Summary:

Dense, filling, smooth and tender, these tasty loaves have an earthy flavor that is delicious as toast, for sandwiches, or made into a breadcrumb coating. We loved that it truly is a whole grain bread (sorghum) without starches or even gums! The Chia Chia offers subtle sweetness, while the Omega Flax has more pronounce undertones to hold its own against stronger flavors.

I frequently bake gluten-free, and sample hundreds of gluten-free foods every year. But I also eat wheat, which gives perspective when writing gluten-free reviews.

Nonetheless, I’m never seeking a replacement, or expecting a replica, but rather judging if the product is good, period. As for Silver Hills Bakery Gluten Free Organic Bread, I can firmly say, that yes, it’s not only good in taste, but also amazing in quality.

We actually had both their Sprouted Ancient Grain Wheat Breads and these Certified Gluten Free Breads on hand, making it fun to taste how different they were from one another, but also how good they each were in their own right.

Unlike their sprouted wheat loaves, the Silver Hills Bakery Gluten Free breads were dense, filling, smooth and tender. They had a very earthy flavor (likely from the blend of whole sorghum flour and psyllium husk) and worked perfectly as toast or for sandwiches. The Chia Chia has delightful hints of sweetness, while the Omega Flax has more pronounced undertones that hold their own against stronger flavors.

I loved that the Silver Hills Bakery Gluten Free Breads are made without any gums or starches, but with the aforementioned whole sorghum flour and just a smattering of other all-natural ingredients. Even so, they didn’t always sit well, perhaps due to the psyllium husk, so we tended to eat it mostly as toast – just one slice in a sitting – or as coating. When ground into breadcrumbs and toasted, the Chia Chia makes an amazing healthy crust for oven-roasted eggplant!
