Cool! I've just told my mum about this - time to stock up, most of this stuff is quite expensive

Hot - but it is much cheaper to get Genius bread on prescription with an annual pre-payment certificate.

Genius bread may be better than most but the price is ridiculous at ~£2.89 for a small loaf.

Patience, Thanks for the heads-up about availability on prescription.

Hot deal - for national coeliac awareness week, I think.

Yeah it is Sainsburys, who IMO have a better selection are running a similar deals,

Genius is definately better on prescription

bout time they gave promotions on specialist stuff. its not like people chose to have this stuff.

Nairns Porridge + Jam. Sorted! Thanks OP.

Cheers for this, good post.

The price for Genius bread is ridiculous, but if you're gluten / wheat intolerant, it's absolutely fantastic.

I tried going wheat free for a while whilst trying to pinpoint a food allergy, before this stuff hit the market and the other "FreeFrom" bread products were complete and utter **** - very dry, tasted horrid. This totally changed everything and helped keep me sane.

But yeah - not cheap

Clever bread eh, whatever next!

How do you get Genius on prescription? thats a great idea

Thanks for this, hopefully make the Wifey happy (like that ever happens...) Have some heat, jeez have an inferno (if there was a button for that, I'd be clicking it like the OCD person I am...)

better to wean off grains full stop - primal ftw

Is this online only or in-store too?

in-store as well, saw it today

Genius bread is fabulous however for anyone who hasn't already tried it, avoid Warburtons wheat free bread as it's hugely inferior: the main problem being that it tastes of absolutely nothing!

Thanks!

if any of you get the chance to try it, give "fria" products a go - they are a swedish company (sweden are light years ahead of the uk for their coeliac awareness) who has recently started to import their breads and pastries into the uk. their stuff is beautiful, good quality breads made, crucially, from wheat starch but with the gluten completely removed - so they actually taste real rather than a rice/corn/whatever flour alternative.

oh, also marks and spencer have a reasonable range of stuff - they have a range of gluten free sausages which are nice, though the premium ones are a lot tastier than the butchers choice ones. not particularly expensive either. i think the premium ones are something like 97% meat.

Thanks for this, will stock up - you can freeze the bread.

Fantastic find! Love cheap GF!

Scrumpy have you tried the ASDA sausages? They are in with their normal fresh sausage range as premium pork sausages and then in tiny tiny writing underneath it says gluten free but they are fab and cost £3 for two packs of 6!!

If you are entitled to gluten-free food on prescription, Genius fresh … If you are entitled to gluten-free food on prescription, Genius fresh gluten-free bread can now be prescribed for you by your GP.



What a waste of tax payers money that should directed to people who really need medication to save their lives, NOT for people to have gluten free bread.

Try "The Black Farmer" sausages.. some of the nicest I've had and they're wheat & gluten free as well as they've got massive meat content and aren't padded out with rusks!

If you could have seen the problems and difficulties my wife has gone through in her 30+ years until she was diagnosed with this horrible disease you would change your mind. It may not be a life threatening condition but it has a whole range of dreadful symptoms which I personally wouldn't wish on anyone. I hope none of your loved ones have to face it. But, if they do, at least they can currently get some respite through the prescription system, once they are diagnosed.

Completly agree my dad also suffers with Colieac Disease. Its disgusting that shops are allowed to get away with charging soo much for something so simple as bread etc. Its a nightmare eating out. Please look up Colieac disase before commenting !! Left undiagnosed can lead to bowel cancer and many other diseases plus there is other medication colieac sufferers take to combat this. The symptons are awful and would not wish on anyone, Colieac is not caused by anything the individual has done so for someone to be denied something as simple as a loaf of bread from 'tax payers' money - as a tax payer myself i certainly dont. Plus you are paying for a medical exemption certificate so technically you are paying for your bread and not wasting tax payers money.
Maybe they should consider getting lots of people back to work etc to pay taxes than picking on people who do work, pay for a prepayment card. Also shops should be made to lower the price of these items.

Just searching for deals on gluten free food as I've just been diagnosed with coeliac disease!

As others have commented, please look it up. It's an auto-immune disease which can result in bowel cancer and other nasty side-effects if not treated by a change in diet.

The food may be available on prescription but it's not free. I'm still having to pay £7.40 per item on prescription so will be using a pre-payment certificate to make it more affordable (still £104 a year).
