Hearty Bread in Quezon City Offers Freshly Baked Gluten-Free Loaves
Throughout the years, healthcare has become more expensive and less accessible to many, especially to those who are not financially adept. Seeing the need for preserving health in an affordable and accessible way, Hearty Bread in Quezon City made a way to easily promote a healthy diet not only to patients but also to people on a strict diet.
Established in 2018, they started as a bread supplier for several hospitals formulating bread that cater mainly to in-patients who suffer from diabetes, renal failure, fatty liver, and cancer.
Now, Hearty Bread offers gluten-free, sugar-free, butter-based, and wallet-friendly products such as almond loaf, probiotic loaf, fruit loaf, and other specialties.
Among their bread selection is Almond Loaves, a line of low-carb and sugar-free bread made from pure raw almonds. These loaves do not have any preservatives and are free from margarine.
Included in this variant is the Charcoal Cheesy Almond Loaf (Php 250). At first sight, its black color may seem off-putting due to the activated charcoal ingredient but this soft and airy bread is actually a healthy and cheesy delight.

Charcoal Almond Loaf Activated Charcoal is historically part of 'Universal Antidote'. This is because of its adsorbent properties (ability of substance to attach to the surface only contrary to Absorption wherein materials enter the interparticular spaces) Activated Charcoal is known medically to treat gastric poisoning and adsorbs fat globules. #GoGlutenFreePH #HeartyBreadPH #HealthiestBreadPH
