Udi's Gluten Free Granola Review

I was quite privileged to be offered the chance to try some incredible products from Udi's Gluten Free Foods.  I do not have any food allergies, and thankfully there is none in my family.  However, I also know that food allergies can be developed at any time in a person's life.  And if the food tastes good and is healthy, why not give it a try?

  • Udi’s Gluten Free Foods, the #1 gluten free baked goods brand, revolutionized the category when it introduced the first gluten-free bread that tastes and looks like “real” bread. 
  • Udi’s products are so delicious that you will wonder if they are truly gluten-free. 
  • Udi's products contain no artificial ingredients and very few preservatives.
  • Udi’s Gluten Free Foods are now 150 Wal-Mart stores across the country! To see if there is a Walmart near you that carries Udi’s, enter your zip code into our store locator:
I was sent 4 packages of Udi's Gluten Free Granola to try:

At this point, I have had the opportunity to try three of the four flavors.  I have not tried the original flavor, but if it is as good as the other three (and I am sure it is!), I know I will like it.  I am rather partial to the cranberry flavor, but that is because I do love cranberries.  I have gotten rather hooked on eating this granola every morning for many different reasons.  

My preferred way to eat this granola is with Greek yogurt.  I have not tried this with milk, and I have not tried it in any recipes.  Maybe I will one day, but I am completely satisfied to eat it for breakfast.  It is very filling.  In fact, one morning recently when I chose to eat something else, you know what?  I was hungry within a very short time!  

Of course, the question you might ask me is how it compares to other granola since this granola is gluten free.  Interesting you should ask!  Just days before this arrived, we had bought another name-brand granola.  I thought it was pretty good, but of course, it was not gluten free.  I tried Udi's granola, and I honestly could tell no difference in flavor.  In fact, if anything, I liked it better!  There is no way anyone would know it was gluten free (unless you told them!).

When I checked out the nutrition facts on the back, I was somewhat concerned because it seemed low on fiber compared to the other variety we had on hand.  But then I compared the serving sizes, and I discovered that the serving size listed on the back of the Udi's granola was for half of the amount the other brand listed.  Udi's was comparable on everything nutritionally speaking, and it was only one gram of fiber less than the "leading" brand.

I also looked at the ingredients.  Since reading the book Unjunk Your Junk Food, I find that I pay very close attention to the ingredients.  I mainly look for the ingredients that should not be in the food, and I was pleased to find that this granola had all the right ingredients.  Definitely an outstanding food and one that I intend to continue eating!

Want to keep up with Udi's?  

I was sent complimentary products in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated in any way, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
