good for you breads
has anyone tried the sprouted grain breads? They are spendy and I want to be sure they are worth it.
"Worth it" is a hard call. They taste.....healthy. Kind of dense and grainy, lots of that deep whole grain flavor.
The Ezekial bread is my favorite from the couple i have tried. Be sure to toast it! Not toasted is not good..
I'm not convinced they are nutritiously superior to a good loaf of multi grain artisinal bread from a good bakery.... The sprouting is suppossed to make the nutrients easier to digest among other claims, but i eat plenty of other sprouted legumes and greens and never had an issue digesting breads. But i don't eat much bread anyhow (like, two pcs a week), if you eat a loaf or more a week that would be a pricey habit.
Love Alvarado Street's sourdough sprouted grain bread. Not too "sourdoughy", meaning it doesn't have that tanginess I associate with many sourdough breads. They have a great line up of other sprouted grain breads, too. I don't care for Ezekiel, it's way too dry in my opinion. I also tried a sprouted grain pasta made by a fairly new company called "SmartPasta". It was excellent!
