Alvarado Bread

Thanks to Alvarado Bread bakery for sending me samples of their bread. From their website: "Alvarado Street Bakery’s mission is to give superior service in providing the finest quality baked goods to its valued customers nationwide by utilizing a worker owned and managed cooperative business structure and to strive to use whole grain and organic ingredients, wherever possible, to support sustainable agricultural practices and healthy living."

I bought their California Sprouted Complete Protein Bread. It was delicious. One slice has 90 calories, 1/2 gram fat, 15 grams carbs, 2 grams of fiber, 1 gram sugar and 5 grams protein.

Ingredients: Sprouted Organic Whole Wheat Berries, Filtered Water, Wheat Gluten, Honey, 100% Pure Barley Malt, Organic Millet, Organic Oats, Sea Salt, Fresh Yeast, Soy Based Lecithin, Sprouted Organic Corn, Sprouted Lentils, Sprouted Organic Soy Beans, Cultured Wheat.

In addition to complete protein, they also have the following:
