Why Use Buckwheat flour
The Twilight Baker used organic buckwheat flour because, despite its name, it’s not related to wheat, however, buckwheat is naturally gluten-free. Buckwheat also has a high mineral and antioxidant content. Buckwheats benefits include improved blood sugar control thanks to its low to medium glycemic index (GI).
Most commercially produced flours contain chemicals and additives which aren’t healthy for us, therefore all of The Twilight Baker’s products are made with organically sourced flour from eatwholefoods. The grains in these flours have been grown without weedkillers like glyphosate, which can be harmful to soil and crop health. As a result, organic crops are healthier for us and for our environment.
Why Free-range Eggs
The Twilight Baker uses free-range eggs because as well as allowing our feathery friends to enjoy some sunshine, the eggs contain higher amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, and beta carotene than intensely farmed eggs. These added nutrients protect the brain and support the health of our bones.
At The Twilight Bakery, they add no preservatives or additives to any of their products because, put simply, quality fresh produce doesn’t need it. This is food in its truest form.
Made in a 17cm square tin.
