Product Review: Namaste Foods Gluten Free Bread Mix

I have to confess. As soon as I could reintroduce small amounts of brown rice flour, I headed for the pre-packaged bread mixes. I love freshly baked bread. Even after freezing, it’s better than pre-baked. Still, I spend so much kitchen time preparing things other folks take for granted (gluten-free, lactose-free, FODMAP friendly!) that I’m willing to take the occasional shortcut if the product is tasty, healthy, and keeps well.

This bread mix is all three. The one-pound package produces a golden-white loaf that is tender and uniform in texture and freezes well after slicing. I wish it had more of a rich, whole-grain texture and color, but very few baked goods that aren’t honey-sweetened seem to manage that dark brown chewiness I loved about whole wheat bread. This makes good toast, breadcrumbs for meatballs or sausage, and is excellent for stuffing a chicken or turkey.

Contains brown rice flour, sorghum flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot flour, rice milk powder, evaporated cane juice [why can’t they just write “sugar”?], millet flour, salt, xanthan gum, and a yeast packet. You add 1 egg, 3 egg whites, ¼ cup oil, water. Prep time: 40 minutes, plus baking time of 70 minutes.
