Hearth Breads  is changing its flour profile, moving to larger percentages of organic stoneground flours which are more nutrient dense, retaining greater quantities of bran and wheat germ.

All the breads are made using biodynamic or organic flours, seeds, and grains. The water  (springwater) is sourced in the Adelaide Hills and is also used in all forms of cooking. The salt is Himalayan. Our starter is made  using a combination of wheat flours and water.

The bakers are keenly aware of the value of fresh milled flour (which is fresh milled onsite). To this end, a proportion forms part of the composition of every dough except the cinnamon scrolls. In particular, the Rugbrød comprises 90% fresh milled grain, the Light Rye approximately 60%, the 100% approximately 50-60%.  Additionally, any seeds used have been soaked overnight to enhance their nutritional value.
