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!
