About Kinnikinnick Soft Bread & Buns
The result of nearly a year of research and development, Kinnikinnick’s new soft bread formulations were developed to offer consumers the most appealing combination of taste and texture currently available in the gluten free bread category. In addition to being gluten free, Kinnikinnick’s soft bread is also dairy free, nut free and certified OU Kosher, making it ideal for those with special dietary needs. With a nice rise like traditional bread, Kinnikinnick’s soft bread is made with no artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors; is fortified with five essential nutrients; contains at least five grams of fiber per serving; zero cholesterol; and lower calories making it one of the most nutritionally sound gluten free breads on the market today.
The line’s compelling package contains 25% more product than other gluten free bread alternatives (16 slices in a loaf compared to 12!), features a gluten free certification logo that indicates the product is tested and contains less than 5ppm of gluten, and highlights a smart phone scan code enabling consumers to immediately access information while in the store.
Kinnikinnick Soft Multigrain Bread was awarded SELF Magazine's 2012 Healthy Foods Award - Best Gluten Free Bread in May of 2012.
