Carb queen here to confess I never pass on the opportunity to review (ahem, eat) a good vegan bread! So when the folks at Eureka Baking Company contacted me to review some of their vegan loaves I was very excited! I was especially excited since I go through at least a loaf of bread a week, and that is generally all by myself! I have sandwiches on a daily basis and love toast any time of day, so a loaf doesn't last long.
I received three different loaves from Eureka Baking Company – Seeds the Day, a wheat bread packed with flax, sunflower, sesame, pumpkin and poppy seeds, Grainiac, a loaf made with 12 different grains, and Saaa-Wheat!, a wheat bread. All of these breads are organic and certified vegan.
The first thing I noticed about all the loaves was the large size. Eureka Baking Company certainly doesn't skimp on slice size! I could easily fit two Tofurky slices with minimal overlap on these babies! Kudos to EBC for keeping their loaves large and in charge!
Second thing I noticed was the density and texture of the bread. The density was really nice and thick, which is excellent as it prevents condiments or other spreads from leaking through. Biting into the bread, the texture was great! It wasn't too soft (none of that sticking to the palate nonsense) and it wasn't too hard or stale (I don't want to name names, but one particular organic kind of bread I buy always tastes slightly dried out and stale). It had a nice chewy bite to it and was just the perfect consistency. And all three varieties were like this, not just one.
Third, and most important thing was the taste! All three loaves had wonderful flavors! My favorite was Seeds the Day, as I got a slight crunch from the seeds baked into the bread as well as those around the crust. The seeds also added a hearty flavor i really enjoyed. I really like Grainiac and Saaa-Wheat! as well, and all three had really yummy wheat and grain flavors.
Ever since first trying these, I've been hooked! I've made all kinds of sandwiches, grilled cheese (vegan, of course), and toast with all the different flavors and all have been excellent. They really have become my go-to bread and I buy mine at Sprouts. I really can't recommend this bread enough - it is vegan, organic, tastes fresh, and is consistently delicious!
