That's so interesting.  I saw it at the store, but didn't get it.  I've had issues with modified tapioca starch in the past.   I've eaten the regular white sandwich bread with no issues.  It has Tapioca Starch, but not modified.  I'm not sure what the difference is or why it would bother me.  I will be interested to see if anyone else has an issue.

I have issues with it also. In my case it is the addition of the sorghum. I should have read the label. My bad. Unfortunately all the breads I looked at as an alternative have either that or soy flour. Not sure what I am going to do for my daily PB&Js now.

That's a bummer.  I have 1 loaf of the old version left.  I'll have to see if Target has any in their freezer.  I use it daily for my toast with sunbutter.

I am pretty sure Udi's has discontinued the old one. It was called Whole Grain, the new is called Multigrain. I can't eat any gluten-free flours b/c of oat cc but my hubs just got the new Udi's Multigrain on Saturday. So far, so good with him.

For myself, I make these:

I use full fat yogurt otherwise they are pretty dry. I make them in muffin top pans.

I was using the white sandwich bread.  I will be checking to see if it's still available.

They still have the white on their website. It's the whole grain that is no longer on the website.

Ohhhhhhh, so sorry. I didn't look at the ingredients on that one. So they have changed the white bread as well huh? Bummer!

I know the new Multigrain is harder to get the slices separated without breaking them. I think part of the problem is the slices are not as thick.

Sidenote: if anyone's looking to avoid oat CC, Glutenull does not use oats in any of their products (breads, cookies, granolas/trail mix). I am sensitive to oat CC, and this is the only company whose products seem not to bother me. I really like their breads, but they are quite dense which may be off-putting to some (gluten-eating-me liked dense breads too).

It's a smaller company, and mostly only available in Canadian stores (unless you order online?). They don't use preservatives in their stuff, so you have to eat it fast (or freeze it)!

I wonder if Udi's knows how many customers they are losing. I have been a loyal Udi's consumer for years and now have to search for a replacement.  I wonder if a bigger company has bought them out? That happened with a favorite lotion and soap I loved.  There is an old saying 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' I wish companies would think of that with our prodcts and not 'gee I wonder how we can make this cheaper'.  Rant over.....

Udis was was bought  by Smart Balance over five Years ago.

gluten-free sorghum is not a cheap ingredient.  Not sure why they changed it, but they had  a lot of problems with the white bread having big air pockets.  Might  have just wanted to make a " healthier" bread  with more  whole grains?

Thanks for that info. I checked & there's no way for me to get it down here in FL, USA

Bad news for me.  I checked both of the stores that normally have the original Udi's in the freezer and nothing.  Just the new bread. :(

Out of curiosity I did the same at 2 whole foods and a natural grocers down here, only the new one....side note I found the only store bought bread I can stomach in stock. They actually carry Julian Bakery Paleo Bread now...starch free, gum free....I was tempted to get one of the almond ones again since I can make the coconut one in my own bakery.

That's too bad... I try not to rely on pre-made stuff as it's expensive, but as I am sure you're well aware it is super inconvenient to have to make all your stuff from scratch, especially when traveling/without a kitchen. Yayyyy rice grits<_<.

Although I have some doubts about the absolute safety of avenin based on my readings the current scientific literature, it's pretty indisputable that the gluten-free food industry has let down celiacs who have obvious reactions/immediate to it. IMHO allowing oats was a mistake, and the previous situation (allowing oats to be labelled as "wheat free") was better for everyone. Yes, this limits processed foods a bit, but celiacs who tolerate oats could still buy wheat free oats for use in oatmeal, baked goods, granola etc. I don't exactly think this is a hardship, considering that pre-celiac diagnosis I only ever bought plain bags of oats, despite being on a completely unrestricted diet ;).

Sorry for tangent! Resume discussion of Udi's lol.
