Our Artisan/Sprouted Grain Bread Story
At GFB we are true Artisan and Master bread makers. We hand knead and hand form all our breads. We pride ourselves in using only the highest quality ingredients. We use unbleached, unbromated, non gmo flour and single source all our grains, seeds and legumes for our sprouted grain bread.
Sprouted Grain Bread:
Better Than the Rest.
Sprouted Grains have many health benefits and they have more nutrients than mature grains. They also have less starch and are easier to digest.
In our Sprouted bread line we sprout all our own organic grains, seeds and legumes ( some with a 1000+ year old grain lineage ) in house. We start by soaking the mixture in water and when the sprout is just perfect and has its most nutritional value we grind it into a paste to use in our bread. We also have a wild yeast sourdough starter that adds a true probiotic to the bread along with the fermented sprouted paste. Packed with protein, superfood and probiotics it creates a “ clean label pulse “ product. Best of all it taste great.
Our Ancient Grain Bread
Fruits and vegetables grown from Heirloom Seeds are largely considered to taste better and have greater nutritional value. The same goes for Heirloom Bread Grains.
Chef John has hunted down a source for heirloom Kamut grains from Egypt and Spelt grains from Iran. Each has an heirloom lineage over 5000 years old! These grains, combined with Chef John’s grain sprouting method, makes for one of the most remarkably flavorful and nutritious sprouted grain breads available.
Clean Label Bread
