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 Circle-K kosher. Our Baltic Rye and Baltic Blonde are vegan; the Baltic Fruits and Nuts contains honey and is otherwise vegan.

For decades bread lovers hungering for 100% healthful sourdough rye have had to freight it from Europe at high cost. Now, thanks to Black Rooster Food, you can buy a loaf handmade in America.
