Jules Gluten Free Flour

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Just signed up for this forum, so forgive me if this is not posted in the appropriate place! I am an extremely super, super sensitive celiac so my question is directed at other super sensitives. Have any of you tried Jules gluten free flour? If so, did you react to it? I am cooking a Thanksgiving dinner this year and having some flour I can use would be very helpful. I have tried several of the pre-packaged varieties out there and reacted to them. I also make my own rice flour a lot, however it comes out gritty and coarse, and is not useful for baking. Jules website states that they use very strict manufacturing procedures, so it sounds promising. However, at 19.95 per bag, I'd like to have a better idea about whether I will have to throw it out or not! Anyone who has tried it please let me know..Thanks

I usually bake with several flours and have one flour blend in my cupboard which I have also not been satisfied with.....I have ordered Jules Flour and I should be getting my flour next week.....I was on the fence with the price too..BUT when I calculated out what I was paying for my usual Flour Blend it calculated out (with free shipping) to be cheaper, remember her bags are 5lbs and not 2 or 3 like some other flour blends.....She also offers a sample pack for you to try to see if you like it......Jules herself has Celiac so I think she would be very savvy with Cross Contamination Issues. I wanted a good flour blend to make all those Holiday Goodies I used to make without all that GRITTY and COARSE feeling you get from other flour blends. Jules Flour has a special buy 3 5lb bags and get free shipping. SO I thought I would try it!

I will let you know how it works...I do alot of baking so we will see!

There are several very high end flours that are wonderful. IE: Better Batter FLour: Meister's Flour:Domata Living FLour: Authenic FLour has super fine brown rice or super fine white rice flour. I use this to make Annalise Roberts flour blend for use with her wonderful cookbook. It is the best...Jules FLour blend.

When you buy preblended flours you do not have to add xanthan gum . Plus it is a correct blend, much easier for them to do the math instead of me trying to figure out how much of this or that!

It would be hard to say if you will react even if another sensitive person had success with a flour blend. Not everyone responds in the same way. For instance many on here love Bob's Red Mill but I react to it so I try to avoid that brand but for others its wonderful.

If anyone is looking for a stuffing mix that is good Celiac Specialies is a great one , seasoning pack included in separate packaging.

And you can have pumpkin pie without a crust! Just make your favorite filling , grease the pan or dish well add filling & bake. Perfect every time & a way lot less calories. We never eat the crust anyway...

Maybe a new flour mill would be a good idea? I got one recently and it is so much better than the coffee grinder that I was using. I make my own flour blends and that way I can visually inspect and wash the grain first. I have pulled out grains that looked like gluten from millet and corn. If Jules is really pure enough for a super sensitive, it would be worth the $20, it is a lot of work to make flour free of contamination.

Where did you buy your grain mill? that is really scary about the corn. Probably explains why I can't eat cornmeal without a reaction. Thanks!

Sorry I took so long to answer. I don't come on here very often. I bought a manual grain mill, Country Living. It's not for everyone to manually grind their grain. I really like it though. The first mill came tested with flour. They included a little package of the flour so I could see how fine it was. I freaked when I saw that in my gluten free house! I contacted them and they sent me a new one tested with rice. It was still highly contaminated with gluten and I had to put 12 cups of flour through it until the flour had undetectable amounts of gluten in it. If you get one, I suggest that you take it apart and carefully clean it before use.

    • Kim, I tried with those two doctors you mentioned and didn't have much luck at all. They are from the Ohio Liver and GI group. The local support group isn't local and the webpage hasn't been updated in 4 years and it seems that nobody with celiac disease wants to talk about things that help out here in Cinciny. I actually posted a similar plea for help some time ago laryssabeth. I went to the local dietitian that was recommended named Anita Duck but she was no help at all. It was a total waste of money and time in my opinion. She didn't know about cross contamination, parts per million, the different certification organizations and so on. I live in Bellevue, Ky. The so called "local group" that can't be reached actually is in Centerville area almost an hour from me. You both sound local and I'd love to bounce questions off of both of you on things you've tried, successes and failures. What part of town are you two from?
    • A quick perusal of Dr. Brownstein's website outs him quite quickly as a purveyor of pseudoscience. Though he may be an MD, he appears to have abandoned evidence in favour of selling stuff people don't need by making them afraid, using his authority as a doctor. Like all such individuals, what he says has some basis of truth (eg. hypothyroid disorders are quite common, the average North American has a terrible diet), but he twists it to create fear and take advantage of those who are less scientifically literate. Conspiracy theories abound to be found at: http://www.drbrownstein.com/dr-bs-blog/ Here is a criticism of his work: https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/does-your-antivax-doctor-have-another-agenda/
    • Almost 2 years into my diagnosis after losing about 35-40 pounds I have now added about 60 with clean gluten free eating. I also changed jobs which for me has been much more of a physical change, thus needing more calories I have finally been able to put back some pounds. It is possible, for me the clean diet which helped restore my guts let me finally start absorbing the nutrients I was lacking. 
    • Hi Niza, Try to eat lots of protein.  Meats, peanut butter, avocadoes, things like that.  Try to avoid processed (pre-made) foods like frozen pizza, cereals, pot pies, cookies etc.   There gluten-free versions of many of these foods, but they are best saved for later on like 6 months after going gluten-free. If you are just starting out gluten-free, eat a simple diet of mostly foods you make yourself at home.  Also, try not eat eating any dairy (milk, cheese etc) for a couple months.  Oats are also a thing to avoid eating for a couple months.  You may not have any problem with dairy or oats, but some people do. Welcome to the forum Niza!
    • I am. I went undiagnosed for years and years and I honestly thought I was dying. I had been trying to gain weight even before my diagnosis and could barely gain a thing. I am so relieved to actually have an answer as to WHY! I was just diagnosed last weekend so I still have a lot of internal healing to do after years of villus atrophy. I have been drastically underweight for some time now, although I am slowly gaining. I am currently eating around 2,500 calories a day and not doing any strenuous exercise. I am only 74 lb (at 5'2") and I started out at 67 back in the beginning of December. I eat as much as some of my guy friends eat in order to "bulk" when they are lifting heavy at the gym and yet I still seem to gain at a slower rate. Just goes to show how messed up your intestines can become after years of abuse.
