Sally Lunn VS Glutino
Let me tell you about gluten free bread: it sucks. It’s Nerf bread and if you open a loaf that you have purchased at any store – you must eat it quickly. The shelf life of processed gf bread is so very, very short. Let me tell you about having Celiac and wanting nothing more than a simple sammich: it sucks. I refuse to buy gf bread and have chosen to make it instead but someone recommended Glutino to me so I gave it a whirl.
Before I go any further – look at the picture above and take notice of the differences in texture and color. The Sally Lunn bread has the texture of good ol’ crusty bread, yum! The Glutino bread is different in not only texture and color, but taste as well. It’s dense with lots of moisture and lots of holes – I think I’ll make some french toast out of it tomorrow because it looks like it can handle it.
I have learned something about my new bread machine as well – there are beeps to let you know when to take out the dough and reshape and remove the paddle so my next loaf of Sally Lunn won’t look as weird as my first one. I hope to do lots of experimentation
So…my gf Sally Lunn VS Glutino Favorite Sandwich Bread review:
I like both. For the Sally Lunn, you must have all of the ingredients, including yeast. The Glutino comes with the just the flour and the yeast. In a pinch, having the Glutino around is super easy because I’ve always got eggs and butter – but in a pinch, I have to make sure I have all of the ingredients for the gf flour as well, so convenience-wise – Glutino wins. Plus, I like different breads for different meals – so the Glutino would be awesome for french toast and peanut butter and jellly sammies, but the Sally Lunn is great for lunch meats and garlic toast.
They are both delicious, but I would have to say that my preference is Sally Lunn. Try them both and let me know your results – I’d love to hear from you!
