Going gluten free can be daunting, but don't let that stop you. If you can do this, you will be amazed at how much better you will feel.
You can purchase ready made gluten-free products, some taste good and some do not. A lot of this depends on the choices of flours that a baker uses. When I bake in my dedicated bakery, I use flour blends that I make myself. My main flour blend is a brown and white rice flour blend with potato and tapioca starch blended in to lighten the flour. I use sorghum and millet in a blend also. I use coconut and almond flours too.
You can purchase flour blends already made. My recommendation on this would be the blend from Authentic Foods. I don't have any experience with any of the others. You do want one that uses the finest grind of rice, otherwise you will have a gritty product.
Baking bread is one of the hardest products to duplicate. It will not be the type of bread you are used to, but it does have delicious taste. You can purchase premade bread, but please choose wisely. If you try a bread, if it wasn't made by me, and you don't like it, you might want to consider driving up to our bakery and purchasing ours. -Call me first at 727-534-1977 to make sure we have the bread you want.
If you choose to make your own bread, make sure your mixer or bread machine is powerful enough to handle the dough. Gluten-free breads need to have air incorporated into the mixture.
If you are concerned about the carbohydrate count in the rice flour blends, use coconut and/or almond flour. Just remember that your breads will be heavier.
If you find that you can't do without the breads, come on up to the bakery. I try to have a good selection of breads, rice blend, rice/millet/sorghum bread, "rye" flavored bread, cinnamon raisin bread. These are all made with yeast. I also offer yeast free breads. This is a smaller loaf, but it does allow you to have a sandwich.
I make dairy free, egg free also.
I offer bagels such as sun dried tomato, onion, plain, sesame seed, poppy seed, everything, cinn/raisin, and blueberry
I have pizza crusts, both in 12 inch size and personal
I make sandwich rolls, hot dog buns, French or Italian breead. I make foccacia too.
You can order quiche, pot pies, cookies, cakes, donuts, bread crumbs, croutons, or any thing that you can think of.
