Abbott’s Village Bakery is now selling gluten free bread.

Available in either Soy & Linseed or Mixed Seed varieties, Abbott’s Village Bakery says its gluten free bread is large in size and not crumbly, issues consumers often cite with gluten free breads.

Maddison Fox, nutritionist for Abbott’s Village Bakery, said with more Australians choosing to reduce the amount of gluten in their diet, Abbott’s Village Bakery wanted to develop a gluten free option which still tastes and feels like bread.

“We found the main point of tension with gluten free breads was the tendency for the slices to be smaller and more crumbly,” she said.

“We wanted to create a gluten free loaf that matched regular breads in taste without sacrificing the soft texture that we are all used to. Plus it was really important to offer sandwiches that you can eat with two hands!”

The soy and linseed option contains a mixture of kibbled soy, linseed, chia and quinoa. Abbott’s Village’s gluten free mixed seeds consists of sunflower, linseed, pumpkin, chia and poppy seeds. Both varieties are available now from Woolworths, selected Coles and selected independent retailers. The recommended retail price is AUD $6.99 for one loaf.

Abbott’s Village Bakery is owned by George Weston Foods, an Australian subsidy of Associated British Foods. George Weston Foods owns a number of other food brands including Tip Top, Don, Jasol, Burgen and Golden.
