Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Wildgrain a membership?
Wildgrain sourdough breads take 26 hours to make, compared to 20 minutes for a supermarket loaf. It is difficult for an artisan-driven company like ours to source high-quality ingredients, staff our bakeries, and hand-shape each loaf without knowing roughly how many members we need to deliver to each month.
By becoming a member, you’re eating healthier products, supporting a small business and helping reduce food waste.
Why is Wildgrain healthier?
We know that “healthy” is not typically the word that comes to mind when talking about carbs. But at Wildgrain, we approach making food differently.
All of our food is made with clean ingredients that are easy to understand and contain no preservatives. Beyond being clean replacements for your favorite grain carbs, our sourdough bread provides many health benefits. Our fermentation process digests the majority of the gluten; for this reason, some people with gluten sensitivities find that they can digest and enjoy sourdough bread. Sourdough bread also contains lactic acid, which helps your body absorb more nutrients (e.g. calcium, magnesium, and iron) than your body would from non-sourdough bread. Lastly, it contains prebiotics, which keep your gut biome healthy and also increase the bioavailability of nutrients.
Can I adjust my deliveries?
Yes! You change your delivery frequency, skip, or cancel your membership at any time. For example, if you want to get your Wildgrain Box every 2 months instead of monthly, you can do that. You can make these adjustments on your Wildgrain account or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
