About Our Bread...
(And wholesome too!) We use our flour within 48 hours of when we mill it, transferring all of the natural nutrients from the whole grain into your bread.
We use the most natural ingredients possible - butter, eggs, fresh spices and herbs, fruits and nuts - and NEVER ANY preservatives!
Our breads stay fresh at room temperature for up to 10 days.
Our sweets are all made "from scratch" from home recipes, every morning.
We guarantee freshness and quality - everyday!
It's the foundation for our whole wheat breads. We use"high plains" wheat from Montana - the highest protein wheat in the world.
We use an old fashioned "stone mill" to protect the protein, bran, vitamins and fiber of this special wheat.
Grains, nuts, seeds, dried fruits – everyday we learn more about how our bodies benefit from these natural energy sources.
We're committed to bringing you the best tasting sources of what your body needs.
On July 8, 1999, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that eligible food manufacturers (like Great Harvest) may claim:
"Diets rich in whole grain foods and other plant foods, and low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers."
Since that time, The Journal of the American Heart Association has recommended that Americans increase consumption of whole grain foods to at least three servings per day.
The folks at the FDA don't easily permit manufacturers to make these claims. Prior to this, the only nutritional claims that could be made about food related to calcium (for preventing osteoporosis) and folic acid (for healthy pregnancy).
Now, Great Harvest can make this claim on all our breads that contain at least 5l% whole grain. Here are a few that contain 100% whole grain:
Honey Whole Wheat
Cinnamon Raisin Walnut
Kansas Sunflower and Flax
Spelt Whole Grain
