Are you or the kids on a limited diet, but want to keep it healthy? Don’t know where to start with substitutions? I’ve been doing this for years, and have the whole range of intolerances in my house… let me help you!
- Wheat and gluten
Like most wheat-based breads, gluten-free breads are often full of preservatives (watch out for 280 – 283, as these cause nasty reactions in sensitive kids). The Burgen gluten-free loaves are free from those preservatives, and the bread sticks together nicely for sandwiches (thanks to the sugar, no doubt!). Find that one in Woolies. Check labels and look for wholegrains and seeded varieties for a little more nutrition, like sorghum, buckwheat, brown rice, millet, quinoa. Dovedale is a good natural brand, which makes nice toast (bit dry for sandwiches though). That one is in Coles.
I make my own these days, using a gluten-free bread recipe from The Holistic Ingredient, that’s quick and easy.
