Bread – Sponsored by Udi's




Smart Eats & Treats Seeded Loaf

'Lovely artisan loaf. Not good for sandwiches but great flavour and list of ingredients. Moist and slightly spicy – a tasty savoury loaf.'






FocaccatteTesco Free From Garlic Baguette

'WOW – milk, eggs and gluten free!  Very tasty – you would really never tell the difference between this and a standard shop-bought garlic bread – soft crumb with a nice crunchy crust. Looks great – kids would just love this!'



Highly Commended

BFree Soft White Rolls

'A little bit dry (but good toasted) and fantastic to be free of five major allergens. Nice basic white roll – good size for packed lunches and a great burger bun alternative.'

BFree Quinoa and Chia Seed Wrap with Teff and Flax Seeds

'Nice appearance and great range of ingredients – not too chewy when cooled and great flavours.'


BFree Brown Seeded Loaf

'Nice texture, nice taste, nice seed. Love that it is free from gluten, milk, egg, nuts and soya.  Doesn't fall apart making it good for sandwiches. A soft-bake, good alternative brown bread.'

Dr Schar Panini Rolls 

'I Iike the concept of a gluten-free panini. It is nice warmed up, and it doesn't have a strong flavour so good with a filling. Fantastic that it is free from so much – great option for those with multiple allergies.'
