Q. What is Grow Fit's Whole Wheat Pita Bread?
A popular family of yeast leavened flat bread that is a widely known version with an interior pocket. According to archeologists, pita originated in Mediterranean region. It was known to be carried by traders who traveled across the Arabian and Sahara desert. Our Pita Bread is incredibly soft and light. It is made from whole wheat flour and has the trademark pita pocket ideal for stuffing with hummus, baba ganoush, tahini, falafel or fill it up with anything you prefer and top your favorite veggies. There are different types of pita bread with regional variations. We try our best to replicate the authentic flavor!
Q. How is it made?
It is a rather simple bread that’s made with limited technologies. Our whole wheat pita bread is made with classic ingredients like whole wheat flour, yeast, brown sugar, salt, water and wheat gluten where the dough is rolled thin and baked at a high temperature. The dough expands dramatically forming an interior pocket (formed by steam). To get that puffy goodness we make sure that the dough is soft, smooth but holds its shape while proofing. The oven temperature is well maintained and we use only preheated trays for baking. All our breads are made to order.
Q. How is it used?
Perfect as a snack or as a small meal for both adults and kids. Replace regular pita bread with Grow Fit’s Pita Bread. It is traditionally accompanied by hummus, falafel, baba ganoush or tzatziki for a Mediterranean treat. If you are looking for warm, fluffy, and perfectly-proofed Whole Wheat Pita Bread then this for you. Creative cooks have also used it to make thin-crust pizzas. Additionally, pita chips- a baked or fried brittle chip made from pita bread, can be eaten with nearly every dip imaginable.
Q. Why should I buy it?
Fermentation is the chemical breakdown of carbohydrate and sugar naturally found in grain flour by yeast to carbon dioxide causing gas bubbles to form, which has a leavening effect on dough.
In our bread making process we use dry yeast and spend enough hours for proofing the bread. This allows fermentation to occur and some of the gluten to be broken down. In return it makes it easier for your body to digest. We also use less sugar. This is a unique whole-wheat pita bread, which is hard to find.
Q. Why should I make the switch?
Our pita bread is prepared using whole wheat flour. It is a good source of fiber and protein, with minimal fat. It has barely any sugar and has calcium. One pita normally gives lesser calories. It does not contain preservatives and chemicals as opposed to store-bought ones. Pita bread found in grocery stores are generally prepared using 100% all purpose flour and are loaded with way too many chemicals in order to increase their shelf life.

Q. Does it contain sugar?
Our Whole Wheat Pita Bread dough is fermented using yeast which needs some sugar. Sugar balances the bitterness produced during the fermentation process and lends a sweet taste to the finished product. And of course we make sure that added sugar is within its limits so you get a low sugar product.
Q. Does it contain wheat?
Yes. Our Pita Bread is made with wheat flour, has a finer, lighter texture and usually has a longer shelf life. Pita bread in addition to the day's meal helps in maintaining the energy we need to get from our diet by providing carbohydrates for energy production.
Q. What is gluten?
Gluten is a combination of natural proteins found in wheat. They are the real workhorse of the world’s most famous bread and pastries. Gluten is essential to the bread making process as it helps bread maintain its shape and flavor.
Q. Should I avoid gluten?
If you have Celiac's disease or some other autoimmune disorder, yes you should avoid gluten. If you don't have an autoimmune disorder you should be just fine consuming gluten.
Q. Do you have vegan options?
It is absolutely vegan friendly. Some people have questions about yeast as it is a living, non-plant organism. It is part of the fungi kingdom and is therefore not an animal, so it is fine for vegans to consume, assuming they are not yeast intolerant. Please note that we are not a vegan bakery, and if you are concerned please inquire with us before purchasing.
Q. Can we freeze it?
Yes you can definitely freeze our pita bread up to 3 months and keep it good for later. Need to thaw your pita bread? Just stick it in the fridge overnight, and it’s good to go!
