THE BAKING PROCESS
WHAT’S IN BREAD
All bread making is based on principles that are thousands of years old. The process relies on four steps – mixing, proving/fermenting, baking and cooling – and uses flour, water, yeast and salt as the basic ingredients.
All our packaged bread lists all ingredients clearly on pack to tell consumers exactly what’s in the bread.
HOW IS IT MADE?
Our baking process is pretty much identical to how you’d bake a loaf at home but on a larger automated scale. The difference is that our mixers speed the process and remove the need for kneading the dough in the same way a home food mixer is quicker at making cake mix than mixing with a wooden spoon. Regardless of where your bread is baked, the same basic steps apply.
And what’s the greatest thing about bread for all of us? The fact that all bread is a key part of a balanced diet, whether it’s made at home, in a small craft bakery, or in a large bakery like ours.
