I recently switched all my bread to Ezekiel 4:9® Organic Sprouted Whole Grain Bread. At first I was skeptical when I heard sprouted grain, I had no idea what that meant.
Ezekiel bread is a Food for Life brand that offers other products like: breads, english muffins, cereals, pasta, pocket breads, and tortillas. As of right now I have only tried the Ezekiel Organic Sprouted Whole Grain Bread and I do not taste a difference between it and whole wheat bread. I bought the tortilla’s too and after I try those I will let you know what I think.
“Sprouted grain bread has numerous advantages over “enriched” wheat flour breads. Enriched Wheat Flour Breads are made from the endosperm of the wheat kernel (the inside portion), which contains primarily carbohydrates and few vitamins and minerals. Ezekiel 4:9® Organic Sprouted Whole Grain Products have increased vitamin content generated by the sprouting process and contain a superior quality protein that closely parallels the protein found in milk and eggs, containing all 9 essential amino acids. In total, there are 18 amino acids present in this unique bread.”
You can find Ezekiel Products in the freezer section of Whole Foods, freezer section of Trader Joes, on Fresh Direct and other health food stores. It is not too bad price wise its $4.95 each. So if you would like a healthier alternative to your bread I would give this a try. Even though, sprouted grain, sounds funny, there is not a big taste difference. The Nutrition information is below:
