Bread Products

I actually had a little break in between classes and had the idea that I should update my list of allergy friendly bread products to write my blog post about bread. So I took a trip to several stores to make the ultimate list of bread that you can eat. Bread sounds like it would be easy to find since you can just make it with flour and water, but it’s not. Most bread products are made with soy bean oil. So if you are allergic to soy you have probably been really frustrated with what bread is available for you to buy at the grocery. On top of that, a lot of loafs of bread can be really moldy. So it is even more frustrating when you have to spend $4 or $5 on a soy free loaf than the price of the cheapest loaf of bread which can cost only $1. To make my list of products I visited Jewel, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Aldi’s, Dominick’s (a Safeway store) and Caputo’s. What I have discovered over the years is that pasta and pita bread instead of a loaf are really good options. One can also buy a bread machine to make one’s own bread. However, I have found that those loaves are not strong enough for a sandwich and will fall apart easily. The ingredients of the following products may vary. Some of them do have Soy Lecithin in them. This form of soy is supposed to not cause an allergic reaction. I have eaten it in products for years without a problem, even though I am allergic to soy. Some of the products also do have oats in them, which some people are allergic too. To find these products you need to check the main areas and the organic, all natural, or gluten free sections. Some are a lot more expensive than others. Now you do not need to walk around and check the ingredients of every package like I did, but I do recommend that you check out your local bread bakeries, too, and always double check the ingredients to make sure that they have not changed.
