“If thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens.”
Most of us have fond memories that involve bread. Perhaps your mother or grandmother baked her own bread, or you remember trips to the local bakery for fresh rolls on a Saturday morning. Maybe it was your Italian uncle’s famous focaccia garlic toast, or your grandfather’s favourite German rye bread eaten with sausage and cheese. In every instance, we remember how a good loaf of bread could turn even the simplest meal into a feast.
At True Grain, we bake the kind of bread that makes you slow down. Good bread is meant to be enjoyed. When you slow down you have more time to connect with your food, and in our case, everything we bake can be connected back to a BC organic farm. We respect the farmers who grow the organic grain we use. We make our bread without added sugar or fat because they aren’t necessary. Whether it’s a hearth-baked Red Fife sourdough or a traditional French Baguette, the flavour of the grain is always the star.
Plant based foodies, rejoice! Most of the bread we make is vegan. Our wholegrain loaves offer a great way to add more plant protein to your diet, and the high fibre will keep you going through your day.
A word about gluten
We’re often asked if we have gluten free bread and the short answer is no, we don’t. We specialize in BC-grown organic grain, so we don’t use things like almond flour or coconut flour. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t enjoy our bread. Unfortunately, those with diagnosed Celiac disease (around 1% of the population) can’t eat any gluten at all. However, for those who are sensitive to the gluten in modern wheat, there’s a good chance we can help find a loaf among our ancient grain selection that you can enjoy.
