P28 High Protein Bread

The first in a series of P28Foods-related reviews comes my review of P28Foods 'P28 High Protein Bread'.  It should be noted prior to this review that, before tasting and testing the bread, I had not consumed bread or any similar product for approximately 5 months (I cut bread out of my diet in early October of 2016).

As marketed the bread - unlike most other whole wheat breads - contains a whopping 14 grams of protein per serving (with a serving standing at 1 slice). This, compared to the competitors average of approximately 3.5grams per serving, is an incredible force to be reckoned with. 

As aforementioned I haven't consumed bread in quite some time and wasn't too accustomed to the taste a dietary choice that caused my viewpoint that the bread - while good - was somewhat thick and dense to be that of a biased/uninformed reviewer. In order to garner a more accurate and fully encompassed viewpoint I gave some of the bread to others in the fitness world, others who still consumed bread regularly, and was told the following: 

When it comes to taste P28's Protein Bread is absolutely better than most breads on the market, and the amount of protein per slice makes it easy to overlook the few downsides the bread does have. Speaking to the potential downsides, the bread is extremely tough; for example if you wanted to make a quick PB&J sandwich your eating time might not be as quick as you might have intended, eating the bread is a bit more difficult than say your average white bread. That said, protein-wise P28's bread is a significant and sustainable source of protein. Other breads on the market have less than 1/3rd the amount of protein per slice and that makes P28 pretty unbeatable. Long story short, I'd recommend this to anyone looking to keep bread in their diet as well as increase their overall protein intake at the same time. - Logan Gross (@logantgross) 

The P28 website describes the bread as a step up from the norm because, "the body needs more than simple carbs that bulk up most breads and shoot up your glucose level" (P28Foods). P28 goes on to state that, "two slices of P28 Bread gives you 28 grams of high-quality protein. P28 is a source of fiber, and also contains heart-friendly omega-3 fatty acids, and key vitamins and minerals without any cholesterol, saturated fat, or trans fat" (P28Foods).

For all of the aforementioned reasons I would - even as someone who doesn't consume bread on a daily, weekly, or even monthly basis - recommend 'P28 High Protein Bread'!
