Q. What is Grow Fit’s Garlic Bread?
There's a lot of history behind garlic bread like when it was made, where and why. Garlic bread started to become popular in the 1940s in Italian-American restaurants. They are originally made with French or Italian bread slices and spread garlic butter on each side. Now we try our best to replicate the authentic flavor. Minced fresh garlic and oregano is key to these flavor-packed crusty slices, which your family members would snap up with a single bite. The herbs are mixed into the dough, and then are slathered with herb and garlic butter. We make our own garlic butter.
Q. How is it made?
The secret to our heavenly garlic bread is to keep it simple. All we used is a classic list of ingredients which are our pantry staples and a lot of garlic. Made using a combination of all-purpose flour which is used as a base for the dough, yeast and sugar acts as the fermentation agent. Sugar acts as a catalyst which kicks start the yeast fermentation process. We liked butter much better than oil, softening it first or mixing it with the garlic to make garlic butter. With a little experimenting, we baked the bread at moderate temperature, the tops dried to a crunch but the inner bread was warm and chewy.
Q. How is it used?
Guess what? Need something that’s perfect to share at family get-togethers. Hint: it’s garlic-y. There’s pretty much no wrong way to eat garlic bread. The toasts make an excellent appetizer or hors d’oeuvre when topped with other ingredients, such as pesto, chutney, skewers, or cheeses. When served as it is, they are a tasty accompaniment for soups and salads.
Instructions for using - warm it in the oven or bake it for 2 mins for crunch.
Q. Why should I buy it?
Fermentation is the chemical breakdown of carbohydrate and sugar naturally found in grain flour by dry yeast to carbon dioxide causing gas bubbles to form, which has a leavening effect on dough.
In our bread making process we spend enough hours proofing the bread. This allows fermentation to occur and some of the gluten to be broken down. In return it makes it easier for your body to digest.
Q. Why should I make the switch?
Garlic Bread is prepared using all natural and simple ingredients. It does not contain preservatives and chemicals as opposed to store-bought ones. Breads found in grocery stores are generally prepared using 100% all purpose flour and are loaded with way too many chemicals in order to increase their shelf life.

Q. Does it contain sugar?
Our bread dough is fermented using yeast and a small amount of sugar! Sugar balances the bitterness produced during the fermentation process and lends a sweet taste to the finished product. And of course we make sure that added sugar is within its limits so you get a low sugar end product.
Q. Does it contain wheat?
Yes. Garlic bread is made with all purpose flour, has a finer, lighter texture and usually has a longer shelf life.
Q. What is gluten?
Gluten is a combination of the natural proteins found in wheat. They are the real workhorse of the world’s most famous bread and pastries. Gluten is essential to the bread making process as it helps bread maintain its shape and flavor.
Q. Should I avoid gluten?
If you have Celiac's disease or some other autoimmune disorder, yes you should avoid gluten. If you don't have an autoimmune disorder you should be just fine consuming gluten.
Q. Do you have vegan options?
