I have Celiac Disease. That is an autoimmune disease. It’s not just a sensitivity or allergy to gluten. It means if I accidentally eat gluten a whole host of things can happen to me and it triggers an autoimmune response that can take days to weeks to recover from. That being said, there are many that suffer with it as an allergy or just sensitivity and finding food to eat and prove difficult at times.
Many people who seek out gluten free bread will be disappointed to find that most gf bread is hard, crumbly and has to be toasted in order to eat it. Not Udi’s. Udi’s bread is soft, straight out of the bag. It tastes like bread, if it’s overly dry and holds up nicely. This bread is also soy free and nut free so they kill 3 allergies in one bread.
The one things Udi’s gets numerous complaints about is the size of their slices. They’re pretty small. Sometimes there are large air pockets inside the loaves as well, leaving you with next to nothing for a slice of bread. This is extremely disappointing when you’re paying $6-10 for a single loaf of bread. However, if you take the time to go to their website at udisglutenfree.com and tell them about your loaf, they’re replace it for you and most likely send you a couple coupons as well. I’ve had to do this several times and each time they’re prompt with their response and resolution. It is a pain in the butt having to go through all that but I like that they’re willing to make it right.
I buy my Udi’s bread at Target. I buy the larger loaf and it runs about $8.99. I tuaoially always have a couple or Target Cartwheel has a sale going on. I’d recommend Udi’s to anyone starting out on a gluten feee diet. This is the best gf bread out there. That that from someone who has been gluten free for 10 years.
