Here in Derbyshire we call it a cob but I won't get into that debate today, I will go universal (I think) with white roll. Whatever we call it there are some very nice rolls sitting on the shelf of Tesco.
After trying quite a few bread products as we 'free formers' do, I have found Tesco's own brand to be my favourite and at a good price too. I have been making a few packed lunches for myself just lately and these rolls are just so soft and stay together quite nicely. I can also recommend their white sliced bread as well, it seems thicker than some other brands and also tends stay together quite well. I say it 'stays together' referring to the fact that when the gluten is absent from bread it then tends to lack that elasticity that makes it stick together and therefore leads to major crumbling. I have had some bread that literally just falls to pieces as soon as I take it out of the packet.
I do find that freezing gluten free bread tends to work, I don't tend to use it alot so I just keep it in the freezer and take a roll or slices out as and when I need them. I have previously kept bread in the fridge as well as this also tends to hold it together. Anything for an easy life eh?
It does tend to be the one subject that everyone seems to bring up a lot, the first thing that is mentioned when someone says gluten free, comments such as 'oh the bread is terrible and so expensive'. Most gluten free products are expensive and I do wish it would be reduced in price.
These white rolls from Tesco are priced at £1.75 for 4 and details can be found on their website here:
The white sliced bread is £2.00 for a 550g loaf and details can also be found on Tesco's website here:
I can definitely recommend them for sandwiches and the white rolls really are very nice, good for popping a burger into as well as it's barbecue season now.
I hope that helps a little, of course there are many other gluten free bread products available, this is just what I have found to be my favourite choice right now.
Thank you for reading and I will return tomorrow for my regular Autism support feature 'Autism Support Saturday', funnily enough because it's about Autism and I write about it on a Saturday. Funny that eh? I amaze myself sometimes.
Take care for now.......
