BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Help... Newbie... B type & breads
Posted by: 34103 (Guest), Saturday, March 23, 2013, 10:03pm
I'm completely confused when it comes to choosing breads and noodles.... Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

The app list these as neutral:
Wheat/refined/unbleached
Wheat/white flour
Wheat bread/sprouted

But then these as avoid:
Wheat/gluten flour
What/whole grain
Wheat/whole wheat
Wheat bran
Wheat germ

Are they not all the same or very close to being so? What would make one neutral over the other??

I don't have a whole foods local, is there anything that I can purchase off the shelf for a occasional sandwich or wrap? I don't eat them often but it would be nice to enjoy a BLT ( minus tomato ) or taco with my family when they are eating them :D

Keep it simple!
avoid all whole grain / brown wheat bread.
Use white as a special treat lts of Bs dont do that well on that either.
Look into spelt bread much better for you.

I am personally 95 % bread and flour free but uses spelt flour in the weekend and mght eat a small serving of wheat at friends places.

For tacos I occasionally use either  rice or sprouted grain tortilla that are premade and available in large groceries.

Millet makes good tortillas, but you have to make them yourself.

The easy way to make sandwiches is rice cakes.

You may be able to find bread made out of oat flour or other compliant grains.

Spelt rates okay for you so you may want to try it and see how you do with spelt breads.

I make breads using flax that require no yeast.

If a type B is going to eat wheat, 100% sprouted is the best choice.  Second best choice is white, unbleached, without all the chemicals (read the ingredients).  For a non-secretor, any wheat that is not sprouted can be problematic.

Whole wheat is not good for type B's.

B's can not digest the skin on wheat, they might get colon cancer from it.

White wonder bread is Ok.

I’ll eat white bread and spelt.  I stay away from whole wheat.   I eat more rice products than wheat.

Quoted from Goldie

White wonder bread is Ok.    

There are white breads available that are closer to real food than Wonder Bread.  If a person is going to eat a white flour product, look for a simple ingredient list containing unbleached flour, an acceptable oil, such as extra virgin olive oil- or no oil at all, and salt (ideally seasalt).  Maybe yeast or sourdough starter.  And support the bakeries that make an effort to create real food.  Fresh artisan breads, sourdough breads, Italian or French loaves.

Thanks for all the replies! By suprise I found a loaf of organic Spelt bread made by Meijer ;) It's pretty much like saw dust but I'm not that picky. It'll be fine for an occasional toast or sandwich.

I also found some gluten free wraps that have nothing matching the avoid lists... Is it okay to freeze the wraps and bread and pull out a couple peices when needed?

Any suggestions on better than Wonder bread brands readily available?

Thanks again guys!

Meijer split top white is 99 cents this week.

Barowsky’s Organic White

Vermont Bread Company Organic Soft White Bread

Cottage Grove Farmhouse Organic White Bread

Although personally I would go for something other than white bread.

Meijer's often have rice bread in the freezer section.

I am finally at a point where I could have a sandwich without getting sick. It took me almost 1-1.25 years on the diet to not react to flour. Prior to the diet, I would get asthma attacks and serious sinus infections from eating wheat. After a while, it turned into hives.

Even if I know I can handle more wheat since my gut became stronger, I do not chance it. I would have at most 2 pieces of bread in my sandwich and don't go beyond that. I noticed that I do better with certain noodles while I get a mild runny nose with others.

When I choose to have bread, which is almost daily, I make sure that my other meals are 100% diamonds to compensate for the avoid I am putting into my body.

Prior to my 1.25 year wheat fast, I had to be completely wheat and gluten free or I would be sick as a dog for weeks. Coffee, which has gluten type receptors, would cause my body to react as if I ate a serving of wheat. So, anything that had to do with gluten was completely avoided until recently.

Good luck!

I wouldn't be so sure that white wonder bread is OK. The white flour part is OK, but it likely contains other avoids such as corn syrup and soybean oil, plus nasty chemicals.

I'm not familiar with local brands of much- I buy spelt bread in Trader Joe's and I do a lot of baking; I don't purchase any other breads or wraps. I'd suggest simply going to the stores near you and read labels carefully to see what's available.

It's definitely fine to freeze bread and take out 1 serving at a time as needed. I routinely keep spelt bread in the freezer- I make my kids sandwiches with frozen bread before school and they're thawed by lunchtime. If you're taking out wraps to eat immediately for "taco night" then you may need to warm them up a bit before serving, or allow half an hour or so for it to thaw before eating.
