I saw it in the freezer section near the Morning Star and dairy free substitute desert stuff. I bought it, costed me about $6 (mom was not happy about it) and I was wondering if it's vegetarian or not.

8/3/2010 is the last time I consumed meat.
8/4/2010 is when I became a full blown Vegetarian and I couldn't be more proud.

I've never had it, but it looks from their website like their products have egg in them. So if you're ovo vegetarian it's fine. If you're vegan it's not.

I'm a vegetarian but I try to make sure not to have a lot of egg and dairy.

You really do need to read labels. I can't say that enough. In my local grocery stores, it's not at all unusual to find "natural" real meat items right next to the veggie faux meat items! Sometimes the labels will even look identical - for example: chicken nuggets vs. chicken free nuggets (vegan) Don't assume something is vegetarian just because of the proximity to other vegetarian foods.

It looks like Kinnikinnick bread is made for people with celiac disease or allergies to wheat and other common ingredients. Unless you need to buy special bread for those reason, it's probably not worth the extra money.

No, it was just in the same area. The bread is on racks but I didn't like what a lot of them contained in them. I do read the labels. Which is why I bought this bread. I tried remembering as much as I could. Also, the freezers were marked off as meatless etc.. stuff.

Check their website. It has nutrition/ingredient info along with a FAQ section. Every product has different ingredients. They have various types of breads. Some have eggs and at least one flavor contains casien (so do some of their other products).

$6 is ALOT for bread. Like RunnerVeggie said it is mainly marketed towards people with celiacs since it's gluten free so that's why its ridiculously expensive. Honestly I would NEVER pay that much for a product if I wasn't absolutely certain it was something I could eat and I researched it ahead of time. Also keep in mind that sometimes gluten free products have a totally different taste/texture than regular products.

I tried a gluten free rice bread once and was very disappointed. Unless you need it to be gluten free, I suggest sticking with regular wheat bread. Almost all Cobblestone breads are vegan friendly.

I only bought it cause most of the breads weren't organic and had products in it I did not want to eat.

I've never bought their bread frozen, but they do have an actual store in Edmonton and their cheese buns were rediculously good. I've never actually had gluten free bread that was that delicious before. How is it?

I haven't tried it yet. It's in my freeze until I finish up my Pepperidge Farm bread. I read the ingredients on the back of the white bread I'm currently eating and I'm not buying it again.
