Ezekiel bread is not gluten free.

Why is it ok for an "O" ?

Gluten is not necessarily an avoid for all O's; but it is an avoid for those with celiac disease.

Since the rating of Ezekiel bread, the manufacturer has added wheat gluten to the ingredients...  It is possible that the rating would not be the same for the current Food for Life, Ezekiel bread in the stores.  The description in Typebase describes the bread as a flourless, sprouted, etc. bread.  With the added gluten, the current bread may well not qualify to be included in the Typebase rating...

The Ezekial bread that I've found in stores is full of avoids for me so I don't eat it.  I have not found any pre-packaged foods that are ok for me, even the freshly made guacamole from Whole Foods that had no listed avoids gave me stomach trouble.  I usually have to make EVERYTHING from scratch if it is to be truly compliant, including my own crackers or flatbreads.  :(  C'est la vie.

The sprouted wheat in Ezekial bread is what makes it neutral for O's.
The sprouting destroys the lectin ( protein ) .

it is the wga that s at stake here

unless you are celiac or gluten intolerant all is well, as long as it really is 100% sprouted
use the search feature for articles on that

The last time I saw the ingredients I think it had an avoid oil in it like safflower so I don't eat it.

I'm so glad you mentioned this, Joe, because I had noticed that I do much better eating rice bread than the old staple (for me), Ezekiel bread.  :o  I think you are right about the rating too. What are these people thinking about anyway? Why do they think people eat it?? Maybe I need to give them a blast!  :D

They must think that more people will buy a loaf that has a consistency of a std. loaf of bread...  They must not realize that the reason they were gaining market due to meeting certain requirements...  

Since we stopped eating it, we realized that DD can't have any gluten, and most grain is out...  So we wouldn't be buying it anymore anyway...

Even before they added the wheat gluten, I had concerns about the bread really having 100% sprouted wheat.  Any time you make a container of sprouts there will always be some that won't sprout.  If I'm doing my own, I can pick out the unsprouted grains or seeds, etc.  I doubt that any large company will be that diligent about a few unsprouted wheat kernels getting into the mix.   :-/

I knew Ezekiel bread was too good to be true.  That stuff makes me want more and more of it.
