Hello and welcome to ThreeChannels.

GF/CF Friday: Glutino Flax Seed Bread

Every Friday, I will review a Gluten Free/Casein Free (GF/CF) product from the perspective of my 6-year-old, Edward, who has been on the GF/CF diet for 6 months.  I personally have spent a small fortune trying GF/CF fare from countless grocery stores, health food stores and online venues.  Many of my choices have been met with Edward’s great disdain and disgust.  A few, however, had moved on to to become treasured favorites.  It is my hope that these reviews will save others the pain and expense of throwing away $6.00 loaves of bread and $3.00 cookies!  Enjoy!


“It looks like an ant sundae.”

“It is disgusting and smells rotten.  It looks like a thousand germs have been spread on it.”

He will not eat this product.  Maybe I should throw it away, or perhaps conduct tests to see if birds will eat it.  It cost $6.99.  Beware!

Have to agree.. gluten free bread is dreadful!!!

You should post your reviews on Epinions.com and make some $$ from them too!!!

Also, I hope you don’t mind but I love your blog and just added a link to it on mine!!! Seems we have quite a bit in common.

Oh, oh, oh! I am going to ask my hubbie if he still has the recipe for a gluten free flour mixture that we got from an old friend of mine. Are you interested? Do you bake? If so, shoot me an email. My friend used to make amazingly effective muffins and pie crusts with the stuff.

We are not gluten free but we do have allergies so we’ve done some testing to see if gluten was a culprit. We’re now dairy, nut, and seed free. I feel your pain! Good for you for listening to your guy & his inner food critic!

I beg to differ. I have been GF for some time, and this was my favorite bread. I used to bake my own but don’t have the time.
It is good toasted and goes well with GF burgers from Franklin.

Try Ian’s GF french bread pizza and fish sticks.

GF will never taste as good as wheat based – sorry.

make sure you watch out for wheat in soy sauce, especially at restaurants – try La Choy
