Ezekiel Bread Is The Best
Ezekiel brand bread is my favorite bread. It is one of the best made breads available at the grocery store.
Sprouted Grain Bread Not Flour
Ezekiel bread is not made with whole grain flour, but sprouted grains. It is flour-less. It is truly 100% live grain bread and certified organic.
Low Gluten Bread
Ezekiel bread is a great choice for people with mild gluten intolerance. While all wheat has some gluten, the grinding process of making flour creates more. If you can tolerate some gluten you may be able to eat this wheat bread.
Living grains are not ground into flour, but sprouted with warm water to allow the live vitamins and nutrients to become more intense. The sprouting process not only increases vitamins and minerals but also causes a natural change that allows the protein and carbohydrates to be more easily absorbed.
Ezekiel Has Only Good Ingredients
The ingredients list is simple and clean: organic, sprouted wheat, barley, millet, lentils, soybeans, spelt, yeast and sea salt. That is it. No flour, preservatives, or chemicals. Ezekiel bread comes in many flavors: Cinnamon Raisin, Sesame, Sprouted Wheat.
Good Choice For Vegetarians
All of the breads are low glycemic, low carb with only 15 grams of carb per slice. Each slice has 4 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. Due to the variety of sprouted grains in the bread, Ezekiel bread is a complete protein and a terrific choice for everyone especially vegetarians.
Good bread is hard to find
I would prefer a fresh made bread. Unfortunately, you will not find any decent choices of breads at the grocery store other than Ezekiel.
Most of the bread (and other flour based products) in the fresh bread section is a blend of whole grain and white flour. When you do find a 100% whole grain (as listed in the ingredient list), then it often carries high fructose corn syrup, other sugars, chemicals, bread conditioners or hydrogenated fats in the ingredient list. If you can find a good quality bakery in your area, you may be able to find a quality bread made with whole grains and other quality ingredients.
Remember it must say whole or 100% or stone ground in the ingredient list right in front of the grain type.
It is hard to find true whole grain, because the grocery store choices are few and far between and the bakery frequently doesn’t have their ingredient list available.
When buying freshly baked bread ask to see the ingredient list. It is their responsibility to have it for you. If they don’t have it, then don’t by their bread. If you can not find a fresh whole grain flour bread at a bakery near you then try Ezekiel Bread.
It is found in the freezer case of your favorite grocery store or at healthy food stores. Your family deserves the best bread, take the time to find one and stick with it!
