Are Rhodes products healthy?
Yes, Rhodes frozen dough is made with the highest quality ingredients to our specifications. Since it is frozen, no preservatives are needed or used in any of the dough products (a preservative is used in the Cream Cheese frosting as a mold inhibitor, all other products contain no preservatives). In addition, Rhodes 100% Whole Wheat Texas Rolls and Wheat Bread are high in fiber. All Rhodes products use unbleached, high protein flour.
What is the difference between frozen dough and refrigerated dough?
Flavor: Rhodes bread and rolls are made with only the highest quality ingredients including fresh yeast. Fresh yeast has a slightly sweet, full taste. However, yeast will rise even in refrigeration. Thus, true yeast dough must be solidly frozen until ready to use. Fortunately, freezing not only makes the yeast inactive, but preserves the dough's freshness making it possible for us to leave out preservatives and produce bread that tastes as good as homemade.
Aroma: The yeast and other ingredients in frozen dough create the wonderful aroma. Of course, the cinnamon rolls have their own unique aroma that always draws a crowd.
Texture: Yeast risen dough has the perfect texture that every home baker desires.
Convenience: Using frozen dough saves you the measuring, mixing, kneading and cleanup of "scratch baking", yet you enjoy the quality, flavor and aroma of homemade. Rhodes is homemade without the mess!
