Beyond Bread: Baking with Diversity for Taste and Gut Health


At Miche Artisan Bakery, we believe the best bread transcends mere sustenance. It nourishes the body and tantalizes the taste buds. We achieve this by embracing the power of diversity – diversity in grains, botanicals, and even the fascinating world of fermentation. Let’s dive into how our unique approach to baking benefits both your flavor experiences and your overall wellbeing.

Diversity: The Spice of Bread (and Life)

You’ve heard that variety is the spice of life, but have you considered its importance in your bread basket? Modern diets often rely heavily on a few common grain types. Yet, venturing beyond the familiar opens a world of delicious possibilities and potential health benefits.

  • Unique Flavors and Textures: Ancient grains, lesser-known millets, unexpected additions like lentils and spices create a delightful symphony of flavors in each bite.
  • Nutritional Powerhouses: Diverse grains offer a wider spectrum of vitamins, minerals, and beneficial compounds like polyphenols.
  • Gut Health Champions: The variety found in whole grains nourishes your gut microbiome, the community of microorganisms in your digestive system that plays a vital role in overall health.

The Magic of Fermentation

Our bakery goes a delicious step further by incorporating the art of fermentation. This age-old process not only enhances bread’s flavor and texture but offers additional gut-health benefits:

  • Probiotic Power: Fermented foods naturally contain beneficial bacteria, or probiotics, that help balance your gut microbiome.
  • Improved Digestion: Fermentation helps break down certain components in grains, potentially making them easier to digest.
  • The Gut-Brain Connection: Emerging research suggests a healthy gut microbiome may positively influence mood and cognitive function through the gut-brain axis.

Miche Artisan Bakery: Celebrating Diversity in Every Bite

From our signature loaves infused with ancient grains to our fermented crackers and cookies bursting with botanicals, we make embracing diversity delicious. Here’s a taste of what you’ll find:

  • Ancient Grain Loaves: Experience the nutty richness of an heirloom wheat variety or the subtle sweetness of millet.
  • Fermented Crackers and Cookies: Treat yourself to the unique tang of fermentation with ingredients like cocoa nibs, beans, or seasonal additions like rosehips.
  • Superfood Surprises: Discover the subtle flavors and added nutritional benefits of flaxseeds, saffron, and other wholesome ingredients tucked into our creations.
