I don’t eat a lot of bread, but when I do, you can bet it’s good bread!
Recently, when searching for my old standby Ezekiel in the bread aisle, I was pleasantly sidetracked by a similarly impressive brand, Eureka! bread.
Eureka Bakery touts its products as “organic bread worth its weight in gold”. This stuff is definitely heavy, but it’s worth every last calorie!
I sampled the SAAA-WHEAT flavor, whose enticing packaging promised me, “the perfect wheat bread! Chewy and full of flavor with just the right amount of crunch” guaranteeing when you eat it, you’ll say, “SAAA-WHEAT”!
One slice of SAAA-WHEAT has:
- 130 calories
- 3 g fat
- 170 mg sodium
- 23 g carbohydrate
- 3 g dietary fiber
- 5 g protein
The ingredient list reflects the hearty amount of grains and kernels, including: organic whole wheat flour, water, organic cracked wheat, organic wheat flour, organic cane sugar, organic sunflower kernels, organic wheat gluten, organic oat fiber, yeast, organic canola oil, organic blue cornmeal, organic flaxmeal, organic sunflower seeds, organic molasses, sea salt, cultured organic wheat flour, organic oats, organic black sesame seeds, organic white sesame seeds, organic vinegar, calcium sulfate.
To be honest, that’s a mouthful for an ingredient list – but the majority of those ingredients are sprinkled on top of the hearty bread. The bread itself is made of what bread should be: flour, sugar, yeast, and a little fat.
My current obsession with this bread peaks around lunchtime. California avocados are in peak season now, and nothing is better than a brie-avocado panini made with this great bread…a truly SAAA-WHEAT experience!
