Real Bread Week is running from 22nd February until 1st March in 2020 and we have a Bumper Guide of How to Celebrate Real Bread Week with your Family
Real Bread Week is the annual, international celebration of additive-free loaves and the people who make them.
Real Bread Week started in 2010 and its main aims are to encourage and help people to buy real bread from local, independent bakeries as well as bake their own real bread at home
By ditching the additive-laden loaf habit and supporting your local real bread baker you and your family could reap real benefits.
Small, independent, locally owned bakeries help support more jobs for people in your local community. Bakers are a skilled job and it keeps more money circulating in our local economy, helping to keep your high streets alive.
Some also suggest that by keeping our Local baker in business it can provide our communities with some great social benefits, such as providing a place for older people to go to see a friendly face and have a chat and reduce the possibly of them becoming isolated.
Additionally, your local baker can offer training and employment opportunities for people facing many challenges.
Whether at home with the family or at school, nursery or clubs it’s important for children to learn and experience making Real Bread as they can avoid eating unnecessary artificial additives, that are in the industrial loaves of bread in supermarkets, providing them with a heathier food choice.
Also let’s not forget its loads of fun for the kids to make their own bread and might even tempt them to try something new or choose wholemeal over white bread.
Real Bread means it has nothing to hide. It is made with only simple, natural ingredients and has no processing aids or artificial additives.
Additives not used in Real Bread making include things like baking powder and other chemical like ascorbic acid, xanthan gum, added enzymes or any other so-called processing aids.
