Dave's killer bread

Has anyone else noticed that this brand of bread doesn’t spike bg into the stratosphere like pretty much all others do? Seems to require a lot less insulin than one would think based on its labeling, and not cause difficult to manage spikes near as much as any other kind of commercially available bread that I’ve compared it to. I’m not sure why?

Hi sam. I love this bread. I think because of all the seeds and fiber it slows the absorption of carbs causing less of a spike. It’s the only bread I eat

My favorite is the Thin Sliced “Good Seed” , lower calories and it doesn’t spike my BG. Great bread!

I’ve bought every other kind of whole grain breads loaded with seeds and nuts I have ever seen too and they’re all erratic for me… This stuff has something unique to it it seems… I’ve tried several of their varieties and never have had a hard time with it, where with any other brand it’s a crap shoot

They’re based in Portland Oregon. I’m not sure if they’re entirely nationwide or not but I’ve seen it at grocery stores all up and down the west coast… Looks like Costco carries it nationwide. They have a store locator on their website

What is the name of the bread it sounds great!!

“Dave’s killer bread” is the brand. They have a number of different varieties.

Several easily reachable sources for me. One variety, I could probably manage a slice and a 1/2 for lunch, which is usually my biggest meal of the day. And some variety from my lo-carb pitas would be welcome. Worth experimenting with, for sure…Thanks for the heads’ up…

I didn’t know the story behind the brand until I read this article:

I found this at my local Kroger and after reading your post, decided to try it. I only tried 1/2 of a slice at breakfast this morning with my usual bacon and sausage, but I did fine with it. Thanks for sharing.

I found it at Natural Grocers and Fred Meyer. I bought the PowerSeed and did pretty well with it though as a “breadhead” I missed the yeastiness of a bread made with a pre-ferment (a la Peter Reinhart’s multi-grain or whole wheat recipes). :bread:

Another bread that is very similar is “Eureka Bread”; it also does not cause BG spikes. I buy it at Walmart.
