Bread is the staff of life, as the saying goes.
Bread is so basic a food that it functions as a metaphor for material comfort, even wealth. Americans who work to support their families are “breadwinners.” The American who wants to get ahead in the world will strive to “know which side his bread is buttered on.” Bread is as basic as you can get in the realm of food.
Pita bread is a great choice for those who are looking to eat a healthier diet and includes lots of iron, protein, and B-vitamins, as well as complex carbohydrates that will help give you the energy to get you through your day. Our bread is baked daily in a brick oven and is made with only the finest ingredients – stone-ground flour, yeast, water and salt.
Our whole wheat version of the versatile pita bread, also known as pita pockets, can be served filled as sandwiches or toasted and brushed with garlic butter to serve with soups. Use them as a quick and easy pizza base – top with pizza sauce, cheese and topping(s) of your choice and grill until the cheese melts.
One of our favorite ways of eating pita bread is also the simplest – warm the pita in the oven, dip in olive oil and grind rock salt on top.
Whatever way you prefer to eat it, whole wheat pita bread is high in fiber and helps reduce the risk of heart disease.
