Gluten-free breads to add to your shopping list

breadMost gluten-free breads leave a lot to be desired. Baking bread without gluten, the protein responsible for its pleasurable airy structure and doughy consistency, is a challenge that often results in an unappetizing brick that tastes and feels like cardboard.

Fortunately, some bakeries have managed to overcome the gluten barrier to create enjoyable gluten-free breads that will satisfy any bread craving.

One of my patients was kind enough to share with me two of her favorites.

  1. It is very difficult to find well made, mostly natural or organic gluten free bread that is free of seeds. They also contain too much fiber. My favorite so far is Food for Life Brown Rice gluten free bread. You must toast it lightly. I have also discovered that some well known GF brands have left me bloated so I avoid them!

    • Hi Lynne- thanks for sharing! I’ve worked with others who express the same frustration. Looks like Free Bread and The Gluten Free Bakery offer non-seedy breads, so perhaps they’re worth trying? Thanks for the tip on the Food for Life Brown Rice GF bread. I’ll let you know if I hear of others!

  2. I get my gluten-free breads from the gluten-free artisanal bakery, “Everybody Eats,” in Gowanus, Brooklyn. My favorites are the challah and banana bread, which is more like a cake. I have a small slice, toasted with butter, as my dessert after dinner. The challah is also best toasted.
