Great Harvest’s whole wheat bread is made from the freshest ingredients. There is not a single ingredient that you cannot pronounce or proudly recognize as pure and simple. That’s rare. Grocery store brands need to maintain a long shelf life and contain some ingredients right out of a science fiction book.
Five pure and simple ingredients are the hallmark of our legendary whole grain breads:
1. Fresh-ground whole-wheat flour
2. Filtered water
3. Fresh yeast
4. A pinch of salt
5. Something sweet (usually a local honey).
We believe bread is best when you keep it simple. It’s even better when you use the highest quality ingredients you can find. You can taste it and your body benefits from it.
Just like fresh-ground coffee beans make a better cup of coffee, fresh-ground grains of wheat make a better tasting – and better for you – loaf of bread.
As far as preservatives go, forget about it! Great Harvest breads have never been made with preservatives or artificial additives of any kind…and they never will. Thanks to our special scratch-made process, our breads still stay fresh for up to ten days (if you can keep your hands off it that long!)
