Review of O’Doughs gluten free bread and two more


I am always happy to share new products with all of you.  Variety is the spice of life, so they say.  It’s easy to get into a rut with gluten or dairy free products.  Sometimes a situation beyond our control forces our hand to try something new.

I was at my local market the other day and they were out of my Udi’s gluten free sandwich bread.  They have a separate freezer section with other bread selections, but most contain agave or chicory root so they are out for me.

I spotted something I had never seen before-O’Dough’s gluten free sandwich flatbread.  Hmm, I thought, let me take a look at it.

No agave or chicory root.  The bread is moist and a bit sweet, good toasted or untoasted.  I am going to give the sandwich bread and bagels a try.  Here is a link to their website if you would like more information.

On the same trip, I came across frozen pumpkin waffles.  I usually buy Van’s but these Nature’s Path organic waffles looked pretty interesting.

These waffles taste really good and have a good pumpkin flavor.  The only think I have an issue with is the amount of whole grain-as someone with IBS, all that fiber can be a bit much.  I have to space eating these out, but they are good.   Might be good with ice cream too!  Here is a link to their website if you would like more information on their other products.

Nachos were on the dinner menu this week, and I wanted to get my usual Go Veggie lactose free shredded cheese, but the store was out.  Curses!  The only other options were Daiya shreds (which I despise due to the slimy texture) or Daiya lactose-free block cheddar.  Ok, I thought, I can shred this in the food processor.

The cheese shredded easily and didn’t crumble.  It did stick a bit to the food processor, but I think any cheese would do that unless it had a really hard consistency.   I sprinkled it over the nachos, and nuked it for about 2 minutes in the microwave, as I usually do.  As with any dairy free cheese, it doesn’t melt quickly.  There was some unmelted cheese at the very top of the casserole, but that was ok.

I was a bit concerned about the chicory root in it, but I didn’t really have a choice.  Either that or no nachos.  I was really impressed.  It tastes like cheddar.  Most block cheeses are made with almonds or cashews, which I am allergic to.  This was a great find.  I would even eat this with gluten free crackers.  And it truly is dairy free, and way different than their shreds.  Go Veggie recently changed their cheese to lactose-free.  I’m not sure about their decision to do this, but I can still eat it as I am whey intolerant, not lactose intolerant.  I would definitely recommend this cheese.  Here is a link to their website.

So there you have it-sometimes it’s a good thing to expand our horizons and move away from the tried and true.  You never know, you might just find something good!
