Dave’s Killer Bread (DKB) has achieved Non-GMO Project verification for all its 13 varieties of organic breads. DKB uses no artificial ingredients, preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. The Oregon-based company is the No.1-selling organic bread maker in the U.S.
Packaging on all products, including DKB’s popular 21 Whole Grains and Seeds, Blues Bread and Good Seed, now displays the Non-GMO Project Verified seal prominently. The seal is part of a new, bolder package for all the company’s products.
“Transparency is part of our DNA,” said Dave’s Killer Bread VP of Marketing Michelle Hunt. “Consumers can already see the care we take to source high-quality, nutrition-rich ingredients. We power pack our breads with ancient grains, seeds and organic ingredients. Organic and non-GMO have always been our way of making bread, before there were certifications or consumer demand. Our clean label confirms it, and we’re proud to have all our breads certified.”
Added Megan Westgate, director of the Non-GMO Project, “We’re excited to be working with such dedicated brands as Dave’s Killer Bread. The work required to verify an entire product line shows a high level of commitment to transparency and to changing the overall supply chain.”
In addition to being organic and Non-GMO Project Verified, DKB says it delivers “killer” taste and texture. Powerful in nutrition and protein, the breads are loaded with Omega-3s, fiber, seeds and organic ingredients such as amaranth, barley, spelt, blue cornmeal and pumpkin seeds. An average slice has 4-5g of protein, as much as an egg. DKB’s Thin-Sliced varieties have all the nutrition of the brand’s regular deli slices, with only 60 or 70 calories, according to the company.
