Flavor Profile

The complex and diverse grain mix provides incredible texture and flavors that are complemented perfectly with ancient grain notes and subtle acid from the whole milled wheat starter. This loaf has another level of flavor and texture from the toasted sesame seed topping. It is such a unique experience; we haven’t experienced these grains, in this way, before.
