When my son was first diagnosed with food allergies, one of the most difficult things I found to replace was bread. It's something he REALLY enjoyed to eat and I needed to find a substitute fast! Initially we still had wheat so I needed to find a safe bread that was free of egg, soy and dairy which proved to be so difficult at the time I borrowed my mother in law's bread maker and got to work.
I got really good at making this bread and he loved it..... Then we lost gluten and rice as well with his diagnosis of eosinophilic oesophagitis and that made it even harder!
That was quite a few years ago now and I'm happy report that there are heaps of easy options now if you want to make some bread at home. As you get more experienced you might even like to create your own recipe with a blend of flours but mixes are a great place to start and handy on busy days too!
This is guide of the bread mixes we have at Happy tummies to make it easy for you to select something for your family.
Orgran bread mixes are fantastic for families dealing with multiple food allergies because they're gluten free, wheat free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, soy free and even yeast free.
All you need to make these up is a little oil and water. There are three to choose from as well: Premium, Wholemeal and Multigrain.
Another really popular brand at Happy Tummies is Well & Good. Their gluten free bread comes in three unique varieties - Crusty Bread Mix, Cafe Style Bread Mix and Rye-Less Rye Bread Mix. I particularly like the Cafe Style - it's absolutely delicious straight from the oven!
Well & Good mixes are also great for families with multiple food allergies because they're free from gluten, wheat , egg, dairy, nuts and soy. The Rye-Less Rye Bread Mix and Cafe Style Bread Mix also don't require yeast to rise, with only the addition of water and oil required. The Crusty Bread Mix comes with a yeast sachet included.
The low carb and gluten free bread mix by The Protein Bread Co has become very popular at Happy Tummies, along with their other products.
These products aren't for everyone because they do contain dairy, tree nuts and lupin (and sesame in the new 6 Australian Seeds). They also requite lots of eggs to make them up however they do not require yeast.
These gluten free bread mixes are perfect for families wanting low carb and high protein bread that's also gluten free.
Monica's Mixes not only have a delicious Gluten Free Organic Bread Mix, but they also have a really yummy Gluten Free Organic Wrap Mix as well. These mixes are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free and soy free and do not require yeast or egg to make them up either.
Both mixes are gluten and wheat free, and free from dairy, soy and nuts in the ingredients (traces of tree nuts and soy in both). They both require yeast and eggs to make, altough the plain bread does suggest that an egg replacer may be used.
We haven't yet been able to get the White Bread version of this bread mix but as soon as we do I'll update this. The Multigrain Bread Mix is gluten free and soy free. It contains milk and requires the addition of eggs to make it, and optional yeast. This is great for families that want a grainy bread that's gluten free.
Simply Wize Crusty Bread Mix is a lovely fluffy white bread mix, perfect for entertaining. It is gluten free but does contain soy, egg and yeast.
The F.G. Roberts Cottage Bread Mix is gluten free, wheat free, dairy free, egg free, sesame free and nut free. It does contain soy and requires the addition of yeast. This bread mix is quite an economical option with each bag making several loaves of bread.
