Summary:

Sprouted bread is a new staple in our home thanks to the virtuous ingredients, nutty taste, and overall high quality created by this brand. They have so many varieties to choose from, but thus far, their Ancient Grains loaves have made us fans.

Sprouting grains reportedly unlocks its nutrition and aids absorption of the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients within. They also say that sprouting makes the grains more easily digestible. And I may just be a believer. Tony has had notable troubles with wheat, but he isn’t Celiac. He had tried the occasional wheat challenge with no luck, but decided to give Silver Hills Bakery a trial and what do you know… his body loves it!

Silver Hills Bakery Sprouted Ancient Grains Breads - Whole grain and baked in a nut-free, dairy-free, and vegan facility

Our first introduction to Silver Hills Bakery was their new Ancient Grains loaves:

The Queen’s Khorasan – Sprouted organic khorasan wheat (a grain reportedly found in the ancient tombs of Egyptian pharaohs and queens) is the main ingredient in this nutty tasting bread. But rather than nuts, Silver Hills Bakery adds a blend of 4 seeds to this very simplistic and wholesome loaf, which contains just 12 ingredients total! And as a natural preservative, they use their own cultured wheat – made like yogurt, but with wheat flour.

Big Red’s Bread – This loaf is very similar to The Queen’s Khorasan, but with even more exciting add-ins. In fact, it contains a blend of 21 grains, seeds, and legumes!

Both of the Ancient Grains sprouted breads from Silver Hills Bakery are very hearty in taste, yet not very dense. They are light, but not as tender as your average wheat loaf. We’ve found this “drier” texture to be standard with most sprouted bread, and actually quite like it. They tasted good as is, but are amazing when toasted. They are also naturally high in protein, fiber, manganese, and selenium.

  1. I love this bread, it is so much better than regular store bought bread. It is worth every penny. The squirrelly type is awesome with applesauce.

  2. I love this bread, but the last three loaves had a fermented smell and it was 6 days before the tag date. The smell was strong one was moldy.
