I'm always on the lookout for breads that my mom and dad can eat with their respective intolerances to fruit and potato. There are almost none, especially since they additionally don't want to eat wheat anymore. The gluten in wheat can be hard to digest, even for those without intolerances to it.


If you can tolerate wheat, the brand Silver Hills Sprouted bread has options that don't have fruit or potato, like their Little Big Bread. But, it's sweetened with cane sugar and made with wheat flour, and is really just a commercially processed food. Not the best.

With my parents and all of you in mind, I was excited when I learned about Pacha Bread! Their bread is made from sprouted, fermented buckwheat, making it easily digestible. Contrary to its name, buckwheat is not a type of wheat and is actually related to rhubarb. Since the ingredients in Pacha's Original Sourdough are just buckwheat and sea salt, it seemed as though it should be good for everyone!


They're also a good company, using sustainable and regenerative practices, like compostable packaging and regenerative agriculatural practices.

 

 I bought some and gave it to my dad (Dr. Zeff), asking him to test it. He did, and found that unfortunately it does have fruit (darn it!), but doesn't have potato. I'd hoped to have found bread for my mom, and will continue looking for fruit free bread. Still, I'm pleased to share that this bread has:

  • No potato

  • No egg

  • No wheat

  • No gluten

  • No dairy 

  • No sugar

  • No meat or mined salt


Just about everyone (except for fruit intolerant people) should be able to have it. Full disclosure: it is a teensy bit odd. It's rather flat (about 2" high), and has that sourdough tang. If you're used to eating regular bread, you might be disappointed at first. HOWEVER, if you're one of the many people who have been avoiding bread for a while, or having to make your own, this will be a pleasant treat. Personally, I like it and Dr. Zeff found it to be delicious as well!


A second caveat is that so far we've only tested the Original Sourdough, and don't yet know if the other flavors are also potato-free. The Cheesy Herb, for example, uses nutritional yeast for its cheese flavor. Depending on how that yeast is cultivated, it could cause the bread to test positive for potato.


I will continue my search for fruit free bread. In the meantime, if you'd like to buy this excellent bread, I have a gift from Pacha that I can pass on to you!
