Nutritional studies in Scandinavia revealed that breads made with 100% rye contain more fiber, vitamin E, riboflavin, folacin, and disease fighting antioxidants than wheat based breads. Furthermore, rye bread is much lower on the glycemic index than other conventional grains. Rye bread is also recognized as having anticarcinogenic qualities that are particularly well-suited to reducing the risk of prostrate, breast, and colon cancers.
All of our bread is certified kosher bread by OK. Our Baltic Rye and Baltic Blonde are vegan; the Baltic Fruits and Nuts contains honey and is otherwise vegan.
