New to the Manna Organics family of healthy and delicious organic breads are 3 hearty Bavarian Sourdough Breads! Not for the faint of heart (no white bread lovers here!), these artisanal breads are bold in flavor and made with whole grain organic rye flour. Certified USDA Organic, the three Bavarian Sourdough Breads now being offered are the Manna Organics Whole Rye Sourdough, Manna Organics Multigrain Flax Sourdough, and Manna Organics Sunny Sourdough. “Mom’s” favorite is the Sunny Sourdough, which is made with organic sprouted whole sunflower seeds & organic rolled oats , and is simply divine.

Handcrafted with care, these new breads are extremely tasty and can be enjoyed alone or in a variety of ways.

Suggestions from the Manna Organics team to enjoy their Bavarian Sourdough Breads:

  • Toast them.
  • Top them with fresh butter, cottage cheese, nut butters, or homemade jam.
  • Enjoy a toasted and buttered slice with soup, such as Curried Butternut Squash Soup or Tomato Basil. Perfect for dunking!
  • Make a hearty sandwich. Use your favorite sandwich recipe and substitute our organic sourdough bread with your usual fare.

Try these toppings:

Manna Organics Whole Rye Sourdough: Spread a little stone ground mustard, add a lettuce leaf, then a slice of swiss cheese (sub for Vgan: a meat free deli slice like tofurky), dust with paprika powder. Wunderbar!

Manna Organics Multigrain Flax Sourdough: Spread cream cheese on toasted bread and add fresh sliced red or yellow bell pepper, or fresh cucumber, top with a dash of fresh ground pepper – hearty and healthy!

Manna Organics Sunny Sourdough: The slightly nutty and rich flavor of this sourdough variety makes amazing grilled cheese sandwiches, which are quick-to-prepare.

Vegan versions: Use hummus instead of cream cheese or cheese. Soy cheeses and fried tofu/tempeh as a topping is simply amazing.

Manna Bread is available nationwide at Whole Foods Market, natural food retail stores and online at www.mannaorganicbakery.com.
