Australian Gluten Free

Recommended Posts

I like the Old time Bakery wraps. The brown ones are great, you can fold them without them breaking. The white ones make a nice pizza base but crack more than the Diegos ones when you try to fold them.

Has anyone here tried the Leda choc mint bisciuts? They look exactely like a mint slice. I would like to try but thought I'd ask here if any has tired them first.

I had seen the old time wraps at my local woolies but not recently, however theymay just be sold out as the are nearly always out of the country life bread as well.

I have also seen them in health food stores. Just make sure u get the gluten-free ones as the do ones that are only Wheat or yest free as well.

Has anyone tried the Popcorn and fruit bars from Go Natural? They seem like an odd thing but dont taste to bad.

I tried the Livwell Apple pies but didn't like them. Far too much sugar for my taste. Does anyone else find that gluten-free foods are extra high in sugar?

Hi Georgie, Yes, I think some companies add more sugar thinking it will improve the taste.OR, I recently met the author of Gluten-Free Baking Classics. Her name is Annalise G. Roberts. She was saying that wheat flour really has a taste to it, and when you use other flours to replace it the flavors come through strong because the other flours have a "transparent" taste. In other words not much flavor at all. So, when they are used other flavors(lemon, vanilla, sugar) that you would not have noticed so much with wheat flour seem to overpower the product. Maybe that is why things taste alot sweeter to you now than before. You have had all sorts of diagnosis. I know in the US doctors don't seem to know much about this and do the same thing to their patients that was done to you. Word of mouth and educating others to the signs and symptoms of gluten intolerance, wheat allergy, or celiac disease is what we all need to be doing. And bypassing a Doctor and get DNA testing done through Enterolabs. I also initially was tested with blood work for allergies. I had airborne allergies, but my Dr also ran it through food just to see, and I was sensitive to wheat, corn, peanuts and soy. Things I've eaten all my life. Looking back there were all sorts of episodes that now I know were celiac. There are 17 of us in my immediate family with the genes and the symptoms. All are now gluten free.

The trouble with the apple pies I had was the filling - the apple was barely recognisable as a Bramley apple ! It was like eating sugar, flavoured with essence :blink: I am having a hard time finding food to eat as I have Insulin Resistance and the sugar overload from these types of foods is too much. :(
