I personally do not care for any of the FFL breads. I think they are much too heavy and dense. Their brown rice tortillas, however, are fabulous.

Thanks...I'll have to try the tortillas.

Would the rice almond bread be good for grilled cheese for my DD, or does the almond flavor make it more of a breakfast bread?

Thanks again!

The Rice Almond bread is very dense. It is best for open face heated sandwiches like turkey or tuna melts. I have never tried to grill it but I have put just cheese on one piece and microwaved it. I like the taste but is it very different from regular bread.

IMO, Kinnikinnick white sandwich bread would make a good grilled cheese sandwich.

I also love love love the Food For Life Brown Rice Tortillas.

As with most gluten-free bread substitute products you need to toast them or warm them in the oven or microwave. The rice flour and other alternative flours have different properties than wheat and when cold or at room temperature they will seem dry and tough, warming them up remedies this.

The tortillas make great wraps for all kinds of sandwiches and quesadillas, burritos.

I don't mind the FFL gluten-free breads, they are dense like everyone mentioned and have a different taste.

If you are looking for something that is exactly like white wheat bread for your daughter's grilled cheese though, these breads probably aren't it.

I am not a fan of their breads, I have to say. The slices are tiny and really dense, and the texture is off. They're OK in a pinch, but I much prefer kinnikinnick's breads or homemade bread. There's better out there IMO, particularly if you're not used to gluten-free bread. But I do want to try the tortillas! Mission corn tortillas are good, but they're also tiny and fall apart so they're not great for wraps.


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.
