I’d seen Food for Life breads before, but I always assumed that only the crunchiest granola of hippies bought this bread. It’s organic AND sprouted AND it has a bible verse on it: the trifecta of hippie happiness, right there, folks. But then one day out of
sheer insanity a moment of clarity I decided to give up sugar for a while, and every. single. bread. in the grocery store has some form of sugar (it’s hidden under some other psuedonym, but it’s always there). Not (most of) Food for Life’s breads. Nope. Nada. Sugar free. So I started shelling out the cash for sugar-free organic sprouted breads.
There is no sugar in this bread, but it does contain gluten. In fact, gluten itself is an actual ingredient in this bread. If you are celiac, obviously abstain. I am gluten-sensitive (and allergic to a whole list of things, and trying not to eat popular allergens as well right now), but sprouted grains seem to digest better than regular grains.

My thoughts on the taste of this bread? This particular version is a bit seedy, and I like that from time to time, but I definitely alternate with a few of their other breads. These breads are a bit denser and dryer than most breads, but I like that. They don’t soak up all your toppings and become mush when you’re eating a sandwich. And they make for excellent toasted sandwiches.

Disclaimer: Food for Life sent me 2 loaves of Ezekial 4:9 Flax sprouted bread to try. Opinions are my own. In fact I had been buying Food for Life’s breads for a while since they have no sugar in them.
What kind of bread do you like?
