ABBOTSFORD, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 10/08/12 -- One Degree Organics sprouted breads, flours, and seeds are now available in the Midwest, including Illinois, Minnesota and Michigan. Ingredients for One Degree Organics products are sourced from family farms committed to sustainable, veganic methods. Using only organic, vegetable matter to cultivate seeds and grains, farmers retain the integrity and nutritional value of non-genetically modified ingredients. Plus, with traceability technology allowing for each ingredient to be tracked to its origin, One Degree Organics ensures that consumers are never more than one degree separated from the growers and their stories.

"We have a passion for informing consumers about not only where their food comes from, but how it can taste and simply be better," said Danny Houghton, vice president of marketing and sales for One Degree Organics. "By expanding our distribution to include the Midwest, we're growing our ability to reach more consumers with our message and with the stories of the family farms dedicated to true, sustainable agricultural methods."

Every Ingredient Has a Story Every One Degree Organics product is equipped with a square QR code that can be scanned with a smartphone for immediate access to a detailed life story of each ingredient. Or, for those without a smartphone but equipped with online access, a package's alphanumeric code may be entered at http://www.onedegreeorganics.com/ingredient_truth to call up the truth behind each ingredient via videos and photo essays.

Made with veganic, sprouted grains, One Degree Organics breads have unique benefits in terms of nutrients, digestibility and flavor. With simple and recognizable ingredients in each loaf, the natural, unadulterated goodness shines through. Leading brands, however, contain unfamiliar additives and enzymes that may not be disclosed, and that diminish nutritional value.
