Store-bought gluten-free Sourdough Bread?

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

This is going to sound weird - but I thought I'd ask. My sister told me on the phone last night that her neighbor (who's brother has celiac disease) just bought plain-old sourdough bread off the shelf at the store and that her brother could eat it. That he actually requested this. She didn't know who made it (she was going to ask for me), but she said it was on the shelf like "any other package of bread...not specially made". Has anyone ever heard of this? I haven't. And I'm not talking about a specialty store bread either...just something you can get at Pick-N-Save or Walmart or Costco...one of those stores.

I just don't see how it's possible. I went directly to the grocery store last night after talking with her and the first loaf I pulled off the shelf had "unbleached wheat flour" as the first ingredient. :o I think there is a mixup in information somewhere between my sister and her neighbor. If there was sourdough bread I could pull off the shelf (like Wonder Bread and all the others), I'd be happy to make my husband 100 sandwiches! :P

Just thought I'd ask.

Thanks for reading!

There are a few threads on this. Here's one of them:

It's interesting research, and I think there's something to it, but I also think most people here would disagree with me.

Thank you Mango04.

I just don't know what to think. I'd love to buy this for him...but I don't want to make him sick. I see the thought process has been around for a while - that first post was from 2/06. But I'm glad you led me in the right direction.

Thank you!

    The biopsy would need to come from your small intestine. That's where the damage is done from celiac. But you need to be on a gluten diet for the tests to be accurate. How long have you been on the PPIs? My hubby had severe acid reflux issues ...
    The doctor did 8 biopsy from the top of my throat to the bottom of my stomach....he thought I had H-Hyploi..but I did not. I am beginning to think they are missing my issues. He gave me some pump inhibitors, that's it. I have an appt. with...
    Your doctor would run a blood tests (ask for full celiac panel) and then confirm with endoscopy and biopsy celiac doesn't always show up on endoscopy and sometimes the biopsy is what confirms.
