When was the last time you had an un-toasted piece of gluten free bread that didn’t crumble? Good question, right? Last year when my family and I were in London, England, I was thrilled to find an amazing gluten free bread that was chewy, soft and didn’t crumble in my hand. I wanted to bring boxes of the bread back with me…but my suitcase didn’t have the space.
A few months ago Glutino came out with their new, transformed bread. I was surprised at how big the slices of bread were, but I was even more surprised at how delicious the bread tasted. It is soft, chewy and has the elastic-y consistency that gluten bread has. The best part about it is that it doesn’t crumble…it doesn’t even crumble before it’s toasted. Hallelujah!
The white bread is your typical, plain, white bread but it would be delicious for grilled cheese. It’s also good smeared with a bit of butter as a side to a big bowl of chilli or pasta (carb overload!).
I really like the multigrain bread, the crunch from the rice bran makes it flavourful and it is the perfect base for a sandwich. I even like eating it plain with a bit of butter.
My opinions for the best gluten free bread always seem to be changing, but I attribute that to the the ever evolving gluten free industry and the challenge to perfect the best tasting product. Six years ago when I purchased my first loaf of gluten free bread (for $8), the slice was the size of the palm of my hand and the texture was like dense banana bread that was only good when toasted and smeared with nut butter. The fact that this bread tastes good on it’s own and is almost the length of my full hand says a lot…it’s also only $5-6 (depending on where you shop).
Have you tried Glutino’s new bread? How do you like? What is your favourite gluten free bread?
