A Wheat-free Bread That I Can Toast
0

21 posts in this topic

Hi

This is my second week of going wheat free but I am suffering from withdrawl :(

I confess to loving breads...they have been the waterloo of my diet life. I love eggs on toast for breakfast. I bought a rice bread from the local health food store but it is UNTOASTABLE.

I might as well nuke it in a microwave just to heat it up. In a toaster it often get gooey and falls apart when I try to remove it. I have tried spelt grain bread in the past but it seems to be the same as a wheat bread as to its effect on me so that is out.

Rice bread works, but "raw" it is just inedible and toasted just won't work. My only solution so far is to fry it in a pan with butter...at least it gets some color and I can lift it out with a spatula in one piece....and then place a fried or poached egg on top.

Are all rice breads like this??? Is there an alternative to rice bread that is not spelt??

First SPELT is wheat, and has gluten. As you found out the hard way.

Alot of ppl here like the kinnikinnick breads for premade, and "Mana from Anna" gets the highest marks for mixes from most ppl here. I have not tired either yet becuase of my son's egg allergy.

Thanks for the reference....at first I was wondering how I could order these products but then I saw supporting stores and I found that there were about a dozen of them in Calgary. Most are Safeway stores but there are 2 or 3 others to try if Safeway doesn't stock everything....I will give this a try.

Welcome and this does get easier as time goes on. I too love eggs and love them with Kinnikinnick brand English muffins toasted. I cut them into thirds instead of just in half usually toast them twice, so they are done through. They ARE SO yummy. Even my mom tried them that doesn't have to eat Gluten free and loved them. Also, if you are looking for a descent sandwich bread there is a bread mix from "Gluten Free Pantry" called "Favorite Sandwich BRead". You have to make it in a bread maker and I could give you some tricks to having it turn out perfect! It makes great sandwiches and doesn't have to be toasted. "Breads by Anna" are good in a bread maker too, but it is made from bean flours and sometimes I like it and sometimes it seems to tasted a little beany, but I do like it. I probably prefer the Gluten Free Pantry bread mix though. You have to order the Breads by Anna online. The Gluten free Pantry mix is sold in alot of healthfood stores. All of them can be ordered online. Kinnikinnick also has a great chocolate covered donut, muffins, hamburger buns, bagels, and mini pizza crusts. All of these you keep frozen until you are ready to eat them. The Pizza crusts are awesome.

Goodluck and take care!

P.S. Guess you found out the hard way that Spelt does come from wheat and has gluten. There are people working in healthfood stores telling people with Celiac disease it is safe, but it isn't. There is a list of ingredients on this list that may or may not contain gluten. You may already know, but you have to read all labels and look for it. Sometimes under wording such as "natural Flavors", Modified food starch, Spices, etc.

Oh, you are another Calgary resident. Go to Earth's Oven on 33 Ave in Marda loop they have some great different breads there. The Kinnickinnick rice/tapioca cheese bread is good and if you put it in the toaster oven for a few minutes it will make it soft so you can make sandwiches with it. Also the Kinnickinnick raisin bread is not bad and they have great bagels. You can get the bagels at Amaranth foods. I find the breads in Lakeview bakery to be not very good. Also Earth's Oven has pizza crusts and if you go to the Currie Barracks farmers market Terra Cotto has good stuff and they are Celiacs.

It does get easier to do this and I have to agree that most strictly rice bread is like eating dirt.

Hi--If you have a Whole Foods nearby, they have their own line of baked goods called The Gluten Free Bakeshop. The sandwich bread is great toasted, it is even good untoasted. The cinnamon raisin bread is as good or better than "regular"--toasts great. If you have to go a distance to one, you can call ahead and order what you want--they will hold it in the freezer for you.

I've tried a ton of gluten-free breads and in my opinion the very best are Breads by Anna (http://www.glutenevolution.com/) or Whole Foods market gluten-free breads. Rice breads just don't toast well and they tend to fall apart. My favorite from the above is Anna's breads however its a mix and you have to make them first (I do it in my bread machine) so if you need a quick fix and are near a Whole Foods market thats the next best.

I know a lot of people don't like EnerG breads, but they are very toastable and are similar to something like Wonderbread.

I'm very pleased with 2 Kinnikinnick breads I've tried...the Italian White Tapioca Rice Bread and the Brown Sandwich bread are both wonderful toasted. I keep them frozen, then when ready to toast I nuke a slice in the microwave for about 20 seconds, then toast it. I haven't tried to eat them just thawed out....but they seem nice and soft and not falling apart like some of the horrible rice breads I've tried. Also, Kinnikinnick's English muffins are FABULOUS toasted....and their bagels are pretty good too. My gluten eating husband and son both liked these items too. I don't find Kinnikinnick things locally, so I order online. I don't eat much of these anyway, so while they are pricey they last me a long time.

Personally I eat EnerG, I think they taste the closest to bread and don't crumble. I used to love multigrain breads but have yet to find a good gluten-free version. I find Kinnikinnick breads to be too sweet. I try to stay away from rice breads (too sweet) and go fo tapioca and potato based breads. In Europe a great deal of their breads are potato based and are almost as good as real bread! One of these days I will try to make my own...

Really, the only thing to do is try the gluten-free breads one by one (in order of recommendation would be my suggestion, of course), and see what you like. It's not an easy thing to find. After two and a half years, as someone who used to love bread, however, I can tell you that it actually isn't that hard to live without if you give your tastebuds permission to adapt to life without it. I'm not saying you have to do that, just letting you know that it is a liveable option.

We make a homemade gluten-free bread that is really really good. You do need a break maker though, but we make it 2-3 times a week. If you want I can post it here a little later, but my mom would have to type it out.

Manna from Anna fan here!! She even has a dairy free bread mix.

I make a loaf and scoop some of the batter/dough in to English Muffin rounds, so I have an awesome sandwich loaf and several perfect rolls for burgers, etc.

Well I truly thank everyone for their responses.

I think I have found a bread that I like!!!! It is made by Glutino, Laval Quebec...here is their website

Glutino

I don't know if it is distributed in the USA but I found it in Canada Safeway in Glenmore Landing. It is a few cents cheaper than the Kinnickinnick breads that they have there so I decided to give them a try (the Scottsman in me :) )

I bought the Flax Seed Bread (gluten free). As I told you before, I am (was) a bread junkie (mind you at these prices I will have to curtail that a bit...hahaha). I have not eaten this bread "raw" but the first thing I did when I got home was thaw 2 pieces and pop it into the toaster. It ACTUALLY had a blush of brown on it as though it toasted....the pieces were very sturdy and did not melt or fall apart in the toaster as ordinary white rice bread did (this bread is made from corn starch, tapioca starch, whole flax seeds, safflower oil, flax seed meal, evaporated cane juice, dried egg whites plus other stuff....it may contain traces of soy according to the label)

When I buttered it the slices did not fall apart....then I put my organic peanut butter on and had my first decent toasted peanut butter toast in weeks!!!

The texture and taste are great!!!

I may be preaching to the converted here but I found this to be a great tasting product. I have the hamburger buns as well which I will treat like English muffins. They also have 7" pizza crusts there too at this store.

I found that not all Safeway stores carry gluten free bread or products....Glenmore Landing is a pretty large and well stocked store. I go to Marda Loop every so often I will check out Earth's Oven too....Thanks

Oh man, I went through the same problem as you. I had been eating toast every morning since I was a little kid. After I finally found out that I was celiac and not just crazy, I was so frustrated in the morning without the joy of toasted bread and butter. I've tried some of the ready made breads--Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakehouse makes some wonderful products, but their super pricey and the nearest whole foods is twenty miles from me. I've tried many and the best by far is Bob's Red Mill Homemade Wonderful Gluten Free Bread. You can buy it online but I buy it at my local health food store. It makes awesome toast. Unfortunately, it's a mix that I have to make myself. I wish someone would sell it ready made.

Man, please stay away from spelt, rye, barley, kamut and things that are sold as "wheat-free." Wheat-free does not mean gluten free. Best of luck to you living as a silly-yak.

My favorite bread is Whole Foods' Gluten Free Bakehouse Sundried Tomato Garlic Bread. Toasted with butter. It's SO yummy. Especially along with a Tinkyada spaghetti dinner. :D

I'm going to have to try that flax bread. A PB&J sounds so good right now.

    • You're welcome ritamichelle. Yes, if you are biopsy confirmed then it will be much easier to get your daughter tested. 
    • I agree that In people that have celiac there usually is a trigger. It can be physical or emotional stress as the article states. I wonder though if the people they say 'don't have the genes' are folks that simply have rarer ones. There is research on more genes. I discovered it when I was writing a paper for a class. It was a very long time ago in 'computer age' and my bookmarks died along with the computer I was useing. But it is out there on peer reviewed sites like Lancet, NIH etc. Since celiac was rarely tested for even a couple decades ago there are many folks that may have celiac in their family but it was never known. That was the case in my family. I am confident about that.  I always wondered why my Mom seldom left the house, spent a lot of time in the bathroom, was tired all the time and was always holding her hands the way she did.  Then I became her.  We have so much to learn about celiac. Personally I dislike the term 'NCGS' because it makes folks think at times they don't need to be as strict and it isn't as serious. Too many are told that their biopsies are negative and they then get the NCGS label if they had positive bloods.  I consider celiac to be a spectrum disorder. Not all celiacs have gut impact or at least haven't developed it yet. I had the neuro impact and DH from shortly after I was impaled as a young child. It was many years before any severe GI issues arose.

Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
