Anyone Know Where To Buy Udi's In Canada?
0

26 posts in this topic

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

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'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!

How about the Victoria area?

Sadie, if you're still around, I've seen Udi's at Pepper's in Cadboro Bay and at Planet Organic at Quadra and Mackenzie.

Also at WHOLE FOODS on FOurth Avenue (and slightly better priced there).

There is Udi's in the GTA! Portions in Guelph now carries it. They have 2 types of bread, muffins, bagels, and pizza crusts! They also carry tons of other gluten-free stuff, including their own fresh baking and prepared frozen meals. They have lots of Shar stuff too, which I love. So check out portions, worth the drive to Guelph for Udi's alone, plus all their other great stuff!

The Natural Food Pantry in Ottawa has the BEST gluten free bagels I have ever tasted. They tasted like REAL bread.

Nut'n Gluten in Vaughan for the GTA folks supposedly has amazing bread too.

I have tried the Udi's products but have to say that O'Doughs has a much better line up of breads and other goodies. Check out their website www.odoughs.com They have a great store locator and their stuff is very well priced. My favorites are the Flax Pizza Kit, Flax Loaf and the Banana Chocolate Chip Cake. I dare you all to try them. YOU WILL NEVER GO BACK TO ANY OTHER BRAND.. I promise :)

I'm new to this forum and about a year into gluten free. I had a friend (also gluten free) who came to visit and brought Udi's bread, bagels and muffins. It was the first time I had ever tasted gluten free bread or bagels that didn't taste like cardboard and sawdust!! I'm in the Kitchener area and don't drive but would love to find a local place that carries Udi's.

Glad to hear they are now carrying it.

The packaging has both French and English on it. Not sure if that is something they had to do specially to send stuff to Canada.

We have had Udi's products available to us in little Regina, SK for quite some time now. I believe it is now available in a dozen stores in our city. Just tell the Calgary stores that if little Regina can be accomodating, they should be able to manage as well.

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms.
