I Found Bread! (australia)
0

11 posts in this topic

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 :)

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...

    • Thanks so much! i really appreciate knowing that you would terrible if your number was similar to mine. I tell you, I really thought I was "okay" before I frequented this site. But the more I read about people's symptoms, and them improving, I keep comparing myself to them. And realizing I'm not quite ok. In fact, there's a lot that could be better. thank you both for arming me with more knowledge to approach the doc with. I do wonder if I'll ever be back to my old self. My husband sometimes comments on how different I am than I was when we were first married- super motivated and energetic. 
    • Hi Victoria! Gemini is right, you need a full thyroid panel in order to really see what is going on with your thyroid.  The remaining tests are Free T3, Free T4, TpoAb and TgAb.  The last 2 are antibody tests.  Ideally, your TSH will be around 1 and the Free #'s will be in 50-75% of the range.   I feel terrible with a TSH where yours is.  Mine is best very close to 1.  Thankfully, my endocrinologist doses based on symptoms! Start by asking your Dr for the full panel.  Give her all of your symptoms as well as your mom's history.  Hopefully, she is willing to order them for you.  Many Drs will only order TSH or that and Free T4, but you really do need all of them. This site is a great resource for all things thyroid: https://stopthethyroidmadness.com/recommended-labwork/ Good luck and please let us know how it goes!
    • Thank you! ive never just called a doctor and ask for a particular test... how do you do this? Do you have to convince them it's necessary first? i would love for these symptoms to resolve, as I've had a lot of them my whole life. Until I read a lot here, I never thought they weren't just, well, normal. my mom had problems with her thyroid. Had it removed in fact. 
    • What would be helpful, Victoria, is to have a full thyroid panel done because you cannot diagnose anyone with Hashi's without a full panel.  It is more important to see what the actual hormone levels are than the TSH. Those would be Free T3 and T4.  You can have low hormone levels and normal TSH.  Your TSH is not too bad but if it starts to climb any higher, that would be cause for concern for Hashi's.  At least your lab seems to use the newer ranges for testing.  Many labs use outdated ranges that go to 5.00 for a cutoff. When my TSH was a 7, I could barely drag myself out of bed in the morning. I have Hashi's and your symptoms are a laundry list for it and Hashi's is very common with Celiac Disease.  You can start having Hashi's symptoms long before the blood work goes off.......like Celiac.
    • With the 3 positives that you have, Jenna, you have Celiac Disease. Positive tTg and EMA is a slam dunk. At this point, if you do the biopsy, you don't need it for diagnosis.  It will be to check for extent of damage.  Considering your health issues, it's pretty apparent you have a gluten problem anyway. Congratulations on figuring out your problem.  Now you can sit back and watch how amazing it will be when many of your problems resolve or improve dramatically. I had the same positives you did and declined the biopsy. 3 years after I was diagnosed, all my symptoms were gone but I do have other AI issues which are not, but they are much, much better just from going gluten free.  Be optimistic this will happen for you also!
