Pain de Campagne Exposed – Nothing to Hide

has nothing to hide

At Dunbar Community Bakery, our bread is made from  natural ingredients; just flour, water, salt and a touch of yeast that makes a simple loaf.

has no unwanted additives to give the bread longer shelf life, no flour improvers or chemical leaveners with unpronounceable names

At Dunbar Community Bakery, we don’t believe in using anything that is hard to pronounce. Our bread doesn’t need E220 (potassium sorbate), E260 (acetic acid), E282 (calcium propionate), E300 (ascorbic acid), E481 (sodium stearoyl-2-lactylate), E472e (mono- and diacetyl tartaric acid esters of mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids), E920 (l-cysteine), soya flour, vegetable fat and dextrose. These are just a few of the other things that you might find in a supermarket loaf. There are other ingredients that aren’t even declared on the packaging!

contains natural ingredients

At Dunbar Community Bakery, we add other ingredients to produce different loaves – nuts, seeds, dried fruits; all natural, all good for you.

is made from a living organism

At Dunbar Community Bakery, we use a sourdough starter that is made from flour and water. Over several days, this sloppy paste starts to ferment with the help of naturally occurring yeasts. We use this starter in all our  sourdough breads and is what gives our loaves their distinctive taste.

is full of flavour

At Dunbar Community Bakery, our sourdough starter not only gives our breads a fantastic taste, its texture is open with a crispy crust. We don’t believe in a flabby crust, tight textured bread with little flavour.

is good for you

At Dunbar Community Bakery, we take our time. Our breads are slowly risen, letting the yeasts work their magic; making it easier to digest, keeping you fuller for longer and reduces bloating. We use less salt but not to the detriment of flavour.
