French Meadow Bakery(TM) rolls out with first premade, frozen organic dinner rolls

Minneapolis, Minn. (Nov. 20, 2007) – French Meadow Bakery™ has made dinner a little easier.

The take-and-bake rolls are: 16 oz. Healthy Hemp™ Rolls, 10 oz. Organic Ciabatta Rolls and 16 oz. Sprouted Organic Peasant Rolls with Ezekiel Grains. Located in the frozen natural bread section of your grocery store, each bag contains eight rolls for a suggested price of $3.49. The Healthy Hemp™ Rolls SRP is $4.49.

Lynn Gordon, President of French Meadow Bakery™, said these new rolls are unlike any other product in the market because they are organic and naturally leavened.

“Our real sourdough rolls are made with the time-honored practice of traditional sourdough baking, which allows the dough to develop and rise slowly, producing a nicer texture and flavor,” Gordon noted. “In about 10 minutes you have rolls just like your grandma spent a day making.”

The Healthy Hemp™ Rolls are made with organic sprouted grains and they are loaded with hempseed, flaxseed and organic pumpkin seeds. They are high in whole grain fiber and protein as well as offer a rich source of omega 3 and 6. The Organic Ciabatta Rolls are an Italian classic – crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. For the calorie counters, these rolls have only 80 calories per serving. The Sprouted Organic Peasant Rolls with Ezekiel Grains offer a delicious whole grain nutty taste. By combining organic whole wheat berries, barley, millet, lentils and spelt and soaking them, you have a complete protein roll that is nutritious and convenient to bake. The rolls contain no sweeteners, oils, artificial ingredients or preservatives.

Since 1985, French Meadow Bakery™ has been one of the longest certified organic bakeries (likely the longest) in the country. The company has 65 full-time employees that work out of a 100-year-old Minneapolis building – once used as a livery stable – that is connected to the popular French Meadow Café. The aromatic smell of freshly baked bread travels upstairs for the employees and visitors to enjoy. The company operates a second manufacturing facility in Eagan, Minn. French Meadow’s products are sold nationally in mainstream grocery and specialty food stores. Please visit for more information.
