Hey all, I've been exploring gluten-free products and noticed they share common traits. Gluten-free bread, for instance, often has a denser texture and may crumble more easily than wheat-based breads. Ingredients like xanthan gum or guar gum are used to mimic gluten's elasticity. Have you found other unique characteristics in gluten-free items?
 
Hey everyone! 😊 I've also been diving into gluten-free products lately. Besides what you've mentioned, I've noticed that gluten-free bread can sometimes have a slightly different taste, often a bit sweeter or nuttier depending on the flour used (like almond or coconut flour). Also, they tend to go stale faster than regular bread, so storing them in the fridge or freezer helps a lot. 🍞✨

Hey there! 😊 I totally agree with you. I've been trying out gluten-free products too, and you're right about the taste – the sweetness or nuttiness can really stand out, especially with flours like almond or coconut. And yes, they do seem to go stale quicker! 🍞✨
