BFree gluten and wheat free bread is the newest in a line of steadily improving gluten free breads in Ireland. BFree boasts the fewest calories per slice (no mean feat in the land of gluten free) and a “fresh frozen” production technique which, they claim, will leave it tasting great for longer.
After experiencing the buzz of their pop up shop in Dublin’s Duke Street firsthand, I was convinced enough to buy a loaf. Their bread does not need to be “refreshed” (shudder) slices well and holds its shape without crumbling into dust. However, both the samples I tried in their pop up shop, and the loaf I brought home, seemed to have a strange chemical or metallic aftertaste that I couldn’t figure out.
Although I prefer Genius for taste and for toast, the BFree line wins hands down on texture. BFree is available in Dunnes Stores nationwide, in the bread aisle*.
