Sprouted Bread

8 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever heard of "sprouted bread?" I am checking out all of the foods that are in or cafetieria at work, and one of the workers told me his sister-in-law has celiac disease. He said she is allowed to have "sprouted bread."

I'm just wondering if anyone has ever heard of this before?

Thank you-

Cindy :)

Yes, I'm curious too! My mom just bought Ezekiel (SP?) Bread, and I've heard that it's gluten-free. Is that true?

Ah... the sprouted bread debate. It pops up every once in a while, and at the end of the day, I don't think any of us have yet seen a sprouted grain bread that tests gluten free. _IN THEORY_, grains that have completely sprouted and are no longer relying on the seed (grain) for energy, have converted ALL of the gluten that was there into energy to grow the sprout. The problem is, this isn't a step function, it's asymptotic. That is, you approach "no gluten", but can't ever know when you're close enough. To make the matter worse, since these things are being done in large batches, seeds don't all sprout at the same rate, and it's made in a large factory, cross contamination ends up getting you gluten in those loves anyway.

Shoot! My mom and I both ate a slice, too. :( We should have checked the package before assuming. Well, I'm definately not going to eat it again!

Ack, my mom just looked at the package and it had barley malt in it and it wasn't even 'sprouted'. I'm afraid I'm going to really pay for this one later! :unsure:

Thank you so much for the info! We're just OUT of luck for bread I guess. I did try the Kinnikinnick. Its ok. I make it past the first half of a sandwich (if that) then I end up throwing the rest out. Too dry! :)

This weekend I decided to roll the sandwich meat in lettuce as someone suggested - I liked that better than dry bread!

Thanks again everyone. B)

Cindy, try this with the Kinnikinnick bread, it comes out better this way:

Keep it frozen until you need it. Take as much as you need out of the freezer and put pieces in a single layer on a plate. Microwave for about 30 seconds or until it is soft. It stays more moist this way and doesn't taste so dry. If you just thaw a couple pieces and make a snadwich it will end up tasting dry. I like to toast the peices a little bit, but that is just me, I have eaten it a lot of different ways. Toasting it a little seems to help it stay together, untoasted it starts to fall apart, but not as bad as ofther gluten-free breads. Most are like cardboard, only they crumble when you eat them!

My favorite is the Sunflower Flax Seed bread. The White Sandwich bread is really good too.

God bless,

Mariann

You can also roll stuff in a corn tortilla. I've given up on gluten-free bread for sandwiches.

    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
    • Sorry to hear about your no meat, Ennis. It sucks his celiac disease messes with people in different ways. Matt I was living on sweet potatoes but now they bloat me, which is odd. Avocado's would be to much fat, I think. I'm three weeks in today, and the past few days my C has improved. So that's some good news. I do know I need to stop worrying about the weight loss. So easy to Google and worry. If I could get back to lifting weights and reclaim my shoulders I'd be more calm and less stressed. For now I'll just have to get used to being lean. Anyone up for a symptom swap. My off on fatigue has shown up. I will swap for headaches brain fog. R Be well all
