Actual whole meal and actual sourdough!
The ONLY sourdough on the market that is %100 whole meal, and not a mix of white and whole meal flours, or grains and white four, or spelt. Sugar free, soft and wholemeal. Not cheap but definitely worth the extra.
Purchased at Coles for $6.99.
I get the wholemeal regularly now. it is thoroughly baked, )meaning not soggy and half baked like some of the other organic bread)s . So, and also because it has no additives or preservatives, it will get dry before its use by date as does any home made bread after a day or two. I too had the same problem mentioned below once. But I did not know I was buying old bread. From overhearing a conversation from another company bread rep who was pulling all his old bread off the shelves , I realised the supermarket was putting fresh bread behind the ...old bread, and not removing the old bread. I worked out how to make sure I was buying the fresh bread. I contacted "bill" who advised me when he delivers to my local shop, I go in late that day, I am getting fresh bread baked the day before, I freeze it and it is great. His bread has a use by date of plus 6days, delivered the day after baking. so I avoid the old bread on the shelf, and get the bread that still has 5 or close days left. I also had tried a lot of other organic breads and am glad to be back with bill's bread... I feel sorry for the people who pick up the old bread and dont know that it is not the fresh bread.
Bill's organic bread
1. The bread is never delivered fresh to the supermarket - if your lucky, only 3 days the before use-by date
2. The top quarter of the bread always breaks off, so you only get 3/4 of a slice of a bread that costs $6 for a loaf.
Clear labelling ! It's all on the pack. Awesome quality product
It's what's not on a label that makes me concerned. Bills have all the information on the pack from organic certification to exactly what's in it. It's about time all food is clearly labelled like Bills. Great product !
Everything else is rubbish once you've had this a few times
Takes a little get used to for anyone who's adapted to the rubbish on the supermarket shelves. Once you do, there's no going back.
I minimise grain intake for health but I treasure spelt sourdough in moderation and Bills is by far the BEST. Around $7 per loaf seems expensive initially to you've eaten it for a while and then tried a piece of rubbish wheat bread, then you'll realise it's a bargain.
Please Bills Bread, don't sell out to the majors who'll destroy your product. Become like Coopers brewery and keep it in the family. Australians...will drive increased product sales over the decades ahead. Even consider setting up distribution of a licensed product in the USA as it's near impossible to find a good spelt sourdough even in whole foods there. Your product has endless potential if the majors are kept away from your good work!!!
Awesome..The Best Bread
This is the way bread should be....there are no nasties....easily digestible..littlies to elderly...makes the best toast...freezes well...I keep at least 3 or 4 different loaves at a time...including the fruit bread...not just raisin toast...spectacular fruit bread....
The grandson took over in 2015...rebranded...better packaging....I just do not have a bad word to say about this bread....Try any of Bills Breads....you will never go back to ordinary commercial bread........
Alot of what is available today seems to be quick cheap ''chemical' bread.. i found Bill's (by mistake) is the closest thing to naturally made bread thats available on a supermarket shelf. You can tell when you pick it up its heavy not full of air. Sure you pay a little bit more but Nutritionally'' i find 1 slice of this toasted (with avo) equates to about 3 pieces of cheaper white (highly processed) bread and sustains you longer during the day as its packed with (organic) vitamins and minerals. A Lot of effort and thought has gone into these ingredients and you can get a few varieties now including raisin toast - just read the packet!
Bill's Organic CSCourdough Wholemeal
I enjoy this bread as I can not tolerate highly processed commercial bread.
It tastes fantastic toasted with avocado and egg. Its a heavier bread so I know I am eating the real deal, and keeps me full for longer.
Something to chew on and Yeast free
Our favourite is Bill's wholemeal, we cut it into doorstep thickness. Makes very good toast that doesn't collapse, with coconut oil as the "spread" instead of butter. Under poached eggs, a light sprinkling of black/pink salt on the toast is just yum.
Our grandson (7) comes to our place on Thursdays after school, starving. We fill him up with Bill's Fruit loaf, buttered. Just wish the wholemeal loaf was square for sandwiches.
Best bread ever
I have trouble tolerating bread, Bill's is the only bread I can eat but and it just so happens the the sourdough spelt is the best bread I have ever tasted. I like to eat it toasted with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of Thyme, this is real deal sourdough bread that has been properly fermented and is extremely easy for the body to digest. Sometimes when I buy it at the supermarket the packaging is slightly torn due to night fill staff jamming it into the shelves, not really the companies fault but it does warrant an improvement in the packaging.
organic, stoneground, fully hydrolised, kosher
packaging could use improvement
