About Our BreadsOn the surface, altar breads should be a simple product to produce. The simple and obvious requirements are that they be baked of pure flour and water, that it be a stable, dry product, without too little or too much moisture. In reality, careful attention to detail is what determines the final quality of the bread.Too much moisture can result in mold, and too little moisture can result in brittle, fragile bread which will not ship well without crumbs or dust. The breads are manufactured in an ultra clean plant exceeding FDA standards. There are strict controls over packaging room conditions, uniformity of temperature and humidity and other patented controls to maintain quality. The use of patented cutters to ‘seal’ the edges virtually eliminates any fragments. The breads are then hermetically sealed in boxes or the clear resealable containers to maintain their freshness.Communion Altar Breads With ...Superior Quality & FreshnessVirtually No CrumbsDistinctive DesignsUnique PackagingIn Boxes or Clear Resealable ContainersPremium Breads Combined With Premium ServiceCompetitive pricingThese breads carry ecclesiastical approval and find their way to churches throughout the continental United States, Canada, England and Australia.The breads distributed by Parish Crossroads of the highest quality, adhering strictly to the canonical requirements of the Catholic Church that the breads be made from flour and water only, without any additives.
