Jules Gluten Free Flour

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Just signed up for this forum, so forgive me if this is not posted in the appropriate place! I am an extremely super, super sensitive celiac so my question is directed at other super sensitives. Have any of you tried Jules gluten free flour? If so, did you react to it? I am cooking a Thanksgiving dinner this year and having some flour I can use would be very helpful. I have tried several of the pre-packaged varieties out there and reacted to them. I also make my own rice flour a lot, however it comes out gritty and coarse, and is not useful for baking. Jules website states that they use very strict manufacturing procedures, so it sounds promising. However, at 19.95 per bag, I'd like to have a better idea about whether I will have to throw it out or not! Anyone who has tried it please let me know..Thanks

I usually bake with several flours and have one flour blend in my cupboard which I have also not been satisfied with.....I have ordered Jules Flour and I should be getting my flour next week.....I was on the fence with the price too..BUT when I calculated out what I was paying for my usual Flour Blend it calculated out (with free shipping) to be cheaper, remember her bags are 5lbs and not 2 or 3 like some other flour blends.....She also offers a sample pack for you to try to see if you like it......Jules herself has Celiac so I think she would be very savvy with Cross Contamination Issues. I wanted a good flour blend to make all those Holiday Goodies I used to make without all that GRITTY and COARSE feeling you get from other flour blends. Jules Flour has a special buy 3 5lb bags and get free shipping. SO I thought I would try it!

I will let you know how it works...I do alot of baking so we will see!

There are several very high end flours that are wonderful. IE: Better Batter FLour: Meister's Flour:Domata Living FLour: Authenic FLour has super fine brown rice or super fine white rice flour. I use this to make Annalise Roberts flour blend for use with her wonderful cookbook. It is the best...Jules FLour blend.

When you buy preblended flours you do not have to add xanthan gum . Plus it is a correct blend, much easier for them to do the math instead of me trying to figure out how much of this or that!

It would be hard to say if you will react even if another sensitive person had success with a flour blend. Not everyone responds in the same way. For instance many on here love Bob's Red Mill but I react to it so I try to avoid that brand but for others its wonderful.

If anyone is looking for a stuffing mix that is good Celiac Specialies is a great one , seasoning pack included in separate packaging.

And you can have pumpkin pie without a crust! Just make your favorite filling , grease the pan or dish well add filling & bake. Perfect every time & a way lot less calories. We never eat the crust anyway...

Maybe a new flour mill would be a good idea? I got one recently and it is so much better than the coffee grinder that I was using. I make my own flour blends and that way I can visually inspect and wash the grain first. I have pulled out grains that looked like gluten from millet and corn. If Jules is really pure enough for a super sensitive, it would be worth the $20, it is a lot of work to make flour free of contamination.

Where did you buy your grain mill? that is really scary about the corn. Probably explains why I can't eat cornmeal without a reaction. Thanks!

Sorry I took so long to answer. I don't come on here very often. I bought a manual grain mill, Country Living. It's not for everyone to manually grind their grain. I really like it though. The first mill came tested with flour. They included a little package of the flour so I could see how fine it was. I freaked when I saw that in my gluten free house! I contacted them and they sent me a new one tested with rice. It was still highly contaminated with gluten and I had to put 12 cups of flour through it until the flour had undetectable amounts of gluten in it. If you get one, I suggest that you take it apart and carefully clean it before use.

    Why....why would your doctor not follow the standard of care for testing celiac disease?  I think you need to think about  finding another doctor.  If you are in the US, you can “walk” into a lab and order the test and pay cash: https://labtestsonline.org/tests/celiac-disease-antibody-tests No, your result does not significantly lower your odds of getting a celiac disease diagnosis.  She ordered the LEAST commonly used test, especially since she only ordered that one alone.  I think she thinks you do not have celiac disease, but that you may have a gluten sensitivity.  But that is wrong!  There is no test for gluten sensitivity.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://www.mayocliniclabs.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf https://celiac.org/about-celiac-disease/screening-and-diagnosis/screening/ https://www.verywellhealth.com/celiac-disease-blood-tests-562694 https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/diagnostic-tests/celiac-disease-health-care-professionals I am not a doctor though.  Perhaps, you can ask her why she did not order the complete panel or at least the screening tests most often ordered for celiac disease. Know that some celiacs are asymptomatic (no symptoms) Some just have one symptom.  Some have classic symptoms.  I presented with only anemia and no GI symptoms with only a positive on the DGP IgA.    I hope this helps.  
    Got the result today, and it is indeed the IgG only, and it is "negative" with a result of: <10.0 Units I have sent a message to my doctor requesting that she at least also order the TTG IGA test. However, I'm assuming that this result does at least significantly lower the likelihood that I have celiac? This is all just a shot in the dark anyhow... but after 8 years of unsatisfactorily diagnosed mystery joint pain, I don't want to only half-explore an option and then abandon it without a reasonably definitive result.
    It sounds like you were not given the full celiac panel. The full celiac panel includes: TTG IGA
    TTG IGG
    DGP IGA
    DGP IGG
    EMA
    IGA You have to be eating gluten daily for 12 weeks before the blood test. A positive on any one blood test should lead to a gastroenterologist doing an endoscopy /biopsies to confirm a celiac diagnosis.
