Ezekiel Tortillas and Bread Quick Facts
Since we’re using sprouted tortillas for our crust, maybe it would help to give you a bit of a background on this ingredient.
As the name implies, this tortilla variety contains sprouted grains. When we talk about “sprouted” this means that the bread has undergone a process that helped release its potent enzymes and nutrients for your body’s health.
To sprout these grains, they are soaked in water, which then causes their green sprout to grow. During this process, the chemicals and enzymes present in the grains help nourish the endosperm and the wheat germ.
As a result, the nutrient value of the grains increases, including a higher amount of vitamin B and C. While whole wheat bread (regular) also contains some of these ingredients, you can certainly get more from sprouted grains.
It is also through sprouting that you allow for the release of anti-nutrients in the grains. These components prevent your body from absorbing nutrients from food. By activating the parts of your body that are responsible for metabolizing the nutrients you obtain, you can live a healthier life.
By eating sprouted bread, you are allowing your body to easily absorb essential minerals including zinc, copper, iron, and magnesium.
Ezekiel Bread as a Complete Protein Source
Unlike other types of bread, Ezekiel tortillas or sprouted bread does not have any flour content. Instead, it’s got legumes and grains. It has a combination of healthy ingredients including organic soybeans, lentils, spelt, millet, wheat, and barley.
No wonder Ezekiel bread is a powerhouse of nutrients!
It is a complete protein, just like milk and eggs - and has all the 9 essential amino acids.
Interestingly, the bread got its name from the Bible verse in Ezekiel 4:9 “Take also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils and millet, and spelt and put them in one vessel….”
This nutritious bread is inspired by God’s own recipe on what makes a truly delicious, healthy, and satisfying bread!
Sprouted Tortillas Vs. Whole Wheat
When it comes to a higher amount of vitamins and minerals, you can get that from eating sprouted bread than your regular flour-based bread.
The germination process that Ezekiel bread goes through makes the vitamins and minerals in this bread more easily available and more readily absorbed by the body.
Although whole wheat bread has protein, fiber, and vitamins, there’s much more that sprouted grains can offer. In fact, a slice of this bread contains 4 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber - and just 80 calories.
With a low-calorie, fiber- and protein-dense bread, you’re definitely getting more from Ezekiel or sprouted tortillas or bread.
And if you use this type of bread in your veggie pizza, toast, and other bread recipes, you are maximizing the health benefits your body receives.
