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!

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
