Have you ever had any of Food for Life’s products? I absolutely love their gluten-free Brown Rice English Muffins. When they contacted me about trying out their new line of Gluten-Free Sprouted for Life breads, I was ecstatic. Their Sprouted for Life bread line is available in four varieties; Original 3 Seed, Flax, Almond and Cinnamon Raisin.
The Sprouted for Life breads are the first of their kind in the gluten-free market made from incredibly nutritious superseeds and grains like sprouted Quinoa, Millet and Chia. Food for Life didn’t follow the path of other gluten-free breads and replace the nutrients with alternative ingredients to mimic “gluten” in their bread. They spent countless hours in research and development to bring a bread to market that has your health in mind. The Sprouted for Life line uses sprouted ingredients to maximize nutrition and digestibility.
I have tried each of the new breads and gave a detailed review of each below. I found that each loaf of bread delivered on consistency with density (no holes), no falling apart out of the package and size. The four varieties offer four distinct flavors for a variety of spreads, whether it’s a piece of Cinnamon Raisin toast with breakfast or a turkey swiss on toasted Original 3 Seed. What else is great about the new gluten-free Sprouted for Life breads? They are all vegan! No eggs are used to make any of the breads.
Sprouted for Life Gluten-Free Bread: Flax
The Flax bread has a strong flax flavor and you can actually see the flax seeds in the bread. The bread just by itself is a little dry, but holds together and has a nice familiar soft chewy texture. It did have a subtle after taste of flax, but nothing that would ruin your meal. I definitely preferred the bread toasted. I smeared a bit of butter on it and it had a wonderful toasted flax seed taste. I think it would be perfect (toasted) for any kind of sandwich or a smear of jam, jelly, any nut butter or even cream cheese.
Sprouted for Life Gluten-Free Bread: Original 3 Seed
The Original 3 Seed bread is my favorite out of the four. Like with the Flax bread, I prefer the Original 3 Seed toasted. This bread has a lovely seed taste without any one thing overpowering the other and no after taste. It has a nice delicious balanced taste and a great all around bread.
Sprouted for Life Gluten-Free Bread: Almond
The Almond bread has a different flavor and texture than the Flax and Original 3 Seed. Before toasting, the bread has a subtle, but definite almond flavor. Once toasted, the bread has a lighter almond taste. It’s a nice all around bread too, with no after taste and would go with anything.
Sprouted for Life Gluten-Free Bread: Cinnamon Raisin
Look at all those raisins! This Cinnamon Raisin bread is packed with juicy raisins. As it was toasting, the smell was simply heavenly as baked cinnamon filled the air. This is a well balance cinnamon raisin bread. I really enjoyed the main cinnamon and raisin taste, but was impressed that I could still notice the sprouted ingredients included in the bread. There’s no after taste with bread either, didn’t fall apart and produced the normal amount crumbs any toast would make.
