only kind I could find was the brown rice bread and I didn't care for it...but it was okay toasted.
I usually make a batch of biscuits and then cut them in half for sandwiches, or use the Corn Tortilla and make a wrap.
I found a lot of recipes for things like strawberry or banana breads, but have not tried them yet.

Doesn't matter how long it takes, as long as we stay on the right path...we will get there. LIfe is in the journey, not the destination

Hi guys,
I haven't posted for a while but have been here reading all your posts! Out of all the trials and tribulations of being gluten free, finding the right bread was the most challenging and frustrating! Then a new friend, who is also Celiac and GF, told me of the Gluten-Free Pantry and their "Favorite Bread Mix". I tried it and it was really good. It has a great taste. At the same time I tried the Kinicknick bread and bun mix (don't know if I spelled it right) that GFNOMAD talks about. Love it too. The texture is more like the good ol' white bread we all knew and loved. Now I have two good choices. Thanks for your input. I am now on to try more recipes, not a good cook mind you, just hungry!

No one is guaranteed hapiness. Life just gives each person time and space. It's up to us to fill it with joy.

Whole Foods just opened in our town and I'll admit, their bakery is amazing. They will even special order if you call a few days ahead.

We're still hooked on Sami's Millet & Flax bread made in Tampa, FL.

I found a health food store in our area that ships it to our area from FL. Sami's bread holds up very well, even great for grilled cheese and french toast!

You can call the bakery and find out if someone in your area is a distributor. Unfortunately you can't buy individual loaves - you have to buy it by the pallet.

Yeah, I don't care for the Ener-G breads either. Thank goodness there are much more choices now.

My favorite bread is the Glutino Corn Bread. Bagels are my weakness, so I didn't try them. Also like their Flax and fiber bread. After being diagnosed I bought the Ener-G bread, and it was awful, but I kept buying it because I thought that was all that was available. Now I drive about 13 miles to get the Glutino at Wild Oats. Later this year there will be a Whole Foods store about 5 miles from me.
I can't wait.

I agree with GFNOMAD. I have GF for 24 years, and I know what I like and don't like. Trial and error. Eating GF back then was so much more difficult than it is now, believe me! Foods for GF have evolved a lot since then. Back then we didn't have any choices for breads etc. It was yuck, or yuck. No inbetween.

The breads available depend on where you are - Canda, USA, East Coast vs West Coast, Australia etc. So what is available in one area, another has never heard of it.

I use Kinnikinick's Bread & Bun Mix and I really like it. Very easy and quick to mix - 3 parts mix to 2 parts liquid. Also little more than 1/3 the cost of packaged bread. I can mix it in any bun/loaf pan I want so I have hmaburger buns, rolls, etc. NO TOASTING needed and it keeps for several days without freezing. I usually add a bit of flax or ground almonds to give it more substance. (see my photo of my summer hamburger). There is another topic on making breads that has lots of information too.

Several people have recommended Kinnikinick's Italian White Tapioca Rice Bread. I tried it the other day and discovered it's a great bread for French Toast or Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I'll keep it in the freezer for these treats.

The Glutino Flax Bread will give good nutrition and tastes pretty good too. It is very similar to the Kinnikinick Sunflower Flax Breads.

The EnerG white rice/brown rice/tapioca breads make great Melba Toast if you slice them in half and toast them until light or medium brown colour. Otherwise, yuck!

Having been gluten free for 26 years, I've tried so many breads and discovered my favourites. These change over the years. Barb

I love Whole Foods Gluten-Free Bakehouse. If you live near a Whole Foods give them a try! I get the sandwich bread and their pizza crust. My mom likes the Prairie Bread and my dad likes the muffins. We drive 3 hours to go to Whole Foods and stock up. The downside is that they have a lot more calories than regular bread and hardly any fiber.

I agree with the others about EnerG, they are terrible. I prefer the Glutino products. For the person who said they were fishy, I'd check what was last on your cutting board! I have not had any problems with any Glutino products and I've been eating them for years.

El-Peto Italian Bread is by far the best bread I have ever had. I like the Glutino Bagels (the poppy seed one) but I find they kind of have a fishy taste to them so I have load on the cream cheese :)

I think I have some Glutino Raisin bread too - it's ok but it's not the greatest. I also have some El-Peto Potato bread but I haven't gotten to that yet.

LOL!! That was my first loaf of bread too, and I thought it was the worst stuff ever! You have to toast it to make it palatable. Toast it nice and golden brown and put some kind of spread or something on it and it isn't TOO bad, lol. Next time try the kinnikinnick bread or glutino bagels, but remember to toast them! I also highly recommend the book "The Gluten Free Kitchen" by Roben Ryberg. The bread recipes are good and she uses potato starch and cornstarch for the flour.

I haven't had a Glutino option, but have tried EnerG ( emoticon ) breads.

I just found in the freezer section: Garbo bread from Sweden. I've tried Sunflower and Sport. I like both (Sport isn't as messy).


Update: I've tried the Glutino and it reminds me of a European dense bread. I liked it :-).

I love the Glutino bagel and English Muffins, as well as the Kinnikini (sp?) english muffins, but I chose to eat the Glutino Flax Seed bread as it has less calories than the bagels and it has the flax for fibre.

I love the Glutino bagels, but had to give them up because of casein intolerance. My favorite regular bread is Kinnikinnick white bread by far. I sometimes thaw it and toast it and take it with me when we go out in case we stop somewhere for a sandwich. It makes a good sandwich.

One of the better frozen breads... I just stumbled on Sami's Bread (made in Tampa, FL). Their flax seed bread is awesome.

But it is NOT made in a gluten-free environment.
