Our family has been creating healthy, traditional bread with tremendous passion, following traditional methods of baking, using only the finest ingredients for almost 40 years, and we make sure our customers get the very best options.
Every day, we bake a wide range of fresh bread at our Santa Eulalia bakery, including German, artisan, wholegrain, spelt, nut variety ranges, and much more! The Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Formentera, and Mallorca) count us as one of the most sought-after bread suppliers for catering companies, restaurants, and local grocery shopping. And, we quite simply love what we do!
So, is ‘bread’ actually healthy for you?
The question of eating wheat (and one we get to answer quite often) has become increasingly controversial in recent years. Due to the gluten it contains, it’s been linked to wheat allergies, celiac disease, and more. Luckily, wheat allergies don’t affect everyone and this is where wheat/bread is very much misunderstood and underappreciated for its many health benefits.
Although white bread gets a bad rap, wholemeal bread is super healthy for us! It makes us fuller faster thanks to the many dietary fibres, filling the stomach without providing too many calories, and can often have a low glycemic index too. What’s more dietary fibre can prevent type 2 diabetes, lipid metabolism disorders, colon cancer, and even cardiovascular disease.
A delightful portion of bread can not only complete a meal but will fuel the body with essential components to suit a healthy and balanced lifestyle. In fact, a 3.5 ounce serving of unenriched whole wheat flour contains:
- 15 grams of protein
- 10.6 grams of dietary fiber
- 71.2 grams of carbohydrates
- 38 milligrams of calcium
- 136 milligrams of magnesium
- 352 milligrams of phosphorus
- 376 milligrams of potassium
- 39 micrograms of folate
- 5.5 milligrams of niacin
- 0.5 milligrams of thiamine
It’s hard to pick the right loaf of bread for everyone, but if you want to keep a close eye on the waistline (especially after the Christmas season) while still getting those all-important nutritional values into your body for optimal health and vitality, and you require a loaf that is easily digested, then why not check out our two favored whole-grain varieties at Samos Deli!
Vegan Bread at Samos Deli, Ibiza
With its yeast-free, wholegrain properties, and exceptional taste, our Vegan Bread and Vegan Barrita slices are an absolute delight. With valuable ingredients like pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and linseeds, this textured bread alternative will appeal not only to vegans but also to all wholegrain fans.
Wholegrain Bread at Samos Deli, Ibiza
Our wholegrain bread range is made with wholegrain flour and shredded cereals, containing a rich outer layer of wheat seed which is therefore high in dietary fibre (7%). Its nutty, grainy bite, excellent flavor, and long-lasting freshness (up to 6 weeks) make our wholegrain bread quite distinguished.
If you are looking for fresh, local bread with fewer calories that are loaded with health benefits, then these two options would be the best choice on the bakery bread rack. Baked without any preservatives, completely free of E-numbers, our bread can be enjoyed without a guilty conscience.
If you’re looking for our organic or healthy bread varieties, then why not head down to our Santa Eulàlia store, or alternatively you can find us at Fruterias La Choza (Santa Gertrudis and Santa Eulalia), all Hiper Centros, Aprops, Sumas, Spars, Proxims and Eroski, where you will be inspired by the true art and taste of baking!
With Love Your Samos Deli Team, Santa Eulalia, Ibiza.
