"BASE BREAD" is a base food bread product developed as "complete nutrition bread". Contains whole grain flour, soybean flour, chia seeds, etc. It contains 26 kinds of vitamins, minerals, proteins, dietary fiber, etc., and it is stated that "1 meal (2 bags) can take 1/3 of the nutrients required per day".
The taste is divided, but some fans are enthusiastic about eating it every day, and it seems that the expiration date is long. I thought, "Isn't it good as bread for rolling stock in case of a disaster?", So I bought a set of 4 types and 16 bags from Amazon.
BASE BREAD 16 bag set
The contents of the BASE BREAD 16 bag set are 4 bags each of plain, chocolate, maple, and cinnamon. There was a guide on the sales page saying "Best-by date: about 2 weeks after delivery", but it was about 40 days when the product arrived. First of all, you can rest assured that it will be enough for a family of three to eat slowly.
The essential taste depends on individual taste and eating style. I'm familiar with whole-wheat and low-carb bread, so plain was easily accepted. Use it to make sandwiches and burgers for a flavorful finish.
On the other hand, the first impression of the three types of chocolate, maple, and cinnamon is "Isn't it a little good?" The appearance and aroma are gorgeous, but the sweetness is modest with a unique texture that is squishy. But as I eat it, the simple taste becomes strangely addictive. I'm also happy to be able to eat Danish-style bread without feeling guilty! The recommendation is to lightly bake it in a toaster, cut it in half and put cream cheese in between. Combined with coffee, it's a great breakfast. By the way, even in the package, it is recommended to heat it in the microwave for about 20 seconds before eating.
The purchase price (tax included) for the 16-bag set of BASE BREAD on Amazon is 4,080 yen (as of September 2021). It's not a cheap purchase at 255 yen per bag, but I felt it was a reasonable purchase considering its nutritional value and storage stability. Is it good to purchase it regularly for rolling stock and use it as a staple food in the event of a disaster? In addition to mail order, it is also available at FamilyMart and Natural Lawson in the Tokyo metropolitan area, so if you have access to it, it is a good idea to buy one and try it.
