Finding gluten and yeast free breads (not loaded with additives) is a real challenge and one that until Artisan Bread contacted me I had given up on. Yesterday my first proper order from Artisan Bread bread arrived with two types of bread; linseed bread and quinoa bread, also my two buckwheat pizza bases, so there were lots of products to try. My delivery arrived just in time for my early morning snack so I quickly opened up my packet of linseed bread to give it a try.
I have not had any form of bread for a long time so this was just heaven. To have a proper slice of bread topped with dairy free spread and St Dalfours sugar free fruit spread was divine, then when I tried a slice with almond butter…. mmmmMmmm.
Linseed Bread Ingredients: Wholegrain rice flour and demeter whole rice (51%), revitalised filtered water, fresh ground whole organic linseed (9%), natural leaven (gluten free) and see salt.
“Our leaven is made with baking ferment, developed for people with intolerance to sourdough and bakers dough yeast. It is made from naturally gluten free organic flour and honey in very small quantities, these are fully assimilated during the long fermentation and are therefore not present in the finished bread.”
Linseed Bread comes in a small loaf (400g) and is £3.05.
I have to say I loved it with it’s slight moist texture similar to rye breads I have eaten in the past, but much softer in the mouth. The linseed bread has a fantastic depth of flavour which makes it a great combo with any sweet or savoury combo. Artisan Bread advise not to toast this bread however the quinoa bread is suitable for toasting so I will update how I get on with that (Sugar Free Baked Beans on toast comes to mind). So happy that bread is on the menu again!
