I don't know how I heard about Genius Bread, but when I tried it I loved it - so did my daughter, who's 13 years old and also gluten intolerant. My personal Gluten / Wheat Free journey started back in December 2007 when I ended up having an anaphylaxis to it!! I'd ignored months of signs from my body saying "stop filling me up with gluten / wheat!" What started out with water blister type rashes on my knees / shoulders / elbows (I now know to be Dermatitis Herpetiformis - the skin manifestation of Coeliac Disease), then breathlessness whenever I ate a spam muffin - gross I know - but being a busy Theatre Recovery Nurse - you grabbed what ...

I am so glad that this product is on dooyoo so I'm able to review it, I really think people should know about it. My son (aged 3) has coeliac disease, and for those who don't know about this, it means that he can have no gluten whatsoever in his diet, ever. Gluten is found in wheat and barley and other cereals. So that means special bread, special pasta etc etc etc. He was diagnosed at just about 2 years old, so he is more fortunate than other coeliac sufferers as he doesn't remember what 'real' bread tastes like. Since diagnosis, he's been using one of the other main brands of gluten free bread. It is, typically for this type of product, bland, very crumbly, ... Read the complete review

As any Coeliac will tell you gluten free bread is generally pretty poor. It tastes heavy and has the consistency of a brick, but recently a product arrived which has made a big difference in our household, this is Gluten Free bread which is available in white or wholemeal. Lucinda Bruce-Gardyne created the bread using a wide range of flours for her kids to enjoy and has subsequently marketed the product via Tesco where the bread is apparently baked and then sent to store the same day, it has a short shelf life but is the closest I have ever tasted to real bread and doesn't collapse when you cut it. A 400g loaf costs £2.49, it was only ... Read the complete review

Being wheat and lactose intolerant, I've tried many wheat free breads, but they are usually awful. Wheat free breads have a tendency to be thick, stodgy, tasteless and not worth the high price you have to pay for them. I would sit at work looking longingly at my colleague's sandwiches, with the smell of lovely bread wafting my way. Then one weekend I was watching BBC News when they started interviewing a woman called Lucinda Bruce-Gardyne. Lucinda wanted her son to be able to enjoy "soldiers" with his boiled egg just like other kids, but because of his restricted diet he couldn't. She made it her mission to create a fresh gluten free bread that ... Read the complete review

I simply had to add to the reviews already on this bread as it truly is one of the best gluten free breads out there - everyone who needs it should try it!! I have tried loads and whenever a brand attempts to make gluten free sliced bread it always crumbles, tastes weird and generally needs a lot of toasting and jam to make it palatable! This bread however is completely different - it actually tasted fine when not toasted (shock horror) and when toasted it truly tastes and smells like normal bread - i was so impressed!! Ham sarnies here we come! It is a lot lighter than normal bread (similar to something like weight watchers might produce) but otherwise i ... Read the complete review
