I had a red-letter day Wednesday when I opened my mailbox to find Schar had mailed me a two-piece bread sampler of their new gluten-free bread featuring 10 grains and seeds! What can I say? It’s the little things that bring me happiness!
Disclaimer: Schar is already one of my favorites as far as bread for everyday sandwiches and such goes. The bread is gluten, wheat, dairy, and preservative free and is also non-GMO. The individual pieces of their loaves are as close to the real size of a regular piece of bread as I’ve seen. But even better than that, the bread still has a bit of that spongy texture that makes you feel like you’re indulging in bread that isn’t gluten-free. It’s light, delicious, and very sandwich friendly.
The new 10 grain and seed bread features the following:
- Rice flour
- Quinoa seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Flax seeds
- Sunflower seeds
- Millet flour
- Buckwheat flour
- Quinoa flour
- Amaranth flour
- Chia seeds
To be honest, I didn’t tell a huge difference from the taste of their regular gluten-free bread. They are both delicious. And while I would imagine the grains and seeds in this new loaf only add to the nutrition of the bread, as one who tries to watch her waistline I am a little dismayed at the total amount of carbs. That is my only reservation and it’s one that seems to apply to gluten-free bread in general.
Bottom Line: I liked this new gluten-free bread from Schar and will hopefully be buying it soon at a H-E-B (our local H-E-B was affected by Hurricane Harvey and won’t reopen until January).
Thank you Schar for your dedication to making a quality product that is gluten-free and tastes delicious!
