Keyt- what is diabetic bread. My husband is diabetic, got real bad trouble with his legs and MRSA- and eats bread all the time. Ive never heard of diabetic bread. How does one go about getting it- and what makes it different than regular bread?
My mom is allergic to gluten and also a diabetic- but she loves her bread. Gluten-free bread is just nasty, so maybe this is something that she could use.
There are all kinds of diabetic breads. We get it at either the Aunt Millie's bread outlet or free at a nursing home. We get triple grain, 12 grain, fiber for life, crunchy oat, oatmeal, sandwich thins,etc. They have a LOT less sugar and carbs and more fiber. They're actually really good, I was surprised. I got the idea from an amish man who gets it for his pigs, chickens and ducks.
See if you have a bread outlet nearby. They can only keep bread on the shelf for so long then they sell it very cheap. We usually buy a 55 gallon drum for $5 and it's still fresh! There is also a large nursing home that gives away literally dozens of loaves of the same bread every Friday. Not sure where they get it from. I then take 3 or 4 loaves and toast them in the oven on large cookie sheets, tear up the pieces and throw it in a trash bucket with a black trash bag in it and cover it up.
Ezekiel bread is good too. That's usually found at a health food store.
Oh and I have also seen gluten free breads at the outlet too! All kinds of them. I have also seen gluten free bread and all the breads I've mentioned above and mixes at walmart. In fact walmart has their own brand of diabetic type breads too!
