I have joked in the past that the only reason I won’t ever go gluten-free is because I love bread far too much. One of my most favourite ways to enjoy a slice of bread is to toast it and then while it’s still hot slather on a generous helping of butter. I know too much bread isn’t a good idea so I try to keep it to one or two slices at most and I always use a bread that is filled with as many nutrients and fibre as possible.
Stomemill Bakehouse has a line of breads that is exactly that. They are made with whole grains and/or sprouted grains and with 100% natural ingredients using no preservatives and additives. Their new line of wellness breads are:
- low in fat and sodium

Did you know?
- Stonemill is first in Ontario & English Canada to introduce vitamin D in their line of wellbeing packaged, sliced breads
- These breads have 25% of daily value (%DV) of vitamin D per serving (2 slices), which is considered an excellent source of vitamin .
- This is almost as much vitamin D as what’s found in one cup (250 mL) of milk. And, it’s more vitamin D than what’s found in egg yolks, fortified orange juice or soy beverages.
Stonemill believes in the “3 P’s” philosophy: people, planet, prosperity. People help them succeed, from the bakers to the shoppers, so they make sure to treat everyone with respect, dignity and kindness. The planet is our home and what provides us with everything we need to live. They strive to minimize their impact on the earth and sponsor initiatives that create sustainability here at home as well as in the third world. Prosperity is what they are paying forward to those that help them find success. They do this by providing team members with rewarding careers, support organic and alternative farming and products, or initiate and follow through with innovative business practices.
I love bread that is more than empty filler and love that Stonemill Bakehouse is passionate about corporate social responsibility. I will be keeping my eyes open for this bread should it ever make its way West.
Stonemill bread is primarily available in Ontario. They have limited distribution in Quebec and Atlantic Canada. If you have trouble finding the bread in your area, please reach out to Stonemill via their Facebook page and they’ll let you know if there’s a store in your area that carries their product.
