Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Bread Review


What do you think of when you visualize bread baking? Dusty flour combined with liquids to form a ball of dough? Most bread is baked using flour as the main ingredient. The people at Food for Life have found another way to produce an excellent loaf. Ezekiel 4:9 Bread is flourless because it is made from six sprouted whole grains.

The name of the bread and the types of grains used come from a Bible verse. Ezekiel 4:9 says, “Take also unto thee Wheat, and Barley, and Beans, and Lentils, and Millet, and Spelt, and put them into one vessel and make bread of it.” That’s just what the folks at Food for Life do. The result is a whole grain, certified organic loaf that contains no flour.

Water is added to organic grains until they sprout. Then, the sprouted grains have yeast, sea salt, and wheat gluten added and they are processed into bread. The resulting bread has 80 calories per 34-gram slice. Each slice contains 0.5 grams of fat, 15 grams of carbohydrate, 3 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. This bread contains 18 amino acids. These assemble into protein that is easily used by the body.

But what about the flavor and texture of the bread? Ezekiel 4:9 Breads have a pleasant grainy taste. The slices are stiffer and denser than the usual bread slices. They have a rough grain. The texture took a while for me to get used to, since I am more familiar with lighter and smoother breads.

Ezekiel 4:9 Bread is often found in the freezer of the health food section of grocery stores. A 24-ounce (680 gram) loaf costs around five dollars. At our home we have found the cost outweighed by the nutritional value and taste of the bread. We have several favorite ways to use this bread in our open face and closed face sandwiches.

For breakfast, we have peanut butter toast. Due to the dense nutrition in the Ezekiel 4:9 Bread, we have found that peanut butter toast with fruit and milk can keep us hunger free until lunch. Other nut butters and sunflower seed butter are also great on this toast for breakfast. When we need a breakfast to eat on the run, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or egg sandwich on toast are easy alternatives to a sit-down breakfast.

For lunch, peanut butter and jelly don’t make a soggy mess of this bread. It is also a wonderful choice for a cheese sandwich or any deli meat sandwich. With a juice, some veggies, and fruit, this is a high quality meal that can keep your body humming until quitting time.

Did I mention that this makes an excellent grilled sandwich? The crunch is unbelievable! Grill it in olive oil, butter, or with non-stick cooking spray. When you grill the bread first, you can add tuna salad, egg salad, or a chicken salad. Serve it with soup or vegetables for a complete dinner meal.

The nutrition in Ezekiel 4:9 Bread is first rate. We always have a loaf of it in our refrigerator. It has a delightful grainy taste. The rough texture does take some getting used to, but once you’ve eaten a loaf of this bread, you will keep coming back for more.
