I guess I'm not like a lot of people. I never liked the "Wonderbread" types of bread. I used to buy French bread or Italian bread because I like a crusty bread with texture. That's why I love Udi's multi-grain bread.

But if you like that soft stuff, try Kinikinik (sp). Everyone says that is more like traditional store-bought bread. I have had their hamburger buns and they are soft and white as Wonderbread. Although they are too thick, you could always take a slice out of the middle to save for toasting later.

Have you tried Udi's or Canyon Bakehouse?

If you have and didn't like them, wait some time and try again. When I first went gluten-free I wasn't that impressed with Udi's considering the price, so we made bread for a few months. I tried Udi's again at closer to a year and I loved it - guess my taste/perspective on the cost changed a bit during that time. We love Canyon Bakehouse, but didn't have access to it until more recently. Udi's remains a staple because it is less expensive and easier to find.

Do you like baking? Some of us make our own bread. If you don't, try Kinnickinnik if you can find it. Their new soft bread is as large as regular bread (not Barbie sized) and it seriously does stay soft and does not need to be toasted. Before that my favourite commercial brand was Glutino Genius. And before that it was Udi's. :)

I like Rudi's cinnamon raisin in the frozen section of your health food store. I even use the cinnamon raisin to make regular sandwiches on, toasted.

I think they have some online coupons out now. You can print off 2 for $1.00 off.

I really love the Schar baguettes. You crisp them up in the oven before eating, and they taste JUST like regular French baguettes. The problem is they're hard to find and expensive (about $7 for two small baguettes). WalMart often carries their regular soft rolls, but I don't like those nearly as much.

The baguettes ARE good. I can even get them at the DM in Croatia! We don't have any Schar products whatsoever where I live in Canada so when we go to Europe I try out as many as I can. :) Just another six itty bitty weeks! :D

Another vote for Udi's multigrain. I take 2 slices out in the a.m. and by lunchtime at work it is thawed. No toasting needed.

I second (third? Fourth?) the vote for Udi's bread. It's the closest to "regular" bread we've found. Also really love the Bella baking mixes - we do the multi-grain. I know it isn't white, but I'm not gluten free (my son is) and I still love this bread. There's a roll recipe included in the recipe, and even though there are a few steps to it it isn't at all difficult.

Does anyone have a good bread recipe ? I used to get the Kinnikinnick sunflower & flaxseed mix & make it - it was nice & fluffy ! They discontinued it.

I have bought Glutino's french breadmix and it's pretty good but very white !

I use a mix called "Favorite Sandwich Bread". It's pretty good, I mix it in my bread machine but cook it in the oven. Sometimes I'll cook it in my Whoopie pie pan for hamburger buns!

I've been a fan of Pamela'.s gluten free bread mix. I've purchased it in individual bags, in bulk packages of about 4 lbs., and finally in their 25-pound bag thru that big river in So. America store that we may or may not be allowed to mention. It's a good bread mix... only requiring a little oil, eggs, water, and yeast. I make a loaf a week... mostly in a bread loaf but sometimes in roll shapes.

A new company named Goodbye Gluten just sent our support group some samples. They are going to give Udi's and Rudi's a run for their money in my opinion. It is the closest thing to gluten bread I've found. Very soft and great texture. Great for sandwiches straight from the bag. Can't wait till it hits our grocery shelves!

Simona's Challah bread (search for recipe here) is one of the best I've made. In fact, I plan to make it again tomorrow. It is the closest to the real thing I have come across. You actually roll it out and form it!

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
