Welcome! Our bagels are made the old fashioned way—kettle cooked— then baked to perfection. Our bialys, are SUGAR-FREE made on yeast rolls and are baked. Instead of a hole in the middle they are filled with moist onion and poppy seeds.

Whichever you choose, you won’t be disappointed!

What is a Bialy?

Bialys are a part of the bagel family but are quite different from the well-known bagel. While the typical American bagel is a dense, almost spherical roll covered in salt and occasionally filled with some sort of sweet filling, bialys have a much different shape and a very different taste. They’re almost like two triangular pieces of bread stuck together with an onion filling.

Additionally, whereas traditional bagels are often topped with sesame seeds or poppy seeds as part of their primary flavoring, bialys usually have no special toppings at all—just some coarse salt on the exterior to add a bit of zing to their natural sweetness.

What is a Bialy?

A bialy is a small, round roll that comes from several different cultures in Europe, with the primary difference being the toppings. Some bialys are topped with poppy seeds, some with sesame seeds, and some even with caraway seeds. The one thing that is true of all bialys is that they all have a savory onion filling baked into them, and they’re all baked rather than boiled like traditional bagels.

The result is a denser, sweeter, and more savory taste than the well-known New York bagel. The primary difference between bialys and bagels is the shape. Bialys are a round roll, while bagels are a ring. Traditional bagels are usually topped with salt, sesame seeds, or poppy seeds. Bialys have a sweet onion flavor and are usually topped with just coarse salt.

Why are Bialys Called Bialys?

There are actually several different stories about the etymology of the word bialy. The most obvious explanation is that the name comes from the city Bielsko-Biala, which is in modern-day Poland and has a long history of baking savory rolls. However, there is also a story that people called them “bialys” because they were baked in an oven called a “bialy” or “bielitza” in Russian.

And, another tale holds that the bialy’s name comes from the German word “backen” which means “to bake.” In reality, the name almost certainly comes from the fact that the bialy is baked in an oven instead of being boiled like a bagel. And in modern America, the word “bialy” has come to be used as a general term for any roll with a baked-in filling.

How are Bialys Made?

Like any other kind of baked good, bialys have a recipe that’s designed to give them the same texture every time, regardless of who’s making them or what kind of oven they’re using. Like most baked goods, the recipe for bialys starts with a sponge (or, in bakers’ jargon, a “sponge”).

The “sponge” is basically just a bowl full of bread dough that has been allowed to rise slightly before being kneaded down and put in the fridge. After a few hours of chilling, the dough is removed from the refrigerator, formed into bialys, and baked.

The Ingredients in a Classic Bialy

Bialys are primarily a bread roll, which makes them very different from bagels. The difference is that bagels are boiled in water before being baked in the oven, while bialys are baked from scratch in the oven from the moment they’re made.

This shift in cooking methods also changes the flavor of the two pieces of bread, with bialys usually having a very sweet taste and a spongy texture. Bialys are almost always baked with a generous amount of onion inside. The sweetness of the onion offsets the denser texture of the bread, which is made even heavier by adding coarse salt on the outside of the baked goods. You can add any toppings you like, but the classic bialy is made with just onion, salt, and bread.

Variations on a Theme: Other Types of Bialys

As we mentioned earlier, there are several different types of bialys, with the primary difference being the kind of toppings baked into the bread. One of the most common types of bialys is the “poppy seed bialy,” a roll with many poppy seeds baked inside. Another common type is a “sesame seed bialy,” which has a smaller amount of sesame seeds baked inside. And finally there is the “caraway seed bialy,” which has large amounts of caraway seeds baked inside and no onion. Although you’re unlikely to find a “classic” bialy baked with any other toppings than those listed above, you can order any of these different types of bialy at just about any bagel shop in America.

Conclusion

Bialys are a type of baked, round, savory bread with a soft texture. The word “bialy” probably comes from the Russian word “bialy” or “bielitza,” which means “oven.” Bialys are usually smaller than bagels and are usually topped with coarse salt. They are sweeter than bagels and have a spongy texture. Bialys are usually filled with onion and sometimes poppy seeds, sesame seeds, or caraway seeds. Bialys are a delicious and different baked good that you can eat any time of the day. They are often eaten with coffee or tea, and they also make great snacks and appetizers. Bialys are an excellent choice for breakfast or brunch, but they are also good for dessert or a nice cup of tea.

Healthy Bagels


How Our Kettle Cooked Bagels are Made!


Assorted BagelsContinuing on our binge of healthy items at the bagel store, we have so spoken about eating healthy foods and what healthy foods are available at the bagel store, but we have not touched specifically on healthy bagels! That’s right. Healthy bagels!

This article describes how bagels fit into a healthy diet and gives tips on how you can maximize their nutritional value. Here is everything you need to know about bagels, including what people say about incorporating them into a nutritional diet. Knead the dough, form a circle with a hole in the middle, then cook and bake the bagels.

The nutritional content of bagels can vary widely, with countless varieties made from an assortment of ingredients. In general, bagels are made from whole foods which are healthy in their own right. The simplest bagel is made from a mixture of refined wheat flour, salt, water, and yeast.

Bagels can be healthier than breakfast pastries, such as croissants and donuts because they contain less fat. The exact nutritional value of a bagel depends on the ingredients and toppings used. While its value can vary depending on the variety, bagels are a good source of energy and carbohydrates as well as small to medium amounts of protein.

wholewheat_bagelsWhole grain bagels contain more vitamins, minerals, and fiber than regular bagels. Bagels that are billed as wholemeal are made from 100 percent wholemeal flour, but you can also eat standard bagels made from processed flour. However, do not assume that they always contain whole grains.

When you buy bagels, it is best to choose from the whole food options: flour, yeast, salt, barley malt, and eggs. Given all these options, it can be difficult to decide which bagels to buy if you want to eat healthily.

Eating Healthy at Cino’s Bagels

Fruits and Vegetables
Eat Healthy

No way you say? At a bagel store? Because you immediately become emersed in the thought of bagels and the calories that accompany them but did you ever think about the food items you can eat that are low on calories and also healthy for your body and brain? With over 30 years of baking experience, let’s see what healthy treats Cinos can do for you!

Yogurt Parfait

Packed with protein, fiber, calcium, iron, and vitamin C, how can you go wrong? This tasty breakfast (also as a snack) contains blueberries, strawberries, granola, and of course yogurt.

OK, we know. Most of these parfaits do have some sugar content, but if you are not that concerned about your weight and even if you are, the calorie content is not that much to really be concerned about, and in general, the health benefits can outweigh the negative; however, it really is up to you – the individual to make the final decision.

Let’s start with some blueberries and strawberries (nutrients discussed in the Fresh Fruits section) for your parfait and a little granola to the top.

What is Granola?

Granola is a very high fiber filling food. It can fill your stomach so you don’t feel hungry for more calorie-ridden snacks. This is referred to as satiation. Granola contains oats and whole grains, which help you not just maintain weight but are also loaded with antioxidants, proteins, healthy fats, and micronutrients.

 

Improves Blood Pressure
Blood pressure problems? Dig into that granola let your blood run (in a healthy way of course). Granola has been found in studies that it can help with hypertension
.

Lowers Cholesterol
The oats in granola contain beta-glucan, which studies have shown that these oats help to reduce “bad” cholesterol (LDL) levels. This can help in reducing the possibility of heart disease.

Fresh Fruit

You don’t have to have a parfait to enjoy some healthy low-calorie foods. Have a feast on fresh blueberries, strawberries, and bananas along with your wake me up coffee or cappuccino.

Here are the benefits of eating fresh fruit:

This superfood is packed with antioxidants, which is a healthy element that attacks free radicals and free radicals is not something that you want in your body.

Blueberries are known to have one of the highest antioxidant capacities compared to other fruits and vegetables. The benefits of acquiring antioxidants on a daily basis help to lower the risk of heart disease and brain diseases, as well as help people with stress and anxiety.

Strawberries

Fiber is a welcome ingredient here, as well as fighting oxidative stress (the result of free radicals), which, like blueberries help to reduce the risk of illnesses such as heart disease and cancer.

In Closing

These are just a sample of healthy foods Cinos can provide. We didn’t even tell you about our veggie sandwiches. Why not drop by and check it out? And don’t forget to have a cup of our freshly made cappuccino!
