Schar Gluten-Free Breads Review

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Schar for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Not long ago I let you know that I was looking forward to receiving samples of Schar’s re-launched gluten-free breads. I have since tried those breads and was happily surprised at how good they are! Here is a photo of what I received:

First, I want to let you know about the safety of Schar products. I could not find this information on their web site, so I contacted them and received the following information:

“Schar does not use gluten in any of their products or facilities. It is a 100% dedicated gluten-free facility. We test every ingredient before it enters the facility to ensure they come in under 20ppm and we test every batch after it’s made to ensure it is gluten-free as well.

We are pleased to say that all of our products and ingredients are non-GMO. Also, we can assure you that with the opening of our new facility here in the U.S., we will continue to use the high quality ingredients that we are using in Europe. All of our ingredients are and will continue to be non-GMO and MSG free.”

With that knowledge, I felt safe trying the breads. The package happened to arrive on a day that I was making spaghetti for dinner, and the baguettes went perfectly with it.

I heated them in the oven according to the instructions, and then added garlic butter. My family loved it, even the gluten eating ones, and garlic bread with our spaghetti was a real treat. The bread was crispy on the outside and soft inside. I did not try the bread without heating it, but it felt soft even when it was cold.

Next, I tried the Ciabatta rolls. I was impressed with all three of the breads, but this one I was the most impressed with. The rolls were incredibly soft, even before heating. Honestly, I just kept squeezing one. I couldn’t believe how soft it was.

Gluten-free son and I shared these rolls. We both ate one that was heated in the oven along with soup, and one as is with a snack. The package says par-baked and tells you to heat the rolls. However, the bread is cooked and it’s not doughy at all in the middle, so eating it as is worked fine.

These rolls were so good I was too busy eating to remember a photo, but I did catch part of one.


Lastly, I tried the submarine sandwich rolls. It had been a long time since I had a sub sandwich, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! These rolls also instruct you to heat them first, which I did, but I’m sure they would work fine as is if you packed one for lunch.

I missed being able to put cheese on my sandwich, but since I’m now eating tomatoes, I made my sandwich with turkey breast, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise.

It was delicious! The bread was soft and didn’t fall apart. It worked perfectly. Since I only received two of these, my gluten eaters didn’t try them, but I think that anyone would enjoy this bread, gluten-free or not. When was the last time you had a sub sandwich?

There was one thing I did not like about these breads, and it has nothing to do with their taste or texture. They all contain soy protein. I am not completely soy free, but I do try to avoid it. I’m glad to know that it is GMO free soy, which helps, but I would still prefer that the breads didn’t have any. For that reason, these breads are something I would eat occasionally, but not regularly. Considering soy is one of the top eight allergens, I think Schar would do well to remove the soy protein from their products.

Having said that, the quality of these breads certainly makes Schar a leader in gluten-free products.

    with the expense of GF foods its great to be able to get samples. Try a bit before shelling out the money on what we all hope will be the best bread. Thank you so much for posting this!!

    Thanks for the info. I went to the website and signed up for the Schar Club, then for the sample. When I tried to download coupons; tried to download the coupon printer it said I needed, but it wouldn’t work and I couldn’t find any place on their site for help. Guess I’ll try another time if I can find the site again.

    Schär is about the only GF brand we can easily buy at our local grocery store without venturing to specialty shops and we love it. A bit pricey, so the breads are always a special treat for my husband, but we enjoy their breads as well as their spaghetti and general all purpose mixes.

    I spent summer ’10 in Germany and fell in love with Schär products. I have not tried anything of theirs that was not amazing. You would be surprised at how many things they make. I just wish they would introduce more of them here. :-) Glad they are reintroducing the bread, though!

    I must say these are the only GF, egg free, diary free, nut free bread that’s not yucky in the mouth:) they make some really delicious table crackers as well. I usually buy the rolls from Wegmans so if any of you have wegmans near you, def grab some cuz they r super delish:)

    I have some of the baguettes waiting to become French Dips. However, a point I feel needs to be made. You ding Schar on having soy protein. It is hard enough finding good tasting GF products (we have FAR too much of the extra-horrid Ener-G stuff here that is just inedible as an example) and part of what makes many GF products tasteless to vile-tasting is that someone has gotten the idea that just because someone is gluten free, they must also be soy, corn, dairy, salt, and nut free. Some of us JUST need it to be gluten free. If we keep pressuring for things to be “everything” free, we have to then accept that food will never taste good again. Seriously, someone HAS to have a line that is GF and Non-GMO, so we can still enjoy our food. Hopefully, Schar stays in that market.

      I agree that we are happy to find a good tasting bread that is both gluten free AND nonGMO. taking everything else out will mean we have to settle for unpalatable food. yuck!

    I’ve never tried this bread before. My daughter in law told me about it. Thinking I might try it.

  8. Judith says

    I need to know if they use any sweetener in them; and if so, what? I recently eliminated Agave after finding out how high it is in Fructose! Also, are the gluten free products available in Vegan choices? Thank you.
