Just recently diagnosed. I don't have any symptoms but my son did and was diagnosed first. He is only 6 and hasn't had the year of experiance with the good food. Any suggestions on the bread???

Yes! The absolute best gluten-free bread we've had is a homemade recipe found here: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=28633

The recipe above is versatile- I make hamburger rolls out of it, and dinner rolls as well. My son takes a PB&J sandwich on the hamburger roll to school every day. It's also forgiving- people make all kinds of substitutions, and it pretty much always works. The only substitution I make is, I use sorghum flour instead of garfava. The ingredient list may look intimidating, but trust me it's WORTH it. I keep the dry ingredients mixed in ziploc bags in the fridge, to pull out when I need it.

The best premade bread in MY opinion is Kinnikkinick, which is in the frozen section at Whole Foods.

What other things are you looking for? I have a really good pizza crust recipe I'll post if you want it. I also have a good chocolate cake/cupcake recipe- much cheaper than buying a mix.

I have two boys- both on a gluten-free diet. One is 4 1/2, the other will be 7 in a month.

IMHO the best premade bread is Kinnikinnick's cheese tapioca bread. It has to be toasted lightly though to taste good. You can get it shipped to you from www.kinnikinnick.com. Their donuts and bagels are also amazing, so stock up.

You may also want to try the Gluten Free Pantry's favorite sandwich bread. Its really good and its super easy to make.

I agree about the above bread recipe--it really is the best.

But a very close second (and a WAY faster and easier recipe!!!) is this (and start to finish, it is really 30 minutes or less!!!!!):

gluten-free--Flaxmeal Skillet Bread

This is adapted from The Wheat-Free Cook - Gluten-Free Recipes for Everyone

I have to also vote for Kinnickinick. My favorites are the Italian white bread and the Pizza shells. I use the pizza shells with hummous as well as pizza toppings. Be sure not to forget that almost all of our breads need to be nuked or toasted for the best texture. I didn't realize that the first year and my poor DD got to take sandwiches to school that fell to pieces with the first bite.

Our best luck with bread has been Chebe. We use the kind you add cheese to. Even the non-gluten-free eaters we know love the stuff!

We haven't had much luck with sandwich bread, but my daughter does like the white sandwich bread by kinnickinnick for toast.

The best bread I have had is Against the Grain. It comes in baguettes, bagels and roll. Whole Foods has it, at least the Boston ones do. It is made in Vermont. I believe the have a website. If not I can get you there info. It contains, tapioca starch, eggs, mozzerella and salt. Incredible. My son who is not gluten free won't eat any other bread excpect this one.!!

    In addition to celiac & rheumatoid arthritis, I also have Reynaud's syndrome. Mine occurs mostly with my fingers. Sometimes my toes get affected if it's really cold.  The grocery store is the worst for me. I hardly ever go in the grocery store without the Reynaud's hitting my fingers. I've tried wearing winter gloves but they don't seem to make one shred of difference. I've also tried using the Hot Hands hand warmer packets in each pocket & putting my hands in my warm pocket with th
    Thank you everyone I went for a second opinion just to re do the blood work hoping I can find out a answer. Last week I had the upper stomach pain again but no celery juice since November so I’m at a loss 😭 but all of my celiac panel including the genetics were negative just that ema which the second doctor said 1:20 is on the low side not sure if that’s true 
It is not a rash, but hives and swelling.  Some doctors think it is a separate autoimmune disorder or that it piggybacks on to others.  It is more commonly associated with autoimmune thyroiditis.   My last bout lasted for six months.  They appeared (from my head to my soles of my feet) every afternoon around 4:00 pm and resolved by morning.  Oddly, they start with abdominal pain.  That is my first clue and next an itchy head.  I was on a cocktail of antihistamines and attempted a low histam
