Warburtons wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free bread and rolls – good marks!

posted in: Blog | 0


So the latest products I tried were Warburtons bread. They are wheat free, gluten free and dairy free. I wasn’t too sure what to expect as when so many key ingredients are taken out, it can often be a real let down! The Newburn bakery has a good range of products, which includes fresh white and brown loaves as well as rolls. All of which are fortified so that they are high in calcium and provide a source of iron.

Warburtons are known for their good bread anyway, so they’ve dedicated a separate gluten-free bakery which apparently delivers the same taste, the only difference is they’ve taken out the wheat, gluten and dairy. I say apparently because I’ve never tried the “real” bread with my intolerances. They’ve also ensured that the bread is nutritionally good, so the bread is low in salt, sugar and saturated fat and contains under 90 calories per slice. So it can be enjoyed as part of a healthy, balanced diet.Their seeded bread is a good source of protein and is high in fibre, it also contains millet, linseed, poppy and sunflower seeds.
I tried the white bread, brown bread and seed breed as well as the rolls. I have to say the rolls were my favourite by far. They were a good size, good texture and good flavour. They tasted filling which I often think can lack from a wheat-free roll especially if it is also dairy free. They had a “bread-like” texture and I like the seeds in them too. I found the bread best when it was toasted as it was a little dry as bread. The white bread for the most part was good, but there were a good few slices which had fallen apart or the crust was coming off, so that was a little off-putting. The seeded bread was also very nice and great toasted. So, my favourite were the rolls, followed by the seeded brown bread, followed by the brown bread and lastly the white bread. I see they do wraps, so would be very interested in trying them if they are wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free wraps.
