  • Another problem is that in almost every loaf you find three or four slices that have huge holes in them
  • They cost the same and have the same taste though the white seems to have a softer, less grainy texture

      Several years ago we found out that our son has wheat AND dairy allergies. We had to find a bread that he could eat. Like most kids he lives on peanut butter and jelly (believe it or not he is not allergic to peanut butter). After trying several different brands we settled on Udi’s.

      The pros: He likes it. It has more of a bread texture and taste. Other brands had


      the feel and taste of pressed sawdust. It is readily available at several different stores in town. It does not crumble into dust when toasted.

      The cons: The biggest drawback, at least for me, is the price. At close to six dollars per loaf it seems pricey, especially considering that it is about half the size of a regular loaf of bread. Another problem is that in almost every loaf you find three or four slices that have huge holes in them. I am talking about holes large enough to drive a football through. To Udi’s credit, when I contacted their customer relation department ambout this they were very attentive and shipped me two free loaves and two coupons for free loaves at my local grocery store.

      Udi’s offers their gluten free bread in both whole grain style and a white sandwich ...

      style. They cost the same and have the same taste though the white seems to have a softer, less grainy texture. Both keep well if stored in the refrigerator although they get hard after a short period of time. However the individual slices will soften up if placed in a microwave oven for about fifteen seconds.

      In addition to loaves of sliced bread Udi’s also makes gluten free hamburger buns which

      ate good but only come four per package and hot dog buns which are not very good being to tough and on the chewy side.

      Overall I would have to say that if you have to go gluten free, as it seems many people are these days, and you want bread then Udi’s is definately the choice to go with. It may not be great, but it is considerably better than no bread at all.

There are almost always coupons for Udi’s and Rudi’s breads online. I’d check Lozo.com and CommonKindness. My husband recently found out he was sensitive to gluten so the prices were an unpleasant surprise to me as well.

Now that you mention it, I have had this same problem with virtually every gluten free bread product I have ever tried. That said, Udi’s is one of the best. Sadly, that’s not saying much. Considering the price of gluten free bread (what is Udi’s? $ 6 a loaf or something?) it’s very irritating having pieces with holes that make it hard to get a decent sandwich out of those precious slices
