HFCS Free – Bread

Posted on July 3, 2008 by Allie


Okay, so here’s the first installment of HFCS Free.  If you have a food you love and can’t find a good HFCS-free replacement, leave a comment or e-mail me at AlliesAnswers at gmail dot com, and I’ll try to find a substitute for you.  I’ll put up a new HFCS-free post every Thursday.

Noelle says:

“Bread was and has been the biggest disappointment for me. My grocery store sells a number of excellent local breads, but they don’t match the softness of the brand name breads. I’ll keep looking, though.”

I can’t eat wheat, so I eat something called White Rice Loaf, and I wouldn’t recommend it, even though it doesn’t contain HFCS.  My husband, however, is a wheat-eater.  Sometimes he’ll pick up a loaf of bread from the bakery down the street from his office.  In the summer, I buy him bread from the Mennonite bakers at our little local farmer’s market.  But it’s nice to have a go-to national brand of bread that is free of HFCS & partially hydrogenated oils.

Pepperidge Farm’s 100% Natural product line is my pick.  I’ve never tasted any of the breads, but they get my husband’s seal of approval.  100% Natural Breads don’t contain any artificial colors or preservatives and come in 100% Whole Wheat, 9 Grain, German Dark Wheat, Honey Flax, and Sprouted Wheat.  And they are available at most major grocery stores.

  2. That’s great! That used to be my brand of choice a few years back, and then I switched for some reason I can’t remember. I guess I’ll switch back now! Thanks!

    this is a semi-local business to me (only one state away…that counts right?) And I love their breads! No HFCS to be found.

  5. I buy all of our bread, flour, cookies, etc. from an online company called Berlin Natural Bakery. NO artificial ingrediants whatsoever. I cannot eat oat or milk products, but can eat spelt (very high protein wheat). Best of all, they taste great! Even our children who are very picky eaters love it!
    There are other spelt bread & pasta’s out there…not so good. I searched high and low to find one that works and this is it.

  6. This Website is awesome!! Where have you guys been all my life! I just got some bread from “Arnold”( which I’ve always respected)that said it was HCFS free,and I thought “wow how great!” Turns out after reading the label, it has Sucralose which is just as bad as Aspertame! I am returning it! Why can’t they just use Honey, or Sucrose (very different from sucralose) which are totally natural and don’t wreak havoc with our brain chemistry, metabolism or increase cravings? It’s not rocket science! HFCS is not the only thing we need to be wary of. To be honest, I’m a bit concerned about what hideous chemical they’re are going to come up with next! God Bless you Allie, just remember in your hunting for great products to consider our pocketbooks.
    Happy Eating

  7. I just ran across the PF 100% Natural bread in the store last week. I had been buying bread from my local bakery, but then I moved, and now my new local bakery serves bricks instead of loaves of bread. Anyway, I was so psyched to find this in the regular grocery store. I guarantee it’s the only loaf of sandwich bread in the most stores that doesn’t HFCS. I bought the 100% whole wheat kind and it’s yummy.

    Great website. Thanks!

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
