You can find high-quality gluten-free bread mixes formulated to meet the needs of people who have an intolerance to the gluten contained in wheat. This is a challenge because gluten is what helps a yeast bread rise and have its light and airy texture. Mixes use a variety of non-wheat flours and ingredients such as guar gum and xanthan gum, and many require using eggs for the best results. Here’s a list of gluten-free bread mixes that will suit your needs and bread cravings, whether you’re hungry for a whole grain bread, a sandwich, bagels, or a delicious pizza.

    You can use this mix for pizza dough as well as for yeast bread. It gets rave reviews from many who say the resulting loaf is the best-tasting of any, whether store-bought or homemade.

    Bob's Red Mill Homemade Wonderful GF Bread Mix

    Bob's Red Mill products are always of the best quality. This mix is a gluten-free yeast bread mix that can be made by hand or in your bread machine. Unlike many gluten-free bread mixes, it has no rice flour. This is good news because there are now warnings about consuming too much U.S.-grown rice and rice products due to arsenic content. Instead, this mix uses whole grain sorghum flour, potato starch, cornstarch, pea protein powder, and tapioca flour. Bob's Red Mill reformulated it in 2016 to eliminate some types of flour and ingredients by customer request. It is also vegan and vegetarian, whereas some other mixes include dairy products such as whey. However, the directions call for an egg, so a substitution must still be made for vegans. All Bob's Red Mill gluten-free products are made in a dedicated gluten-free facility and precisely tested with R5-ELISA tested to confirm they have no trace of gluten.
