Manna Organics Bread Review and Giveaway

Picture source


Manna Organics company contacted me a few weeks ago because they wanted to do a giveaway on my blog. They kindly sent me 4 loaves of their artisan, all natural bread to try. I was quite impressed with their tasty, moist, dense and sweet sprouted breads and their pleasantly sour, dense Bavarian sourdough bread.





From left: Cinnamon Date, Fig Fennel Flax, and Carrot Raisin

All of these beautiful sprouted Manna Breads were super moist, dense, rich, sweet and delicious. The dried fruits made these breads quite sweet without added sugars. I would never guess that these breads were made without added sugar, salt, yeast or oil, since they tasted pretty much like sweet cakes. I served them as a breakfast treat and after dinner dessert. The Fig, Fennel and Flax bread had a slight hint of licorice and a pretty, crunchy seeds topping. I liked the addition of poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds for extra health benefits. The Carrot Raisin bread tasted almost like a carrot cake, minus the icing.

There are 9 flavors of sprouted Manna Breads: Banana Walnut Hemp, Carrot Raisin, Cinnamon Date, Fig Fennel Flax, Fruit & Nut, Millet Rice, Multigrain, Sunseeed, Whole Rye – and 3 flavors of Bavarian Sourdough Breads: Bavarian Whole Rye Sourdough, Sunny Sourdough and Multigrain Flax Sourdough.
Frozen Manna Organics breads are sold in most Whole Foods Markets and quality independent health food stores nationwide and in Canada. They are also available online on Manna Organics website.




I enjoyed the Bavarian Style Sourdough very much! That was probably my favorite of all (that and the Carrot Raisin). It reminded me of German Rye bread that I buy at Whole Foods often. The slices are thin, but the density and great taste is just perfect. It only has a few ingredients: Whole rye flour, filtered water, sea salt, caraway seeds, fennel seeds and coriander seeds. Despite the fennel seeds, this bread does not taste like licorice at all which is a big plus.


I made an after Thanksgiving sandwich with this bread, leftover Tofurky roast and cranberry sauce. Yummy!



I enjoyed it toasted with vegan butter and Marmite.


And I enjoyed it with vegan butter and red currant jam.

  75. Mmm This bread sounds so delicious! I don't think I have ever tried it before but would love to try it! The Multigrain Flax Sourdough sounds like it would be right up my alley. Where do you find these in Whole Foods Market? Frozen aisle? I have also posted this link to my blog at http://genkikitty.wordpress.com/.
