Udi’s Gluten Free Foods

Udi’s Gluten Free Foods

Last Saturday night, something amazing happened at my house: my wife Charlotte ate pizza.

It may not sound like much at first, but ever since she was diagnosed with Celiac Disease a few years back, pizza has been taken completely off the menu at mi casa. That is, until the Whole Foods in Little Rock introduced us to Udi’s gluten-free bread products.

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley that people with Celiac Disease are allergic to. To make a long story short, Charlotte’s ‘can’t eat’ list includes pancakes, pastries, paninis, pasta, and (last but not least) pizza. Sure, there are gluten-free breads out there. But, um, how should I say this….they suck. They crumble in your hands like a broken cookie, and then they are total gummy-goo in your mouth.

When Udi’s bread products found their way into the gluten-free aisle at our Whole Foods, they were greeted with the un-enthused cynicism you’ll find lingering in the air on any gluten-free aisle in the country. But we took home a loaf of the wheat bread and, shockingly, Charlotte loved it. As a side note, I was also thrilled.

I can’t tell you what a relief it is for her to find foods that she genuinely likes, rather than foods that merely meet the criteria of her digestive predicament. Udi’s white and wheat gluten-free breads are both sitting on our kitchen counter right now, and the gluten-free pizza crust is a huge hit in our home.

Udi’s is a Colorado-based company that makes traditional and gluten-free breads. They also have several cafes and a well-recommended line of granola. Their products have literally improved the quality of life for countless people who are allergic to gluten, including my Charlotte. I highly recommend Udi’s products to the Fresh Radar community.

Udi’s products can be purchased at Udi’s online store and at some grocery stores. Udi’s also has a regular blog featuring info on their Denver area cafes, yummy recipes, and more.

    This looks great…I’ll have to try it! I don’t have Celiac but do have muscle issues and fatigue that are better when I avoid wheat.

    If you’re in the LR area, has Charlotte tried the gluten free crust at US Pizza? I love it so much, I order it every time, even though I don’t have to. It’s fab.

    I am the manager of Gluten Free in Central Arkansas which is a branch of GIG. I have been hearing rave reviews of Udi’s bread ever since it hit the shelf at Whole Foods. We will be sampling it at the next meeting on Monday, January 18
