Sami's Bakery Products

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My husb has been eating Sami's Bakery poducts and really enjoys them. For the 1st time since going gluten-free, he enjoys a sandwich again. He eats the Millet & Flax bread, wraps, Hamburger and Hot dog rolls and he really loves the Pizza crust. The store cant keep these products in stock, as soon as they are delivered, the shelves are empty!

Our problem is that we recd an email last week from the CELIAC@LISTSERV.ICORS.ORG stating that these products were not gluten-free. The email was old, Feb 2007, so I dont know why it resurfased, but we are now confused. has any testing been done since 2-07 on these products?

The product labels do not state that the products are gluten-free, but all of the ingredients listed are gluten-free. So even without a gluten-free label- the ingredients indicate it to be a gluten-free product.

The listed ingredients for the Millet and Flax bread are:

Organic Millet Flour, Brown Rice Flour, Water, Aluminum Free Baking Powder, Sea Salt, Organic Grounded Flax Seed .

If you saw this, would you buy it thnking it to be a safe gluten-free product?

I need to know if anyone on the board has any information on Sami's Bakery products? My husband feels fine eating them. We would hate to give up using a product that we enjoy if it's not necessary to do so.

Plus, the cost for these products are much more reasonable, 3.99 a loaf of bread instead of $7 or $8.

I'd appreciate any guidance you can offer.

I haven't had a reaction to it-in the 1 month I've been gluten-free. I am disappointed that it has been deceptively promoted as gluten-free. There should be regulated guidelines where health issues are concerned.

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
