Step aside Food For Life Brown Rice Bread, I have found a new love, Organic Works Buckwheat Chia Gluten Free Bread!
I picked up this bread when I was ventured over to The Big Carrot a couple weeks ago, although it was pretty pricey, at $7.99, it was worth every penny.
Gluten free breads are usually very dense with not a lot of fluffiness like wheat bread, and mostly always they come frozen, but this bread is different. It has the texture and consistency of a piece of whole wheat bread. The flavour is nutty and it is packed with flax seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds and millet. I have definitely been appreciating every slice, and I froze it so that I could enjoy if for a longer time. I'll take a couple slices out the night before and make a sandwich with it the next day for lunch, or if I'm wanting a slice immediately, I'll just stick it in the microwave on auto-defrost for a few seconds and it comes out tasting chewy and fresh!
The ingredients are as follows: (*Organic ingredients) *light buckwheat, *flax seeds, *sunflower seeds, *millet, *chia seeds, fresh yeast, tapioca starch, *soya flour, *sunflower oil, *cider vinegar, *cane sugar, xanthan gum, sea salt. The bread is vegan, peanut/nut free, and trans fat free. Per slice of bread = 130 calories, 4.5g fat, 4g fiber, 3g sugar, and 5g of protein. Yum, yum, yum!
I'm so happy I found this new brand of gluten free bread, it's always fun to try something new. Although Organic Works has won my stomach over, I will still stay true to Food For Life Brown Rice Bread, as it is much more convenient for me to buy.
