Rudi's rolls out new gluten-free bread at Root Down dinner

If you're not familiar with Rudi's Organic Bakery, a Boulder-based bread company, then you should really make its acquaintance -- particularly if you are gluten-intolerant. Rudi's hasn't used artificial chemicals or preservatives in its breads since the bakery's founding in 1976, and started baking organic bread in 1990, before the federal guidelines for organic food were even developed. Point being: Rudi's makes good bread that's also good for you.

But despite demand from consumers, it didn't make a gluten-free bread -- until now. To celebrate its new line of gluten-free products, Rudi's threw a dinner party this week at Root Down, 1600 West 33rd Avenue.
