Against The Grain

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

They don't have any in California :( :( :(

Sounds amazing though.

Just out of curiosity..what are the ingredients like? Are they dairy free too?

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.

    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
    • LexieA, This thread might help you. You say you never have "heartburn/GERD". You can have something called Silent Reflux. It  could also be NERD. some of these links are in this thread but I will post some releavent information in this reply as well. here is a good overview of the difference in this fox news article. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/11/13/gerd-or-nerd-new-type-acid-reflux-doesnt-respond-to-drugs.html but if your throwing up it is probably from Bile Relfux. . . . instead of acid reflux. I actually wrote a blog post on celiac.com about these conditions. the NYTimes article called Bile Reflux a "Shadowland" in Medicine and part of the reason for the title of the post. here is the NYtimes article about some of the issues you are describing. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html throwing up is actually a protective reaction. and this normally protect us from poison's or food poisioning etc. but when our biofeedack loop is broken down like having bile in the stomach instead of the small intestine . . . it can be hard to break this cycle. The green portion is probably the bile portion. It is actually very caustic as Plumbago pointed out.  this would/coul scald our insides (lower GI/Small Intestines). Normally stomach acid is neutralized by bile after it leaves the stomach . .. not while in the stomach. I wouldn't never recommend anybody do this on purpose . .. but if you are already puking your food up then simply buy a pH test kit. testing your food/chyme/puke (food outside the body) you will quickly get an idea of how acidic/basic your food chyme (digested food) is. It will almost be a pH of 4.0 or more. the paleo nurse explains this well why strong stomach acid is important to your health. http://thepaleonurse.com/the-truth-about-stomach-acid-why-low-stomach-acid-is-jeopardizing-your-health/ quoting the paleonurse. "In the infinite wisdom of the human body, the stomach was designed to produce the acid that is necessary for proper digestion of food.  When functioning properly, the parietal cells of the stomach secrete hydrochloric acid that bring the stomach pH to a range of approximately 1.5 to 3.0" if it is a higher pH than this you can benefit from taking BetaineHCL to restore your stomach acid to more natural level. . . especially if you are not already taking PPI's since a proton pump inhibitor is lowering stomach acid. .. . by their very ability to cut off almost all stomach acid production. **** this is not medical advice I only know taking powdered stomach acid (BetaineHCL capsules)  helped me. I was not barfing my meals though. . . so your experience my be different. Maybe Ennis_tx will comment because he has some of the same symptom's/issues. But if I was puking I think I would be curios to know what my pH really is? And not Assume? anything at this point. If you test your stomach pH with easy to buy pH strips you will know whether it really is high pH (low stomach acid or a little stomach acid as your describe it) or low pH (really high stomach aid) that is causing the issue's. Once you know for sure you  will know who to go about correcting it. Supplementing with BetaineHCL is fairly harmless . . .unless you have an ulcer. And you will/would probably know it instantly if you take some BetaineHCL and it feels like someone is putting out a cigarette in the middle of your stomach.  It is acid burning your sore/ulcer. thankfully eating protein/food quickly neutralizes/raises stomach acid especially when taken with a glass of water. staying hydrated with a meal also helps improve digestion so be sure to take some water/drink like a tea or juice etc. for example if you want to the BetaineHCL to work properly. Milk has the opposite effect.  If you feel a burning milk can coat the lining of your stomach helping to erase/ease the effect of strong acid. And why people who eat hot **** five alarm peppers aka known as Hot heads keep milk close by if they need to dampen the fire in their stomachs from eating too many peppers. . . . and drinking water can aggravate this practice of eating the hottest peppers you can find. I hope this is helpful. I have rambled on long enough. be sure to read the sickboy user in the medhelp thread of how he helped his GERD/bile reflux. here is medhelp link for easy reference included in the "silent reflux" thread if you haven't read it yet. https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/UNCONTROLLABLE-BILE-REFLUX-PLEASE-HELP/show/738242?page=1 he was suffering for 5 years and got better so don't lose hope. It can seem very daunting but people on this board do get better. we have used different methods but people do get better. again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me. good luck on your continued journey but it is not a long way back if you know the way. 2 Corinthians (KJV) 1:3,4 3) “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4) who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them (sufferer still suffering)   which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” posterboy by the grace of God,    
    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
