Our unique sourdough Rye Bread is baked using an old family recipe that is over 120 years old. It is an “everyday-bread” and most people never get tired of eating it because it is tasty, healthy and easy to digest. Our bread is perfect for everyone who wants to stay away from wheat. It is not gluten free, but it contains NO wheat, NO yeast, NO dairy, NO sugar and NO eggs!
Rye is a cereal grain, closely related to barley. Since the middle ages, it served as the main bread cereal in most areas east of the French-German border. The rye that we grow is an old European variety that most people can digest, because it has not been changed in any way by modern process and breeders.
To ensure that all valuable nutrients of the whole grain and the wealth of vitamins in the germ remain intact, we carefully mill the grain into coarse flour with our stone mill every week. We use our own sourdough starter culture and the dough is hand kneaded. That’s why the texture can be different from week to week. This occurs due to temperature, weather and the consistency of the flour. If it looks dry on the first slice, just cut a bigger chunk of it. Usually it is fine a little deeper inside. When the bread appears to be too moist inside, it is because it is very fresh; just let it sit for a day or toast the slices.
Depending on how you store the bread, it is good for up to ten days. Most people cut it into thin slices and keep it in the fridge. Never store it next to white bread. If a loaf is too much for you, just freeze part of it or slices of it. It freezes very well.
