I have bought several different kins of gluten-free lf sliced bread for sandwiches. None of them have been worth eating. I really miss having a good sandwich. Any suggestions on a good product to purchase? I do not have a bread machine.
Thank you for any suggestions.

I don't know if you can get this where you are, as it is made in Canada (Cambridge, Ontario). I found that the 'gourmet bread' by El Peto is excellent and tastes just like light rye bread. Even my (extremely picky) teenager eats it! Before our store started carrying it, neither one of us ate bread, because all the other breads are gross.

Thank you. I don't know if we get El Peto in North Carolina, but I'll look for it. I agree with you, all the other loaf breads have been gross.

Kinnickinnick makes some good breads. If you can't find them locally you can order them online also. The pizza crusts are good and I also like the donuts.

I get Whole Foods' Gluten Free Bakehouse Sandwich Bread. I personally think it's good. I always toast it though. I don't' know if that's what you are trying to avoid. Without toasting it, it is very crumbly and almost dry. I've also tried Kinnikinnick's White Tapioca Bread and thought it was good. Good luck on your search!

I get The Gluten Free Pantry White Sandwich Bread Mix. It is really easy takes 5-10minutes to prepare then 30-40 minutes to rise (I set it the stove area) and 30 minutes in the oven (while it is rising I pre-heat the oven and make french fries haha). You let it cool on a rack and then slice and freeze (or you can refrigerator if you are going to eat it all that week).
I recommend toasting any gluten free bread gives it a little crunch and is tastes better this way.

I like the above mix but I am going to try to make some different ones soon from some cookbooks just for a change.
GOOD LUCK on finding a bread you like.

After 8 mo of trying, i've managed to make bread. Well, I cant eat it, but my son says its absolutely the best gluten-free bread he's had (he's been gluten free for about 3 months). I used the sandwhich bread recipe from gluten free baking classics, no bread machine, but i did have to buy a bread pan and a thermometer. He's been eating cinnamon toast . .. i cant imagine doing that with awful bread.

Unfortunatly my son was not diagnosed until after I was. Although he could have been a poster child for celiac it was never even considered. He was 20 at diagnosis and unfortunately his growth plates had fused. Take a good look at your son in shorts and a sleeveless Tshirt. If his long bones in his upper arms and thighs seem out of proportion do try to encourage him to be tested. If he is diagnosed in time most will regain some of the growth lost. I would give anything to have been able to get my son diagnosed in time for him to have gained even an inch. While your son at 5'6" is not abnormally small at the size my son is it has greatly damaged his selfesteem and it is extremely hard for him to find clothes. One other thing to pass on to your son- does he suffer from acne? If he does chances are that will be a thing of the past once he is gluten-free. I can't guarentee of course but that held true for all the members of my family.

The absolute best bread is from The Grainless Baker. I particularly love their mock rye bread for sandwiches and the cinnamon raisin bread for breakfast or snack.

You don't even need to toast it to eat it. It's great!

Thank you. My son is almost 22, so I figured his growth plates were closed too. And I've always thought he was proportionately well built. I just agonize about this a bit, because I know he wanted to be taller, and then when I learned about my gluten intolerance & it's relationship to growth, I wondered abou him. He is very lucky to be 5'6", and has adjusted to his height. I'm sure it's much harder for your son who is shorter. I do appreciate your input.
