Here is a little tip...it's in the freezer section..not the bread. Why? It is live grains, they go bad very quickly with no preservatives. I kept mine in the freezer and pulled out what I needed and put in the toaster to thaw it. You can also keep a few pieces in the fridge for a couple of days if you know you are going to eat it quickly. I still have some in my freezer just in case I run out of bread and can't bake.
So what's so great about it? Why is it different from just plain whole wheat that you buy in the bread section?
Ezekiel Bread is made from six organic grains and legumes – whole wheat, malted barley, whole millet, whole barley, whole lentils, whole soybeans, and whole spelt — which are sprouted and then combined together to make a bread.
Not only does the sprouting process create a more easily digested food, but it also creates a whole protein that closely parallels the protein found in milk, eggs and whey. In fact, Food for Life claims that the protein quality is so high, that it’s 84.3% as efficient as the highest recognized source of protein. In all, Ezekiel Bread has 18 amino acids – all from vegetable sources and naturally balanced.
Even better, the ingredient list is short (always a good sign — especially when you are trying to follow the Clean Eating Diet), containing only 10 whole, natural ingredients.
They have made this bread according to the Bible verse, obviously. This is where God gives Ezekiel specific instructions for baking a bread with the right amount of all nutrients that he would need to survive. "Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself. You are to eat it during the 390 days you lie on your side." Ezekiel 4:9. For more information on Food for Life products click here.
It tastes very good and I like it toasted best. You can also bake this bread if you like to bake your own. There here is the recipe for it.
