  • Breads?

    Hi,

    I went to the food store yesterday to try and get some bread, but everything seems to have vinegar or soy flour or something in it. Also I think I heard that thiamine mononitrate can be bad and that's in every bread item basically. (Does anyone know if it's true that thiamine mononitrate can be bad?)

    It was very frustrating yesterday because I'd really like to still eat bread. I got some a while ago that I thought would be ok, but now I'm not so sure, because it looks like it could have some hidden ingredients and i've been in a lot of pain recently. Though I suppose that could be from the myriad of other triggers that happen to us. I am about to get my period and it's always gotten really bad before that.

    Does anyone know of good bread that we can use? My mom is going to give me her bread machine, whenever I can pick it up, because I would use it more than her with IC, but can I never buy bread in the store anymore?

    Thanks!
    Emily Anne

    Ohh, a breadmaker! That really opens up your choices. Truthfully, a lot of specialty breads you get at the health food stores are expensive and taste like cardboard. Seek out blogs for recipes to make your own.

    Elana's Pantry is a good start...

      How about just buying fresh bread at your local bakery? It will spoil faster but you could keep it refrigerated and I'm sure can tell you exactly whats in it.

        Yeah my boyfriend mentioned that to me, and I got a loaf yesterday, but I'm not so sure it's ok. I had a lot of pain today. One of the ingredients in the bread was levain and I'm not sure if that's ok or not. Maybe I just need to find the right bakery.

          Many of the bakery breads are actually frozen loafs that are baked at the store. These contain many additives and preservatives that can cause a flair. So I say go for the bread machine. It takes five minutes to put the mix together and tastes so wonderful.

            Ah, the beloved bread machine. Zillions of recipes online. Try getting organic flour at a health food store, there is absolutely no junk in it. Enriched flour is what you want to avoid if you are that sensistive, they throw all kinds of #@!% in there. If you do not have access to a health food store you can order it online. You will have fun with that machine! And don't forget you can divvy up that bread dough and shape it into rolls for the second rise and voila! Good luck, hope you post after a few experiments and let us know if you find a super secret recipe! Jill, wife of Bob

              I buy locally baked bread at a bakery. It hasn't been a problem for me. I purchase flour at our local grocery store --- just read the label --- if there are additives, they must be listed.
