It's amazing isn't it?  I ate a sandwich for the first time in nearly 13 years without having to toast the bread.  A sandwich!!!!!!

You sound like DH when he finds something yummy that doesn't make him double over in pain & rely on buscopan &/or zyrtec.

My mum did the exact same thing!! tthumbs.gif

You know it's getting closer to 'normal' bread when she says Dad keeps accidentally eating it thinking its the normal loaf!!

There was a thread about this bread recently.  Its so exciting when you ro yours finda gf product that tastes great.  My DD didnt like the changed recipe and I didnt like the addition of 282 preservative.  I received an email from Coeliac Aust about a new brand available at Coles - www.pure-bred.com  I dont know anything about it or its preservative status.  We are on an absolute winner with Imperial Gluten Free bakery in SYdney.  Bye bye supermarket bread, hello fresh and reasonably priced bread.

Can't agree more! Generally speaking I keep bread in the freezer so don't get the chance to eat it fresh (which was IMPOSSIBLE with the old one - ick). But the other day when I got home from the supermarket, I had my first fresh sandwhich in ten years! I even felt naughty! biggrin.gif

With that said, I don't think its as great toasted as the old one.

ETA: I also tried the banana bread (cant think of the brand) the other day. It was also delish!

Glad to hear some people like it. We can't buy it thanks to the preservative, which sends my DS mental.  The week I had my kids on it was hell on earth.  It's a pity - I'd love to be able to buy bread at the supermarket.

Star276 - I saw that pure-bread in coles yesterday too. Sadly, when I Looked closely, I noticed that it had preservative 281 (same group as 282) but what completely stopped me buying it was the fact that it said it was made in Ireland. WT???

The new country life is bad I this house due to 282 being like poison to DS1, and DH also doesnt like it. They much prefer my homemade, so I just bake my Fg Roberts mix every few days. Or when I'm feeling extra nice, make a loaf of Brazen's Thermomix bread (I don't have a Thermomix , so have altered it)

Thanks Mumma3 - shame about the 281 in Pure-Bread.  The website doesnt have any details on it re ingredients so that's good to know.  We wont be going there.

Yep the imperial gluten free bakery is THE BEST!! Beats the new country life easily. Plus they have awesome hamburger buns which look like normal ones and taste great.

Really? I think it's a bit crappy. There's definately better options out there (oh and i live in country Vic....no fancy GF bakeries out here i promise!)

Before clicking on this thread I did the whole... NOOOOOOOO I love the smell and taste of bread.. but it's gluten.

So happy to see it's about GF bread. I bought a Country Life loaf this afternoon. I like the new taste. The old version was a bit to soy or eggy tasting for me.

I don't like the supermarket GF bread. And the preservatives put me off too.

I buy spring hill farm GF bread mix direct from spring hill farm. It's very easy to make (i use crappy hand mixer and get great results) and enjoy fresh bread everyday. They do a fruit loaf that is also great.

after 4+ years we have realised that preservative 282 is the cause of rora's constant defiance.

so thank you country life for changing your recipe so she hates it - finally we have a child who can do things without arguing over every single one.

won't be touching it again!
