I was chatting with Mike at the Fit Shop and he was very keen on the protein bread. I wouldn’t call myself keen, but I was definitely intrigued. I’m generally not a member of the “carbs are bad” fan club, and so whole grain bread is a part of my diet. It’s not an enormous part, but it is a part. But I know many people who stay away from bread either for fat loss reasons or because they feel lethargic when they eat bread. And because I love to stand on a soapbox and talk about all things exercise and nutrition, doing a review of this high protein bread for my blog was an obvious next step.
The full review is in the video below, including how it toasts, spreads, texture, and taste.
The product details:
Nutrition per slice:
Fat: 3.5g (0g trans, 0g saturated)
Cost: $8.49 CAD
Where I bought it: www.fitshop.ca
Product website: www.highproteinbread.com
Bottom line: It’s not great, but it’s not horrible. It won’t be something that I buy regularly, but I could see it being a good product for someone who is having a hard time cutting bread out of their diet. Now if you are a lover of great bread, then your taste buds probably won’t approve.
Next product review: Dr. John Berardi’s Precision Nutrition program. I just got my binder yesterday, and am impressed so far. I am particularly excited that it provides opportunity for individualization. But I haven’t started to implement, so take that with a grain of salt. But not too many.

Love your blog! I’ve been eating P28 for the last two months and just love it! I love great bread and once in a while will pick up fresh, crusty baguettes from my local baker.
As far as sliced commercial bread goes for sandwiches/toast, I haven’t had anything close to P28 and the nutritionals blow away everything else away. It also has a much cleaner ingredient label compared to other sliced breads.
The rubbery texture really killed it for me… the taste was ok. But too chewy…
