Cream Of Wheat Replacement

13 posts in this topic

I really want a to have a hot breakfast cereal but since I can't have cream of wheat any more I need to find a replacement. Has any one used cream of rice to replace cream of wheat? I'm looking for something that has a similar texture as cream of wheat. I never liked oatmeal because of the texture.

I was never fond of Cream of Wheat but do like Cream of Rice and think the texture is probably similar. Some people also eat Pocono Cream of Buckwheat but I haven't seen it around here.

I get the Pocono Cream of Buckwheat. I really like it when I want something warm and soothing, especially if I have been glutened.

I eat the cream of rice. It cooks up pretty quickly, and I like the texture. The one I have is cream of brown rice.

I haven't tried the cream of rice but have tried the Pocono cream of buckwheat & find it to be very similar to cream of wheat. If you use sweetener & milk it's like cream of wheat but if you use salt & butter it's like grits.

I eat the Bob's Redmill Mighty Tasty gluten-free Hot Cereal (I buy it at Whole Foods or Kroger) - I add some vanilla almond milk and a touch of sugar to it, and it's a VERY good replacement for Cream of Wheat. I actually think I like it better than cream of wheat. You can add all kinds of stuff to it...maple syrup, cinnamon, fruit, etc. Directions on the package makes a large batch - I normally either make the large batch and reheat over the next few days for breakfast, or just cut the recipe down to make just enough for one day.

I eat this too. I have also tried out the savory recipes on the box and they were good also.

By the way, the Bob's Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal can also be substituted for cornmeal when making corn muffins, if you like a sandier texture (which I do). And it is mighty tasty as a hot cereal, especially with butter and brown sugar. But for texture, Cream of Rice is closest to Cream of Wheat, but I'm not sure I'd trust Nabisco's Cream of Rice not to be cross-contaminated with other things they make.

Try cream of buckwheat. It tastes kinda funky to me, but my son (Gluten-free Casein-free diet) loves it.

You could try polenta. The texture is a little softer that grits. I live it with a little pure maple.

cream of rice, millet grits (bob's red mill).

oatmeal can be made in many, many different textures. steel cut oats are a more similar texture to cream of wheat (I'd think?), and quick cook oats are the ... softest? least textured? something like that. rolled oats are in between.

There are some threads about grit recipes on the forum somewhere. Grits with olive oil, salt and pepper or oats with the same, vs. sugary stuff.

    • Hi again, I was also wondering whether having the bowel preparation will have lowered the TTG level at all? Thank you for everything.  
    • Welcome to the forum Lakme! You can find a lot of good info on celiac testing at this link. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faqs/ You do need to eat gluten for 12 weeks before the blood antibodies test.  A single slice of bread is enough gluten.  Since you have been avoiding gluten the antibodies in your bloodstream may have dropped to a point they can't be measures now.  But it's impossible to know for sure.  The celiac testing process is a celiac disease antibodies panel followed by an endoscopy to check for damage to the gut lining.  I suggest you at least get the blood antibodies tested.  If you can afford the endoscopy that is good to do also. Another important test is for vitamin and mineral levels.  Celiac disease can cause malabsorption and deficiencies in various vitamins etc. I am not clear on your skin issues?  There is a skin rash associated with celiac disease that can also be tested.  It is called dermatitis herpetiformmis or DH.  A diagnosis of DH is a diagnosis of celiac disease.  DH can be very itchy. There is also a celiac condition called gluten ataxia where eating gluten causes affects on the brain or nerves.  People with gluten ataxia may have trouble walking and coordinating muscles.  Since it affects the brain that can cause various symptoms.  I'd be guessing if I tried to describe all the possibilities there. It can be much harder/more unpleasant to get tested for celiac disease after being off gluten for a few months.  once you start feeling better and your body starts healing, the switch back to eating gluten can really knock a person down.  So it's better to be tested before stopping eating gluten.
    • Been wondering about these also, I been personally just using frozen ones from Trader Joe's. But I also have a thing with the salt, thinking a good rinse and soak in some water for 15mins should help pull it out. Would be great in omlettes, sautes, and in my pasta dishes.
    • That is the brand I use, screw all the other stuff he says. The fact is the pure pumpkin powder protein is really high in zinc, magnesium, and several key amino acids, fats, and various other nutrients. But it on amazon btw. the double or the 5lb are the best deals. It is one of the few proteins that help me to put on weight. Also a few tsp before bed makes you sleep quite deep when taken with a bit of almond milk.      You might also look into Hemp Protein, NOTE Jarrow is the only one that still makes gluten-free hemp protein. Everyone else says they might have blow over contamination from wheat. Oh if you need bars and also have issues with whey like I do Julian Makes some paleo bars. Flavor/texture can take some getting used to. Oh and if your alright with rice protein Nutrabiotic makes a full spectrum version enhanced with sprulina. If you need links to places on where to find these at the best price message me I will see if I can track down some deals.
    • Thanks Kenlove. I know you have been in Japan so you'll understand when I say the artichoke hearts were on sale for 377 yen for the two jar set. Too good to pass up! As long as I can eat them!
