Bobs Red Mill gluten-free Bread Mix

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am new to the gluten-free/cf diet. I have been following the diet very carefully and cautiously for almost a week now. I cannot return to eating gluten and dairy as it has caused many health issues for me. anyway, i made bobs red mill gluten-free whole grain bread today. Had half a slice. 10-15 minutes later, had stomach cramps and diarreah. Has anyone had a similar experience? could it have been the fiber content?

For many recently gluten free persons all grains can potentially cause problems. I would recommend that you eat pure simple, unprocessed foods until healing has taken place and reintroduce processed grains gradually. Rice is usually well tolerated by most, preferably brown for the nutrition and fiber.

I'm also just about a week and a half into gluten free and had the same reaction to a Bob's Red Mill product the other day. Also to some gluten free spaghetti. I then took out everything processed, dairy, and soy. A day or two later, it seemed I became intolerant of EVERYTHING! It didn't matter what it was. My theory is that the body has to sort of "detox" the gluten if it's sensitive to it, kind of like a poison...but that's just my theory. I'm just starting to feel a bit better! :D If it gets worse like most people say, I can't imagine how my body's going to respond after several months and then an accidental glutening! :rolleyes: Hope you feel better soon and don't keep getting worse like I did, but if so...hang in there! It WILL get better!!

Blessings!

I can eat Bob's Red Mill bread made with the mix every day with no problems. But other brands of bread, pasta, etc. just kill me. You'll probably just have to do quite a bit of experimenting to find what works for you. Unfortunately, these gluten issues affect every single one of us differently. :)

I have the same problem with BRM whole-grain mix, and I've been gluten-free for three months now. I think I'll relinquish the rest of the loaf I just made to my boyfriend, who I think secretly believes I'm holding out on him with the good bread. :) I don't have problems with Pamela's or Gluten Free Pantry mixes.

it took me six months before i could eat anything processed without being sick. 6 months! so give yourself a few more weeks of eating fruits and veggies and other whole foods and maybe your stomach and intestines can heal. i tried certified gluten free oats at 6 months and they made me sick.... at 2 and a half years i tried them again and now i can eat them with no issues. some things will not be okay until you are further into the healing process. it gets better though. i reintroduced dairy at 10 months i believe and havent had any dairy issues since then. good luck!

Are you using "post" celiac utensils as opposed to pre-celiac utensils? I threw out all my wooden spoons, pitted plastics and anything that I was afraid couldn't be scoured completely clean of gluten.

Thank you all for your replies. I did go through all the utensils-fortunately most were stainless steel. I guess I will just eventually figure out what I can and cannot tolerate. I have been gluten-free/CF since 8/5/09 and will tell you I feel really good! :)

Last I knew Bobs Red Mill processes their gluten free oats in their gluten free facility. If you are one of us celiacs who is also sensitive to oats, you may be reacting to cross contamination from oats. I avoid Bobs Red Mill products for this reason.
