Abbott’s Village Bakery launches gluten free bread
As the number of Australians allergic to or avoiding wheat-based products rises, so too does the need for gluten free options to be just like regular bread.
“With more and more Australians opting to reduce the amount of gluten in their diet, we wanted to develop a tasty, soft and satisfying gluten free loaf that still tasted and felt like bread, yet suited the dietary needs of those following a gluten free diet,” said Maddison Fox, Abbott’s Village Bakery’s nutritionist and accredited practising dietitian.
“We found the main point of tension with gluten free breads was the tendency for the slices to be smaller and more crumbly. We wanted to create a gluten free loaf that matched regular breads in taste without sacrificing the soft texture that we are all used to. Plus it was really important to offer sandwiches that you can eat with two hands.”
The Soy & Linseed bread contains a mixture of Kibbled Soy, Linseed, Chia and Quinoa. The Mixed Seeds loaf contains carefully selected ingredients and is baked with Sunflower, Linseed, Pumpkin, Chia and Poppy Seeds. Both breads are high in fibre with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and are gluten free.
Abbott’s Village Bakery Gluten Free bread range is available in Woolworths, selected Coles and independent retailers at an RRP of $6.99.
