Silver Hills Bakery Sprouted Bread: Baked in a Nut-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan Facility


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!

Tasting Notes for Silver Hills Bakery

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. Do you offer any of your gluten-free and vegan breads for sale in the San Francisco Bay Area? Sprouts carries some of your products but they sell out very fast, and the shelves sit empty until the next delivery, which is often days away. The sliced bread (especially the variety with seeds and grains), not the buns, are what people like most.
    Your breads are by far the best gluten-free breads on the markets. Most of the usual gluten-free bread in markets here is hard as a rock and tasteless. Why not sell your bread at Whole Foods or at least somewhere close to Palo Alto, California, where I live? It would be very popular.

    Hi Alicia,
    I buy often Organic 20 Grain Train.
    The bread has a very good taste and good nutritional qualities.
    I live in Quebec and the bread is produced in BC.
    We can keep the bread fresh without problems 3 weeks that it’s not possible with other premium quality breads.
    I wonder what additives add it to keep the bread fresh as long.
    Thank you

    This bread immediately began to mold , two days after purchase. It gave off a terrible chemical smell and
    made my throat close up. I have never had bread that smelled like this, it was horrible.

    • This happened to us too; horrid acetone smell immediately upon opening the bag. From what I’ve researched, this can happen when wild yeasts infect the bread and turn starches into acetone.

      It isn’t from us opening the bag either, it’s from the factory and potentially infected machinery. I am contacting the company now, after confirming another person had this experience. I would assume they need to recall this weeks’ bread and clean the bakery.

  4. among the choices they offer, which one do you think the best overall? (healthiest – low fat, low suger, good fiber and grain, low carb) Sorry I know they all seem to be like that.


  5. 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.

  6. 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.
