Traditional bread or German origin. It’s oldest reference dates from the year 1450! It has a black characteristic colour, obtained by a slow high heat cooking process.
A Bakery That Embraces Tradition
This traditional German food has a rich history and is one that we embrace by using an authentic bread recipe and fresh ingredients. By forgoing many shortcuts that come with modern breadmaking, we can create a product that is both true to its roots and tastes amazing. We use a slow fermentation process that can last up to 18 hours to ensure the best quality in our artisan bread. We even mill our own grains on site every day to provide our customers with the freshest taste possible.

We never use any out of place ingredients or preservatives, so you always get a natural and delicious loaf of bread.
The Benefits of Pumpernickel Bread
Although many of us don’t need an excuse to dig into a fresh loaf of bread, you will be pleased to know that there are a number of nutritional benefits to pumpernickel. Our commitment to using quality local ingredients, as well as an authentic recipe, results in a beautiful bread that could aid you in multiple ways. Let’s explore a few:
Pumpernickel Bread Aids Digestion
Studies have shown that pumpernickel contains four to eight times as much resistant starch when compared to bread made of wheat or barley. This results in a slower digestive process that can benefit your blood sugar.
Low Glycemic Load
A glycemic load (GL) is the measurement of the levels of carbohydrates in food in relation to how they affect blood glucose levels. Our traditional pumpernickel is a rye bread fermented with a sourdough starter. This results in a lower GL value than typical white or whole wheat bread. You can indulge without worrying about spikes in your blood glucose or insulin levels.
Can Help Fight Disease
Like other rye bread, pumpernickel is abundant in lignans. These are fiber-related compounds found naturally in many plants and can play a role in protecting the body against cancer and other diseases.
Weaker Gluten Levels
Pumpernickel and other rye bread are a great option if you are conscious of the amount of gluten you consume. When compared to other bread with higher gluten levels, such as white or wheat flour, rye creates a denser product with lower gluten levels. This means you can enjoy our delicious artisanal bread without loading up on gluten.
