Slicing our bread

Slice gluten free bread lengthways not the conventional widthways.  Do take a look at the photos and hopefully you'll see what I mean. You'll get a great slice of bread for sandwiches and toast!  

It’s the one thing everyone notices about gluten free loaves - the size - they are always smaller than loaves with gluten. So by cutting them the other way you get a much better slice.

We have tried to get a bigger loaf but without gluten to support the structure there is always a limit to the size of the loaf.  This is especially true if the gluten free bread is real bread, free from chemicals and processed gums. We rely on natural ingredients such as ground up flaxseeds to build structure in place of gluten in our breads but we can't make our loaves any bigger.

But every cloud does have a silver lining as all of the ingredients we do use are completely natural and very good for our gut health. They really increase the nutritional content of our breads compared to other breads and most importantly, they also help to make the bread really tasty.  

It's all very well and good eating something that's good for us but surely everyone actually wants to eat really tasty bread? If it's doing us and our family some good, hey, that's even better.
