Gluten-free foods have improved significantly in quality over the past few years, especially in cakes, pasta and pastries.
But improvements in the quality of bread for coeliacs has not been as far reaching – many are merely edible. However Fria seem set to change that with a range of breads that will offer something close to a standard loaf in terms of texture and superior in terms of flavour.
Rather than bore you with a choice of white or brown bread, Fria have enhanced their breads with seeds, oats and, in the Limpan loaf, seville oranges!
Fria are already the biggest gluten-free bakery in Scandinavia and they’ve won several awards in the UK, particularly for their sliced brown, the Grova, a loaf enriched with linseeds and a hint of caraway; but also the Grov Minibaguette, a dark high fibre roll with sunflower seed, linseed and buckwheat flakes, and the Kladdkaka, a Swedish chocolate brownie cake.
When people taste Fria they really do believe that these breads, buns, muffins and chocolate cake are the best gluten free products they’ve tasted. You can sample their extensive range for free for yourself when the family firm appear, along with GoodnessDirect, at the Allergy & Free From Show at the BT Convention Centre, Liverpool, on 28-29 October.

But they are already available from GoodnessDirect. All of Fria’s products are baked in a dedicated gluten and dairy free environment. The products are freshly baked then frozen. They can simply be defrosted and are ready to eat with no baking required.
