I first came across Everfresh in a local health food shop in Pangbourne. I was on the hunt for carrot cake and their colourful packaging caught my eye. Everfresh wasn’t a brand that i’d heard of before but after i’d demolished their carrot cake within a weekend, I knew that I had to try more.
Everfresh produce both cakes and breads, which are baked without preservatives, dairy, eggs, sweeteners or refined sugars. They’re perfect for those with intolerances, allergies and of course, us vegans. In total they have fifteen different types of bread and seven cakes. Their breads sit in four categories:
- Sprouted Wheat Bread
- Sprouted Rye Bread
- Sprouted Spelt Bread
- Gluten Free Bread
And within those categories you’ll find a range of options including raisin bread, date bread, mixed seed bread and more. They’re completely different to what you usually find in the supermarket. So here are three reasons why you should give Everfresh products a go.
3 reasons to try Everfresh
They’re the only UK company making bread from 100% sprouted whole grains
That’s right, sprouted whole grains. You’ll notice that their breads have a slight sweet flavour because of the natural sprouting process. Don’t be fooled, there’s no added sugar in there.
Where you will find the addition of sweetener is in the cakes where they add organic apple juice concentrate to provide the sweetness.
I found that the bread was much easier to digest and didn’t leave me feeling bloated. Perhaps this is something to do with the fact that it is sprouted.
You’re supporting a brand that cares about the environment
They source the best quality organic ingredients for their products and keep processing to a minimum. They’re part of the Organic Food Federation who keep them compliant to current organic requirements, so you can rest assured that the products that you buy are truly organic. Why do they go to this effort? To protect and preserve the environment for our future generations, as we all should.
Everfresh products are made in the UK
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while then you’ll know that i like to support UK brands and Everfresh is no exception. Everfresh is located in Buckinghamshire and has been producing sprouted breads and cakes since 1990, that’s over 25 years!
As a bit of a bread addict and a cake addict too i’ve been enjoying trying Everfresh’s products. Amongst the cakes the carrot remains my favourite. It’s the perfect guilt free treat with a cup of tea. Us Brits do love our tea! I’ve also enjoyed the fruit and almond sprouted wheat bread which i’ve been having for breakfast topped with some jam. The bread is nice and sweet as it is…but as i have a sweet tooth, a lashing of jam took it to the next level.
An extra bonus is that unopened, the breads will keep in your store cupboard for up to 10 months, so they’re a great staple to keep handy.
