My wife just started a gluten-free diet, and out bread machine does not have any special settings. What needs to be adjusted for gluten-free mixes?

A bread machine that has a gluten free setting means that there is only 1 rise....that is all that is needed when making gluten free bread. Non gluten-free settings usually have 2 and sometimes 3 rise cycles. I do not have a bread machine with a gluten free setting...I simply put all the ingredients in the machine (in the order recommended) and program the machine for mixing dough. When the dough is mixed, I take it out, put it in a bread pan, let it rise, then bake in a regular oven. I made a loaf using this method a few weeks ago, and it came out pretty darn good. From now on, this will be my preferred method.

Google gluten-free bread machine settings and much information will be available.

I had considered purchasing a bread machine with a gluten free setting, but have decided to purchase a Kitchen Aid Artesian stand mixer instead.....since I have so many food issues, and most everything has to be made from scratch, I feel the heavy duty stand mixer will be worth the investment for me.

James,

I do have machine with the gluten free setting, but have also successfully made bread with a gluten-free recipe on just the white bread setting and it came out fine. You can't over work gluten free dough, supposedly.

Try a search of this forum for more threads on gluten free bread baking. There is lots of great information on this site.

Thanks for the replies everybody. My wife just started a gluten-free diet to help with the symptoms of her fibromyalgia (maybe pre-celiac disease?), so we're having to find new things a ways to eat.

thanks again

Funny that you should mention fibromyalgia....I suddenly became very ill out of a clear blue sky...in additon to severe abdominal pain, nausea and diarrhea, I had sharp, shooting pains mostly in my abdomen, and on occassion in my arms and legs...these all disappeared when I went gluten, dairy, and soy free. Blood tests were negative, DNA tests were positive. On occasion, I still have symptoms including tingling sensation in my arms and legs and can usually figure out what the offending food might be....one of them being artificial sweetners.

Now, back to the bread making.....you will quickly find out where the expression "sticky fingers" came from when you try to handle gluten-free dough. A light coating of oil on your hands, or using Saran wrap to handle pie crust dough, etc. will help greatly.
