. At diagnosis, we tend to jump into the gluten-free diet replacing our old foods (bread) with gluten-free versions and we forget that we are dealing with damaged guts. Lots of foods are new and hard to digest.

To be honest, I have not tested Xantham gum or quinoa in a long time. I was diagnosed with diabetes last Jaunuary and gave up lots of carbs, including bread and pasta. My tummy is happier too!

As far as pasta goes, I do not know that brand. It seems like it contains only rice. Try a corn pasta? Or try just whole foods (not processed) for a while.

Tinkyada pasta is just rice - does she have an issue with plain rice, too?  If not, maybe its what you put on the pasta?

That is what we thought. We stopped using tomato sauce thinking it is GERD. Then we stopped parmesan cheese in pesto. Then we gave up pesto all together. Then she just ate plane pasta with olive oil - bad reaction. Then we tried corn pasta - looks like she didn't have a reaction but we need to try several times before we can come to conclusion.
I am trying to pin point the actual offender. I hope someone knows something that I don't. :)

Have you tried plain rice?  Just a few bites of plain rice cooked with water -no oil, no veggies, no chicken.  That would tell you if rice is the ingredient of concern.

Yes, we eat rice once or twice a week: white or brown. Both are fine. No symptoms. How could it be? I asked our doctor who is a main GI doctor in Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia in a special celiac department and she didn't say anything.

YES.  Please stay way from gluten-free bread.  The latest research is showing that all grains can cause a reaction similar to gluten. Rice especially, which is usually in those processed gluten-free breads.  I'm not sure why you haven't had a reaction with the Betty Crocker mixes because those contain rice as well, they destroy my stomach, but here is some info on why we should try to avoid all grains.

Please watch this video!  This website has helped me sooo much in feeling almost 100% better with no weird reactions anymore.  This video is a lecture explains why you should avoid rice and all grain.

I have never tried gluten-free frozen bread, but over the weekend I tried Bob Mill's cornbread mix.  It was so good I thought I was going to die, even my non gluten-free husband loved it.  But it made me sick.  Boo hoo.  I think I will just stay away from bread all together.

I think that I was having an issue back then because of the damage I still had and possibly to soy. I can eat frozen bread now. I can't however eat Bob's Red Mill anything. Every time I make any of those products I get sick.

Many people cannot tolerate the bean flour base in Bobs Red Mill Mixes and flours.  That is probably why they came out with their new cup for cup flour, lots of people thought the other stuff tasted weird and was too different.  Good for them to keep up with the gluten-free times, though.

It did taste a little weird. I am glad there are companies that care enough to keep improving their products and making life easier for us all.

I think I know now what it is in the bread that makes my daughter sick. Looks like she is reacting to brown rice. I still need to confirm that but she ate brown rice two days in a row and had some reaction. I checked all the gluten-free breads, waffles, etc  that we have at home and they all have brown rice as a main ingredient. We know that she can't eat brown rice pasta. She seems to be ok with Schar pasta that doesn't have brown rice. Schar bread we will have to try. It doesn't have brown rice  but has psyllium husk that can also give her discomfort. Does anybody know a gluten-free brand that makes bread without brown rice or psyllium husk?

Look up Xanthan Gum side effects.  I have been having a bad reaction to certain gluten free baked goods and had no idea what could be causing it.  So I did a little research comparing ingredient lists of  products I have had reactions to and Xanthan Gum seems to be the common denominator.

Two things that definitely brought on very bad reactions for me are Subway's gluten free roll and Mi-Del's gluten free ginger snaps.
