My son has Celiac disease, which is an intolerance to gluten. Gluten is in so many foods. When he was first diagnosed there weren’t a ton of pre-made or ready to eat products out there. Fortunately over the years, some companies have started specializing in gluten-free foods, such as Udi’s Gluten Free Foods.
At Udi’s Gluten Free Foods, we are old school artisan bakers. We take those same artisan principles, add skill and passion, and the end result is a delicious secret combination of ingredients that just happens to be 100% gluten-free. And we don’t stop there! We realize the varying degrees of food allergies and that’s why we create all natural and delicious varieties of baked goods that are also dairy free, soy free and nut free.
At Udi’s Gluten Free Foods, we think everyone should be able to eat a sandwich on hearty and delicious bread or indulge in a cheesy slice of pizza even if you are gluten intolerant or have celiac disease. Our philosophy is making gluten-free delicious.
I received samples of Udi’s Gluten-free Bagels in Plain and Cinnamon Raison varieties. My son’s favorite bread product, possibly his favorite food of all, is a bagel. Admittedly, we’ve always bought another brand of frozen gluten-free bagel, simply because they are more economical. This was the first time we’d tried Udi’s bagels.
The texture was slightly different then the brand we usually get, actually it’s a bit softer and I found to be similar to the texture of a fresh hard roll. We’ve always found that gluten-free bagels get hard pretty quick, these stayed a little softer then the ones we’ve been getting. My son has really enjoyed these and gobbles them up. We’d not tried cinnamon raisin bagels before and he really likes these a lot. The odd thing about these bagels is that there are no instructions whatsoever on the bag. My son likes to eat his bagels like donuts, so we microwave one frozen bagel for about 50 seconds and it’s fresh, warm and soft and just right for him.
I also received samples of Udi’s Muffins in the Double Chocolate and Lemon Streusel varieties.
The muffins come four to a package, and they’re a decent size. I shared part of my son’s muffin. The muffins are a similar texture to regular muffins (the ones with gluten), and surprisingly, a similar taste. They weren’t dry like some that we’ve tried. My son really enjoyed these. He preferred the Double Chocolate while I preferred the Lemon Streusel. Again, these muffins had no instructions. I wasn’t actually sure if these needed to be kept refrigerated, frozen or at room temp, so I followed suit with the grocery store and kept them in the freezer.
Udi’s also offers breads, buns, granola, cookies, cinnamon rolls an pizza crusts. Udi’s Gluten Free Foods are available in over 3,500 stores nationwide. You can find a store carrying Udi’s Gluten Free Products near you at http://www.udisglutenfree.com/stores.
