Vitamin D bread

Are you in Ontario? If you are be sure to look for Stonemill Vitamin D bread on your next grocery trip. Stonemill is the first company in English Canada to introduce vitamin D in their line of wellbeing packaged, sliced breads.

These breads are healthy and nutritious and have 25% of daily value (%DV) of vitamin D per serving (2 slices), which is considered by Health Canada as “an excellent source of vitamin D”.

By eating 2 slices of Stonemill bread (selected varieties) you can get almost as much vitamin D as what’s found in a cup of milk and more vitamin D than what’s found in egg yolks or fortified orange juice.

Here’s a list of the products they offer containing Vitamin D:

  • Chia – 6 Supergrains,
  • Sprouted 3 Grains – 3 Grains & Oatmeal,
  • 11 Whole Grains – Grains & Honey,
  • 12 Whole Grains – Sprouted Rye,
  • Omega 3 – Sprouted Flax and Sunflower & Walnut,
  • Fibre & Fruit – Cranberry Pumpkin Seed,
  • Flax & Chia – Supergrains
  • Sourdough – Multigrain
  • Sourdough – Classic French
  • Sourdough – Hearty Bavarian Rye
  • Sourdough – Belgian Whole Wheat
The benefits of Vitamin D
Vitamin D is known as an essential nutrient and it is often referred to as the “sunshine vitamin” because our bodies can make vitamin D when sunlight hits our skin. Research indicates though that many Canadians aren’t getting their recommended daily amount of vitamin D as as Canadians we are especially susceptible to deficiencies in vitamin D due to lack of sunlight, particularly in winter months.

Vitamin D is important because it works in conjunction with calcium to help maintain strong bones and teeth. It’s also vital for normal muscle, nerve and immune system functioning. Getting the needed daily value by eating a couple of slices of bread at breakfast is an easy way to get a good source of natural Vitamin D. 

Stonemill bread is non-fortified and it is leavened with yeast which naturally has high vitamin D content.

Stonemill is also a company that believes in the “3 P’s” philosophy: people, planet, prosperity. I like supporting companies that are passionate about corporate social responsibility! Check out more about their values here.
