Q – Why would the bread go mouldy before the best before date?
A – Best before dates are established based on a consistent room temperature of 20 degrees centigrade. Warmer temperatures will accelerate mold growth, as will the added humidity that comes with it. Again, optimal enjoyment of our products requires them to be frozen and later defrosted as needed.
Q –Why does the bread crumble when I slice into it?
A – If any of our products become crumbly when handled, it is an indication that it has become stale, which means that it has lost its moisture. If you warm the bread slightly in a microwave or toaster, you should find the moisture restored so that it performs as normal. However, do not overheat as this will require the dough to reset before it can be handled properly.
Q – What do the numbers next to the bar code mean?
A – The numbers to the right of the bar code are the lot code and inform consumers of the date the product was produced. It is frozen immediately and can be kept in that condition for up to 8 months and still be enjoyed.
