About Adventist Bakery
The Birth of Adventist Bakery
In the early seventies, Mrs Heisler, wife of Penang Adventist Hospital's Business Manager, conducted some vegetarian cooking classes for the public. It was there, for the first time, that she revealed her recipe for 'enriched' wholemeal bread.
Health conscious individuals took an instant liking to the bread and were eager to obtain it on a regular basis. In response to this overwhelming demand, the Penang Adventist Hospital began production of the wholemeal bread on a small scale for patients and staff members. Soon other bakeries in Penang followed suit and the taste buds of Penangites got accustomed to this healthy alternative.
To spread this healthy eating habit, some of the Penang Adventist Hospital's bakers were employed by other bakeries to pass on their knowledge and share the expertise.
In the middle of 1994, a portion of the kitchen was renovated and the offices situated alongside were relocated. This relocation made way for the bakery outlet in Penang Adventist Hospital as it is today.
As part of its health promotion to encourage a shift towards healthy eating habits, the Adventist Bakery has increased its variety of nutritious food and supplies them to other establishments. Its most recent innovation is the recipe for Sprouted Life Grain Breads which have become tremendously popular for their tasty and healthy goodness.
