Gluten free Bread in Berne

Hi,

So let's start with it's not for me, but I'm having visitors this weekend that aren't gluten intolerant but still don't want gluten.

My favourite dish to serve is pulled pork, but now I need gluten free bread, anyone know if Migros or any bakery making that in Berne?

Or recommend a gluten free alternative to pull pork bread

Best Regards David

Not a fan of the pre-packaged gluten-free breads in the migros or coop. Some of the German supermarkets have ok-ish breads (e.g. EDEKA)

Not sure if it's an option for you, but I used to bake my own bread using a combo of gluten-free flours, eg brown rice flour, coconut flour, potato flour.

Also found a few bakeries that offer gluten free products. Unfortunately I don't know any bakeries in Bern, but hoping another member does. Here are two recommended bakeries that bake glutenfree breads in Switzerland.

I pass Meikirch and Uettligen on a daily basis almost on my bike rides so I could easily stop buy in Meikirch on my way home! THANK YOU!

Gluten free bread is almost always revolting.

You'd be better serving some rösti or chips with the meat.

And, unless you have a genuine gluten enteropathy, entirely unnecessary .

If you had eaten my way of serving pulled pork you would beg for gluten free bread. Jokes aside bread would be good to have for breakfast, so still really useful advice from lorena1.

I guess if I were a douce bag I would take that discussion, with a pregnant woman (that now eat gluten free) that have travelled far to visit me. But since I'm from Sweden I'm natural at avoiding conflicts and therefore simply serve a gluten free diet...

Re: Gluten free Bread in Berne

Coop do some frozen GF kaiser rolls that are not bad: good flavor and texture, sturdy enough for pulled pork. They're the sort you have to finish baking at home yourself.

To be honest I would even choose those over GF bread from a bakery unless you plan to revisit that bakery every.single.morning. Once it's baked GF bread loses quality unbelievably fast compared to normal bread.

The gluten free products sold at Migros etc. are the worst! They really are so so unhealthy for you, I'd rather eat gluten (and I have an intolerance) than go for those products. Thanks Lorena for the tip, I'll check those two places out!

Get sourdough bread.

"In the sourdough process, moreover, gluten is broken down and rendered virtually harmless. In one small Italian study, published in the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, in January 2011, coeliac patients fed sourdough bread for 60 days had no clinical complaints, and their biopsies showed no changes in the intestinal lining..."
