Sourdough bread from Costco that’s tangy, tasty and really reasonably priced!
Today I’m doing a quick review for the Costco Vero Vero Heritage Sourdough bread we picked up during a recent trip to Costco. I’m reviewing this because we really enjoy this bread and the price at Costco is awesome for two large loaves.
Other bread I’ve reviewed from Costco includes the Carbonaut Low Carb Keto Bread and the Little Northern Bakehouse Seeds & Grains Gluten-Free Bread. I’m currently really loving the Costco Kirkland Signature Cheese Buns and we always but the Costco Kirkland Signature Italian Ciabatta Buns.

Yummy! I really enjoy this sourdough bread from Costco. If you’ve never had sourdough bread before it has a signature slightly sour flavor. This Vero Vero bread from Costco isn’t too tangy and also has a bit of a rye flavor.
If you’re curious what makes sourdough bread kind of sour toasting, it’s the acids in the starter that’s used to make the bread.
The bread is soft, thick and chewy and has an airy texture. It resembles white bread but has that amazing tangy sourdough flavor. It toasts up beautifully, becoming golden brown and crisp in about two minutes in the toaster.
For two 670 game loaves of bread I paid $6.99 Canadian. I’ll mention that the slices are quite large! They’re not small slices of bread.
The best before date listed on the sourdough bread from Costco is about eight days from the date we purchased it. I put it in my freezer right away and finds it freezes really well. You can use this bread from Costco for sandwiches or toast, it makes an amazing grilled cheese!
Sourdough bread is not easy to make and seems pretty intimidating for a novice baker. Therefore I prefer to buy my sourdough rather than make my own! Especially when it’s as cheap as the Costco Vero Vero Heritage Sourdough.
Two slices of sourdough is 220 calories, two grams of fat, 40 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, two grams of sugar, seven grams of protein and 430 mg of sodium. I can eat one slice and be satisfied but would use two if I were making a sandwich.
This has all the ingredients I would expect to see in a sourdough bread.
Health Benefits of Sourdough Bread
Sourdough is a healthy alternative to whole wheat or white bread. It has a lower gluten-content and has less of a negative impact on blood sugar levels. It also is more nutritious because of it’s lower phytate content. Phytates basically make it harder for your body to absorb nutrients and white and whole wheat bread have higher levels of phytates. A lot of individuals find sourdough a lot easier to digest as well.
Give it a try!
Some people don’t like the sourness or tang in sourdough bread but if you do, this sourdough from Costco is a great find!
