I Just Tasted Udi's Bread!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am the all time biggest complainer, PIA, bad mouthing, miserable person when it comes to describing just how terrible gluten-free baked goods are. I am the princess and the pea of gluten-free complainers. I have tried numerous scratch recipes, mixes and ready-to-eat gluten-free baked goods that other celiacs describe as wonderful and so good that non-celiacs can't taste the difference, and I have always been an Eeyore. No matter what I tried, I could always taste and FEEL the difference. I have been totally miserable since I first tasted gluten-free bread (nER-G) last August because I couldn't find anything that I found acceptable. I have read so many posts about how good Udi's bread is that I became determined to taste it for myself. Udi's bakery is in Colorado. A single loaf purchased online is very expensive. Worse still, the cost of shipping one loaf to me in the Syracuse area of NY would have been over $20! I had to find a way to get a loaf so I could test it.

I couldn't find any distributor anywhere near me so I asked Sally, in Nature Tyme in Syracuse if she would consider carrying it. She had never heard of it but when I told her everyone was raving about how good it is, she said she would see if she could find a distributor. She did, and she had a free sample loaf shipped to her store. She called me today and said the loaf had arrived and I could have it for free. It takes me the better part of an hour to get to Syracuse but I left immediately. On the way home I planned how I would eat the first piece, once it was gently defrosted. The first couple slices were almost defrosted by the time I got home so I zapped a slice very gently in the microwave. I brewed a fresh cup of Green Mountain Hazelnut Coffee and spread cold butter on the bread. Wow! It was pretty good! I had a second slice with peanut butter and butter and I now declare Udi's white sandwich bread almost as good as gluten-free bread. I can eat this forever and stop feeling sorry for myself. I would actually serve it to company.

I have to call Sally and tell her I definitely will buy this bread regularly and I will tell the Syracuse support group that they can find it at Nature Tyme. I have no idea how much Sally will sell this bread for but I will be asking her to order me six loaves at a time. I have to make certain I never run out because no other gluten-free bread will satisfy me after eating Udi's.

Gee, it feels good to write and say I LIKED something. This bread, and Bob's Red Mill chocolate cake mix will always be in my house.

Welcome to the Udi's Lovers Club. I never have even liked bread, even before going gluten free. So for me to eat a piece of bread says a lot. I love Udi's, white or whole grain. I can eat it with just butter and not even warmed.

Is this store the one on Bridge street? I'd like to send an email to them saying thanks for taking such an interest in their customers with Celiac.

Ahoresoul,

The store is on Bridge Street. If a demand for the bread develops maybe Sally will carry some of the other good Udi's stuff mentioned here.

I was wondering how you made your pizza with those crusts because mine did not turn out. The first time I just followed the directions and my crust burnt at the edges, even after baking at the lowest end of the time range, and it was very thin to begin with so it turned out crunchy/crispy. The second time I tried cooking for even less time and it turned out too soft in the middle but crunchy on the edges. Maybe I should lower the temp and cook longer? Did yours turn out perfectly soft yet done throughout?

BTW the muffins are great!

Last Thursday I asked my locoal Apple Crate if they could carry this bread. She said she was VERY interested in carrying a new item and that if the bread is THAT good then she will definitely contact them and see about shipping and stuff to NC.

BTW I mentioned how popular it is on this forum and she said, "If it's the talk of the forum, I would VERY much like to get some of this Udi bread!"

Udi's is made here in Denver. Try their Lemon Streusel and/or Blueberry Muffins.

They aren't "dense", but sure taste good!

Something for you all to look forward to.

The head baker at Udi's is interested in making GOOD TASTING products that are gluten-free; not simply gluten-free products that will sell.

Others can learn from this. In fact, I think they're changing their identity to be known more as a gluten-free bakery (until now they've been known here as the "granola" company. Tasty but not gluten-free).

I just got my first loaf of Udi's bread a few days ago. I spread my first piece with butter and bit in. My husband found me crying in the kitchen. I had given up ever tasting anything like bread again.

Thanksgiving night I had a glorious turkey sandwhich. Life is good!!!

I asked Atlanta Whole Foods and Return to Eden a few weeks back and neither one had heard of it.

I guess the gluten free expert at Return to Eden got asked enough and it showed up right before Thanksgiving. The store has a good selection of gluten-free foods. Sad to say most of these foods do not go on sale, but Pamela's cookies are on sale.

I love the white bread and BB Muffins and will try others. The markup is pretty high making it quite expensive. Worth it as a treat. I had real cheese toast with ham.

I successfully got Mother's Market in Huntington Beach to carry Udi's. I had to nag every time I went in, but they have the whole Udi's line now and it is flying off the shelves. Even better, it's only $4.69 per loaf! (who would have thought I would be excited to pay "only" $4.69?) :lol:

Someone posted that Udi's is making tortillas :D Anyone have confirmation?

They just started carrying Udi's last month at my local Hy-Vee (the only place I can get it here!!), so I totally understand where you are coming from. Before that, I had completely given up on sandwiches. When I wanted a sandwich, I went and bought corn tortilla shells and put my ham and cheese on those. I happened to stop into the freezer section of the health food part of Hy-Vee a month or so ago and there it was...Udi's! I'd heard so much about it on here that I HAD to try it. I have gone through a loaf a week since then! I always make sure I have one ready in my freezer!! It's so good my boyfriend actually prefers it to his normal gluten-filled bread!! I love that it doesn't just melt away in your mouth and it is actually fairly substantial! Now I can have grilled cheese again and really enjoy it!! :o)

This bread is so fantastic tasting, but Ive noticed it makes me a little gassy? Anyone else? Ive only had the whole grain kind. It has teff flour in it...maybe thats it. I heard they have a white bread. Maybe I should try that? What do you guys think? Im obscessed with this bread it is the best Gluten-Free bread I have ever had!!

I fell in love with the white first, and then I tried the whole grain. Both are great, as far as I am concerned. I tried the blueberry muffins. I found them a little too sweet but the texture was good. I have some pizza crust in the freezer but haven't tried it because I am currently on a 6 week gluten challenge. I am curious that other companies continue to turn out really nasty bread and mixes when Udi's is so much more superior. Can't other companies figure out how to make decent bread? I wish Udi's would offer bread mixes because the cost of shipping frozen loaves makes their bread fairly expensive. However, if I have to go back to a gluten-free diet Udi's will be the only bread I wil consider eating.

Oh yea, obsessed it a great description for how I feel about Udi bread. I have 2 slices left in the refrig and one loaf in the freezer. I'm getting nervous being so low on Udi bread.

I like both the white and whole grain. Which ever one I have in my hand in my favorite.

    Sounds awful. My hit me a few days later this time. But I still feel the same three weeks later. Well, a little bit better as my headaches have worn off but I am still so dizzy and have numbness and tingling. It's so hard to concentrate. I feel horrendous but have been to the docs and hosp numerous times and they can't do anything.
    I sorta bump into walls a lot more, misjudge distances and hit my shoulder on door frames in a sort of totter fashion, catch myself almost falling sometimes on stairs, drop stuff, find I lose heat and cold sensitivity and often burn myself, or cut myself. These stick around for a while and slowly taper off. My ataxia normally hits hard the first day within hours of consuming the offending food I can lose full motor control and end up on the floor.
Thank you so much for your response. Do you get dizzy, well it's not dizzy, it's weird feeling where you feel like you are walking in space. And my skin just feels different, all nervy and more sensitive but not, like I can't feel as much.
