Finding The Right Bread...

I have just been diagnosed with celiac disease. I am 20 years old, and I am trying different foods, and trying to cope with this.

My hardest food to find is bread. I am already a picky eater as it is, and I like just normal white bread. Well now I can't have bread at all. I have tried the brown rice bread and tapiocca bread, I didn't really care for either of them. They are both thick, and have a spongy feeling to them, and I am on medicine that makes my mouth dry, so its even harder trying to eat this bread. Does anybody know of any kind of bread that just taste like white bread, and isn't real thick and spongy??

I keep seeing the bread that you can make yourself, does anybody know is that worth trying?

Well if anybody has any suggestions please let me know!

there is one i particularly like. its kinnikinnick quick bread mix. it is very easy! 3parts mix with 2 parts liquid. stir well and bake. and its probably the best i have tried. others i like are pamela's bread mix and gluten free pantry sandwich bread. both of those taste good and have a decent texture. i like these better than prepackaged breads

there are good recipes out there... i, however, have not yet been able to bake one i was content with. in time though i hope to learn to do this more successfully. i hope you find one you like though!

I haven't tried/looked for store bread since the beginning of being Gluten Free. I haven't found a store bread that I cared for.

I like Gluten Free Pantry Bread Mixes, they are good. The Sandwich bread mix is good for everyday stuff. They also have a French bread mix that you can do bread or pizza crust with.

Lately I've stopped with the bread mainly b/c I don't have time to make it. My sub for bread is the Mission White Corn Tortillas. I heat them up on the stove in a pan (brown each side a little so it doesn't break). I make taco shaped wraps with these, peanut butter/jelly and fold in half, taco meat etc. The tortillas are easy to make stuff with plus they are inexpensive and in any grocery store.

A lot of it is trial and error with what you like the taste of.

Good Luck

Hi guys!

Thank you! That sounds good. I will try those ideas! I think I will get the sandwhich bread mix too, and the tortilla's! Thanks! will let you guys know how it taste!

I know this is very tricky, and it is basically everything is pretty much experimental I have learned. Also being living at home still it is very hard that the whole house is like gluten gluten gluten, and here I have to be gluten free.

I have found great cereals, and pasta, and things like that, but that is about it.

Well I am going to go now. Talk to you gusy soon, once again thanks for everything!

I just stopped eating bread all together, personally.

Sorry that's probably not much help, lol.

I find that most baked flour goods irritate me. I'm not completely

intolerant to them, but my body doesn't like them much. I eat mostly

rice, raw produce, beans, meat, and a little bit of cheese.

The following is a link to the recipe for my favorite gluten free bread from Gluten Free Girl. (I hope the link copies, I'm not very good at this!) It's also a favorite of the non-gluten-free members of my family -- they start eating it as soon as it comes out of the oven!


I have made a lot of gluten free bread from mixes and recipes. To me, this is by far the best. The recipe is long and intimidating at first; but, after making it a couple of times it's not a big deal. Usually, I make a double batch, slice it, and freeze it. Then I can just toast for sandwiches, breakfast, etc.

Also, I just got a bread machine and Annalise Robert's cookbook "Gluten Free Baking Classics for the Bread Machine". I have made several bread machine loaves using her recipes. All very quick, easy and great taste and texture. My non-gluten-free 4-year-old still refers to the Gluten Free Girl recipe as "the real bread", though.)

Good luck!

    • Do a little research?  Google and then check out the manufacturers and see what is available in your area?  Read some threads about products that people are discussing and look them up?  I think most of us know what we can get in our area but would have no clue about where companies ship to or how they handle wholesale transactions. You haven't said what type of business - a bakery? Grocery?  Restaurant?   I think that if you are really serious about a "gluten-free business" you would put a bit of work into it. 
    • That doctor is delaying unnecessarily! If he's been sick for 2 months already, another 3 months is cruel and unusual.
    • IT could be many things, I find I have a gastric dumping issue with some meals, I know some food intolerance I have will trigger it. I know If I do not start my day with a big glass of hot liquid and magnesium and have it before a meal, that meal will sit it my stomach till it makes me sick and vomit it up 4-6 hours later. I know for me meats do not digest. they just sit in my stomach til I vomit them back up. Animal fats and certain oils do not digest same thing. just float in my stomach til I puke them up when they start going rancid in my stomach 4-6 hours later. I find digestive enzymes are a MUST. I take 2-4 times the suggested dosing, and even extra bromine with heavy protein meals.

      There is another issue where some people have weak stomach acid there for the stomach does not digest food nor dump it. If you have this issue then betaine hcl will help this. For me it was not my acid but a enzyme issue.
    • I want to establish a gluten free business and i want to know the accredited suppliers for gluten free products in order not to get cheated by fake products from suppliers  is there a list available ? And can they export to other countries ?!  Thanks 
    • I am sorry that your daughter (and you) are experiencing this.  After diagnosis, celiacs need adequate follow-up care.  When was the last time her antibodies were checked?  Have they come down?  Are they still very elevated?  This link verifies what I said: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ By testing you can help rule out active celiac disease.  It can take most celiacs a year or years to recover from celiac disease and all the collateral damage that can come with it.   Then you might consider a dietician who is knowledgeable about celiac disease.  Often going gluten free is not enough.  People tend to just find substitutes for their already unhealthy food choices.  She should focus on fresh fruits, veggies, meat, nuts, dairy, legumes, rice, etc.  and avoid processed foods until she has really mastered the diet.  The learning curve is so steep!  Read our Newbie 101 thread found at the top of our Coping section.  It contains helpful tips.   Autoimmune thyroid is very common with celiac disease.  Be sure to have her thyroid checked and antibodies tested for the thyroid as well even if other thyroid lab markers are okay.   Besides the lack of periods, have her other symptoms improved?   I wish you both well!  As a Mom myself, I get the worry!  We want our kids to be safe and healthy!    I am glad you are championing her health!   Oh, did the rest of the family get tested even if symptom free?
