How Our Breads Are Made

Caring for your bread

For best results, eat immediately!

We recommend storing your ACE Bakery Bread at room temperature in a paper or cloth bread bag. Putting it in the refrigerator isn’t a good idea because that will help turn your bread stale faster.

Freezing your bread

If you buy loaves to freeze, please do so as soon as possible. Tightly wrap each loaf and seal in a good quality freezer bag. We also recommend checking your freezer’s temperature to make sure it is set to -18˚C (0˚F) and to use your bread within one month. Improper wrapping, extended freezing and temperature fluctuation may result in freezer burn and affect the bread’s quality.

Defrosting your bread

To defrost frozen bread, remove from the freezer and, leaving in freezer bag, let stand at room temperature for three to four hours. Or, wrap frozen loaf in aluminum foil and warm in oven preheated to 165˚C (325˚F) for 20 to 30 minutes.

Crisping the crust

Place thawed, unwrapped bread in a 200˚C (400˚F) oven for five minutes before serving. Let stand for five to 10 minutes before cutting. This method also helps restore the bread’s crust on humid days.

Humidity alert

During the summer months, humidity can cause ACE Bakery Bread to lose its crispness. Please place your bread in a 200˚C (400˚F) oven for five to eight minutes. Remove from the oven and let it rest for five to 10 minutes before cutting.
