With 30g of Protein per serving, you can guarantee an increase in your intake of muscle-building nutrients. With the weight at around 850g per pack, this bread is 3 times heavier than normal sliced white bread–so you know it’s packed with even more goodness, including omega 3.
We tried the bread toasted with a fried egg on top, as a tuna sandwich and with a fried breakfast. And although tasty and delicious we noticed a few differences to normal bread. Firstly, you can feel the density of the bread straight away, this isn’t a bad thing at all, it’s just quite noticeable how much firmer this bread is. It’s slightly cakey in texture, and even to look at, yet the taste is far from it. In fact, it has a lot of flavours, more so than that of normal bread. The pleasant nutty flavour and seeds really enhance the taste. Even when toasted the bread sustained its texture and density making a lovely toasty treat. Luckily this bread tastes gorgeous. When first picking up the packet and feeling the weight I assumed it would taste like cardboard and be chewy and horrible. I’m so glad I was mistaken. With slow-release carbohydrates, this high protein bread kept us fuller for much longer than normal bread.
Is It Expensive?
Compared to normal bread, yes. But this isn’t normal bread. as Musclefood state “you wouldn’t compare a chocolate bar with a protein bar”. At £3.50 for an 850g pack, I think you get your money’s worth. Due to DR Zaks high protein bread being such a specialist product, the price tag makes complete sense.
