In our opinion, the only grain-based bread you should eat is organic fermented sourdough. And Bread Srsly is in a class of its own. It’s Celiac certified to be gluten free from beginning to end. It’s made with wild yeasts and organic gluten-free grains, and given a proper 12 hour rising process to allow the wild yeasts to start digesting the grains. Bread Srsly works all this magic without any added sugar, commercial yeast, or all of the top food allergens like dairy, nuts, eggs, soy, corn, nightshades, and legumes. At only 22g of Net Carbs per slice, and 110 calories, this artisanal sourdough is breaking through all barriers, and resulting in a classic sourdough taste that impresses even gluten-eaters too. Here’s why it’s important to legitimately ferment the dough, and use wild yeasts like Bread Srsly does: During the fermentation process, the wild yeasts feast on the natural sugars in the grains, digesting them for us, and releasing all of the nutrients that are locked up inside the seed. This also neutralizes the toxins—known as phytates, lectins and enzyme inhibitors—so that in the end you have a traditional, nutritious, enzyme-rich, digestible food.

Hi-Vibe uses organic, grass-fed, undenatured whey protein isolate. We chose whey ‘isolate’ (vs concentrate) because this increases the likelihood that someone can enjoy this food even if they have a dairy sensitivity. Ours is undenatured and exceptional because it is cold-processed from Raw (unpasteurized) milk, and only pasteurized once (for 15 seconds) when packaging (all others are pasteurized twice). Whey is a highly bioavailable protein source that feeds gut bacteria (prebiotic) and increases immunity. Also known to boost our body’s glutathione antioxidant, and studied for heart health, anti-inflammatory properties and osteoporosis prevention.
