Glutino Bagels - Great!

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else bought Glutino Bagels? They are unbelievably like the real thing! (And I know bagels! I lived about 5 blocks from a bagel bakery and almost every Saturday Night at about 1 A.M. we'd buy them right out of the oven and then we went to an appetizing store for fresh lox and creamcheese!)

But it's important not to defrost these before baking - they don't come out right if you do.

We love Glutino bagels in our house!! We eat them at least twice a week. This may sound silly, but how do you pop them in the toaster without defrosting them firs. I usually put them in the microwave for a minute then slice and toast. Is there a better way? I would love to know!

The cinnamon-raisin bread is to die for as well. It makes the best toast, something I've missed terribly. I stood in the frozen food section for about 20 minutes trying to decide if I wanted to spend that much money on a loaf of bread I figured I was most likely going to pitch but what a nice suprise. I have found Glutino products to be really good for the most part.

We eat Glutino for almost all our gluten-free alternatives. (this includes bread, pasta and crackers). We prefer the "corn bread" which is not corn at all but white sandwich bread made with corn starch not corn meal. When toasted it has the taste and texture of sourdough. It is also lighter than the other breads we tried. The pasta tastes fine also (we prefer the spirals). Just tried some crackers made with a bean flour and they had the taste and crunch of traditional crackers. I have tried the bagels also. About a week ago the bread and crackers were on sale for $1.99 each at the local health food store. We should have bought more.

I didn't care for the glutino bagels, but maybe it's b/c I defrosted them first - I still have a few in my freezer so I'll have to try them your way :)

Anyone tried Trader Joe's gluten-free bagels in the fresh bread section? We just got a TJs and they have gluten-free bagels and bread that is NOT frozen - I couldn't believe it! Just wondering if they are worth getting.

I saw the cinnamon-raisin bread and did exactly what you did! But I didn't buy it - I bought the bages instead.

Is the bread ok if you don't toast it? I really want a bread that doesn't need toasting but that tastes real.

Where do you buy Glutino Bagels?

You can buy them online at www.shopbydiet.com. They also have TONS of other gluten free products. Free shipping over $100. they have weekly sales too. I think Tinkyada pasta is on sale right now.

my local health food store has both the American and English Glutino bagels. the US version has dairy and the UK version is dairy free. the US bagel is aslo bigger and in my opinion tastes better. my brother who is also dairy intolerant eats the UK version all the time.
