LYNDHURST, N.J. — Dr. Schär USA, a subsidiary of Burgstall, Italy-based Dr. Schär AG/SPA, has revamped its original line of bread and introduced a new style of Artisan Baker bread. The new line has replaced the original Classic White and Multigrain loaves the company previously sold.
The new Artisan Baker loaves are gluten-free, hand-crafted and baked with ancient grains. Crafted by European bakers, the bread contains agave syrup, buckwheat, sunflower seeds and ancient grains. Dr. Schär said the bread will be available in the bread aisle instead of the freezer for the best convenience.
