Alvarado Street Bakery Sprouted Wheat Multi-Grain Bread

Alvarado Street Bakery Sprouted Wheat Multi-Grain Bread

Dietary Needs:
Vegan, Dairy Free

Spouted is always better! This bread is healthy because by sprouting the seeds, they become more nutrient dense and less acidic. This bakery uses dates, raisins, molasses or honey to sweeten their products, which is another very good thing in our book. Some of their breads also contain sprouted beans, which allow for more protein and complex carbohydrates for lasting, even energy. Other ingredients include organic sprouted wheat berries, millet, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. We give them 4.5 stars because of the soy lecithin.

Pacific Bakery Spelt Multi-Grain Bread

Pacific Bakery Spelt Multi-Grain Bread

Dietary Needs:
None

This is a yeast-free bread that we love since many of our clients tend to decrease yeast in their diet. Pacific Bakery's slogan is ancient grains for modern times. Ingredients include organically grown whole grain spelt (wheat), organically grown whole grains (millet, barley, oats, brown rice), organically grown sesame seeds, filtered water, sea salt, poppyseeds. Spelt has high water solubility, so the nutrients are easily absorbed by the body. Spelt contains special carbohydrates which are an important factor in blood clotting and stimulating the body's immune system. It is also a superb fiber resource and has large amounts of B-complex vitamins. Total protein content is from 10 to 25% greater than the common varieties of commercial wheat. While this bread is not gluten-free many clients with food sensitivited to gluten do just fine with spelt because it is an ancient grain and of course not genetically modified.

Glutino Gluten Free Breads

Glutino Gluten Free Breads

Dietary Needs:
Gluten Free

Glutino is a gluten-free bread. This is considered a health food brand in conventional grocery stores but not necessarily at a health food. While we are advocates of gluten-free products, the ingredients in this bread are not high quality. It contains canola oil, rice bran, and sugar. Some of our clients report that the flavor of this bread is not great but that Glutino's other products are better.

Food for Life Ezekiel 4:9 Pasta

Dietary Needs:
Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic

All of their products are sprouted, which provides living, nutrient-rich food that the body digests more like a vegetable vs. a carbohydrate. Ezekiel Organic Sprouted Whole Grain Products have increased vitamin content generated by the sprouting process and contain a superior quality protein that closely parallels the protein found in milk and eggs, containing all 9 essential amino acids. Ezekiel products provide smart carbs (complex) to pair with any meal, certainly a Whole Journey favorite.
