Silver Hills Sprouted Bread is Baked in a Nut-Free, Dairy-Free Facility

Sprouting grains reportedly unlocks 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. My husband 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 Sprouted Bread a try. And what do you know… his body loves it!

Silver Hills Sprouted Bread is the Ultimate in Whole Grains

This is hands down, my favorite store-bought brand of bread. I like to bake our own bread, when possible. But it’s trickier these days since I don’t always have an oven or proper supplies. So I’ve been leaning on Silver Hills Sprouted Bread a little more.

The first time I bought bread by Silver Hills Bakery was probably more than a decade ago. Their Squirrelly loaf was on sale, and looked deliciously hearty. It didn’t disappoint. Since then, I’ve tried several different varieties of Silver Hills Sprouted Bread. They’re all wonderfully hearty, earthy, and “nutty” (but nut-free) in taste. But there are a few that I repeatedly buy. Since they have twelve different loaves, I’ll include specifics on my favorites, followed by a quick list of the rest.

Additional Types of Silver Hills Sprouted Bread

We received a sample of their English Muffins on launch. They weren’t quite up to snuff (definitely some production issues!). But they have hit the mainstream, so I’m guessing those have been worked out.

The also bake Bagels, Burger Buns, and Hot Dog Buns, but we haven’t found them in store yet!

Love this Sprouted Bread

5.0 rating
February 12, 2020

I’ve been purchasing this brand off and on for years – mostly when I would see it on sale. But lately, I noticed that Target stocks it all the time for a fair price. I’ve been buying the “Big 16” and it’s just as delicious as the rest. Love how “nutty” this bread is. It has so much rich grain flavor and freezes well. I keep it in the freezer and toast up as many slices as I need.

  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.

    Thanks
    Emma

  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.
