BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Ezekiel bread in the UK
Posted by: Squirrel, Tuesday, October 6, 2009, 2:43am
I'm an O non-secretor. I'm following the BTD, and posting on the BTD forum, not the GTD forum. OK, now I've got that straight ;), can anyone help me with some Ezekiel info?

The Typebase says that O nonnies can have Ezekiel bread but not sprouted wheat bread, or spelt. Ezekiel is, to my knowledge, not available in Britain, but Sunnyvale make several sprouted grain varieties. This is taken from SunnyVale's sprouted bread Product Description:

"Eat Right 4 Your Type: Research in the USA by Dr D'Adamo has shown that to maintain perfect health, we should eat according to our Blood Type, because the different lectins in food react differently in our bodies, that is, your blood type determines which foods are right for you. This research has also shown that though wheat is not suitable for all blood types, Sprouted Wheat on the other hand is suitable for ALL Blood Types."

Interesting. And incorrect, according to Typebase4

This is what Typebase4 says in the Ezekiel bread description:
"Please also note that other commercially produced sprouted breads often contain sprouted wheat and other glutenous flours to make their bread. Read the ingredient labels carefully."

Ezekiel contains sprouted wheat, so the assumption here (yeah, I know, dangerous!) is that the difference between Ezekiel and other sprouted breads is the possibility of flour being added, right? The SunnyVale ingredients state nothing but sprouted grains - no added flour.

Does that mean that I might be OK with SunnyVale bread? I'll be going back to the UK (from Singapore) soon, and I can't imagine what I'll do without my Ezekiel bread!

Please can anyone in the UK share your experiences with this? Any thoughts from anyone else?

The problem with sprouted wheat breads is that some portion of the grain is often unsprouted, an unacceptable amount.

Is that company the one Dr. Tom Greenfield is involved with? If so, I would expect the bread to live up to it's billing.

Yes, the Artisan bread is available to me there. It tastes good, but it's not much like bread - more like a bunch of grains loosely stuck together. It's not easy to slice, and it wouldn't hold up in a toaster. I don't mind it, but DH isn't a fan.  :(

Ezekiel can be stored in the freezer, it's ready-sliced, and it toasts beautifully. AND DH likes it.

I can't find a website for SunnyVale, only for some of the stockists. I have just found an e-mail address for them though, so I'll contact them.

Have you considered making your own flax seed bread - it's very easy to make, toasts and can be sliced and frozen etc...

I just discovered that yesterday actually!  ;D I have some left over, and toast sounds like a perfect tea - thanks for the idea!
