Delicious and crunchy, Hrysafis wheat rusks leave you in no doubt that they are a rare treat: additive-free, they are made on the magical island of Lemnos, north Aegean, from locally produced, wholesome ingredients.
Hrysafis wheat rusks are robustly crunchy, made from the premium wheat and wheat varieties grown on the island of Limnos. They look and taste like quality always should and reflect the care that has gone into their making, care that does credit to the island's own renown.
Since ancient times, Lemnos has been the granary of the Aegean area. Besides, it is said that the island's name comes from the homeric word "leon", which means "sowed field".
Rusks are twice-baked bread and have always been a staple of the Greek diet not only because of their nutritional value and deliciousness but also because no Greek fare is considered complete without them. The main ingredient in the rusks made by Hrysafis is wheat, a key grain in bread-making and, subsequently, rusk-making. Ancient Greek athletes and Roman gladiators attributed a great part of their stamina and strength to wheat rusks. Wheat is a grain that is packed with welcome nutrition. It contains B-Complex vitamins such as folate (folic acid) which helps in the synthesis and repair of our DNA and RNA, and Vitamin B6 that creates disease-fighting antibodies and maintains normal nerve function. Wheat also contributes to the smooth function of our body, to bone regeneration and protection, and regulates our blood sugar levels.
Hrysafis follows a traditional Greek recipe to make its additive-free wheat rusks whose pure, quality ingredients have all been grown on Lemnos. The fertile soil, the nurturing sun, and the life-giving sea of Lemnos welcome you to these little wheat treasures by Hrysafis!
