Is organic whole wheat bread safe?
Do you mean as far as the Maker's Diet goes? The answer according to the MD would be no. Only sprouted bread is allowed.
Another thing to consider. Many folks w/CD *seem* to have some level of gluten sensitivity. For those folks, whole wheat bread--whether organic or not--would not be good for them. I think my son may be one of those folks. On the occasion that he eats bread, since he doesn't like sprouted bread he eats organic spelt bread. Spelt is an ancient grain which *supposedly* is low in gluten. He seems to tolerate it well, so right now we'll stick with it. My thanks to Rudi's Organic Bakery....Ugh...it's expensive...
CrazyHarry, you're right though. If he toasted the sprouted bread he'd probably like it better. We'll try that. But here's what I've been wondering. Does the actual sprouting of the grain decrease the gluten content?
Roni, I wish I knew how to make bread. We do like sourdough...well, everyone except my son. If you figure out how to make it from spelt flour let me know! I'll add that to my list of things to do along with learning to make yogurt. That one is a must!
