Why are Wildgrain products healthier?Updated 9 months ago

We know that “healthy” is not typically the word that comes to mind when talking about carbs. But at Wildgrain, we approach making food differently.

We strive to make products that have simple, easy-to-understand ingredient lists. We also provide sub-ingredients in our ingredient lists (which is not required by the FDA) to help people who have more uncommon allergies to sub-ingredients identify whether they can safely enjoy Wildgrain products.

In addition to keep our ingredient lists short and easy-to-understand, we also strive to keep them “clean”. While there is no FDA definition for “clean", our definition of “clean ingredients” includes:

  • Ingredients you can pronounce
  • Ingredients you can find at a grocery store if you were making the item yourself
  • No preservatives
  • No artificial colors or flavors
  • No bleached flour
  • Organic ingredients when possible
  • Local and seasonal ingredients when possible

Beyond being clean replacements for your favorite carbs, our sourdough bread provides many health benefits. Our fermentation process digests the majority of the gluten; for this reason, some people with gluten sensitivities find that they can enjoy Wildgrain sourdough bread. Sourdough bread also contains lactic acid, which helps your body absorb more nutrients (e.g. calcium, magnesium, and iron) than your body would from non-sourdough bread. Lastly, it contains prebiotics, which keep your gut biome healthy and also increase the bioavailability of nutrients.
