View Full Version : Manna bread or Ezekiel
03-04-2008, 07:54 PM
So I have addicted bread syndrom, meaning I eat bread all the time, and way too much (whole loaves in one sitting to be exact). I have so far been very fortunate in my giving it up, I have give up all regular bread. However, very occasionally I need something to give me my fix and that is always Ezekiel bread or Manna bread. My question is in your opinion, which one is better for you?

It's made from sprouts. here's a list of ingredients:
Sprouted Organic Whole Wheat Kernels, Filtered Water, Organic Dates (may contain pits), Organic Cinnamon and Organic Oatmeal

Thanks floridapatty. Yeah I know it's made from sprouts but so is Ezekiel bread, the only difference it seems to me is Ezekiel bread has yeast in it which makes it more bread-like. Are you saying that according to you manna bread would be the better choice?

I personally think that Manna Bread would ultimately be the better choice. It is baked at very low temps- that is why it is kinda mushy inside. Plus, it is always better to avoid yeast. Isn't St. Alvarado bread sprouted and also yeast free? You may want to check that out.

Neither is truly raw but Manna is closer to raw. I still give my kids the ezekiel because it's easier to slice, etc. Can you dehydrate some of Alissa's recipes or others yourself? Because a whole loaf of Manna bread is expensive...also incredibly rich since it is so dense. Try sitting, praying/blessing, and eating a chunk super slowly and with a big salad and a glass of water. Easier typed than done for me though :-)

I just recently bought some Manna bread, Rye and Seed.
I really like the taste of both. One very small slice fills me up and stops my bread craving. I will tell you, however, it is not cheap. The loaves are small and the cost is apprx. 3.79 a loaf.
I think since it is so dense, it will last me some time.
I haven't had the other bread, I would think anything with sprouts and yeast, gluten free would be good for you.
Good luck in your quest.

Thanks again for the responses! I too feel like manna bread is probably the better choice. The thing is, I know it fills me but I keep eating it anyway!! Rawnpaw I'll have to check out the bread you mentioned...never heard of it. Clare, I am getting a dehydrator soon but I am not sure if I will have it here where I am or have to wait till I go back to Maryland because the shiping to here is outrageous...so briefly I do not have a dehydrator at this moment.
