Gluten-Free Bread Brands

Fresh and Frozen Products You Can Buy Or Order

When it comes to gluten-free bread (or any other bread, for that matter), the time-honored consensus is that homemade beats store-bought, anytime. A few years ago, this was very true, since a couple of gluten-free products on the market didn't offer much in terms of taste or texture.

But few of us have time to bake our own bread, and fortunately, gluten-free manufacturers have stepped up with an ever-broadening variety of excellent store-bought gluten-free bread products. Here's a rundown of what brands are available.

Canyon Bakehouse makes 7-Grain, Mountain White, Deli-Style Rye (which, of course, isn't really made from the gluten grain rye), Hawaiian, Hawaiian Sweet, Honey Oak, Multigrain, Ancient Grain, and Country White bread in addition to a variety of bagels and cinnamon-raisin bread for breakfast, and sandwich buns. All can be purchased through the company's website. You also can find Canyon Bakehouse products in the bakery sections of more than 750 Target stores in the U.S. and at some grocery stores.

Ener-G

Ener-G, a Washington state company specializing in allergen-free products, offers a wide variety of bread, ranging from basic white tapioca sliced bread to high-fiber and multigrain loaves. Many of the bread varieties also come in "light" options including tapioca, brown rice, white rice flax, and more. The company also offers bagels, hot dog and hamburger buns, english muffins, dinner rolls, and even traditional stuffing. Many of Ener-G's products cater to those with additional allergies or intolerances. For example, you can purchase yeast-free gluten-free bread loaves in both brown and white rice flavors, plus egg-free raisin bread. Conventional supermarkets often stock one or more types of Ener-G bread, and you can order the products online.

Ener-G products are produced in a gluten-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free and Kosher-certified facility, and the company tests its products to make sure they contain fewer than 5 parts per million of gluten.

Kinnikinnick Foods

Kinnikinnick Foods produces many different kinds of gluten-free breads, including whole grain, multigrain, white, and cinnamon-raisin. All are free of dairy, soy, and nuts, but contain corn, yeast, and potato. As for egg, the company states that their bread "does not contain egg but is produced in a facility where egg ingredients are used in other products." The company also sometimes creates special limited edition breads, such as its "festival bread," a product that's filled with candied fruit and sold only in November and December. 

The University of Nebraska has certified Kinnikinnick's products to contain fewer than 5 parts per million of gluten, and the breads are produced in a nut-free facility.

According to New Grains Bakery CEO and founder Tim Lawson, New Grains carefully sources all of its raw materials and grinds its own flour onsite from whole gluten-free grains in order to eliminate most sources of gluten cross-contamination.
