Gluten-Free Wheat Bread Project (Jiffy Bread)

Gluten-Free "Wheat" Bread Project!
Up and coming TASTY gluten-free bread

There is a saying, "If it looks like a fish, smells like a fish, and tastes like a fish...it's probably A FISH!"

Well, we are working on a special project in the Kitchen Cheetahs Test Kitchens. It's wheat bread...but it isn't wheat bread. But it IS "Wheat " bread.

What I mean is, It looks like wheat bread, it smells like wheat bread, it feels like wheat bread, and it tastes like wheat bread! But it's NOT wheat bread! But you will think it is wheat bread. Got it?

This is a teaser of what is to come. As I mentioned in our very first post, we are professional food formulators. we specialize in gluten-free and sugar-free formulas. Most gluten-free recipes are full of sugar and starch, so in reality, you are only exchanging one problem for another! Our goal is to create Truly healthy recipes that will fool anyone into believing that they are eating the real thing. That's a tall order. I said before, "Food should taste good." I don't want to eat healthy, only to miss even more, the old "unhealthy" foods, and I know I am not alone in this.

Gluten-free bread seems to be the carrot dangling before the horse, longed for but never achieved - successfully. True?

Well, we are nailing it! We are working on several gluten-free bread formulas right now. Some of these formulas we will soon be able to share with you.
       
So far we have breads that are like a 50% whole wheat/50% white bread, Challah bread, corn bread, and a "white" sandwich bread that we are making great progress with. These breads have a yeasty flavor and smell like real bread, they have nice spring and hold their shape beautifully for sandwiches and toast. The texture is amazing in the mouth. They are not at all gummy, or sawdust-textured. They are not a gritty, rice bread, or a heavy coconut flour bread, or a dense almond bread. they are not loaded with starches, and they do not have weird off-flavors.

What these breads DO have is a healthy high-fiber content and a very low carb count (great for curbing appetite and aiding in weight loss).


We are very excited to share this with you.




Below are some photos of our gluten-free bread that takes the place of a regular 50/50 whole wheat/white flour gluten-containing bread. we wish you could smell and taste this bread. We really don't think you would miss real bread anymore.
