They both offer several varieties of bread for you to chose from. You know what folks say "variety" is the spice of life. So both breads bring that spice to you. Both brands make a multi grain bread a whole wheat bread and a multi seed bread. Both breads are carried in only certain stores making their availability limited. Many big chain food stores will carry either one or the other brand. Now let s take a look at the differences. All breads from Food For Life (manufacturers of Ezekiel Bread) use only sprouted ingredients and no flour of any kind in any bread. Dave s Killer Breads use either cracked crushed cultured or rolled whole grains for their breads. So which is better? That is debatable. It is believed that sprouted grains are more readily digested by the body. If you do have trouble digesting grains this may be a slightly better choice for you. Beyond digestion the differences are negligible.
This produces bubbles of carbon dioxide which makes the dough rise. This kind of leavening requires proofing ie a resting time to allow the yeast time to reproduce and consume carbohydrates. Breads leavened with yeast have a distinctive flavour. A sourdough starter is a paste of flour and water containing yeast and lactobacilli which has been obtained from a previous batch of dough. It works in the same way as yeast by creating bubbles but it requires much more proofing time than yeast. Sourdough bread has a sour tangy taste. It is used for rye-based breads where yeast is not really effective in leavening the dough. Chemical leaveners are chemical mixtures that release carbon dioxide or other gases when they react to moisture and heat.
The most popular is baking powder a mixture of a carbonate or bicarbonate (usually sodium bicarbonate) and one or more acid salts. Baking powder works by releasing carbon dioxide gas into the dough when it gets wet creating bubbles that expand the wet mixture. It is used instead of yeast for breads where the flavours of fermentation would be undesirable or where the dough lacks the elastic structure needed to hold gas bubbles for more than a few minutes. Because carbon dioxide is released at a faster rate through the acid-base reaction than through fermentation breads made by chemical leavening are called quick breads. Examples of quick breads include Irish soda bread banana bread pancakes carrot cake and muffins.The big question for diabetics of course is whether the rising method has any effect on the glycemic index (GI) value of the bread.
