Default flourless bread?

I bought this bread, the ingredients are: sprouted organic whole wheat berries, filtered water, wheat gluten, organic dates, fresh yeast, sea salt, organic raisins, soy lecithin, cultured wheat.

there are no actual pieces of raisins in it, so i figured they used it for color or something. sugars are 2g per 34g slice. 0 fat, 80 cal, 2g fiber.

So, is it the same as regular bread? better for you? worse? would u count it as a grain serving like you would regular bread?

Wheat berries are your carbs so I'd count it like regular bread. I bet the wheat berries are ground. The dates and raisins must be pretty minimal but are high GI.

usually when they use sprouted grains, they muddle them into a paste - I'm not sure if that is what you mean by grinding, Ruth.

I've found that sprouted grain breads fill me up much better than regular whole wheat flour bread. In the past when I've had a slice of toast, I'm hungry again later - with sprouted grain bread, not so much. I do count it as a serving of grain, though.

That is what I meant, Zeff. Thanks for clarifying. Of course they couldn't be ground - it'd sure be a mess!
