Alpine launches heart bread range
Alpine Breads have launched a new range; ‘Alpine Heart Breads’.
Alpine Heart Breads are made using the CSIRO developed BARLEYmax which is said to have twice the amount of fibre than regular barley.
Alpine says the inclusion of BARLEYmax provides a minimum of 1 g of beta-glucan per serve which Alpine states can help lower the amount of biliary cholesterol that is re-absorbed by the body as part of a diet containing 3g of beta-glucan per day.
The bead is available in two varieties – Alpine Breads Heart Fibre and Alpine Breads Heart Wholemeal
The Healthy Grain Company, which is one third-owned by the CSIRO, has the rights to the BARLEYmax.
Chief Executive Officer of The Healthy Grain Company, Robert Burbury, said The Healthy Grain Company was thrilled to provide BARLEYmax to Alpine as a key ingredient in their Heart breads range.
“The long-standing commitment that Alpine has shown to improving the health of Australians through their wholegrain bread range is well aligned with The Healthy Grain vision and we look forward to a long standing, mutually beneficial relationship with Alpine,” Bunbury said.
Alpine Bread is stocked at Woolworths and Coles supermarkets.
