Bread Makers - Coupla' Questions
0

7 posts in this topic

Hello people, rookie Celiac here with two questions:

1. Having bought a brand new toaster (as per recommendation), do I need to buy a new bread maker? We have an old break maker that was used pre diagnosis (i.e. to make bread WITH gluten) a few times....can I use that one?

2. Do I need a break maker with a "gluten-free" setting on it?

Many thanks,

Paul.

Hi, Paul!

Great that you bought a new toaster. Impossible to get those things free of gluten after years of use, I think. My personal opinion is that you should also buy a new bread machine. Even though I wash everything carefully by hand, I still notice that I sometimes miss a speck here and there. I never really scratched mine or anything, so I don't think gluten could get stuck that way, but I don't know what you do with your bread machine. :P

I don't think there is a gluten free setting on bread machines and if there is, I've yet to see one. That said, there are bread machine mixes you can buy, and there are gluten-free bread machine bread recipes online that can guide you in the beginning.

Personally, I hate gums (no glue in my food, please. lol). I suggest experimenting with ground chia seeds soaked in boiling water (equal to measurement of gum). It gives you a gooey, almost egg-like consistency.

Hope that helps!

Eh, can you get a new canaster for it? If not, yes you should, especially if it has scratches.

Welcome Paul!

I had a bread maker that made one or two loaves of glutenous bread and was then relegated to a very dark corner of our storage room for years. I cleaned it and washed the bread pan - both by hand and ran through dishwasher. We never had a problem with it and have made many loaves of gluten-free bread. If you do clean it - pay careful attention to the swirly mechanism at the bottom of the pan - mine had a few crumbs trapped there.

If you decide on a new maker - a gluten-free setting sounds like a great idea - not sure what it does for you, but gluten-free flours do behave a bit differently so I'd opt for that setting if choosing between models with or w/out the gluten-free setting.

OK thanks for the replies I'm going to try my luck with the existing one following a thorough, thorough clean. I'll update the thread as to my findings in due course....

there are several bread makers with gluten-free settings now on the market.....Plus Bready makes one for their specific mixes....I found where the little mixers insert is it is impossible to get all the debrie out of...but if your not a extremely sensitive celiac it may be okay for you to use the one you have....For sensitive people I don't think it is worth the risk of getting sick over...

Kinda like playing Russian Roulette !

A glutenfree setting is preferrable because glutenfree bread needs only one knead and one rise cycle. I continued to use my previous breadmaker (a Zojirushi which is expensive) and cleaned it thoroughly using a brush to clean the posts and paddles of the pan.

Initially I used the regular bread cycle to make glutenfree bread until I became more experienced and familiar with glutenfree baking. My machine doesn't have a glutenfree setting but it is programmable so I now program in the knead, rise and bake cycles myself and it has made the bread so much better. The regular setting has too many knead and rise cycles and so the bread will end up collapsing a bit and will be tougher and more crumbly.

Bread machines are not very forgiving and if you are making a yeast glutenfree bread I do not suggest you experiment without using gums. Gums are needed for structure. I once attempted using chia seeds instead and spent the rest of the evening cleaning out the absolute mess it made in my machine. And the bread had to be thrown away...it had risen up so high there was dough all over the top and sides of the machine, then when it baked it collapsed and the middle was as flat as a pancake.

It helps if you can keep an eye on the bread machine and stir down the dry ingredients on the sides with a spatula when it goes into knead cycle. Glutenfree flour mixes are harder to stir in and some machines need a little help. It is best to have a machine with 2 paddles in the pan. And try to take the bread out right away after it is done...remove it from the pan onto a wire rack for cooling so it won't get gummy.

Good luck and hope you will be back to let us know how the bread turned out.

    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.  
    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis? 
    • That's interesting, thanks.  I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too.  I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like losing weight when I'm not trying to. Mind you - some days I just can't eat, after lunch yesterday I couldn't face anything much at all.
