Gluten Free Fresh Bakery Bread in Sainsburys
Today Sainsburys have started doing fresh gluten free bread in the bakery, baked instore. Similar to what Tesco did last year but seemed to phase out of most stores.

We took a trip to Archer Road Sainsburys in Sheffield as we knew for sure that is particular branch was stocking the bread from today, though I think we can assume if one store is doing it is it likely to have been introduced into most of the bigger stores (don't hold us to that though, we're trying to find out which stores are doing it), if not today then probably within the next week or so.

We weren't sure where exactly they were putting this new range so we went straight for the free from aisle, there we found signs saying "fresh gluten free bread available now in the bakery" so we went round to the fresh bakery aisle. The bread was on the top shelf (no crumbs from other baked stuff can drop on them from there) with gluten free labels all around and there wasn't just one variety as we were expecting but a whole shelf of different gluten free bread.

The bread itself is cooked in the plastic wrap, they receive it in store uncooked in the plastic and then cook it in it so it isn't in contact with any cross contamination, the products are then sold in the plastic too.

The varieties available are:-
White Farmhouse Loaf
White Batons (1 in a pack)
White Rolls (2 in a pack)
Seeded Farmhouse Loaf
Seeded Baton (1 in a pack)
Seeded Rolls (2 in a pack)

All the bread is not only free from gluten but egg and milk too (as well as any other of the top 14 allergens) unlike a lot of gluten free bread.

We bought the white farmhouse and a pack of rolls and tried them both when we got home, we can confirm they are delicious almost like normal bread, really soft and tasty, not rock hard or too sweet like some of the gluten free bread. Prices range from £1.50 for a pack of two rolls and the batons, up to £2.30 for a loaf which is about on par with gluten free products unfortunately, they are worth the price unlike some of the other breads out there though.

EDIT:
Sainsburys have just provided this full list of all the stores stocking the new fresh baked bread, there is nearly 200 on the list that are part of the trial.
