The "Südtiroler Schüttelbrot" / "Schüttelbrot Alto Adige" is a spare bread made from portions of leavened dough which are shaken, flattened and then cooked before cooking, obtaining a dry, crispy and long-lasting bread.
We find the Südtiroler Schüttelbrot "/" Schüttelbrot Alto Adige "mentioned for the first time in the Tyrolean Order of Bakers of 1610, which however refers to older regulations.
Information on the production of Südtiroler Schüttelbrot "/" Schüttelbrot Alto Adige "bread and on the art of baking in South Tyrol is provided by ancient medieval writings, which indicate that the main feature was already the long shelf life. The "Südtiroler Schüttelbrot" / "Schüttelbrot Alto Adige" was therefore born as a thin, dry bread with low moisture content, crunchy and long-lasting.
Due to the rather harsh and relatively dry climate, as well as the difficulties associated with the various connections and isolation of high mountain rural settlements, in Alto Adige, a particular form of economy based on the creation of food stocks has been established since the early Middle Ages, which had to be used to overcome the most difficult moments of the year. For this reason great importance was given to the art of food preservation, in which particular techniques were developed and perfected such as that of smoking (speck), acidification (sauerkraut, savoy cabbage), brine (pickled meat) and drying (dried fruit, bread).
By producing on your own what you needed to live, you always tried to have sufficient supplies at home so that you could overcome the periods of lean, even prolonged (winter) and, moreover, not to be too busy in the production of basic foods during the periods of more intense work (such as in the time of the harvest, of the mountain pasture etc.). A decisive element was therefore constituted by the stocks of bread, and by the conservation of the bread itself, the main nourishment of the medieval peasant population.
Another characteristic of the bread "Südtiroler Schüttelbrot" / "Schüttelbrot Alto Adige" are the spices used in bread making. Trigonella (Trigonella caerulea) is a fixed element of the old Tyrolean farm gardens, lanice (Pimpinella Anisum L.) and fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) are the most used spices in the preparation of bread in South Tyrol, as well as coriander (Coriandrum sativum ) and, where necessary, wild cumin (Cuminum silvestre), used to flavor bread and added in the past to aid digestion.
The synergy created between the need to enhance local products, and the need in the past to build up food stocks for the winter periods and maximum work commitment has been handed down and transformed until today. In this sense, the bread "Südtiroler Schüttelbrot" /

"Schüttelbrot Alto Adige" represents a fundamental tool of the food and wine of the Province of Bolzano, which is at the basis of South Tyrol's socio-economic development strategy.
