Culina Bakery is a small bakery which has been hand crafting a range of organic loaves since 1991.
We are committed to producing healthy organic bread with as few additives as possible.
Recently we have been hearing more about the gut biome, the vast ecosystem of bacteria which inhabit our digestive systems.
Discovered in the 1980’s, resistant starch (a prebiotic dietary fibre) is resistant to digestion in the small intestine & passes intact into the large intestine where it is fermented by bacteria into short chain fatty acids of which butyrate is probably the best known.
Resistant starch is a food/fuel source for our good gut bacteria & has been associated with the improvement of many conditions as diverse as mental health, glycemic control & colon health. More research will no doubt confirm the beneficial attributes of resistant starch.
Many Western diets are low in resistant starch and while we are not claiming to have a product which will cure any number of illnesses & conditions, the addition of Culina Bakery’s Biome Boost Spelt Bread to a healthy diet will help to boost the daily intake of resistant starch in an easy, natural & convenient way.
