Best Place For Udi Bread
0

6 posts in this topic

I have eaten at Jason's Deli lots of times and love their Udi bread deli sandwiches. The bread is so totally different than the stuff you buy at WF. It is bigger, heavier with a wonderful flavor and texture. It is alot like the old fashioned rye bread I ate as a kid.

When I was there over the weekend for my favorite pastrami sandwich, I happened to ask if they sell the breads. They do! The loaf is 30 ounces, whole grain, gluten free, dairy free, soy free and nut free. It is Kosher and parve. It is made special for Jason's and you cannot purchase it from a store. The pieces are huge. They are about 5 1/4 inches by 4 inches. I would say the loaf is double that of the regular Udi bread and the pieces are thick and substantial. I've tried it toasted and plain and both ways are fantastic. Granted, it is more expensive than the 5.00 little wimpy loaf -it is 11.99, but it is the closest thing to bread heaven. I keep it in the freezer and take out the pieces when I want. I won't ever buy the original Udi bread again. I know this is expensive, but it is so delicious.

Too bad that Udi makes this wonderful product only for Jason's. They could corner the market if they had it for sale everywhere. This really is delicious. The slices are uniform, thick and definitely have earned my vote. Yes, 11.99 is alot of money, but darn it, I'm worth it! Try it and you won't ever buy the regular Udi bread.

Buy the way, you can also buy the gluten free deli meat for 8.99 per pound! There is nothing like a hot pastrami sandwich with hot mustard, dill pickle and chips. :wub:

Wow, thanks for sharing that! I had no idea the slices were bigger. I have been meaning to try eating at Jason's Deli but I avoided it because the thought of paying so much for a tiny little sandwhich I can make myself was depressing. I figured the slices were the same size as the store bought Udi's. Now I will have to check out Jason's Deli!

We have zero delis around here (we aren't known for them on the prairies) but man, that sounds delicious! I would be happy to pay $11.99 for bread like that. When I first tried Udi's bread I was quite desperate and liked it, having just been diagnosed, but now it's just meh to me - basically just a vehicle for my toppings. :huh: Cannot wait until our heat wave is over so I can bake some serious bread. :)

So glad you were successful in finding such a treat!

Wow! I live across the street from a Jason's Deli and I've never tried eating there because I figure there is too much gluten in there for it to be safe for me. But maybe I can buy a loaf of bread from them! Cool! Thanks for that tip!

Well I chickened out. We tried to go there about 4 PM yesterday thinking maybe it would not be too busy that early. There was a line out the door however and they had onyl one person on register that looked like she didn't know what she was doing (looked like she was new/being trained). When a guy rushed up front, saw the line, looked frazzled and then ran back to the kitchen yelling that they needed more help up front I decided it was not a good time to wait and see how safe their gluten-free sandwiches are. I felt like a wimp asking my husband to leave but he understood and took me to the grocery store instead. I already had some Rudi's bread at home so we just went and bought lunch meat and veggeis and made out own sandwiches at home. I will still try Jason's Deli sometime however if I can find a day/time to go when they are not super busy. For those that have been there, is this place always super busy like that? I don't mind a small line but the employees looked really stressed out too. It stressed me out too much to want to ask questions about gluten-free bread.

Well, since I'm across the street, I'll answer you. ;)

There are down times, like 2 to 4 when most have already had lunch.

But if there is an event in town...it will be busy all day.

I wish you would of bought a BIG loaf of Udi's bread for your homemade sandwiches! ;)

But I understand completely. I get worried if people are being tained or if the place is rushed too. Please post when you do try Jason's Deli. I know you are super-sensitive and I hope you do alright there.

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
