A Good Gluten Free Bread

My grand niece has just been diagnosed as being Gluten intolerant. She is only 7.My niece has asked me what is a good store bought bread for her to use to make her a sandwich. As I know nothing about this I told her I would come to the experts. TIA

My favorite is Udi's Gluten Free White Sandwich Bread....closest I've found yet to "real" bread. For baguettes/french/italian bread I use Against the Grain Baguettes.

I have to agree, that Udi's has the best tasting gluten-free bread... their white sandwich bread is the BEST!

I agree that Udi's is the best. Honestly, it's the only GF bread I've found that is actually edible. I've thrown away $6 loaves of GF bread that could've stood in as door stops. lol One thing I recommend with Udi's is to keep it in the freezer and make sandwiches with the frozen bread. I know it sounds weird but it keeps the bread from getting too dry. If you keep it in the fridge it will be almost too dry to eat.

I agree. Keeping it in the freezer keeps it "fresher" or something.

I'm late reading this but I have to add my 2 cents I love Whole Foods brand of gluten free white sandwich bread. It's in the freezer and it's pretty tasty after you toast it. They also have amazing biscuits and other delicious wheat-free products including pizza crusts. It's not easy eating gluten-free but they've got tons of products out now for your grand-niece.

Just saw this, or I would have told you sooner!

Laura, DH has been trying all the GF breads we could get. He says that Udis is the best he has had. Not as good as reg. bread of course, but it is the best. They also make hamburger and hotdog buns.

I use a tapioca bread made by ener-y that is not only gluten free but also low carb. It tastes like white bread and toasts great.

Wow! This has been great to read. I don't eat breads at all anymore, but it would be so nice to have something tasty and low carb to give the kids. It seems like so much of what's out there (gluten-free) is super high in starches, and I think the kids are sensitive to that. Oceandiva, I am going to look for that ener-y bread because I would love a grilled cheese sandwich!! Also, I want to add that my kids don't really like any of my breads/pizza crusts that I have made with almond flour and coconut flour. Well, it is really the one very picky eater! LOL.

Thanks!

Before I started lowcarbing again (last month)... I was diagnosed with gluten-intolerance 2 years ago. I gained 20 lbs because I ate so many carbs just because they were gluten-free! I found out most gluten-free carbs are VERY high in sugars so BOO!

But once I get closer to goal I will allow myself a gluten-free carb treat once in a blue moon...

I can tolerate sprouted wheat breads and those are usually pretty close to "the real thing." Trader Joes brand is good and there is a Bay Area bakery called "Alvarado St" that has really nummy stuff- breads, buns, bagels. They carry it at most regular grocery stores and WF here. Ezekial brand is good too.

If she can handle the sprouted wheat it opens up a lot of options.

I get Ener-gy bread from my local health food store. It's gluten free and low carb. I like the Tapioca Flour one. Having eggs, bacon and toast is one of life's pleasures.

I have recently self-diagnosed myself as having a mild gluten intolerance. (Abdominal bloat, fatigue). Recently stumbled upon the Udi's brand. So far, have tried the white sandwich bread and it is delicious! The slices are very small, but I like that because when I make sandwiches, I prefer less bread and more other stuff! Today I went to a natural market and discovered they carry many more Udi's so I picked up the Cinnamon raisin bread and hamburger buns. Since I'm still watching my carbs, these will be an occasional treat and will store in the freezer. Of course, it's very pricy too- another reason to use sparingly.

I have had trouble finding any store that carries these. It is getting really frustrating. I need to find something that dh can eat and he is picky.

Joelle, do you happen to have a Costco near you? I've actually been buying Rudi's gluten-free multi-grain bread--two loaves for 6.99, I think. It's pretty good and even my 12 year-old son will eat it. If you have a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods nearby, they would have both Udi's and Rudi's breads. There may be some other brands that are good as well but those are the two that I like. The thing with gluten-free bread is that it isn't ever going to taste just like regular bread :\ but you can get a pretty close approximation. I still love the Udi's bread more but since I can get Rudi's for almost half the price at Costco, I've been using it instead.

I will check costco next time I am there. Our trader joes doesn't carry any bread other than their brand. We don't have a whole foods very close, but I may have to make the drive. Thanks for the info.

Udis is the best tasting! But very high in carbs. The lowest in carbs is EnerG which has about 7 carbs a slice--best toasted.

I have been thnking of going gluten free. My mom has been gf for a year now and she says she can throw together a loaf of gf bread in her bread machine in eight minutes, without a recipe anymore. I'm not ready for that yet, though. I will have to look into some of the store bought brands suggested here. There is a good health food store nearby.

I'm starting gluten free with my low carb diet. Even if someone isn't doing low carb or doesn't need to diet, gluten isn't good for the body. I read an article yesterday about how gluten is causing many autoimmune disorders (not just celiac). The article talked about 'leaky gut syndrome' incase you want to Google it .

I too believe everyone can benefit from cutting out the wheat. DH has to, but I see how it has helped me to do so also. Lots of good info on this coming out lately.

I have to agree that Udi's is the best to buy but if she's willing to bake her own then there is a box mix from The Gluten-Free Pantry called Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix. It is so yummy! I can buy it at our local Wal-mart. It's in a green and white box.

My favorite GF bread

Udi's bread is just O.K. to me. I have been GF for about 6 years and have tried soooo many gross gf products and finally found a really great bread.

I love GF bread! It's awesome! Fresh and does not fall apart. My husband is not GF and he loves it too.
Good luck

Hubby says the udis has to be warmed a bit in micro to taste its best ( or toasted). Fresh is good, but quickly dries out too

I don't eat bread any more myself. Rarely......gotten past the desire for it.

UDI has the best bread IMO. I have been on a low carb diet and gluten free for over 10 years.

I am just about to order some GF bread from Julian Bakery in CA. They now have a low carb Paelo...one made with coconut flour and one with almond flour. So far the reviews I have read are good.
