Review: Goodbye Gluten Bread

You all know by now that I love to gush about products that I love, right?  Well, sit tight, because I have some gushing to do!  I was asked if I was interested in sampling a new gluten-free bread made by Goodbye Gluten Bakeries.  Of course I was interested, though I had never heard of the bread before.  The new bread comes in white and multigrain varieties and is certified gluten-free by the GFCO

Goodbye Gluten Brand Debuts With New Line of Gluten-Free Breads

Fresh-baked white and multigrain varieties provide long-awaited gluten-free alternative in the bread aisle

Horsham, PA (July 17, 2012) – Most Americans wouldn’t consider it an impossible task to find a fresh-baked loaf of bread in their grocery store. But for the millions of people across the country looking for a gluten-free alternative, the bread aisle has been a frustration zone with nary an offering of shelf-stable, fresh-baked options.

The Goodbye Gluten brand today introduced its two inaugural products – Goodbye Gluten White Bread & Goodbye Gluten Multigrain Bread – freshly-baked in certified gluten-free bakeries. The 20 oz. Goodbye Gluten loaves will have a suggested retail price of $5.49 and carry the Gluten-Free Certification seal from the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (www.gfco.org).  The breads will be available in key retailers such as Giant Eagle, Jewel-Osco, Cub Foods, Roundy’s, Kowalski’s, Lunds & Byerly’s, Super One and Hornbachers across the Midwest in the first phase of the Goodbye Glutenbrand launch.

“Millions of Americans across the country are living a gluten-free lifestyle and the numbers are expected to increase as more people decide if gluten-free products are right for them,” said Charice Grace, Brand Manager, Goodbye Gluten. “The need to offer gluten-free varieties of a classic pantry staple such as bread is more important than ever, and we are thrilled to offer a freshly-baked, shelf-stable gluten-free bread brand in the bread aisle.”

With 90 calories per slice, Goodbye Gluten bread is a nutritious foundation to endless meal solutions –from a myriad of sandwich possibilities, to gluten-free classic peanut butter & jelly, to morning toast with fruit preserves.  For more information on this product and the Goodbye Gluten brand, please visit our website www.GoodbyeGlutenBakeries.com

I was a little intrigued by the fact that this bread was meant to be stored on the counter, not the freezer.  I followed the instructions and it remained on the counter the entire time I worked my way through the loaf.  No mold, no deterioration in quality.  It took me roughly one week from start to finish a loaf.  I was thoroughly impressed with this bread!  It was so moist!  There was no need to toast the bread, in fact I loved the taste and texture so much right out of the bag that I never did toast a piece!  This bread held up very well to overstuffed sandwiches and peanut butter and jelly.  Simply awesome!

Multigrain: Goodbye Gluten Multigrain satisfies on multiple levels! The earthy goodness of flax and sunflower seeds pairs wonderfully with ingredients such as potato, tapioca, corn and rice, giving each slice a moist, wholesome taste that’ll have you coming back for more!

White: Introducing White Bread that’s not just gluten-free – it’s tasty! Ingredients such as potato, tapioca, corn and rice give each loaf a soft, rich texture and deliver a mouth-watering taste that you’ll swear was home-baked!

I am thrilled that this bread is available in our local Giant Eagle stores!  I love the ease of making a sandwich and not worrying about how it will hold up if I have to transport it for eating later in the day. 

Have you tried Goodbye Gluten bread?  What did you think?

    Love having more options! Your review is (as often happens) the first I've heard of it, will have to keep an eye out. Have you tried the new varieties of Udi's bread? I like the millet/chia, about to try the omega/flax.

    • Yes, I have tried those newer Udi's varieties. I love the flavor, but this bread is much moister (is that a word?) and bigger than the Udi's. I feel like I am eating a whole sandwich as opposed to a mini version. I meant to mention that in my post and forgot.

      My mom (not gluten-free) tried the multigrain variety yesterday and really liked it!

  • Tracie

    I agree this bread is awesome! Definitely a new favorite!

  • I'm going to get some of this today! I have some leftover roastted chicken that's begging to become a sandwich! Thank you for the review, Kim!

  • Alison,

    Let me know how you like it! :) That sandwich sounds amazing!

    Kim

  • [...] it at Giant Eagle, but it was the only thing made from Goodbye Gluten.  I found this picture on Gluten Free Is Life. $5.39/loaf at Waterfront Giant [...]

  • Nicole

    This bread is so amazing!! It is soft without being gummy, and without falling apart in my hands. I am having a turkey sandwich with it right now, and I am totally blown-away!! It tastes like REAL bread :) I got it at my local Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh.

  • julieomcd

    I see you've tried Udi's, but have you also tried Rudi's Gluten-Free Bread? If so, do you think this is better than Rudi's?

  • Judy

    The white bread is ok if you like sponge cake and it does fall apart. It has a really dense consistency; which I don't care for. That was enought to make me not want to try the other flavors. I thought Rudi's consistency is not right either. The only one I fund that is GF & most like 'real' bread is Udi's, which is light & airy.

  • Terry J Wood

    This bread is fantastic. It's as good as the bread I am baking myself using Jules Shepard's GF flour.

  • Rachel

    Gluten free bread that actually tastes like bread! It's squishy and filling and delicious. Udi's is kind of dry and always left me wanting, and a lot of other varieties are more like cardboard. Thank you, THank you!

  • Tanis Fox

    Definitely the best store bought gluten free bread and I think I've tried them all. I usually bake my own from Pamela's bread mix, but I like this one just as well and it gives me a break from always having to bake bread. Also it stays together better when packing lunches. Thank you for getting gluten free bread right.

  • Teresa

    Today I purchased the multi-grain and instantly fell in love. I was settling for Lite Tapioca Loaf and OMG what a difference. It feels like a guilty indulgence and yet no need to feel guilty! And I have tried 'em all. I'm hooked and no longer feel like I'm compromising.

    P.S. I have no stake in nor do I have any affiliation with the company. =)

  • Winona Hughes

    The bread is AMAZING! More products soon please! :)

  • Stephanie

    I am so happy to read good reviews! I am JUST embarking on living a gluten free lifestyle and bought the multigrain version of this bread..I have been scared to try it but I will tomorrow for breakfast.

    I happened on this bread by accident at Giant Eagle, after being diagnosed with Celiac. It was a great surprise, especially the fact that you can leave it on the counter and use it as needed. I love it as toast with some real butter and a little raw honey. It's the best GF bread I've tried so far, and I've tried many. The only other bread I have like as much is VERY expensive, can only be ordered through the mail from Florida, and is about $8 a loaf!! I'll stick to this bread, it's really great, I don't feel deprived of bread anymore. Now, if they can just come out with a sourdough….that would be awesome!!

  • Rick

    We bought two loaves at Giant Eagle , one white and one multigrain, but now we can't find it on the shelf. Either they are out or they moved it from the bread section. Can this be bought on line?

  • Jane brehm

    What's up with Good Bye bread? We have been enjoying it since August, but now it falls apart in our hand as we attempt to eat a sandwich. Our daughter just called and said she wanted to return her 5 loves as one was just falling apart. The cost of the bread is high so we expect better quality. The company had better check their quality control or we will switch back to our old brand.

    • Kelly

      same here – every time I'm in Pittsburgh (4 hrs away) I buy at least 4 loaves. I freeze them and they've always been perfect. lately though they crumble in my hand or before I even get it halfway out of the package ???? I know they have a FB page – I'll check out what they have to say there

  • Irene

    I have beed recently diagnosed with celiac & an avid baker. This is the best bread I have ever had. It is as close to my homemade bread that I can't eat anymore. I unfesrstand it costs, but it is worth the price for the taste. The other gluten free breads are very dry with no taste.

  • Jacqueline

    My granddaughter who is 9 truely endjoys your bread. Wish there were coupons available to purchase this product. We go through a loaf a week if not more

  • Linda

    GOODGYE GLUEN, bread is the only I eat now. The rest of gluten bread tast like card board.
    So if I make sure I have at least 1 extra loaf on hand all the time. Good thing they have it in the a store where I live or I would stock up more.

  • Rob

    I disagree. This bread, to me, has an absolutely disgusting sweet flavor to it that morphs the flavor of whatever I’m eating with it. I didn’t feel well after every time I ate it. I’ll stick with Udi’s,

  • Jean

    Amazing Bread! I almost gave up eating bread altogether when my husband just "happened" to find a loaf of this in our local grocery store! Taste just like regular bread without all the heaviness and dryness of other gluten free breads I've tried! I'm hooked! THANK YOU!!!!! LOVE it!
