Toronto – With 2016 being the International Year of Pulses, Country Harvest (one of Weston Bakeries brands) has become the first national brand to launch what it’s calling a pulse grain bread product, named the Country Harvest Canadian Rustic Bean Bread.

The new loaves are made with a blend of chickpeas, beans, lentils and peas. According to the company, the new Canadian Rustic Bean Bread is an example of delivering on a current health trend and providing Canadians with a new way to enjoy pulses without compromising on taste.

Each slice of the bread contains: 22 grams of whole grains, 6 grams of protein (equivalent to one extra-large poached egg), and 3 grams of fibre. The new Country Harvest bread is available at Loblaws and affiliated grocery stores including No Frills, Real Canadian Superstore, Zehers, Fortinos and Your Independent Grocer, along with Save-On-Foods.
