Pumpernickel Bread is Gut Friendly
Pumpernickel is a traditional German bread with a heavy texture and distinctive flavour. Made from wholegrain rye flour, pumpernickel is packed with stress busting B vitamins, plant compounds called lignans, as well as fibre. Traditionally made from a sourdough starter and a coarse wholegrain rye flour, pumpernickel is rich in resistant starch which supports gut health and lowers the bread’s glycaemic index. Check labels, because many commercial varieties include wheat flour, molasses and yeast.
