Anyone Know Where To Buy Udi's In Canada?

I just trekked it over to Whole Foods only to be told that they've never even heard of Udi's.

I was so annoyed that I emailed them and pleaded with them to start carrying Udi's products. I was emailed back by someone at WF and she said because of french/english labelling requirements in Canada, the fact that the bread is fresh (short shelf life), and the fact that she doesn't know of anyone who's distributing it here, it's unlikely that they'll start carrying it :angry: .

So SICK of the crappy selection of gluten free foods we have here in Canda. We have NOTHING. Don't they realize we need gluten free choices here too?

Sorry....ranting....just annoyed because I was really excited about Udi's bread :(

Actually, gluten-free food makers located here in Canada include El Peto, Glutino, Kinnikinnick, and Tinkyada. Depending on where you are, it may be difficult to find a store that carries them.

Thanks Peter! I have tonnes of Kinnikinnick (sp?) products and absolutely love them but I was stoked to try Udi's bread because of all the raving reviews. My son is so picky and I'm yet to find a gluten free bread that he'll eat. It'd be nice if our selection in Canada was expanded :D

The Whole Foods in Penticton will be a little while longer. I suspect by the first week of September. All Natures Fare stores will be carrying Udi's Breads to start and hopefully the muffins, pizza crusts and bagels as well. We are trying to get Udi's into the Ontario market as quickly as possible but it will not happen as fast as the West Coast. Whole Foods Ontario - 2 locations - Oakville and Toronto want to carry the product and we are trying to get it to this market as quickly as possible. Look for it in natural stores and then supermarkets next. Probably in the next 2 months...end of Sept...beginning October, for the Ontario market.

I'm so excited that Save-On now carries Udi's bread! When I was in Seattle, I was able to experience it fresh, and recently bought a few packages (not cheap at $6.29 CAN each) from the frozen section in Save-On-Foods. To avoid drying it out, I leave the whole package in the fridge instead of defrosting every morning.

The Udi's white bread reminds me exactly of the old Italiano (gluten!) bread I used to eat, when toasted.

The thing I like best is that it doesn't taste sweet! Like a lot of gluten free breads I try..

I don't know all the breads you've tried but I have 4 children who are all gluten free and all 4 of them really like the Food for Life Brown Rice Bread, even the 2 picky kids! (I can't use Udi's because 2 of them are also egg-free). I have toasted it and used it for sandwiches in their school lunches. I was afraid it would be hard or yucky by the time they ate it, but they all like it!

How about the Victoria area?

Sadie, if you're still around, I've seen Udi's at Pepper's in Cadboro Bay and at Planet Organic at Quadra and Mackenzie.

Hello, I'm also a mom to three!

Udi's bagels and breads are now at the 41st and Dunbar IGA in Vancouver, BC.

Also at WHOLE FOODS on FOurth Avenue (and slightly better priced there).

There is Udi's in the GTA! Portions in Guelph now carries it. They have 2 types of bread, muffins, bagels, and pizza crusts! They also carry tons of other gluten-free stuff, including their own fresh baking and prepared frozen meals. They have lots of Shar stuff too, which I love. So check out portions, worth the drive to Guelph for Udi's alone, plus all their other great stuff!

The Natural Food Pantry in Ottawa has the BEST gluten free bagels I have ever tasted. They tasted like REAL bread.

Nut'n Gluten in Vaughan for the GTA folks supposedly has amazing bread too.

I have tried the Udi's products but have to say that O'Doughs has a much better line up of breads and other goodies. Check out their website www.odoughs.com They have a great store locator and their stuff is very well priced. My favorites are the Flax Pizza Kit, Flax Loaf and the Banana Chocolate Chip Cake. I dare you all to try them. YOU WILL NEVER GO BACK TO ANY OTHER BRAND.. I promise :)

I'm new to this forum and about a year into gluten free. I had a friend (also gluten free) who came to visit and brought Udi's bread, bagels and muffins. It was the first time I had ever tasted gluten free bread or bagels that didn't taste like cardboard and sawdust!! I'm in the Kitchener area and don't drive but would love to find a local place that carries Udi's.

The Calgary Gluten Free store is now carrying UDI's.

Glad to hear they are now carrying it.

The packaging has both French and English on it. Not sure if that is something they had to do specially to send stuff to Canada.

We have had Udi's products available to us in little Regina, SK for quite some time now. I believe it is now available in a dozen stores in our city. Just tell the Calgary stores that if little Regina can be accomodating, they should be able to manage as well.

    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,
