Need Help Finding Safe Brands

Hi everyone well I have been gluten free now for over three years. I can not eat what many others can. Chex Glutino pretzels etc. etc. etc. now whether it is the amount of gluten or preservatives I have no idea, I also eat no dairy. I have decided it is time for me to start baking and making as much of my things as possible.

What I would like to know and get your thoughts on are, what flours have you all used that you had no reactions to from cross contamination? Rice flours, potato flours etc. What brand did you buy where did you buy it at etc. I live in a small community so I may have to order online, or drive about 85 miles to a bigger town, which is ok.  I just need to know brands that people seem to have good luck with eating, also am looking for good bread and muffin recipes.

This post might help you: http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/glutenfreefoodshoppin1/tp/Gluten-Free-Bread-Brands.htm

She says that Glutino tests to make sure that their products test to under 20 ppm.  That doesn't mean that they contain that amount of gluten.  They could contain none, but they could contain under that amount.  Some of the other companies test to lower levels.  To start, I would try some of those products to see if you can tolerate them.  If not, then you may have problems with flours as well from companies like that.  An option is to buy whole grains, sort them to remove any grains that don't belong, and grind them into flour yourself.  You could also wash them to remove any possible residue that might be present from any contaminating grains that you might find.

 

Another option is to stick with produce, unprocessed meats and rice.  Maybe small amounts of baked goods from companies that test to 5 ppm would work out.  I hope you find some good options.

if your bigger town has an Indian community, they use  chickpea flour called channa bessan and  split pea flour  Dal. These have never given me any problems. Sometimes you can find millet flour too.  Google Bobs Redmill to see the gluten free flours they have too. -- I can't do dairy either and use coconut milk or almond milk. Good luck

Like Ken, I am a big fan of coconut milk. 

 

I get many things from nuts.com. 

 

Never had a single problem from anything that comes from their G F section.

 

for oats, I use

Also, my friend who owns a G F bakery sources her  starches and flours from Thailand. No problems.

I cannot eat processed gluten free products either. For some reason Glutino is the worst for me even though they are safe. Must be something in it. Anyway I can tolerate Pamela's mixes and Enjoy Life cookies. Once in a while I make a pizza with Pamela's and don't have any problems with it. It is listed as less than 5ppm so it is on the lower side.

I think Pamela's has a muffin mix too

You could also try just eating less of the processed item.  The ppm is a concentration, and when they talk about amount that initiates a gluten reaction, they talk about amount per day.  It is thought to be dose dependent.

Oh good to know. I was having some issues the other day. I ate a gluten-free cereal bar, 2 gluten-free cookies with my tea, and a gluten-free bun with my bratwurst for dinner lol. No wonder

As I mentioned, I use nuts.com  Gluten free flours 

 

http://www.nuts.com/cookingbaking/gluten-free-flour/

 

I have also used Bob's Red Mill and Authentic Foods flours without a problem.

 

For some reason I can not connect to this site, I am getting a "failure to connect"  I am having no problems with any other site so maybe  they are having problems.

The shipping is a bit steep, but they send you a free treat, and it arrives super fast. I can honestly say I have never had a bad thing from them.

They take G F seriously and everything is super-fresh. My hubs loves the dates. I get the coconut flakes, too.

One whole shelf in my pantry is nuts, seeds, coconut, cacao powder and dried fruits from them and another is flours, starches, etc.. 

Good luck with baking!

Irish mentioned Bobs, so I'll mention that I think that I have problems with them, and I think it is because I am sensitive to oats.  Last I knew, they process their gluten-free oats in the facility with the other gluten-free stuff.

    • Get the full celiac blood test.. It includes: TTG IGA TTG IGG DGP IGA DGP IGG EMA IGA It's just a blood test, no reason not to do it. You have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks for the test to not show a false negative. One slice of bread per day is enough. A positive on any one test is supposed to lead to an endoscopy to confirm celiac. Since you're already getting an endoscopy you're good to go there. There are several things you could have, digestion-wise, so I'd do the tests. Celiac requires 100% compliance to the diet, no cheating, so it's good to test for it.
    • Where are you? Nuts are gluten free by nature, some companies might use contaminated seasonings, or make them in a facility that processes trail mix or something with gluten in it. This is where your concern lies, A nut only company should be safe, unseasoned nuts are your best bet, and yest if you can get them in the shell then wash them off really well before shelling and eating them your pretty darn safe with them. Raw walnuts in shell are safe, they normally do not add anything them to them, in case they might have gotten dusted with something just rinse them off before shelling them, I really love taking the walnuts afterward and putting them in a pan on low heat til they start to brown and lightly roast, they are great this way. I also used to take raw walnuts and candy them. Might post that recipe since I can no longer eat them and do not sell them anymore. I have a bit of a issue getting nuts myself by I am allergic to peanuts (not really a nut but a legume). SO for me it is really tricky finding peanut and gluten free nuts lol. I found 3 companies I order from, 1 for organic almonds, 1 for my own almonds, and one that sales walnuts and pistachios only. Most people here just order from Nuts.com but they might not ship to you at a good price. Tried amazon?
    • There aren't any gluten free nut brand in my country. Are nuts with shells like peanuts,walnuts sold in stores without package gluten free? Do they add anything else to them? 
    • Supplementation with Natural Vitality Stress & Energy, will help a lot it is a sublingual B-vitamin pretty much. I use it with the Neurological support from the same company and Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium. These along with a diet in foods that help with mood like snacking on cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, etc. Takes the edge off of everything and I do not worry but just roll with life. Here are some helpful links https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ A set of microwave cookware from nordicware will make the transition and cooking some foods super simple and cheap, steam trays, rice cooker, grill plates, omelette makes etc, also great for trips. Butcher paper/Freezer paper can make a nice safe cook and eating surface and makes clean up a breeze. Crockpot meals with a crockpot liner makes really easy soups, risotto, stews, pot roast, etc and the liner can make cleanup super simple just pull it out and toss it.    Eggs dishes like omelettes using the microwave cooker, scrambled egg dishes, are super simple and one of my go to meals I also so simple stir fry meals a lot. Saute in order of harder and seasoning veggies and meats first and finish off with a sauce/deglazing mix 10-20min meal. I have posted recipes for meals in the recipes sections. MY flat bread recipe seems to bit hit recently being cheap easy and very versatile in how you can make it.
    • Hey everyone... newbie here. I have a few questions but first my history: Dx with Hashimoto's in 2003. Had SEVERE adverse reaction to T4 no idea why but then switched to T3. But T4 opened a can of worms. Immediately after starting T4 had digestive issues. Aften a few years tried gluten free. No help but stayed on gluten-free diet. 2013 gave in to blt cravings and had wheat sandwiches everyday for a week. Woke up one morning with muscles so swollen or inflammed couldn't  get out of bed. No more gluten. Also had blood in stool. 2014 finally dx with pancreas insuffiency. Digestion improved and blood stopped but at same time also dx with colitis (i strongly doubt this dx and don't  take colitis drugs). A year later added cheese back into my diet. Bleeding came back. No more dairy now, blood gone. Now i might have gastritis and sibo. Endoscopy planned for October. 23andMe testing also shows a single mutation for celiac. If i just stay Gluten-free Casein-free does it really matter is i get a dx for celiac? Celiac disease and gluten intolerance... same thing? Is blood in stool common with celiac disease? Is colitis often a wrong dx for celiac disease. Can a biopsy dx celiac when already Gluten-free Casein-free?  Which end of the small intestines used for biopsy? Meaning, when doc looks at my stomach can he do small intestine biopsy or do i need a colonoscopy instead?
