French Meadow Bakery Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bagel Review

French Meadow Bakery Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin BagelFrench Meadow Bakery offers a line-up of organic, all-natural products, many of which are yeast-free, vegan, or Kosher Parve. After already trying the French Meadow Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread, I decided to check out the Cinnamon Raisin Bagel, which has more fiber and protein.

They suggest that you freeze their product to keep it fresh longer, which implies that you will need to toast them in order to enjoy them. When toasted, they obtain a crunchy exterior that encases the warm, chewy center. It's a delicious eating experience.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 bagel (99 grams)
Calories: 270
Total Fat: 1.5 grams, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 270 mg, 11%
Carbohydrates: 50 grams
Fiber: 7 grams, 2%
Sugars: 11 gram
Protein: 15 grams

These bagels are a bit different in texture than your average bagel, having a dense nature and chewy texture, enhanced by the multitude of grains that go into each bagel. French Meadow Bakery Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bagel provides 290 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat, no saturated fat, 270 mg of sodium (11% of the daily value), 1.5g of fat (2% of the RDA), 7 grams of fiber (29% of the DV), 11 grams of sugars and 15 grams of protein. The ingredient list is short and to the point, which is always nice to see.

Thanks to the surplus of sprouted grains (wheat berries, barley, millet, lentils, soybeans and spelt berries), this bagel packs a welcomed protein punch. Five hearty bagels will set you back $4.49, which is a bit steep; but I could see paying that from time to time for a delicious and nutritious accompaniment to your meals.

Some other good choices are Olde Hearth Select Health Crunch Bagels, which weighs less (81 grams), but has 8 grams of fiber (34% of the daily value) in addition to 9 grams of protein. Also, Western Bagel: The Alternative Bagel and Kim's Light Bagels weigh in at only 54 grams, making them much smaller - and perhaps, that's about the size you need for a bagel, if it's part of breakfast with fruit and/ or yogurt
