Healthy Foods: Ezekiel Bread

Ezekiel bread is as healthy as a bread gets.  It’s a type of sprouted bread, made from a

variety of whole grains and legumes that have started germinating (sprouting).

Compared to white bread, which is made of refined wheat flour, Ezekiel bread is much

richer in healthy nutrients and fiber. Whereas most types of bread contain added sugar,

Ezekiel bread contains none.  It is also made from organic, sprouted whole grains. The

sprouting process changes the nutrient composition of the grains significantly.

In contrast to most commercial breads, which consist primarily of refined wheat or pulverized whole wheat, Ezekiel bread contains several different types of grains and legumes:

  • 4 types of cereal grains: wheat, millet, barley and spelt
  • 2 types of legumes: soybeans and lentils

All the grains and legumes are organically grown and allowed to sprout before they are processed, mixed together and baked to produce the final product.

Wheat, barley and spelt all contain gluten, so Ezekiel bread is out of the question for people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.
