Any one try this ? I have to trek out to Publix to get my dairy free butter, and notice they carry this one which Kroger does not. Kroger carries that EnerG stuff tthat my family does not like. This stuff worth trying next time I trek out there?

Acutally, it was the first bread I tried. Not too bad, a bit sticky but not as crumbly as some, taste not bad either. Worth a try!

Very dense, but I actually like it. Great for PB&J.

Very dense and hard to pry apart. I think I through out the loafs I tried twice. Very gooey. No luck here, but I guess everyone's taste buds are different.

Sorry, but I didn't care for it! It was the first gluten-free bread that I tried--I bought the Brown Rice and the Pecan Raisin--the Pecan Raisin was acceptable only if toasted with a lot of butter. The regular Brown Rice--I did not like at all.

I am a big fan of all Food For Life gluten free breads and products, but as with any product it comes down to personal taste.

I like the brown rice bread and the Pecan, they have 2 new breads that don't have gluten or yeast- great for people who can't tolerate yeast as well- I think a nut, fruit, and seed variety and a nut and seed variety.

I definitely agree that the bread is better toasted. When I first bring it home from the store I separate out all the slices with a sheet of waxed paper in between and then I keep it in the freezer and just take out a slice at a time as needed and pop it into the toaster, other wise it's hard to get them apart when it's frozen. Also, I found it tended to get a little more dry when stored in the fridge, and it crumbled and fell apart when stored on the counter, so it works best for me stored in the freezer.

This is my favorite of all the gluten-free breads - kind of chewy, like a bagel. I freeze it but put wax paper between each slice before as they stick together. Freezes beautifully and stays soft and chewy!

It was the first one for me and I really liked it! I'm not too picky though...I like the Ener-G stuff too.

The Brown Rice Bread is the one I eat too. I love it!

I tried the White Rice but it always fell apart.

Good luck to you in your bread search!

I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to comment :)

After spending $11 of some loaves of gluten-free bread, I found this brown rice bread at Trader Joe's for $3.49, and I think it is my favorite!!

For the past 2 mornings I have been having 2 slices of it toasted with butter and yummy!! I actually love the chewiness. But then I was never really a fan of sandwich bread before.

I actually prefer all the gluten-free bread to any of the commercial wheat sandwich bread anytime!

    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
