Health and Bread
I have a specialized diet, so I can't eat bread right?
Are you eating less sugar these days? Sensitive to wheat? Counting carbs? If you said yes you're not alone. Today's consumer is exceptionally health conscience and that's a good thing!
People understand the goodness of bread and fibre, but want alternatives to the traditional options. More and more people are looking for better choices in the food they eat but feel they'll be giving up some of the foods they love.
La Baguette has developed a whole line of products that meet these health-smart needs without compromising on taste or enjoyment. Yes enjoyment! The Bakers create works of art everyday that just happen to be very tasty! Eating good, healthy food does not need to lessen the quality, good taste and real enjoyment of eating something crafted by true artisans.
Listed below are three lines of breads that all have a special quality. Each one is unique, delicious and specialized.
This "back to basics" bread has won a "People's Choice Award" in the Best Bread Category. Great news for a bread with no added sugar, yeast or fats. The secret is using a specialized starter and time. If you want the details...you can ask the bakers, but most people just want to start eating!
What do you get when you add healthy ingredients to already healthy bread that contains no added sugars, yeast or fats? By adding fruits, nuts and vegetables to your sourdough bread you have a "meal-in-a-loaf"!
For those with wheat sensitivities, Spelt could be just what the Doctor orders...literally! Spelt is a "low gluten" flour. For many with wheat sensitivities, this means tha ability to eat a bread that is 'normal'. Unlike other wheat substitutes like rice flour for example, Spelt can be used like regular flour. Even those who are not wheat sensitive love Spelt as a wheat alternative.
These are only three of many breads that go way beyond the "would you like white or whole wheat with that?" category of ordinary breads. In the same way you go to Granville Island looking at the glass blowers and sculptors, you need to make some time to visit the bread artists at La Baguette. The art is in the food.
