Is Udi's Bread Always Frozen?

Recommended Posts

I have just bought my first loaf of Udi's bread here in San Francisco. I haven't tasted it yet--put it straight in the freezer. Most of the bread I see is frozen in the stores. Is this always the case with Udi's bread? Do people buy it frozen and then just defrost it for sandwiches?

At Mothers Market in Orange County, some of the stores put it on the shelf with the regular bread. Not even refrigerated! I leave mine in the fridge after taking it out of the freezer.


Gluten free is not so bad! If you are new, hang it there, it gets easier!

At the Whole Foods I go to, it's on a shelf along with the other Udi's baked goods--not in the freezer. :)

I get my UDI's loaves at Whole Foods and it's on the shelf, not frozen! And I leave mine right on the counter...the loaf has been there over a week before and nothing has happened to it, tastes good still!


Thanks!!!

Yep, UDI's at my Whole Foods is on the shelf, but in a separate gluten-free section. I freeze mine as soon as I get home and just pull out slices as I need them. I love Udi's bread and pizza crust!!

I'm lucky and can drive to Udi's and get a loaf that is not frozen, but at grocery stores it is always frozen. We keep a loaf in our kitchen, undefrosted and it keeps well for about a week (we've never had a loaf go uneaten that long anyway). It's the only gluten-free bread I've found that is truly edible and tasty straight out of the package.

I've been buying Udi bread fresh from Whole Foods but I recently found another bread that I love even more. Unfortunately I can't get it around the Dallas area so I have to order it online. The Katz Gluten Free bread/bakery line is excellent. The Challah has a sweet nuttiness and the slices are moist and fluffy. It doesn't break or crumble. I started off toasting it and tried it without toasting and was hooked. I've used it for sandwiches with the Daiya no dairy cheddar cheese shreds for grilled cheese sandwiches and with homemade chicken salad sandwiches - very yummy. Their buns and baked goods are delicious. This product really is even better than Udi... just not as convenient to buy.

Agreed - Katz is awesome! Their mini challahs and their cinnamon rugelich are so good!

I like Udi's a lot, too. I bought mine at Woodman's and it was in the frozen section next to Katz and Kinnikinick.

Well, I can only get it frozen in San Francisco . . . but I ain't complaining--this stuff is amazing. I can actually make decent sandwiches. Great stuff!

Hi, I, too am an Udi's fan, and live in the Bay Area. Where do you buy Udi's? I've found it at Whole Foods in San Mateo, and at Good Health in the Oceana Market in Pacifica. It's so good to have real sandwiches again...


Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.

Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.

Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)

Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

I too can only find it frozen where I am at. THe first time I bought it I was so excited based on the reviews here. The first loaf was really good. I ate it out of the package and it made a heck of a grilled cheese. I went back and bought four more loves and I have one left in the freezer. Maybe I'ts just me or I got my bread fix out of my system, but the two loaves I have had since have not been very good except for grilled cheese. The bread has been really, really really, (O.K. I guess you get the point) dry. Noone seems to like it now. I don't think I will spend the money to buy it anymore because these loaves have been a disappointment. I guess it was good while it lasted.
