About Britt's Organic Bakery and Patisserie
Britt's are artisan pastry-style bakers producing certified organic products that are yeast free, dairy free, gluten free, chemical and gm free. They pride themselves in making nutritious, flavoursome, preservative-free organic products breads and pastries.
Britt's uses a very particular levain (starter culture) which has been actively used in our breads for over 10 years, giving it a unique yet incredibly tasty profile. A longer fermentation of process of 11-18 hours ensures a more developed culture, which in turns allows for fantastic taste.
Our organic breads are leavened with sourdough culture which makes the bread easier to digest. This process produces a diverse mix of wild organisms, predominately lacto-bacteria and wild yeasts. The effects of these wild organisms in the sourdough culture is very different from that of normal yeast, as they are part of a miniature ecosystem. The difference between normal yeast and the wild yeast within a sourdough culture is similar to the difference between refined white sugar and the complex sugar within an apple.
