The Julian Bakery, Specializing in Organic, Vegan, Low Carb, Gluten Free and Yeast Free Breads-- Product Review

Do you love bread?  If so, have you heard about the Julian Bakery?  If not, you have been missing out.  I recently had the opportunity to try out 4 breads from their product line.  Their bread is amazing!  I couldn't believe that I was full after just one slice.  The Julian Bakery sent me the following breads to sample:  Smart Carb #1, Cinnamon Raisin Smart Carb #2 and their Apple Cinnamon Raisin bread.  Below I am including a description from the Julian Bakery website, as well as my thoughts on each bread.  I am also including a link to each bread, so that you can order for yourself or check the nutritional facts for each bread I sampled. 

Smart Carb #1 ($7.99/loaf):

Rated the Best Low Carb Bread by

If you’re on a low carb diet, looking to maintain your weight or lose extra weight, then this bread is ideal for you. It only has 1 Net Carb per slice!

Our Smart Carb bread was specifically designed to curb your appetite allowing you to take in less calories and carbs making this the perfect low carb diet bread. We have sold millions of loaves of this unique low carb formula making this the # 1 low carb bread in the country. Our Smart Carb bread has sprouted organic grains which increases the fiber and moisture of the bread allowing it to be easily digested. There is no other bread like it on the market. This low carb bread is simply perfect for taking in the proper amount of daily fiber and protein packing a powerful 12g of protein fiber per slice. Smart Carb bread is approved by all low carb diets.
There are many benefits of the fresh ground flaxseed in our bread; it’s high in omega 3s and soluble fiber which helps reduce inflammation in the body, the wheat and oat bran are full of minerals and vitamins, the Inulin from chicory root will help all the carbs move through quickly without absorbing them and it also feeds the friendly flora in the colon as a prebiotic to be actively supporting the immune system, and helps to pass through the carbohydrates without your body digesting them.

Smart Carb bread has wonderful sprouted grains, seeds and beans making it the most nutritious bread for your body. We also added undenatured whey protein isolate that is the fastest absorbing protein along with organic eggs and other proteins that will stabilize your blood sugar.

My Thoughts:

This was by far our family's favorite loaf of bread.  It was great toasted with some peanut butter spread on it.  You could tell why this bread has won the best low-carb bread by  We didn't feel guilty after eating this bread, like we do with other so-called healthy breads on the market.  After one slice both my husband and I were full.  

Cinnamon Raisin Smart Carb #2 ($7.99/loaf):

Julian Bakery’s new and improved Cinnamon Raisin Smart Carb #2 is without a doubt the healthiest and tastiest raisin loaf on the market. This bread is loaded with delectable nutrients and healthy benefits. Smart Carb #2 utilizes freshly sprouted grains to increase nutrient content, and contains a tri-source of protein to pack 14 grams of complete protein in each slice. Certified organic grains paired with unexpected ingredients like millet, flaxseed, and chicory root provide a tremendous amount of fiber, netting only 2 carbohydrates per slice!

My Thoughts:

We are always looking for great tasting breads that packs a lot of fiber and were pleased with the Cinnamon Raisin Smart #2 bread by Julian Bakery.  Again, we tried this bread toasted and sliced right from the loaf, and have to say it tastes much better toasted.  Over the weekend, I used the remaining bread to make a healthy french toast recipe I was eager to try.  It was so delicious!  So flavorful and healthy.  This is definitely another bread we will be buying again and sending as a gift this holiday season.

Apple Cinnamon Raisin Breakfast Bread ($6.99/loaf):

Breakfast Bread – Lots of Fresh Apples – Sweetened with Honey – Fat Free & Delicious. This bread is like an incredible whole grain dessert for anytime you want to treat yourself. Lower in calories than most treats. (1-1/2 lb., Sliced Loaf).

My Thoughts:

With Fall upon us, it is always nice to have baked goods with apples, and we couldn't wait to try this breakfast bread.  You could taste the apples with each bite you took.  Again, be prepared to only be able to eat one slice, as you will get full quickly.  Overall, this was a nice bread to have for breakfast or as dessert.

Wonderful Bread ($6.99):

An Everyday Favorite – 6 Seeds, 6 Whole Grains – High Fiber & Protein. This delicious 6 grain, 6 seeded bread is a light in color, whole grain, fresh ground organic bread that even has fresh ground pinto beans in it for high complete protein, covered in yummy seeds. – 1-1/2 lbs., Sliced Loaf

My Thoughts:

This was my husband's favorite bread.  He couldn't stop eating this bread for breakfasts, and loved how it contained 6 grains.  Each morning, he would get up and drop a slice in the toaster and then spread Nutella on it.  You could tell he was full as he neared the end of the slice, but would finish it.  And, then when he got to work in the AM, he said he was full until lunch time, which usually isn't the case with other quick breakfast breads he has eaten in the past.  Usually he would stop an hour or so into his work day to have a cup of trail mix or nuts, but not when he ate this bread.  So, if you are looking for a hearty bread with 6 grains, you should try this bread from the Julian Bakery today.

With the holidays around the corner, this would make a great gift to give family and friends who live in another state or for those hard to shop for people.  They will enjoy these wonderful and hearty breads from the Julian Bakery.  Or, why not treat yourself and your family to healthy bread!
