The Best Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, and Gluten-Free Bread

I love sandwiches and ever since having to eat gluten-free I had yet to find a good tasting bread. Udi’s bread crumbles and is horrible for toasting.

Then I found Canyon Bakehouse. This bread is delicious! I eat the “Mountain White” variation as the other one has seeds in it which I can’t tolerate.

It is dairy-free, soy-free, and gluten-free certified.

  • Water
  • Brown Rice Flour
  • Organic Agave Syrup
  • Tapioca Flour
  • Whole Grain Sorghum Flour
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Cultured Brown Rice Flour
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Eggs
  • Whole Grain Amaranth
  • Sea Salt
  • Yeast
  • Natural Enzymes

The only ingredient I wish it didn’t have is the xanthan gum.


Let me tell you, this bread tastes amazing and the texture is smooth as butter! In fact it is much better than the cheap bread I was buying before my gluten-free diet.

They also have a Cinnamon Raisin bread which works great for toasting with a little peanut butter.

Where to Buy

I buy mine at Sprouts and Target. You can also find it at certain Safeways and of course on Amazon.

You can find a store near you using the Canyon Bakehouse store locator.


I pay $4.99 at Sprouts for a loaf. While that is a little expensive, it is still way cheaper than eating out. And the taste and texture make up for it.

Let me know what your favorite gluten-free bread is below.

  1. Hi Brian,
    We are big fans of Canyon Bakehouse too! Keep up the good work and awesome reviews, we’re following!
    GFG Team

  2. My favorite gluten free bread is Rudi’s Original, but I like to change it up with Three Bakers whole grain white and the Canyon MT white too.

    • Oh hey ReviewHell :) I tried a loaf of Rudi’s Original and it was pretty hard. But I should probably try again as since then I have gotten a bad load of Canyon Bakehouse as well. I think when it comes to GF, sometimes you get bad apples. So will definitely be trying that brand again.

      • Thanks so much for that info–how logical! Have experienced so many awful substitutes, I normally keep it moving after a disappointing taste, but I WILL be more tolerant going forward. Truly appreciate all the help I can get on this life-changing condition.

  3. I also avoid all processed gums (xanthum, guar, carragenean, etc), starches (tapioca, potato, corn, etc..) and corn/sorghum flour so this doesn’t work for me. anyone know of a commercial bread that is made without these ingredients?

    • Julian Bakery’s Paleo Bread just has “Purified Water, Blanched Almond Flour, Organic Coconut Flour, Egg Whites, Psyllium, Organic Lemon Juice, Potassium Bicarbonate” and is OK as non-starch breads go. I can’t have almond flour though, so I just sparingly eat the gluten free options with starches, or just do without any bread type products.

    • Hey Judy!
      I completely agree. When it comes to gluten-free bread, always better to buy local if you can. Unfortunately, that’s not an option for everyone.

  4. My favorite is the brand GFree from ALDI. Sorry don’t know the price but I am going to try the above mentioned Canyon bread to compare. 🤷🏼‍♀️

  5. I tried it and found what most people are saying is wrong. Tastes little better than corrugated cardboard. that is for sandwiches as toast its ok, And slices are as big as an appetizer so it takes 2+ sandwiches to equal half a sandwich. I’m diagnosed with Celiac Disease and would really appreciate honesty about the foods I am allowed to eat.

    • Hey Jim,
      I love their bread. If you know of any brands that taste better, I’m all ears. There isn’t much to choose from when it comes to store-bought bread. I’ve been eating Canyon Bakehouse for years and enjoy it. But everyone’s taste buds are different. I also don’t remember what real bread tastes like anymore.

  6. This is my favorite bread, I love Canyon. They have the best hotdog and hamburger buns. It not always easy to find, but’s worth it. If you haven’t tried the hamburger buns, you need to. There great for breakfast sandwiches too!!

  7. My favorite GF bread comes from Colorado Springs CO. Outside the Breadbox. Bread is the best and makes super toast and sandwiches. If you do your own pizza, the pizza crust (2 to a package) are excellent. They ship everywhere. Check them out!!

  8. Aldi’s Live G free is the bomb. Way better than Canyon and a little cheaper. It now comes in a larger slice than it did in the past. Best gluten free bread I have tried. But did you know you can purchase hamburger buns from Chick-fil-a and Red Robin. They will sell them frozen to you for about $1.25. They are packaged individually and will thaw out in no time. I pop my in the microwave for about 10 seconds. They are great when you don’t want to fill left out at the next family bar-b-q.

  9. Udi’s white bread found in the freezer section of HEB or Walmart is the best I have found so far. It comes in 2 sizes. Normal (whole sandwich) and smaller (roughly half sandwich). Unfortunately, it needs to be kept in the refrigerator, so when I make a sandwich, I heat it in the microwave just a bit. I will be trying the Canyon Bakehouse though to compare.

    • Thanks for the comment KaShawna! I corrected the auto-correct goof haha. Keeping in the fridge is a good suggestion. It seems that most gluten-free breads last better this way.

  10. I have found Schar bread to be good. It is in white and multigrain. They are both good(if you have to eat gluten free). I have not tried the canyon bread but will.

    • My husband has been eating Schar’s for 23 years. We discovered it in Europe and found it is their leading GF bread. Plus, they have many more items, including desserts.

  11. Try Trader Joe’s gluten-free bread. I found all varieties to be good and well priced. They have bagels “multigrain” white and an Italian bread. They have hotdog and burger buns in grilling season.

  12. As prior folks have mentioned, the Schar bread is good especially the ciabatta and the Trader Joe’s raisin bread has been the best tasting from what I’ve tried so far.
    Also found this bakery in Pennsylvania that makes only GF products called the Happy Mixer. They great for fresh donuts, cakes, and Italian cookies that are not as tasty any where else. Their bread is okay but didn’t find it any better than the Schar.
    Have not really enjoyed the Udi’s products much as I find them too dense and heavy.
    I am interested now to try this Canyon Bakehouse loaf.

    • Sasha, I stopped at the Happy Mixer in Devon, PA, recently, and treated myself to the most delicious chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven.

  13. I tried Udi bread first, but found the taste and texture not to my liking. Schar brand was next and I absolutely loved it, but then discovered it had soy which interferes with my thyroid medication. So will try Canyon Bakehouse. By the way, I would separate my Schar loaf and put about 4 slices each in individual zip lock bags and freeze. The freezing did not affect the texture at all……I was pleased. That way I didnt have to hurry and eat a loaf before it went bad. If you are single or only one in your household eating gluten free this is a lifesaver.

  14. I have been gluten intolerant for about 35 years. My favorite bread is Franz. They have mountain white and multi-grain bread as well as hamburger buns and hot dog buns. They also have a yummy Hawaiian. Great for toast and French toast. No soy or dairy. Available at WinCo and at Walmart. I’m planning on trying Canyon Bread.
