Cereals Vs Flour Made Breads

Does anyone know the difference between cereals and all other forms of breads? I only know that cereals are not ground to a flour.

I'm asking this because I do NOT have a reaction to cereals yet have a reaction to almost all other forms of breads.

Your question is too vague to answer. Breads are made with various flours and cereals can be made with anything ranging from Flour to corn to oats etc.... Can't really compare the 2 without being brand specific.

Are you a newly diagnosed Celiac and do you have a question about a particular cereal ?

BTW some cereals start as ground flour and formed into flakes , rings etc..

Is it possible that you're reacting to the Xangthum gum used in making bread? Some people don't tolerate it well.

OP here, let me add some more details to clarify.

I started reacting to breads back in December 2012, and it was acute (sudden), I had eaten breads (anything made from wheat and gluten) all my life.

I tested NEGATIVE for Celiacs, NEGATIVE to all allergies and antigens to gluten and wheat.

However I am still reacting (and by reacting I mean having severe pain an hour later after eating breads and then thrashing and sometimes passing out).

I noticed that I am (currently) NOT allergic to cereals, such as Raisin Bran or Mini Wheats (anything that is NOT ground to a flour).

Wheats that are ground to a flour like pizza dough, baked breads, even semolina in pastas give me a bad reaction and we can not figure out why.

I'm trying to figure out the difference between breads made from ground wheat flour and cereals that are NOT made from flour and do NOT give me a reaction.

Ground corn flour or other NON-wheat flours do NOT give me a reaction.

I'm not sure if I'm allergic to xanthan gum but I will look into it. I have NEVER been allergic to anything before... besides bleach and I have been thinking about the bleaching agents added to "enriched" wheat flour.

Yeast? That would be in most breads but not a whole grain or cereal.

Just because you tested - on a Celiac panel doesn't mean you don't have a gluten issue: Celiac or NCGS. Ditto with allergy.

It might be the high protein (gluten) found in some wheat varieties. Sometimes wheat gluten is added to bread products and I believe semolina is a high protein wheat.

Find some organic non-bromated, unenriched wheat flour and bake some bread? Bake some yeast free bread? You can buy vital wheat gluten and try adding it to something and see if that triggers.

Does this happen with bread you bake at home, currently?

What Prickly says make good sense. It looks like you'll have to do a bit of experimenting?

When I mentioned Xangthum gum I thought you were referring to gluten-free breads and cereals. Wheat breads probably wouldn't have it. It's used for texture in gluten-free which is hard to get right without the gluten.

Thanks for the insight! :)

No, I have not baked breads at home, do you know how I would go about that to "experiment"? Is there a list of ingredients I should buy, make, and try?

Is yeast only found in wheat bread? Is there yeast in corn or rice-made breads too? I know I am NOT allergic to rice or corn-made anything.

I double checked and I have eaten foods with xangthum gum, no reaction so I don't think it's that.

You need a recipe for wheat bread, that is raised with yeast.

Most general recipes are wheat breads, raised with yeast.

Just google for a recipe called "easy homemade bread" or something like that.

The key is the flour. You need to find something that meets your elimination criteria - organic, non bromated, etc.

Here, this would be easy: http://www.simplyscratch.com/2012/05/easy-homemade-french-bread.html

Possibly barley? A lot of regular flour has barley (or barley malt?) added to it.

    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.

    • I was just diagnosed in March and I totally feel you. I'm having a hard enough time with determining which lip glosses are safe, let alone all my face products etc. I feel like this 'grey area' is the biggest annoyance with Celiac. So many foods/cosmetics I thought were safe after reading the ingredient list are actually not safe at all! One website says it's safe, one says its not. All these unfamiliar ingredients and even after googling term after term still so many grey areas!! I'm sure in time it gets easier and second nature and you learn by trial and error but holy this constant uncertainty is super annoying haha.
