Like many gluten-free companies, Simple Kneads has a story of love behind it.
Simple Kneads was started by Tristaun LeClaire, a natural foods expert whose son developed an allergic reaction to gluten when he was two years old. Frustrated by the lack of satisfying gluten-free breads on the market, Tristaun began experimenting with wholesome ingredients to create his own recipe. It was a father’s labor of love as he sought to create bread that would be as hearty and delicious as it was healthy and nutritious.
I received my shipment and was so pleased with the packaging. Each loaf is wrapped in a colored paper wrapping holding the loaves together. And they’re round! They say it’s like the size of the homemade loaves of yesteryear. It definitely feels special. And did I mention that they come in awesome boxes too?
I was also impressed with the size of the pieces of bread. They are at least twice the size of a piece of bread that I received from a mainstream bread company to try. They’re also more dense, makes me feel like I’m getting a real meal when I make toast with it!
As you can see, there are three varieties of Simple Kneads bread – sourdough, quinoa power grains, and pumpernickel. I think my favorite has to be the quinoa power grains. The loaves are baked to order – and only shipped on specific days to maintain freshness of your order. They only use certified gluten-free flour or flour that has been tested to be gluten-free. Here’s an example ingredient list (this one is for the Quinoa Power Grains):
Water, Millet Flour*, Sorghum Flour*, Quinoa Flour*, Buckwheat Flour*, Teff Flour, Expeller Pressed Sunflower Seed Oil*, Psyllium Seed Husk Powder*, Flax Meal, Salt, Cultured Dextrose*, Whole Quinoa*, Black Sesame Seeds*, Brown Sesame Seeds*.
