meet national nutritional guidelines.
CLEVELAND, OH (January 6, 2013) -- Adding to its expanding line of ground-breaking baked goods, Orlando Baking Company (www.OrlandoBaking.com) has rolled out two more healthy breads bursting with flavor and loaded with nutritional goodness.
"Honey Grain" and "Purple Wheat Raisin Bread," two innovative 100% whole grain breads, complement Orlando Baking Company's existing True Grains product line which features wholesome breads that meet or exceed the Cleveland Clinic's "go! healthy" nutritional guidelines.
True Grains Honey Grain bread contains 24 milligrams of DHA OMEGA 3 per serving. OMEGA 3 is an effective heart nutrient which promotes cardiovascular health while supporting brain and eye development throughout one's lifetime.
True Grains Purple Wheat Raisin Bread is a sweet, nutty tasting low-fat bread that contains antioxidants, the same nutrients that are found in blueberries, which gives the bread a natural purple hue.
All True Grains breads are distinguished by the round green "go! healthy" seal which means the products have been certified by Cleveland Clinic nutrition experts and meet these national nutrition guidelines:
- Minimal Saturated Fat. Less than 4 grams for main dishes; less than 2 grams for side dishes, soups and desserts.
- No Trans Fat.
- Minimal Added Sugars and Syrups. Less than four grams for main dishes and desserts and less than two grams for side dishes and soups.

Orlando introduced its True Grains bread line in 2011 with the rollout of Seed'licious, America's first probiotic bread. Seed'licious is a 100% whole wheat bread textured with flax, sunflower, sesame, chia and millet seeds and baked with wholesome ingredients including fiber, OMEGA 3 and probiotic cultures. The bread has been recognized on the nationally syndicated "Dr. Oz Show" as a nutritional breakthrough in food choices containing probiotics.
Nick Orlando, Vice President at Orlando Baking Company, noted that his company has been focused on offering innovative breads that meet the ever-changing demands of consumers who are increasingly watching what they eat. "Aside from being really flavorful, True Grains breads provide a host of benefits to health-conscious individuals who seek better nutrition and improved lifestyles," he said.
