I'm allergic to sunflower. Can I still safely enjoy your products?

There is cross-contact of sunflower and poppy seeds from our Seeded Sourdough with our other products, as we use shared equipment. If you are allergic to sunflower in any form, or poppy seeds, we recommend not consuming our products.

Some of your products contain xanthan gum. What is the xanthan gum you use derived from?

As of 2021, the xanthan gum we use is derived from corn. While there aren’t corn proteins in the final product, some people with corn sensitivities choose to avoid our products made with xanthan gum. Read more about xanthan gum here.

Do you have any products made without gums or rice?

Yes! Our Sandwich Rolls and our Cinnamon Raisin Sourdough do not contain any gums or rice.

What's the deal with xanthan gum versus psyllium husk?

We started our company with our sourdough loaf recipe, and it put us on the map. But while we love our loaf, we began to hear that some people couldn't tolerate xanthan gum. Read more about xanthan gum here. We began to experiment with organic psyllium husk, and came up with our delicious Sandwich Rolls for folks looking to avoid gums. Our newest sourdough loaf flavor, Cinnamon Raisin, is also gum free.

We'll be adding more gum-free products in the future!

What is wild yeast?

Wild yeast is an amazing thing. It is a collection of several (or maybe hundreds?) of strains of yeast (the dusty-looking coating on apples and grapes is wild yeast, but it lives all over the place), along with local good bacteria. Bakers yeast is a single strain of yeast isolated from the wild yeast bunch, and selected for speed, flavor and consistency. Baker's yeast alone does not have the benefits of the wild yeast culture, which acts to break down the protein and sugar structure of grains, and unlocks their nutrients. I don't know all the technical details about why folks are more sensitive to single-strain yeasts, but I think it is because to make bread more quickly (i.e. cheaply) you need to use a pretty high quantity of yeast and often sugar, so you have too much yeast breaking down the sugar but never breaking down the grains. Learn more on the blog.

Does your rice contain arsenic?

We use organic white rice flour, which is rumored to have less arsenic than a brown rice flour. However, like xanthan gum, we know some people are looking to avoid rice all together. Our gum-free Sandwich Rolls and Cinnamon Raisin Sourdough are also rice-free, and will stay that way. Please note that they are made at the same time as our rice-containing loaves, so there will be some cross-contact.

What type of salt is used in your products?

We use kosher salt in all of our products.

Why is the Cinnamon Raisin Gluten-Free Sourdough Loaf loaf dark in color?

This darker color is caused by the caramelization of sugars that occurs within the loaf during the baking process. On top of this, date syrup is a naturally dark ingredient, which also contributes to a darker loaf color. This color difference is similar to how gingerbread cookies made with molasses come out of the oven darker than sugar cookies.

What kind of cinnamon is used in the Cinnamon Raisin Gluten-Free Sourdough Loaf?

The cinnamon in our Cinnamon Raisin loaf is cassia (or Saigon) cinnamon.

How sweet is the Cinnamon Raisin Gluten-Free Sourdough Loaf?

Our Cinnamon Raisin Gluten-Free Sourdough Loaf offers just a touch of sweetness. If you prefer a sweeter taste, we recommend a drizzle of Just Date Syrup, or your sweet toppings of choice.

What is the Cinnamon Raisin Gluten-Free Sourdough Loaf sweetened with?

Our Cinnamon Raisin Gluten-Free Sourdough Loaf is lightly sweetened only with organic California Medjool date syrup from Just Date.

Why do you use date syrup in your Cinnamon Raisin Gluten-Free Sourdough Loaf?

Date syrup is a potassium-rich, nutrient-dense, and low-glycemic index sweetener made only from organic medjool dates.

Do the dates or raisins in the Cinnamon Raisin Gluten-Free Sourdough Loaf contain sulfites?

No, this product is sulfite-free!

CARING FOR YOUR SOURDOUGH

How do I care for my loaf?

Our bread is preservative-free, so we recommend placing your bread - in its original packaging- in the refrigerator as soon as it's received. The bread will last over a week as long as it stays chilled.

Can I freeze the bread?

Yes! Our bread freezes well for at least two months. For best results, we recommend chilling for a few days in the fridge, then slicing it up before you freeze it. Be sure to wrap the bread in freezer-safe packaging.

Any tips for slicing?

Once the bread has been refrigerated, it will be very easy to slice! Use a SHARP non-serrated knife (chef's knife or cleaver if you have one) to slice your bread as thinly as you'd like. The longer the loaf has chilled, the thinner you can slice it.

TROUBLESHOOTING

My loaf has a big air bubble. What's up?

We have an amazing team of people working to bake, pack and deliver only the best gluten-free products. However, sometimes a loaf gets through with a larger-than-normal air bubble hidden sneakily inside. While we've implemented tons of awesome improvements to minimize the bubbles, we are still working with a living sourdough culture with a mind of its own. Our production team is continually improving our baking processes to resolve this quality issue.

If you get one of these lucky loaves, please reach out to hello@breadsrsly.com. We will happily replace the lucky loaf or refund your money. Feel free to try making one of our recipes with the rest of your delicious, yet hard-to-slice loaf.

The loaf is very sticky or seems under-baked. Why is that?

Our bread is extra moist to help it get its rise, and to extend its shelf-life. This results in a wetter crumb, which is safe and fully baked, but can be sticky when the bread is freshest. This is easily solved by refrigerating your bread. The whole loaf will firm up a bit, and the crumb will set perfectly after a few days. Once you toast your bread, that stickiness should turn into delicious melt-in-your-mouth sourdough toast!

I'm not satisfied with my order. What do I do?

While we are confident that our product is delicious, we know no bread is for everyone. Please please let us know if you are not satisfied for ANY reason. We value our customers above all else, and rely heavily on your feedback to guide our progress. Email hello@breadsrsly.com, and we will make it right!
