Gluten Free Breads… HELP! August 21, 2011

Dear Glamour & Green Gluten Free,

 

When it comes to gluten free bread, do you like getting pre-made bread? Or do you use mixes? And what brand do you like the most?

 

Thanks! I love your Blog!

Sincerely,

Marybeth

 

When I do eat bread, the best GF brand EVERRRRRR is Udi’s bread (not Rudi’s). It’s awesome!!!!! Unfortunately I can only find it at Whole Foods, but I may try just requesting it at my local grocery store and seeing if they will bring it as a specialty item. Udi bread now carries hamburger buns and hotdog buns too! They are really yummy. It’s great stuff, but buying GF bread adds up and can be expensive.

 

I actually don’t make my own bread, but I love to bake desserts. The best baking cookbook EVER is a book called Gluten Free Baking Classics by Annalise Roberts. You MUST get this book!!! The desserts are so ridiculously good, and seriously, no one will even know they are gf! The desserts, like the cupcakes and cakes, have been so moist that it’s made me really want to make the bread recipes she lists in her book too. I’m sure they would turn out even better than the Udi’s bread and I think in the long run, making your own bread would be less expensive too!

 

Good luck 🙂

Finally! Fantastic Gluten-Free Bread August 25, 2010

Udi's Gluten-Free Bread I went to Whole Foods the other day in order to pick up some gluten free bread. Now, I hardly ever get gluten free bread. I mean, lets be honest here, gluten-free bread is pretty much gross. Unless I toast it, it’s usually not something I enjoy. And that’s what I set out to do- toast some gluten-free bread, make some GF bread crumbs, and make some homemade GF meatballs for our spaghetti dinner that night.

Anyway, while I was in the gluten-free bread section, a guy watched me as I looked for my typical GF bread brand. He said, “Hey, if you’re looking for gluten-free bread, you should really try Udi’s. It seriously tastes like regular bread.”

I was skeptical, but I still bough a bag of Udi’s Whole Grain Bread Loaf… and let me just tell you: IT’S AWESOME!!!

This bread is good stuff. What a relief to find a brand of gluten-free bread that you don’t even have to toast in order to be edible. This bread is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and nut-free… and it still tastes incredible. It’s almost too good to be true… almost. 🙂

Finally gluten-free bread that just tastes like BREAD. …It’s about time!

 

If you miss sandwiches, like I did, then grab a loaf of Udi’s & enjoy any & all things that require a slice of bread once again.

The History of Udi’s Gluten Free Foods

Several years ago, Udi’s Certified Master Baker, Chadwick White was asked by a friend with celiac disease to create good-tasting gluten-free bread. Unimpressed with what was on the market, White was determined to create superior gluten-free bread solely for Udi’s.
Inspired, White and his team of skilled bakers used their craft, applied artisan baking techniques and ultimately created the secret recipe for Udi’s Gluten Free Foods.
With freshly baked loaves in hand, they presented the soft and moist gluten-free bread to Udi and business partners. Upon first bite, the team was convinced White had successfully combined the perfect ingredients for what is now known as our signature white sandwich bread.
Soon after, the team reached out to a local celiac chapter and invited members to sample the freshly baked gluten-free bread. Words cannot describe the positive reactions achieve that day – people jumped for joy while others were moved to tears.
Thanks to that celiac meeting and the outpouring support and demand from the local gluten-free community, King Soopers in Denver and Whole Foods Rocky Mountain Division put Udi’s Gluten Free Foods on their shelves. Currently, Udi’s Gluten Free is in more than 500 stores nationwide, in 36 states, including Hawaii.
It’s amazing to hear the stories and impact Udi’s Gluten Free has had on the lives of people across the country. We invite you to sit down, savor and enjoy delicious baked goods again. No need to worry, we’ll bake more.
