Our award winning gluten free bread

Posted on June 27, 2016

This week our Gluten Free Bread launches. Our new loaf, aptly named GiFt has already won itself an award; Britain’s Best Loaf, Gluten Free loaf of the year.

Our customers have been asking us to make one for ages, so at the end of last year we built ourselves a dedicated gluten free bakery and after 39 batches we’ve got it.

This loaf is no compromise for Hobbs House Bakery, no it doesn’t taste like cardboard and no it isn’t packed full of a list of ingredients you would rather not eat. Instead this loaf is full of the good stuff, made primarily from sorghum flour (a plant based flour)  and teff flour (one of the world’s smallest gluten free  grains). Loaded with fibrous seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds and with the addition of chickpea sourdough and nutritious psyllium husks this loaf is a great healthy alternative for everyone.

Our Gluten Free Bread has been named GiFt. It is our gift to you, because of this loaf we are able to give bread to children in Tanzania. We have been working alongside the charity Ifakara Bakery Project. Through this bakery set up in Ifakara, bread is donated to malnourished children.

Their daily bread reaches children at;

  • The Ifakara St. Francis District Hospital
  • The Nazareti Leprosy Centre
  • The Ifakara Orphanage
  • The Bethlehem Centre for Children with Learning Disabilities
  • The Idete Kindergarten

By working with this bakery we enable more bread to be donated, so each time a loaf is bought a loaf will be donated from the Ifakara Bakery to the local children.

GiFt is now available online.
