Nutritional Information

Sweet Potato is nutrient-dense & considered one of the World's Healthiest Foods - A perfect natural ingredient for our Vegbred Seeded Loaf!

As well as tasting great, Sweet Potatoes have the following
dietary attributes:

Antioxidant
Anti-inflammatory
Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal
Healthy blood-sugar regulation

Eventhough Sweet Potates are 'Carbs', the type of Carbohydrate they contain matters as It's important to realise that not all Carbs are equal in how they affect your body.

Sweet Potato is a 'resistant starch' Carb, which means it breaks down slowly in the gut and then slowly releases its energy into your bloodstream without spiking your insulin levels; which is great if you're on a low GI or low carb diet.

It's also high in fibre, which means not only do they fill you up, but they keep you feeling satiated and help manage any sugar-cravings.

This is why our Vegbred is truly amazing. Packed with 50% sweet Potato; it's tasty, versatile and convenient to eat as a main meal or a snack.

Its a plant-based powerhouse!!

“A tasty, versatile bread in which 50% of the ingredients are vegetables is an amazing innovation! Convenient, colourful, tasty, AND with a good source of Vitamin A (from beta-carotene) and natural plant-based fibre. Eating VegBred in place of standard bread may increase your consumption of phytonutrients including beta-carotene and resistant starch.”
