Do You Make Your Own Gluten-free Bread?

Homemade Gluten Free BreadI have often wondered what percentage of people following the gluten-free diet actually make their own bread.  I tend to use mixes to make sweet breads, but I usually buy my gluten-free bread off the shelf, or from my favorite local gluten-free bakery Pure Knead.

Most of us know that gluten-free bread has come a long way in the last five years, so there are a number of great options to be purchased at local health foods stores that don’t contain artificial ingredients and have the taste and texture of wheat-based bread.

Still, there seems to be a rising percentage of people who prefer to make their own gluten-free bread. Some of my favorite gluten-free bread mixes to use are: (more…)

OAKLAND, Calif., April 18, 2012 – Add Hidden Valley Salad Dressings to the growing list of foods to clearly call out that they are gluten free.

The makers of Hidden Valley Salad Dressings have added a “Gluten Free” logo to bottles and dry packets of its signature Original Ranch® dressing as well as much of its Farmhouse Originals product line. Packages with the new logo should appear on store shelves this summer.

The packaging change is designed to help (more…)

Recently I made a loaf of bread using a bag of Namaste Foods Gluten Free Bread Mix. I bought this on sale at some point, and it subsequently sat in the pantry for a while. I’m not sure how long, but there’s another 8 months to go until the use-by date, so I’m not worried. I like to have stuff like this on hand because sometimes I get in the mood to eat bread, and that usually means I have to make it myself. This time, I was also in desperate need of clearing out some pantry space, so making this mix was the easy answer.

This is the third loaf of gluten free bread I’ve made from a mix (Pamela’s and Bob’s Red Mill were the other ones I tried), and it did fairly well. It rose way more than I thought it would, but it was still heavy and moist the first day, only to very quickly dry out by the third day after baking.

The bread mix consists of a flour blend made from brown rice flour, (more…)

 

For over 200 years, King Arthur Flour has built an impressive reputation for its consistent, high-quality, all natural baking flours.

Now the company has entered the gluten-free market with eight new gluten-free mixes: Pizza Crust Mix, Cookies Mix, Bread Mix, Brownie Mix, Multi-Purpose Flour Mix, Pancake Mix, Muffin Mix and Chocolate Cake Mix.

King Arthur Flour boldly states the following message on their website, “Our award-winning gluten-free mixes are the best you’ll ever taste.”  Their tagline is “King Arthur Flour gluten-free mixes – a taste the whole family will enjoy!”

We tested them.  The verdict?

These gluten-free mixes are as good as advertised. Both children and adult tasters agreed they are spectacular.

The Mixes

Gluten Free King ArthurWe received two boxes each of the eight different varieties. (Hint to all you gluten-free bloggers and support group leaders out there – request yours now!)

The mixes are packaged in attractively designed boxes, incorporating blue, tan and pumpkin colors in an appealing design supported by scrumptious-looking pictures.  The boxes are clearly labeled gluten-free in multiple locations and (more…)

A wonderful new gluten-free product just hit the market in the United States – fresh from the Liguria region of Italy.  

Lucini Italia Company recently introduced Cinque e’ Cinque, a custom blend chickpea baking mix for Gluten-free Italian frittatas. This beloved Italian street food, also known as Farinata, has been a tradition in Northwest Italian pizzerias and bake shops for hundreds of years, where customers are known to stand in line for the first bites right out of the oven. Given its taste, nutritional benefits, variety of use and surprisingly easy preparation, it could soon become a staple for American gluten-free families as well.  

Cinque e’ Cinque (pronounced “Chin-quay e Chin-quay”) comes in three flavors: Traditional, Savory Rosemary and Tuscan Fiery Chili. (more…)
