Finally! Delicious gluten-free Bread!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I miss Wonder Bread. That is why I am so happy to have found Udi's gluten-free white sandwich bread. It's just like the stuff I used to eat in t'he old days. It's soft and delicious! I had Whole Footds order it for me, but some stores carry it all the time. And you can order online!

I just had a peanut butter sandwich and I am in heaven!

You can't order this on-line, though?

I guess not :o A friend told me some Safeways and King Scooper stores carry it. I would call your local grocer and ask them to order it. That's what my Whole Foods did, but I think some Whole Foods carry it :o .

I just read on a bmog that they will send online orders. Email them at info@udisfood.com

Just have to chime in - I buy the Udi's gluten free whole grain bread.

It is the closest thing to "real" bread that I've found thus far. It's light, airy, good texture (not heavy and gummy like many gluten-free breads can be). I am a big Udi's fan.

I get it in the gluten-free Frozen section at my King Soopers, but nearby Vitamin Cottage Natural Grocers also carries it (in freezer as well).

I talked to the ordering person at Whole Foods Market this am, and they will be carrying Udi's products nationwide soon- she said it could be a few weeks or a few months, but they are working on it!

I called Udi's in Denver, they're not in the Southeast yet. I called my local Whole Foods and they don't carry it yet. Udi's said they are working on a site as we speak so we can order online, but right now their gluten-free line is not set up for online ordering. You can order over the phone by calling 303-657-6366. They do have a very hefty shipping fee because it's frozen and has to go out Fed-Ex. I was told we can order the bread by the case to make one order count.

I sure hope they come to the Southeast soon. The shipping fee is an owie!! :o

If you live in the Bay Area, CA.....

Draeger's carries Udi's. I just brought home the lemon streusel muffins yesterday. YUMMY! SUPER DUPER YUMMY! My daughter and & ate all 4 already. Darn.

One interesting thing I noted is that they contain sunflower lecithin. That's the first time I've seen that. Seems it's always soy lecithin. I'm thrilled since I can't tolerate the soy lecithin. Yeah! :P

I really love the Udi's white bread as well. The best part about it....it does not have to be kept frozen. I keep mine in my pantry and don't have to toast it before eating. Love it!!! B)

I almost ordered Udi's a few weeks ago because someone mentioned in another thread how soft and great it was. I was really excited to try it. So, I called their place in Denver and asked a few questions........I think I may have gotten an inexperienced employee, but she couldn't tell me whether or not the bread was dairy free. Also, when they answered the phone it was something like "Udi's granola and bakery". When I said I wanted to inquire about some ingredients in their products she asked "regular or gluten free". This lead me to "oh, so you are NOT a dedicated gluten-free facility?" I was informed that the granola facility, which produces a gluten product, is in a separate location from the bakery, BUT the bakery is also NOT completely gluten free. This just made me nervous and I never called back to ask about the dairy or order from the "person who handled the gluten free". Also, don't expect to get any in a hurry; on a Tuesday I found out that they ONLY ship orders out on Mondays and even if you place your order on a Monday it won't ship until the following Monday.

I was just wondering if any really sensitive to gluten-types have tried these products, and if so did you react? I would really like to try it but am just nervous. And if I can ask, how much was the shipping fee? This almost seems like a ploy to me to have you order a whole case. I'm probably just dwelling on my bad impression though.

I really love the Udi's bread, we get from our local gluten-free store! Yum! It's worth trying to get, and my "glutenoid" wife and kids think it's just like real gluten bread, so I have to lock it up. The price tag is a dead giveaway though... It's never given me symptoms, just the wallet hurts, when everybody eats MY bread! :)

I'm pretty sensitive. Half the time I eat at our favorite places with "gluten free" menu, I have symptoms which include bloating, belching, & vomitting, so I don't order very often when I do go out with my family. Symptoms occur within 10-15 min after ingestion, and lasts up to 2 days (just for minor CC--it's much worse when I actually mess up). I have to make my 3 yr old wash her hands after eating (even just a cookie), as she sometimes sticks her finger into my mouth when I'm not looking--that get's me sick like clockwork. :angry: I also have to use a paper towel to touch the fridge door when grabbing ice for my soda.

You know, I think it's time for a grilled cheese sandwich! It's nice to have the option. :D

They only ship by Fed-Ex because they said it needs to be frozen. The shipping fee is $25.00 for a case about $30.00.

I get sick from Udi's gluten free bread every time. Unfortunately I have eaten dozens of loaves because it is so good. I had to go cold turkey about a month ago as I was getting a low grade glutening every day. Since I went cold turkey only once or twice a reaction. One associated with a box of Van's waffles. The other I think was cc in my kitchen.

Udi's does produce "regular" baked goods, however, they have a completely separate gluten free facility for the gluten free items.

Here's a clip from a write up on them, and a link to their website w/gluten-free info:

"They recently started to produce gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and nut free products in a dedicated gluten free bakery. I sampled the Whole Grain Bread which was amazing! In addition to the Whole Grain Bread they also make:

*Lemon Streusel Muffins

*Blueberry Muffins

*White Sandwich Bread

*Pizza Crusts

Udi's Gluten Free Foods are currently available in Colorado, Texas, Minnesota, Utah, Kansas, and New Mexico at grocery chains such as Whole Foods, King Soopers, Vitamin Cottage, Kowalski's Markets, Lund's & Byerly's, United Supermarkets, and Central Market. "

This thread is one of the reasons I love this site! I would not try this bread if it was not for your posting. I'm going hunting for it this week.

I called back today and spoke to someone who seemed more knowledgable and she told me that indeed it IS a dedicated gluten-free bakery where the bread is made. It also is dairy free, so I ordered some; excited to try it!
