Your daily bread just got a little healthier, thanks to Stonemill Bakehouse. The family-owned operation recently launched two new breads. Yes, they're packed with Ontario-grown grains, but that's not all that sets these loaves apart. Stonemill worked with dieticians, nutritionists and food scientists to incorporate health-enhancing nutraceuticals - a first for this sector. Several Stonemill breads have a low glycemic index, making them a great choice for people with diabetes. Meanwhile, the "Heart Health" loaf contains omega-3-rich flax seeds for cardiovascular health. The frozen loaves are wrapped in groundbreaking laminated packaging that controls moisture during thawing, extending the bread's shelf life. Through innovations like these, Stonemill is aiming to double its exports over the next five years and keep health-conscious consumers happy.
