My husband has been trying out the keto diet for several months now. He has subscribed to keto meal plans in the Philippines which deliver food daily straight to our door. During the weekends though, we usually dine in restaurants or cook meals at home. It gets difficult to choose where to eat and which recipe to try when considering only keto-friendly food. For pasta and rice, we have miracle noodles and quinoa as good alternative options. For bread, Hearty Bread Philippines supplies gluten-free and low-sugar-free bread nationwide. Here are five reasons to try their products.
5 Reasons to Try Hearty Bread’s Products
1. Hearty Bread provides a good range of bread at reasonable prices that can work for varying diets.
Gluten-free and sugar-free options for sliced bread have improved a lot over the past decade, but sometimes it can be overwhelming to find the best ones to suit your needs, preferences, and budget. For people who can’t tolerate gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley, Hearty Bread is worth a try.
2. Their bread tastes good!
Mostly, I find gluten-free breads denser and drier than regular bread. This is why I prefer toasting gluten-free bread instead of using them for sandwiches. This makes a heart-healthy breakfast that’s nutrition-dense and delicious, too. My husband and brothers-in-law share the loaves of bread with me and they agree that the Banana (Saba) Sourdough Loaf and Cheesy Charcoal Almond Loaf are among the best.
3. They are transparent with their labels.
Their nutrition facts are accessible online and their product packaging includes clear and easy to understand notes with a QR code that links directly to their website. The bread’s label and packaging includes the product information, specification if it’s gluten-free and/or sugar-free, its weight, and serving size. This is especially useful and important for those who are on a strict diet or those who have allergies or sensitivities.
4. You get to taste the real fresh taste of bread without sugar.
Traditional homemade bread does not contain sugar but it’s added to many packaged breads to retain moisture, add softness and a mild sweetness. If you’re having trouble finding a loaf without added sugar or contains little amount of sugar, keep in mind that ingredients are listed by weight. The farther down sugar is listed on the ingredient list, the less the bread will contain.
To provide a healthier alternative, Hearty Bread Philippines offers sugar-free bread that’s wholesome and yummy. Their Ezekiel bread and Cheesy Charcoal bread, which are made out of almond flour, are must-orders. Ezekiel bread is a low glycemic bread without added sugar that’s packed with nutritional value that transforms your living.
5. Sourdough bread is also available!
Sourdough bread is made through a fermentation process that boosts its digestibility, improves the availability of certain nutrients, and lowers its blood sugar effects. It’s a hard crust bread that tastes a bit sour and a bit tangy. You can eat it on its own or try using cubed pieces as stuffing for holiday dishes, making it into a bread bowl for soup or bread crumbs, or using some toast slices in bread pudding. Their moringa sourdough pandesal tastes really nice and I especially like the large size! It can be a staple for breakfast. 🙂 Dip it in coffee or pair with a hot bowl of champorado. The possibilities are endless.
People who are avoiding bread as part of a low-carb or ketogenic (keto) diet will often wonder what they can use to replace it. Bread alternatives from Hearty Bread are here to save the day. Avoiding sugar or gluten shouldn’t mean giving up on bread! The healthful replacements available in their stores help satisfy any craving and now allow people to continue enjoying some of their favorite bread, making it easier to stick to a particular diet. They also have the ability to surprise. Not only does the flavor of the bread shine, but it also combines a great texture and toasts beautifully.
