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.

    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
