Good find
Thank you the prices are reasonable as well x
Just a pity Genius bread is more holes than bread in their sliced bread. Good prices though
good find op, heat added
Just reading their latest flyer with this mentioned in it.

I eat gluten free and it's nice to see new products to try out and add to what I can eat.

Sadly though Genius bread is hit or miss!

Hopefully my nearest store will have some stock.

To cut gluten from your diet, they have removed the bread.

Genius!
Sadly it appears to remove Gluten from your diet you have to replace it with junk food. Every single item in this deal is junk food. If you have a health complaint and have no option but to remove Gluten why eat a load of cr*p like this? Why not take it as an opportunity to revise your diet and eat as healthily as you can. Remove Gluten and replace it with obesity, diabetes and other metabolic disorders, sounds like a plan

Also for people on the Gluten free fad wagon, have a look at >

No one person in this world is entirely correct on diet as there's so much stuff we simply don't understand. Maybe some people will find value in those links.

Lastly some people want to eat junk food and that's their choice, so I'm not telling anyone what to do, just giving my take on healthy living.

​Appreciate this deal isn't filled with the healthiest items but your comment about removing gluten means you have to replace it with junk food like this is wrong, no one is saying you have to eat these as gf replacements, some of these are 'treats' (for want of a better phrase) which I'm pretty sure gf or not you don't sit around stuffing your face with all day every day. If you did it wouldn't matter if they're gf or not, or are you saying people who are gf free shouldn't have treat type foods? Your general comment about junk food could be leveled at anyone, gf or not. I think we're all hopefully smart enough to look into what we're eating, a treat once in a while doesn't hurt.
Do remember some people have a medical condition coeliac disease, they have no choice and have to buy gluten free food. Our processed options are not as healthy as they could be.

Fad or not, cutting or reducing gluten in your diet makes you feel better.

Fresh fruit and veg, pulses, meat and fish = the winner.

No you're misquoting me. I want to make this absolutely clear I didn't say that removing Gluten from your diet means you eat unhealthily. I'm stating the Gluten free products in this deal are junk food! and therefore if you use them as replacements you're not eating healthily. It's entirely possible to be Gluten free and eat in a healthy manner. Yes many people eat junk food and enjoy it, we all know it's not bad for you in moderation.

​Your first sentence says otherwise in your first post tbh. Out of interest, what would you use these foods as replacements for? Other 'junk' food? Your not going to replace fruit with gf macaroons are you? Which kind of moots your point.

No, they don't, you're wrong. In some areas you can get staples on prescription like bread, pasta, flour and oats. You pay for the prescriptions like everyone does unless you have a medical exemption certificate for another condition or are pregnant, on benefits etc.
I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss a gluten free diet as a fad. According to Coeliac UK, 1 in 100 have coeliac disease, so there are a lot of people who are unaware and maybe just feel a lack of energy. Cutting out gluten would allow their bodies to start absorbing nutrients properly and they would start to feel better.
Very good find! I will try and hopefully might find some nice things for my sister.
I found it on the app this morning and forwarded to my cousin, she was pleased with prices

Evolution.
I have colitis and the only thing that makes the condition bearable is a low fodmap diet, not a fad and scientificly proven to reduce flares.

Low fodmap has a lot of crossover with gluten free. I appreciate that people with celiac cannot have gluten at all whereas low fodmap is avoiding certain foods of which many contain gluten, but I don't appreciate being labeled as someone on a fad diet.
I wouldn't wish colitis, crohns or ibs on anyone and until low fodmap gains greater awareness then we'll have to settle for gluten free and promotions like this one are always welcome

Yes I completely forgot to mention low fodmap, for some reason I mentioned salicylates instead when I was thinking of fodmap

https://areyoutheresoy.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/low-fodmap.jpg

As I said there's so much we don't know, for example Bimuno powder is advised to be used to encourage healthy bacterial growth in the intestine and doesn't appear to cause gas, well here's an excerpt to explain it better >

"There is even evidence, for example, that the artificial transgalactans in Bimuno, are fermentable oligosaccharides that do not produce gas during fermentation and reduce bloating and abdominal pain (Silk et al, 2009). Instead they act as prebiotics encouraging the growth of bifidobacteria. The low FODMAP diet, by contrast, reduces bifidobacteria (Staudacher et al, 2012). Clearly, the implications of this run counter to the therapeutic principles of pre- and probiotics and will need further investigation and clinical experience."Source: foodsmatter.com/all…tml

So a low FODMAP diet discourages bifobacterial growth, yet bifobacteria are known to be healthy gut bacteria, clearly it depends on the person. This is where medicine fails totally at the moment, it's a case of one size fits all and doesn't take in to account the differing genetics of a person, their overall biochemistry and even the genetic diversity of their microbiome. Whilst I get somewhat overwhelmed by the technology of today, I think I'd rather have been born a 100 or even 200 years in the future as it's more likely we'll have medicine that is prescribed based on the above factors and maybe new factors that are unknown now. Of course the world could be a more sorry place in the future, I'll never know of course.

So we have gluten free diet of which we know it's beneficial for some people and low FODMAP diet, there's also low salicylate diet as well. Isn't this evidence enough that if you value your health you need to experiment, but base it on current science, what we know, so if you have a health problem that you think is related to diet, you could start with FODMAP or Gluten free or even low salicylate if you're feeling more experimental.

When I look at low FODMAP I see definite crossover with Paleo, seeds, grains, beans, legumes are not allowed on true Paleo, but their reasoning is the anti nutrients in those foods, most foods have anti nutrients, even the good old beverage tea has tanins which limit Iron absorption, but has antioxidant compounds ECGG and L-Theanine which are beneficial.

Another marketing BS is antioxidants, the body produces antioxidants itself, if you over supplement with anti oxidants, the resulting anti oxidant level eventually drops below baseline. So I don't look to actively supplement with anti oxidants, I choose food which has them in abundance but food is a package, with many synergistic compounds, nutrients and anti nutrients. Nature knows best because it's had billions of years to evolve synergy and symbiosis, way beyond currently what humans can create. We still have very primitive medicine currently.

Anyway I love all this stuff, I don't propose to be anywhere near an expert, it's just something I've studied and you really have to be prepared to change your stance as the evidence changes.

I hate how calling it gluten free is an excuse to charge ridiculous prices for items, when wheat flour is used as a filler on so many foods.

Also they call it gluten free because it's maize/rice/corn flour, it's not like an expensive process of removing the gluten from the wheat so why is everything x3 more costly in the big supermarkets.
all of this rubbish about whether a GF diet is faddish or not is missing the point.

It's great that Aldi are providing these products to those of us who, whilst not NEEDING them, like to have a sandwich or cake now and again. I hope they choose to restock regularly at my local.

What's even better is that they're doing it for roughly half the price of the other supermarkets.

Please keep your condescending know-it-all comments related to how good the DEAL is - rather than spouting homespun nutritional advice to people who know their conditions much better than you ever will.

Better than what?
BFree brown bread is great toasted, wheat, gluten, dairy, egg and soya free AND it tastes great compared to every alternative I have had the mis'fortune' of trying.

£2-£3.50 a day for me for BFree, 6 weeks trial and blood tests to get the bread script, I said a few days inpatient and you can feed me bread every meal...declined, 6 weeks lol, 3 days and I am bedbound.
PS) Tesco, Asda and Morrisons own tortilla chips are under 50p and gluten/crap free..



£1.29 LOL :P

they have also done a study showing 99% of people who post on forums about subjects they know nothing about also suffer from inferior genital formation
PPS) Soya flour is a major allergen now added to bread, check its not soya allergy if a blood test comes back clear for gluten.


After 6 weeks soya/soy free I had crispy aromatic duck, I ended up unable to even drink for pain over 5 days and ended up in A&E via the GP. Whole intestine was in a spasm, even water was F unbearable, I was in tears in A&E.

lol yes it is

seriously tho how can anyone prove GF is a fad diet or many do not need it, do they kidnap GF food purchasers and force stomach biopsy them?

My 1/3 of the size 6 times the price minimum BFree bread aint even 6 inches.

I know because all my food allergies cause stomach spasms, which I dont even need to feel and my asthma flares up badly, headaches, nausea, dizzy, legs giving way, cognitive function, fuzzy vision, migraines, constipation and the opposite, concentration..


Pork, dairy, eggs, wheat, gluten, preservatives, colourings...its a F nightmare trying to eat, on the go I have to default to ready salted crisps and Coke Life (coke causes stomach pain and asthma flare ups) as too much water causes spasms.


Corn pasta is £2 a bag.

Everyday is a nightmare, a bacon sandwich is grilled parma ham on BFree bread - about £4.50 for a bacon sandwich


I get really tired as I eat too much salad and my blood sugar drops due to a lack of carbs as £3-3.50 a day for a loaf! I'm £7-8 a day in bread and milk alternatives oO



They take blood and test after you eat 2-3 portions of bread for 6 weeks! They only do biopsy if they suspect stomach/intestine damage after the 6 weeks, the assumption is I have bad damage but I cant do the 6 week so no biopsy...
