Nutritional profile of Essene bread

When you google Essene bread there is a huge amount of info promoting the health benefits and nutritional quality of this unique food.

So why is it so good for you?

It is a nutrient dense enzyme rich raw food.

Phytic Acid is a substance that blocks your ability to absorb nutrients from your food. The process of sprouting or germinating the grain removes the Phytic Acid.  This makes the vitamins, minerals and amino acids in our bread more readily available for you to absorb and use.

In other words our bread is higher in nutrients, and lower in anti nutrients.


An enzyme is a type of protein found within a cell. Enzymes create chemical reactions in the body. They actually speed up the rate of a chemical reaction to help support life.

The enzymes in your body help to perform very important tasks. These include building muscle, destroying toxins, and breaking down food particles during digestion.

Cooking foods at high temperatures destroys the enzymes. 

Essene Bread is cooked at low temperature thus preserving important enzymes.


  • It is very low Carb and the Carbs are high quality - not junk Carbs.

  • It is very low Gluten – the grain actually digests up to 47% of it’s own Gluten in the sprouting process, and no Gluten is added.

  • It has a low GI – meaning slow release energy.  It is a good choice for diabetics and many do eat it.

  • We use only non GMO old varieties that have not been gluten boosted.
