Gluten Free Fresh Bread: Go ASDA!

Competition for the best gluten free fresh bread is hotting up!Dietary Specials Fresh Bread

Just when you’ve got used to seeing fresh gluten free bread on the shelves at Tesco, there’s a competitor coming along… This is all good news for people who have to live gluten free. It improves choice, provides healthy competition and publicises the issue. Hurrah!

Dietary Specials are announcing their new gluten- and wheat-free fresh breads, available in ASDA. Each is 400g, and is either a soft white loaf, suitable for sandwiches, or a multi-seeded bread using linseed, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. I love a seeded loaf myself, though I know my daughter would probably prefer a plain white. I don’t know of another seeded fresh gluten free bread, do you?

Being fresh bread, this doesn’t need toasting or refreshing – another bonus. And I’m really pleased that these fresh breads are becoming available in supermarkets, which makes it much easier for people to cater for my daughter.

And apparently, these loaves will be available at £1.50 until the end of October (so act fast!). I’m looking forward to testing this bread, though we haven’t an ASDA near us, so I’ll have to look out for one over half-term – do let us know what you think of the bread if you find it first…

  1. Both the new Dietary Specials breads(one White& one Multi Seeded) are delicious,they taste great-Freeze well(though the first 2 never reached the freezer)A decent sized slice-so a decent sizes sandwich!! its now £2 but worth every penny–they are coming to our Gluten Free Food Fayre at Penrith tomorrow 7th Nov..cant wait to “stock up”

  2. Hi Jean – thanks for letting us know what you thought.

    I hope your GF Food Fayre goes well. We love going to those things, but Penrith is perhaps just a little too far…

  3. I would like to know what is the difference between Asda gluten free white rolls and Asda gluten free brown rolls. Our grandaughter can only tolerate the brown ones and we are wondering if it is something in the white rolls or the flour processing which she has an intolerance to. Also can we obtain these rolls on prescription? It is a very expensive business living on gluten free. There are lots of gluten/wheat free products on prescription but many of them have the same nasty effects as products containing wheat/gluten. Please can you help?

  4. my husband recently gluten free twice havecalled into asda and nowhite bread in stock spoke to man on bread counter he was not really helpful are we able to orderthis at all please.

  5. I bought free from brown bread on Thursday. When I opened it over half the slices were breaking up and could not be used. I am a pensioner and cannot afford £2 for a loaf that I am unable to use. I am very dissapointed with the quality of Asda wheat free bread.

  6. I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble with bread from Asda. Usually I hear good things about shopping gluten free at Asda.

    I too find it frustrating when food is out of stock, or when the bread is unusable (and gluten free bread does, typically, break up very easily, doesn’t it?)

    I’m not associated with Asda at all. If you’d like to talk to them direct, please visit this page: You can email them, call them, or write them a letter.

  7. I so think ASDA (at the railway station, branch) could improve their provision of gluten/wheat free products. I was told by an assistant if I wanted a certain bread product I needed to be there early in the morning, I happen to be working then! Could I order one, to be picked up when I finish work? NO!!!
