It began in 1989 at the Silver Hills Guest House, a wellness resort tucked away in the beautiful and serene Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. Rooted in a philosophy of holistic, healthy living, guests to the resort were taught the benefits of positive lifestyle choices as a means of promoting health and achieving a higher quality of life.
The guesthouse staff soon discovered they were unable to find healthy, wholesome bread that aligned with their dietary values, so they decided to make their own unique sprouted bread. It was out of this desire to inspire healthier living through healthier choices that Silver Hills Bakery was born.
Are you too wondering how a sprouted bread differ from other kinds of bread? Well, I read that Silver Hills have their own and unique process in which they clean, rinse and soak their grains in water until they begin to sprout. By sprouting the grains, their nutrients are released making it easier for our bodies to enjoy digest and absorb the grain's bounty of nutrients. So, unlike what I thought, they don't use seeds but a plant, and to reiterate, the latter is easier to digest. :)
As far as the taste is concerned, I love it. Seriously! So far, I've tasted three of them and I am seriously loving each bite! Those four (4) slices of bread you see are all for my breakfast. I have tried it with Nutella and butter but I thought it's better as it is. :)
- Digestion - Digestibility is improved as enzyme-inhibitors are broken down making it easier four our bodies to digest and enjoy.
- Nutrition - Essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are naturally unlocked and released during sprouting.
- Absorption - Valuable nutrients are made more "bioavailable" so our bodies can absorb their bounty of goodness.
- Whole Grain
