Schar Ciabatta Rolls

Recommended Posts

I wondered if anyone has seen Schar ciabatta rolls in Safeways or other stores? I am from the UK where they are widely available (marketed as DS rolls). They are par-baked and are superb for sandwiches. Just need reheating for a few minutes.

I have been informed by Schar that they are now available in the USA, but have yet to find them in the Bay Area (Safeway does carry their crackers).

Apparently Genius bread from the UK is also being imported soon.

I wonder--do celiacs here have sandwiches? The only bread I can find is terrible, so I never make sandwiches in the USA. I long for ciabattas . . . please let me know if you see any.

I get them at Jewel in the Midwest which I believe is the same as Albertsons and Super Valu. They are always available at my store as are many Schar products. I do not care for most bread, but I know many people do eat it and enjoy it. I ate gluten fro 25 years of my life and was very much in love with bread and pasta so for me eating gluten-free bread just isn't worth it for me. Maybe I shall have to go over seas to taste some good bread again!

I get them at Roche Bros and at Shaw's market once in a great while in MA. They are relatively good for gluten-free bread, but don't go in remembering classic chewy ciabatta!


2/2010 Malabsorption becomes dramatically noticable

3/2010 Negative IgA EMA; negative IgA TTG

4/2010 Negative biopsy

5/2010 Elimination diet; symptoms begin to resolve on gluten-free diet round two (10 days)

5/2010 Diagnosed gluten sensitive based on weakly positive repeat IgA & IgG TTGs and dietary response; decline capsule endoscopy.

Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?

That is exactly what I was wondering. If they are anything like their regular bread, no thank you, as I find their bread to be lamentable at best. Ciabatta bread is supposed to be chewy so I am afraid my disappointment would outweigh any excitement. I will just continue on my quest in making chewy gluten-free ciabatta (which so far evades me).

We've been getting the Schar Bagettes and the Sub Sandwhich rolls. I've never had any other's. These are, by far, the best gluten-free (and vegan) rolls I've ever had. I had given up hope after trying the Ener-g breads, which are the worst bread products I've ever tasted.

Sorry - this has nothing to do with the topic, but I was just reading this thread and saw your name for the first time on these boards..'Graindamage' - brilliant! Thanks for the giggle. (And sorry to all other posters here for going off topic!)

I have bought them in Safeways in San Francisco, and I am really disappointed.  I lived off of these in the UK (marketed under the DS Brand) but these just don't taste the same--too powdery, funny tang.  Perhaps it's just me--but I have a feeling that they haven't got the recipe right.

check (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned), they have them..

 

Hon, not sure what company name you tried to write there, but if they have spammed the forum in the past (which is not allowed), their name will

not appear when you type it out exactly as it is.

I bought them in my local Stop & Shop (I'm on the east coast) and I do like them. So far so good. MUCH better than their white bread. When I want white bread I but the Udi's (not the frozen one.)
