A Wheat-free Bread That I Can Toast

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Turkey, vacuum pack it, you can use it later for soups, stews, sandwiches, omelettes etc. Will keep for months in the freezer

      Dressing,
      You can use it in various ways my fun thing to do with it is moisten it back up a bit and load it into a waffle maker these can then be frozen or eaten when ever, dressing and sausage flavored waffles are AWESOME.
      Other leftovers can be put in a icecube tray and froze these cubes can be kept in a bag in the freezer, they are perfect for just putting a few in a bowl and zapping in the microwave later for quick meal, I love stir frying them in with eggs.

      Gravy, Gravy can be frozen in icecube trays, and kept in bags, you can then put these over bread, mash, etc and melt them over them later in the microwave or use in a soup like a stock to add flavor.

      Most Desserts can be frozen but around here I have hardly ever had any last the next week.

      Mashed potatoes, again these can be loaded into icecube trays frozen and kept in bags for quick reheat and use meals. Goes great in soups later to thicken them up. Green beans, after thanksgiving....you might want a new flavor thankfully the green beans can be incorporated into another cuisines using spices, in a soup or stir fried Asian style in coconut secret teriyaki sauces.
      Casserole dishes honestly freeze quite well in may cases, I have not had many survive the next week but often you can top them other other cuisine spices or sauces and fry them up in a skillet or reheat in a bowl for something different.  
    • Appreciate the thorough responses.    The stomach issues have been dreadful the past few weeks and brought hurrendous awakenings.the worst I have slept in a long time. I have had a few gluten foods in all honest. Maybe a mcdonalds twice in 2 months. Which isnt ideal. But I dont seem to feel anything afterwards (terrible excuse I know)  My biggest worries were my memory and cognitive behaviour! I was in London Bridge station and forgot where I was heading for 15 minutes. My memory is terrible, as is the concentration. So its a bit of a battle at the minute and I am flunking in my new job. I feel like as you said, neurologically I have deteriorated. Wit and brain function out the window. Considering I was a pretty switched on person. Balance and diziness at points. (all this on a gluten free diet after 4 months triggered me too my mcdonalds binge) ha ha.  I think the memory was the worst.    As you said about the brit medical side being useless. I think you are correct. I understand its the NHS and free etc. But this is just not considered a worry. Ive considered pulling myself into A and E this past few weeks because of the pain and I know this is the only way anyone will give me a thorough look over. I was also sent for a bone scan ( no reasoning as to why) But from research it seems to be for searching the nutrients in the bone?    Neurological side has been really i think what has been the toughest. My job requires an awful lot of high concentration and memory. Which when I fail at, causes stress, and then I am caught in the vicious cycle! Thanks for the help guys. Nice to meet some fellow people who can relate. I just feel like celiacs seem to know more then the doctors, which shows primitive practice in order to solve it. Once again, I would never know the NHS or doctors. I understand free health care is health care. But how low on the list this is, is a worry.    
    • I get vomiting with large amounts of gluten, and motion control loss, followed by either Diarrhea or constipation for a week was back in June 2016 when I decided to eat at a new place, I was on my floor unable to move vomiting so hard there was blood in it.
      NOW trace amounts I have gotten sense then and confirmed via Nima Gluten sensor then following lab testing have show that for me I get constipation, gas, bloat, and nerve issues with fog and peripherally neuropathy. The vomiting was missing from stuff confirmed at 6ppm, but obvious other nerve and fog issues were apparent (I kept dropping stuff and walking into things, mind kept on wondering and having those what was I doing moments, topped with backed up to hell with painful gas)
      Everyone is a little different and symptoms seem to change and evolve with time and type/form of exposure. I used to get a angry Mr, Hyde rage mode, and weeks of constipation and I used to not have the motor loss issues just brain fog and looping thoughts. It changes

      The cause is mostly due to your antibodies going up and your immune system attacking your own body, where it attacks, how, and to what degree greatly varies and after a exposure it can take weeks to wind down off the response and for the antibodies to go down. Just giving a basic idea here.

      Once you get exposed all you can do is treat the symptoms and wait it out, up supplementation of b vitamins, magnesium etc. Take pepto, or Imodium depending on what you have, teas and bone broths and try to eat easy to digest foods for the next week, Mushed up, blended, purreed, stewed/steamed super soft foods.
    • Hi everyone,  Once again I am here looking for your help. I was diagnosed with Celiac less than a year ago. It took quite a while to find out because I didn't experience any particular symptoms after eating gluten. I was always tired, had memory problems and was frequently ill; sometimes I had gastrointestinal issues, but they came and went.  Last night I went out for dinner, to a Thai place I trust(ed). Later, I could hardly sleep, I had horrible nightmares, those where you can hardly tell apart when you are awake or not. I expected to have high fever but nothing!  Today all my body aches, I am very tired and was nauseated all day. A little bit gasy and bloated as well.. Was I glutened?? Did I already clean my body enough that I now start to react in this fashion? If so, why does that happen?  There is also gastroenteritis going around, that would be the alternative explanation. I thought I excaped it. I also didn't vomit or have diahrrea like the rest.  What do you think?
    • With a positive EMA and a positive tTg, that is a slam dunk for Celiac Disease.  If you read about testing results, the odds are 99% that you have it. You also had very high numbers on your testing so that adds to the diagnosis.  At this point, the biopsy, if you have it done, is to check for the amount of damage, and is not needed for a diagnosis. I declined the biopsy as I was very sick at diagnosis.  The doctor who ran my blood panel said there was no doubt I had it due to the high numbers on my blood work.  I have been gluten-free for 12 years and every single doctor I have ever seen since then, who whined about me not having the biopsy, shut up about it once they saw my initial blood work.  The difference in my health since going gluten free was nothing short of amazing. I am sure you will have the same results, once you go gluten free.
