The first loaf of bread was baked more than 14,000 years ago. At For the Love of Bread, we believe this staple of daily life should be celebrated as a source of nutrition and energy. That’s why our bread is made the old way. From a time before industrial milling. When organic wheat was milled using traditional stones that preserved the nutrient dense bran and germ. When the only way to leaven bread was slowly, using a sourdough starter that was passed down through the generations.
To bring you this bread we source our flour directly from a French mill that has been in the same family since 1895. A mill committed to sustainable development that sources 100% organic wheat from local farmers. Why French wheat? Because it is naturally low in gluten-forming proteins, and when slowly fermented in a sourdough environment with nothing more than water and salt, produces a flavorful, nutritious, and easy to digest loaf of wholesome bread. All of this so you can love bread again.
