Does COBS Bread bake gluten / wheat-free breads?
COBS Bread uses wheat-based flour, therefore all products contain gluten.
Does COBS Bread bake yeast-free products?
Yeast is an important part of bread making. It ferments sugars and produces a gas which enables the bread to rise.
Baker’s yeast is in all products made at COBS, with the exception of scones which are leavened with baking powder and Pain au Levain which is leavened with wild yeast and natural starter.
Does COBS Bread bake breads containing animal fats or products?
Many breads contain ham, bacon, eggs, cheese, milk and butter including the savoury pullaparts, rolls, scones, croissants and danishes.
Some products do not contain any animal products including COBS Bread’s Traditional range and the majority of fruit breads. COBS Bread’s suppliers indicate that all emulsifiers, including Lipase and Amylase, used in products are vegetable-based. The rennet in cheese may be derived from animals or vegetables.
