yes I now- that's part of the reason I said it is a recipe for digestive distress.

If you want an occasional non-paleo food (like a grilled cheese sandwich), then just eat it. IMHO, you are better off doing that than trying to create paleo-substitute foods (as long as you keep it occasional). BTW, I'm assuming your not gluten intolerant.

It has psyllium fiber added. You'd be a very sad panda if you ate an entire loaf!

I've tried it, and it was not particularly tasty. At all. And by "not particularly tasty", I mean it was really bad to the point of being inedible. Sh*tty bread is not better than no bread.

This has been covered. http://paleohacks.com/questions/137894/opinions-on-paleobread/137900#137900

In general I am against it for three reasons:

1) I cannot trust Julian's Bakery after what happened with their smart carb bread: http://decodedscience.com/nutritional-labeling-fda-oversight-not-what-youd-expect/15446

2) I feel that, in general, Paleo baking is a gateway and I prefer stay away

3) The cost is absurd -- $8 for 14 slices of bread? I'd rather drop $8 on a side of bacon, or 4 dozen eggs, or any of a hundred other things that bring me more pleasure than a slice of dry grainy bread (note I have not had it, this is what my coworker says)

The coconut one looks like a recipe for digestive distress. I can't imagine it tasting very good either, or satisfying one in the same way that a starchy piece of bread would. In fact, I'd probably end up eating the whole loaf and then feeling like I just wasted my money. I would not make the purchase.

Honestly, and this is just my opinion, it just doesn't taste very good. So, no.

I ordered it, took forever, didn't travel well to the Midwest. Looked bad but I tried it anyway and it was horrible. It may have spent to much time on a warm truck but they never responded to my email when I tried to see when it actually shipped. It came a few weeks after they said it would but I was willing to give them a chance. They remove negative comments from their facebook page as well. Bad product and bad service as far as I am concerned.

I should have done a charge back.

I recently tried both the almond and the coconut. The almond was awful- strange soggy french toast feel, didn't toast well, has no taste- could use some sea salt, honey or molasses. It's mostly of egg whites and psyllium fiber. The coconut was a little better, firmer, and it toasted OK but gave me indigestion. Just not worth buying again, the price is ridiculous. If you were desperate for something to make a sandwich with I guess you could tolerate it, with strong tasting condiments. I would rather splurge on the rice bread from Food of Life when I feel the need for toast with my eggs.Tasty and relatively harmless.

All Julian Bakery breads are tested with Medallion Labs!

Here are the Lab test they gave me on the Paleo Breads:

Looks gross. There are way better "paleo bread" recipes freely available on the web, and you can make them yourself for much cheaper.

I'll add something to the discussion. I also view Paleo baking as a gateway that can get out of hand. However, there are some things that many of us have a deep emotional connection too. I used to love tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich which is not exactly paleo. My wife made a loaf of coconut bread and using some panchetta, prosciutto, and a nice cheddar made a phenomenal "grilled cheese sandwich" to go along with the tomato soup. While not the strictest adherence to a primal diet, an occasional treat (especially one made this way) is not going to kill you. On a side note, that's pretty spendy for bread when it can be baked at home fairly easily.
