I Need Help Deciding What Flours To Get To Make Gluten Free Bread

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I need to change my family over to gluten free bread, so I don't have to deal with so much cross contamination.

I have a bread maker, so I will be using that, but I need to know, what flours work best for gluten free bread?.

I am looking for these qualities in my bread:

Softness texture.

Pliable (easy to bend around a hot dog without breaking etc. )

Taste similar to regular gluten bread.

Easy to cut.

At some point, I'd like to do sour dough.

So, what flours exactly should I stock up on that are 100% gluten free?.

Thank you guys.

This does not use a bread machine but it's GREAT gluten-free bread!!!!! The only thing that will break when you bend it around a hot dog is the crust. Otherwise it fits all your criteria.

The basic flour blend recipe is there & scroll down for the bread recipe. It's best if you use gluten-free bread pans as they are higher than traditional bread pans & you won't have to make the tin foil collar. You can get those pans form King Arthur flour.

This one:

Believe me, these pans are worth it!

If you would like to get a good idea of how gluten-free bread handles versus regular bread (easier and more like a wet dough) you can pick up a gluten-free bread mix and give it a try.  Lots come with yeast packet included. I highly recommend the King Arthur Flour gluten-free Bread Mix- my gluten eater husband willingly eats it and it freezes and thaws well without the need for toasting.  But there are a lot of good recipes out there and on the forum, so feel free to search through and start with one of those.

I just got a zojirushi bread maker as a wedding gift. I made my first loaf today. The flours I used were sorghum, rice bran, brown rice flour, along with corn starch, xanthan gum, yeast, molasses, honey, salt, eggs and water, vegetable oil. I used a recipe from a gluten free bread machine recipe book. I had to play around with the custom settings on the bread maker since gluten free bread doesn't need 3 rises but it came out great! I'll let you know more as I go.. I have a feeling I will be baking a lot of bread now!

I'm a bit late, but Gluten Free on a Shoestring has some AMAZING recipes on her blog.  She has a few cookbooks, too; one is all about breads.  I haven't tried them myself yet, but she has a few different flour mixes to use.  Her instructions are super easy to follow, and she has a million different kind of breads to make (including hawiian rolls, texas roadhouse style rolls, french bread, cinnamon rolls, etc.).  I've tried several of her other recipes, and with a tiny bit of tweaking (I use a premade flour, so sometimes I add a bit more liquid or something), they turn out really really really good.

I am also suffering from gluten allergy. I used to buy gluten free bread of different kinds i was have been mostly using rice gluten free bread but i must admit that it is a bit expensive and then i started preparing one for myself. 
Here is the recipe:
half cup olive oil 
2 cups water
2 cups rye flour ( it is great plus very affordable and healthy)
I don't usually add extra additives and salt but you can. 
What I add at the end are sunflower seeds 
Easy and delicious

Eliza!  

I must point out that RYE contains gluten!  This is dangerous for someone who has celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

I noticed that in your previous post that you went gluten free in 2014 because you were starting  to become a diabetic.  As a diabetic myself, simply going gluten free will not prevent diabetes.  Lowering carbohydrates is required and replacing them with more healthy  fats.  I can tell you that I rarely eat gluten-free bread.  It will raise my blood glucose just as fast a candy bar.  

How are you managing your diabetes now?  Just diet alone?  Any meds?  Are you a type 1 or 2?  I can recommend a website called  "Blood Sugar 101" that helps explain diabetes and how to manage it.  It contains some great resources and all the content is free.  There is a book that the author sells, but it is the same information.  Handy for those who do not like the Internet (like my Uncle).  

I hope this helps!

might be OK for you, but not for Celiacs.

 

This recipe is not for people with Celiac disease. It contains RYE which has gluten in any form!

Thanks for quoting and for your useful pieces of advice. My doctor discovered that i have secret sugar during my pregnancy. He diagnosed me only diet but very strict one and it contained little quantities of rye flower but i am only using Vitalia rye flour which is processed and contains no gluten.

processing a gluten grain into a flour does not remove the gluten.

if you think you have diabetes, see your doctor for testing and medications and information.  

 

You seem to think that Celiac disease and diabetes are the same thing and they are not.  You can do a simple Internet search and read some basic info about both.
