The parent of SUPERLOAF is Modern Baker, an Oxford company in the forefront of scientific research into the relationship of food to human health.


Modern Baker began when co-founder Melissa Sharp developed cancer at a relatively early age.  She couldn’t help notice how hospital food lacked the right nutrients to support her recovery. Did it have to be like this? She didn’t think so, and took charge of the one part she could personally affect  - her own digestive health.


After her illness receded, Melissa founded Modern Baker with partner Leo.  This turned into a mission to take our staple foods back to how they used to be, then make them better than ever.


Many government grants, academic partners and rigorous tests later, SUPERLOAF is the exact slice of history they set out to achieve - the healthiest bread ever baked.
