Rudi's Bread ?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had to laugh when I saw this but there is a bread in the Market Basket chain called Rudi's gluten free bread. Does anyone know what it tastes like? Is it similar to Udi's or did they just mimic the name for advertising reasons. hahahahaha

I find Rudi's to be BETTER than Udi's. It is softer and makes a better sandwich, IMO.

I tried both Udi's and Rudi's, and toasted they taste like the same thing to me. Some of my Rudi's loafs had some holes in it, though, which annoyed me. You just have to be careful to get the gluten free kind because I think Rudi's makes non-gluten-free bread as well.

I have the Rudi's gluten-free Wholegrain right now and I like it a little better than Udi's wholegrain. It has more of a "bread" flavor.

Rudi's is different than Udi's. Rudi's is based in Boulder, CO; Udi's is based in Denver, CO. My husband and I prefer the Rudi's whole grain bread. Both companies also make evil bread, but Udi's has a seperate bakery for the gluten-free bread. (I don't know if Rudi's has a whole seperate facility, but I'm pretty sensitive, and I do well with 2 slices every couple of days.) Apparently both now have hot dog and hambuger buns. . . But I have yet to see them at my local store. My King Soopers (Kroger) carries a line that isn't certified for gluten-free buns. <_<

But both Rudi's and Udi's are YUMMY!!! We did wonder at the names though! Especially as both are Colorado based. . . :P

Hi All,

My name is Maeve and I work at Udi's Gluten Free Foods. Just want to clarify that while the names are similar, Udi's is not related to or affiliated with Rudi's. Udi's Gluten Free products are baked in our certified gluten-free bakery in Denver, CO, but sold in stores all over the country! If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to email me.

Thanks,

Maeve Whelan-Wuest

BE CAREFUL!!!! In many of our stores, Rudi's bread is all together in the refrigerated bread section. I mistakingly bought a loaf of GLUTEN bread that was next to the entire display of gluten-free bread and poisoned both of my kids <_<

Yikes! My stores stock it all in the same section too. If it helps the gluten-free ones are in blue bags and the wheat ones are yellow and red I think.

I had never purchased it before, wanted to try it bc everyone raves about it. I didn't know they had both varieties. You'd think after 5 years I'd be a little bit smarter and read the stinkin package! :rolleyes:

I haven't tried Rudi's sandwich bread but I have tried the hamburger and hot dog buns. The burger buns are good but they don't at all remind me of the "real" thing. They are very hearty and have millet, flax, and sunflower seeds. I think they make better buns for deli style sandwiches than for a traditional burger.

I didn't love the hotdog buns. They tasted the same as the burger ones but they weren't soft and you pretty much had to cut them in half to get the hotdog in and then toppings kept dropping out the bottom. I also thought the seeds were even more out of place with hotdogs but that is just me. I like my junk food to taste like junk food! lol

I would LOVE to try Udi's buns. They look much more like the real thing and I love, love, love their bread! Just have to wait for my store to stock them!

Hi all! We are RRRRudi's (no connection to Udi's)! We are based in Boulder, Colorado and our gluten-free breads are sold nationally. Our bakery was founded in 1976 and our roots are in organic baking. We went to work on baking gluten-free bread after we heard the call from so many in the celiac and gluten-intolerant communities. After testing over 100 recipes we launched our gluten-free bread line last summer.

Please note our gluten-free breads are clearly marked on the front of the package (blue bags) with GLUTEN-FREE and are found in the freezer section. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks,

Maggie

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:



  • Our organic and gluten free equipment is color-coded for easy segregation
  • Our gluten free breads are baked only after our facility has gone through an extensive, full day clean-up process
  • All incoming ingredients are also tested and certified to be gluten free
  • As part of our gluten free certification, every batch of our gluten free bread is tested and must test below <10 ppm of gluten for distribution
  • We also send product to an outside lab to validate our test results and ensure we have less than 10 ppm of gluten

Thanks!

Maggie, Rudi's Gluten-Free Bakery

Except when they're not. And at my stores they're not and they're mixed in with the regular bread. Just be careful!!

Last week I gave my dd Bell and Evans chicken tenders (not gluten-free) the darn boxes are sooo similar. Thankfully my husband caught it before I gave her seconds.

I think sometimes I just get relaxed and am not shopping consciously, like driving. :)

I've tried both, and I actually like Udi's better. I think the white sandwich bread is a little bit lighter, which is what I like in a sandwich bread. It's just a preference. Definitely take them both out for a spin!

I'm a Canyon Bakehouse San Juan bread fan! They are also from Colorado, I think. I never liked white Wonder Bread.

What is it about Colorado & gluten free? Could it become the Gluten Free Homeland? ;)

Maybe it's time to move to Colorado!

I like both Rudi's and Udi's. They both ROCK!

My daughter (also celiac) lives in Denver. I'm sure she has no idea how fortunate she is to live in such a gluten-free city with tons of restaurants and access to gluten-free foods.

At least he'll give you a great place to visit!!! My daughter is in grad school at the University of Colorado at Denver (class of 2012). Hopefully she doesn't plan to become a professional student. :P

    • Soft blended, soups, porridge, Personally I had to avoid the follow for my last gluten attack Spices (made it burn),  any carbs, sugars even in trace amounts caused gas, We normally suggest removing dairy and oats also as they become problematic during healing. Simple soft cooked egg dishes (coconut/almond meal quiche and microwaved omelettes), nut meal porridge sit best for me. Many swear by peppermint and camomilla tea, and peptobismal but neither of those work for me personally, other swear by Imodium for the D.

      There is a product out there that is supposed to lessen the symptoms of a exposure called GlidainX that helps to break down some of the gluten in the intestines so it is not as bad but you have to take it right after realizing the issue. Not tried it personally but after my last exposure and the following 4 weeks of random bouts of D I had I would have tried anything lol. MY D did no stop til my antibodies went back down and my exposure was a low and slow exposure to a CCed food staple....
       
    • Hi lex, I haven't tested anything with NIMA myself, since I don't have one.   I did find some honey sites that claim they have gluten-free honey.  This is just a couple I found in a quick search.  It seems to me honey is made from nectar of flowers.  The nectar is a precursor to the seed.  So the seed isn't formed until the flower is fertilized.  Then gluten is formed as the seed matures.  So normally I think there is little chance of honey having gluten in it because the nectar and gluten are not present at the same time in the plants. I don't think it's impossible for honey to somehow get some gluten in it.  Honey from china has been adulterated with other things already.  Generally high fructose corn syrup.  But who know what else they put in it? I think's its safer to buy local honey where you know the farmer than imported brands IMHO. If there were a large flour mill in the area where the honey was being harvested I'd be a little wary of it myself.  At least for honey produced during the harvest season. http://www.barkmanhoney.com/faqs/does-honey-contain-gluten/ http://www.capilanohoney.com/au-en/faq/is-your-honey-gluten-free Is your honey gluten free?       Honey is naturally free of gluten. It does not contain wheat or its by-products. Our honey is 100% pure and natural, nothing has been added to it, therefore it is 100% gluten free. In addition to this, no gluten containing products are handled or stored in our packing facilities.  
    • Hi everyone! New to the forum. I was diagnosed in 2012, told to never eat gluten again, and never had a follow-up or anyone really care about the diagnosis. My Endo checked my vitamin D levels (the low level and genetic history lead to my diagnosis) bi-annually which have remained now in the normal range. This level is what I was always told determined if absorption was happening or not. I have never heard of the things everyone on here gets tested for  I feel so cheated out of my health in a way. anyways. I have severe, severe brain fog. I used to be so smart, sharp, witty, focused. I even have some personality changes and severe anxiety. I was put on Xanax after I was diagnosed but my tolerance to that medication is outrageous. I have to take three times the prescribed dose (my doctor knows this) in order to get any relief/clarity. I have a weight problem even though I work out four days a week (with a trainer), probably due to my flip floppy thyroid levels. Anyways, that’s my story! I have appointments with a new PCP, Endo, and GI doc in March! Just wanted to share with you all because you’re so kind and helpful. If anyone has any advice for this brain fog, I would be so appreciative.  I should also mention that I was extremely smart and sharp before stopping gluten, ironic? Like the lack of gluten dumbed me down 🙈 I never ever cheat. I know restaurants aren’t 100%, but I rarely chance that. There may be SOME cross contamination but I never feel repercussions.  Thanks for reading ☺️
