FIeld Roast Celebration Loaf protein content

This loaf ( which I love) indicates a whopping 31 grams of protein per serving. I can's see from the ingredients how this can be so. I don't think they are lying, I am just wondering. Any thoughts?

I love this, by the way.

      Thank you. I bake with vital wheat gluten but had no idea about that.

      1. re: Funkalicious

        Yup. All the field roast "sausages" are also really high in protein.

        1. re: Ttrockwood

          Yes, I noticed that. One small one is more than enough protein for a meal. This can also make the product very useful for people who need to consume more protein and who don't have very big appetites.

      2. Btw if you love this stock up now- it's a seasonal product and will dissapear until next november.

          that is good to know. Thanks, I will.

          Probably if I liked seitan I would have realized the answer to my OP, but I never have .

            Their regular sausages are of course always available- my stubborn omni parents even like those!

            1. re: Ttrockwood

              I should try them. Since we are omnivore we usually eat chicken sausages from a nearby farm, but alternatives are great and most of our friends are veg or vegan or pescatarian.
              Thanks

            And its back in stores now til probably the end of the year....
            Tip: slice, wrap individual slices in saran wrap, stick in a ziplock bag and freeze!

            1. re: Ttrockwood

              Do you roast it before the slicing / wrapping / freezing? And do you thaw before reheating? (I loved the Celebration Field Roast we ended-up serving at Thanksgiving and think I should stock-up before they're gone for the year.)

                Good idea to stock up if you like them, by jan 1st they're gone usually.
                No need to cook before freezing- it already is basically. Just slice and wrap for individual portions.
                Either cook from frozen (will take longer) or thaw first, for a single slice it doesn't make that much of a difference. the oven or a toaster oven while wrapped in foil is probably the best way to go, though i'm sure there's a way to do stovetop too
