Rudi's Gluten Free Multigrain Bread
0

18 posts in this topic

Today while browsing at Costco in Colorado Springs, CO I came across Rudi's Gluten Free Multigrain bread, 2- 18 oz. loaves for $6.99. You have to buy a package of two. I have found this bread a much better buy over another popular brand, and now have made this my bread of choice for store purchased gluten free bread. I do not know if it is carried at other Costco stores in other states, but I was estatic to find this product at this price.At last, a bread I can afford.

Thanks for the reminder! I believe someone else here reported finding it in a Northern Virginia Costco. I need to check my store. I don't currently have a Costco membership but if they carry Rudi's I will get one just for that! Rudi's is my favorite over that other one with the simialar sounding name too. ;)

Ha ha! Yes, I also switched from the "U" to the "R" bread!

I only tried U once. Never again. Thanks for the Costco heads up. Yes, that would definitely save me $ to join just for R bread. LOVE their cinnamon raisin.

I would love to know the comparison between R and U. Would someone enlighten me on the texture, visual appeal, flavour? I have not ever seen R here (unsure if it is available in Canada) and am wondering what I am missing? I only eat bread about once a week (or less) because the real glutenous version is forever implanted in my brain so nothing compares. Sure, some homemade gluten-free is ok, but will never be the same. Sigh...

I would to love sink my teeth into a thick chewy crusty bread perfect for making bruschetta or crostini. Anything like it on the market?

Did find some Lara bars and was quite underwhelmed. They were alright but I would happily live without! :P

I recently took out the Costco membership only because one opened up near where I live in Arizona....I also belong to Sam's, and the membership cost is split between my sister and I. I also love Rudi's Cinnamon bread, and Costco only sells the multigrain, which I also prefer. I found the Rudi's bread near the bread/cakes/pastry area in an open freezer case on an end aisle....I never venture into that area because of my many food allergies, but hubby was looking for a loaf of gluten bread so I tagged along and am glad I did.I also am able to eat a Costco rotisserie chicken...no wheat,dairy or soy in it. I had to stop eating Sam's rotisserie chicken years ago because of the ingredients. Will have to check the ingredients again next time I shop. Really hate to have membership in both stores, but for me it is necessary. Have purchased a freezer that is kept well stocked with safe food.

Love2travel,

We in California FINALLY have Against the Grain baguettes available to us through Whole Foods. I also longed to eat a gluten-free version of sourdough bread--and now I have it! The two varieties that I've found are the Original and Rosemary baguettes. Here's Against the Grain's website:

If I were using store bought bread to make bruschetta or crostini, I would choose R. I have tried both, and like both. My favorite is R as I think it has a little bit more depth of flavor than U. That said, R does not hold up as well when making a sandwich on non-toasted bread. My son can make a sandwich in the morning before school, and still eat it in one piece at lunch. I have always preferred my sandwiches on toasted bread, but on the occasion that I am in a rush and don't have time to toast, U definitely works better. I think U bread holds up better in general, as compared to R.

I found a wonderful recipe for french bread on the Fire and Salt website. It is my family's favorite. We are 4 out of 5 of us gluten free. I have to say, it took each of us, on average, 2 to 3 years of being away from bread before we were able to find some gluten free breads that we liked. I think we had to be away from the flavor of wheat long enough to be able to appreciate other flavors that were not the same as wheat...but still good.

Isn't it funny how different people can expereince completey different things? My expereience has been the opposite! Udi's untoasted falls apart for me at the slightest bit of moisture in a sandwich and texture-wise it is NOT good untoasted--it's sort of rough, dry and scratchy feeling in my mouth. I need lots of water to choke down a PB and J on untoasted Udi's. Rudi's, on the other hand holds together better (although it will still break apart with lots of moisture or if dipped in a sauce) and if lightly warmed or toasted it gets a little soft in the middle like wonder bread. It's completely eddible to me untoasted however too. Rudi's does break too easy when it's still frozen, however. Sometimes I have to take severel pieces out that are stuck together and wait for them to defrost enough before attempting to pull them apart. I currently have a bag of broken slices waiting to be made into croutons or bread crumbs because I broke them in half while trying to get two frozen pieces apart. If I used the brea dmore often I would proabbly store it in my fridge and not have that problem. I wonder if the way you store the bread impacts the texture and hardiness? I know some stores keep Udi's in the freezer and some keep it on the shelf. Perhaps that is why there are so many differing experiences with these gluten-free breads?

I tried a sample of Against the Grain's pizza at Whole Foods several months ago and have never been able to find one in their freezer pizza section since. So good! By far the best gluten-free frozen pizza I have ever eaten.

I just checked out the website - those baguettes look like they should! Too bad we have nothing of the sort in Canada. Seems like we are almost always far behind the U.S. with gluten-free products... :( Hopefully we will see it here soon!

The only one I like is Rudi's cinnamon raisin toasted. Absolutely can barely even eat Betty Crocker's yellow gluten-free cake mix because it tastes so bad. The brownies are great! But, that's not bread. Am looking forward to trying Rudi's multigrain bread very much.

I've never seen the cinnamon raisin bread but that okay because I never really ate cinnamon raisin bread when I could eat gluten. The multi-grain bread is pretty good. BC yellow cake mix is very, very dry. It's only tolerable to me if I add some pumpkin puree and make cucakes with lot so of icing, NOT cake. Pamela's white cake mix is the best I've tried but I don't think I can have that anymore since most of her products have milk in them.

I never ate cinnamon raisin bread pre-gluten-free either :)

I have tried both and prefer Udi's. There is no sugary sweet taste at all unlike Rudi's. Rudi's is excellent for french toast though. It is more of a dessert tasting bread.

Yes, Rudi's here in Northern Virginia. At the Pentagon City Costco, specifically. Frozen. :) I like it a bit better than Udi's because it seems more substantial. However, I only toast it to have with my coffee in the morning. I've never tried it on sandwiches. I've given up on sandwiches and just eat corn tortillas as roll-ups.

And, Against the Grain baguettes are THE BEST! omg... I try not to buy them often because I can eat an entire one at one sitting, with real butter. {drool}

Where do you buy the baguettes? I've never seen them in Indy.

    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)
