The founder of Healthy Joy Bakes is a third generation baker whose motivation for creating Omega Power Bread was to provide his grandmother, who had diabetes, with a good tasting, low carb, nutritious alternative to regular bread.
The bread has the taste and texture of any whole grain, high fiber bread, but the ingredients are intriguingly simple – ground flax meal, coarse rye meal, wheat gluten, water, yeast and salt. The result is a bread with 78 calories in a 1.4-ounce slice with 2.5 grams of fat (no saturated fat or cholesterol), 5 grams of carb (no sugar and 4 grams of fiber) and 20 milligrams of sodium. Flaxseed is a rich source of omega-3 heart-healthy fats.
The company recommends refrigerating or freezing the bread as it has no preservatives. It is kosher certified (cRc). We enjoyed it toasted.
