Breads made with preservatives last longer, but that also means that taste is sacrificed due to the resting of preservative. Our bread does not have preservatives which is one of the reasons our bread tastes so good! This also means that you should not store our bread on the shelf. Shelf life for non-preservative bread is about 3 days. Putting bread into a refrigerator will stop the yeast from dying (how mold develops) as quickly as leaving it on the shelf. You can also freeze bread, place it into the refrigerator, and let it defrost to last longer. You never want to take frozen bread and place in room to defrost. The water will moisten the bread and make it soggy.
All bread at Alessio Baking Company is made without the use of any preservatives to guarantee fresh, high quality bread!
