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.
