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 get it on the back of my right leg and right elbow.  I have no idea why it's just limited to the right side of my body.  My family care doctor prescribed me a steroid and steroid cream.  The oral steroid has only made me grouchy and fat!  I'm probably going to stop taking it since it hasn't helped the rash much.  Good luck getting rid of yours!
    • Had The rash for years before I went gluten-free. My rash took about a month or two to heal and vanish. When I get glutened the rash areas start to itch a bit- besides being constipated it's my only clue! good luck and be patient 
    • Kaiser offers the full panel, but a primary care MD can not order it -- only a GI.  Again, a visual is not needed.  Damage is usually severe if it can be seen visually (e.g. Scalloping, etc.).  Villi are microscopic though.   When you got the referral, you probably should have found a GI on your own by searching through the Kaiser directory and finding one who has some mention of celiac disease in his bio.  Too late, but that is kind of how it works.  Your PCP does not know the GI docs.  The scheduler just makes appointments.  So, now,  that you have been referred to a GI, you can probably schedule another appointment on your own by passing your PCP.  Wait first for the pathologist's report.  They might not put it on the patient portal, so get a hard copy for your records.  If it is negative and they took four or biopsies, you will have your answer. Then you can consider trialing the diet.  If they did not take enough samples, ask for the DGP and EMA tests, including the control test IGA deficiency (which affects 10% of celiacs, but do not quote me on this).  You could wait a few years until you think damage is severe enough to find.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose.  It can develop at anytime.   Don't forget you might have a gluten sensitivity too and not celiac disease.   Kaiser responds well to requests in writing.  Try the patient portal first before a registered letter.  If they are not following the standard level of care, they are at risk for a lawsuit.  Be nice.  Say something lame in your letter like,  "We had such a nice short visit, so I  forgot to ask ....blah, blah, blah." My own relatively new PCP is still learning about celiac disease.  That is okay.  At least she has an open mind.    
    • It is gluten free...I eat it regularly and have had no issues and it tastes yummy. 😀
    • A quick update: I emailed my primary doctor and she is on the same page as the GI doctor, saying the Endoscopy looks normal. Even before we've gotten the biopsy back.  By the way, I should mention I'm dealing with Kaiser in the Bay Area, CA and everything I've found about Kaiser on these forums is horrible and similar to my own experience.  I specifically asked about all the components of the full celiac panel and that I would like to get it and all she said was: "The lab tests are not perfect. Although they may indicate an increased risk for celiac, they are not as specific as the biopsy." So, now we should just ignore the positive IgG? How am I supposed to know if I'm IgA deficient if they don't test for that? I replied and asked again and she said that Kaiser doesn't offer the full panel. Why not? And I said I want vitamin and iron tests and no reply to that yet.
