I just trekked it over to Whole Foods only to be told that they've never even heard of Udi's.

I was so annoyed that I emailed them and pleaded with them to start carrying Udi's products. I was emailed back by someone at WF and she said because of french/english labelling requirements in Canada, the fact that the bread is fresh (short shelf life), and the fact that she doesn't know of anyone who's distributing it here, it's unlikely that they'll start carrying it :angry: .


So SICK of the crappy selection of gluten free foods we have here in Canda. We have NOTHING. Don't they realize we need gluten free choices here too?

Sorry....ranting....just annoyed because I was really excited about Udi's bread :(

Actually, gluten-free food makers located here in Canada include El Peto, Glutino, Kinnikinnick, and Tinkyada. Depending on where you are, it may be difficult to find a store that carries them.

Thanks Peter! I have tonnes of Kinnikinnick (sp?) products and absolutely love them but I was stoked to try Udi's bread because of all the raving reviews. My son is so picky and I'm yet to find a gluten free bread that he'll eat. It'd be nice if our selection in Canada was expanded :D

I'm in the Toronto area. RideAllWays is in BC. I'm thinking mommyto3 is in Ontario. I am sure we will all be watching for Udi's in stores where we are.

Nature's Fair!!! We have one in Kamloops too! If not the Whole Foods is in Kelowna, still fairly close. I'll be SO excited if they finally carry a good bread to have sandwiches on.

The Whole Foods in Penticton will be a little while longer. I suspect by the first week of September. All Natures Fare stores will be carrying Udi's Breads to start and hopefully the muffins, pizza crusts and bagels as well. We are trying to get Udi's into the Ontario market as quickly as possible but it will not happen as fast as the West Coast. Whole Foods Ontario - 2 locations - Oakville and Toronto want to carry the product and we are trying to get it to this market as quickly as possible. Look for it in natural stores and then supermarkets next. Probably in the next 2 months...end of Sept...beginning October, for the Ontario market.

I just bought some Udi's bread at Save-On Foods in the Edmonton, AB area. I'm impressed...it's very good! I'm trying the lemon streusel muffins next. ;-)

I'm so excited that Save-On now carries Udi's bread! When I was in Seattle, I was able to experience it fresh, and recently bought a few packages (not cheap at $6.29 CAN each) from the frozen section in Save-On-Foods. To avoid drying it out, I leave the whole package in the fridge instead of defrosting every morning.

The Udi's white bread reminds me exactly of the old Italiano (gluten!) bread I used to eat, when toasted.

The thing I like best is that it doesn't taste sweet! Like a lot of gluten free breads I try..

I don't know all the breads you've tried but I have 4 children who are all gluten free and all 4 of them really like the Food for Life Brown Rice Bread, even the 2 picky kids! (I can't use Udi's because 2 of them are also egg-free). I have toasted it and used it for sandwiches in their school lunches. I was afraid it would be hard or yucky by the time they ate it, but they all like it!
