The Mission behind BREADISTA

Our goal is simple, showing that real bread is not evil when you choose it right. Let’s bring traditions back into your kitchen with simple ingredients for improved health. Skip the store-bought products with additives and preservatives you can’t pronounce immediately. Skip high amounts of yeast and sugars, color, dough enhancer and conditioner that profits the industry not your body. We also do not use enriched, bleached or bromated flour – never!

By the way, did you know that a longer fermentation eases the digestability of bread? That’s how we develop recipes, with minimal amount of yeast and a long resting time. We let the dough work its magic with up to 24 hours of fermentation while your hands-on time is minimal.

Every single bread baking mix brings you on more than one baking journey through the century-old German bread culture. Make out of a rustic baguette ‘Wurzelbrot’ a pizza crust or a classic loaf. Our ready-to-use artisan bread mixes make your baking a full success. And, they’re way more healthier and tastier than a store-bought product.

” There is to break a lance for bread because the stigma persists – bread or carbs are bad. That’s clearly not true. You just have to choose the right ones. “

*Interview March 2020:

Tanja, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
As a native German, I’m addicted to bread. Living without good and healthy bread is nearly impossible (smile). In Germany, especially in the Southwest where I’m from, are a lot of artisan bakeries with a tremendous amount of breads and rolls. Not to forget our real German Brezel (US: ‘Pretzel’).

When we moved to the US finding good comparable bread was tricky. We still miss that gorgeous smell of fresh bread when you come into a bakery. Anyone who has ever visited Germany or France may know exactly what I am talking about.

Have you ever consciously noticed the smell in the bread aisle in your supermarket? Store bought bread here in the US is far away from ‘bread’. Even when you want to buy flour, you have to check the ingredients list. That was also totally new for us – bleached, bromated, enriched flour – nothing we had……. read more!

Interview with Tanja of Breadista, 2020

*Interview June 2021:

Hi Tanja, what role has risk played in your life or career?
In short – taking risks is part of life. Otherwise, you wouldn’t come forward.

The older you get, the more you see the need of taking risks. The difference is, that you then think more about the cons / pros in every decision you make. I’m mostly based on facts, that’s where my decisions and taking risks are coming from.

Whether it was……. read more!
