Handling & Baking Instructions

Handling Instructions

Since our bread is baked without preservatives, we recommend enjoying within a few days of purchase. If you need more time, we offer these suggestions:

STORE the bread on your counter in the plastic bag to seal in freshness for several days. If you need more time, we recommend freezing.

FREEZE your loaf in this bag for up to one month from date of purchase. We recommend not refrigerating your bread.

THAW bread at room temperature or place frozen slice directly in toaster or oven. Do not refreeze loaf after thawing.

REFRESH the bread in a toaster or oven to bring back the baked fresh goodness.

Very dry bread can be re-hydrated by dabbing water on the crumb before refreshing.

Toasted bread is always delicious!

Heat & Serve Instructions

While Izzio Heat & Serve breads are ready to eat, for the most enjoyable experience and most delicious, flavorful and crusty bread please follow these steps:

1. Pre-heat oven to 400˚F

2. Remove bread from bag and place on middle oven rack

3. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until crust is golden brown(For frozen bread, bake 14-18 minutes)

4. Remove bread from oven and let cool, then enjoy!

If not planning to bake bread day of purchase, then freeze and enjoy later.
Every oven is different, our baking instructions are meant as a guideline only; your oven may need more or less time.

Heat & Serve Baking Tip

Prior to baking, mist inside of oven with 2-3 spritzes of water; added humidity will gently awaken the bread, making it more lush, voluminous and create a golden crackly crust. Don’t have a spritz bottle? No worries, just run your hands under the faucet with cool water and gently pat the bread before placing it in the oven.
