Gluten-Free Bread

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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

    • Magnesium, B-vitamins, Vitamin D etc. Should probably be supplemented. For the fog, stress, brain issues I swear by my regime of Liquid Health Stress & Energy, and Liquid Health Neurlogical support 1tbsp each 3 times a day in a beverage before a meal. Works wonders, magnesium is also wonderful, you did not mention constipation or D so I do not know which is best for you. There is Doctors best and Natural Vitality, Doctors best works great for relaxing and is easy on the gut but Natural Vitality is easier absorbed but can be harsh on the gut, it also is great for constipation. Doctors you dose as it tells you, Natural Vitality, you start off at 1/4 tsp and up it slowly to full dose over 1-2 weeks.
      Liquid Health also makes Vitamin D3 in a sublingual form. ALL of these can be found on Luckyvitamin.com and on Amazon.
      These will help with you fog, and anxiety.
    • Our 6 year olds Iga test came back over >100 last May. We had him tested because he was thin, had dropped down in his weight charts and was losing his hair! He was also suffering from miscellaneous aches and pains. We immediately eliminated gluten and with only a few screw ups, 6 months later his level was 4! The doctor is astonished at how rapidly it decreased, and is questioning whether he has celiac or not. (has not had a biopsy, as they are so invasive and the testing is so accurate these days.) His hair is thicker and he has gone up in weight 5%, and doesn't complain as much about leg pains or aches.  Has anyone else's child recovered this fast? Could something else be going on? His thyroid tests are normal, so the plan for now is to keep doing what we are doing and re-test both Iga and thyroid in the spring.  thanks for any help!!  
    • I too have a servere but  Of D. Lasting over 2 weeks I will try to find thisproduct. Like you nothing works. I am trying FiberCon says only take for 9 days. Feeling somewhat  better. Thank you for your info.ism welling  to try anything..
    • Soft blended, soups, porridge, Personally I had to avoid the follow for my last gluten attack Spices (made it burn),  any carbs, sugars even in trace amounts caused gas, We normally suggest removing dairy and oats also as they become problematic during healing. Simple soft cooked egg dishes (coconut/almond meal quiche and microwaved omelettes), nut meal porridge sit best for me. Many swear by peppermint and camomilla tea, and peptobismal but neither of those work for me personally, other swear by Imodium for the D.

      There is a product out there that is supposed to lessen the symptoms of a exposure called GlidainX that helps to break down some of the gluten in the intestines so it is not as bad but you have to take it right after realizing the issue. Not tried it personally but after my last exposure and the following 4 weeks of random bouts of D I had I would have tried anything lol. MY D did no stop til my antibodies went back down and my exposure was a low and slow exposure to a CCed food staple....
       
    • Hi lex, I haven't tested anything with NIMA myself, since I don't have one.   I did find some honey sites that claim they have gluten-free honey.  This is just a couple I found in a quick search.  It seems to me honey is made from nectar of flowers.  The nectar is a precursor to the seed.  So the seed isn't formed until the flower is fertilized.  Then gluten is formed as the seed matures.  So normally I think there is little chance of honey having gluten in it because the nectar and gluten are not present at the same time in the plants. I don't think it's impossible for honey to somehow get some gluten in it.  Honey from china has been adulterated with other things already.  Generally high fructose corn syrup.  But who know what else they put in it? I think's its safer to buy local honey where you know the farmer than imported brands IMHO. If there were a large flour mill in the area where the honey was being harvested I'd be a little wary of it myself.  At least for honey produced during the harvest season. http://www.barkmanhoney.com/faqs/does-honey-contain-gluten/ http://www.capilanohoney.com/au-en/faq/is-your-honey-gluten-free Is your honey gluten free?       Honey is naturally free of gluten. It does not contain wheat or its by-products. Our honey is 100% pure and natural, nothing has been added to it, therefore it is 100% gluten free. In addition to this, no gluten containing products are handled or stored in our packing facilities.
