A Definitive Ranking Of Our Fave Gluten Free Breads
Don’t lie. You’ve definitely felt better about eating a cookie, or a piece of toast, or a donut because it was “gluten free,” even though you know that gluten free doesn’t always mean something is healthier than its gluten-full counterpart.
But hey, those celiacs sure were on to something. After all, you can’t deny that avoiding gluten makes you feel less bloated, and gives you an excuse to say “nah” to the office pizza on Friday.
If you’ve hopped on the gluten-free train like every other basic who does SoulCycle, you’re not alone. If you occasionally are craving some bread, you’re not alone either. Here at Galore, we decided to do the people’s work and taste test all the gluten free bread brands so you know which one is worth your money (and the calories, not like you’re counting or anything). Check out our top picks, ranked in order of our love for them.
1. Barely Bread Grain-Free Sliced Loaf
You may have not heard of Barely Bread before, because it’s pretty new. But because they’ve taken their time to perfect their gluten-free recipe, they’ve pushed the shitty ingredients that you find in some gluten free breads out, and added in a ton of shit that’s good for you, like apple cider vinegar and fiber.
As for the taste, we’re sold. We found it to be bouncier and spongier than most gluten free bread, and its slightly sweet and nutty taste reminded me of challah. Plus, unlike many other options, Barely Bread slices were a legit size, not so small you can barely fit an egg on top.
2. Udi’s Millet-Chia Bread
Udi’s is kind of like the Starbucks of gluten-free breads. It’s the go-to option, most glutards know Udi’s like they know the bible, and as you’d guess, that means it’s pretty damn good. The slices are slightly smaller than your regular bread size, but that’s honestly probs for the best. We also love their Millet-Chia loaf because chia seeds are bae.
3. Glutino Gluten Free Bread
4. Kinnikinnick Multigrain Bread
5. Barely Bread Bagels
As a bonus, if you’re on gluten-free train but are missing that bagel lyfe, Barely Bread also makes bagels! Unfortunately, it’s not as close to the real thing as their bread is. The bagels are a bit eggy tasting, although this isn’t necessarily in a bad way. They are, however, kind of thick and hard to chew/swallow with a sugary-sweet aftertaste. Are they like the real thing? Not really. Will they do? Sure, why the hell not. Since they’re so thick, they are super filling.
