Truth in Labeling

Our policy is truth in labeling; we will tell you exactly what is in our products, so you can make an informed choice at the point of purchase.

Our Sourdough bread is real sourdough containing only flour, water and salt and undergoes long fermentation of 28 hours. If the ingredients list on other “sourdough bread” contains yeast or has been fermented under 20 hours, then it is not real sourdough.
