Q: When I try to place a product in my cart from your online store, it shows that it is back ordered. How long will it take for me to get the bread delivered?
A: Most orders are baked and shipped within 2 days of the order. We bake daily and will likely bake your order the day after we receive it. We like to ship our product on Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays. With UPS Ground, most deliveries are next day and almost all of the US within 3 days. We do not like to ship the bread on Thursdays or Fridays as it may sit at a facility or on a truck for a weekend. We can do overnight shipping. Please feel free to contact the office to check when we would be able to bake and ship your order if you are looking for a more specific answer.
Q: What is the difference between LAWASH and LAVASH bread?
A: Lavash was originally known as an Armenian and Iranian flat, dry, cracked bread. You need to wet the bread by using cheese cloth in order to soften and wrap with it. Lawash flatbread however is a flat, soft, durable product which doesn't require any type of wetting, warming up, or heating. The product simply needs to be at room temperature and it is ready to be wrapped or rolled. Recently, many more bakeries and manufactures are making a soft lavash. In this case, the difference would be the nutritional values (We take pride in trying to provide the healthiest flatbread on the market), the quality of the ingredients, the wrapping and rolling characteristics of the bread, and of course the taste.
Q: What is the difference between a Lawash and tortilla?
A: Tortillas are made with oil, shortening, or lard and tend to have 4 to 8 grams of fat per piece. Lawash has 0.5 grams of fat per piece and that is from the flax seed. Tortillas can have as much as 950 mg of Sodium(salt) per piece. Our 10” Lawash has only 160mg of sodium. Some tortillas are made by sheeting the dough and cutting out circles for the tortilla, the left over sheeted dough is then rerun with the next batch and the process repeats. Lawash is made with a high protein flour that is sheeted; not reprocessed and pressed. This gives our bread a multidirectional grain flow, allowing for the best wrapping characteristics. We do not use any oil, shortening, or lard. It is the oil, shortening, or lard that needs to be heated in a tortilla to prevent cracking or flaking. We have refined this recipe over 30 years. We removed baking powder and baking soda, oils and shortening, and the chemical emulsifier that blends the oil/shortening with the water in the dough. Lawash and tortilla have a different taste as well. Tortillas are mostly used for tacos and burritos. Lawash is best for wraps, rolls, and Panini sandwiches. We bake the healthiest flatbreads with the best wrapping qualities.
Q: What is the shelf life of Lawash flatbread?
A: Lawash flatbread may be frozen up to 6 months, and is good for 30 days at room temperature after defrosted.
Q: What is the best way to thaw frozen Lawash flatbread?
A: The best way to thaw frozen Lawash flatbread is to allow product to thaw at room temperature naturally. Microwaving the bread to defrost it, may cause it to stick together. Thawing in a oven may cause Lawash flatbread to dry out and crack, compromising the integrity of the product.
Q: Is the Lawash bread approved in schools?
A: Currently our Whole Wheat Lawash is approved for any schools and are carried by Universities, community colleges, elementary, middle, and high schools.
Q: Where is the Lawash flatbread located in the grocery store?
A: Lawash flatbread is primarily found in the deli or bakery section, but may also be located in the bread aisle.
Q: How do I store Lawash flatbread?
A: Lawash flatbread can be stored in the freezer for 6 months, or 30 days at room temperature. To prevent drying and cracking of the flatbread, always close the open end of the package. For best results do not refreeze Lawash flatbread.
