Haverland protein bread has few carbohydrates, but a lot of vegetable protein. It is therefore suitable for people who follow the so-called "low carb principle" (low carbohydrate), e.g. according to the "Atkins diet" or also the "Slim in Sleep diet" according to Dr. Pape. The carbohydrates in this Haverland bread are replaced by vegetable protein, namely wheat and soy protein. Whole rye flour and sunflower seeds round out the taste. Thus, the proportion of carbohydrates here is reduced to 15% percent.
The bread is pasteurized after packaging. This process allows the bread to be stored for a long time until the package is opened, without the addition of artificial preservatives.
The bread is highly heated in the temperature-stable packaging. This process serves to kill possible germs. After heating, the bread cools down again and a longer shelf life is ensured, as long as the packaging remains closed in its original form.
The pasteurization process allows Haverland breads to be made without the use of artificial preservatives.
