The only reason we questioned is because you lumped a non-cereal grain in with fairly closely related cereal grains. It's common in the food allergen and celiac communities to list cousins in a food family together with slashes and to use serial commas for other allergens   Lots of people mistakenly think buckwheat is wheat, so we asked for clarification, that is all.

Welcome Rudderbird!

Back on the topic of Udis.  We will not get into why I eat it, as I have no diagnosed allergy to wheat.  ;)  That is true, but I sometimes use Udis or Schaar products.  My comments only relate to my impression of the quality and taste of the products I have tried. 

I have had Udis a few times now.  One loaf came on the shelf, and is sold at Trader Joe's.  It was okay.  Not wheat bread, but could be used out of the bag when first opened.  As they go stale very quickly, I tend to toast to freshen.  Just lightly.  This works for me.  I only tried a mulitgrain loaf and a white sandwich loaf. 

I tried Schaar, and the loaf was all borken and so hard, and *had* to be toasted to be pallatable.  Lightly so, to soften the bread again, not toasted hard.  I did contact them about the quality, due to the borken pieces of more than half the loaf, rendering it useless for sandwiches.  They were very responsive and sent coupons, so I will use those(one is for $6.50) and give it another chance.  I think I liked the taste better, but not texture.  But similar, really. 

So, I think side by side, I would choose the udis non-frozen shelf product i got at Trader Joe's, since it was good right out fo the bag for a couple of days.  Sometimes, I just like an egg salad sandwich on soft(ish) bread.

I hope that helps you!  Welcome and glad to see your current food plan has you feeling so much better!

Our family has tried Udis.

The kids think the muffin products are good . . . but that my homemade is much better . . .

But what I had trouble stomaching was the cost.  Udis is too expensive.  So, we only use them in a real pinch.

Is this where I blame iPhone and cuss like an old fighter pilot's wife?

Cost is why I have not tried them.

I have no issue with wheat.  However, they had some buns that were free of my allergens and I thought it would be nice to be able to buy them instead of having to plan ahead and make my own.  So many people that have tried Udi's say they are good.

I don't know if they are expensive comparing to other wheat or gluten free breads though.
Truly, it should be no problem to delay. Republicans completely blocked the nomination of a highly qualified candidate for a year and a half. They wouldn’t even consider him. It was more than rude—it was an abdication of duty.

So why the rush here? ~~MC

Yes, crazy expensive.  If interrested, I make a flax/egg  sandwich wrap, which is not really *like* bread, but a flat thing one can wrap around deli meat or cheese for a sandwich.  You can actually google it by using "wheat Belly flax sandwich wrap."  Basically ground flax, an egg, oil or butter, bit of baking powder, seasoning as desired.  Low carb and free of many allergens, except not free of egg.

LOL Udi's is cheap compared to other gluten and egg free brands.  I guess because I have been buying it so long that I no longer balk.  I do find it interesting though that a cheap loaf of white bread made with wheat can go weeks without molding and sometimes GF cannot go hours without refrigerating before it starts molding.  Shuddering flashbacks to Ener-G bread.

My MIL buys and freezes (she will put a few slices in a bag). 

Scharr works for DS1's allergies BUT yeah, breakage is a pain.  I think in part because the lack of egg.
DS1 - Wheat, rye, barley and egg
DS2 - peanuts
DD -  tree nuts, soy and sunflower
Me - bananas, eggplant, many drugs
