Essene Bread

New Zealand's only baker of Essene bread

Essene Loaf With Keypoints

Simple organic ingredients.

Essene bread is really simple. It is just mashed up sprouts of organic grain – rye or wheat – and the only ingredient added is purified water. Nothing else.


Sprouting is a simple process but it has a huge effect on the grain. It makes indigestible grain easily digestible, flavoursome, alive and delicious.


Many people who have allergies to wheat, yeast, dairy are able to eat and enjoy Essene Bread.

Blood types

Readers of The Eat Right Diet by Dr. Peter D'Adamo will be aware that Essene bread is recommended for all blood types.


This is bread with history it has been made since ancient times – some say 6000 years – and yet it has many advantages for modern times.
