Manna From Anna?

5 posts in this topic

Looking for a Manna from Anna review...heard it's great...it's damn pricey, though. How many loaves from a package? Do you have to freeze it once it's baked or how long does it last?

Thanks!

Michelle

Manna from Anna is the very best bread I have eaten since I have

become g/free....about 5 years ago!!! It is to die for!

I make one large loaf from a bag of mix. Yes, it is pricey, but well

worth the dime!

And....I received it just about 2 days after I ordered it! What

service!

She says you should keep and use it for 2 or 3 days and wrap and

freeze the rest. I slice and freeze soon after it is cool.

Remove from freezer and let thaw. It is just like real bread.

I feel as if I have died and gone to heaven when I eat this

bread.

You have to try it to believe it, I guess. I will never buy any other

mix or make my own again using all the flours, etc. etc.!

I agree with Jean...I developed my own recipe for bread - which I really love, but Manna from Anna is better! I have made hamburger buns and small sub sandwich rolls as well from this mix. I make 2 smaller loaves from the mix instead of one large one - you have slightly smaller size slices for sandwiches, but it makes the price not seem as high.

Try it!

I have tried this bread and I have to agree, it's the best gluten-free bread I've tried yet. I have been trying to make my own recipe that is as good but no luck as yet. You can get 1 loaf per package if you use the bread machine method, but the package says you can get 2 loaves if you use the oven method.

The only problem I have with this bread, other than its price, is the fact that it uses a lot of bean flour and that tends to upset my system if I eat too much. So I also slice and then freeze it and eat it sparingly over time. It tastes great when toasted, especially with a little butter on it, and I also use it for all my sandwiches, etc. If you haven't found any gluten-free bread worth eating yet, give this a try. It isn't "exactly" like regular wheat bread, but I think it's about as close as you can get. The texture and consistency is dead-on-target. It has a "nutty" flavor that is not too strong, especially if you use it in a sandwich.

I have to agree == it's worth every penny == Very, very good bread. It's just wonderful. Kim.

    • 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,
