Rather than using unhealthy preservatives in our breads and bagels, we use cultured wheat as a natural and healthy way to maintain freshness and prolong the shelf life of our products. Cultured wheat is made using a completely natural fermentation process similar to how natural yogurt is made. This produces a concentration of food grade organic acids that lower the PH of bread and delays the formation of mold. As a completely dairy free process that does not involve any form of animal products, you can rest assured that the use of cultured wheat aligns perfectly with our pledge to being kosher and vegan-friendly.

We’ve spent over 25 years focused on inspiring healthier living, through healthier choices because we believe that lifestyle and nutrition are significant to people’s happiness. The way we contribute to the health and well-being of our community is by baking sprouted whole grain, non GMO breads that not only taste great but are also some of the healthiest breads available.

We receive a lot of questions about timely and relevant issues regarding healthy living, food transparency, our company values and other issues that are facing our society, our industry and the world as a whole. Being the first verified non GMO bread in Canada that was verified by The Non GMO Project means that we get a lot of questions about GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) and genetic engineering in our nation’s food supply. We’ve tried to answer these the best we can but if you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us to continue the discussion.

Also, because we’re Canada’s leading sprouted organic bread and one of the only Canadian breads made from sprouted organic whole grains, we’re happy to educate anyone who’s interested in a healthier bread about the benefits of using sprouted grains and wholesome recipes that do not include any oil, artificial preservatives, additives, stabilizers, eggs, dairy or genetically modified (GMO) anything.

If there are any questions that we haven’t answered here or perhaps you’d like to send us a comment or share your story with us – we’d love to hear from you!
