I am on a search for the best gluten free sourdough bread on the market. While I had not tried sourdough in my pre-Celiac days, my boyfriend, Kristopher, is from the San Francisco area and is a die-hard fan, a sourdough expert and connoisseur. This makes him a highly qualified judge, and we hit the jackpot when we discovered Bread SRSLY, a San Francisco-based company.
While you can find sourdough across the country, there is something special about sourdough made in the Bay Area (I’ve been told that it has something to do with the yeast, water, and geographic location). Kristopher and I have found this to be true. Between their loaves, dinner rolls and sandwich rolls, Bread SRSLY is the best gluten free sourdough bread that we have tried yet!
How it all started – Sadie, the founder of Bread SRSLY, began experimenting with gluten free flours in order to impress a gluten free guy who she was smitten with. Oddly enough, a few months later she learned that she was gluten intolerant herself. She perfected her gluten free loaves and launched Bread SRSLY in 2011. Her company has quickly captured the attention, hearts, and taste buds of the Celiac community.
Having sampled several products, I can safely say that the sandwich rolls are my favorite – tangy taste and super soft texture (seriously, we need kick the “gluten free tastes like cardboard” myth to the curb – this bread is better than most wheat-filled breads). Kristopher also very much enjoyed the dinner rolls, commenting that they were the tangiest of the bunch.
Fun facts about Bread SRSLY:
- 100% gluten free facility
- Certified GF through the CSA (CSA certifications are only given to products that test below 5ppm)
- Nut free facility
- Made by hand
- Non GMO
- Gum-free options (the sandwich rolls contain psyllium husk instead of xanthan gum)
If you are in the San Francisco area you can find Bread SRSLY at various grocery stores and cafes. As for the rest of us, we can order them online! They offer $5 flat rate shipping – super budget friendly!
