Product Review: Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bread

Guess what, my gluten-free friends; there’s a new bread in town!  image

If you’ve read my previous posts about GF bread, you may remember that I was super-excited to find Udi’s – not to be confused with Rudi’s – but there is another option on the scene!

So, let’s review… (and read on for a coupon!)

 

While I love Udi’s, the fact remains that the slices are a bit smaller and airier, which makes for good toast but can also make it harder to make a heavy sandwich. Rudi’s, however, is much more like real bread in that it toasts without getting too crispy, and can stand up to wet and heavy foods. Their cinnamon raisin flavor is also quite tasty for breakfast, and is a huge improvement over some other GF versions I’ve tried that literally fell apart in the toaster and burned five times faster.

Best of all, the taste is wonderful! Like the brand boasts, there is no “weird gluten flavor” we sometimes encounter; the texture is dense and chewy, without that sogginess that rice-bread can have when toasted. image

Ingredients breakdown: Water, potato extract, rice starch, rice flour, sorghum flour, organic high oleic sunflower/safflower oil, organic evaporated cane juice, organic honey, egg whites, organic inulin, yeast, sea salt, xanthan gum, organic cornmeal, organic sunflower seeds, organic millet, organic flaxseed, organic molasses.

Not vegan, but dairy free. (And check out my friend, sorghum flour!)

It has a relatively low calorie count; basically what you would expect to see in wheat bread. In other words, tasty without that crazy hidden calorie content (Pamela’s, I’m looking at you).

 

In short, look what a cute little sandwich we have here!

So, if you’re interested, Rudi’s is offering a $1 off coupon good through the month of June, to celebrate Celiac awareness. This brings the bread down to a price in the $4 range.

Bottom Line: Udi’s has a better untoasted-texture, but Rudi’s denser slices make for great sandwiches.

Readers, ready your toasters!

P.S. If you’re curious, the sandwich above is made with Trader Joe’s Grilled Chicken Burger Patties, which come fully-cooked and are great in sandwiches or eaten alone.

    Thanks for trying our bread out! We tested over a hundred recipes to get our gluten-free bread just right. Our breads contain only the highest quality, wholesome, all-natural ingredients and have the same look, texture and TASTE as regular breads, buns and rolls.

      Of course! 🙂 They’re pretty much just chicken and spices – and pre-cooked, which makes it super easy.
