A very nice bread, but...
I was looking for a better multi grain bread and found Abbots bread to be that one. The only thing I was not happy with, was not the bread itself, but the Canola oil as one of the ingredients.
Drs, are seeing an increase in Macular Degeneration of the eyes of patients who eat Canola Oil.
When farmers in Tasmania fed their cattle the plant after getting the seeds, the cattle went blind for 2 days. -This was article on the front page of our newspaper. -Sunflower or Palm would be a better substitute.
When it is changed, I will buy it again.

Abbott's Village Bakery
I have found that Abbott's Village Bakery bread is the best that I can buy in South Australia. Olga's is just terrible as are Tip Top and others. My Abbott's favourites are the Grainy Wholemeal, Country Grains and Farmhouse Wholemeal. However I do wish that Abbott's wouldn't experiment with new bread such as Sundried Tomato & Basil and Pumpkin, Sunflower Seed & Caramelised Onion, which are just awful. Every supermarket has these loaves left over on their shelves because they are not popular. I have tried both and I really cannot understand how this bakery continues these experiments with dreadful results! Oh, yes, too many air pockets in what would otherwise be perfect bread.
Bread quality has diminished
I am a bit sad that the quality of the Light Rye bread seems to have diminished, I will go on purchasing it but now the bread slices are thinner and have far more "air holes" than previously, I used to love the rather "fudgy" texture and I would never purchase any other brand. I might just have to try "Helgas"
The best flavoured grain bread.
The Country Grain has great flavour, texture and full of fibre and I have been toasting it in the embers of a wood stove for many years. Since the repackaging I have noticed the slices on the toasting fork appear to be smaller. I would appreciate the larger slices again.
Country Grains and lighter loaf
I have been buying this as preferred for a long time. I buy online delivery from Coles and it had not been on offer in my last two deliveries. I spoke to Abbotts directly and they gave a reasonable explanation. I had feared that Coles may have dropped the line in the light of the last monhh's experience. I have mentioned this in my last comments on my most recent order but I have heard nothing in response so far..Time will tell
Love this bread !
I've been coeliac for years..was making my own as first gen' g/f bread was like scone mixture..sorry to tell you it will never be the same as gluten bread but I think It is the best so far !! and yes I pay $7.40 because I know a bit about g/f flour prices...if bread goes a bit dry, pop it in the micro wave for a few seconds!
Disappointed in Bread having Air pockets
While i agree this bread is better than most on the market it does come at a premium price of $7.00 .My issue is the last 4 loafs i have purchased have had huge air pockets.Have contacted the company with photos of the problem with no contact back after 2 weeks!! I refuse to be ripped off and will no longer purchasing this GF bread.They clearly aren't interested in customer satisfaction or quality control.
Gluten and wheat free bread
Was totally disgusted to see that a company would knowingly try and deceive its customers, when you bought out the larger size slices of above bread I know an enormous amount of people including myself who were so happy that finally someone finally made a slice of bread almost the same size as a standard loaf of bread, finally we didn't have to pay very large sums of money for bread that was not much bigger than a playing card and the texture and smell not good
even though your price was still over $6.00 it was worth it.
But now that everyone...
2nd loaf in 2 weeks with air pockets.... Not Happy Jan!!!!
Ok as above, first loaf had air holes at the end of the loaf, and by that time the 'tag' off the bag was long gone. We clip ours with a cliplock to keep the bread in the freezer. Took photos to send to Abbotts, then read that they want the tag info. Too bad, deleted the photos.
Opened second loaf today, bonus air holes in 1st 2 slices, still got the tag, took photos, nice polite email drafted, photos re-sized for email, - got their email from their website - email@example.com - Sent the email off with all the photos and info....Expecting to get an answer tomorrow at the earliest. Within seconds, I got a failure notice. Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address. <firstname.lastname@example.org>: No MX or A records for abbottsvillagebakery.com.au

Questions & Answers
Love your Country Grains bread but after couple of days gets a white mould on the outside of the loaf . We live in tropical Queensland . Is this mould harmful? Still seems ok for toast
Hi Tooster! Sorry for not responding to your interesting question sooner; I am intrigued by the white mould that appears on your "Abbott's" bread.
I lived in Rockhampton for a few years and I know how quickly the humidity can ruin foods. I kept foods such as bread and bread like products in a refrigerator in an effort to preserve them for a bit longer. I now live in western sydney (nsw) and I now keep a couple of extra loaves of "Abbott's bread in a freezer and I take a loaf out and put it in the refrigerator the day before the current loaf is finished, this allows the bread thaw slowly overnight and is still moist and fresh. I know this doesn't answer your question about white mould although in the past I have sliced off the affected areas and I have not experienced any health problems. May I suggest perhaps that you try contacting either "Abbott's" or a "Food Technologist" even a Dietician may be able to answer your query, in the meantime, it may not be wise to consume "mouldy bread" just in case it you have an intolerance to it.
Good luck and kind regards.
