I don’t eat a lot of bread, but when I do it is either from a bakery, in a Parisienne cafe, or Food for Life‘s Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Bread in my apartment. When the Food for Life team reached out to me and asked me if I would like to review their new sprouted bread, I jumped a the chance! I typically eat their original Sprouted Grain Bread (orange bag if you are familiar with the brand) and was excited to try their new Sprouted Flax Bread.
Here is a little about the new addition to the Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Bread line:
-Made with freshly-sprouted, certified organic live grains
-Provides an excellent source of Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids (EFAs), the “good” fats that are vital to our health and body function, the new spin on their classic loaf is a powerhouse of nutrition—truly “bread” to perfection
-Through an exclusive sprouting process, enzymes are activated and cause the grains to become living and nutrient-dense while enhancing digestibility
-The combination of the 6 grains, legumes, and seeds described in the Holy Scripture verse Ezekiel 4:9 creates a complete protein containing all 9 essential amino acids (similar to milk and eggs), while decreasing the calories and carbohydrates found in the original grain
-Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Flax Bread is 100% flourless and free of conditioners, additives, artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives
-Made with filtered water and no added fat and is low-glycemic, diabetic-friendly, pH-balanced and kosher-certified
-Each slice of contains 90mg of Omega 3, 5g of protein, 4g of dietary fiber and 18 amino acids from vegetable sources
If you are scared by the Flax in the name, don’t be. Yes, the bread has a minimal flax seed taste, but it is not overpowering.
