Panera's Rosemary Focaccia gluten-free bread roll offers a flavorful alternative for consumers who avoid the consumption of food items that contain gluten.

The roll is made with a variety of nourishing ingredients, including olive oil, sprouted chia and flax seeds, as well as broccoli and whole-grain white sorghum, which is said to add a nutty flavor to the gluten-free bread. Although Panera does make many of its baked goods in-store, the gluten-free Rosemary Foccacia Roll is set apart from the rest and made off-site in order to prevent cross-contamination.

As a QSR chain that largely specializes in baked goods, fresh breads and sandwiches, Panera is now making room for more options on its menu that don't include bread at all with a range of soups and salads.
