What is Essene Bread?

It is how bread was made before they developed a Flour Mill. Essene Bread was made in ancient times by the Essenes.  The Essenes were a Jewish religious group that flourished from the second century BC to the first century AD and are credited with the technique and basic recipes for Essene Bread.  

Bread, the way it used to be made

Essene Bread is a simple yet very wholesome and highly nutritious food made from 100% sprouted grains and water – nothing else.  Essene Bread contains no yeast, salt, flour or added oil.

 

While Essene Bread does contain gluten (because it is made from wheat and rye) the enzymes necessary to break down gluten are activated during the sprouting process so are a part of the nutritional content.

 

Breads made from flour do not contain these enzymes. The sprouting process changes the starch into maltose and other enzymes that are readily assimilated by the body.  This makes it an ideal food for people with food allergies and is recommended for all blood types (The Eat Right Diet by Dr. Peter D'Adamo). The bread is cooked at very low temperature until it forms a crust and remains very moist inside unlike normal flour milled breads.

Essene bread is a Low Glycemic Index (low GI) food with a high nutritional value giving your body sustained energy over time. 100 grams is all that is needed as a meal serving. 

How to use Essene Bread

The newly released Slices add total versatility to your meal options because they do not crumble. They can be sliced in half and topped with your favorite toppings, or toasted and sliced in half to add your favorite toppings.

These are some of our favourite toppings:

  • Poached Egg and mineral rich salt

  • Avocado smashed with a drizzle of balsamic and mineral rich salt

  • Cottage or Feta cheese and tomato with a little mineral rich salt

  • Organic butter and Almond Butter (omg…this is so yum !!)

  • Butter and Honey

The traditional Cob Loaf can be broken into small pieces, heated in a pot with a little water and eaten as a porridge or cereal with toppings like your favorite milks (almond or soy if you’re not eating dairy), yoghurts (coconut), and fruit.  The Cob can be difficult to slice without crumbling so if you like to eat your bread toasted or as a slice with a topping you might be better to order the Slices.  The Slices can still be crumbled or chopped into small pieces and served the same way making them really versatile.

Our bread is now packed with an oxygen pouch which is a safe non toxic, no preservative way of removing oxygen from the bag.  No oxygen means no bacteria can grow. This means your bread will stay fresh for 2 weeks in the packet if unopened.   Once opened it needs to be stored in the fridge and will keep for up to 2 weeks, however we recommended that you store it in the freezer and take out what you need as necessary for the best possible freshness.
