Looking for a gluten free bread without potato starch? Here are 3 companies that have your back with everything from white bread to ciabatta rolls, baguettes, wraps, and even a hamburger bun.
I wrote about the frustration of finding nightshade free options in the gluten free world when I shared 4 different gluten free flour blends that were also nightshade free. Of all the products on the market (and there are HUNDREDS), there were a grand total of 5 (I learned about another product after writing the post) that didn’t contain potato starch.
Which I find to be quite interesting, as there are a lot of people out there who need to avoid gluten and nightshades. This goes for seemingly simple things like granola bars and gluten free pretzels, to the more complex breads and flour mixes.
Today I wanted to share the different companies who make gluten free bread without potato starch. It was a tall order, as most gluten free breads (and mixes, for that matter) use potato starch to help mimic the light and fluffy texture of their gluten containing counterparts. Thankfully, there are three companies out there who have figured out how to create a light, fluffy, and deliciously gluten free option without having to lean on potato starch. And with options like multigrain breads, ciabatta rolls, wraps, and hamburger buns, you really can’t go wrong!
Gluten Free Breads without Potato Starch from Canyon Bakehouse | emilylevenson.com
With a plethora of options to choose from like 7-Grain, Cinnamon Raisin, Mountain White, Deli Rye Style, Rosemary & Thyme Focaccia, and Hot Dog Buns, Canyon Bakehouse has been a favorite of mine when it comes to gluten free bread without potato starch. The breads are soft and spongy, and hold up well when making sandwiches or toasting it. Even if I could have potato starch, this would be my gluten free bread of choice.
Note: According to the website, the Hamburger Buns, Plain Bagels, and Everything Bagels do have potato flour in them, so please read labels carefully before buying.
Paleo Bread™ is a line of breads from Julian Bakery. They have a stockpile of foods and resources for those who are looking for low-carb Paleo and Ketogenic options. And they didn’t skimp on the flavor options, with an Almond, Coconut, Cinnamon Raisin, Honey, and coconut-based wraps for those who want a little something different. It’s a (low-carb) bread lovers dream with so many different options of gluten free bread without potato starch to choose from.
Schär Gluten Free Breads
I continue to come across Schär products in my quest to find the best gluten free products that are also nightshade free. Their gluten free bread lines are no different, with 7 different varieties of gluten free bread without potato starch. They make an Artisan Baker Multigrain, Artisan Baker White, Baguettes, Ciabatta (regular and multigrain), Hot Dog Rolls, and the coveted Hamburger Buns (FINALLY) that are devoid of potato starch. It seriously makes my gluten free and nightshade free heart happy.
