Gluten Sensitive Patients Rejoice: The Best Gluten-free Bread Ever Made!

If you’ve been following this blog at all you know that it is not commercial in any way. I don’t push products or sell anything. But sometimes you just need to give credit where credit is due.

My family and I just got back from a beautiful 5 day vacation (who can get away for longer!) in Jackson Hole, WY. We rode horses, hiked, enjoyed white water rafting and the amateur photographer in me had a field day!

Being a diligent mother I checked out gluten-free options in Jackson Hole and found a great health food store. Upon arrival I asked for help finding gluten-free breads and a knowledgeable sales person directed me to the freezer and mentioned that a new bread was selling very well and getting rave reviews.

I’m adventurous and I already recognized the rest of the breads they offered so I happily purchased two varieties of Udi’s gluten-free bread. They offer a whole grain and sandwich bread.

As many of you know, even the best gluten-free bread usually requires toasting. But Udi’s defrosted and was instantly soft. Before we even tasted it, it was obvious that we were dealing with a “new breed” of gluten-free bread. Then came the tasting and we were smitten. It was unanimous that if you didn’t know it was gluten-free you’d never know by tasting it. I’ve said this before about certain dessert items (like brownies) and I defy anyone to figure my lasagna for being gluten-free, but bread had never remotely fit into that category. The best we could hope for was that it wasn’t too bad – as in dry and crumbly…

That was until Udi’s came along. For those of you living in the Rocky Mountain area of the U.S. you’re in luck. Udi’s is produced out of Denver, CO and they are well represented there. For the rest of us, there’s going to be a waiting period. I recommend you go online and order from there: www.udisfood.com. The gluten-free portion of their website is being worked on currently so you may need to call- 303-657-1600.

But believe me any trouble you have to go through is well worth it. You’ll be a happy little bread eater! And did I mention that it’s not only gluten-free but dairy, soy and nut-free?

I won’t ruin this good news by encouraging you to keep such simple carbohydrate consumption to a minimum… I’ll save that for a later blog!

Dr. Vikki,

Thanks for your own personal "rave review" for Udi's amazing breads! I think it's great you would let people know about this life changing bread because it can really make their life simplier and certainly more tasty! I'm also happy it made your vacation just a bit easier.

Udi's on-line ordering system is currently being built and will be up and running sometime in September. For now, people can speak to wonderful Cynthia by emailing at:

GlutenFree@UdisFood.com

Udi's also makes incredible blueberry muffins (my first favorite), lemon streusel muffins, and great pizza crusts. Everything is shipped from Denver by FedEx 2 Day Air.

In addition to direct orders, we're encouraging people to go into your local stores and encourage them to start carrying Udi's. Many stores in Colorado and Texas are selling out! Udi's products are or soon will be in Northern California, Washington, Minnesota, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona. We no longer need to eat inferior bread! Celiacs Rejoice!
