Someone Said Udi's Is The Best Bread And I Dont Like It!

Recommended Posts

I've heard a lot about this bread but it is not available here. Wonder if it is available anywhere in Canada?!

Check out the Canyon bakehouse website, love2travel. There is information there on where you can find their bread and shipping costs also.

I agree the first few days were horrible. It's all trial and error the first few tries, I must of thrown out 5 different types of rolls and bread in the beginning (birds actually ate it). I will have to look for the Rudi's and the other bread suggested. Currently I use Udi's, love the raisin bread toasted with jams. I toast Udi's whole grain bread make my sandwich and put it in a ziplock while warm and it's much better when I eat it. I find the whole grain better and less bry then the white. Also try and use some type of condiment or fresh roasted peppers or pickle slices on a sandwich makes it softer and I digest it better. Grilled sandwiches are great the bread retains moisture on the inside and crunch on the outside. Yes, they are smaller slices but if you look the calories are more then regular bread.

I just read somewhere if you nuke bread a few seconds it helps absorb better when making french toast. In lieu of bread I will use gluten-free corn strips or rice crackers with tuna or egg salad. Vans make a nice flavorful Waffle, toast spread with jelly or jam wrap with plastic makes a good take to work lunch. I keep Chex cereal in ziplock for a quick go to snack @ work.

Keep a diary on your likes and dislikes and reason why, it's easier to go back and look then trying to remember. It will get easier and you will start feeling better soon. Take one day at a time.

Thanks. I just checked, did a fake order, and was told they do not ship here. Hardly surprising. If they did, the shipping costs would likely be quite high. That's ok. I will stick with Genius and my homemade bread until it does (if it does!) become available here. It did look good on the website!

My son is the one who is gluten free and he likes Udi's, but he really hasn't known anything else. This may not help much if you are looking to do a sandwich, but I've had much better luck with quick bread type things (banana bread, pumpkin bread, carrot bread, zucchini bread, etc.) than the white. Pancakes, muffins, and waffles have all worked well too. Maybe start with those to ease into it?

A very good bun is Bertille buns, one of the best I've found &most like a wheat bun. Soft & swishy..THe bad part is mailorder only...

celaic speciality has a gluten-free crossiant sandwich bun that is wonderful for deli sandwiches..& the donuts are to die for..

Udi's bread is good if you can get it fresh..I wrap a damp paper towel around all my frozen gluten-free bread,buns & nuke them for a few seconds, always soft..

I get tired of the same breads so I vary often.. I now have Genius bread from the UK,again good but the crust is a bit harder than normal bread...

Everybody Eats from Brooklyn has yummy baguettes & ficeille rolls.

Some enjoy Katz Bakery & Schar rolls & buns too..

Another bread I enjoy is Silvana's Italian Seeded Bread. They own a bakery& deli shop in Rochester, NY. Pizza is wonderful,cream puffs,chicken parm & more all very good...

I know the Raisin Rack in Canton, Ohio sells it & will maybe ship...if you want a roadtrip this is the store to visit....& to stock up....

Also htere is a bakery in Mt. Pleasant Pa that sells pepperoniRolls, breadsticks & much more& they are very popular & they ship ..theglutenfreeoven@zoominternet.net, they can send you a list of products...

With it being only a couple of days in, you are still making that mental comparison to the gluten bread . . . that will go away with time.

Love the idea of eating some EnerG bread and then the Udi's :lol::lol:

My daughter's first bread was the Kinnikinnick . . . small, frozen, couldn't pry it apart, crumbly once you did.

You eventually get use to the new way of doing things. It becomes the new norm. My daughter eats her cheeseburgers bun-free. Now that Udi's has hamburger buns, I bought some for her. She doesn't like them. Not because of the taste or texture, but because for four years she's been eating burgers without any bread(type) product. She doesn't think it tastes right with a bun . . . for one thing, it soaks up all her ketchup :P

Hey, my daughter loves the Ener-G bread and most people seem not to like it. But they do seem to sell a lot of it! I don't personally like any gluten-free bread very much but then I never was much of a bread lover. It will do better if microwaved for maybe 10 seconds or toasted.

The most like regular breads that I've tried are the quick breads. There is a recipe on here (not the forum but under the recipes section) for zucchini bread. It rocks! We've also bought a pumpkin bread at the health food store that is gluten-free and delicous.

Mostly when we are home I try to make things that are naturally gluten-free. That makes things a lot easier and you won't feel deprived when you eat things like that.

If you like to eat out a lot, look for places that have a gluten-free menu. The Old Spaghetti Factory and Olive Garden both do. There is also PF Chang's, Pei Wei, Outback, Bonefish and some others whose names escape me.

Hi! You said you were looking for places in Baltimore. Sweet Sin has fabulous baked goods. I think they've recently added food, too. Some of their stuff is also free of dairy and soy. I hated the breads that I tried when I first went gluten-free, but their bread was a nice treat every so often. It falls apart if the sammy ingredients set too long on it, but it has good flavor. It makes a mean fried PB&J. When I get a hankering for something tart, I go for their lemon or lime tart. No, none of it tastes the same as the wheaty counterparts, but they're delicious in their own right.

If you bake (or even if you don't) you owe it to yourself to try a loaf of Pamela's wheat free bread. It only needs eggs, oil, and water (and a heavy mixer) and makes the best bread I've had in my 10 years and about 25 different bread recipe attempts. I toast the bread for sandwiches, but very light toasting keeps the bread soft and pliable. I make a loaf, or swirl round "blops" on my Silpat to make burger rolls (which I also lightly toast). It's the best, in my opinion. I finally splurged on the 25-pound bag of bread mix (to which you have to add yeast. The single bag of bread mix comes w/ yeast).

I feel your pain. Baking beautiful loaves of crust country bread or shiny braided challah bread and cookies and cakes used to be my passion. I can't recreate... so I don't bake much anymore.

But try Pamela's. I think you'll really like it.
