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!


Franz Gluten Free offers two different varieties:

Franz Gluten Free Mountain White – Each 90 calorie slice is natural and made with whole grains, with no High Fructose Corn Syrup, and 2g of fiber, 110mg of sodium and 2g of protein. INGREDIENTS: BROWN RICE FLOUR, WATER, TAPIOCA FLOUR, WHOLE GRAIN SORGHUM FLOUR, AGAVE SYRUP, EGGS, XANTHAN GUM, EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL, YEAST, CULTURED BROWN RICE FLOUR, SEA SALT, WHOLE GRAIN AMARANTH, ENZYMES.

Franz Gluten Free 7 Grain – Each 90 calorie slice is natural, made with 100 percent whole grains, including teff, quinoa, millet and amaranth. Made with no High Fructose Corn Syrup, the Gluten Free 7 Grain contains 2g of fiber, 100mg of sodium and 2g of protein.  INGREDIENTS: WATER, BROWN RICE FLOUR, TAPIOCA FLOUR, WHOLE GRAIN SORGHUM FOUR, EGGS, AGAVE SYRUP, WHOLE GRAIN TEFF, WHOLE GRAIN MILLET, XANTHAN GUM, EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL, MOLASSES, WHOLE GRAIN QUINOA, WHOLE GRAIN AMARANTH, CORN MEAL, YEAST, CULTURED BROWN RICE FLOUR, SEA SALT, ENZYMES.

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.
