One of the trickiest items to replace when people go gluten-free is bread. For some reason, bread has become a North American staple in our diets. We seem to serve bread at almost every meal these days.
So it makes perfect sense that losing bread is the hardest part of a change to a gluten-free diet.
When Pete was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease (about 8 years ago) the gluten-free bread options were pretty sparse, and those that were on the market were a lot like cardboard.
But luckily things have changed. Thank goodness. Now there are a number of gluten-free bread options available. It’s pretty impressive.
All But Gluten
We had the chance to try one of the newest breads on the market – All But Gluten . You can buy All But Gluten in many Canadian grocery stores (Superstore, Fortino’s, Longo’s, Loblaws, and Metro to name a few).
So what sets All But Gluten apart from the other gluten-free breads in the grocery store? First of all, All But Gluten can be found in the fresh bakery section. We’re so used to buying our breads in the freezer, but now we can head back to the bakery aisles!
Second, All But Gluten products are also dairy-free and kosher. And the line is not just limited to breads! They make focaccia, muffins and pizza shells – all enriched with vitamins, minerals, and fibre. Pretty amazing, right?
All But Gluten products are made in a dedicated gluten-free facility and they’re certified gluten-free by the Canadian Celiac Association’s Gluten-Free Certification Program.
The kids obviously loved the All But Gluten Mini Brownies – we made ice cream sundaes with them. One of our testers (who was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease) said they tasted better than gluten brownies! I love hearing that about gluten-free goodies, don’t you?
The kids also really liked the pizza shell. It’s a thicker crust than we’re used to – much more like traditional wheat-filled crusts. I like that All But Gluten has lots of options and can be found in almost any grocery chain in Canada.
Companies like All But Gluten are making it much easier for those of us with gluten allergies. As most of you probably know, I prefer to choose whole grain flours, but I like knowing that, in a pinch, we can head into a grocery store and find a loaf of bread. As always, make sure you read ingredient labels to make sure you’re happy with the ingredients.
Have you tried any of All But Gluten’s products? I’d love to hear what you think!
