gluten-free Bread

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I am newley diagnosed and have been doing fairly ok, until i bought and made Bob's Red Mill homemade bread mix. I followed the instructions to the letter and made it in my bread machine ( which was thouroughy cleaned before use) Since eating it i have been experiencing the dirreah that i get when i am glutened? I know the bread if gluten-free, so i am confused. Also i have used the BRM pizza crust mix and had the same result. Perhaps it could be the yeast? Is there a link with celiacs and yeast i am unaware of???

Hello

In my humble opinion there is no way to clean the crevices in a bread maker, toaster or hand mixer vents. The same goes for rubber, plastic & scratched utensils pots & pans, skillets.Cutting boards as well.

I've been gluten-free for years & I have replaced all of the above items. Piece by piece, little by little . I kept my gluten-free things separate from the ones that other family members use for wheat cooking.

You could be a very sensitive celiac or it could be because you are in the beginning stages of the gluten-free lifestyle. You also could be reacting to another ingredient . Many have allergies to other food products.... it is not uncommon...

I react to Bob'S Red Mill products in general so I try to avoid them.

Anna's Bread mix, Pamela's bread mix, Gluten Free Pantry bread mix all are very good. There is a new bread mix from Three Sisters in Pa that is very good white bread. Udi's in Denver has very good bread ready made that you can order on line.

It isn't the yeast, most likely (though there are those who have candida on this board)---it's probably the fact that you've never had bread or pizza made out of beans before. I react to Bob's Red Mill, but I also have problems with the legume based mixes more often than not. I have problems with BRM as well because the price is not reflective of the quality; it is harder for me to make decent bread and baked goods out of BRM products than Ener-g for example. I know that I was also warned from the beginning that a) the bean flours, while good for you, were also liable to cause digestion problems, b ) that they might taste off, and c) that, for better or for worse, my bread machine, dating from my pre-gluten free days, was now off limits. There's just no way to clean it so that every single molecule is gone. I'll replace it eventually, but I don't actually like bread machines all that much anyway.

I'm told that Pamela's is fabulous if you can have dairy; if you can't, Gluten Free Pantry is awesome. I haven't used Pamela's (given that I'm dairy free) so I don't know the quirks behind using that mix. I know that Gluten Free Pantry requires a bit of adjustment when it comes to liquids, sometimes requiring a little bit more and sometimes needing just a little bit less. It also cooks best in pans that don't have the traditional "bread pan" shape.

I can't tolerate the flours in Bob's Red Mill. I feel like I have been glutened if I eat too much of any gluten free flour, but I have an especially bad reaction to Bob's.
