Helga's Goes Nuts for Super Grains
Helga's transforms white bread and gives rise to grainy goodness!
For a limited time only, Helga's Continental Bakehouse has incorporated the wholesome goodness of original grains into their much loved loaves, with the first ever Spelt & Sunflower Seed, and Golden Linseed & Barley breads on shelf now.
Imaginatively baked, the unique breads are bursting with flavour you'll go nuts for combined with the nutritious properties of original wholegrains and wholesome seeds that are finding renewed popularity in Australian diets.
Helga's has combined 'super grains' spelt and barley, which are superior sources of anti-oxidants and essential nutrients, with wholesome sunflower seeds and rare golden linseeds that transform white bread and pack a natural, nutty flavour punch.
Wholefoods and wholesome seeds:
Spelt (otherwise known as Triticum spelta) is not as well-known as its cousin, wheat, but by nature it is a wholefood with a deep, appealing, nutty flavour. Spelt is a grain rich in nutrition with a high protein and fibre content and is a good source of Vitamin B2, manganese, niacin and thiamine to name a few.
Sunflower seeds are one of the main sources of polyunsaturated fat - the types of fat that may protect the heart. The mild, nutty-tasting seeds are bursting with nutrients, including vitamin E, a vital antioxidant and magnesium which is necessary for healthy bones and energy production.
Golden Linseeds are a rare variety of linseeds (otherwise known as flax seeds), differentiated by their golden colour. Linseeds are a good source of omega-3 fats, fibre and many nutrients. The Flax plant, responsible for producing the glossy golden linseeds is one of the oldest cultivated plants known to man.
Barley is a versatile grain with a robust, nutlike flavour. This grain's claim to nutritional fame is its source of soluble and insoluble fibre, which is known to aid metabolism and promote a healthy, digestive system. Barley is also low in fat and contains several essential vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants.
Helga's Spelt & Sunflower Seed and Helga's Golden Linseed & Barley contain no artificial flavours, no animal fats, are lactose free and a source of dietary fibre. Available exclusively in Coles for a limited time only at RRP $4.59ea.
