    Primallady, I had someone try to tell me the same about spelt, that it was gluten free. They kept insisting that I eat it. I kept telling them, "I have celiac, I know what I can and can't eat." I hate it when people who don't get horribly ill from a food try to insist that you should just try it or that their version is somehow magically safe.

    i took a look at the site, & it definitely doesn't say their sprouted bread is gluten free, simply that those with mild intolerance can often tolerate sprouted bread:

    Any product that contains wheat (including semolina, durum, spelt, triticale, and kamut) rye, barley, or oats cannot be considered Gluten-Free. What is important is the sprouting process, through enzymatic activity, changes gluten to a more digestible or tolerable state. Many individuals with mild gluten sensitivities use sprouted products with no adverse side affects or allergic reactions. However each person’s individual constitution is different. We advise any person with gluten sensitivities including and in particular individuals with serious health conditions such as Celiac Disease to consult their physician before consuming any product that may contain gluten.
    there's no way i could eat it, but maybe you can. frankly, if you insist on having bread, i'd stick with the almond bread, flax bread, or coconut bread that's out there:

    coconut bread: http://nourishedkitchen.com/coconut-flour-bread/

    almond bread: http://www.elanaspantry.com/gluten-free-bread-20/

    flax bread: http://primal.simplysunshine.net/?p=230

    the coconut bread is definitely more of a breakfast type, while the other two work for sandwiches. making it yourself is the only way to ensure a lack of frankenfoods.

    You took a look at "the" site? How do you know what site I meant? I was talking about a Dutch website. And they say if the grains are fully sprouted they are gluten free. Not that I really care about a little gluten since I have no intolerance. The reason I want bread is because it is much quicker to make and doesn't create much dishes and because I don't do well on high fat (tried it for a long period). The bread alternatives you mentioned I can't get anywhere and making my own bread is WAY to much effort. Besides, flax and almond are a nono anyway in those proportions.
    But it's good to know it still contains some anti-nutrients so for now only a few slices for lunch.

    sorry, i assumed you meant the ezekiel bread company. i had no idea anyone else manufactured it.

    but i definitely disagree - the biggest piece of the pb diet is to avoid grains. sprouted or no, those are still grains. almonds & flax are not. some people use lettuce or nori to wrap up for sandwiches - perhaps that a route you could try?
