Haha cannot believe I wrote "Wholecornsstore" LOL Thats funny!! I am sguessing itred tho and still have the "Brain fog" It "Whole Food Market?" I cannot even remember the name of the store LOL Any hoo I found 1 bag of the noodles I bought and it is made by : bionature : They are Rice , Potato and soy. I said I only found one of the bag , but I think I only bought one bag. I had two and only ended out buying one. Well maby I should go to bed now huh?

That could have been my error. From time to time, my tablet likes to jump all over the place and inserts letters and words. I am guessing it happened when I was typing "cornstarch" and my less than brilliant tablet added it to your blurb. Weird!

I get the trader joes brown rice pasta. I can't hardly tell the difference. It has a nice texture too and is hard to overcook to boot.

I really like GoGo Quinoa brand. It is a rice/quinoa combo pasta and it has a mouth feel and texture of wheat pasta. I belong to the ONFC and order it all from there as it is much cheaper than any grocery store or Walmart.

My daughter is vegetarian , ( not that , that makes a big dif in this thread) but she came to visit and I was telling her that I had bought some gluten-free pasta. She said the rice ones were really good. I know I have had rice noodles b4 and like them.

I'm very happy for this thread! I'm new and I just made spaghetti last night with De Boles rice spaghetti. OMG it was NASTY. Weird tasting and like a thick glutinous sludge in my mouth. BLEAH. 

Sorry I have nothing to contribute as I'm still experimenting, but thank you all!

Ty because I just made something with De Boles, I ate it but didn't like it!!! 1st the water was super thick as it was boiling, would of been good for gravy!! They package said do not over boil so I boiled it 3 minutes less than they said ... It sucked up all the gravy I had and it was a big pile of mush!! Yuk!!! I will cook the rest up for the cats or something I am not sure!! Good thing I didn't try it on hubbs 1st! I just bought what they had at the store!! I guess I'd better buy some on line. pftttt!! Well I love to order on line!! :) I will go for the Tink next time!! :)

You are correct on every point you made.  Gluten free pasta will never be the same as we remember....it's a different animal.  I use it for spaghetti and it may last one day, as left overs, with the sauce combined.  It does suck up liquids and leftovers are not too good.

 

Over cooking gluten free pasta is not too good.  You have to experiment and try different brands.  I do like Sam Mills (found at my local Food Lion) and I can't wait to order some Depuma's Gluten Free Fresh Raviolli.

 

 Maybe someday it will be the pasta of the past. :)

I am not a big fan of pasta anyway or bread!! hahaha must be my body knew i was allergic :) Not really I was forced to eat Biscuits and Gravy as a child and sense then I have never been a big fan of Bread!! Specially wet bread!! noodles I am not a big fan of because Hubbs loves them and eats them at just about every meal!! I get sick of them! So when I am in the mood, they'd better be good!!

Ancient quinoa is somewhat forgiving if it is overcooked, but it depends on the shape. Elbows hold up better than any other shape.

I've had good luck with the rice & corn pasta at Target. It's the store brand, Archer Farms, & it's made in Italy.  I've tried several rice-only brands, & they seemed really starchy. One brand turned the cooking water gelatinous.  However, Target has no dedicated gluten-free section (in spite of my FB posts...lol) so you'll have to look for it in the pasta section.

 

 

After seeing your post, I bought some of the Archer Farms Fusili last night - WOW. I am hooked! Thank you, bc if not for your post I never would have tried it!

We like Tinkyada. I boil it in a *lot* of salted boiling water, and only until slightly undercooked.

I always know it's done when all the starch rises to the top.

 

A suggestion, no matter what kind of pasta you're using: undercook it a little (al dente), rinse it it cold water, then put it in with whatever sauce or such your having it with and let it heat back up in it. That seems to help get the starch off and it holds together a bit better.

Another fan of the Ancient Harvest corn/quinoa pasta here. We have tried many, many gluten-free pastas & this one is GOOD.

    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.  
    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis? 
    • That's interesting, thanks.  I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too.  I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like losing weight when I'm not trying to. Mind you - some days I just can't eat, after lunch yesterday I couldn't face anything much at all.
