Have You Tried Sprouted Bread?

Alvarado Street Bakery Bread Review

February 8, 2016   9 Comments

Alvarado St. Bakery makes sprouted bread and you can find it all over the country.

If it isn’t on the shelf, you can find it in the freezer because it contains no preservatives. I keep it in my freezer to ensure it doesn't grow mold before I eat it all. What makes it special is that it is “flourless” bread. It is made with sprouted wheat berries instead of pulverized wheat berries (AKA flour).

The “sprouted” part means that it is less processed than its “flour” cousin. Honestly, I wouldn’t have known it was made without flour except for the packaging. This bread is more nutritious than most breads on the market as it is packed with seeds. It is hard to find a slice of bread with 5 grams of protein.

Here are the ingredients:

Sprouted Organic Whole Wheat Berries, Organic Cracked Wheat, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Flax Seeds, Soy Based Lecithin, Organic Corn Meal, Cultured Wheat, Organic Millet, Wheat Gluten, Filtered Water, Organic Oats, Organic Rye, Fresh Yeast, Sea Salt, Molasses, Honey

And the nutritional facts:

One slice is 90 calories, 0.5 g fat, 0.0 g saturated fat, 15.0 g carbohydrates, 2 g sugar, 5 g protein, 2 g fiber, 170 mg sodium, 2 SmartPts

It is a bit smaller and less fluffy than other commercial breads but it has a nice crunch when toasted. It doesn’t taste like much, but shouldn’t bread be about what you put on it? Avocado, anyone?

This bread will cost between $4-$5 per loaf depending on where you live (no nutrition doesn’t come cheap) but that will make you savor it!

Find where you can buy it here: Alvarado Street Bakery.

Hi Lisa,
I have not tried this particular brand of sprouted bread, but with one less Smart Point than my usual whole-grain wheat bread, I'm excited to give it a try!

Thanks for all you do! 💕😃

I love Alvarado Street Bread too! Mighty healthy and you're right, it is to be savored at that price. I keep it in the freezer too; one piece toasted with an oz of cheese and fruit makes a filling snack. I must admit tho, occasionally I need a softer bread for a PBJ or grilled cheese. For those times I buy Vermont Bread Company's organic line; not so high in protein but serves my need. I have a personal bread quota--no more than once per day so if I have any at breakfast, that's it, no sandwich that day. Its a silly mind-game but keeps my bread consumption in check. I wish I didn't love bread so much, darn it !

I would not use any other bread. I toast it and make a simple peanut and jelly treat. Also, excellent for french toast.
