I’ve professed my love for Rudi’s Organic Bakery breads and other goodies, but Rudi’s has a soft spot for accommodating special diet needs, so they created an entire line of Rudi’s Gluten Free Bread products, including loaves, rolls, tortillas, pizza crusts, and seasonal stuffing!
To note, Rudi’s Gluten Free bread products are certified gluten-free, but I couldn’t find any information about if they are baked in a separate facility from their organic (wheat-based) products). By the certification standards, though, they are rigorously tested. And like the other Rudi’s products, they are dairy-free!
I’ve just barely touched on taste-testing of the Rudi’s Gluten Free bread line-up, but will update this post as we try more. Feel free to comment with your own review on any of the Rudi’s Gluten Free bread products – we would all love to know your thoughts.
Rudi’s Gluten Free Bread
At last check, they offered five varieties (including Cinnamon Raisin!), but thus far, we’ve only sampled the latest, Multigrain. It was surprisingly light, but with hearty flavors, and had a unique, earthy texture. My husband, who has eaten gluten-free for a few years, liked it, as did I, but we both agreed that it needed toasting (like most gluten-free breads).
Rudi’s Gluten Free Rolls
In our taste-tests, we skipped right over the hamburger and hot dog buns, and went straight for the new Ciabatta Rolls. I admit, all of the fast food ads touting these Italian-inspired breads had me curious. I haven’t yet sampled wheat-based ciabatta rolls, but this gluten-free version was tasty!
Both the Plain and Rosemary Olive Oil Ciabatta Rolls had delicious flavor, and were very crispy on the outside, but soft and tender on the inside. These were best warm (I don’t recommend them for packing along as they do tend to dry out), when they are most tender and emit and amazing rosemary scent. These are perfect for soups, salads and even dipping.
Dietary Notes: By ingredients, Rudi’s Gluten Free bread products are dairy-free / non-dairy, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free, and vegetarian. Nonetheless, check with the company on their manufacturing processes for all varieties if potential allergen cross-contamination is an issue for you. Processes and labeling are subject to change at any time for any company / product.
