About a month ago I was lucky enough to attend Good Food Chicago. Great food brands, lots of samples to try – what’s a better way to spend a Saturday? Manna bread bakery was one of awesome brands at the expo with a lot to offer. I mean A LOT! Try imagining any bread you can possibly imagine: sourdough, gluten free, sprouted, and wheat; bread with walnuts, bananas, sun seeds, figs, fennel and multigrain. I swear my head was spinning – I had to learn more!
MANNA BREAD® is remarkably simple and wholesome, made entirely from sprouted organic grains, seeds, fruits & nuts. It contains no salt, leavening, yeast, oil, or sweeteners. By fully germinating our grains, we convert the starches into easily digested natural complex sugars, similar to those found in fresh fruits, hence the sweetness. The sprouts are ground and hand-shaped into loaves, baked at a low temperature, then packed and frozen to preserve shelf life, without any chemical additives.
What is in this bread?
- Simple recipe - Sprouted organic wheat kernels, filtered water
- High fiber
- Low glycemic index
- 100% sprouted whole grain
Did you see that? I swear it blows my – a very simple recipe nothing extra.
What is not in this bread?
- Added sweeteners
- Artificial ingredients
Would you like to compare it to a loaf of commercially prepared whole wheat bread?
Every bread I tried from Manna bread was simply delicious! I especially enjoyed the breads with nuts and fruits. I actually love toasting and having it with tea. The sweetness of fruits makes it a great desert without the empty calories I would get from a piece of pie. For this occasion I like to keep a loaf in a freezer and when a time comes, just get a slice, toast it Vu à la - sweet tooth special. I think Fruits and Nuts, Fig Fennel Flax, Cinnamon Date or Banana Walnut Sprouted breads would be perfect for the occasion.
It is also great in a salad. Considering how much good stuff is in a slice of sprouted bread, it makes a great addition to any salad. Carrot Raisin, Multigrain, Sun Seed, Whole Rye – either one of these sprouted breads would be great in your salad.
