I buy a baking powder made with rice flour... not about to worry about that little bit of rice in a recipe.

And as for a xanthum gum sub, I've heard Lecithin can be used instead. Not sure how, and I don't recall it being listed (which would imply neutral) however, it's usually soy derived, and it seems all things soy derived are toxic for gatherers...

I believe Dr. D has said soy lecithin is neutral for everyone, but that was back on the BTD too....

Yeah, I think I remember that too, but I bought some (like a quart of it--the HFS didn't have a smaller container), put a tsp. in a recipe, and my daughter still had her typical soy allergic reaction to it.

Melissa,

I love the flaxseed bread recipe you posted

I bake it in mini loaf pans instead of the foccocia shape and it turns out beautiful.

Also, I can slice it thin and toast the slices under a broiler to make a melba toast type substitute. comes in handy when I want a cracker or something crunchy to place slice of Farmer cheese on!

No good for Nomads--can't have arrowroot or cream of tartar.

I have reason to believe that lecithin, even from soy, should be considered neutral for all, even in GTD. Hunters avoid all things soy and I continue to use lecithin granules.

I also found Date Sugar from Bob's Red Mill, which should be a good sub for brown sugar

Is Date Sugar on any of the GenoType food lists?  Or just Dates?  I was surprised recently to read that Date Sugar is made from a different species (though same genus) of Date than the kind sold whole or chopped.  I hope it *is* OK, because I've just lost (temporarily at least) my granulated maple sugar.

Quoted from Ribbit
Has anybody tried using sweet rice flour (that really gummy stuff from asian markets) in place of xanthan gum or arrowroot?

Yes!  Specifically, I've tried the Koda Farms brand, which they call Mochiko (the Japanese word for sweet rice flour).  First, I used it in place of all the flour in a cookie recipe, as an experiment.  They were wonderfully chewy, sort of like gumdrops!  Since then, I've been using about 1 part Mochiko to 3 parts other gluten-free flour (sorghum or quinoa), to make things less crumbly -- so yes, I guess I *have* been using it in place of xanthan gum!  Unfortunately, Mochiko is presumably classified as white rice flour, so is a temporary Avoid.

You can also use 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 tsp lemon juice (or 1/4 cup buttermilk or yogurt in place of some of the liquid) for each teaspoon of baking powder.

I've tried the lemon juice and baking soda in the flaxbread recipe, and it worked great!  I haven't tried it on other recipes or known of anyone else who has tried it, so I'm not sure how it would work in other things.  

(here's that recipe so you don't have to go searching:
http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/breads/r/flaxbasicfoc.htm?p=1 or you can google "flax focaccia)

At one point, before BTD, I was baking bread with:
no gluten
no corn
no soy
no xanthan gum
no egg
no dairy
you know how it goes.  The only thing I could use to make it all come together was lemon juice and baking soda.  So yes, Melissa, I used that as my main fluffing agent before my husband could eat eggs again (my daughter still can't, and I can't because it tears up the baby's tummy).
