Rudi's Bread ?

I had to laugh when I saw this but there is a bread in the Market Basket chain called Rudi's gluten free bread. Does anyone know what it tastes like? Is it similar to Udi's or did they just mimic the name for advertising reasons. hahahahaha

I find Rudi's to be BETTER than Udi's. It is softer and makes a better sandwich, IMO.

I tried both Udi's and Rudi's, and toasted they taste like the same thing to me. Some of my Rudi's loafs had some holes in it, though, which annoyed me. You just have to be careful to get the gluten free kind because I think Rudi's makes non-gluten-free bread as well.

I have the Rudi's gluten-free Wholegrain right now and I like it a little better than Udi's wholegrain. It has more of a "bread" flavor.

Rudi's is different than Udi's. Rudi's is based in Boulder, CO; Udi's is based in Denver, CO. My husband and I prefer the Rudi's whole grain bread. Both companies also make evil bread, but Udi's has a seperate bakery for the gluten-free bread. (I don't know if Rudi's has a whole seperate facility, but I'm pretty sensitive, and I do well with 2 slices every couple of days.) Apparently both now have hot dog and hambuger buns. . . But I have yet to see them at my local store. My King Soopers (Kroger) carries a line that isn't certified for gluten-free buns. <_<

But both Rudi's and Udi's are YUMMY!!! We did wonder at the names though! Especially as both are Colorado based. . . :P

Hi All,

My name is Maeve and I work at Udi's Gluten Free Foods. Just want to clarify that while the names are similar, Udi's is not related to or affiliated with Rudi's. Udi's Gluten Free products are baked in our certified gluten-free bakery in Denver, CO, but sold in stores all over the country! If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to email me.

Thanks,

Maeve Whelan-Wuest

BE CAREFUL!!!! In many of our stores, Rudi's bread is all together in the refrigerated bread section. I mistakingly bought a loaf of GLUTEN bread that was next to the entire display of gluten-free bread and poisoned both of my kids <_<

Yikes! My stores stock it all in the same section too. If it helps the gluten-free ones are in blue bags and the wheat ones are yellow and red I think.

I had never purchased it before, wanted to try it bc everyone raves about it. I didn't know they had both varieties. You'd think after 5 years I'd be a little bit smarter and read the stinkin package! :rolleyes:

I haven't tried Rudi's sandwich bread but I have tried the hamburger and hot dog buns. The burger buns are good but they don't at all remind me of the "real" thing. They are very hearty and have millet, flax, and sunflower seeds. I think they make better buns for deli style sandwiches than for a traditional burger.

I didn't love the hotdog buns. They tasted the same as the burger ones but they weren't soft and you pretty much had to cut them in half to get the hotdog in and then toppings kept dropping out the bottom. I also thought the seeds were even more out of place with hotdogs but that is just me. I like my junk food to taste like junk food! lol

I would LOVE to try Udi's buns. They look much more like the real thing and I love, love, love their bread! Just have to wait for my store to stock them!

Hi all! We are RRRRudi's (no connection to Udi's)! We are based in Boulder, Colorado and our gluten-free breads are sold nationally. Our bakery was founded in 1976 and our roots are in organic baking. We went to work on baking gluten-free bread after we heard the call from so many in the celiac and gluten-intolerant communities. After testing over 100 recipes we launched our gluten-free bread line last summer.

Please note our gluten-free breads are clearly marked on the front of the package (blue bags) with GLUTEN-FREE and are found in the freezer section. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks,

Maggie

Maggie here from Rudi's Gluten-Fre Bakery. To answer ButterfI8's question -

We do not have a dedicated gluten-free facility, we do have a segregated, separate manufacturing approach. We bake our gluten free breads on separate, dedicated equipment and on separate production days. You can feel assured our gluten free products never come into contact with something used to make a product containing gluten. As part of our manufacturing process, we also do the following:



  • Our organic and gluten free equipment is color-coded for easy segregation
  • Our gluten free breads are baked only after our facility has gone through an extensive, full day clean-up process
  • All incoming ingredients are also tested and certified to be gluten free
  • As part of our gluten free certification, every batch of our gluten free bread is tested and must test below <10 ppm of gluten for distribution
  • We also send product to an outside lab to validate our test results and ensure we have less than 10 ppm of gluten

Thanks!

Maggie, Rudi's Gluten-Free Bakery

Except when they're not. And at my stores they're not and they're mixed in with the regular bread. Just be careful!!

Last week I gave my dd Bell and Evans chicken tenders (not gluten-free) the darn boxes are sooo similar. Thankfully my husband caught it before I gave her seconds.

I think sometimes I just get relaxed and am not shopping consciously, like driving. :)

I've tried both, and I actually like Udi's better. I think the white sandwich bread is a little bit lighter, which is what I like in a sandwich bread. It's just a preference. Definitely take them both out for a spin!

I'm a Canyon Bakehouse San Juan bread fan! They are also from Colorado, I think. I never liked white Wonder Bread.

What is it about Colorado & gluten free? Could it become the Gluten Free Homeland? ;)

I like both Rudi's and Udi's. They both ROCK!

My daughter (also celiac) lives in Denver. I'm sure she has no idea how fortunate she is to live in such a gluten-free city with tons of restaurants and access to gluten-free foods.

At least he'll give you a great place to visit!!! My daughter is in grad school at the University of Colorado at Denver (class of 2012). Hopefully she doesn't plan to become a professional student. :P

    • Chipolte New Marinade
      I don't think any of their food was " certified" gluten-free?  
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      Is there anyone else "pre-celiac" and asymptomatic like me who has had long-term success without losing their mind and still enjoying eating out without feeling like you have to stay in a plastic bubble?  This site has been helpful to me these past months.   I don't have it "Yet" and I am scared.  Sorry this is long but I wanted to be thorough: Two years ago I started experiencing GERD (heart burn, pain under my left rib cage, and regurgitation).  After trying probiotics, kambucha, kefir, apple cider vinegar, aloe juice, eliminating chocolate, citrus, tomatoes, spices, cinnamon, mint, alcohol, not eating 3 hours before bed, I was no better. I got an endoscopy/colonoscopy.  The dr found gastritis and esophagitis.  No hernia, infection or ulcer.  He started me on PPI.  I got 99% relief.  After 6 months I decided to go off PPI.  After suffering for 3 months, I went back to dr and back on PPIs for a year.  Because I am young, 39, and the PPIs have side effects, he discussed surgery with me. I went to a specialist. All the tests showed my esophagus was normal but my lower esophageal sphincter was not closing properly.  I was a good candidate and decided on the MUSE, (Endoscopically stapling the esophagus to prevent reflux) When the specialist did his endoscopy (1 year after previous one and before I was on PPIs regularly)  he saw villi damage that looked like textbook Celiac.  HUH?  I don't have ANY symptoms.  No cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, gas, discomfort, NOTHING.  He took biopsies and the results were "non-specific" perhaps "clinically latent celiac sprue" or a number of other things. So I took blood tests.  The celiac gene test was "susceptible" and I had "high" antibodies, but not positive.  Dr said go gluten-free to prevent  celiac. Did the PPIs cause the villi damage because I couldn't absorb the wheat properly and triggered celiac in me?  It sounds reasonable.   I wonder if now that I have had the MUSE and may be able to stop PPIs, will I be able to digest gluten better? Very interesting.  I plan to call a celiac specialist where I live to discuss this with him. I have not eaten gluten intentionally for 2.5 months now.  It did not help my GERD before the surgery.  Dr said they were unrelated anyway.  I am concerned about CC, breathing in, and accidental ingestion, but since I have no symptoms, I can never tell.  So I take glutenease when I eat out and glutamine powder to try to repair the damage.  How careful should I be since I don't have it "yet"? Amy's gluten-free frozen foods are great, and I read every label at Trader Joe's, eat off the gluten-free menu, corn tortillas @ Mexican, no soy sauce or imitation crab @ sushi, steamed veggies @ Chinese, & gluten-free pasta @ Italian. Member Lisa wrote, "Even though you eat as gluten free as possible, you probably consume close to that amount of gluten due to cross contamination in processed gluten free food and other exposures. ...Eating 100% gluten free is a total improbability. "
      Most people with Celiac can handle 20ppm.  So is that equivalent to breathing in flour?  Having a half a teaspoon of soy sauce by accident in Asian food?  I can live without bread and cookies, but gluten is IN  so many things. Some on this site with Celiac have separate toasters, don't eat out, and don't walk into bakeries while there are others that eat out and eat fries made in shared oil at BK.  Even I haven't done that.  Isn't it dangerous? Thank you for you help!!
    • Pins And Needles
      You sure did nail it! I was too worried it was MS or Lupus or Celiac to be able to really give that option a chance. If anything my guess was low b12. The only obvious things in my diet are Vitamin water and protein bars. If you look at food it's in practically everything in pretty high doses. Going gluten-free uncovered this or made it start. MTHFR gene maybe? Magnesium too low? I haven't taken my multi & am looking up everything I'm eating. Still having the twitches but not near as much in my calves and feet. My arch pain is gone & energy is up a bit. Still twitching though and had some arm and shoulder pain overnight. I read it can be 6 months or longer for nerves to heal.
    • Chipolte New Marinade
      Chipotle is changing their preparation methods including how the marinade for the chicken and steak. Does anyone know if it's been certified gluten free?
