*** Sugar Calorie Disclosure. This bread has 13.3 % of total calories from sugar versus 16.7% for "Dave's 21 Grain & Seed" and tastes fantastic. Ojai Natural Foods goes to great lengths to develop and distribute great tasting food products with the least amount of sugar.
*** Additional Product Disclosures
Shelf Life. Ojai Natural Foods' gluten-free products are formulated with natural ingredients to achieve a relatively long shelf-life and do so without a lot of salt (sodium) or any artificial additives. We use salt in our bread product for flavor and to assists with preservation but limit levels to qualify as low sodium.
Fatty Acids. 30% of the calories from this gluten-free bread are from Fat. This percentage is slightly under the 35% target for fats implied by FDA 2018 nutritional guidelines for macronutrients. Ojai Natural Foods, like many others, believes that many of American's dietary issues with fats stem not so much from the consumption of too much fat, but from the excessive consumption of the wrong types of fats - mainly (a) saturated fats (found mainly in animal fats and dairy) and (b) certain polyunsaturated fatty acids found in a high percentage "modern vegetable oils" that are commonly used because they are cheap and have an unnaturally long shelf life. Many researchers believe there is nothing inherently dangerous about these polyunsaturated fats, provided they are balanced with other types of fatty acids. That is why Buk Gluten-Free Breads are formulated with the following guiding principals - first, to be "Low in Saturated Fats" as such term is used and regulated by the FDA, and second, for the majority of the fats in our products to be a combination of mono-unsaturated and omega-3 fatty acids.
Analysis of Protein. 13.3% of the calories from this gluten-free bread are from Protein (5g per single slice serving). This protein-calorie percentage compares favorably to most gluten wheat-based bread but is twice the protein-calories percentage of Schars' Artisan Baker Multigrain Bread (a very popular GF bread) which has only 7% of its calories coming from protein.
Gluten-Free. Consistent with FDA guidance, our gluten-free products contain less the 10 parts per million of gluten.
FDA Regulated Food Claim. "Good source of" means that a serving will provide 10% or more of the FDA recommended daily amount of the referenced nutrient.
