#RealBreadWeek separating the wheat from the chaff

13 of the best loaves for #RealBreadWeek

A whopping 99% of us buy bread regularly – that’s the equivalent of nearly 12 million loaves sold each day, but what’s in the bread you buy?

#RealBreadWeek celebrates bread that’s made without the use of processing aids or artificial additives, so whether you fancy some roasted rye bread or a simple sourdough loaf, we’ve rounded up a baker’s dozen different ways to get your hands on a slice of real organic bread.
