I’m sure I’ve said it before but when it comes to the array of gluten free product choices I have they’re slim, I’m talking 2 grocery stores with an isle that has vegan and organic products as well, so you can just imagine my options! It’s nice to have multiple choices when it comes to food and thankfully the big name companies that I loved before my diagnosis are making that possible by introducing gluten free products .
Canada Bread Co. Ltd. which is 90% owned by Maple Leaf Foods Inc. Is one of those companies and has recently launched a new line of gluten free bread known as “Dempsters Gluten Zero” bread that has hit the shelves of major retailers this November and can be found in the bakery isle, yup the bakery isle! You’re probably thinking it should be frozen as other gluten free breads right? Wrong! Gluten Zero breads are vacuum sealed at the point of baking, locking in moisture and freshness allowing the bread to be stored unopened for 21 days on the shelf as well as for 5 days on the counter after opening. I recommend keeping it in the fridge though, as I found mine to be drying out by the second day on the counter.
They currently have two types of bread available, white and 100% whole grain, which are produced in a dedicated gluten free facility and have been certified as safe, 100% gluten free products by the Canadian Celiac Association! To be honest I wasn’t too sure about the whole grains and my Celiac but gave it a try nonetheless and am very happy to say I had NO pain 🙂 Gluten Zero breads are a heavy, more filling gluten free bread and I was extremely impressed by this quality as I don’t find gluten free food very filling! Another great quality that these breads have is their texture, soft yet spongy like a loaf I would have made, ok the mother in law makes 😉
I really like that Dempsters has made gluten free living easier (option wise) with their new line of breads and that they’ve made them great for us Diabetics as well with the little amount of sugars and fats and best of all 0 trans fats 🙂 Dempsters did an amazing job with their new line of gluten free bread as it’s great for sandwiches, french toast, grilled cheese and just plain old buttered bread and is most definitely a bread I’ll be filling my freezer with! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that their “everything bagel” might be their next yummy gluten free option, yum 🙂
