I Found Bread! (australia)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi! I haven't written on here in aaaaaaages (i've been lurking hehe :P) but I got so excited about some bread I found that I just had to shout it from the forum rooftops! :lol:

It's from a gluten-free bakery in Sydney but they deliver around eastern Australia. It's called Choices Gluten Free (http://choicesglutenfree.com.au) and they only make gluten-free stuff so there's no chance of contamination (i've had problems with contamination at non dedicated bakeries before). All the loaves of bread are free from gluten, egg, soy and dairy, and they have all sorts of other goodies which aren't as free of allergens as the loaves but sound delicious (I've had the chocolate danishes so far *drool emoticon*).

I've still needed to toast the bread before munching it but I actually enjoy eating it! I've been having toasted sandwiches for lunch these past few days and haven't needed to smother them in condiments to take the bread flavour away like I used to do, yay!!

My favourites so far are the pumpkin and herb bread, the multigrain bread and the fruit bread. I've got some bread rolls and bagels in the freezer which are awaiting me so i'll have to let you know what they're like too :)

I'll have to start writing more often with my discoveries! (loving Orgran crispibread too)

I hope you all have a very merry and gluten free Christmas! :D

Isn't it great when you find something you love? I have tried Choices products and they aren't bad but I definately prefer Lifestyle Bakery. www.lifestylebakery.com.au . Their Chia seed Loaf is the best Gluten Free bread on the market in my opinion. I cant wait for easter when they release their hot cross buns!!!

Oooh i've heard about that bread! I haven't managed to find it yet though :( Does it have soy in it? I'm not that great with soy...would make an exception for extreme deliciousness though :P

Have you tried the Naturis Organic Gluten free Buckwheat loaf? We really like it. I buy about 6 loaves a week and then just repackage them into 4 slices in a zip log and freeze them. We toast them before we have them. You can buy the bread at Franklins or Harris Farmers . I don

I'm a choices devotee, I don't eat any other bread as have been majorly disappointed by the others.

I treated myself to the brownies the other day, they were pretty good but more of a muffin I suppose. Still worth having though, much better than their biscuts.

I'm with Aussie peg - I love their fruit bread, it's so lovely. I use the wholemeal for everyday, with occasional pizza bases. I had the bagels the other day, they had a good outer texture.

If you can make it to the original choices shop ( I think it's in turramurra) there are a couple of shops next to it that have some good gluten-free products too :)

I'll be keeping my eye out for the naturis too, can't hurt to have some variety. If you get a chance to try the freevos banana bread mix, go for it, I made my gluten-eating family jealous with it!

Hello Peggy and all

Hello to others also from Australia. I got excited I found bread too, and I am near Brisbane a couple of hours away. Isn't that wonderful.

I found mine at Woolworths in Lismore, but I am sure that u may be able to go to other Woolworths as well, to give it a try. Will keep also that bread in mind.

The bread I found was

Gluten Free Country Life Bakery, White. But it is not milk and egg free, and has other things in it as well. If I end up with what I think I have allergy wise, then we are probably not going to be able to eat this, but will have to look at the bread u have just said. I wonder if Woolworths could order some in?

It is good to share info, because u can get a choice as well. I also found a good range of gluten-free products in Woolworths, which really surpised me and delighted me.

BTW I have been going to Brisbane Weekly seeing specialists at Greenslopes. Going to Windsor in Brisbane again for my family's allergy test. And then possibly laser treatment for allergies etc...r u near there?

Have a great day

Peace 4 1

Hi All,

I'll have to try that Choices bread. I was just diagnosed this week, and tried my first gluten free bread a few hours ago and it wasn't very appetising! The pasta on the other hand, was pretty tasty, I guess you've got to take the good with the bad :)

I live on the Gold Coast, but go to Brisbane regularly does anyone know any tips for local places that sell tasty gluten free food? I've heard Sol breads are good, but have yet to try them??

Thanks :)

HOT CROSS BUN TIME!!! :) Hurray! I love Easter and I'm so glad that being gluten free doesnt stop me from eating my favourite food ever hot cross buns. I love Lifestyle Bakery's buns and I'm really excited because I just discovered that you can buy direct from them online now! www.lifestylebakery.com I really love their bread crumbs too.

I've posted about how much I love choices in the past, but I've found another bread that I like even more!

Zehnder bread - stocked in IGA stores mostly. I had the wholemeal, it was amazing! It does have more ingredients than choices, I think it includes soy and yeast so it won't agree with as many people, but it really was delicious. It had that bounciness to the bread, I made my non-gluten-free family members taste it and they were impressed!

I was away from home at the time I found it so I toased it in my fry pan, it's great as long as you make sure you dry it out really thoroughly.

I'm off to get some more, but will stick with choices too :)

I have found I love the Brighterlife bread mix. There is no Wheat, Soy, Egg, Gluten, Corn, Artificial Colours, Preservatives, Yeast, Salicylates, Amines, Casein, Fructose, Low in Fat

and Low in Sugar. The cake mixes and pikelet mixes are great too - there is a CWA style cookbook too where you can make nearly anything by a simple 2 minute mix :) As soon as I ate it - it just felt GOOD for me...

    • Yeah someone else said a few weeks ago that there local manger was very antimate that NONE of their shakes with celiac safe....as pointed out if one shake has gluten.....they use the same shake mixing machine...so THEY ALL will have gluten at that facility.....
    • I just saw your profile says thalassemia. My doc blames part of the microcytic anemia on thalassemia trait even though all my thalassemia gene tests have come back negative (and I don't have the right ethnic background). In a way I am hoping it is a FODMAP (carbohydrate) sensitivity instead of a gluten allergy because at least with the FODMAP you just have to stay low FODMAP and don't have to worry about crumbs and gluten cross-contamination like with celiac. I will check back in in 6 months once I see whether there are specific foods I can't eat or if it really does come down to gluten  Thanks for your support!!
    • Good for you for trying to manage your health.  My only suggestion would be to find another doctor.  Obviously, he does not even follow standard recommendations for screening.  I would worry that he overlooks other things too.  It never hurts to get a second opinion.  Second opinions have saved my family from unwanted surgeries and incorrect treatment.   The IgA (Immunoglobulin A) Test, in the case of celiac disease testing,  is a control test.  If he had ordered it, you would have known if the results are valid or not.  Now you are left in diagnostic Limboland.  Again, my TTG was negative it has never been positive even in follow-up testing.   You can go gluten free for life.  My hubby did that 17 years ago some 12 years prior to my diagnosis (per the advice of his GP and my my allergist).  But he will be the first to tell you that I get way more support from family, friends and medical. I wish you well!  
    • Okay so I had a peanut butter milkshake from steak n shake last night. I'm nearly positive that every thing else I've had recently has been gluten free. I have been feeling like my stomach is acting up a bit lately, but after this milkshake it is so much more intense. I considered maybe I'm sensitive to dairy too, but in the last few days  I've had plenty of dairy that didn't make me react  like this. The steak n shake website didn't list any real specifics on ingredients for milkshakes. I read in other forums that some shakes use a malt mix or syrup ( which I didn't see mentioned on the site), but it is corn based. I called the my local steak n shake and the guy said he is "pretty sure" it's corn based.  I called the customer service line and they couldn't tell me if it was gluten free or not. I found ONE listing on a website that said all shakes were gluten free expect peanut butter and one other flavor. I know this seems like a lot for one shake, but I'm so tired of not knowing what makes me sick. Has anyone else had an experience with this or has anymore knowledge about steak and shakes products?
    • So my tTG-IgA result came back negative. Doc did not do the total IgA so I could be in the 2% false negative. However my ferritin continues to fall (at 25 now so getting borderline to need another iron infusion, 6 months ago it was 50) and reflux was keeping me up at night so after the blood test I went on a gluten free and low FODMAP diet. 6 days later my reflux is gone! I had no idea it could work that quickly. I still feel like there is a lump in my esophagus and have a bit of difficulty swallowing (think I still have irritation in that area) but no more acid and regurgitation! Also have not had a single episode of gas or urgency or days with 8 BMs.  It has only been 6 days so maybe I am just having a good spell but am going to continue gluten free and low FODMAP for a month and then see if there are any FODMAP foods I can eat (but not gluten unless my doc decides I should have a biopsy) (I miss pears and apples). I guess the real test is to see if my ferritin levels start to go up-testing again in 6 months. The diet is very restrictive but worth it if it gets rid of the reflux and other symptoms. BTW post-menopausal (and before that I had an IUD for 10 years TMI) so no periods to blame for chronic microcytic/hypochromic anemia. Doc says "that's normal for you, you just don't absorb iron very well".
