Production and shipment

We start by baking a special type of whole grain bread with organic wheat, organic rye and organic oat, spring water, table salt and our own sourdough. This bread is made completely without any additives. We allow the bread dough to ferment in a special process before it is baked in the oven. This is how the essential ferments for the production of Organic Kanne Bread Drink® develop. When the bread is baked and ready, we add spring water from our own Herbach spring before the mixture is subjected to several months of non-alcoholic fermentation processes. The result is a unique type of bacteria, the lactic acid bacteria (lactobacilli).
The famous medical journalist Professor Hademar Bankhofer has called these the “elite troop of lactic acid bacteria”. In addition, important enzymes and ferments form. When the fermentation process is completed, Organic Kanne Bread Drink® is filtered and bottled. The remaining filtrate is also rich in enzymes and ferments as well as the special lactobacilli (lactic acid bacteria). It is gently dried and ground into a mildly acidic powder that is available as Kanne Enzyme-Fermented Grain®. Kanne Enzyme-Fermented Grain® is similar to our Organic Kanne Bread Drink® and perfectly suited as a food enhancer.

When ready after months of fermentation, Organic Kanne Bread Drink® is tested by our own quality control department and, subsequently, by an independent laboratory. It is then drawn from the gigantic 100,000 litre containers, filtered and pumped through pipes directly to the filling plant for bottling.
Kanne Bread Drink® is now ready for bottling! For this purpose, the empty bottles are driven to the filling plant on pallets, where they are stacked in layers on the conveyor belts of the filling plant using a fully automatic process. These transport the empty bottles to a vacuum filling machine that draws the air out of the bottles and suctions in Organic Kanne Bread Drink®. Right after that, the cap is screwed onto the bottle in hot steam, the bottle is checked and moved to the labeller. The label is glued on, and the typical bow is pasted around the neck before the Organic Kanne Bread Drink® bottles are ready to be put into cartons. These are also set up on the system, packed and closed fully automatically. A conveyor now moves the cartons with the Organic Kanne Bread Drink® bottles to the loader where they are stacked on pallets and leave the plant.
