Went to my local walmart today and saw that they had rudi's bread. All is well and good and i checked the back out of habit and saw "organic wheat gluten". :blink:

I take it they have two lines or something?

Yes. They make an organic bread and a gluten free bread. If I remember correctly, I read that it is made in separate facilities (could be remembering wrong though). Anyway my daughters and I did not have a problem with the gluten free one, the store just stopped carrying it though:(

I have also tried Rudi's. Seems to upset me also. I tried a regular loaf of Rudi's Gluten Free bread and also the cinnamon raisin. Neither seems to agree with me. Could it be shared lines? I really wanted it to work for me, because it was such a great bread. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work in my diet.

This was Rudi's rsponse to this topic a few months ago:

Maggie here from Rudi's Gluten-Fre Bakery. To answer ButterfI8's question -

We do not have a dedicated gluten-free facility, we do have a segregated, separate manufacturing approach. We bake our gluten free breads on separate, dedicated equipment and on separate production days. You can feel assured our gluten free products never come into contact with something used to make a product containing gluten. As part of our manufacturing process, we also do the following:

We just tried Rudi's for the first time. My girls were so excited and loved it but...major gluten reactions for both of them :(

Oops! That is terrible. Sorry for them both.

I thought they were a dedicated facility.

Just finished two loaves of the stuff myself.

First time I've eaten it. I have not been feeling great at all.

Thanks for your post.

I didn't suspect the Rudi's.

Great. Glad to hear there's fabulous gluten-free bread that apparently glutens people.

Sigh.

I bought some Gluten Free Pantry French bread mix today and 4 tiny loaf pans. Hope to make some mini loaves to freeze and then re-crisp in the oven.

I can't say for sure I was glutened by the bread.

But I'm suspicious.

I guess I'm just bummed that now I'm leery of trying it. Have seen it around and figured I'd get around to it one day. I hate trying foods I see negative reports about, especially breads...because usually people can narrow down WHAT the problem ingredient is prior to eating it - soy, corn, xanthan gum, etc. And most reputable gluten-free breads disclose , which makes it harder. Sounds like Rudi's discloses and takes very thorough measures but something isn't sitting well. I'm sure with digging it will show itself but until then I'm leery.

I'm very sensitive to cc but I have not had any trouble with Rudi's gluten-free bread. We have had a similar discussion on this board before on Udi's. Some people get a reaction to Udi's but don't react to other things made with the same ingredients. It's a bit of a mystery but I suspect it's actually the amount and combination of the ingredients that gets some people. Too much Xanthan gum or yeast or that mysterious "dough enhancher" (used in Udi's, not sure about Rudi's). Anyway...you won't know until you try it to see if you are one of the few that reacts.

Ironically, I was more willing to experiment before the DH calmed down. I know I can't live in a food bubble, but wow I'm enjoying not being miserable.

I understand! I eat very few of these processed gluten-free products. I only have a sandwich or a piece of toast probably once a month but it takes a long time for me to get up the courage to try new products. I don't really understand when people say "I ate the whole package and now I'm sick". The first time I try a new product I eat one piece and then don't eat it again for a week. That way I know for sure if it is going to make me sick. If I eat a lot of gluten-free subs in genreal I'm sick and it's hard to pin down what. Maybe it's a build up of small amounts of cc or maybe it's just that I ate a bunch of junk food. gluten-free bread is mostly high in carbs and low in fiber--it's not good for anyone in large amounts (IMO). So moderation and eating only one new thing at a time is the key for me. BTW, I think most of the people talking about reactions to Rudi's are not talking about DH reactions so that's something you may want to weigh as well if that is your main symptom.

I eat Rudi's gluten free bread all the time with no issues - it's my favorite. Even though they do not have dedicated facilities, their manufacturing and testing processes are very strict, and I trust them a lot more than some other companies. You just have to be careful that you grab the right package.

I absolutely love Rudi's whole grain gluten-free bread. It's my favorite too.

Independently certified to <10 ppm is very strict, as good as Udi's and Glutino and better than Bob's Red Mill. If you're reacting to Rudi's consider other ingredients like xanthan gum as well as considering gluten.

Yes they make a wheat bread. I have bought it for myself. It is nasty so I find it hard to believe that the gluten-free one is any good. The wheat one is very dry and crumbly and goes moldy quickly.

I've never tried their wheat bread (for obvious reasons), but their gluten free bread really is good. It stays soft after you toast it, too...great for grilled cheese :P
