At Vogel’s bakery we know all about the wonderful health benefits of seeds and grains, which is why our lovely loaves are crammed to bursting with them! Grains and seeds are rich in complex carbohydrates and fibre, so they are an essential part of any healthy diet. But eating seeds and grains on their own is not the most exciting culinary experience – throw some dough from the Vogel’s bakery into the mix and you can enjoy the health benefits of seeds and grains in a wholesome, exciting way!
The health benefits of seeds and grains are showcased in four of our most popular loaves – Sunflower & Barley, Original Mixed Grain, Soya & Linseed and Wholemeal & Oat. Each loaf has its own unique nutritional value. Let’s take a look at each one:
Vogel’s Sunflower & Barley Loaf
Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E, which promotes cardiovascular health. Sunflower seeds perform an important antioxidant function and a good balance of vitamin E in your diet can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Vitamin E is also good for the skin – protecting it from UV rays and keeping it young and healthy looking.
Sunflower seeds also contain magnesium, which, among many other health benefits, promotes a jolly mood. Great taste aside, our healthy bread will make you smile too!
Vogel’s Original Mixed Grain Loaf
Alfred’s recipe for this timeless loaf has remained unchanged since 1954. It contains a mix of UK flours, including wholemeal and rye. Now, rye is a nutritional delight. It has numerous benefits – the ability to help with weight loss, increase the efficiency of your digestive system, lower your risk of blood diabetes, lower your blood pressure and provide general protection to your cardiovascular health.
Rye is a true standout when looking at the health benefits of seeds and grains and is an essential ingredient in the Vogel’s bakery.
Vogel’s Soya & Linseed Loaf
Need a little extra energy to get through the day? Or want to pack a punch with a nutritious, wholesome breakfast? Vogel’s Soya & Linseed Loaves are oozing with proteins, minerals and different kinds of fibre. A couple of slices of this lovely loaf for breakfast and you’ll bounce out the door.
Linseeds are also known as flaxseeds and are widely considered as one of the first superfoods. We don’t have enough space here to list all the benefits of linseed so here are just a few – improved digestion, healthier skin and hair, lower cholesterol, lower sugar cravings, balanced hormones and weight loss.
Vogel’s Wholemeal & Oat
The oats in this loaf not only add a tasty nutty flavour – they also contain beta-glucans. Beta-glucans?! What are they you ask?! Well, beta-glucans are soluble fibres that slow down the absorption of carbs into the blood stream. This will make you feel fuller for longer, reducing the temptation to snack between meals.
So, there you have it – the health benefits of seeds and grains enjoyed through the wonderful taste of Vogel’s breads.
