BFree keep on expanding their range, which is great news, because the products are a great addition if you are following a wheat-free or gluten-free diet. The first new product I tried was their Stone Baked Pitta Breads. Now, before getting into the details on these, remember that it’s very hard to find a nice and tasty gluten-free pitta bread. I’m usually left disappointed after spending €3 on 4 hard, tasteless pittas and ones that won’t even open once toasted! That’s even after trying the “sprinkle water on them before popping into toaster” trick! So, I was wondering what these would taste like. I was pleasantly surprised. They are soft, which made a massive difference to previous brands I’ve tried. Just pop them in the toaster and they open nicely, fill with your choice of fillings and voila, a tasty pitta full of goodness. The texture is great and the stone-baked gives it a good flavour too. They have no added sugar, are high in fibre, low in fat and vegan friendly into the bargain, You can also use them as pizza bases and make mini pizzas, very handy, especially for kids. Available at Supervalu, Centra and Dunnes Stores and retail at €3.49.
The other new product I tried is the Quinoa and Chia Seed Wraps with Teff and Flax Seeds. If you know their multigrain wraps, these are a posher version! Using a different grain, quinoa plus chia, teff an flax seeds, these wraps are full of nutrients and fibre and a good source of protein. I preferred these to the multigrain wrap, they had more substance to them and are a better texture in my opinion. I like the fact that they used different grain so gives your diet a variety. These are ideal for lunch or can also be used as a thin pizza base.
Both of these products are a good addition to the BFree range and are worth buying. If I had to choose which of these products to put into my shopping basket, I would pick the pittas.
