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!

    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
