About our German Breads
Germany has the largest variety of breads with more than 300 basic kinds of bread, producing more than 1,000 types of small bread-rolls and pastries. Our World German Bakery has been baking our 6 styles of the most popular German breads for more than 30 years.
Our Old World Bakery bakes a Farmers Bread, Bauernbrot, our Old World Rye, Russian Rye, Dark Rye and Komis Bread, as well as our Pretzels, and Sesame Seed, Poppy Seed, Kaiser, German Bread, and Pretzel Rolls every day.
Using recipes handed down through our family, we follow traditional German bread making laws and ingredients when baking our breads; rye flour, wheat flour, baker’s yeast, water, salt and a sour. We use a combination of rye and wheat flour in our bread, and it’s that ratio of rye to wheat flour in the dough, that gives each of these breads their unique character and taste.
In addition, the size and shape of the bread can impart their own character to the breads.
Rye bread has notable health benefits when compared to white bread, it's higher in fiber, more dense and has a stronger flavor than breads made with just wheat flour. Our rye breads are a good source of protein, calcium and iron.
Our rye bread uses between 90%-100% rye flour, a requirement if it’s to be called rye bread. Our Rye Bread’s are chemical free, and contain no milk, sugar, fat, additives, or preservatives, yet they still can last up to eight days without freezing. When frozen, our rye breads can last for months. The quality of the ingredients, and recipes handed down through our family and the care and attention our bakers show for the bread making, all add up to a wonderful bread.
Once our rye bread dough has been mixed, divided, and rolled into its shape or placed in its container, it's allowed extra type to rise before baking in the oven.
Our breads share similar characteristics, with a nice chewy crust, and the slightly sweet taste of barley. We use caraway seeds in all our breads, something often associated with a Bavarian style of baking, adding to beautiful rye flavor. Our loaves all show great flavor, texture and depth.
What we often hear from our bread lovers is how richly flavored are breads are, satisfying to eat, with intriguing flavors, a nice crust and a solid bite - they stand alone or made a great addition to any meal.
We use light rye flour (Farmers and Komis Breads), a medium rye flour (Bauernbrot, Old World Rye and Russian Rye) and dark rye flour (Dark Rye Bread)
