    Re: Soy Flour

    You may have better luck if you just look at breads that are baked on site. Soy flour is an irritant for many of us.

    I recently started baking bread for my family. I usually bake it one loaf at a time to avoid having it get moldy. Home made bread does grow mold within a very few days.

    Stay safe

        I would avoid it. You can find other breads that don't have soy flour in them. :-)

          bread is something I have had a difficult time with. Basic white bread is the only bread I have been able to tolerate. I can't tolerate any of the other IC friendly flours especially whole wheat flour it just sets my bladder on fire.
