View Full Version : Ezekel bread/sprouted grain bread

Anyone know about this stuff? I really love it and have been eating for a while now. It claims to be "living" bread in that it is made with sprouted grains. But is it conisdered raw? I'm guessing that because it's bread it was baked and is therefore not raw...but I've been told by others who love it, that it's raw because it's made with living sprouted grains. :confused:

Not raw. If you were to eat raw for a while and have a piece, you would be able to tell. Ezekiel bread was helpful for me when I was transitioning to raw, but it also got me off of raw when I had one little piece. Little devil.

Hmm, I'm sure other, more knowledgable raw foodists will reply, but just to help out, here's what I have been made aware of from various sources: Though made from sprouted grains (which is supposed to aid in digestion and absorption of nutrients, I believe) Ezekiel bread is not raw. I'm pretty sure it contains some non-raw ingredients, as well as being baked at temps above the critical enzyme destroying temperature. While transitioning, I sometimes eat manna bread (which is delicious). From what I've heard, the company that produces this bread (Nature's Path), attests to the fact that it is baked at so low a temperature, that the inside is completely raw, while the outside crust may not be. I'm pretty sure that strict raw foodists will avoid both manna and ezekiel breads. However, as I can't guarantee 100% accuracy for this info., I cannot wait to hear others' opinions on this as well!

I don't think it's actually raw. Manna bread is closer to being raw, but I'm not sure it's 100%.

(Just joking around with the title here - not meant to offend!)
No, it's definitely NOTraw. Neither manna bread nor ezekial bread are raw.
Nothing you buy that is baked is raw.
If you listen carefully, you can hear the ghosts of the beautiful sprouted live grains that were killed to make it.
Anything can be sprouted and then baked.
Read the label carefully.
There have been many posts here dealing with this. If you want details, you can search here.
You can make raw manna bread in your dehydrator.
Okay, then. Enough said, methinks.
