Gluten Free Bread - Best Deals

15 posts in this topic

I found out today late in the day that Sprouts had Glutino Genisus bread on special for 2.99 per loaf -- it was expiring so I sent a son down to buy as many loaves as he could.

 

I usually stock up on Udi's, Canyon Bakehouse and Glutino whenever they are on special -- especially Udi's and Glutino as they are purchased frozen -- so it really doesn't matter when we buy it.

 

Got me thinking -- perhaps a thread were we can post if we see a very good deal on this gluten-free staple???

That is a good deal!

 

I've been getting mine for a steal at Costco. I pay $7.99 for two loaves. I forget what brand but I'll look the next time I'm in the kitchen. It is a beautiful brown loaf of bread covered in sunflower seeds and with a pretty low carb count from what I am used to and with a ton of fiber. I also can't get over having preservative free bread in my pantry that I can leave there for months on end!

 

Oh, I just found it. It is from the Essential Baking Company.

Months on end? What bread is that? I remember back when i could have such things it would last... maybe a week or so before the mold would claim it.

I get the super seeded multi-grain, because that is what I have available to me in the store. Also, I like getting brown bread. Of course, I also like cheap bread! Having it preservative free though just is 500 kinds of awesome for me.

I wish our Costco had gluten free bread, but they don't. :( I scored a loaf of Rudi's cinnamon raisin bread with their $2 coupon a couple of months ago, while the bread was on sale at our natural foods store for $3.99. They just had Udi's on sale for that too, but I didn't have any coupons. I like Udi's better as I find it easier to get the slices apart when it's frozen, and it thaws super quick on the counter. Trader Joe's has it for $4.99 sold on the shelf and Meijer has it for $5.39 sold frozen. I usually buy at those places. TJ's has the multigrain buns for $3.99 a pack.

We're supposed to be getting a TJ's in the future. I roll my eyes a little at the when though. Could be months, all I know now is the shopping center they'll be at.

I just bought my first (rudis?) bread and now not sure how long it will keep?  Says nothing on the packaging -- anyone know?

costco  carries  Rudi"s  gluten-free  bread  in the  freezer section.

I like  to  freeze  gluten-free bread  if  I'm not  going  to use  it  within  a couple  days.....I  always  put  a  sheet of  wax  paper  between slices  so I  can  take  out  only  what  I  can use at  once.....saves  a  bunch  of  dollars  by  not  wasting  a  whole loaf  of  bread  that  doesn't  get used up....

Udi's ranges from 4.99 to 5.69 regularly here -- sprouts has their gluten-free jubilee ever few months with 25% all gluten-free items and Vons has Udi's on sale for $3.99 occasionally -- I stock my along with my folks extra freezer when on sale as between my hubby, teens and their friends we go through 2-3 loaves per week.

 

I will continue to update when I see current good deals in this corner of the states :)

 

Love the Udi's and Rudi's coupons when I can get them -- there was a gluten-free fair here about a month ago and I stocked up -- I save them for the gluten-free Jubilee and double down ;)

I keep all my gluten-free bread in my big freezer (one of the best investments I've ever made!).  If it's not on sale, i ask the retailer (Sprout's in CA)  for a case of the bread and I get a 15% discount.  I usually have to wait a few days.  We prefer Udi's or Rudi's.  

 

I've always been a baker, making all my own bread, etc., but bought gluten-free bread for my hubby for 12 years.  Now I'm gluten-free too (diagnosed a month ago).  Will be attempting bread soon (when I'm feeling better).  I confess that I just pulled out a batch of gluten-free chocolate chip cookies from the oven this morning before it gets too hot (95 today in LA!)  Yum!

Really good point -- Daughter gets 15% off cases of her gluten free bread at Oliver's Market -- they are only in Santa Rosa -- wish we had them down here!!!  Never thought to ask Sprout's -- will do -- thanks!!!

I never thought of bread by the case either! I always just looked for it on sale. I buy everything else in bulk. My husband about died trying to pour a 25 pound bag of Bob's corn starch into a 5 gallon bucket... but it was such a good deal!

Late to the party with this one, but for anyone in Utah near a Harmon's I picked up Udi's bagels tonight for $3.99. The bread was in the same freezer in an endcap so I think it was also on sale, I didn't note the price though. I actually had a coupon for $2 off an Udi's item so I got my bagels for $1.99! I was bouncing all the way to the front of the store, my husband told me a few times to calm down. :lol:

 

ETA: idk how long this sale lasts, usually their sales are Mon-Sun but I can't find this listed on their website at all on the weekly or monthly sale.

The most expensive I have seen thus far was $10 at a farmer's market for one 8x4 loaf. Yikes!

    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      You might have a corn intolerance or reacting to something else like gums or preservatives.   Just something to consider.  
    • Blood results - odd
      The OP's hemoglobin levels are below range indicating anemia.  Her ferrtin levels (iron storage) is very low.  Like you, my body processes iron just fine.  It was absorbing it that was my issue due to celiac disease.   This explains it better. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/anemia/symptoms-causes/dxc-20183157 Excellent recommendation regarding the Vitamin D.  Other vitamins and minerals should be checked too.  What was odd, and perhaps you can clarify since you are in GB, can you not purchase iron supplements in a drugstore like Boots?    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Fat.  Seriously.  It is what keeps you satiated and does NOT raise blood sugar.  I have been on a Low Carb, High Fat diet for 2-1/2 years.  I eat to my "meter".  I did a lot of testing the first month to see which foods raise my blood glucose levels (no surprise, everyone is different).  Buy a cheap meter and strips at Walmart and test it yourself.   I eat protein in normal amounts (too much and the blood can convert it to glucose), veggies, nuts, dairy, and some fruit.  I do cheat on this diet, but NEVER on the gluten-free diet.  My blood sugar has been close to normal ever since.   Butter melted on my veggies.  Heavy cream.  Avocados, olive oil, meat drippings, bacon.    Yum!   Finally, the American Diabetic Association is recommending this diet for some people.  Why not for all?  They thinks it is too hard to maintain it (they should try maintaining a gluten-free diet!) and to be honest, there is not a one size fits all for diabetics just like celiac disease (we all have our various tolerances beside the need to be gluten-free).   My GP disapproved at first.  Now, he says to keep doing what I am doing.  My cholesterol levels are terrific!  (Normal compared to being super low before I was diagnosed).   I started this LCHF diet because I know that I want to avoid medications for diabetes (insulin excluded).    My gut just can not take it.   I have been weaning my family off all the excess sugar that is so prominent in the Standard American..British..you name it .... diet.  I felt best when I went on this diet after being gluten-free for a year.   So, do your research.  Do what is best for you -- not for the herd!    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi cristiana, The paleo diet and the ketogenic diet would probably be helpful to read up on.  Snack on protein, not sugar and carbs.  You should have protein with every meal.  Protein reduces the meal total glycemic index and lengthens the time before you feel hungry again.   Sugar and carbs shorten the time to feeling hungry again. Or you could just ignore the whole thing and eat lots of sugary foods and carbs like my brother does.  And go half blind and have joint pain and nerve pain.  Those sugary snacks are a poor trade for your health.  
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi everyone.  There is a lot in the press here in the UK about prediabetes and diabetes.  I am an apple shape, as opposed to a pear, which I gather puts me more at risk.  I have a lot of relatives with types 1 and 2 diabetes.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago and the diet has been going so well that I am now putting on weight - I realise I have been eating far too many nice goodies from the Gluten Free Cake Aisle at Marks & Spencers, etc.   I had a bit of a shock this week as I have been very thirsty and as per usual started panicking so instead of doing that my neighbour encouraged me to see my doctor.  Good plan. The preliminary tests show no sugar in my urine; my blood glucose was high normal but I had just eaten.  She is sending me off for one of those HbaIC tests I think it is called just to be sure but she says she thinks I will be fine.  But to cut a long story short, I realise I have got to sort out this sweet tooth of mine. Wake up time! But I am confused. I have been searching a lot on line and there seems to be such contradictory information.  Only this week there was a news item on the BBC about the argument for fewer carbs/full fat - and then Public Health England disputing it.  Then, to go back to the original argument, the BBC filmed a chap at the doctors who had cut his carbs and ate full fat (as well as healthy fruit & veg) and he had lost weight and come off his diabetes meds. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-36345768 I'm thinking prevention is better than cure so I wanted to know, can anyone recommend a website or book that sets out a sensible eating plan, tried and tested, that they have discovered.    Or just any tips?  And I should say - I do get hungry between meals and for many years have suffered from the shakes when I don't eat enough - what is good food to eat for snacking?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
