My mom started a gluten-free diet a few months ago on the advice of her doctor. She was experiencing some skin and digestive issues that weren’t responding to medical intervention, so they started looking at nutritional remedies. She’s had some improvement from the diet, but she “cheats” quite often.
It seems some people are bread people and others are not. My mom is a bread person. She eats bread every day where at our house a loaf of bread will go moldy even with five adults living here. So because she loves her bread so much, she’s had to look at alternatives and Udi’s Gluten Free Foods is one of the brands she’s added to her diet so she doesn’t have to give up the food she loves!
Udi’s Gluten Free Foods has some new products out just in time for the holidays. They’ve added a gluten-free Whole Grain Seeded Dinner Roll to their line. It’s filled with chia, sunflower, and flax seeds for a delightful crunch. I do appreciate that they’ve used non-GMO vegetable oil, but they do have caramel coloring which I’d love for them to leave out. The pack of 8 retails for $7.89.
The second new item is their crispy French baguettes. Sold in a pack of two, they retail for about $6.89 a pack. Each roll has 4 servings and they’re also made with non-GMO oils. Unfortunately our Whole Foods didn’t have these in stock, but we’ll check for them again on our next shopping trip.
Both new products are dairy, soy, and nut free (they do contain eggs). They join a full line of gluten-free bakery products like hot dog buns, cinnamon raisin bread, hamburger buns, pizza crust, pizza, bagels, cinnamon rolls, muffins, cookies, brownie bites, and a variety of breads.
Udi’s Gluten Free Foods can be found in the freezer section of many grocery stores including Whole Foods as well as online at udisglutenfree.com. Not sure where they’re available in your town? Visit their Udi’s website and click on the product you’re interested in and then “Find in Stores.”
Just because you’re eating gluten-free, it doesn’t mean you have to stop eating baked goods!
