Garbanzo & Fava Flour

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I bought Bob's Red Mill Garbanzo & Fava Flour to make grain free honey grahams and something else that called for it.

I made the grahams last weekend and they turned out really good. But I had stomach problems during the week not like a glutening but just upset stomach.

Has anyone else reacted to this flour?

The only other thing new I had this week was Regular Velveeta (which I have had in the past with no problem) and David Sunflower Kernels (not shelled).

The Sunflower Seed Ingredients: Sunflower Kernels, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil and Salt (made by ConAgra Foods).

I have been eating yellow apples lately and am normally fine but I think maybe I had one that bothered me for some reason. I guess I am wanting to blame the apple but in the back of my head I am thinking it was the Garbanzo/Fava Flour.

Any thoughts???

Thank you

My mom has a classic allergy response to the Bob's Red Mill bread, which is made with the garbonzo/fava combo. We're guessing it's the fava beans, but for fear of a more severe reaction we haven't tried to narrow it down for sure.

I've heard that there's some kind of fava intolerance people can have that's genetic, but I don't know much about it.

Sorry that's not a lot of help. It does seem like Celiacs tend to have problems with more foods than just gluten.

i made a gluten free bread from bob's red mill that contained these bean flours and it upset my stomach too...and made me naseous! i think those bean flours just dont agree with some of us... not like a glutening like you pointed out, but just an upset feeling like something isnt quite right

doesnt help much either, sorry. my only advice is to try to find a sub or try a different brand of bean flour, though they are pricey to buy and use only a small amount of

Thank you very much for both of your replies. I thought it was the flour but wasn't sure if it was one of the new things I ate as well so I cut the other stuff out and am re-trying the graham crackers I made (had half of the dough in the freezer). I thought I started to react to it but wasn't sure will see. At least it isn't a complete waste if I am b/c hubby likes the crackers/cookies so could just make them for him. The recipe did have a replacement for the flour -- said to use brown rice so at least I have that, that I can try next time b/c they are really good.

Thanks again.

We use small to moderate amounts of their fava bean flour all the time and have never had any problems. However, I think the garbanzo bean flour is horrible! :o
