Everyone wants to have quick and easy lunches and snacks. Just because you cannot eat gluten doesn’t mean that you cannot have quick meals too! That is why I am giving you the best gluten free breads to narrow down your choices. For some of us, gluten isn’t the only thing that we don’t eat, so seeing that some are soy free, nut free and egg free are an extra bonus.
Best Gluten Free Bread
It is important to figure out what makes the best gluten free bread for you. Sometimes it is just the cost, sometimes it the overall ingredients if you are allergic or cannot eat other ingredients or it could just be the texture and taste of the bread.
Once you decide what YOUR important factors are, you can find the best fit for you and your family. If you have kids, you know that they can be really picky about eating ANYTHING. That means that whatever they like, you will buy.
Best Tasting Gluten Free Bread
The best tasting gluten free bread would have a nice chewy yet soft texture, with a fresh, yeasty sweetness. No one likes the dry and holey piece of bread that is tasteless. But I know I have had so many different brands that just did not taste good at all. So that is why I wanted to give you my three best tasting gluten free breads to assess for yourself.
I am going to focus on sandwich bread brands to really narrow down the sandwich options for easy picking.

Good Gluten Free Bread
Let’s use a score card with criteria to figure out what is good gluten free bread. Like I said, the texture and taste of the bread are super important. Texture will get a good score if it is fluffy bread. For size, if it is super tiny than it will get a lower score. Price is tricky, because every budget is different, and we really cannot compare it to the gluten filled bread prices. The price score will have to be based on the comparable gluten free breads. Taste will get a low score if it is dry with no flavour.
Criteria: Texture, size of slice of bread, price and taste
Scoring: 1 is the lowest possible score and 5 is the highest possible score.

What is The Best Gluten Free Bread?
Based on my scoring the best gluten free bread is the ODoughs Gluten-Free White Bread Loaf, with second being Three Bakers 7 Ancient Grain and third being the Dr. Schar Artisan Baker Gluten-Free White Bread.
I loved the overall texture, size and price of the ODoughs white loaf and it was great for regular sandwiches and for yummy toasted tomatoes and bacon sandwiches!
Tips on getting the Best Price for Gluten Free Bread
You can purchase these products on-line and wait until there is a sale and get a bigger quality. I usually purchase 5 or more loaves at a time and freeze them for when I want them. The only downside of freezing is that it does sometimes compromise the dryness of the loaf of bread. I guess you cannot win all of the gluten free bread battles, but I love to save money.
