Product Review: Namaste gluten free bread mix – GFCF

Posted on | October 29, 2008 | 3 Comments

I am looking for a great gluten free bread mix or simple gluten free bread recipe to use. I have yet to find a bread that I love that will satisfy my sandwich cravings. Since Namaste’s pizza crust is pretty good, I thought I’d give their bread mix a try.  I purchased this bread mix for $4.99 at my local grocery store and it makes one fairly large loaf of gluten free bread.

I mixed this gluten free bread mix with eggs, oil and water in my Kitchen-aid mixer and smoothed it in a bread pan with a spatula. I found the bread dough easy to handle and smooth in the pan- not too sticky . After baking, I let the bread cool completely and cut it with an electric bread knife. I was excited to see how easy the bread was to slice. I noticed very little crumbling or breakage. Plus, this bread seemed very soft and moist with a solid, crunchy crust. So far, so good.

I made a grilled chicken sandwich with tomato and lettuce, and was instantly disappointed. I found the bread to be almost too moist, because it tasted thick and mealy, and it stuck to the roof of my mouth, although texture seemed fairly smooth with lots of nooks and crannies. The bread also turned mushy and could not support the chicken and tomato in my sandwich. How frustrating! On the bright side the flavor seemed very mild like a traditional white bread and would pair well with most spreads and sandwich ingredients. I also discovered that this bread mix tastes best the next day and was slightly better toasted.

Rating: 3 stars

Pros: Moist, slices easily, mild flavor

Cons: turns mushy in sandwiches, falls a part

Ingredients: brown rice flour, sorghum flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot flour, rice milk powder, organic evaporated cane juice, toasted amaranth bran flour, xanthan gum, sea salt, yeast packet.

    You should try their pancake/waffle mix. It is the best. I even have gluten eating friends buying this mix because the wafffles come out great. I make the whole batch with an older waffle iron, it makes 4 waffles at once that are thinner, like the ones you would find in the freezer section at the grocery store. I freeze the waffles, and when someone wants one for breakfast, they pull it out of the freezer and pop it in the toaster, it fits perfectly. Easy as pie. A lot of people must like this mix, because it is gone most of the time when I go to the grocery store.

    I agree with Jennifer, the pancake/waffle mix is heavenly! I make the pancakes and freeze the leftovers, they freeze perfectly! I also would like to give a shout out to one of their cake mixes…the spice cake mix is my favorite of all gluten free cake mixes. I add carrots to it, and top it off with some cream cheese icing, it’s great. Give it a try sometime, and let me know what you think.
