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.

    • Dermatitis Herpetiformis  can manifest itself in lesions anywhere, not just elbows and knees.  I have it and although gluten free, I still have severe itching and little bumps that itch.  I don't have the lesions any more, but itching can drive a person mad.  the bumps can be on buttocks, shoulders, etc.  Dapsone is the standard treatment, if you are not allergic.  I also use topical prescription creams.  I take 2 Zyrtec a day and benedryl at night.  Benedril spray helps with temporary relief.  Also am on hydroxyzine and doxepin.  Sometimes steroids like prednisone help, but can ruin ones blood sugar counts.  I use Grandma's Baking Soda soap.  Straw may certainly be a factor.  I must be coming in contact with a trigger of some kind even though I'm very careful about my diet.  Change your dermatologist and get a specialist in DH.  I went for years with all kinds of stomach and bowel issues and was 69 years old before being correctly diagnosed.  Don't let anyone tell you it's your imagination!
    • I can not help you except to offer some emotional support.  You are not crazy!  You can get glutened on a farm.  Here is a study: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc063112#t=article This topic has come up before: Hugs!      
    • I know I got glutened after handling some straw last year helping out decorating at the farmers market then going to eat something without washing my hands. I later learned it was wheat straw, some of them still had the heads on them and everything. Gave that area wide walk around after that, I did not have much issues with inhalation with it. But if your there with a thrasher running, down wind during the harvest.......I imagine it might be hell if your super sensitive. If you get skin reactions that easily from it I guess taking a vacation during harvest? Try staying indoors, dust mask, long sleeves and pants hope for the best.......I am just throwing some ideas out there. Maybe someone can help a bit more.
    • Hi i haven't been diagnosed yet. Bloodwork was negative (on gluten free diet) and I'm awaiting skin biopsy results  I have DH on the front of my thighs. The dermatologist says DH only happens on knees and elbows therefore I don't have it. It's itchy as hell, blisters, purple scans as It heals, migrates around but always in that spot on both legs. It takes 5 days after exposure to gluten for it to show up and it can last for a month. I throw up 24 hours after exposure, GI symptoms 36 hours after that last for about a week. I also will have a panic attack somewhere in that time.  I've been gluten free since December. Rash went away after a week of no gluten but came back after a few months (I ate a rice Crispie square)  My problem is this. I live in a farming community. I just filled my dogs kennel with straw not even THINKING about gluten. This was last week. All symptoms happened in order and now the DH is back. How the hell am I going to survive? I can stop using it on my property but what if it's in the air during Harvest time? I thought I had a mental handle on this but I'm devastated and terrified. My husband doubts it's possible the straw Glutened me but I know it did. What if this summer the air literally kills me? Has anyone dealt with this? I feel like I'm going insane, I'm so obsessed with this and now I'm itchy and sick too 😥 
    • It's good to be aware isn't it. Medical research has verified airborne particles can be problematic and hopefully there will be greater refinement in the research to establish greater understanding over time.  The site manager at the construction site informed me that my symptoms starting coincided with when the work with cement started. As I got sick from plaster in my house I am thinking this could be related. I was honest with my doctor about my symptoms and said I thought it had something to do with working next to a construction site. He said it sounds like an allergice response and said that it could be related to gluten symptoms but that these things are poorly understood.  The cement work nearest my window is finishing this week and I'm due to return to my job. Relief! X
