In our twelve month gluten free journey, we have found ‘bread’ to be our most frustrating issue.
Don’t get me wrong, there are many varieties of bread available fresh and frozen: Genius (Coles) Zehnder (IGA and Health Food Stores) Livwell (Coles and Woolworths) BUT a priority was to find something that OUR Coeliac teenager liked.
For our son, texture, smell and taste are important criteria.
In typical teenage angst, he rejected most breads : too dry, too crumbly, doesn’t smell right.
Baked fresh and eaten on the day : Gluten Free Buckwheat Bread, Focaccia Style Flax Bread, Gluten Free Sun Dried Tomato Bread.
Fresh : Country Life GF White (Coles and Woolworths), Golden Hearth GF (unfortunately only available fresh in South East Qld) and Lifestyle Bakery GF White (in Townsville, we can only get it fresh every 2 or 3 weeks from a local health food store)
Packet Bread Mixes: Laucke GF White (from supermarket) , Springhill Farm ‘the real bread mix’ which makes a great Turkish Bread ( select IGAs and online) , Simply Wize Crusty Bread Mix (from supermarket)
