If you ask anyone who can’t eat gluten what their number one gripe is, it’s usually bread. My clients with coeliac disease & gluten-sensitivities say that most gluten free breads on the market are terrible. And sadly, I’d have to agree.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, oats (due to processing methods) and any products that contain these ingredients. As protein is a structural unit, it provides strength & integrity to foods, as well as creating a network of air pockets that makes bread & baked goods light and fluffy. When gluten is removed from products like bread & baked goods, they lose their structure & become dense, crumble & fall apart.
So when I was asked to sample the new range of Gluten free breads from Abbott’s Village Bakery, I was skeptical and expected that same old crumbly gluten free bread that exists on the market. But boy was I wrong! Not only are Abbott’s Village Bakery’s new Gluten Free Breads soft & light, but they didn’t fall apart or crumble! It tasted like real bread!
I am extremely impressed with the nutrition content of Abbott’s Village Bakery Gluten Free Breads too as they have added seeds. The breads come in two varieties, 1) Soy & Linseed, and 2) Mixed Seeds. The soy and linseed option contains a mixture of kibbled soy, linseed, chia and quinoa, and the Mixed Seeds contains sunflower, linseed, pumpkin, chia and poppy seeds. Plus, the breads are high in fibre with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives!
Abbott’s Village Bakery’s New Gluten Free Breads tick all the boxes for me! Taste, texture & nutrition! Well done Abbott’s Village Bakery. To get your hands on some, check out your local Woolworths, selected Coles & independent supermarkets. And try my delicious Gluten free bruschetta.
