Bread and baked goods are a regular staple in my household as I’m sure it is in most homes around the world. They’re filling, wholesome, and satisfying and they fulfill the basic dietary need. But when I was on the lookout for organic bread and baked goods they were really hard to find, unless I was making them myself. That’s when I discovered Rudi’s Organic Bakery not too long ago. Only thing is, they’ve been around for a very long time so I must have been sleepwalking while I was shopping at my natural grocery stores. Rudi’s Organic Bakery makes a delicious assortment of bread and baked goods and they are absolutely scrumptious! And most importantly, they make gluten-free versions for those who crave bread but can’t find anything that’s delicious and free of wheat gluten.
While we can eat regular bread made with wheat flour, I did try their gluten-free version and it was pretty good. Besides the chewy texture, the bread tasted like their regular versions – full of robust flavor and fulfilling. But we stuck with their regular versions because we’re not used to eating gluten-free bread. I have to say that I’ve tried almost all of their breads and our favorites are their Multigrain Oat, Honey Sweet Whole Wheat, Colorado Cracked Wheat, and Nut & Oat. We also enjoy their bagels which are super yummy with cream cheese and fresh fruit spreads. But Rudi’s makes more than just bread and bagels. They also make buns, rolls, tortillas, sandwich flats, and english muffins. And all of their baked goods are made with organic and natural ingredients without any added high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, or artificial colors and flavors. Because they have a great selection of flavors and varieties to choose from, you can really find something to your liking.
Rudi’s Organic Bakery began over 30 years ago in Boulder, Colorado after a need for finding healthy, delicious, and natural baked goods couldn’t be met. That’s when Rudi’s began their own company making wholesome, nutritious, and baked goods made from scratch. Soon their wholesome and natural baked goods became a hit in their town and their breads became popular throughout the nation. Today, you can find Rudi’s Organic Bakery baked goods at virtually every natural grocery store in the US and sometimes you can find their breads used in promotions with other natural and organic companies. Their baked goods are good for pretty much anyone of any age and they are so flavorful, you can eat them by itself – without any added condiments or toppings. And they are made with whole grains which is an important ingredient to consume for a healthier lifestyle. With Rudi’s baked goods, you get the whole grain and organic goodness, plus no unnecessary additives or preservatives.
Eating whole grains has proven to be effective in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Whole grains contains an assortment of vitamins and minerals and they help with digestion due to its high fiber content. When looking for baked goods such as bread and muffins, look for ones that are made with whole grains instead of enriched grains (although enriched grains have added vitamins in them). But since whole grains contain all the layers of the grain, you’re getting all of the important nutrients that come with them. Besides, I find that eating whole grain breads just taste so much better. Maybe it’s a bit sweeter in nature and a bit more exciting in texture, in my opinion, but if you try it yourself, then you’ll probably agree it tastes much different than regular enriched bread.
Since we’ve been enjoying Rudi’s Organic Bakery baked goods for awhile now, Rudi’s wanted me to try some of their most popular flavors. The products they sent me were Nut & Oat, Multigrain Oat, and 7 Grain with Flax. The Nut & Oat is truly delightful with chopped little pieces of hazelnuts nestled inside each slice of bread. It’s a little bit sweet and soft and the nut texture isn’t overwhelming. The Multigrain Oat contains many nutritious ingredients including organic rolled oats, organic cornmeal, and organic wheat bran. The texture is a bit stronger so you can make a really hearty sandwich if you want. The 7 Grain with Flax is incredibly unique in taste and texture with the sunflower seeds as the main highlight. I love sunflower seeds and this powerful bread also contains flaxseeds, quinoa, and kamut for additional nutritional benefits. We liked all 3 of the flavors that were sent to us, although the Multigrain Oat and Nut & Oat were our favorites. My husband thought the 7 Grain with Flax was a bit tough but that’s mostly because of all the grains inside the bread.
