Against The Grain

14 posts in this topic

I have to share this with everyone I know, because Against the Grain's Bread is absolutely the BEST gluten-free Product I have ever had!

I bought a frozen baguette on a whim at Wegman's hoping to make some bruschetta. And I thawed the bread on the counter for about half an hour and started slicing. I munched on a slice thinking it would be petty gross until toasted (like most gluten free breads are).

But instead, it was FABULOUS! It was gooey and soft on the inside just like real bread.

I almost started crying I was so happy and proceeded to eat the entire loaf.

But i figured, what the hell-I haven't had anything that tasted that good in over 5 years, I was aloud to eat the whole loaf.

Regardless, it is fabulous whether toasted or not.

This is the link to their website. they don't ship directly, but they do give you a list of places you can find their products in your state.

I HIGHLY Recommend it.

I agree with you there. I've been using their breads for a couple of months we have a local health food store that carries them and they are excellent. The are not good cold, you have to warm them up or nuke them but then they are so good!

Sounds really interesting. As I read your comments on how good their bread is, I realized that if I were to taste bread like that, I'd get scared, thinking it was gluten-filled! Funny, to think I have come to expect gluten-free breads to be notably different than the gluten-filled stuff, to the degree that I wouldn't feel confident no matter what the label says. I guess I'd only feel safe if I can make it myself. Quite a powerful motivator, pain can be.

They don't list the ingredients on their web site. Do you still have the bag?

We love all their products - bagels, baguettes, pizza and rolls. The ingredients for the baguette are tapioca starch, milk, eggs, mozzarella cheese, canola oil and salt. Everything's found in the frozen section. We put it in the oven for about 10 minutes to warm it up - my daughter eats an entire loaf in one sitting, too. And their stuff is even loved by the gluten eaters in my family.

Hi,

I haven't tried that bread but will go to their site and look to see where I can buy i! I also just found an amazing product. I first bought it in Wegman's but then found it at Whole Foods. The brand is called Wild Thymes (www.wildthymes.com). They make great sauces, marinades, dessings etc. I have tried a few things that were all amazing. Only a few of their items are not gluten free. What is cool is that on their website they have the ingredient list and nutritional labels, so you can see everything! They also have lots of great recipes.

Ah, thanks. I had a feeling it was going to have something I can't have. Looks like the only ingredients I won't react to are the tapioca and the salt LOL!

I agree absolutley delicious! Only wish it was lower in fat. Trust me I will indulge once in a while but I'm probably the opposite of most and have a wt issue from gluten so the extra fat will make it harder for me to lose. Actually having a hard time finding low fat, great tasting products. Love bread and have found another bread I love too by Le Garden(multi grain) but still higher in fat than I would like although so far this is the only bread I can find that compares to gluten bread, makes great sandwiches. So far haven't gained from the higher fat content but I'm sure it will catch up to me not to mention my colesterol. Anyone else finding this a problem and what do you do?

I think with the gluten-free "bread" type products they add the fat for flavor, in the form of oil, cheese, etc. I love Against the Grain but... the only thing I find that works it to either not eat it as often or exercise a lot more. Thankfully gardening season is here!

The company just sent me a file with nutrient info and ingredients of all their products. Every one of them has the same main ingredients: tapioca starch, milk, eggs, mozzarella cheese, canola oil and salt.

As for a gluten-free bread with lower fat content, I never add fat to my breads (unless you count what I spread on them). Thankfully, fat hasn't been a problem for me, but I find my breads turn out better without it anyway.

I'm beginning to see I'm in the minority, as I don't like "white bread". Even as a kid I liked whole grain breads best. Maybe my body needed the nutrients (I think it still does).

I read that people who tend to prefer dark meat (poultry and red) need more iron? I would guess that our tastes do tend to reflect our nutritional needs.

I have to chime in and say YES! Against The Grain stuff is freakin unbelievable. That's how I made my first garlic bread in years. Slice lengthwise and douse with pureed roasted garlic and melted butter, toast. That was hard. OH MY GOD!!! It's so good!

I agree with all of you AGAINST THE GRAIN GOURMET is the best!!!!! I DO NOT use any other rolls or baguettes. It is expensive but totally worth it. I never thought I would ever be able to eat a sandwich again. Now that I have tried these rolls even if there was a miracle drug to allow us to eat gluten and not get sick I would never want to eat another regular roll again. The gluten free ones are out of this world!!!! I am so disappointed that I have never gotten a chance to try their pizza. No where near me in PA sells it just the rolls. But I am not going to complain cause I can buy their other products.

    • Look for sweet rice flour with the asian products or visit an asian food store.    The combination of flours needed to make an 'all purpose' flour is a science.  You need to get each type right or it won't work.  I use white rice flour, sweet rice flour, sorghum flour and tapioca flour to create mine, Sweet rice flour is also called glutenous rice flour (not to be confused with gluten )    5 parts white rice, 4 parts tapioca, 1 1/2 parts sweet rice, and 1 1/2 parts sorghum.   Parts can be Cups or lbs or whatever your quantity your mixing,. Mix well and store in the cupboard.    Don't forget xanthan gum to stabilize.   Less is more with that.    
    • Hello again i heard somewhere that if you have been diagnosed with celiac disease after all the tests have been done you are entitled to a prescription of food containing gluten free food. I am in the uk but i thought this had been recently discontinued? Anyone help.
    • Hello thankyou its always great to know that other people are going through things the same time. Yes my endoscopy is friday coming at 8.15am, been through the procedure before for diagnosing a hernia so that side of things are ok, just not sure if i needed the biopsy at first being the blood test confirmed  positive but i know now that i do need it not just for me but also for my 11 year old daughter who could also be celiac later and it would be better for her to know 100% mum is celiac.
    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Hey all so ever since about a week ago I felt a sharp pain in my upper right quadrant, followed by a minor hotflash and it hurts to press on my right side. I'm extremely worried because I was admitted to the ER last night, blood came back fine, xray fine and ultrasound fine. What prompted me to enter the ER was the fact that now my breathing is affected..   SYMPTOMS SO FAR: Sharp Pain Touching My Right Side Minor weakness , no fever. Mucus in stools? (when i wipe its a yellow on the toilet paper sorry for tmi) Right shoulder soreness Mucus in jugular? Or lung!? The "pipe" you can feel on your neck going up to your head, somewhat warm to the touch. Aches to touch. Happens mostly at night. Began last night and returned tonight. Unusually smelly breath. Awful Constipation, when I CAN go barely anything comes out as its flaky. Slight Pain in right leg, comes and goes. Very active stomach, gurgling can be heard from as high up as my chest. Slight stomach pain relief when massaging. I'm very worried people I'm petrified of surgery and I don't want to die.. But I don't understand why everything would come clean if im experiecing these symptoms?   Anyways
