New Product Review: The Baker Organic Whole Wheat Bread -- Agave-Sweetened Sandwich Bread
Posted Jan 27 2009 6:23pm
Oh happy day! I'm so pleased to tell you how great it is to be able to buy bread in a store! When I found this 100% whole wheat bread in the back of the George Street Coop one morning when I was volunteering there, I told everyone on the shift (because they know of my baking with agave bent and have benefitted from the results).
Usually bread is sweetened with some type of sugar like evaporated cane juice or honey. Not so with this very tasty bread from The Baker Organic. While the 100% whole wheat variety uses agave nectar (and a little barley malt), the 7 grain and fiber as well as the spelt selections add molasses, so be on the lookout for that.
Other agave-sweetened varieties include green tea and gogi berry, and pomegranate and blueberry (next on my list to try) .
The 100% whole wheat is full of wheat flavor, and you can pick up some oaty flavors as well. It toasts great, and makes an excellent peanut butter and apricot spread sandwich. The bread is moist, and not at all dense like most whole wheat bricks. Generally speaking, it's great stuff.
Even though the web site says they only sell to the west coast, I bought this in NJ, so you might just find it near you, too.
