gluten-free But Tapioca Intolerant

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have ulcerative colitis and am also gluten intolerant. In my experiments with gluten free products I have discovered that I am apparently sensitive to tapioca (it aggravates my UC symptoms).

I love to cook and bake so I am disappointed that I will be unable to use the gluten-free baking mixes that are readily available on the market. They make life so simple!

Do you have a gluten-free/tapioca free baking mix recipe that you could share that is pretty all-purpose and doesn't change texture/taste too much and that is also simple to make? Thanks!

I haven't tried tapioca flour yet, but have it in my cupboard. Last weekend something smacked me, it was either dairy or chickpea flour. Just in case you don't already know, Elana Amsterdam has a nice cookbook that is pretty simple, but uses almond flour exclusively. The upside is that you don't gave to add xanthum or guar gum, and that almond flour is pretty healthy. The recipes are pretty simple, with short ingredient lists.

The downside is that you have to purchase the flour online, keep it in the freezer, and bring it to room temperature before proceeding with most recipes.

I've found I can't tolerate quinoa. It's funny how the different "safe" grains affect us differently.

I get the almond flour at nutsonline.com. You can see some of her recipes and blog at glutenfreegoddess.com. I hope that helps.

I've seen recipes that use oat flour vs. tapioca, but I've had issues with gluten-free oats, and haven't pursued tried any of those. Good luck to you!

Thanks for the website recommendation. I will check it out. I haven't had any issues with gluten free oats so that might be a good place to start. I use those (ground in the food processor) in my meatloaf and meatballs already.

You could do what I do for my corn allergic son. Follow any one of the recipes for a flour blend but use only the starches that you can have. We sub tapioca for corn but you could so the opposite and use corn or potato for tapioca so that you are using a combo of corn and potato for your starches.

I would also suggest subbing for another starch. I've subbed arrowroot pretty successfully... on the down side it is much more expensive.

Try:

3 cups brown rice flour

3 cups cornstarch

2 cups sorghum flour

1 cup corn flour

Add 1/2 ts xanthan gum per cup flour blend for general baking ..

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
