Disapointed

:( Coeliac and Diabetic so I was buying Low GI Bread was awesome now what?
First Bulla deleted their Light Ice Cream now this whats next ......................

What am i going to eat for lunch now?

published

I agree - I cant believe the Low GI bread line has been discontinued - I just called up Country Life and the woman was apologetic but didn't offer a solution. Appears they are not providing an alternative. Has anyone found a similar bread to the Low GI option that they enjoy and don't react to???

Product delete

published

Can't believe this bread has been deleted from your range as this one was the best seller,---you had to be early in the supermarket to be able to get it.
The others in the range were always available but my wife cannot eat them and it seams others in our locality were the same.
My wife suffers from fructose malabsorption and they are making it harder for to survive.

Coeliacs suffer again.

Poor size loaves with big holes, crusts burn when toasted, dry & crumbly when "fresh", can't reseal packet & expensive.


Love it :-)

I discovered Country Life GF and low GI bread a few weeks ago. I'm on a GF low carb diet and this bread is marvellous, it's tastes great with good texture, toasts well. It's something I can have when I'm fed up with salad or meat and veg. I just keep it in the freezer as I don't eat it every day.
My only complaint is that I can't always find it in the supermarkets I shop in.


Disappointing

published

Not at all happy with the increase in salt in the new bread. I consider that this overrides any health benefit achieved by the Low Gi aspect.


From delight to disappointment

published

As a coeliac I have been purchasing this bread (basically from Coles but occasionally from Woolworths WA), since it came on the market and truly loving it. In the past fortnight, I have purchased this bread each week and placed it in the freezer immediately as I always wanted it on hand. However, both loaves were mouldy and could not be eaten. The loaves were purchased prior to due date... the date expired yesterday, but it appears that the loaves expired well before. I shall look more carefully and shop more carefully in future,

Can no longer eat your bread.

Since you altered your ingridedients over a year ago I have not bee able to eat your braeds. you need to produce a bread that is gluten free and preservative free even if this means keeping it in the fridge. I have a reaction with preservatives 260 262 and it gives me a servere asthma attack. As a sufferer of coeliac it would be wonderful for a company to produce a gluten free bread preservative free.
And I am not the only one who has stopped buying your breads.

Gives me asthma

Country Life Bakery Gluten Free low gi white bread

published

At first for a 580gram loaf thought it was a bit heavy. Larger slices would be nice, but my experience in baking G/F bread larger slices would not bake through. After a struggle to open the packaging found the slices trying to stick together. Taste is pleasant, tends to be on the dry side. As I do with all our bread for the freezer, wrap each slice individually in clingwrap. This bread toasts up nicely too. A little expensive.
Having said the above, this bread is above average compared with many others tried internationally
Taste is pleasant. toasts up nicely. freezes well
Packaging extremely difficult to open with arthritis. slices too small. expensive

i'm buying gluten product now, the bread really needs a new packaging is not good after is opened, there is no re-seal. I agree it is very expensive and yes, the slices are too small..

Loving the new recipe!

published

I love the new texture and taste. The bread holds together, it lasts up to a week in my pantry, makes great toast and sandwhiches. I usually make my own bread which is even more like wheat bread, but when I'm travelling or stuck for time I now buy your bread. I love it!
Moist texture and doesn't crumble. Stays fresh out of the fridge.
Price. I make my own for $2.70 per loaf.

Not a fan

We are now looking at other brands. Tried the bread on and off for a couple of months hoping it was a one off but it was not to be. The whole product is not what it was. Have now found alternate products which are meeting our needs. These products we are recommending to all our other coeliac friends and family. You must be flourishing for you not to take notice of your customers. Surely I cannot be in the minority.

Just brought loaf, big holes in it and what I believe to be an insect in the bread. Rang the hotline who offered to give me a voucher for a replacement loaf, and I have to send the faulty back to them. How generous of them!

who was behind this packaging?

published

So I spend $6+ on a loaf. i need a chainsaw to get into the packaging; take a slice or two out as needed, only to then find that i cant seal the bread back to remain fresh. So I put the bread in another container or plastic bag. this alone is putting me off the bread itself. which is good. shame big shame!
bread
packaging! disaster

Major disappointment!!!

published

A BIG THUMBS DOWN CLB. For me complete and utter dismay. The addition of soy to this nice bread has put it out of reach for me. You have lost a loyal customer and hurt my local IGA too because I won't be getting my bread order there anymore.

Addition of "kryptonite"....soy!!!

I am a coeliac, but can eat soy, so it is wonderful for me. Sorry you don't like it.

Thanks Maggie. Unfortunately allergy amongst Celiacs and gluten intolerant people is all too common.
Soy really is "Kryptonite" for us and makes us very ill.
I'm glad you're still able to eat CLB but it's no longer an option for us. : • (

Great new recipe

published

I have been gluten free for 7 years and have always wanted to eat a sandwhich that does not taste like cake and crumble into dry pieces. Now I can, thanks for making bread that is almost like normal bread. The bread is also a normal size like a real loaf of bread. Thanks, thanks and thanks.
Does not have to be toasted but can be eaten fresh
The packaging means it has to be repackaged to freeze and to keep it fresh for a few days while it is consumed


Love it

published

This bread is amazing. Since going gluten free 6 months ago never thought I would be able to find a nice bread close to the usual white bread. This bread is absolutely beautiful. I can have it as a sandwich instead of toasting and tastes like real white bread. Thank you country life bakery.
Tastes like real white bread
The price


Disappointed - sadly - pls bring back Low Gi recipe.

Questions & Answers

Hoby

Hobyasked

Yeah...$6.50 plus for a loaf. Packaging is a joke. Slices sticking together another joke. After attempting to separate the slices, half the loaf is destroyed. Why should we have to freeze the loaf, and struggle to separate the slices when it is a SLICED LOAF already? Unfortunately this is the only bread my Wife can eat so I suppose we will have to continue paying top dollar for 6 damn slices...

It's a pain alright. Well and Good make nice bread mixes. Perhaps your wife could tolerate those?
Also "Living Well" make nice crumpets and soft rolls both of which toast nicely.
Hope this helps.

Debbie79asked

Why is it that I have to spend $6.50 to get a loaf of this bread only to find that the bread sticks together in places and I end up with 4 or 5 slices that are broken into pieces? Also I find it so difficult to get Multigrain bread. It doesn't matter whether I go to Coles, WW or IGA, by the time I get there there are heaps of loaves of white or low GI (I hate them both) and absolutely no Multigrain except on the odd occasion. What's going on??

Hi Deb. If you are still able to eat this bread try freezing it first before you attempt to separate the slices. I can't have it anymore because CLB have added soy. I have heard lots of complaints about the so called "improved" loaves...soy : ( crumbling and difficult to unpack.
I don't think it's because we are a mob of wingers. There are genuine issues with the "improved" loaves. Hope my suggestion helps.

Thanks Avigayil. The thing is this new improved loaf was quite good at first- for the first time ever I was able to take a sandwich with me for my lunch- but only the multigrain one, which i can rarely get!!! I am sorry to hear you can no longer eat it..goodness knows, there is very few things you can eat when you have allergies, and then when another thing is taken away, there doesn't seem much left does it???
