What Can I Make For Bread?

7 posts in this topic

I'm at a loss. My son just got his Lame Advertisement test results back and it's not gluten that he's reacting to, but gliadin. He's got a moderate intolerance to wheat, rice, corn, baker's yeast (among others), and mild intolerance to rice, oats.

I can use quinoa flour, I think (though I have read on some sites, that it contains gliadin), and I can use buckwheat flour (at least until the second round of Lame Advertisement tests come back). I've used blends with rice flour before, but without yeast, I can probably only make biscuits, muffins, and maybe some Irish soda bread. Oh and severe dairy intolerance, and also eggs. ARGH.

He had pretty bad withdrawal for 3 days, from the wheat. He sounded like an addict, begging for one more bite of bread. It was horrible (he's 8). So I'm trying to figure out a dumpling recipe or biscuit or something bread-like. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

Removing rice from the equation makes things a bit more challenging, but it is still doable. There are many other gluten-free flours besides quinoa (which does not contain gliadin BTW) and buckwheat. Can your son tolerate any of these?

Tapioca starch/flour

Coconut flour

Teff Flour

Amaranth Flour

Sorghum (closely related to corn, so that one might be out)

Bean flours

Almond meal

Arrowroot

Millet flour

Potato starch

This may seem like a long list, but mixes of different flours generally perform better than a single type. I'm confident we can come up with a flour blend that will help you create a bread like substance for your son.

I look forward to your reply.

AFAIK, sorghum has no relation to corn. I have read that sorghum and millet are considered to be related by many but not all scientists who study such things (botanists?).

I gave up rice flour in favor of sorghum and millet, because rice flour is gritty. In fact, rice flour is the only flour I find gritty.

As for reacting to gliadin and not gluten, that sounds like an oddly mangled explanation, as if the doctor doesn't quite know what he/she is talking about. Without the gliadin protein, gluten wouldn't exist. For all practical purposes regarding gluten intolerance, the two are the same, though technically not. Recently I read that gluten forms when two proteins in the wheat combine, as it gets wet.

Anyway, I don't use yeast in my breads, nor dairy or egg, and I think they turn out good. But I like a dense hearty bread, not "white bread". I think you should be able to replace the rice flour in a given recipe with sorghum or millet, and it should turn out fine. Same with replacing the yeast with baking powder.

You could find a recipe to suit your needs for waffles. There should be replacements for all the ingredients. Like flax, chia seeds, egg substitute, applesauce, coconut milk, soy milk, sorghum flour, potato starch, etc. Then, I haven't tried it yet but, you can use them like bread. I don't know how good they would be cold... flippy I suppose, but toast them first. I am keeping my eyes and ears open for the different ways. Ex: reheat waffles in the toaster and put fruit filling or fruit on top or make a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. Grilled tuna, salmon, etc. sandwiches. Put ham, cinnamon/vanilla or blueberries in the batter. Put peanut butter/banana on top or fresh strawberries with some strawberry jam. Pizza toppings, spaghetti sauce and meatball open face sandwiches...whatever you can think of that is ok for your son. Freeze a batch ahead of time too. Label the "flavored" waffles. My daughter tried the homemade apple pie filling and said to make more. Have fun with it and also let your son decide what toppings and show him how to make the sandwiches if he is young. It would help him look forward to it instead of being upset. You can also freeze small containers of toppings for really fast sandwiches. Label them so your son can choose which one sounds good. Use the ideas on other bread replacements. I just did a quick search for gluten free dairy free waffles and found this site: glutenagogo.blogspot.com. It tells about flax and chia seeds and has a recipe for waffles. Then I found this site: www.care2.com/greenliving/flaxseed-egg-substitute.html. It tells how to use flax for eggs. Flax is super healthy.

I already use flax + water to replace eggs. From what I've researched, gliadin is in wheat, rye, oats, barley, kamut, spelt, amaranth, malt, and quinoa. Since gliadin is part of gluten, I don't understand how it can be part of more grains than gluten, but he was tested for gliadin and gluten, and he didn't react to gluten, but he did to gliadin.

He also can't have apples or strawberries. I have coconut flour, buckwheat flour, quinoa flour (though not sure if I can use it). I think I have some sorghum too. I'm waiting on his other tests to find out if he can have almonds. He also can't have peas. I'm waiting to hear about other legumes, to see if I can use some of the bean flours.

The idea to make sandwiches using waffles is a good one. The meatball sandwich is do-able, and hamburgers. I wish I could get him to eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches, since that's a good protein meal (he's also off turkey, chicken, lamb, pork, and tuna - so his proteins are limited).

I guess I'll just experiment with waffle recipes for now and see what I can come up with. Maybe I can even figure out a dumpling recipe with mix-and-match flours.

Thanks.

Gluten is a general term for protein storage in cereal grains. Many grains contain gluten (corn, for example), but it is not in the form of gliadin so it does not cause celiacs trouble. Gliadin is the name for the protein present in wheat and several other cereals within the grass genus Triticum (wheat, barley, rye, spelt, einkorn, emmer, durum and others). Gliadin is not present in oats, amaranth or quinoa. Amaranth, oats and quinoa are in totally different classes of plants, and contain different proteins. Malt is made from barley (most of the time). Oats containt the protein avenin, not gliadin, but are often contaminated with gluten grains. The only oats that are guaranteed to be free of gluten and/or gliadin contamination are grown in dedicated fields.

Hope this helps and din't make things more confusing. :)

Try this mix:

It's free of all the ingredients you listed, and it's remarkably good. (My non-gluten-free kids even try to steal bites of the toast I make with it.) It does dry out fairly quickly, so I usually slice it and freeze it as soon as it cools.

    • There is currently not any enzymes you take that will get rid of gluten, they are working on a promising one to reduce symptoms but all others out there right now are a bust and will not help you much if it all with gluten exposure, Celiac is a auto immune disease, your reacting to the proteins of gluten and it is attacking them and your own body.  I do suggest a digestive enzyme if you have food issues in general to help break them down. But this will not fix gluten exposure, reduce damage from gluten, or make gluten eating safe by any means. These current ones on the market are FAD ones target at healthy people and helping them with general digesting of gluten proteins but will not help you if you have celiacs to eliminate gluten reaction symptoms.
    •   Could try causally asking your family to get the blood test done next time they are at the doctors. They could have it and only have minor or no symtoms to it. There is a form of it called silent celiacs with no outward symptoms but it is still destroying your villi and causing your body to slowly degrade. Doing so could shed some light on other issues, make family more understanding to your issues, and help them out in the long run.    I was adopted at only a few weeks old, so my issues run a bit deeper with both leaning about this disease and getting anyone in the family to understand it. Does not help my birth mother still to this day refuses to release updated medical records or accept any kind of contact.    >.> I give advice all the time, I like to feel useful to others, and can be oblivious to others feelings and reactions due to a form of autism called Aspergers.  Bit of a pain, but the feeling of being of use to others is very rewarding even if sometimes confused with being helpful over being a ass or someone overly intrusive.    I just wish others had helped me out earlier with this disease.   PS Anonymous, you keep posting on older threads, ALOT recently. Not a bad thing, just something I picked up on and piqued my interest/concern with how out of date some information might be.
    • Hello Anonymous, and if nobody has said as much yet, welcome Don't worry (difficult to do when it can cause anxiety :P) it's very early days and you have a lot of healing to come.  If you've not already seen it there's advice and further info here:    It gets easier over time as checking becomes routine, you know your 'safe' products and your eating pattern changes. You'll get there  Maybe start a thread of your own if you'd like some input from others? Finally, back on topic. My Aunt has narcolepsy and although she's fiercely resistant to giving up gluten she has now made a connnection to eating bread and it's onset. As often, not conclusive but suggestive...
    • Hello again   Well first thing is the - Usual disclaimers apply... and this is something you have to follow up with your doctors as you know. But it's helpful sometimes to get another perspective so here's this layman see's from outside.  What I have seen from the various results posted here is that people's numbers vary wildly and, just as important, the numbers often don't bear any direct relationship to the level of intestinal damage revealed via endoscopy. Ultimately although you're not scoring much above positive, you are scoring a positive  and there are a couple of other risk factors you've mentioned that are suggestive if not conclusive - you have another autoimmune which raises the odds of having another one for example.  You've had two tests that are positive. The purpose of taking the second test was either to invalidate or confirm the first. I'd suggest it's achieved the latter, at least inasmuch as a GI may want to check you via endoscopy. That's still the 'gold standard' of celiac diagnosis and would give you an idea if there's any intestinal damage. I suspect with 2 positive tests and the history above that's what they'll suggest.  If your doctor or GI doesn't want to proceed with that you have a decision to make. Push for a second opinion or new doctor or if you're done with testing give the gluten free diet a proper try. Make a journal and see if some of those subtle things you reference may actually be symptoms. Fwiw, there are a lot of people here whose thyroid issues improved dramatically once they were gluten free, so whether celiac or gluten sensitive you should certainly give the diet a try. Only however once the testing is completed and remember: 
    • Hi! I've just been recently diagnosed as Celiac through the whole biopsy-shebang, and I have a little bit of insight on the whole diagnosis thing and how I was eventually diagnosed, and my advice for you. Brace yourself, this might be a bit long, but it might be worth the read and I promise I will eventually get to the point. If you don't want the huge story, skip to the long line of capital As: I first saw my doctor when I had a few problems swallowing. I've compared it to when you're nervous and you feel like you have a lump in your throat - but after I eat and (sometimes) drink. I just mentioned briefly it to my family doctor when I was addressing another issue, but right away he referred me to a gastroenterologist and ordered a barium swallow x-ray test. The x-ray came back completely normal, and so the g.e. then suspected GERD, put me on acid blockers to see if they would work, no harm done sort of thing. The only thing I got out of the acid blockers were the side effects, so it was back to square 1. The g.e. said that the next test he could do was an upper endoscopy with biopsies. (hint: the celiac test!) Wanting to find a solution to my problems, the endoscopy was scheduled. Pretty painless, I was in and out in a day, but the results took much much longer. Biopsies, or the little pieces of my esophagus, stomach, and small intestine, were sent to the lab, and they came back clean. I didn't really go back to the g.e. for a whole year after that because life became busy, I wasn't prompted to follow up, and I just dismissed the swallowing problems the best I could and went on my way. Now, I've never been huge on the gluten, big bread-y sandwiches or croissants or pies were never foods that I super "enjoyed". I wouldn't feel bad after eating them, I just didn't like the taste of bread so much, but I loved cookies, cake and a lot of other things that do have gluten in them. I lead a lowish gluten life but I wasn't really monitoring it that way. Everything changed when I got really nasty (systemic) poison ivy. My eyes were swollen shut, and the rash was everywhere. I almost went to the hospital, but cooped out at the family doctor's place and got a script for prednisone (a steroid). But, I found that after I had tapered off the steroids, I had magically become lactose intolerant. So back to the family doctor again probably because I broke my toe or something, but we also got to talk about this magical lactose intolerance business (because I love anything dairy and it was indeed devastating). He was surprised as there is literally no correlation between steroids and becoming lactose intolerant. He asked me if I still had the swallowing problems, which I did, and so it was back to the g.e. for round 3. because my family doctor "does not believe in coincidences". Meeting with the G.E., he mainly addressed the swallowing problems telling me that he had done what he could to diagnose with the technology that we had at the highly specialized hospital that we were at, and I would have to travel about 3 hours away to see a different doctor who would do some tests involving the muscles in the esophagus. But right before I was about to leave, we started talking about lactose intolerance. He brought up other foods that I was avoiding (if any), and then the conversation went to gluten. I mentioned that I had an aunt that was gluten-sensitive. He advised that I do the blood test that can show an indication of celiac whenever in the future. I decided to do it that day. At this point in time, I was not eating much gluten because of the fact that it was personal preference. The normal range for values in this test is from 0 to 20. A few weeks later, I learned that I scored a 35. A second upper endoscopy with biopsies was scheduled, but this time I was told to eat a moderate amount of gluten everyday before the procedure. I ate about two slices of bread per day, which is more than I normally would. I was normal for the first two-three weeks of the gluten plus diet, but then I became really sick. I started getting the normal celiac symptoms, like diarrhea and extreme tiredness. Near the end, I had debilitating stomach pain and I was 2 times more asleep than awake each day. I couldn't do the 2 pieces of bread a day some days, but the pain was still there. I knew that I wouldn't ever have to force myself to eat bread for a test ever again. I was called a few days before my endoscopy telling me that a kid in a worse state than me had to take the OR during my time. I forced myself to eat more bread for another month and a half. The day finally came. I was diagnosed celiac, which I have concluded to be initiated by (1) the steroids/poison ivy and (2) the gluten binge fest.  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Celiac Disease isn't completely understood yet. Most of the time if you weren't showing symptoms when you were a baby (so your case) it means that celiac was/could be triggered by an event in your life that causes stress on the body (like stress, physical injury, etc.).  The positive result that you got from the blood test doesn't automatically mean celiac, but it could. Here's some options: Talk to your doctor (or a different doctor) or even a specialist gastroenterologist (you can get a referral from a family doctor (general physician)) and see if you can do the blood test again, you have to have some kind of gluten for this to work in advance, so if you don't want to break your gluten-free streak, than don't really invest in this option. If you feel comfortable, you could even ask to do this test under a few scenarios (no gluten (now) and after a gluten binge, compare results). If you do this test and your indication is low off gluten and then high after gluten, I'd probably skip the biopsy. That's a strong enough sign that you don't need to put yourself through the painful-gluten binge. Maybe this is what that first doctor just assumed. But having that test when you haven't had any gluten could make the difference - it acts as a control. Go straight to the biopsy. You could do this, but I'd probably do the blood test first. I went through a lot of stress with the gluten-binge that you have to do to get an accurate result, you would also be breaking your gluten-free diet that may/may not be helping you right now. Do nothing, stay on your gluten free diet hoping that it is helping you. But if you are not celiac or gluten-sensitive (celiac before it starts to wreck your small intestine), going gluten free isn't healthy - you can do some research on this if it interests you. If you feel bad/unhealthy after going gluten free it's probably a sign. Good luck, also know that you might come to a point of stress in your life that can start celiac's destructive path. Ultimately, it is your body, and you should not feel forced or hesitate to act on health issues that impact you.
