Because we use a traditional process to create our breads, they may have a shorter shelf life than the commercial breads you’re accustomed to consuming. This is because most commercial breads are made using preservatives that extend the life of the loaf. We leave out additives when we make our bread to achieve a better flavor and create an overall healthier product for our customers.
Our Bread Storage Suggestions:
- If it’s crusty (like baguette, wheat, rye, or five grain) keep the bread in something that will breathe—a paper bag, a towel, a bread box—at room temperature.
- If it’s soft (like brioche), keep the bread in plastic, also at room temperature.
- Bread should never be stored in the refrigerator; it’s the perfect temperature range to make the bread stale quickly.
- For long-term storage, our breads can be frozen very successfully.
To reheat crusty bread that has become dry, brush the crust with water and place it directly in an oven for a few minutes until the bread is crisp on the outside and warm on the inside. Have any bread storage tricks that we didn’t mention? Share with us! We love talking bread.
