Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery, which specializes in plant-based bakery products made with sprouted whole grains, announces a brand refresh that includes a full product packaging redesign as well as a refreshed product portfolio, including the introduction of a hearty, Omega-3 ALA rich loaf, Omegamazing, coming to shelves later this year.

The reimagined packaging, which will debut this month at Natural Products Expo West, was inspired by the brand's longtime mission to inspire healthier living through healthier choices. The new design features Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery's beloved bold and bright colors while shining the spotlight on its signature ingredient: sprouted whole grains. Featured on each package of Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery's breads, bagels, and buns is an eye-catching clear window, which allows consumers to easily see the color, texture, and the wholesome grains in every product.

The new packaging allows consumers to easily spot the outstanding nutritional values for the nutrients they care about most – fiber, protein, and whole grains – and on which Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery breads are uniquely positioned to deliver. Packaging also includes labels for Non-GMO Project Verified, USDA Organic Ingredients, Certified Glyphosate Free, Certified Vegan, Kosher, and Peanut & Nut Free, all clearly featured on the new packaging.

"For more than three decades we have been dedicated to offering healthier, nutrient-rich, sprouted breads. Today we are thrilled to introduce Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery's new look, which better communicates our continued commitment to sprouted whole grains and the excellent nutritional benefits they offer, and importantly, also makes it easier for consumers to make healthier choices in the aisle," said Stan Smith, founder and president of Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery.

The updated line of sprouted whole grain bread products, which includes organic and made from organic ingredients breads, bagels, and buns, has been reformulated to offer the highest quality product possible. The reformulations include enhancements to the sprouting and preparation techniques of grains for improved consistency, taste and softness. Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery's signature bread offerings including Squirrelly, The Big 16, and Little Big Bread will now boast improved formulas made with whole grains that are sprouted and mashed to create the dough then baked into a delicious and healthier bread.

Established in 1989, Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery grew out of the Silver Hills Guest House, where one of the company's founders began baking bread from sprouted whole grains. Starting with Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery, the company continued on to establish an additional brand, Little Northern Bakehouse, and two sister brands, One Degree Organic Foods, and Carbonaut, to align with a variety of healthy dietary choices. Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery's goal is to produce wholesome vegan, non-GMO products to inspire healthier living through healthier choices. 

The company operates a large GFSI-certified sprouted bakery facility based in Abbotsford, BC, Canada.

Organic snack bars

Dave’s Killer Bread®, known for shaking up the bread category with its signature whole grain loaves, breakfast breads, English muffins, bagels, and buns, is about to crush a new category with their latest offering: Organic Snack Bars. These delicious bars are indulgent enough to satisfy any sweet tooth, yet are still power-packed with quality ingredients to fuel your day, the Dave’s way.  

“To say our BreadHeads want more innovation from DKB is an understatement, and we heard them loud and clear! It’s no secret that consumers want healthy snacks that also taste killer. And at DKB, we were up to the task. It was so fun to bring our organic whole grain nutrition know-how and skyhigh flavor standards to the snack category,” said Jillian Cohn, associate brand manager at Dave’s Killer Bread. “Our BreadHeads are going to love these bars. They’re baked, soft, like real food, and loaded with whole grains, seeds, nuts, and chocolate. It’s hard to pick a favorite!”

The snack bars come in three delicious flavors:  

Cocoa Brownie Blitz™ is packed with organic chocolate chunks and our signature mix of seeds, serving up 16g whole grains and 6g fiber. Busy parents tired of battling their kids over snack choices can tuck this into their backpacks guilt-free…and might even get a “Thanks! ILY!” in return.

Trail Mix Crumble delivers all the flavor of the classic energy boosting fuel of organic chocolate chunks, fruits, and seeds while packing 19g whole grains and 5g fiber. Whether taking on the trail or crushing that conference call with the video off, trail mix is always a good idea.

Oat-rageous Honey Almond™ packs a whopping 22g whole grains and 5g fiber with simple ingredients like organic rolled oats, organic honey, and organic dry roasted almonds. This golden baked bar provides a satisfying bite to curb any craving.

“We did a soft roll-out of the Organic Snack Bars last year with select retailers and couldn’t believe the positive response. We are excited to bring these to more BreadHeads as our national launch continues,” said Cohn.  

Like all Dave’s Killer Bread nationally available offerings, Organic Snack Bars are Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, and contain no artificial ingredients, artificial preservatives, colors or flavors, and are free of high fructose corn syrup and bleached flour. The 4-bar boxes retail for $5.99, while individual bars retail for $1.99. Dave’s Killer Bread Organic Snack Bars will be available at select grocery outlets nationwide.

Rocking the bread aisle with delicious whole grains comes naturally to Dave’s Killer Bread. First introduced at the Portland Farmers Market in 2005, it is now the nation’s best-selling organic bread brand with widespread distribution across the U.S. and Canada. The flagship organic bread brand for Flowers Foods (NYSE:FLO), Dave’s Killer Bread pioneered the organic seeded bread category and offers 23 varieties of whole grain organic bakery products, all of which are certified USDA organic and Non-GMO Project Verified.
