Burgen Bread

Haha!!!!

I got it. The sacred burgen bread. But now I dont know why the hell I brought it lol.

After seeing all the reccomendations on this forum, I hastily made my purchase, without taking the time to reasearch, and fully understand the nutritional values.

My main points are the two main additional ingreients.

Linseeds arent digested by the body, so their presence is for flavour or just a selling point?

And, Soya? I thought the health benefits of this were minimal and more of a commercial gimmick/selling point?

Can anyone answer these points, and also further my knowledge of this product?

Doesnt taste too bad though.

    If you chew the bread then the seeds will be crushed mate- i actually make an effort to chew the bread more than i normally would for this reason lol.

    There is an argument about the benefits of soya in the diet- but as far as i know it's fine- and definitely won't do any harm!

    Burgen is a good source of soluble fibre, EFA's, and it's pretty much the most unrefined bread you'll find i think. Like you say - it's yummy too

    It's low GI bread, plus nice toasted
    Will never match Warbys Toatsy loaf but it's the next best thing (especially with peanut butter).

    A muscle that's weak in isolation will be weak in integration.

    Plus it's got something like 6g's of protein per slice.

    A helpfull way of hitting your protein goal each day. Realising this has helped me hit my breakfast protein quota without consuming tons of eggs.

    in the context of a typical bb diet
    focusing on getting your pro from a variety of sources
    shouldn't be a need to worry about a lack of a particular AA

    personally don't like the texture

    GM - have it with other food sources to make it a complete protein source, like peanut butter/meat/fish etc

    boom

    So having with my eggs, as a I do, makes it a complete protein source?

    I dont get this complete and incomplete protein idea. Can someone explain?

    all pros contain all the AAs that cannot be created by the body
    'incomplete' pros are labelled so, as they are low in one or more of the AAs
    but they are also usually high in others

    in the context of a balanced diet
    obtaining your pro from a variety of sources
    you're more than likely to meet your AA needs

    Thanks.

    It's only 12g's a day, so I doubt it makes a difference in that case.
