Udi's vs. Rudi's
Both Udi's and Rudi's are located in Colorado. Udi's gluten-free breads are slightly cheaper than Rudi's (MSRP $5.99). You can order individual loaves of Udi's bread, but Rudi's only sells their gluten-free breads online in a case of 8 loaves.
A slice of Rudi's bread is a little larger than Udi's and is a bit denser and thicker. Rudi's slices are larger than other gluten-free breads, but still smaller than gluten bread. Rudi's multigrain is as soft as Udi's, but the other two Rudi's varieties aren't as soft. Udi's does stay fresh for a longer period at room temperature - five to seven days. Of course, that is to be expected given that Rudi's is made from all natural ingredients.
So, what is the verdict? My daughter and I prefer Udi's over Rudi's for sandwich bread. Rudi's multigrain is a close second for me, but not my daughter. Rudi's original sandwich bread needs improvement. Udi's white is much better. We will definitely be purchasing Rudi's cinnamon raisin bread regularly!
