Have You Heard of Sprouted Breads?

The History of Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery

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. :)
Why Sprouting is Good For You?
  • 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.
By the way, it's also good to know that their products have one or more of the following seals of approval or certifications:
  • Non-GMO
  • Whole Grain
  • Vegan
  • Kosher
To learn more about their baked goods, you can contact them via email at sales@silverhillsbakery.ca or check out their website.

I received the products for free but was not required to make a review of it. Everything was based on my unbiased opinion of the product/s mentioned above. 


  1. This is the first time I heard about sprouted breads. I like that it's easy to digest. How does the taste differ from a regular bread?

  2. I have never heard about it until now, for me it seems like they are similar with wheat bread? not sure but according to your description and to my understanding about the wheat bread they are quite similar.

  3. I have not tried this bread yet Sis but will check it out in our local Walmart. My family cannot live without bread but am great with rice.

  4. If I am not mistake this kind of bread is non GMO which is a plus to me. I rather spend money to a healthy bread nowadays. Good sharing.

  5. wow, I never knew there was a healthier way of making bread and that the sprouts can make a difference. this is a nice read, educational :)
