(1-5, 5 being the best)
These bagels taste more like gluten-free bread than bagels.
The texture is dry, dense and a little gritty. They are missing the traditional elasticity of an authentic bagel.
These bagels should be stored in the freezer and will keep for many months.
Glutino products are widely distributed both in Canada and the U.S.
For those who long for a bagel, these bagels will satisfy your longing but do not have the characteristics of authentic bagels.

This product and all Glutino products are manufactured in Canada. The bagels are packaged in bags of five and are frozen. The bagels are large and very closely resemble traditional gluten bagels in appearance. The manufacturer states that they are best when toasted and stored frozen. We found this to be accurate. We cut the bagel in half and toasted it. We tested them alone and with cream cheese. The bagels have a ‘gluten’ taste and are somewhat dry and gritty. Gluten is what makes a bagel chewy and elastic. Omitting the gluten has an expected affect. These bagels are more like gluten-free bread in a bagel shape.
