I thought it might be fun to see what brand of bread is prefered/most tolerated among people with MC. Gluten-free bread of course.

If you vote "other" please tell us which brand. I picked brands that I have seen in the stores but I'm sure there are many others. I would suspect there is a large regional varitation in what is available.

I would love to hear your comments about why you choose one brand over another.

Thanks!

For a while I was making my own, using Pamela's Bread Mix. Then I found Udi's bread, and switched to that.

I'm eating Udi's because Zizzle recommends it and I find it to be pretty good for garlic bread. Brandy

After many tries, some outright inedible, I found 2 bread recipes from "125 Best Gluten-Free Bread Machine Recipes" that are really good. I'm sure there are others in the book that are good but I gave up trying after making the White Bread Mix (I add flax seed and sometimes millet seed) and the Teff bread, a dark bread with dried blueberries. Both are better toasted as are most GF breads. I use a Zojirishi bread machine that DH bought for me after listening to a lot of complaining. The white bread mix has 6 kinds of flour and the flax seeds, is so tasty and holds together when toasted. The machine is programmable and has worked perfectly. I LOVE it. You can mix the flour ahead of time, keep it in the refrigerator and when you need bread, just add the wet ingredients and turn it on.

I like the Pamela's bread mix, but that's on hold right now because I'm not sure whether I reacted to it last week. I can't eat most of the packaged breads because of the potato starch.

My family likes Udi's and Rudi's equally well. Schar makes some excellent specialty breads, like their ciabatta rolls.

I have purchased Pamela's bread and have enjoyed it.

Question about Udi's - is this the frozen bread in the stores, or is there another Udi's available that you make in a bread maker? I am hearing a lot of good things about Udi's so wondering if the store's frozen bread is what you are referring to.

I am new to GF eating and recently searched our natural food store and specialty grocery stores. I came across Bob's Red Mill bread mix and cornbread mix. I made "Homemade Wonderful Bread Mix" in the bread machine, and although the dough seemed a bit soupy, the bread baked with a crispy crust and was very tasty. I baked the cornbread in the oven, and while I thought it had a bit of an after taste, my family liked it. Honey seemed to mask that after taste! Any suggestions as where to find xanthan gum, short of ordering it online? I haven't found it locally and would like to make my own bread. Recipes I have found include that ingredient.

I have found Bobs Red Mill and also another safe one from King Aurthurs Flour in our local markets, Hannafords and Shaw's (In the Northeast). Additionally you can usually find it at a good health food store. I'm sure you can also find it online. I know King Aurthurs Flour has a good online store, they also have a great gluten free section with several great products including GF bread, cake, brownie and cookie mixes. Just be sure to make sure the ingredients they use you can tolerate. As a personal note, their brownie mix is by far the best brownies I have ever had.

I prefer Udi's because it is "bready" and it holds together well.

For some reason, I had a reaction to Pamela's bread mix. I don't know what caused it, but that mix is off my list.

Regarding xantham gum, you can get it at most any health food store, including Whole Foods, Natural Grocers, Sunflower Markets.

Joe, I'm going to have to try that brownie mix if it is also dairy-free and egg-free.

Thanks everyone for voting and replying. The results are quite interesting. Udi's is a clear favorite. (Paula - the only Udi's bread I am aware of is the frozen kind.)

Garlic bread - what a brilliant idea! Udi's toasts so nicely if must be perfect for garlic bread. I feel a craving coming on.

Many more people indicated they bake their own bread than I expected. To have the house smell like fresh bread must be wonderful. I would imagine making one's own is really the best way to control the ingredients. Sheila - you make it sound so easy. I'm going to look into that bread machine.

I have seen Pamela's brand mentioned many times on this site but still haven't seen it in the stores. I must be blind. Good thing I see the opthomalogist tomorrow.

Thanks!

Sharine - I had the same problem with Pamela's and also any of her cookies.

Would like to say the best baguettes for garlic bread and other things is a brand called "Against the Grain". Awesome - Their pizza cannot be touched by anyone elses mix or frozen.

Just wanted to weight in on availability of Bob's Red Mill. Fellow New Englanders, Ocean State Job Lot has tons of it. They also carry other GF products, like Riceworks chips, Drew's salad dressings (some of which are also DF/SF), cereals. You never know what you'll find, but the Bob's products are consistent. And, they carry a brand of pasta that is really good called Sam Mills. It's corn-based, and it's the one we like best of all we've tried.

Schar Ciabatta rolls are good, and their classic rolls are the best I've tried for burgers. I like Glutino bagels the best.

In the Northeast, Price Chopper has a pretty good selection of GF foods, though I'm not crazy about the store in general. Whole Foods now has a store brand of GF bread, but I'm not wild about it--I like Udi's, Rudi's and Schar better.

Thank you for your xantan gum advice. I had been searching for xanthan gum in the nutrition sections and stores because I saw a bottle of the Now brand on line. It's in the baking section of our natural food store!!! Also found some GF flour in the bulk section of the store and will try a loaf with that--in the bread machine. The store carries only Bob's Red Mill mixes, but also has a new section with GF bakery goods.
