Simple Kneads is a nutritional POWERHOUSE! Here’s why…

May 3, 2024

Our true sourdough bread is made with 5 gluten-free ancient “grains” that are rich in vitamins, minerals and packed with good macronutrients! Macronutrients like carbs, fats and proteins are nutrients that you need in a LARGER quantity. Vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber all fall in the category of micronutrients, which are nutrients you need in smaller quantity. Simple Kneads is packed with both!

Quinoa is one of the few plant foods that are a complete protein AND therefore contains 9 of the essential aminos acids you need. In fact, there are 9 amino acids which you can only get through your diet because your body doesn’t make them, and quinoa has all 9!

Buckwheat is considered a SUPERFOOD because it is so rich in vitamins and minerals. In addition, it helps control blood sugar levels and therefore helps manage diabetes.

Millet is a protein rich and believe it or not, is one of the 3 gluten-free ancient “grains” that does not have lectins! Teff and Sorghum are the other two. Lectins cause serious digestive issues for many people. If you fall into this category, you will want to stay clear of lectins as much as possible. Millet improves digestive health because it is rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber. In addition, at Simple Kneads we use organic Proso millet which is known to be safe for those with thyroid issues.

Teff, although the smallest “grain” in the world, packs a nutritious punch! It is very high in protein and amino acids. Protein and amino acids are 2 important building blocks for your tissues. It is also higher in fiber, calcium, and iron than most grains. So, although small, it is a mighty grain!

Sorghum is the other lectin-free ancient grain that we use. It is high in protein, fiber, B vitamins and antioxidants. Antioxidants scavenge free radicals from the cells of your body and therefore can reduce aging.

Our ancient “grains” truly have some unique properties. You can get all these wonderful benefits by incorporating more of them into your diet, or simply by enjoying the nutritional powerhouse that’s packed right into our loaves! And by the way, one slice of Simple Kneads bread contains 3 grams of plant-based protein! With all these benefits, Simple Kneads true sourdough bread is definitely a great option for you and your family!
