4 packs (8 slices total) of all-natural soft French bread with naturally sweet raisins from Japan. No additives, no dairy, and no eggs - hard to believe when you taste how delicious it is. When making bread, it's usual practice to use oil to make it easier to remove the dough from the case or baking sheet, but this bread is made without any extra oil and is instead carefully removed by hand. The natural flavor of wheat comes right through from the first bite as the bread isn't oxidized. Needless to say, it is also a great choice for those with dairy or egg allergies / intolerances.
This additive-free bread is baked with organic raisins that give the bread a natural sweet flavor - even without the aid of additional sugar. The bread is frozen in perfect condition after baking and holds its texture so well after defrosting that you will hardly remember it was frozen in the first place. We recommend defrosting the slices at room temperature (or microwave if needed quickly) for those who like the soft and chewy texture. Also absolutely delicious when toasted for those who like a crunchier texture. This bread is so clean, it's delicious on its own, but works just as well with butter, jam or other ingredients.
✔ Only made of wheat flour from Hokkaido and other natural ingredients.
✔ Additive-free and nothing to hide.
✔ Egg-free and dairy-free.
✔ No use of extra oils to make it easier to remove dough from the case or baking sheet.
✔ Fermented with dry yeast that blends perfectly with the domestic wheat.

Sala Akita Shirakami was founded by Otsuka Setsuko in 1995 and they have been handcrafting all-natural artisan bread using the same recipe since its establishment. It all started with founder Otsuka wanting to bake for a friend whose child had food allergies. The bread made with natural yeast became a huge hit in their neighborhood, so she decided to open a bakery in her yard. Just like when they made their first bread for their friends and family, this bread is made using the same ingredients and passion.
It’s convenient having this bread in the freezer. It has a nice flavour, it’s a bit expensive but worth it if you like to try dairy/egg free bread.
