Baking our gluten free bread
Our loaves are made in a dedicated gluten, wheat and milk free bakery in Newburn, Newcastle, by a team of expert Warburtons bakers. We use traditional kneaders, proofers and bread ovens, and techniques we have perfected during over a century of baking, to ensure we always deliver the great taste you've come to expect from Warburtons – the only difference is, we've taken out the wheat, dairy and gluten.
We use a range of quality ingredients to achieve this. Our special blend of starches replaces the wheat to give the bread thickness, while oil is essential for creating a soft and pliable mixture. Just like traditional bread, we use gluten and wheat free yeast to help the bread rise, and give it a light texture and rich flavour.
Innovation and quality
We're always looking for new ideas and ingredients from around the world to try in our recipes – we've got a test bakery on site, where there's always something exciting going on.
Most recently, we have worked tirelessly to develop our new Farmhouse bread recipe – which has a chewier texture and is less 'cake like' – a problem affecting many gluten free loaves. It is also dairy free, and comes in a larger loaf size so you can enjoy it for longer.
The final step of the process is quality control, which is very important to us – every day, our bakers examine the day's bread to ensure the flavour, texture, size and consistency of each loaf lives up to our high standards. Loaves are then delivered daily to supermarkets and convenience stores across the country, so you can enjoy it while it's deliciously fresh.

We fortify our gluten free bread with calcium for strong bones and teeth, and iron, which helps transport oxygen around the body. These are particularly essential nutrients for people with coeliac disease, where damage to the gut lining often causes calcium and iron deficiency. Our seeded bread is a source of protein and is high in fibre to promote digestive health. It also contains the added nutrients of millet, linseed, poppy and sunflower seeds – such as magnesium, iron, and vitamin B6.
All of our breads are also suitable for vegetarians and those on a dairy free diet.
