Gluten Free Bread and Muffins

FODMAP Free doesn’t mean no bread or muffins!  There are a lot of gluten free flour alternatives and Xanthan gum is a FODMAP Free thickening agent.


Below is a general guideline for adding xanthan gum and Guar Gum in Gluten-Free Cooking:

  • Bread and pizza dough recipes: Add 1 teaspoon xanthan gum or guar gum per cup of gluten-free flour used in bread and pizza dough recipes
  • Cake, muffin and quick bread recipes: Add 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum or guar gum per one cup of gluten-free flour used
  • Cookie and bar recipes: Add 1/2 teaspoon (or less) xanthan gum or guar gum per one cup gluten-free flour used

    Gluten-free fad diets have recently become popular. A 2012 study concluded “There is no evidence to suggest that following a gluten-free diet has any significant benefits in the general population. Indeed, there is some evidence to suggest that a gluten-free diet may adversely affect gut health in those without celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.”

    Look at all of the most up-to-date short article on our own blog


      Fad diets are often a problem, but for those who have persistent GI issues, the FODMAP diet has provided RELIEF! FODMAP sufferers do have gluten sensitivity.

    Hi I’m new to the FODMAPS diet, still getting used to it. Can I have ciabatta bread?

    also i’m having trouble finding exactly what i can and can’t eat as different sites have different foods. would you be able to help me with what exactly i can and cannot have?

    thank you in advance



      We have never made ciabatta bread, but if it is made with gluten-free flour, it should be OK. Most commercial or bakery breads contain gluten, lactose (milk and/or butter), and apple cider vinegar. Ciabatta bread usually does not.

      The FODMAP diet IS confusing and there is contradictory information out there. We believe this is because the diet is relatively new as a treatment for various GI (IBS) symptoms — it was developed in 1999 by Dr. Sue Shepherd. As more people try it, refinements and variations are constantly being identified. For example, some people have trouble with molasses and maple syrup and others must eliminate almost all sweeteners.

      You should work with your gastroenterologist and a dietician to develop the right food plan for you, but we have had great success with the FODMAP Foods – Reference List from the IBS Group (under our Grocery Shopping tab). We recommend starting with a strict FODMAP elimination diet and then try certain foods, one at a time, to learn your particular IBS triggers. A food diary in which you write down everything you eat, even the brand names (content various across brands), is useful so you can track your successes and triggers.

    Gluten is NOT actually prohibited in a low-FODMAP diet. To quote the Monash University website: “When following the low FODMAP diet, fructans and other FODMAPs, but not gluten, are restricted. A strict life-long ‘gluten-free’ diet is only required if you have been diagnosed with coeliac disease.” See the full article here:
    Monash University is the main source of FODMAP-related research being conducted over the last few years, and an authoritative resource.



      Leigh — Thanks for sharing this! Gluten is one of the main differences between low FODMAP and FODMAP free. Unfortunately, many people, perhaps as many as 5 to 10 percent of the population, have gluten sensitivity (according to the Center for Celiac Research and Treatment). Gluten sensitivity presents many of the same symptoms as Celiac, but the symptoms are less severe and more easily managed.
