Introducing Venerdi Paleo Bread

There is a continuous search for the best 'Gluten-Free' Bread on the market. As of April 2016, I have found a bold contender to reign the top spot in the pyramid of good-for-you and tasty gluten-free breads.

Introducing: Venerdi, specialty gluten-free bread maker from New Zealand. 
Venerdi's Super Seeded Paleo Bread. Real wholefood quality naked to the eye!
Its origin began in NZ in 2002, when founder Tim Grainger developed the family's business, which at the time was producing organic spelt products, towards the gluten-free model. Having a coeliac in the family, as well as being lactose-intolerant himself, Grainger's venture in the food intolerant market was compatible with the family's health practices and experiences.


In a handful of years, Venerdi's gluten-free bread products gained prominence in the food service industry and remain the industry's go to allergy-friendly bread. If you have eaten gluten-free pizza from Hell Pizza, Domino's Pizza, Crust Gourmet Pizza, Pita Pit in New Zealand and Australia, you have been supporting Venerdi's gluten-free products!

In Australia, you might have noticed Venerdi's breads cropping up in supermarkets and health food stores. Particularly its Paleo Bread range. It's ape-to-man label and statement- PALEO Your Grain Free Bread- is eye-catching. It is the first Paleo bread commercially available in the Australasia hemisphere.



A Comparison of Nutritional Info for Venerdi's Breads
(Info per Slice of bread)

Venerdi's Paleo Breads are low in carbohydrates and sugars, protein rich, high in dietary fibre and have a modest caloric count. It is free of dairy, soy, corn, refined sugars, preservatives, humectants and thickeners.

Adhering to the wholefoods approach, Venerdi's paleo breads are made with almond flour, tapioca starch, coconut flour, coconut oil, honey, cider vinegar, yeast and free-range eggs. From there, ingredients vary to provide consumers two different options in the Paleo bread range: Almond and Linseed and Super Seeded.


In the test kitchen, the paleo breads toasted well- a light crunch to the crusts without being dry in the centre. The toasts were not heavy, and they paired beautifully with coconut butter, almond butter or avocado slices. It held its shape too, making it an ideal sandwich bread and grilled toasties. More importantly, I didn't experience the bloatedness associated with ingesting high-fibre gluten-free breads that are enriched with modified cellulose or psyllium husks.

Also by Venerdi is a gluten-free bread range, which include: Multigrain, Six Seeded and yeast-free Brown Sourdough Bread- all made with certified organic ingredients from New Zealand.

It is an ideal situation when the food you eat not only tastes good, but that you also feel good after eating it. There's a lot of excitement surrounding Venerdi's Paleo Bread. And as demonstrated in the test kitchen, it lives up to the hype.

Say Yummm. Thank you Tim, Ashleigh and Sarah at Venerdi's for having me test out your Paleo Breads!
