Cruising and Gluten Free

Will be cruising the South Pacific (Tahiti westwards), and was hoping somebody had a good gluten free bread recipe they wish to share. I am assuming that anything GF will be just as expensive if not more so (or even available in some locations) then home.

Cheers

Re: Cruising and Gluten Free

"Good" and "gluten free" don't go together.😆

I have tried all and given up.

True True...... So if you have "Given up" I will take that as you haven't succeeded in finding anything remotely reasonable then too..

Re: Cruising and Gluten Free

In the South Pacific - you will not be seeing any wheat fields. I vote ditching the European diet of wheat altogether and go with the tubers or rice. Good luck with managing your celiacs.

Re: Cruising and Gluten Free

My experience in the Caribbean but from reading and chats with Pacific cruisers I think the situation will be quite similar there. Once you get away from the larger towns you will not find support for any specialized diets like gluten free bread. Small towns and island stores may have wheat flour but no way you will find gluten free or even whole wheat or anything more than plain white flour.

I agree that the best advise is to eat local foods and go for rice or other grains that you can bring and store on the boat.

Taro flour is.. like Cassava flour gluten free.. the Polynesians have been making it for centuries and it should be readily available in the stores out there.. food colouring optional..

Check out America's Test Kitchen web site https://www.americastestkitchen.com/...ee-flour-blend... they published a gluten free cookbook last year.

Re: Cruising and Gluten Free

The gluten free recipes I have tried are all too complicated and don't turn out that well. I use the Glutino mix "Favorite Sandwich Bread." It always turns out perfect.

Re: Cruising and Gluten Free

Packets of rice cakes make a viable alternative. Also try the various packet bread mixes until you find one that is acceptable. I have been GF for 30 years or so. It is necessary to accept that you will not duplicate wheat products with GF alternatives. Regards, Richard

Re: Cruising and Gluten Free

SV Convivia did that run a few years ago. They are sailing in a different neck of the woods now but they were GF then as well I believe. You might contact them via their website:

Re: Cruising and Gluten Free

I've done a lot of cooking & baking with brown rice flour. Never bread though. Corn is pretty versatile as well, as are the myriad of other grains out there. Even oat flour, & sprouted breads (made from sprouted grains).

Try sourcing information from Whole Foods typs stores, as they cater to exactly what you're asking about. And my other half found all kinds of the above when I gave up wheat for a while.

Wish I had a recipe or 3 for you, but cooking by eye is an old family tradition.

BTW, other than for sandwiches, you really don't need traditional "bread", so a lot of alternative items can be added to one's diet. Not that sandwiches on sprouted breat, or any other type of bread are bad. Just different. And are usually a lot more tasty & healthy to boot.

PS: Have you played around with grinding your own grains yet?

Re: Cruising and Gluten Free

We aren't gluten free but we are low carb. No rice flour for us! I have found that coconut flour with psyllium husk makes a decent bread with a texture similar to pumpkin bread. I suggest it because you use so very little coconut flour when making breads that a 5lb bag is more like a 50 lb bag in use. That means you can store quite a bit!
Almond four is also a good alternative to wheat and rice but not as dense as the coconut flour.

Ultimately we gave up chasing bread after our first year low carb. Funny enough, I don't miss bread over much. I miss the thought of bread and pasta but, in reality, when I have tred breads and pastas since we gave it up, I don't like it! I think it's a bit like eating cooked paste. Yes even the good stuff.

Life without bread is really ok! I just say that to reassure you that you won't starve. Not to suggest that you should give up bread, but life is just fine without it.

Re: Cruising and Gluten Free

You might want to look into the company called Shar. They are from Italy and they have shelf stable breads that are shelf stable. The company also makes hundreds if other GF products. I sell them in my store in Montreal but you should be able to find them online in many countries.
