I personally have never tried amaranth or quinoa breads however you can get breads made of the following ingredients:
Seed Flours - Hemp, Flax, etc
Nut Flours - Almond, Pecan, etc
Bean & Lentil Flours
Gluten-Free Grain Flours - Millet, Buckwheat, Rice, Corn, Teff (Oats if not contaminated)
Grain-like Flours - Amaranth & Quinoa
Tapioca Flour (what is this anyway?)
Of the Gluten Free Varieties, I've found that the best tasting ones are those that you make yourself or from are mix are best as they are fresh & hot. Depending on the type of flour used, when reheating the breads you'll have to add a few drops of water to bring back that moist softness (rice flours). If you don't care about Dairy and/or Trans Fats the two companies I would recommend are:
http://www.kinnikinnick.com (they do have some dairy free versions)
http://www.charlottesbakery.com/ (they have trans fat free breads)
Otherwise here's a list on page 1 of this thread (needs updating) with Brands, Resturants, & Bakeries some local & others that can deliver: http://www.acne.org/...opic=30135&st=0
Hope that helps
P.S. Spelt & Kamut are low gluten breads for those that were hoping to go 100% Gluten Free, these would not be acceptable (unless maybe sprouted).

how do you know if yours haven't been contaiminated?

He probably means contaminated by wheat. Most researchers believe that oats are ok for those sensitive to wheat, however most oats are grown in proximity to wheat and processed in the same plants, so they will almost always have some wheat in them.

whole wheat is certainly better than regular white bread... but many people --including me -- are sensitive to wheat and are better off avoiding it altogether.

I see. Well yeah any bread is better than white bread, the GI content is no good in white bread, or white flower period.
I was just kidding when I said greatest of all greatness, lol.

It's not any better in whole-wheat bread. They BOTH have high GI's.
When it comes to glycemic indexes, people need to get off this "natural" kick. Whether or not a given food product is natural or refined doesn't necessarily have any impact on its GI. What matters is the amount of accompanying fat, protein, soluble fiber, etc. When it comes to GI, whole wheat bread is no better than white bread.

It's still healthier though.
