Gluten-free bakers are well aware of the challenges of creating a good loaf of homemade bread. Some persevere, tweaking, tweaking, and tweaking yet again, looking for the right results - a moist springy loaf of bread with traditional yeasty flavor.
Out of frustration, others throw in the towel and head to the grocery for a loaf of Udi's. Understandable for sure.
In my research and tweaking of gluten-free bread recipes, I find that a combination of both xanthan gum and guar gum creates a synergistic effect resulting in a superior loaf of gluten-free bread.
