Dr Zak's high protein bread review

I first heard of Dr Zak's bread quite a while ago, but for whatever reason I never came around to actually buying a loaf (which I regret). They kindly sent me a loaf to try and review, which I appreciate, so here it is!



Bread is one of the most common pieces of food that we eat, but unfortunately most of the bread consumed is unhealthy. White bread is just a huge 'no no', and I always tell my clients and anyone who comes to me for advice, to cut out all 'whites' (bread, pasta, rice etc). Truth be told, all breads aren't that good for you, simply because they are processed (you don't grow a loaf of bread on a tree....). Most breads tend to have high carbs (simple carbs - spike your blood sugar) low protein, low fibre, and a few other bad things chucked in there. I rarely have a sandwich, but I do have things like egg on toast, which obviously requires bread. Up until now I have had 'Burgen' bread, which is probably the best bread out there that I have seen. Per slice it contains 124kcal, 4.4g fat (0.6 sat fat), 12g carbs (2.4g sugars), 4.1g fibre, 7g protein. From the breads I have seen around, that is the best one I have personally found and have eaten.

Then I got to have a taste of Dr Zak's bread.

There have been many traditional foods that have had the 'protein treatment' - pizza bases, flapjacks, cookies, ice cream, and now bread! Here are the stats:

Per slice:

kcal - 150.9
Protein - 15.1g
Carbohydrate - 14.9g
of which sugars - 2.5g
Fat - 2.9g
of which saturates - 0.55g
Fibre - 2.05g

For bread, that is pretty impressive to be honest. I don't think you should be eating bread all the time if you are super keen on getting in great shape, but if you are going to have a meal that has bread (egg on toast for example) then I highly recommend you have Dr Zak's bread. As mentioned, I don't have that much bread, but up until now, when I have had a slice, it has been Burgen, simply because that is the best I have found, but now, it will be Dr Zak's. The high protein content is awesome, it has a low sugar level compared to the carbs, and low fat.

The taste? Well, I like it. It doesn't have a weird flavour to it like some 'healthy breads' out there (bit of sarcasm, some claim to be healthy, but aren't, and also taste horrible). It's very filling, due to the higher amount of protein, and it goes well with foods such as eggs.

Not everyone wants to get into 'compeition ready' shape, some people simply want to lose a few founds but not be ripped, so bread will either be a part of your diet or not. If it is going to be a part of your diet, make sure it's Dr Zak's, because it's raised the bar in terms of bread.

Thank you to Dr Zak's for sending me this, I love it, and will be recommending it to my clients! (if they are bread eaters!)
