Ener-G White Rice Flax Loaf Gluten Free -- 16 oz
Not what I was expecting.
This bread was dry and I didn't care for the taste. I have tried other GF breads so I know they are more dense and not as moist as regular bread. I really like most of the products I order from Vitacost but I can't give this one a high rating.

Best Gluten-Free Bread
After years of trying countless brands of gluten-free breads, I pretty much gave up looking. But, when I tried this one, I couldn't believe how good it was. My frustration was over!
This bread has the closest texture to wheat-flour based bread I've ever tried. It's not flaky, crumbly, or mealy; it doesn't taste like cardboard, nor is it too sweet -- as many gluten-free breads do/are.
Plus, with ground flax in it, it's nutrient-healthy, too. Though primarily made of white rice flour, I believe it's the ground flax that makes this bread look like whole wheat bread, and which also gives it a welcome density of weight and flavor (but not too dense or too heavy, and it doesn't taste 'flaxy' either).
Though not organic, there are no preservatives or chemicals in this bread.
For me, all these factors make this bread far superior to nutrient-shallow, gluten-free breads. And at a price significantly cheaper through VitaCost, compared to most health food stores (many of which don't even carry this particular loaf).
Added benefit: you can stock up on these because the brand's special inner-packaging liner extends the shelf-life of the bread for up to a year or more. Amazing and true! (Be sure to discard this inner liner, though, before freezing or refrigerating the bread. Do read the package instructions.)
My gluten-free bread search is over! THANKS VITACOST!!

Light and tasty
Most gluten free products are heavy and hard... This one is not. A great tasting bread with healthy benefits. The whole family loves it!

Would not buy agaln
This bread came in a plastic cover inside a plastic bag with a preserver package inside. Good...so I had open bread and put both of these in the freezer. When I got one out in small warning on the side it says do not freeze in orig packaging or bread would dry and crumble and that's what it did. Why not red bold letters on top? Regardless of the tgexture it has a weird medicinal taste. Other brands for the same price at the grocery store are much better......Will not buy again!

There are better GF breads out there
This gluten free bread is ok. It comes out of the package pretty dry, so you have to toast it to make it taste ok. There are certainly better products out there such as Udi's bread that taste better. Udi's is just a little bit more expensive. Although Udi's has a shorter shelf life (like regular gluten bread). This Ener-G bread has a long shelf life, and is good to keep on the shelf for emergencies.
