You’ve probably heard all the rage around Ezekiel bread, or at least seen a friend pull out a sandwich made with the stuff and asked, “What is that?” Then your friend probably said something along the lines of, “Oh this stuff? This stuff is life. It’s made by the Gods” or something like that. People who are familiar with this bread are pretty devoted fans of it. While it may not be as fluffy as some of the sliced bread you like to make sandwiches with, it’s worth giving this grainy stuff a chance because what it lacks in squishy, doughiness it makes up for with incredible nutritional value. It’s not like most other breads that claim to have all sorts of oats and grains—it’s quite an impressive little loaf. Here are reasons to be in love with Ezekiel bread.

It has soybeans and lentils

This sneaky little bread contains soybeans and lentils, which offer fiber, protein, and blood sugar stabilizing benefits. But the best part is, you won’t even notice they’re there from the texture.

No added sugars at all

Ezekiel bread has absolutely no added sugars of any kind. It doesn’t even have things like sugar or agave, which do cause blood sugar spikes, so don’t be fooled by other breads that claim they’re healthy.

It has a lot of protein

One little slice of the stuff has four grams of protein, meaning if you make a sandwich, you can get eight grams of protein.

And it’s a complete protein

Because the bread has the magical combination of legumes with grains, it has all nine amino acids and is a complete protein.

It’s Non-GMO

It’s preservative-free

It helps with nutrient absorption

Sprouted grains help with nutrient absorption, which is great because this bread also has tons of vitamins and minerals that your body will be happy to soak up.

It regulates digestion

Two slices of the bread will give you six grams of fiber, but it also has things like seed and nuts that add nice bulk to your bowel and help regulate digestion.

Gluten-intolerant individuals don’t need to feel left out because there are gluten-free varieties, including English muffins, bread, and tortillas.
