Many people with diabetes have had to eliminate traditional flour breads and refined starches from their diets because of the way they spike blood sugar. "Diabetic Lifestyles Bread" from Alvarado Street Bakery is a nutritious alternative to traditional flour breads and causes a much slower rise in blood sugar.
Diabetic Lifestyles Bread is made entirely with organic sprouted whole wheat and sweetened only with organic fruit. All of our sprouted wheat breads are certified organic and kosher. This delicious recipe contains no refined sugars, no added oil, and no flour: it is actually flourless!
Most bakers get up in the morning, open up a bag of flour, and make a loaf of bread. At Alvarado Street Bakery, our process is quite different. We take whole, organic wheat berries and soak them in filtered water until they sprout. Once they have begun growing, the excess water is drained off and we grind the living sprouts into dough. What comes out of the grinder is not a dry powder, but a wet, mushy dough that becomes the basis for all of our recipes. We add a little fresh yeast, some sea salt, and a few other ingredients, and there you have it: the ultimate whole grain bread!
