Can You Bake With No Starches? Or Sub?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I was just wondering if anyone knew or had pointers on baking without starches?

I can't have tapioca starch/flour (similar side effects like gluten) and arrowroot seem to not agree with me.

I cut out Nightshades due to reactions so that eliminated Potato Starch

Yellow Corn bothers me and Corn in general makes me bloat and too much = problems (sorry TMI).

Originally I was doing Potato Starch and Corn Starch but now with eliminating Potatoes I am just left with Corn Starch.

I made some waffles the other weekend and tested out subbing all the starches with corn and that was a no no it tasted normal BUT... did not react very well to it.

What do people do that cannot have or do starches? Do you just sub with more flour?

Any input is greatly appreciated

Thank you!!

Yes, check out the almond flour recipes. Also, there are other grains out there that may work for you if you can handle them... buckwheat, teff and others. Carol Fenster has a bunch of flourless cake recipes too; try googling that and see what you come up with!

Good luck!

You can find sweet potato starch in asian food stores. From what i've read, they are not part of the nightshade family. I've not used it in my cooking but it's worth a try.

Can you no have rice flour either? There are three different kinds: white, brown and sweet (or glutinous, as it is sometimes rather anomalously known).

Thank you for the posts about the book. The book looks really neat and the price was good compared to other books.

I bought teff the other week but got the whole grain by accident so have to grind it to flour and try it. Never tried Buckwheat will have to try that soon.

WOW the pizza looks really good and very easy to make. I am printing off the recipe to try very soon. Thank you so much! I saved the site to look through more later.

My main flours I have are Sourghum, White Rice Flour and Brown Rice Flour. I haven't tried the Sweet Rice Flour yet just because I live in a smaller town and cannot find it anywhere and haven't driven to Las Vegas yet to get it at Whole Foods (hopefully they have it). I was just in CA visiting family and looked at Henry's for it but nope.

Sweet Potato Starch... very interesting. I will have to keep an eye out for it. I know we do not have any stores like that near me but will look for it. Thanks

Thanks again for the posts. I will take a look at the SCD thread on here.

I don't recall seeing it at Whole Foods. You can always find it in an Asian market.

By the way, I really like buckwheat flour and use it quite a bit because I am limited in my flours too. I tried putting some Teff flour in pancakes over the weekend and it was very sandy/heavy and soaked up all the liquid which I had to keep adding and adding.... I will need more experience with that--maybe try some of Carol Fenster's recipes.

    • LOL yeah miralax was a joke for me WHOLE BOTTLE NOTHING, doctors thought I was lying. I found the ONLY thing that works for me is Magnesium Citrate, the bottled fizzy stuff for colon preps. Daily maintenance requires me to take Natural Vitality Calm daily, you dose to tolerance start off at 1/4 tsp 1-2 times a day and up it to the full dose over a week. If you get loose stools cut it back. You dose to tolerance with magnesium and with this disease a issue with absorbing it is very common, causing chronic constipation in many and requiring supplementation.
      Try going to a whole foods only diet for a while with soups and stews with veggies and meats also. Nut butters and avocados help lube up the system. I use some other seeds etc to add in bulk but I think we need to focus on clearing your out first before regulating.
    • I would say no even then....it belongs in its own little corner in hell. We have had members get sick from cross contact touching and handling paper mache, playdough, and dry wall spackle containing wheat then touching their mouths, or food.....heck you can inhale the powder from the sanding spackle and have it get trapped in the mucus in you respiratory tract to run down your stomach and make you sick......has happened to a few on many occasions.
    • Cross reactivity is a bit of a myth type thing, but we do get food sensitivities and intolerance issues that do creep up and they are always different for each person. A food diary and keeping track of what causes symptoms is what you need to do. Here is a true gluten avoidance list and a article on food sensitivities.

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden.
