I guess I'm not like a lot of people. I never liked the "Wonderbread" types of bread. I used to buy French bread or Italian bread because I like a crusty bread with texture. That's why I love Udi's multi-grain bread.

But if you like that soft stuff, try Kinikinik (sp). Everyone says that is more like traditional store-bought bread. I have had their hamburger buns and they are soft and white as Wonderbread. Although they are too thick, you could always take a slice out of the middle to save for toasting later.

Have you tried Udi's or Canyon Bakehouse?

If you have and didn't like them, wait some time and try again. When I first went gluten-free I wasn't that impressed with Udi's considering the price, so we made bread for a few months. I tried Udi's again at closer to a year and I loved it - guess my taste/perspective on the cost changed a bit during that time. We love Canyon Bakehouse, but didn't have access to it until more recently. Udi's remains a staple because it is less expensive and easier to find.

Do you like baking? Some of us make our own bread. If you don't, try Kinnickinnik if you can find it. Their new soft bread is as large as regular bread (not Barbie sized) and it seriously does stay soft and does not need to be toasted. Before that my favourite commercial brand was Glutino Genius. And before that it was Udi's. :)

I like Rudi's cinnamon raisin in the frozen section of your health food store. I even use the cinnamon raisin to make regular sandwiches on, toasted.

I think they have some online coupons out now. You can print off 2 for $1.00 off.

I really love the Schar baguettes. You crisp them up in the oven before eating, and they taste JUST like regular French baguettes. The problem is they're hard to find and expensive (about $7 for two small baguettes). WalMart often carries their regular soft rolls, but I don't like those nearly as much.

The baguettes ARE good. I can even get them at the DM in Croatia! We don't have any Schar products whatsoever where I live in Canada so when we go to Europe I try out as many as I can. :) Just another six itty bitty weeks! :D

Another vote for Udi's multigrain. I take 2 slices out in the a.m. and by lunchtime at work it is thawed. No toasting needed.

I second (third? Fourth?) the vote for Udi's bread. It's the closest to "regular" bread we've found. Also really love the Bella baking mixes - we do the multi-grain. I know it isn't white, but I'm not gluten free (my son is) and I still love this bread. There's a roll recipe included in the recipe, and even though there are a few steps to it it isn't at all difficult.

Does anyone have a good bread recipe ? I used to get the Kinnikinnick sunflower & flaxseed mix & make it - it was nice & fluffy ! They discontinued it.

I have bought Glutino's french breadmix and it's pretty good but very white !

I use a mix called "Favorite Sandwich Bread". It's pretty good, I mix it in my bread machine but cook it in the oven. Sometimes I'll cook it in my Whoopie pie pan for hamburger buns!

I've been a fan of Pamela'.s gluten free bread mix. I've purchased it in individual bags, in bulk packages of about 4 lbs., and finally in their 25-pound bag thru that big river in So. America store that we may or may not be allowed to mention. It's a good bread mix... only requiring a little oil, eggs, water, and yeast. I make a loaf a week... mostly in a bread loaf but sometimes in roll shapes.

A new company named Goodbye Gluten just sent our support group some samples. They are going to give Udi's and Rudi's a run for their money in my opinion. It is the closest thing to gluten bread I've found. Very soft and great texture. Great for sandwiches straight from the bag. Can't wait till it hits our grocery shelves!

Simona's Challah bread (search for recipe here) is one of the best I've made. In fact, I plan to make it again tomorrow. It is the closest to the real thing I have come across. You actually roll it out and form it!

    • Sometimes when those chilly winds begin to blow, and the temperatures fall, the days get visibly shorter, what we need and what we want is comfort food. Well, look no further than this simple, easy twist on scalloped potatoes. A little ham and a bit of cheese work wonders to turn that old favorite into a meal all its own. View the full article
    • Good luck with the holistic doc. I saw a naturopath for months who set me on a good path until I couldn't afford all the supplements anymore. Be careful with that. I found nothing helped me more than decent whole food and good quality vitamins. And of course sleep and lots of water!
    • Kirsty, do you have copies of the blood tests & biopsy reports? If not, get them. It's always a good idea to get copies of tests so you can refer to them later. If you have them or get them, you could post them here. It makes a difference whether you were given the full celiac panel and how many biopsies were taken from what portion of the small intestine. Also, why did you have a biopsy? Did the doc suspect celiac? What was the reasoning for doing that? Honestly, a   lot of your symptoms when you stop gluten sound like gluten withdrawal. It's something most of us experienced. Use the search box here & put in gluten withdrawal. You get a ton of threads.
    • Keep eating the bread. Get your primary care doc to do a full celiac panel although I will mention that depending on your insurance, some require you to go to a GI to get the full panel. Here's the list: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA 
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
    • I often get rapid heartbeat after meals that raise the blood sugar. But especially so after eating gluten, which is only once a day now. Sometimes I have days where it won’t get up or falls too fast, other days it gets and stays to high. In general, the more inflamed or stressed (usually from my cycle) I am, the more the blood sugar shoots up. Most important is that when I stop all gluten, it won’t get worse. I am asking a doctor for help. Endocrinologist did not take it seriously. I often have blood sugar problems without extreme values. The gastreneterologist did not think gluten was the thing to stop, but wanted me to try anti allergy medication, which made me more ill. Now I am going to see a holistic doctor, who is specialised in adrenals, female hormones and food issues. Maybe she can have a chat with my gastroenterologist. I need the backup of a doctor. Victoria, I am so glad you got over it. I don’t care if it takes a year. As long as the stomach and gut problems and itching subside.
