Ah..... The great bread debate!  :D

 

Bread varies by country.  Are you in the US?

 

I am in the US and I like Canyon Bakery San Juan bread  http://canyonglutenfree.com/   It is like a "whole wheat" bread.

 

You will find that a slice of gluten-free bread is  usually smaller than "regular' bread.  Toasting it makes it taste better.

 

Sometimes, its best to not eat any bread for a few months.  Sort of "forget" what regular bread tastes like. Use rice cakes, crackers, corn tortillas, lettuce wraps, etc.  Kids might like a slice of ham rolled around a little cheese and a little spinach snuck in.  Then cut small and stick with toothpicks.  Kids love to eat with toothpicks!  Toast with PB on it.  Find other things to eat besides a sandwich.

Yeah, corn bothers me. At first I couldn't tolerate ANY corn, but now have gotten to the point where I can handle corn starch. Almost ALL gluten-free breads have at least corn starch in them. I THINK the Canyon Bakehouse no linger does. (I know they USED TO have corn MEAL in their bread but no longer do.) I haven't had any Against the Grain bread, but I have had their frozen pizza and their baguettes and they were really good. They have no grains in them at all, so if corn bothers you (and if the Canyon Bakehouse DOES have corn starch), I think that would be your only choice.

I have tried: Three Bakers, Udi's, Rudy's.

they are all decent breads, IMHO but I like homemade, too.

I also like Brown rice tortilla wraps.

I find all these breads in the frozen section.

 

Keep them in the fridge and lightly toast. Zap the wraps in a moist paper towel in the micro for 30 seconds.

 

and Canyon Bakehouse is delicious, I agree. (I tried it at a friend's house in Mass.)

but I was not able to find it where I lived in NY.

 

I am hoping (now that I am in FL) that I can find it in the nearest Whole Foods.

I like Sami's better than Udi's for regular Sandwich bread.  http://samisbakery.com/  Udi's still makes better hamburger buns and hot dog buns though.  There's a supplier here in the South out of Dallas that makes the best hamburger buns I've ever had.  I don't know the name but they supply for the hamburger chain, Fuddruckers.

While I'm a fan of Udi's whole grain sandwich bread, I'm a bigger fan of rice paper wraps. Since going gluten-free, I find I don't think "bread" the way I used to. This is good because it means I'm not craving something I cannot have. But I've always been a huge lover of spring rolls (theory: my body was always guiding me toward foods that didn't want to destroy me). So, I make wraps using rice paper rounds. The rice paper has a relatively neutral flavor, and once you get used to working with them, filling and rolling goes pretty fast. 

 

I chop protein (chicken, beef, whatever) into tiny pieces, add lightly dressed cabbage or lettuce, maybe some matchsticked veggies like carrots, some cheese like feta. Then I roll, and store with a slightly damp paper towel. Depending on how I've seasoned the ingredients, I may use a dipping sauce. Seriously, so good.

 

Also, rice paper wrappers are super cheap.

 

Note: this technique probably won't work for peanut butter and jelly. Some things must remain as traditional as possible.

My 2 year old LOVES udis white sandwich bread. It tastes just like real regular bread hes was used to and it doesnt need to be toasted :)

I love Schar deli-style bread. Doesn't need toasting and tastes pretty close to rye bread. Pretty pricey, but the slices are big do I can often cut one in half for a sandwhich.

I love rudis multigrain, I have always loved turkey sandwiches on whole wheat and that made a great replacement.  Also the Schar stuff that I have tried I really like.

We like Canyon Bakehouse best, but do eat mostly Udi's and Glutino Genius based on cost.

 

Toasting does improve - especially Udi's - and all make excellent grilled cheese :)

My family and I like Udi's bread & bagels.  Definitely prefer them toasted.  My kids didn't even say anything or complain when I switched over.  That was a nice surprise!

I've tried Udi's and Schar. I really like the Udi's but something in the ingredients gives me gas. My new discovery is Goodbye Gluten bread. My local Wegman's started carrying it. It's shelf stable and doesn't need to be toasted. I've tried the white bread and it's fantastic. It's a bit crumbly but not too bad. I've had turkey, PBJ on it. It's been sitting on my counter now for a week and it's still good.

 

http://www.glutenfreeislife.com/?p=5472 has a good review of it.

Mayby for a change: Blumenbrot, they have crispy bread with buckwheat, quinoa and chestnut. It is very tasty, good for sandwiches or just as a snack.

I had to look up the Blumenbrot, those look tasty!  I think in the US they may call them more like melba toast or crackers.  But I do love crackers :)  Pre-celiac diagnosis I probably ate more wheat that the average wheat-eater, haha.

If we buy it at the store, we usually get udis or against the grain. We tend to prefer the local bakeries, though. We are fortunate enough to have three of them near us.

Canyon Bakehouse is the best for us.  Celiac Hubby can now eat a "regular" sandwich without it falling apart.  Fortunately we can afford the price, and I order on-line.  Shipping is a little steep, but again, it's worth it for us.

I like Schar - I didn't need to toast it! But pretty expensive. I enjoy baking so I tend to bake my own from scratch. Or I get Udi's from Trader Joe's if it's too hot to use my oven.

So far the best one i have found is rudis cinnamon raisin. Ener-g is the worst I have tried so far.

    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.  
    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
