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.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
