"tinny" Taste In Breads
0

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We're still fairly new to celiac and haven't tried a whole lot of different brands and products. We have noticed a distinctly "tinny" or metallic taste in the gluten-free breads we've made. At first we thought it was from the brand new bread machine and would eventually go away with use. I have only made breads in it that are primarily rice flour. However, we then noticed the same taste in the Bob's Red Mill pizza crust mix, for which I did not use the bread machine. We've noticed it several times, in fact. Since the main ingredient in the pizza crust mix is rice flour and the brand of plain rice flour I've been buying is Bob's Red Mill, I'm wondering ... does all rice flour have a "tinny" taste? Is it only Bob's Red Mill rice flour? Could it be something else altogether? Rhetorical question -- of course, it could be, but rice flour seems to be the common denominator.

Has anyone else noticed a taste like this? My family has individually commented on it so I know it's not just me. Thanks.

Actually, if you're using Bob's mixes, it's probably the BEAN flour in them, not the rice flour, that's giving you that taste. A number of people find it distasteful, as do I.

The breads we've made using bean flour as one of the flours were not good. We like beans, but not bean-flavored bread. The bread I make most often does not have bean flour in it, and it's not a mix. I don't think I noticed bean flour in the pizza crust mix either, but I could have overlooked it. Hmmmm ....

In that case, you may simply not really agree with the taste of rice flour yet. You might try using half sorghum flour in whatever recipe you're using, I find that it has the taste closest to wheat. 1/4 of the recipe buckwheat flour always adds a lovely flavor, but will make what you're baking a bit heavier, so not good for cakes.

I don't like the bean flour either but Bob's flour mix (bean) makes really good waffles.

    • I can definately identify with this. I half-laughingly refer to myself as an 'elder orphan'.   I can't afford anything like a secret santa but would love the opportunity to exchange holiday cards with others here.  It is comforting in a way to realize that I am not the only person who is isolated but kind of sad to know that there are others in the same boat. When I talk to folks with large close extened families who endlessly complain about them I just want to slap them sometimes.
    • Yes IELs can be linked to other things. However, increase in IELs, loose stools, and a good response to a gluten free diet would point to celiac.  Celiac panels vary lab to lab and not all labs run all of the tests so you might want to post here after you get your results. My brother was negative to the labs run but they failed to run the DGP test in him (which I have tested positive on before). He is a biopsy confirmed celiac.  Thyroid issues can give you the runs, and lipase can indicate how well your pancreatic and gallbladder system is working, both can also cause tummy issues. Both issues are also common in celiacs as mentioned by others. Sounds like you have a great doc.  Last, my initial last biopsy was read by a hospital pathologist to be increase in IEL. The slides were read by a celiac specialist at that same hospital after they were re-cut (don't ask, I have no idea) and read Marsh 2-3A damage with areas of normal villi.   
    • Hi Benjamin and welcome You've found a good site. Everyone above has given you good advice I just wanted to reinforce this point from Ravenwoodglass: Some people (like me), test negative for celiac but still have a problem with gluten. This is called Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and is not a well known or understood condition. Suffice to say if you do test negative, you shouldn't assume that gluten is fine for you, it may well not be. Best of luck! Matt
    • You're welcome I don't think any doctor should be too reluctant to request a blood test if you set things out for them in the right way. You have symptoms consistent with celiac/gluten sensitivity, you have anecdotal evidence (your positive reaction to going gluten free). So you have a good case.  If and when you get some tests scheduled you will have to go back on gluten. This can be rough. It helped me to come on here and document how I was feeling. Support from here helped me get through the challenge period. So do come back on if your doing the challenge.
    • I agree that you should keep eating gluten and get tested if you can.  The reason for the increase in symptoms after being gluten free is the antibodies flaring in response to you injesting what your body doesn't want you to consuming.  Your body is letting you know in no uncertain terms that gluten is not something it wants.  You don't have to consume a lot of gluten for testing. A couple slices of bread worth is enough.  There is a chance with most of your issues sounding like they are neuro related for a false negative. After testing you should IMHO go back to being strictly gluten free no matter what the results. Keep in mind that many doctors consider celiac to be a solely GI problem and won't test if you don't have gastro issues.  Sounds like your body is giving you the answer but a formal diagnosis can be helpful with family members and freinds taking the condition as seriously as you need to take it.
