Panera bread is a staple in every family’s diet.
You might even have a panera in your kitchen with your children.
But if you don’t, it’s a great source of gluten-free bread, according to the Panera website.
“The Panera gluten-Free Menu has over 50 gluten- Free options to choose from.
Whether you want a gluten- free bread recipe or a gluten free pasta recipe, you can find it on Panera.com,” the website says.
The Panera Gluten-Free menu also includes a bread-and-butter panini.
“Panera Bread is available in more than 60 varieties including: wheat gluten-baked, rice gluten- baked, wheat gluten, corn gluten-bread, wheat, gluten-lentil, brown rice gluten, and more,” the Paneras website says, adding that “the Panera is gluten- and dairy-free and has no added sugars, sugars or artificial flavors.”
There are other recipes on the Panerettes Gluten Free Bread recipe page, which includes a panini, a bread pudding, a baguette, a pasta salad, and a bread sandwich.
But there’s a big difference between the two: The Panerases bread is made with wheat flour, whereas the Panerbess’ bread is gluten free.
“I love the fact that Panera’s bread is truly gluten- or dairy- free,” said Laura Todras, who is also the director of health at Gluten & Milk, an organization that fights the stigma around gluten-containing foods.
“They’re really doing a great job.”
But you can’t always have everything, especially when it comes to gluten-based foods, she said.
“We are constantly fighting for gluten-inclusivity in our food and our communities,” Todros said.
Gluten is a complex protein that can be found in all kinds of foods, including wheat, barley, rye, rye grain, millet, and some types of oats.
There are two types of gluten: the short chain and the long chain.
The short chain is what we usually think of as the most prevalent gluten.
The long chain is made up of the protein that’s in the wheat, rye and barley grains, but is also found in oats, rye bread, and other grains.
But unlike the long-chain gluten, the short-chain type is not usually considered “bad” for you because it is the only type of gluten that you can get.
“It’s not really about being gluten-sensitive, but it’s the type of thing you’re sensitive to and is part of your diet,” said Todroas.
Todrons said that she would try to limit her gluten intake as much as possible.
“If you have to have it, it might be a good idea to limit your gluten intake to 1/3 of your normal amount,” she said, adding, “If there are other foods you need to include, like wheat-free cookies or rice-free pasta, it doesn’t hurt to take care of those.”
If you don, you’ll still be eating breads with wheat, but at a lower level of gluten, Todra said.
The reason is that gluten-rich foods are generally more difficult to digest.
The best way to prevent gluten-induced bloating and gas is to eat whole wheat flour.
“A whole wheat wheat flour bread or a whole wheat pasta with olive oil and lemon juice would be a great option for people who don’t like bread and want to avoid gluten,” Tods said.
Toodras added that she also recommends making gluten-less bread at home, because you don`t need to worry about the gluten.
She said she would make a bread like a bagel, with all of the flour and then add the milk and sugar and then bake it at 350 degrees for an hour or so.
“For the bread, it needs to be really well-browned, and if you have a really good gluten-cured loaf, it will be even better,” she explained.
“You don’t have to use a whole bagel,” Toda said.
If you’re not allergic to wheat, there are some gluten-friendly foods that are good for you, too.
Todo, a vegan, says the breads are a good source of protein, and she also has no problem eating the gluten-filled bread.
“To me, breads make me feel good,” she told the Huffington Post.
“When you’re feeling a little sick, like when you’re a little stressed or just plain stressed out, I think you could use a little bit of something like that, and I don’t know about anyone else but myself that would be better off than that.”
