I don't know anything about the Bosch bread machine, but I have a Kitchen Aid with the gluten-free setting and it makes really good bread. There are quite a few posts on this board regarding the Kitchen Aid machine and some very good bread recipes as well.

Hope this helps. :D

I don't know anything about Bosch bread machines but I have a Bosch Universal (mixer/blender) and love it.

I think that the Bosch universal mixer/blender is what I am looking into getting. It has a bread mixer on one side and a blender on the other side. My mother used this for her wheat bread and I wondered how it would do with the gluten-free bread.

I love it! I make 3 loaves at a time. It does just fine. I've tried making 6 gluten-free loaves but it came to the top almost. Trying to save on the frequency of which I make bread. The whole family is gluten free so we go through a lot of bread.

Thanks Andrea, I have a large family too... so I end up making lots of bread! Three of us seem to do better gluten-free so we just do everyone gluten-free to simplify things. Thanks for the input - I am putting the Bosch Machine on the top of my wish list :rolleyes:

I love my Bosch. I don't think I could do without it. My mom has had a Bosch for as long as I can remember and she is the bread "Queen".

Since I'm new to celiac I haven't taken the time to experiment with gluten free bread. But I can't see why it wouldn't work. I use my Bosch for mixing, chopping, blending, food processor, everything. Absolutely love it!

How do you modify it to make gluten free breads? I have one too LOVE IT but will need to learn what to look for in the finished texture of the bread vs what i've learned on the gluten breads we make and love.

Do you mix it less than 8 minutes, speed 1? Any suggestions here is welcomed ......love some of your receipies you make in your bosch too. I called the center in AZ where I bought mine but they couldn't tell me anything about Gluten Free bread making.....what a shame!!

Hi,

I have had the small Bosch for 26 years. (This is the one that can make 3 loaves, not 5) Before Celiac, I used it to make 2 or 3 loaves of whole wheat bread every week for my family. I still use it to shred vegetables for slaw or pickle relish, stir muffin batter, everything. It is the best purchase I ever made for my kitchen!

I have used it to make gluten free bread for myself since the diagnosis. I had several loaves that disappointed me and believe I've figured it out. The last loaf I made using Betty Hagman's sorghum flour blend (without bean flour) and it did fine. I even took sandwiches to work with the bread I made.

The cookbook, Gluten Free Gourmet Bakes Bread, has instructions for mixer breads and that is what I used. Because the Bosch is so powerful, don't beat the bread batter for 3 1/2 or 4 minutes. Just beat for 3 minutes and use the 3 not the 4 setting.

Good luck

Linda

Happy baking. -Julie ;)

I grew up with a Bosch, my mom's lasted forever, so that's what I got when I got married. However, my sister-in-law grew up with a KitchenAid and didn't like her Bosch as a result. She ended up selling it and getting a KitchenAid. So, I think it's really what you are used to. I have the Bosch universal mixer/blender combo machine. It's great! It comes with the blender and food processor (I love that one), the mixing bowl, a dough hook and wire whisk mixing attachments so I bought the cookie paddle mixing attachments separately and I think they work a little better for gluten-free bread making than the dough hook since gluten free dough is so much stickier. I don't generally mix dough for a full 4 minutes, maybe 3 max and usually more like 2 minutes on medium speed and that has been just fine for me.

Good luck!

I have a Bosch and have always used it for Whole Wheat bread until recently diagnosed. I was concerned about CC with it though. None of you have had that problem?

I just cleaned mine really well (the bowl, all attachments and base unit) when we started the diet. We didn't have any problems with it. I have the plastic bowl and I think you'd be fine with just cleaning it really well, it's not like a teflon pan or wooden cutting board where gluten can seep into the pores. If you're concerned about stuff that may have gotten into the center shaft of the bowl, you can actually replace that part, or just buy a new bowl.

Good luck.

    • I believe the talk around this forum is that cheerios are not gluten free enough for people with celiac at this time. I don't know if anything has changed on that and when their lawyer calls me I'll quickly delete this. haha  
    • Could be we generally say get off of dairy for a few months when going gluten free. The part of the intestines that produce the enzymes, and help break down dairy are associated with the tips of the villi, which are the most damaged if not gone in celiacs. THIS is why most of us end up with a lactose intolerance early on. And most can introduce it later after healing. As to her symptoms with it there was a bunch of research about dairy permeated the gut and causing neurological issues in a autism study I was looking at years ago. And there have been other studies about damaged intestines and how the hormones in milk can easier effect ones body.   Personally I also have a huge grudge against dairy on a personal level as it is not natural to suck on a cows tits and drink the stuff, nor your dogs, nor a rabbits......I mean come on even Human Breast milk you would find odd to drink as an adult right? Back in the past dairy was a great way to get calories and fats when there was famine, etc around I mean it is meant to make a calf grow into a 500+lb cow. But on a genetic and hormonal level it is not really for human consumption and now days the whole corporate BS propaganda push and dairy farms shove that oh its healthy stuff down your throat. There are plenty of dairy free options for everything feel free to message me if you need help finding anything I have been dairy free for over a decade.
    • The full celiac panel checks TTG IGA and IGG, DGP IGA and IGG, IGA, EMA as Jmg stated above. Your test included TTG IGA and IGA. If your IGA was low, a low on TTG IGA would be inconclusive. But your IGA is fine. A high on any one test is a positive for celiac and should lead to an endoscopy for confirmation. So I'd get tested for TTG IGG, DGP IGA and IGG and EMA since there are symptoms. Warning I'm not a doc.    
    • I did a gluten challenge for my endoscopy and requested a second blood test after my follow up with the consultant. I never did see those results but my GP said no celiac was indicated:  Which left me gluten free for life, that wasn't an option after the challenge, but with a less satisfactory diagnosis, one by omission rather than the definitive 'you're celiac' one I was expecting. Yes! I have been 'properly' glutened on a couple of occasions but on several more I've detected a change or a reaction based on what could only have been trace amounts. NCGS is as yet poorly understood but patients tend to have more neuro symptoms than digestive. That's definitely been my experience, although it was only after going gluten free that I realised quite how many digestive symptoms I had just been living with as 'normal'. Close friends and family get the full explanation. 'I have an auto immune disease similar to 'coeliac etc.' If they stay awake long enough I'll tell them about the less than perfect testing process I went through or the Columbia Med research and the possibility of a blood test soon.  They can see the difference between me on gluten and off it so they understand its not all in my head* If I'm ordering food in a restauarant or asking questions about food prep etc I will often just self declare as coeliac - people are aware of that and understand those requests are medical rather than fad diet based. I don't have any problem doing this, I'm not going to claim that and then cheat on dessert for instance and to be honest I expect once the research is complete the two conditions may wind up alongside others as different faces of the same coin.   In the meantime I safeguard my health and avoid getting into a detailed conversation about genuine gluten sensitivity versus faux hipster posturing!       *apart from the bits which are in my head  
    • I originally had it on my face and scalp. (22 years ago)  First biopsy with dermatologist came back as folliculitis.  Then when I had a new outbreak on my upper back, she was able to remove a nice clean blister and we got the diagnosis of DH.  She started me on Dapsone (100mg/day) and gluten free diet.  Now I take 25-50 mg/day.  My understanding at the time was that DH was the skin version of Celiac.  Did a lot of research on my own.  I met Dr. Peter Green at a Gluten free Vendors Fair and he said that a diagnosis of DH  IS a diagnosis of Celiac, even if no other symptoms.    So I stay gluten-free
