Simply the best gluten-free bread
Delicious gluten-free bread from a mix …
Gluten-free bread for me is the holy grail of gluten-free food. A hurdle yet to be overcome to make gluten-free eating as good as a regular diet. Although, I’ve come across some pretty good attempts they still pale in comparison to their glutened cousins. But I have had a kind of Eureka moment and for the first time in eighteen months eaten some bread that made me go WOW and it’s from Glutafin.
Back in November I attended the Cambridgeshire coeliac group’s gluten-free food fair. Whilst there I was handed a few free freebie products to try, one of which was a box of Glutafin’s multipurpose white mix. The box suggests using it for making bread, pastry, biscuits, scones, batters and sauces which I’m sure you’ll agree is truly multipurpose.
I opted for the bread in the breadmaker version and it certainly looked and felt like real bread when I took it out, unlike the usual gluten-free varieties which are more brick like in stature and sometimes texture too.
But this one was … WOW… it was light with a lovely crust and it honestly tasted like real bread-maker bread, just look at it !
In fact my gluten eating children kept pestering me for some as they liked it so much but I guarded it jealousy. It was brilliant, even my gluten eating husband agreed (and he’s not easy to please!) I so enjoyed my first slice I’ve frozen the rest to enjoy as a special treat. You see I’m not coeliac so don’t get food on prescription and on checking out the Glutafin website it’s a product that’s only available via this method.
However, I note from their website that Glutafin products are now available at Holland & Barrett so maybe this is a step towards their goods being widely available for everyone. Please Glutafin could you make the multipurpose white mix available online or at Holland & Barrett. It’s seriously the best gluten-free bread I’ve tried EVER!
If you’ve tried the mix I’d love to hear what you used it for and what you thought!
