Gluten-Free Bread

11 posts in this topic

I've been gluten free for just over 10 weeks and for the last 4 weeks or so have started to feel some benefits. Over the last 3 days I've had griping tummy pain, d and c, extreme tiredness , sickly and achy arms and realised the only thing I've done different is I've been eating a Glutafin loaf of bread...could that really be the culprit? I've just read the ingredients and it does say it contains 'wheat starch'..so abit confused??

Anyone else have problems with shop bought gluten-free bread? I've been eating approx 98% wholefoods so maybe its just a shock to my system? :(

I got this off their website:

 

Contains gluten free wheat starch which complies with the internationally agreed criteria for gluten free foods so suitable for a gluten free diet (Codex Alimentarius).

 

I wouldn't eat it. just saying.

  The Genius bread, made in the UK, is awesome.  It has been licensed to Glutino in Canada and the US but it isn't the same Genius that I had in London.  I know they stock it at Whole Foods market in their London locations but I know they sell it elsewhere too.  Check their website and look for locations!  It does not contian wheat starch.  The brown bread is delicious.

hi Gemini,

is this the same one?

http://m.sainsburys.co.uk/mt/www.sainsburys.co.uk/sol/global_search/global_result.jsp?bmForm=global_search&GLOBAL_DATA._search_term1=GENIUS+BREAD&GLOBAL_DATA._searchType=0&bmUID=1329406673904

only thing is, I don't have a sainsburys superstore close to me and doubt they'll sell them in their smaller shops. I think its available on prescription i'm having problems getting that.

I'll also try their website, maybe they'll deliver.

cheers

That's the one!  I would check the smaller Sainsbury's anyway to see if they have it.  You could also ask them to stock it.  Maybe they take requests like that.  I know they deliver in the UK because I checked where they deliver to.  That would be a good option if it isn't available within a short distance from your home. 

 

I wasn't aware that the Rx stuff included mainstream grocery purchases.  Why are you having trouble getting that if you've been diagnosed?  They like to make our lives difficult, don't they?  :angry:   Give it a shot because it's very good bread and the ingredients have nothing that you need to worry about.  The woman who developed this bread has a dedicated facility.....all gluten-free stuff!

oooh never thought about asking them to stock it..great idea :)

yes, they love to make it difficult for us...as though its not tough enough!.. although i got dx as 98% positive of having coeliac due to blood test, symptoms and gluten challenge...theyve tried twice in the last couple of yrs to give me a biopsy (last time the sedation didnt work) and I just couldnt tolerate it (very anxious after having a total thyroidectomy and vocal cord was cut); hence nhs won't give me prescription even tho consulant has put it in writing that im coeliac and need to follow a gluten-free diet. I told them to put me to sleep to do biopsy but they said its dangerous me not been aware of what they are doing or following their instructions.

Ah well...what will be, will be .....

I'll make a visit to Sainsburys tomos :)

I mean, really......they have to get rid of that biopsy as a Gold Standard.  It's ridiculous!  I can understand your frustration because I did not have the biopsy, either.  Refused it because I have other medical issues that would have made it difficult to do plus the thing with sedation.  I am one of those people who have a tendency to wake up half way through lighter sedation and then would have freaked out if I had a tube down my throat so I totally get what you are saying.  Fortunately, my blood work was so high and I failed all the tests that my doctor believes the results.  But we also do not have food on Rx so the need to prove is not so great. 

 

I am impressed that Genius is included on the list as most of what I saw in Britain for gluten-free bread was not impressive.  We have a lot of yucky stuff here also, I am not bashing Britian's gluten-free food.  I think they do a pretty good job in many ways and I have eaten the cookies and treats when I travel there and some are great. I love those digestive biscuits you guys have and finally found the gluten-free ones.....they taste the same as the gluten ones. Genius has other breads and Naan bead too.  I LOVE Naan bread and haven't had it since I was diagnosed 8 years ago.  I will be looking for that on my trip this Fall!  ;)

 

Keep pushing NHS.....make them give you what you need.  The squeaky wheel gets the most oil....... :D

    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
    • Last check(last fall sometime) my b12 and folate were fine. He did check my iron and it was fine. My potassium is technically normal, but lower than my cardio wants(I'm on q med that depletes it). Last time I had a full and extensive panel run was years and years ago. I recall my copper being high(but no one ever retested it), vit d and a couple others were low. I have tested positive for labs used to evaluate malnutrition, but it's been q couple of years since they've done those. Just going to put it on the back burner for now I guess. Can't afford to lose much more weight, but they tend to get more serious the lower my BMI goes(not on purpose, I'll have periods where I can gain a bit because I'm not vomiting a lot. Past two days I've been throwing up again after I eat.) Maybe my next colonoscopy will finally show something useful.  It's just 3 years this time and I've been arguing about my gut for 18 years now so what's a little More? 
    • Re. gorilla munch - Made with corn, says gluten free on the box, I don't know why it wouldn't be. It's quite yummy. Corn pops and Post golden crisp used to be my favorites, before celiac.
    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
