Best Gluten Free Bread

Recommended Posts

Guest Addicted2Gluten

I've tried a few different brands of gluten free bread and none of them have been worth eating. The only breads that were good were those that were freshly made at gluten free restaurants. Does anyone know any good gluten free bread that tastes very close to real bread?

I've tried Ener-G bread, Glutino bread, and whatever that bread is that is sweetened with fruit juice. I didn't like any of them.

Foods by George has some awesome english muffins in plain and cinnamon. I toast them first because otherwise they fall apart. I usually add strawberry cream cheese to it.

Cybros has awesome rolls

Kinnikinnick has donuts, breads, etc that are good too

Hope this helps :D

What you might want to try which I have found worked really well for me, it to toast the bread. Anytime I eat bread with anything I have to toast it or else I wont eat it because I dont really like it either. But I buy the Ener-G and I think that it tastes fine.....as long as it is toasted.

Good Luck! :D

I like Ener-G the best...the tapioca loaf. Then the Kinniknick....but I don't think there really is a good store-bought gluten-free bread. And it's difficult to make homemade gluten-free bread. All gluten-free bread can be made.....more edible :P .......through toasting.

I think that Kinnikinnik's Itilian bread is good not toasted too....I make sandwiches out of it and am real happy with them. It is good to finally find a bread that you don't have to toast to use it. I ordered the first time from them online and then asked my health food store to order it for me and they did. I will bet that their large customer base of celiac patients will be glad for it as the bread they were handling wasn't as good as Kinnikinnik's.

I've given up on bread for the most part. Other than the whole foods pizza crusts which I turn into pita pockets and only have them on rare occasion. I roll sandwich meat with a piece of cheese and consider it a "sandwich" anymore. Sometimes I still miss bread, but for the most part I've gotten used to not having it.

I am one of the non bread people also. I do the lunch meat roll-ups like callico jo mentioned. I use frito scoops for meat salad (chopped roast beef, mayo, pickles). I don't see the point in wasting the calories on something that is not that good. I make poori bread when I have spaghetti and that is really good.

There is one really good bread mix that I do like, but I only make it every once in a while (little expensive to order) . I just like it because it toasts. I make garlic bread and grilled cheese with it when I get the craving. It's called Manna from Anna.

Homemade gluten-free bread is not difficult if you have a bread machine. You just put the ingredients in and turn it on. I have not found a decent store bought bread and I think I know the reason...The gluten-free breads do not have a long shelf life because they dry out and become crumbly within a couple of days. It would take longer than that to get them to the store. I bake a fresh loaf every 2 or 3 days because of this. The bread mixes out there tend to be prohibitively expensive for me. If you have a particular gluten-free mix you like, however, there is a machine recipe out there for it. While the bean based ones make the softest textured bread, I cannot handle the stonger taste. I generally use a brown rice mix and replace a 1/4 cup of the rice flour with bean flour for texture. Check out some of the bread machine posts or my post on milling your own grains.

I agree that the Gluten Free Pantry's Favorite Sandwich Bread is great. The mix is pricey (a bit over $5 here in FL) though but it is really good. It is the first one my girls would actually eat (they are sooooooo critical). Alot of locals in our gluten-free support group have awesome success with breadmakers (we haven't gone down that road yet so I can't talk from experience).

I eat Kinnikinick Italian bread, Glutino Corn bread, and Sterk's Italian white, and Sandwich bread. They all are excellent toasted! I make lots toasted sandwich's! I find that the bread is really dry if it isn't toasted.

I vote for Kinnikinnick, they have a sunflower seed bread that is excellent, and as stated above I always toast it, also makes excellent grilled cheeses!

Their donuts are pretty good too... :D

My mother-in-law bakes the best gluten-free bread I've been telling her for ages to find a way to market it. She's showed me how to bake it but I can't for the life of me remember the recipe, etc right now (She does it so well and so often I don't usually bother) but I will check with her. I will not buy any more bread because it simply is not good. I recommend you give the baking a go and stash some in the freezer for later use.

I also like Kinnikinnick Sandwich White. I'd like to add that in the past two months I have been buying puppodons, an indian cracker, and now like it better than bread. They look like a large communion wafer and usually consist of bean flour, lentil flour, or other combination, and are gluten free. I just pop it in the microwave for between 40-60 seconds, depending on the mic, and it puffs up. Then I just add my filling. Sometimes sauce and cheese, chicken salad, ham and cheese, etc. Four puppodons are around 100 calories, 0 fat, 3-4 grams of fiber. They are also good plain just as a snack.
