Review of UDI's Gluten-Free Whole Grain Bread




If you have a gluten sensitivity, or worse, Coeliac disease, you know what it is like to be missing the taste and texture of "real" (i.e., wheat flour) bread. It inevitably means trying a lot of substitute product out there that claims to be healthful and gluten-free, but that generally tastes pretty awful (like reconstituted library paste)and/or has the texture of styrofoam (come to think of it, tastes like styrofoam too).

I first found Udi's Whole Grain Bread in a Safeway in Vancouver in May. My husband and I were delighted with the way it toasted up, its soft, chewiness, and its genuinely delicious flavour. Now I actually believe that it tastes better than "real" bread.

In our smaller community on Vancouver Island we are only able to find it at our well-stocked health food store. It is kept in the freezer there so we generally eat it toasted when we get it home, or until the rest of the loaf has thawed. When I take the Uti's bread to the check-out counter in the store there are usually a number of other shoppers in line who have positive comments to make about how much better Udi's products are than the other gluten-free breads on the shelves, how their children are finally able to have something palatable again.

I haven't tried Udi's muffins, but after watching the video review above, I think they will be on my next grocery list.
