What Is Ezekiel Bread?

Simply, it’s a bread made from a recipe found in the Bible.

Given to the prophet Ezekiel in the 6th century B.C., the bread was to be made using wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet and spelt. With the exception of water it was to be his only sustenance for 390 days.

This piqued our interest. How could one survive eating nothing but this bread for over a year?

Well, we did a little research and found that the combination of these beans and grains actually give you the nine essential amino acids necessary for your body. There’s even a technical term for it: protein complementation.

You see, by themselves, vegetables and grains are incomplete proteins because they have what’s called limiting amino acids.

Combining two or more vegetable proteins such as beans and grains, legumes and grains or vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds one can get these needed amino acids.

So as it turns out, Ezekiel bread is the perfect little nutritional package; a meal in itself.

With the recognition that the world’s healthiest bread had already been invented, our efforts were directed toward “fine-tuning” the flavor.

Now, after roughly 250 variations, we’re proud to offer 20 Shekels Ezekiel Bread.

It's basically awesomeness in a loaf of bread.
