Hi Folks! Is anyone trying to follow a gluten free diet for Hashi's and struggling with the taste of a lot of GF food on the market, especially breads and baked goods? I certainly do, Boy! Do I miss my artisan breads, croissants etc. Well, I have just bought some part baked crusty bread rolls which contains Gluten Free WHEAT starch ( of course this isn't suitable for wheat allergy sufferers). I was sceptical when it stated wheat so I did some research and yes, you can get gluten free wheat starch and flour. Apparently, it is washed until it only contains 20ppm or less of gluten which is suitable for Coeliacs according to the Coeliac Society. These bread rolls actually tasted like proper bread, unlike other GF breads which are a very poor substitute. They are lovely warm with butter and they make nice garlic bread and hot dog puppy rolls too. I even found some waffles which contained the GF wheat starch, and wow, they tasted pretty good for store bought. There might be light at the end of the tunnel for GF baked goods.
I may have stumbled over something which everyone already knows about, but if folk haven't and struggling with the GF limited diet like me, it's worth trying 😊. If anyone wants to know the products I bought, I will pass on the details. I bought them from Morrisons.
In my enthusiasm, I thought I could buy the GF wheat starch and flour to bake my own, but yet to find it for sale. If anyone knows if you can purchase it, I'd be grateful.
