I think I’m in love. There. I said it.
Ok, I don’t know about other gluten free people, but I am always a bit sceptical when I see new bread products in the grocery store. After decades of horrible housebrick bread one choice in a loaf, it is heartening to see so many choices.
But, testing these bread products is often an expensive and disheartening exercise. I really do like to make my own bread but it doesn’t rate high on my priorities. I just don’t eat enough of it to justify making an entire loaf. Yes, I know I can freeze it but when I freeze bread I tend to get caught up in all the other things I want to make and by the time I think about it again it is frosty and inedible.
So when I saw the new PureBred products I thought the ½ size loaf would be perfect for me to try PLUS when I flipped the loaf and worked out the Weight Watchers Pro Points value I knew it was coming home with me. The varieties are only available at Coles and the ½ loaf comes in white and multigrain.
White gluten free bread is pretty easy to come by so I grabbed the multigrain and headed home. Opening the package, the bread certainly had a good aroma and texture and I was keen to try it as a sandwich and not toast it. Most gluten free breads are fine as toast but the sandwich test is the real measure of success. What better way to test than with the good old peanut butter and strawberry jam! (PB&J is my favourite!)
Celiac’s rejoice as this bread is by far the best store bought gluten free bread I have tasted in nearly two decades of trying to find a good sandwich loaf. See how happy I am!
You can find the two types of bread and two types of long roles at Coles supermarkets. You can also find PureBred on Facebook.
PureBred Gluten Free Multigrain Loaf verdict – 9/10 because nothing is perfect but this is pretty darn good!
