More about Franz Bakery and the gluten-free bread:

Franz, an independent, family-owned bakery, recognized the need for high-quality, great-tasting gluten-free bread in the neighborhoods the bakery serves throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Northern California and Montana.

“We are proud to support the celiac community and a gluten-free lifestyle,” said Marc Albers, president of Franz Family Bakeries. “We want to meet the needs of the gluten-free community by not only providing certified gluten-free products, but also great-tasting bread that will satisfy everyone.”

The new line of breads is certified by the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO), and starting today will be delivered to participating stores and all Franz Bakery Outlets.

This is the first time I have heard of Franz Bakery, but I live in Ohio and have never been in any of the states served by the bakery.  I am looking forward to receiving samples of the gluten-free bread to see how it measures up to some of the others on the market.

    Sounds good. I haven’t tried any gluten free bread yet, but I’ve heard good things. I’ve sort of slowly been transitioning into more of a gluten free lifestyle. I suppose a more accurate way of putting it might just be to say that I’ve been reducing my intake of gluten – which is sort of what I’ve been doing with meat too.

    Personally, one of the major transitions I’ve made has been shifting from regular beer (bud light or whatever) to cider beers to reduce my gluten intake on the weekends.

    Just tried Franz’s gluten free bread. This is AWESOME!! Finally a gluten free bread that isn’t so dry, dinky and cardboard. It has great texture, is almost the size of regular bread, and I can get it at Costco at a great price. I can enjoy having a sandwich again. Can’t wait to try the 7 grain.

    I have tried this bread when living I’m Oregon! It is so awesome, those who need it will be crazy for it!!! I live in Arizona and would love to get it here!!!!!

    All i want to know if you are ever to branch out to southern calif markets. I hate udis bread. Your 7 grain bread toasted is wonderful.

    This bread is delicious! the only problem I have it that for the high price of this bread it should last more than a couple days before it turns moldy. I store them in an airtight package. I have purchased it three times and two times out of the three it got moldy quickly.

    I am experiencing a severe reaction to gluten contamination. I consume a lot of Franz gluten fee products and am wondering if any folks out there are experiencing a similar problem.
