I have decided to go back on the diet regardless of my test results. Last time I did it I could never really get into the bread or pasta. Any ideas as to the best bread and pasta? I don't care if I have to order it I just want a soft bread and good pasta noodles (I LOOOOVE SPAGHETTI). Anyone tried the quinoa pasta, is it good?

My family and I find the Schar to be the best brand for both. My mom found Schar white bread in one of grocery stores and even she said it felt and tasted similar to "regular" bread and the same for their pastas.

Donna......here are some links for the best bread and pasta ever. I am particularly picky about quality (or you can call me a food snob!) so these are my favorites after trying out many different kinds over the years.

http://www.canyonbakehouse.com/

The link I was going to give you for pasta will not work for you because they are all corn based and I see from your signature that you are allergic to corn. I am sorry because that makes it even harder for you. But Schar, as others have suggested, is very good pasta too. I just hope it is not corn based....I can't remember. I like many of their products and have done well with them. If things change on the corn front for you, let me know and I'll provide the link.

The bread link will work and by far, it's THE best gluten-free bread ever. I have given this to the wheat eaters without telling them it's gluten-free and they were shocked because they couldn't tell the difference. There is a store locator so I hope you can find some.

You are doing the right thing with going gluten-free. Like I said, your health history screams of Celiac so don't doubt yourself. We want to see you back to good health,like the rest of us!

The absolute best bread flour and pasta mix is maninis, which you can buy online at their website http://maninisglutenfree.wordpress.com/. They are organic, rice free, and corn free. Its super easy to make, otherwise the store bought stuff I personally think tastes like cardboard.

Basically I stopped bread because I guess I'd rather go without than settle for something I can't hardly tolerate. The gluten free breads are dry and not soft and have an odd texture.

I've really struggled because to me none of the breads are good at all but we bought the Udi's dinner rolls last week. They are VERY good compared to everything I've had. I want to try the Udi flour tortilla's if I ever see them in stores and I hope they are good. And I wish they'd come out with a really biscuit!

I have heard good things about these onion rolls http://www.gilliansfoodsglutenfree.com/products/product_info.php?products_id=31

I am waiting to see if I can find them in a store soon because shipping is SO costly.

As far as Pasta goes.....I've been buying the Ancient harvest quinoa, corn pasta and while it's not bad, it's not as good as Jovial Brown Rice Pasta. I've been told the best of the best is http://www.biaglutusa.com/order/

I ordered some and it'll be delivered Monday according to my tracking number, so we'll try that next week and I'll let everyone know.

Since my Celiac diagnosis, my mother and Memere (grandmother) are always active in searching for Gluten Free products anytime they're shopping. My Memere was very excited when she saw a box of Gluten Free Bisquick, so naturally, she bought it and gave it me the other day. I haven't tried it yet, but for the cost and the chance of finding those really good biscuits, I am hopeful. I know Bisquick is often used to make other things such as, pancakes and pie crust. If anyone has tried this Bisquick and know of some good tasty ways to use it, I would love if you could share them with me. Thank you!

Most do taste pretty bad but not the Canyon Bakehouse. I recommend it to those who have never tried it and are looking for a soft bread that you can make a sandwich with without toasting the bread. It's the only bread I can fool the gluten eaters with.

I really love Tinkyada brand pasta (brown rice). Easy for me to find, tastes great and doesn't get mushy! My favorite bread is Udi's, however I can't remember if they use corn in their bread products or not...

Gemini: Thanks for the recommendation! Going to look for it. :)

I bought a loaf of the Canyon Bakehouse and it was heavy and dry to me. Bread is the hardest for me, I think I'm a bread snob. I like it light, fluffy and soft like normal bread. We bought a bag of the Maninis

 

Miracolo Pane Classic Peasant  Bread Mix to try and it was REALLY good. You don't store it in the fridge or freezer, it has a shelf life of 5 days. IMO it's MUCH better on the 2nd day. We love thatManinis

 

is organic, rice free, and corn free.

CommonTater, which Canyon Bakehouse did you get? They make a white bread, a "rye" and SAN JUAN 7-GRAIN. The 7-Grain is not dry at all. It's got great texture and flavor. If that's the one you tried and it was dry, it must have had freezer burn or something.

For pasta, especailly when I need a spagetti type replacement I use either Mi Fun Oriental noodles or bean thread oriental noodles.  Personally in the two years I have been doing this, I found that if the recipe had to be altered to make it gluten free I don't care for it and both of the products are "original" products.  Then again I already ate these items before being gluten free whenever we ordered chinese food.   

 

For bread I like Rudi's but have yet to find Canyon Bakehouse where do you guys find that, I know I can order online, but seem out of luck in my stores and am wondering how everyone else it getting it. 

 

I do like the new Toufayan gluten free wraps much better than any of the frozen gluten free wraps I have had.   They hold up great when rolled and while eating.

My local health food store sells it. It is my absolute favorite bread, but unfortunately I can't eat it right now. Udi's has corn starch, which I could tolerate for a while there and hope to get back again, but the Canyon Bakehouse 7-Grain has corn MEAL, which I doubt I'll ever be able to tolerate again.

 

But who knows? Maybe someday...

 

The Canyon Bakehouse website is selling it for $5 a loaf, or $45 for a case of ten loaves. Believe me, if I could eat it I would buy a case and keep it in my freezer.

If you like rye bread, I find the Schar's Deli Style bread is pretty, pretty close.  A little crumbly and I wish the size were different (and the price) but not bad.

It's food crack, bartie and I hope that you will eventually be able to snarf some down again.  ;)   Every gluten eater I have given this bread to had no idea it was gluten free.

Gemini, if I ever get Canyon Bakehouse back, I guarantee I will be so fat no one will recognize me. I know we should all keep our gluten-free substitutes as OCCASIONAL treats, but this stuff is so good I know I'd eat it every day, several times a day. I like it even better than ice cream, and believe me, I am an ice cream fanatic. :D

I bought the white but tried the 7 grain and didn't like it either.  I have to tell you this new flour we are using is unbelieveable. I am SO thankful to the lady on Facebook that told me about it, I only wish I knew who she was so I could thank her. We just baked a loaf tonight and OMG the house smells so good and this bread taste EXACTLY like the real bread I remember. I am NOT kidding, I'm in heaven! I am finally eating bread again and will be a customer for LIFE!

Canyon Bakehouse bread, especially the 7 grain, is chock full of whole grain gluten-free grains so I would argue it is not one of those items that you need to limit.  I eat way more bread than I used to because when you start weight training, you lose too much weight if you don't eat carbs.  I am extremely sensitive yet eat this bread everyday, at breakfast and sometimes with lunch.  No problems but I am 8 years out and have healed well.  This isn't crap gluten-free bread.  I love this bread and so does my husband.  I agree....it's the best one out there.  Ditto for the hamburger rolls.  They look and taste like regular rolls but are much tastier than the wheat versions.  YUM!

    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
    • I was at a used book sale yesterday and happened to see an old dermatological textbook.  Of course the first thing I looked up was dh just to see what it had to say.  What I read shocked me as well as scared me half to death. The description of dh was right on, severe itching, blistering, bilateral, arms/elbows etc. but there was no mention at all of celiac, wheat, gluten or anything along that line.  The reason they gave for the cause of dh was "a manifestation of an internal cancer," and later it said it results from cancer, usually cancer of the ovaries or one other that I can't remember.  Being a hypochondriac, this was about enough to put me into cardiac arrest. I looked at the publication date and it was printed in 1963 which really isn't all that far back.  Has anyone else ever heard of this?? I thought by 1963 they were quite certain that dh was a form of celiac or did it come way after that? Sorry if I'm freaking anyone out by asking this.  That's not my intent at all, but since cancer is one of my biggest fears I found this rather unsettling.
    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the grace of God,
