Recommended Posts

I am very frustrated with the poor breads on the market at health food stores. OH, you can freeze it, then fix it and watch it crumble into a lousy mess not worth eating, or you can butter the hard ones, which is a pain, and produces still a poor quality bread for eating. The problem is, I don't cook, don't have time to cook and hate cooking. I need a breat available that has better texture and is readily available already on the shelves. So for I've found none. You mean I now have to buy a bread machine and bake this stuff? I don't have time for that, and am half dead when I come home from work. Do any of you know of sortbody that makes a softer texture more palatable bread without toasting, butter, etc to make it half-way edible for sandwiches? Thanks if you know a souce.

Some specialty breads are downright crappy..the dog won't even eat them. I have found some good breads though.

1.Cybros Rice Rolls...they are sweetened with honey and have a good taste to them...I go through these very quick

2. Kinnikinnick-they have donuts, muffins, breads, etc

i also like Kinnikinnick's bread. but if you are looking for soft texture, and want it that badly, you will probably have to make it. i think the "softest" gluten-free bread is manna from anna. it is a mix, but not hard to make. ck it out here: http://www.glutenevolution.com/products.html

Prairie bread from whole foods. It's brand new! Has seeds on top. It has some texture so I think you can make a sandwich out of it better than most.

Whole Foods Has a huge bakery that is dedicated to gluten free stuff. they just opened so they can service all their stores. I believe it is through their flagship stores in Texas. (someone correct me if I am wrong) anyway if you don't have one in your area you could probably call and order......

I have found the best bread ever...I mean it tastes like bread and it looks like bread!!! It is Ezekiel 4:9 bread it comes frozen and is cinn raisin...I love it for breakfast and snacks. It is live germ so I don't know if you can handle it but it doesn't bother me at all. I used to get sick from even smelling gluten it seems but this bread is fantastic. I don't know where you would find it we get it from a food coop here. The only kind they make gluten free is the cinn raisin too. The package also says 100% FLOUR FREE! that is why I tryed it. I hope this helps the company that makes it is "food for life" check it out.

hope it works,

I very strongly recommend the Whole Foods bread (they have a "gluten-free bakery" and they ship the goods to usually one rack in the store). They also have other terrific baked goods; pies (I've been saving an apple pie in the freezer for Thanksgiving, but they also have cherry, blueberry, etc.), other types of breads, cookies, etc.).

You have been glutening yourself. Ezekiel 4:9 bread is not gluten free. Go to this site and you will see food for life's gluten free products http://www.food-for-life.com/index.asp

If you go to this site you will see Ezekiel 4:9's ingredients which includes wheat, barley, and spelt. Always check the labels. http://www.mybloodsugar.net/foodforlife.htm

Flourless does not mean gluten free.

I think I'd have to disagree with this. The first ingredient on this bread is sprouted wheat. They might not used "flour" as they are using "sprouted wheat", but that does NOT mean it's gluten-free. Flourless and gluten-free can mean two different things!!!

Many will disagree but for a pasty white bread substitute we like Ener-G. When microwaved either instead of or before toasting it comes out like the Wonder Bread kids used to eat. It doesn't fall apart and has a texture when zapped like 'regular' bread. Many think it has no taste, but pasty white bread doesn't either so you might like it. Just don't forget to zap it, it is par-baked and awful if you don't.

My local grocery store sells Food For Life Rice Pecan Bread in the frozen food section near the waffles. If you wrap a couple of slices in a paper towel and microwave them for about 30-40 seconds, you get nice soft bread. It has a little sweetness in it from fruit juice. It is very good with gluten-free peanut butter (Jif, Peter Pan, etc...) and gluten-free jelly (Welch's Grape Jelly, Smuckers, etc...)

It also makes good french toast. I just put on a little cinnamon or applesauce as a topping. A real treat. :P

I use Whole Foods for sandwiches, but Ener-G tapioca loaf for situations where a somewhat sweet (?) bread wouldn't be suitable. Ener-G for a hotdog "roll"..., etc.

To Goliadman:

I know exactly how you feel! It took me so long to find anything even close that could ever replace the regular "tasty", yet EVIL bread "we all used to be able to eat on this site!". In fact I'm like you, still looking. <_<

It was soooooooo frustrating in the beginning, and still is frustrating now, because I feel, it's still so hard to find anything that comes close to tasting half way decent, and even having the normal texture and consistancy as real bread does.

I'm really new to this Gluten Free diet as well! The trick is to keep looking! And, not give up! I'm going to try the kinnickinnick site, and taste their breads to see if I like the taste of their breads any better. I don't have a bread machine, we cannot afford one right now, and to tell you the truth I'd have no idea how to use it, if I had one.

However I know there are many mixes out there in which you can use a small loaf pan and a gluten free bread mix and bake it in the oven, I think it takes about 30 minutes, so you don't necessarily need a bread machine to try these mixes.

My husband is really sweet, and he is eager to try different mixes for me, because he has tasted many of the breads that are available for people who can't eat gluten, and thinks they are terrible as well, and wants to try to make a bread that I like better. So we're going to experiment with baking some in our oven first, before even thinking of taking on the expense of buying a bread machine.

Just keep looking, and don't give up!

That's what I'm doing, I haven't found a good sandwich bread yet, but I really just got started looking for one.

If you like sweet dessert breads like Banana Nut Bread Whole foods has a wonderful one by the Gluten Free Pantry. Don't give up, it's incredibly frustrating at first, I know, but just don't give up.

I really like Kinnickinick's breads... Just pop in the microwave or toaster and voila nice soft bread... also, Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakehouse line is good too, again, toaster or microwave is mandatory, but worth it. I've also used Ener-G's sandwich bread (YUCK) and Food For Life's Brown Rice Bread... those two work ok in recipes like in my cornbread stuffing recipe, but horrible for sandwiches IMHO.

What I really wish someone would make is a nice shelf stable bread that is soft and holds together and tastes great WITHOUT having to toast it or microwave it. I'm guessing I'm asking for the impossible.

I know you said that you don't bake, but I just thought I'd throw this out anyway. There is a mix called Chebe Bread that is very good. If you ever have a few extra minutes on the weekends, it's totally worth it. The mix requires no skill, just throw the ingredients together and bake (I don't bake either, but I make Chebe all the time). You can make rolls, breadsticks, or pizza with it and it turns out chewy and delicious. Even my husband asks for it.

I actually use Ener-G's tapioca light bread and Food For Life's Brown Rice Bread. They're not too bad, but you need to toast them before eating. I like putting butter&jelly on it. Hey beggers cant be choosy:) :rolleyes:
