Dr. O or anyone out there,

      Would like to know if anyone has tried or familiar with Chebe's Original Bread Mix.

I've been using it to make tortillas which come out pretty good, but would like to know

it the ingredients are Gluten Free.  (INGREDIENTS: Manioc (Tapioca) flour, Modified Manioc

Starch (100% Manioc), Dry Milk, Iodine-Free Sea Salt. Non-GMO.  I'm hoping y'all can

help me because I reallly like these tortillas, I do add my own ingredients and they come

out wonderful.  So I hope it's Gluten Free.   Please Help

Thanks, molly

I would like to know the answer to that too!  I usually contact the manufacturer and ask questions like are any other gluten containing products processed on the same equipment as this.  Most people are real helpful. I just sent a question to a wild rice flour company and they told me there is no way they can guarantee it because it is processed on the same equip as wheat. It was dissapointing, but I made sure I thanked her for the honesty. That meant a lot to me!

I did contact to company a few years ago and if I remember this is the only flour they process.  I'm just wondering if it True Gluten Free or Not.  As for as the processing I not toworried about. The owner them self have Celiac Disease.  I guess I'm questioning it because it like the Sorghum flour, I believe Dr. O indicated that it has corn in it which I would have never quested.  So I was hoping that he may have heard were this Manioc flour comes from and is it safe.  It makes great tortillas.

Thanks,

Yes it is gluten freeSmile,

Manioc is a root vegetable.

I have tried the Chebe mixes (there are 4 or 5) and they are indeed good. Especially when they first come out of the oven. My H.E.B even has some in the freezer section that just need to be popped in the oven no mixing required! Only drawback I find is they get VERY rubbery the moment they cool. Will be anxiously awaiting more updates on this! Especially interested in the tortilla version. The contact phone is 1-800-217-9510  www.chebe.com

sorry it's taking me a while to get back on the recipe of the tortillas, but I realize that the company has change to ingredents a

little with their NEW pkging. And they have added some ingredents to their new boxes and I need to check them out all over

again, So we can't use the old not printed yet tortilla recipe because they changed the ingredents and I need to try the new

box now since they will not longer make the red bags.  They have added Sodium Bicarbonate & cream of tartar and their

manioc starch indicated Modified. DR. O do I need to be on guard with the new ingredents?  Please let me know. Also their

Manio flour now says manioc (tapioca) flour. So I check out there New box with there ingredents first and see it I have to

ajust it and let you know.

Manioc is fine.  I would be warry of the other added ingredients, especially the “modified” term.
