obviously, all whole grain breads are not identical; nor are all white breads.
You would need to be sure the whole grain stated 100% whole grain or 100% whole wheat to get a good comparison.
Ezekial Bread is not made with flour. I doubt if your family will eat it if they like white bread.....It is not fluffy and white.
Another plus for Ezekiel bread, it has a lower impact on blood sugar levels. That is really a good thing if you have hypoglycemia like I do! Even though the calorie count is a little higher it is more nutritious because it doesn't contain any flour and is loaded with good stuff, including protein - so you get more bang for your caloric buck. You can also get the sprouted grain bagels and muffins. If you have trouble finding it look in the freezer section, since it doesn't keep as well on the shelf - at home I store it in the fridge. And I have no problem at all with my family "stealing" it - they would never pass up their squishy white bread for my yummy, chewy Ezekiel bread, 'cause it just looks too healthy!
Oatmeal bread? I'm intrigued as well.
Tell us more about this "oatmeal bread".

I found "Ezekial" bread at the grocery store, but they only had it in frozen form! I rather have it fresh. Does this exist??
Ezekiel bread is not heavily processed and contains no preservatives. This gives it a much shorter "shelf life" than your typical loaf of white bread. Stores keep it in the freezer simply to preserve its freshness.
We love Ezekiel bread at our house, too. It does only come frozen; I don't think it keeps very long once it's thawed. We also get the Ezekiel sprouted grain english muffins. Low cals, high nutrients and delicious!
Trouble is, we usually shop at Publix and Ezekiel is only found at Kroger in our area.

oatmeal bread? im intrigued! what brand is it and which grocery store did you find this in? thnx!
It is Country Kitchen (not a brand I was familiar with) and we found it at Price Chopper. A couple people I mentioned it to (enthusiastic about my discovery) spoke as if it was a common product so maybe it is other places too.
It is light and a little chewy and has the grains (oatmeal?) in it. I love it.
I meant "Great" not "Grear." Grear Harvest Bread Company closed down b/c it's name made no sense and in its place came "Great Harvest Bread Company."
i buy the mens bread, hemp bread, and healthseed spelt bread from them. they are all my favorite. i also like thier kamut wheat bread, brown rice, and cinnamon raisin. i like the mans bread, healthseed and a few others best, hemp bread is alright.
They are all sourdough starter breads, they have no yeast, and they are hence fermented for days when they rise, this is simalar to sprouted bread in that its very easy to digest. Personally, normal whole wheat bread gives me bloating and pain, whole grain sourdough bread from this company, as well as ezekiel sprouted breads dont give me any problem.
no, the womans bread/etc arnt whole grain breads, they are weird "meals" in a slice bread, i dunno..

The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
