NOT many eight-year-olds can say they have a bread named af­ter them.

In fact, Aden Horvath might be the only one.

The Bud­erim young­ster is the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind Aden’s Choice – a range of gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free breads that were created by his mum Natasha and have now been picked up by one of Aus­tralia’s largest spe­cial­ist bak­ery com­pa­nies.

Natasha, who turned her health around by chang­ing her diet al­most 20 years ago, spent months try­ing to cre­ate a “gut friendly” bread that had the taste and tex­ture of “real” tra­di­tional bread.

Aden’s Bread is not the first of its kind but Natasha said many oth­ers were heavy, cake-like and dense.

“Af­ter much ex­per­i­ment­ing, I came up with a bread recipe that’s ex­tremely palat­able and re­sem­bles real tra­di­tional bread in ev­ery way, but is suit­able for peo­ple with di­ges­tive and au­toim­mune is­sues that ex­clude tra­di­tional breads from their di­ets,” she said.

But it didn’t hap­pen overnight.

Natasha spent count­less days and nights ex­per­i­ment­ing in the kitchen be­fore com­ing up with the right mix.

“It was like a bomb went off in my kitchen some days,” she said.

“I was bak­ing up to four or six loaves a day, try­ing to crack the code and there were times I hon­estly didn’t think I was go­ing to get there.

“But that fate­ful day the loaf came out of the oven and it was just per­fect – that was the day Aden’s Choice was born.”

Her hus­band Stephen con­tacted Kim Car­ri­gan, the CEO of SOL Breads, a Bris­bane-based spe­cialty or­ganic whole­sale bak­ery which dis­trib­utes prod­ucts across Aus­tralia, as well as ex­port­ing to the USA, Philip­pines, Malaysia, and In­done­sia.

The cou­ple was in­vited to the com­pany’s Bris­bane of­fice for a meet­ing and of­fered a con­tract the mo­ment com­pany ex­ec­u­tives tasted the bread.

Aden’s Choice will be launched this month and will ini­tially be sold online, with the ul­ti­mate aim of wider dis­tri­bu­tion on to supermarket shelves.
