Bakkerij MAMA operates in Zwanenburg, a village in between Haarlem and Amsterdam. When you enter the building you can smell the freshly oven-baked bread. All kinds of bread are made using the six combi steam-ovens. The flour used for these breads come from four different mills in the Netherlands. All home grown! Besides that they only work with biological flour without additives or stabilizers.
Naturally they create their own sourdough which is risen cold and slowly. This effects the taste greatly, but also makes the bread healthier and more nutritious. Moreover, during the baking process a lot of water is used. Most of the time other bakeries only add this at the beginning of the process. By adding all through the baking process the bread stays fresh for a longer period of time, which is hard to achieve otherwise.
