Warburtons Gluten Free Bread

As I’ve never bought Warburtons bread in any form before, the news they were launching a gluten free range didn’t excite me in the way it did my fellow gluten free bloggers who were more familiar with the company and its products.

I’ve seen quite a lot of traffic on Twitter and other blogs about ‘Warbies’. Some positive but also quite a lot less than keen. I’m not sure I’ve seen a gluten free product with such divided opinion.

I was intrigued…..

My local Waitrose had the brown and white sliced loaves in stock as well as some white rolls. Thinking ahead to the summer and BBQs (well a girl’s gotta dream, right?!) I decided to go for the rolls.

I was really attracted to the rustic and almost crusty looking exterior of the bread.

But as soon as I sliced it in half, it was clear we had a problem. It crumbled, big time.

As I tried to eat it, it simply disintegrated in my hands. This would definitely not be a bread I could take for a picnic lunch on our final Thames towpath walk.

Unfortunately, I really disliked the taste as much as the texture. Sorry, but I won’t be buying this again.

Are there any positives? Well, yes. Warburtons have invested in a dedicated gluten and wheat free bakery to manufacture their gluten free goods so there is no chance of cross contamination. They also have plans to market both a gluten and wheat free crumpet and a tea cake. I’d like to try these and really hope they don’t suffer from the same crumbly issues, as well as having a vastly improved flavour than the Warburtons gluten free bread.
