BREAD dates back over thousands of years and continues to be a fundamental part of many people’s diet today.
With well over 200 varieties readily available, it is easy to see why it continues to be so popular with consumers around the world.
As part of National Bread week (16-22April), which highlights the role that bread plays in people’s daily diet and promotes its nutritional benefits, Newton Dee is inviting customers to come along and try its wide range of freshly baked produce.
The Newton Dee bakery, in Bieldside, which has been in operation for almost 50 years, bakes quality breads and confectionary goods on a daily basis. All produce is prepared using traditional techniques and organic ingredient wherever possible, and includes options for special dietary requirements, including gluten free and wholemeal products.
Newton Dee, which offers supported accommodation and occupation for adults with special and complex needs, provides an environment where the residents can enjoy an independent home life whilst maintaining a daily working life with responsibilities. The bakery currently has 15 adults with special needs working and learning in the bakery each day.
Senior co-worker at Newton Dee, Jacob Vollrath, said: ”People have been making bread for thousand of years and to date it is still as popular as ever. Bread is an excellent source of carbohydrates, protein B vitamins, fibre and believe it or not, white bread is a reasonable source of calcium. The residents who work at the bakery, love trying out new and different flavours each weekend and often incorporate our home-grown fruit and vegetables to recipes. As many people are very busy nowadays, trying to balance their work life around their children, we want to encourage them to come along to the bakery where they can get freshly baked bread everyday without the hassle of baking it themselves.”
Newton Dee also has an on-site coffee and gift shop, craft studio and a grocery store, which are all open to the public to continually raise funds for the facility. The freshly home-cooked bread and produce is available to purchase from the bakery and the grocery store everyday. The bakery is open Monday to Friday, 9am-12 noon, 2pm-4.30pm and closed weekends and various holidays.
