Published by Finn Hayden

Bread is one of the most common sources of gluten, and for years if you wanted to avoid gluten then it meant ditching bread for good. But nowadays, there is so much amazing gluten free bread to choose from at the supermarket and online that it can actually be hard to know which to choose. We thought it would be useful to round up the best gluten free bread we've tried and tested, and we whittled it down to 7 amazing options. Let's get into it:

We thought it would be useful to round up the best gluten free bread we've tried and tested, and we whittled it down to 7 amazing options. Obviously, companies like The Gluten Free Bakery create gluten free bread which is on another level, but the options we've included this guide are all products you can buy from your local supermarket. Let's get into it:

Warburtons Gluten Free Artisan Tiger Bloomer

We wanted to start with this tiger bloomer from Warburtons because we immediately wanted to prove that gluten free bread can be delicious and exciting - this tiger bloomer has a delicious softness on the inside and a perfectly crunchy crust. It's ideal for pairing with soups and stews and goes great with a good wedge of nice butter.

We're really excited to see a big brand like Warburtons producing lots of gluten free bread, and we could have included a few of the other gluten free loaves from Warburtons in this guide. But we definitely think the tiger bloomer is the best of the bunch. Learn more and buy it here - sainsburys.co.uk

Genius soft white loaf 

We'd credit Genius with being one of the first brands to start creating delicious gluten free bread, and for helping to prove that bread without gluten can taste delicious and doesn't need to have a texture like cardboard. The Genius range of products features everything from wraps to pancakes, but we still think that the classic Soft White Farmhouse loaf from Genius is probably the best product from the range.

BFree brown seeded loaf

BFree is a brand that we've featured a few times across our site, including recently in our low calorie wraps guide. The brand manages to make delicious food which is free from all sorts of allergens, not just gluten. This brown seeded loaf from BFree is really tasty and is made using ground buckwheat and seeds like flax and sunflower seeds, which gives it a really nice texture.

Schnitzer gluten free organic ciabatta olive

A few years ago, the idea of having something as delicious as this would have been a totally alien concept to most people trying to avoid gluten. But the team at Schnitzer have managed to create this gluten free ciabatta which is totally delicious, and organic too. Serving this with a good olive oil and a delicious drizzle of balsamic vinegar is the perfect pairing. Learn more and buy it here - naturalgrocery.co.uk

New York Bakery Co gluten free bagels

If you like your bread to be a bit more circular, then you definitely need to check out the gluten free bagels from the New York Bakery Co - these are absolutely delicious and are perfect to pair with salmon and cream cheese, or something sweeter if you prefer. You only get 4 in a pack which is the only downside, but these bagels taste so good that we're willing to forgive the New York Bakery Co. Learn more and buy them here - waitrose.com

Tesco Finest gluten free white cob (with sourdough) 

You can buy a standard loaf of Tesco Free From bread which contains zero gluten, but unlike the Tesco Free gluten free tagliatelle which we really enjoyed, the standard Tesco Free From bread wasn't so great in our opinion. However, this gluten free white cob from Tesco, which is made with sourdough, was seriously good and really impressed us. It was only slightly more expensive than the standard Free From loaf, but we thought it was much tastier and well worth the extra £1 or so. Learn more and buy it here - tesco.com
