I have been strictly gluten-free since July 8 and not completely gluten-free for a couple months longer. I read these two articles about yeast bread and sourdough bread and decided to try a slice of sourdough. I don't think it was safe. I've got the sore spot in my gut that seems to flare up every time I eat bread, and a little bit of blood (or undigested ketchup? :huh: ) in my stool.

There is no good evidence (or solid reason) that sourdough would be safe for celiacs. The portion of the gliadin protein segment that causes the autoimmune response is VERY stable, and I've seen no solid research that suggests the fermentation/enzyme breakdown by the microbes in a sourdough starter would break down that particular segment of the protein.
