    Does anyone know an IC friendly bread, bagel, bun? Please let me know. Most bread has caution ingredients in it. Thanks

    I think that as long as you avoid things like chunks of sun- dried tomatoes,olives,raisins,nuts,fruits,spices and/or cheeses that you can't tolerate, you should be fine. The offending ingredients are probably in such minute quantities that they won't be a problem. As I recall,in the US, food ingredients are listed in order of the major ingredients first descending to the smallest amount of ingredients in the food last. And of course sometimes you just can't win-not that I should have been eating a Teader Joe's pumpkin pop tart thing!

    I do mostly gluten free and the rudi's brand of white bread is ok for me. I'm not exactly gluten intolerant but I just do better with a mostly gluten free diet

    I just find most breads have folic or citric or some type of acid in it that bothers me. What pumpkin pop do you like that you mentioned?

    Oh yuck-a pop tart is a manufactured pastry-like food that people toast in their toaster.I had a pumpkin flavored one from Trader Joes.It wasn't very good & it flared me.I believe many breads manufactured in the US may have added folic acid-it's a nutrient. Just checked-we are eating Trader Joes "Organic Flourless Sprouted 7 Grain Bread".No folic acid no citric acid. (Wheat,malted barley,rye,barley,oats,millet,corn,brown rice,yeast,gluten & sea salt.) We prefer the really grainy whole grain breads-hard to find them without soybean ingredients which flare me.

    A basic white Italian bread that was made in house at a grocery store is safe. I eat Ezekiel bread which is in the freezer section of the grocery store in the health food section. I have also eaten Villagio or D'Italiano white bread without a problem not the one that says it's extra soft that one bothered me. Hope that helps.

    I make nearly all of our bread; when I buy it, I get it at a store where it is actually baked. I avoid bread with preservatives --- the only problem is that it turns green so fast.

    Re: IC friendly bread?

    I have a large mixer with a dough hook so it's not a difficult process to make bread for me. Without the mixer (I used to do it that way) it takes longer with a lot of kneading.

    Here's what I usually use:

    Warm 2 cups of milk for 1 minute in the microwave (it should be warm, but if it's too hot, it will kill the yeast) and add to mixer bowl with 1/4 cup melted butter, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon salt.
    Add one slightly heaping tablespoon of yeast (or 1 package) and 1 teaspoon of sugar to 1/4 cup warm water and set aside for a few minutes to dissolve the yeast.
    I don't measure flour, but add two or three mixing spoons of flour to the mixer bowl and mix thoroughly until it's smooth, then add one egg (optional) and the dissolved yeast mixture.
    I then keep adding flour by the spoonful until the mixture forms a ball in the bowl and sort of cleans the mixture from the sides of the bowl.
    After it forms the ball, put the ball on a floured surface and knead for two or three minutes. Then place in large buttered bowl and cover.

    Let it set for 45 to 60 minutes, then put back on the floured surface, knead for a minute, then let it rest for 10 minutes.

    Form into loaves --- I use the same recipe for cinnamon loaf --- take about 1/2 of the mixture and use a rolling pin to make a long thin shape --- sprinkle with cinnamon and roll tightly to make a loaf. I use parchment paper to line the bottoms of my loaf pans with butter on the sides. Let it rise again for 45 minutes to an hour, then bake at 350 for 30 minutes (that can vary with altitude). It should be a lovely brown. I then put it on a paper towel and lightly butter the top and cover until it's totally cool before packaging. I buy plastic bags that are made for bread.

    I usually also do a loaf of regular white bread with the other 1/2. I divide it into three kind of equal parts and form each into a long round shape --- then braid just as you would your hair --- and put in the parchment lined loaf pan and let it rise along with the other loaf and bake.


    Good luck!

    P.S. You can also use this same recipe for cinnamon rolls. To make those, mix about 1/2 cup of sugar with 2 tablespoons of softened butter and however much cinnamon you prefer (I usually use about a teaspoon). Then roll out the dough to very thin and spread the mixture and roll it tightly, then cut in slices about 1/2 inch thick and put in a parchment lined baking pan, touching each other (I use a cookie sheet) and after it rises, bake about 20 to 22 minutes (just until brown).
