Q:How should I store my bread?
A: The best way to store your bread is on your counter or in a bread box at room temperature. Take care to keep your bread away from sunlight, heat, and high moisture levels, they can cause the bread to mold early. To store bread for extended amounts of time (up to three months), put a second bag around the original bag, seal it tightly, and place it in your freezer. Thaw slices as you need them. Storing bread in the refrigerator will keep your loaf from molding; however, it may also dry out your bread. We recommend freezing bread if you can’t possibly eat it all.
Q:Why doesn't the bread mold?
A: The organic dried cane syrup (sugar) and organic cultured wheat are natural ways that help keep our bread from molding quickly. Also, we go to great lengths to ensure that our facility is free of any airborne contaminants that can cause mold. Finally, we strive to make sure that loaves of Dave’s Killer Bread are sold as fresh as possible off the grocery store shelf to give you the most time to enjoy it at home. We do not use any artificial or chemical preservatives.
Q:Why is this bread more expensive?
A: At Dave’s Killer Bread, we insist on killer quality and ingredients. Our products are all Canadian-certified organic and Non-GMO Product Verified and these organic ingredients are generally more expensive than traditional ingredients. But we don’t stop here. We aim to deliver a power packed experience with killer taste and texture.
Q:Where is the expiration or "best by" date on a package of Dave’s Killer Bread?
A: The expiration date would say “best by” on a sticker with the expiration date on the bag. When you buy again-let your store manager know if you do not see a date. (They would want to know.)
Q:Who is Dave?
A: Dave Dahl is the founder of ‘Dave’s Killer Bread’. This story begun after Dave spent 15 years in prison, where he found an opportunity to reinvent himself in the most unlikely of places: the family bakery. Dave set out to make a bread like no other – the best-tasting, organic and nutritious whole grain loaf – and the result is what he called “killer” bread. Although Dave is no longer with the company, his legacy lives on!
Q:Who owns Dave’s Killer Bread?
A: Almost two years ago, Flowers Foods, Inc. purchased Dave’s Killer Bread. They wholeheartedly support the organic, Non-GMO, clean and great-tasting products and there is no way this is going to change. Flowers has enabled Dave’s Killer Bread to launch nationally.
Since June 1, 2017, Weston Bakeries Ltd. has assumed exclusive licensing rights from Flowers Foods, Inc. to produce and market the brand in Canada.
Q:Do your products contain animal products (dairy, eggs, honey, etc.)?
A: All our 5 SKUs sold in Canada are vegan, so they contain no animal products.
Q:Do your products contain gluten and wheat?
A: We have wheat and gluten in every product. It’s really hard to get a gluten-free bread to match our high standards for killer taste and texture (we’re trying!).
Q:Do your products contain peanuts and tree nuts
A: Good news! We do not have peanuts or tree nuts in our products or in our bakery and there is no potential of cross-contamination.

Q:What is your product’s Kosher status?
A: All Dave’s Killer Bread products are Kosher and certified by the Orthodox Union. Check out their website for more information: www.oukosher.org
Q:What is your product’s Whole Grains Council status?
A: All Dave’s Killer Bread products are authorized by the Whole Grains Council to use the Whole Grains stamp on our product. Our products are full of whole grains including the bran, germ and endosperm: in contrast to refined grains, which only retains the endosperm. In order to say 100% Whole Grain on the packaging, every single grain in the bread needs to be 100% Whole Grain. Because we have a small amount of oat fiber in our bread to increase nutritional value, we couldn’t officially make that claim.
