Mayo Clinic Research: Celiac becoming more common

I found this link to be interesting and somewhat confirmed my thoughts that genetic altering of common grains could be part of the problem for those of us with celiac. Check out this article.

    That’s a good article. I’m wondering, have you ever tried sprouted breads? This link ( speaks to why sprouting, as well as fermenting and sour leavening, are the only healthy ways to consume wheat and other seeds. I’ve heard of sprouted breads (particularly those from Alvarado St. Bakery) helping people with wheat sensitivities, but I’m not sure about those with Celiac… Any experience with these products? Thanks, my readers would appreciate the knowledge!

      While I’m sure wheat sensitive individuals may be able to eat sprouted breads (and I don’t doubt the immense health benefits) celiacs can not tolerate the protein in wheat and other grains (barley, rye, spelt-a variety of wheat) it damages the intestine and renders the “cilia” useless in digesting the food, no matter what form it is consumed in.

    Glad you shared this article, Jessie. I find it interesting that diet is mentioned at the very end. Our wheat of today is definitely not the wheat of Biblical times. I think of this increase in celiac, much like the increase in other conditions like autism, bipolar disorder, etc. Diet, environment … lots now to cause these issues.

      Shirley, you bring up a valid point I’ve often though, if I lived in Abraham’s time I would have been able to eat that bread, I’m sure of it. Sometime though, I’ll have to tell you my communion story. 🙂 Anyhow I wish we could salvage some of that wheat right off the threshing floor of the Bible and plant it on our own, un-altered and original. Someday my friend, someday! Striving toward our Heavenly homes we remember someday!

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
