About BASE BREAD

If water droplets occur inside the packaging of BASE BREAD, it is still safe to consume as it does not affect the quality.

Bread typically contains about 35-40% moisture. Therefore, the moisture in the bread can be released as water vapor and form droplets due to temperature changes in the surrounding environment.

The water droplets that occur are originally present in the bread and are a natural phenomenon, so they do not affect the texture or quality.

Furthermore, through long-term storage tests, we have confirmed that BASE BREAD is safe from a microbial standpoint and poses no hygiene issues.

Regarding the oxygen absorber inside the packaging, we have confirmed with the manufacturer that the presence of water droplets generated from the bread does not affect its performance.

The main ingredient in BASE BREAD is whole wheat flour. Compared to refined flour, whole wheat flour is rich in minerals, vitamins and other nutrients.

Nutrients lacking in whole-wheat flour are supplemented by the addition of chia seeds and kelp, among others.

We want you to feel safe eating it every day, so we don't use any additional additives such as synthetic preservatives or synthetic coloring agents.

The ingredient labels and allergy labels of BASE BREAD are as follows

BASE BREAD is food that is safe and healthy to consume. Therefore, we do not add unnecessary additives such as synthetic preservatives or artificial coloring. While we do include some vitamins to enhance the nutritional value, they are commonly found in supplements and are safe for consumption.

Please avoid direct sunlight and humidity and store in a cool place. If the room temperature is high and humidity is high, we recommend storing in the refrigerator on hot days.
BASE BREAD recommends freezing rather than refrigerating, as refrigeration may affect the flavor.

When defrosting BASE BREAD, please take out the deoxidizer from the bag and heat it up in microwave oven for about 500W /1 minute. (take this out because it's not directly related to the question)

This product has been tested by professional organization for long term high temperature storage and confirmed to be hygienic and safe.

Microwave (500W): Heat for approximately 20 seconds.

Toaster (1000W): Heat for approximately 1 minute.

*When heating, be sure to remove the oxygen absorber.
*The heating times mentioned above are approximate for one package. *Adjust the cooking time according to the model of your microwave and the quantity of bread.

FAQs

Our company uses ingredients that have been confirmed to be safe and provided by major food manufacturers in Japan. Food products sold in Japan are subject to standards set by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare regarding microbial strains, microbial counts, permissible pesticides, and residual pesticide levels. Our ingredient suppliers comply with these standards and provide products that meet the requirements. We conduct regular inspections to ensure safety, so you can enjoy our products with peace of mind.

BASE FOOD is rich in dietary fiber, is filling, and contains a balanced amount of proteins and vitamins, etc., making it suitable for dietary control during weight loss. In addition, the carbohydrate content of BASE BREAD has been reduced by 35%*1. A balanced diet is important for a healthy and strong body. Inadequate intake of nutrients can lead to muscle loss and a decline in basal metabolism, and BASE FOOD products provide a balanced intake of essential nutrients while reducing the intake of carbohydrates, making them ideal for use as a staple food during weight loss. However, too little food may cause constipation. Combining with vegetable soup or miso soup can increase bowel movements. *1 From the 2015 edition of the Japanese Food Standard Ingredient List (7th edition), compared to regular bread (same serving size).

BASE BREAD contains a small amount of ethanol, approximately 1-2% concentration. The majority of this ethanol is derived from the food quality maintenance agent used in the packaging, and it evaporates over time. Similar amounts of ethanol are commonly found in confectionery products that utilize ethanol evaporating agents, and there is no harm to pregnant women or infants. Please rest assured.

When you open BASE BREAD, you may momentarily perceive an alcohol-like sensation due to the release of gas. The gas escapes outside the package upon opening, and the alcohol within the food also dissipates over time. If you have concerns, you can further facilitate the evaporation of alcohol by toasting BASE BREAD in a 1000W toaster for approximately 3 minutes.

BASE FOOD is not gluten-free.

BASE FOOD products are developed under the guidance of nutritionists and experts in the field of nutrition. Gluten allergies are very rare among the Japanese population, and the benefits of a gluten-free diet are not widely recognized for individuals without gluten allergies. If you do not experience any discomfort after consuming bread or noodles, you can enjoy BASE FOOD products without worries.

BASE BREAD contains eggs and milk, so it is not considered a completely plant-based product.
