We are strongly aware of the fact that gluten free bread has a tendency to fall apart easily. This is not surprising given the fact that it is gluten that is the main glue in this foodstuff. However, some brands are better than others, so we have tried to feature those that have a reputation for staying whole rather than crumbling.
If you have the time to make your own we would strongly suggest that you give doing so a go. This opens up the option for you to experiment and find the best combination of gluten free flours, and use them. You can find out more about flour substitutes on our main gluten free page.

Gluten free soughdough loaf cooking method
Start by combining the wet ingredients in a large bowl. Make sure that the ingredients are at room temperature. It is very important to combine the ingredients thoroughly. Now combine the dry ingredients and slowly incorporate them into the wet mix. This will take at least 20 minutes to do by hand. It all has to be thoroughly mixed for the recipe to work.
When it is ready pour the resulting batter into a well-greased 9×5 loaf tin. Put it into a pre-heated 375F for around 60 minutes. Use a skewer to check it is finished. If the skewer comes out clean the loaf is done.
You should leave it to stand in the tin for about 10 minutes then turn it out onto a rack to finish cooling. Only attempt to slice this loaf when it is completely cooled.
