'Burgest Mistake'


".I see that we are not the only ones that have had a gut full of the 'new' Burgen Soy Lin recipe. They have managed to make it almost inedible. It is now dry and tastes stale even when 'fresh'. We have been loyal consumers for many many years. But we can't continue to buy just on fond memories. It's a sad day in the bread isle..."

Was great ... now awful tasting.


I have bought this bread for the last 5 years and loved it ... now they have changed the recipe and I won't be buying it again. I don't know if they are trying to cut costs because of price pressure from the supermarkets but the bread is completely different in texture and taste. It has lost its competitive advantage completely .... disappoint ing for the faithful consumer.

Changed the recipe!


It used to be the only packaged bread I would buy but now they have changed the recipe and it is dry, doesn't make nice sandwiches any more & goes mouldy within a couple of days stored in the fridge. Why did they change it??!

goes mouldy within 3 days


I have brought this bread for years and had no problem up until the last 6months .Thinking of not buying it anymore, as it goes mouldy in 3 days even if I put it in the fridge.

Why is Burgen GF bread no longer available?


I thought the Burgen GF Sunflower/Chia seed bread the best GF bread on the market. Have had a number of loaves frozen in my freezer so perhaps I’ve missed the new recipe while using up those. But please can we have the old bread back and available again - so good and nothing else competes. Why has it been taken off the market?

New recipe is disgusting


I have been buying this product for quite a few years and even though the price tag was expensive the taste was exceptional.
Well not any more the new recipe is disgusting the bread is dry and tasteless, I won’t be buying this again!!

Purchased in March 2019 at Woolworths for $7.00.

So disappointed


I’m so disappointed in the new recipe. It’s dry, crumbly and tasteless, a complete contrast with the old recipe which was moist and delicious. I will not be buying this brand again unless they revert to the old tried and tested recipe. Burgen, what were you thinking?

Purchased in February 2019 for $7.00.

New recipe is terrible


Very disappointed. Used to be my favourite GF bread. Now a terrible, crumbly dry mess. The new recipe even comes with a sealed plastic bag inside the traditional bag - but still it is disintegrates upon opening. Can't believe they thought this recipe was an improvement. No longer recommend

The worst recipe change ever


So sad. Why would you do this? Previously SO GOOD. now SO BAD. dry crumby and wasteful packaging.... After a brief joyous delight in wonderful GF produce we are back to second rate dusty cardboard..

Purchased in February 2019 at Coles Supermarkets for $6.50.

gluten free terrible recipie change


Used to be the best gluten free bread on the market...what happened?
I suspect the reason for the changed packaging...extra plastic wrap is an attempt to overcome the dry crumbly new recipie

Previous recipe for Burgen GF bread best on the market. Now horrible.


Please go back to old recipe immediately for GF Burgen bread. It was fantastic. We loved the sunflower and chia as well as the linseed. Moist, seedy, tasty,delicious. Best on market. We bought 8 loaves per week. None now. We are So disappointed Burgen. Also packaging wasteful.

Gluten free ...new recipe


The previous GF recipe..in all lines was fantastic..moist and delicious and the best on the market.

The new recipe is in my opinion inferior, it is dry and unpalatable, and so I will no longer be buying from your GF range.

I’m no longer buying Burgen


This new recipe is horrid, why change the recipe, it was perfect how it was! Unless it changes back I won’t be buying this brand anymore, so disappointing :(

Worst new recipe ever!!


Your gf bread used to be the best out there! Amazing fresh or toasted! Just tried the new recipe and it was terrible it tasted like cardboard. So disappointed! Not to mention it is now wrapped unnecessarily in double the amount of plastic packaging!!!
Go back to the old recipe



New recipe is no good


I don’t understand why you changed your gluten free bread recipe. The old recipe was amazing and you could eat it fresh and always beautiful and moist. The new recipe is dry and can only be eaten toasted and just like all the other breads on the market. Why change a good thing.

New recipe AWFUL


Have eaten Burgen gluten free bread since it first came into Coles many years ago. Always liked it & never tried another brand. This new recipe is awful. The bread is dry and it fell apart taking it out . Lost half a loaf & it tasted stale. Will have to try other brands. Never again unless we go back to the old recipe.



so disappointed


What have you done to the best GF bread out there. If I wanted dry, crumbly thick slices that were inedible I would buy Helgas.

Why oh why did they change it?


Burgen Soy-Lin gluten free used to make me happy. Good gluten free breads are so hard to find. And now this one is one of the worst. Dry and crumbly, holes all through it. I will never buy this again. I’m so sad :(

Does this bread contain nuts

Does anyone know if Burgen has changed the recipe of soylin bread? The last two loaves I have bought have been much less soft & moist than usual. So disappointing! Many thanks....

Unless they see a marketing advantage (eg "Now salt free" or "Reduced fat") I don't think they would make recipe changes public. One way to get them to change is first to acknowledge something good about the product... (eg "It has good texture") but then to make your point "Too dry"... or "too salty" ... Please fix to make the product better...



I have never had a problem since my niece introduced, me to burgen soy linseed bread. However over the last 6 weeks the bread is going mouldy under a week. I am a pensioner ,unable to get to get to Coles for a refund. I am paying top dollar for a loaf of bread that last 3 days, if I am lucky. Do I have to look for an alternate bread.

I am no longer buying this bread because it was sticking together and making holes in each slice


Tried again this week, with a different store, however I will not be buying, Burgen Soy linseed again.
I have not been able to find a customer care number or address that I could tell them of the problem.
Has anybody else had this problem.


I have promoted burgen bread for almost 2 years as the best gluten free bread on the market BUT recently it has been going moldy within a couple of days and long before the useby date.
I have looked in line to see where I can write to the company but can't find anything.
$7 a loaf and you have to throw away half of it.
