On occasion, I receive emails from people asking me to advertise on my blog or to write about such and such. Generally I ignore those messages as I use this site to write about what I want to write about. I got an email a little while ago from a gentleman, asking me if I would tell my readers about a new bread they’re working on getting to market. I took a while to respond, then a while to look at the information he sent, and then a little while longer to actually write this post. Don’t worry, I’m not getting anything in return for writing this post. Not even a free loaf of bread, which, unfortunately, means that I can’t vouch for its deliciousness.
Despite my lack of experience with Rightbread, I figured that it was a venture worth telling you about. It’s a joint initiative between Halifax (yay! Local!) and Toronto to create a nutritious, vegan, gluten-free bread. It sure sounds like good stuff: 97.5 calories (per slice), 3.9 g fat, 9 g carbs, 5.1 g fibre, 5.1g protein. The only downside is 237 mg of sodium per slice. The key ingredients include: chia seeds, soy bean flour, psyllium husks, and ground almonds. And it’s sweetened with maple syrup!
