Allergen-free bread with benefits you can feel.

How it started

“With grandparents and parents who immigrated to Canada, I grew up eating food that we planted, harvested and cooked ourselves. 
Because I saw first hand the way my Nonni (grandparents) used our homegrown and fresh ingredients to cook, I always knew what went into the food I ate and it always felt good after. I didn’t realize until I was older how not everyone had the same experience or relationship with food. 
Unfortunately, so many of the products you come across today, including and especially those you think are ‘healthy’, contain very little nutritional value, a lot of sugar and unnecessary ingredients. To add, they often leave you feeling bloated and tired, which we’ve affectionately started to call ” the bread-hangover.”

Our promise

“At Queen St. Bakery we take it right down to the basics and back to the beginning. We only use ingredients that are naturally full of the stuff that your body needs and naturally free from the stuff that it doesn’t. With ingredients like chia and beans instead of wheat, rice and corn, our bread is both gluten free and full of nutrients like magnesium, calcium and iron plus all of the good fibre that promotes gut health. Overall, I eat better, feel better, and have more energy, which is rare to say especially when you’re talking about bread.”
Giovanni Angelucci – Founder/CEO

Supercharged with nature's superfoods

Queen Street Bakery was built on the belief that food companies should be as transparent about what they put into their food as what they remove. Because we know all to well that just because something is gluten-free, doesn’t mean it’s good for you.
That’s why we’re proud to make our breads, buns and doughs from simple functional ingredients that feel good to eat. Ingredients that are naturally full of fiber and protein and naturally free from gluten, nuts and dairy.

 

Chia Seeds: Protein and Fibre

Chia’s one tiny super food. With 3x more iron than spinach, 5x more calcium than milk and 8x more Omega-3 than salmon, these itty bitty protein-packed seeds will make you feel stronger and keep you full longer. Cheers, chia.

Grape Skin Flour: Amazing Antioxidants

When it comes to grapes, the most abundant concentrations of nutrients and antioxidants are found in the skin and seeds.

Sorghum Flour: Healthy Phytochemicals

Sorghum is a naturally gluten-free ancient cereal grain full of benefits, including high levels of unsaturated fats, protein, fibre and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, potassium and iron. Remarkably, sorghum has been found to contain even more antioxidants than blueberries and pomegranates. Studies suggest that certain phytochemicals in sorghum help reduce the risk of certain cancers more than other grains. It has also been shown to lower cholesterol and support cardiovascular health. Who knew a grain could do all that?

Honey: Antibacterial Properties

Consumed in moderation, honey has several buzzworthy benefits. Studies have shown it contains antibacterial properties, thanks to the diligent worker bees who make it. Honey is scientifically known to help fight numerous bacterial strains, such as E. coli and salmonella, staph and even the bacteria that cause H. pylori and peptic ulcers. You better bee-lieve it (sorry).

Inulin Fibre from Chicory Root: Great for Digestion

Inulin is a soluble dietary fibre found in certain plant foods such as chicory root, which some people take daily as a nutritional supplement. Inulin has also been associated with improved digestive health, such as decreased constipation, improved nutrient absorption, increased beneficial gut bacteria, and better overall immune health. Several studies have even suggested that inulin may improve blood sugar control in people with pre-diabetes and diabetes. Now isn’t that sweet.
