Food for Life Ezekiel Low Sodium Sprouted Wheat Bread

A mixture of sprouted wheat, barley, millet, lentils, soybeans, and spelt in Ezekiel Low Sodium Sprouted Wheat Bread, gives this tasty 80-calorie sandwich bread a wonderfully nutty flavor and a healthy three grams of fiber. Sodium? Zero, nada, zip. That’s because the bread is baked without salt. Sound odd? In Italy’s Umbrian region they’ve been baking bread sans salt, and loving it, since the 1500s. It makes a lot of sense when you consider bread is basically a vehicle for fillings or toppings like butter and jam.
