One of the hardest things about Paleo is giving up bread. Warmly toasted bread with some grass-fed butter smeared all over it…yum! But, alas, I can’t eat it!
UNTIL (queue the music please) I found THIS bread yesterday at the grocery store! It’s Newburn Bakehouse from Warburton and it cost £1.65. I am always on the lookout or new things to try on this Paleo diet. One of those being bread. I haven’t had much luck in this area because most gluten free breads are loaded with sugar. This one, however, does not have any processed sugar in it! The manufacturer has gotten creative in this area and added currants and sultanas for sweetness. It is sweet. The other ingredients include tapioca starch, maize starch and rice bran, and a few others, but those make up the mainstay of this bread.
It did taste sweet and very yummy. If you don’t like sweet-tasting brad you probably wouldn’t like it. The texture is very similar to bread ut not quite there. It holds a sandwich together very nicely, although the slices are smaller than your standard bread slices. I made two tuna fish sandwiches loaded with cucumbers and it held it together nicely.
I would definitely recommend this bread to anyone looking for a gluten-free alternative.
On a scale of 1-5 (1 being the best and 5 being the worst):
Price: 3 – a little pricey, but they are using alternative ingredients which are more expensive. Not the most expensive I’ve ever seen.
Taste: 1 – very yummy if you like sweet. I you don’t like sweet, then it’s a 5 for you
Texture: 2 – very close to standard bread, but not quite there
Have you tried gluten-free bread? What did you think about it?
Do you someone looking for gluten-free bread – why not share this with them?
