Bread is a staple of Western diets, but it’s unfortunately not the healthiest food around. Whether you’re buying a sliced loaf at the supermarket or getting a sandwich at the deli, most commercial bread contains loads of sugar and artificial ingredients. Even more expensive and artisanal bread often contains excessive sugars and bleaching agents, but it’s very difficult to remove bread from your diet completely.
Luckily, you don’t have to! Bread can be healthy if you find the right type, and it remains an important part of your diet due to its essential grains, minerals, and even carbohydrates. If you’re looking for a healthier and tastier replacement for sugary white bread or processed wheat bread, look no further than Ezekiel bread!
What is Ezekiel Bread?
Our Ezekiel bread is made from whole grains plus legumes among other seeds.
Is Ezekiel Bread Gluten Free?
Like most bread, Ezekiel bread is not gluten-free. This means that those with celiac disease or other complications should generally avoid Ezekiel bread. While there’s nothing inherently harmful about gluten for most people, it can cause an upset stomach or worse in those with an allergy or intolerance.
Is Ezekiel Bread Unleavened?
While Ezekiel bread does not use baking flour or any artificial ingredients, it is a rising bread which means that it’s not unleavened like pita or certain other types of bread. This doesn’t make it any less healthy or delicious, but some cultures and religions may discourage the consumption of rising bread out of tradition.
