Review: Franz Bakery Gluten-Free Bread

A little over a month ago I shared the news about a new gluten-free bread on the market from Franz Bakery.  I recently had the opportunity to sample the new gluten-free bread and was very impressed!

What I liked best about this bread is that ability to eat it straight from the bag- toasting is optional!  Some days I prefer to toast my bread for my sandwich, other days I like to spread peanut butter and jelly on the bread and eat on the run.  Both varieties of this bread held up to toasting and spreading peanut butter on untoasted bread.  The bread is a little more crumbly when untoasted, but it has a great flavor and texture.  The bread is made from wholesome ingredients and that really shines through in the taste.  I even fed this bread to Hannah (not gluten-free) and she really enjoyed it. 

Franz Bakery gluten-free bread is certified gluten-free by the GFCO (gluten-free certification organization) and can be found in participating stores and Franz Bakery Outlets.  I am thrilled to see another great gluten-free bread on the market.  More options means competitive prices and something to meet the needs of everyone.

    I LOVE the Franz gluten free bread with the pumpkin and other seeds on top. Wow! The best toast since having to be gluten free. I was trying to find out though if Franz gluten free bread is truly safe for celeacs.
