Product Review: Nada Bits Gluten Free Breadcrumb Substitute

Screen Shot 2014-03-27 at 9.46.07 AMJust a hint of crunch and flavor can turn an ordinary meal or snack into an exciting, fun eating experience.

Nada Bits are evenly crushed, gluten free, nut free, sodium free, and cholesterol-free corn tortilla chip crumbs that can be used as a breadcrumb substitute to coat, top or layer.


Nada Bits are super versatile. Available in two flavors, original and lemon, these crunchy, corn chip crumbs liven up soups and chili, put a crunchy spin on salads and add crunch to desserts. The ways to use Nada Bits are endless; try them as a crust, in cobbler, as a breadcrumb substitute or as a gluten-free mac & cheese topping too!  See more recipe ideas for great ways to use Nada Bits!

Nada Bits were first introduced in April 2013 and have been available online since September.  I recently had the chance to try Nada Bits for the first time.

I used the Original flavor to ‘’bread’’ chicken. The Nada Bits gave the chicken a crunchy and flavorful crust, and wasn’t soggy— like some of the other gluten free breadcrumbs and mixes I’ve tried.

Nada Bits sturdy texture means that they don’t get soggy when mixed in soups, chili, ice cream or yogurt. They stand up to baking or frying.

Nada Bits Lemon is a unique addition to your pantry.  It is sweetened with a little sugar (3 grams per a serving), so it adds lemony sweetness and crunch to foods like baked fish, yogurt, and ice cream or it could be used on top of a fruit crisp.

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while NOT eating gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.
