Maybe this will encourage others to bring their price down too...

is it milk free also?

Great news, the question of course is does it taste like cardboard?

To be honest I always toast gf bread so can't comment.

anyone have an ingredient list?

It's pathetic the price of gf bread, shouldn't be any more than wheat bread imo. Gluten isn't good for anyone imo, we should have a choice and not have to pay a premium.
Next best thing to this is sainsbury stoneground organic wholemeal bread(800g) £1.
Half the ingredients of others.

Cheers, great price, will give it a whirl if it's wheat free as well.

Yes but how long will they stock it? Aldi have a habit of stocking lines for a few months then dropping the item. Used to get potato bread from there now I have to get it from one of the big supermarkets.

If it doesn't sell well they won't keep stocking it

For the health conscience;
Tesco's and health shops stock Biona rye bread - gluten free, no added yeast. wheat etc. Different variations; added Quinoa for example.
It's very flaky though

Great, about time prices came down for gluten free bread. Prices are crazy and unfair, bring it in aldi!

How do you spot a girl on a gluten free diet at a party?

Don't worry, she'll come and tell you.

It is isn't Gluten Free and would make you very ill if you were a Coeliac.

Couldn't help but laugh at that, and I have the condition!

I really like Asda free-from 600g brown sliced bread. It's also only £1.75 at my local Asda, although stock levels can be variable.

I hope you were joking there..

Not joking at all. A lot of 'gluten free' stuff has gluten in. Only things that state gluten free AND wheat free are completely free of gluten.

You come on a money saving site without a basic understanding of supply and demand?

Good to see a bit of healthy competition in the market. A quick look at any of the free from range prices in Tesco immediately makes me feel sorry for those who HAVE to pay through the nose for these types of specialist food.

I'd advise those who buy it to spread the word and get people into Aldi if you want to keep seeing it on the shelf and have an alternative option to the expensive major supermarket range.

the best gluten free bread is the one you make yourself with a bread maker nothing nicer than fresh bread had all the different brands even back in the old days when it came in a round tin. but glad to see others bringing prices down.

Right then here is the ingredient list for Aldi's bread:-
Water, rice flour, tapioca starch, powdered cellulose, hydroprophyl, carboxy methyl cellulose, xanthan gum, maize starch, yeast, tapioca flour, psyillium husk powder, potato starch, rapeseed oil, wholegrain maize flour, egg white powder, inverted sugar syrup, rice starch, salt, preservatives, sodium propionate, sorbic acid, rice bran extract, starter culture.
I enjoyed the white bread, toasted for my brekkie today...
Aldi did sell Genius bread for a time but their price was a £1 cheaper than Tesco and Sainsburys, it goes without saying that Tesco's were not chuffed at this !

Wrong. As of January 2013 under EU law, if you want to label something as gluten free it has to contain < 20ppm gluten.

But it has still got gluten in. How am I wrong?

I once subscribed to a 13 part magazine subscription about IBS ...the advice in them was rubbish ...but luckily part one came with a free ring binder oO

Gluten free contains gluten? Ridiculous. Next you'll be saying unlimited broadband can be limited!

I cannot understand why they need to add so much rubbish to this - I make my own and do not need half of all this. Just because we have coeliac disease doesn't mean we want to eat powdered cellulose, hydroprophyl, carboxy methyl cellulose etc when all we want is a slice of bread that's edible.

Wheat is gluten? If its gluten free its wheat free

Wheat is gluten? If its gluten free its wheat free



if only it was that simple, there are various definitions of GF last time i checked it was 50 parts per million in the uk, some countries define it as low as 15 parts per million.
so according to that wheat starch which has been treated to remove most of the gluten can be classed as gluten free.
Some coeliacs are extremely sensitive to gluten (if they are lucky) and will show symptoms or distress even at these low levels.

Yeah, they've changed the law recently. I really think they should have made it so that 'gluten free' means 'this product is completely free of gluten', rather than 'this product contains gluten, but really low levels, so you should be okay'.

Madness.

Confusing, misleading madness.

Hope this does well so Aldi bring out a seeded loaf with a bit of flavour, the Warburtons Newburn Bakehouse seeded loaf is the tastiest I can find but expensive just like Genius.

My mother in law is coeliac. She appears to get her gluten free bread on prescription... for those of you in a part of the uk without prescription charges this would surely be the better 'deal'.

Rye Bread may be wheat free, but it is definitely not Gluten-Free

people are told bull about bread,people are stupid and uneducated and believe anything there told.
people make too much money from wheat,its nothing to do with supply and demand,most of it is sold at loss and subsidised like corn.

but i forgot your way superior that me and most others in life,because you know all about me

ALDI have a seeded version as well as the white... it's probably the best I've ever tasted and apparently is now in all UK stores. Great price, let's hope it sells and they keep it.

This is very good news. GF bread is very overpriced (I'm looking at you, Tossco) so well done Aldi for breaking the mould. I'd encourage all coeliacs to give the Aldi bread a try.
