Yes, for me it seems to be the large quantities of tapioca starch that does it.

I had a problem with Gluten Free breads for several years. I got to the point where I would avoid them all together. Not to mention they taste terrible!

I have found a wonderful new brand that I have been using for a couple of months. I LOVE IT! My Daughter prefers it over regular bread and my family members say it tastes like normal bread.

visit charlottesbakery.com

The rice bread is AMAZING! They have a couple other flavors that are good too, but I like the rice the very best. SHipping can get rather expensive, so contact the company and see if they have any stores near you that sell their product.

Good luck!

I discovered a problem with the gluten-free breads (I went a little crazy baking and cooking all the breads and muffins I could find when I first switched over) and found out my problem was not a bread issue but a yeast issue.

I am not saying that you have that problem, only that I did. I like the Chebe breads which help but not great for sandwhiches.

I can't eat gluten free bread because I am intolerant to rice, corn, soy and potatoes as well (and can't tolerate starches of any kind well). There could be lots of different reasons why you can't tolerate it. Really, you need to test all the ingredients separately.

When I tried that, I got an immediate reaction to tapioca (burning tongue). The reactions to the other ingredients aren't immediate, since they're stomach or gut reactions.

I don't eat them any more, either because I am intolerant to all the grains that I've tried, and also to tapioca. Ursula--I don't get burning, but tapioca makes my mouth very dry as soon as I begin chewing it. It also causes me stomach upset. I tried The Gluten Free Pantry French Bread (mix) as it has few ingredients--no dairy, soy, or tapioca. I still couldn't tolerate it, but you might. Have you tried this one, Betty? It's also possible that you could be intolerant to grains or tapioca. Don't you just love being a food detective :D

I can't do potatoes too often so a lot of gluten free breads are off limits for me because of that. I do sometimes eat gluten free bread and cakes that are made with just rice and corn though. Althought I really prefer rice cakes, I must be the only person in the world who really likes them. :D:D:D

hi patty, I bought the gluten-free pantry white bread mix last week, I'm going to try it this weekend, so I'll see if it sits any better, all the ones I've tried so far feel like I ate a rock!

Have you folks tried sorghum breads? That's my favorite bread flour so far. I've experimented with several flour blends, but find the sorghum is the key ingredient. I don't know how well it would work for those of you with other sensitivities, but it might be worth a try.

Don't worry a colonoscopy isn't that bad. I had one about 2 weeks ago. I got sedated so it wasn't too bad.xxx

I find that some brands make me feel not-so-great, but the brown rice bread from Whole Foods is OK.

I really like the um I think it's enjoy life bread that's really springy (it tastes like eating a sponge, but in a good way) but it seems to make me a little sick so I don't eat it anymore.

:lol::lol:

I also react to a lot of the gluten-free breads/baked goods. I don't tolerate the alternative grains very well and other substitute ingredients. I can get away with eating them once in a blue moon, but I never could eat them everyday or several days a week even.

I don't feel the greatest with alot of the popular gluten free breads. For me its the yeast and potato starch. I do ok with a millet/flax bread I get at my local health food store. I don't over do it either. I don't have the web site available but its from Sami's bakery and its located in Florida.

The breads with fruit juice are heavy and ok tasting, but I just don't have any desire to eat them. There is no way I can finish a whole loaf before it goes bad, so it's too expensive. I forgot the name of the kind that looks like a real loaf of white bread, but it's made with corn- it recommends that you toast it-it's ok, but it makes me bloated and gassy, so I choose not to eat that either. The corn muffin mixes are ok, but they are so crumbly and I have to douse them with spray butter and jam to eat them. I really only crave bread when my boyfriend eats hot dogs or sausages with buns!

Ursula, I've never posted so I hope this is correct. I'm just beginning a gluten free diet to see if it resolves my long history of malabsorption,burping, burning,constipation/diarrhea etc. I have been eating a lot of the gluten free products for a couple of years because I found out I did better without wheat. Then nothing seemed to work(stressful period also in life). For about 2 years as I became worse my tongue also began burning. You have me wondering about the tapioca. How did you find this out? Do other foods also cause the burning as well? Also how did you find out all the foods you were allergic to, an allergist? Thanks, Lynn

I don't have any problems with the gluten-free bread, but I get the same symptoms when I eat corn as I do gluten.

It seems as if, for many, grains should be avoid 100% of the time. I feel best when I eat fruits, vegetables, and legumes.

I generally avoid the gluten free breads and treats, they do not agree with me and although the effect is not as bad as being glutened it's bad enough. It is only once a month or so that I have some gluten free toast and I haven't found a rice bread that I really like anyways. Home made treats are definitely superior, they taste better and I feel better when I eat them but I can't do them often.

I have to keep reminding myself that I am ill and it will take time to recover and that I need to be very gentle with my digestion, it is just not up to too many sweets.

I have a problem with gluten-free breads because of an egg allergy. Many of the breads have eggs, although not all. Maybe there's another allergy involved.

My fave so far is the 4-flour bread in Bette Hagman's The Gluten Free Gourmet Bakes Bread, using the sesame variation & replacing all sugar with molasses. It isn't all sorghum, just one of the ingredients, but it seems to make a big difference.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
