Article What is cultured wheat and why does Silver Hills Bakery use it in their products?
March 18, 2022
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 natural fermentation 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.
