The nutritional benefits of sprouting are popping up all over the web and in many of the culinary magazines I read. Sprouted breads maximize nutrition and digestibility, and thanks to Food For Life are now available to the gluten free community.
After countless hours of research and development, Food for Life Baking Co. recently launched Sprouted for Life Gluten Free Breads, the first gluten free breads made of sprouted grains such as quinoa, millet and chia. This soft, chewy bread is available in 3 varieties: Original 3 Seed, Flax, Almond and Cinnamon Raisin.
While there are many gluten free breads on the market today, not all are healthy, provide the nutrients we need, made with quality ingredients or have that soft chewy texture of “regular” bread. And, that is really the inspiration behind Food For Life’s Sprouted For Life™ Gluten-Free Breads. Finally, a completely gluten free bread line specifically created with your health in mind. Not only are they gluten free, but they are also vegan, and are made from incredibly nutritious superseeds like sprouted quinoa, sprouted millet and sprouted chia seeds.
All Food For Life’s gluten free products are all natural and made with organic ingredients when possible. There is no artificial anything, no chemicals, no preservatives, no GMOs, no dairy, no casein and no egg.
The texture is great; it reminds me of sandwich bread I ate as a little girl. But the taste can take some getting used to. While I enjoyed the nutty flavor of the almond flavor, the cinnamon raisin left a funny aftertaste in my mouth. When I toasted it and added a little butter, that aftertaste went away a bit. Ff you enjoy an earthy and nutty taste, then you’ll probably like these sprouted grain bread.
Food For Life’s Sprouted for Life Gluten Free Breads are available in Whole Foods Markets, Trader Joe’s, and natural food stores throughout the country. Click here to find a retail location nearest you.
