Roman Meal Bread Review and Giveaway



Bread is pretty much a major staple in our daily diets, now contrary to popular belief all bread is not created equal nor does it all taste the same and I’m very picky about what bread I feed my family. I’m always up to trying new breads and when I had the opportunity to review a couple of a varieties of bread from Roman Meal I was rather excited since I had heard a lot of good things about them from friends and family.

About Roman Meal (Taken From Website):

Bread was the Matthaei family's calling when they opened a bakery in Marburg, Germany, in 1686. In 1872, master baker Henry Matthaei moved to Kansas City where he opened a bakery. And, following family tradition, his son, William, also became a master baker.

When the Kansas City bakery merged with others, William struck out on his own—moving to Tacoma, Washington. There he built a bakery that eventually became the most dominant in Southwest Washington.

Around 1912, an ailing physician named Robert Jackson moved from Victoria, British Columbia, to Tacoma to seek medical care. An avid historian, Dr. Jackson was fascinated with accounts of the legions of ancient Rome. He discovered that on a daily ration of two pounds of wheat or rye, these foot soldiers had the strength and stamina to conquer the world. Following the example of these early empire builders, he set out to improve his health by modifying his diet and conditioning his body, so based on the early diet of the Roman legionnaires, he developed Dr. Jackson's Roman Health Meal. It was a hot breakfast cereal of whole grain wheat, rye, bran, and flaxseed.

Not only did it correct his vitamin and mineral deficiency, but the cereal provided an effective prescription for many of his patients. The demand became so great, Dr. Jackson had to set up a small factory in Tacoma just to keep up. In 1927, William Matthaei purchased the Roman Meal Company from Dr. Jackson, keeping its headquarters in Tacoma. Combining his baking skills with Dr. Jackson's formulation, William Matthaei developed Roman Meal bread with its outstanding quality and nutritional value. Since then, people across the nation—and the world—have become familiar with Roman Meal.

Today, the Roman Meal Company is still owned and run by our family. We are actively involved in ensuring that our products maintain the highest standards of quality and nutrition. The appreciation from customers of our strong commitment to family health and well-being has allowed us to retain our business and tradition of quality for almost 100 years. Roman Meal has grown to partner with more than 90 bakeries in the United States and internationally. These partners bake and distribute quality Roman Meal breads locally, assuring you that the product you're purchasing is the freshest possible.

Our Thoughts:

We were sent…well rather we were delivered by the local Roman Meal bread delivery man, who was super friendly and he left us with two loafs of the Roman Meal Sandwich bread and two loafs of Roman Meal SunGrain 100% Whole Wheat and gave me a little piece of knowledge that I’m so glad he told me that I could get the SunGrain 100% Whole Wheat with “Bug’s” WIC.

I have to say that this bread was so fresh and smelled so good (even though the bread bag) that I could not wait to get my hands on it and taste it so me and “Bug” decided to have a quick snack of a slice of the Whole Wheat bread smeared with some creamy peanut butter and I have to say it’s been a long time since I had wheat bread that was so fresh and full of flavor! “Bug” isn’t really a fan of wheat bread, but he now asks for the “brown bread” (wheat bread) for all of his sandwiches and toast which is wonderful! I’ve always only ate wheat bread and sometimes some of it can be pretty stiff but that was so not the case with the Roman Meal wheat bread we were sent.

My husband doesn’t really eat wheat bread so he was the first to try the Sandwich bread that we were given to review and he said that it was some of the best “white” bread he had ever eaten. I just can’t believe that we haven’t given Roman Meal bread a chance until now. I myself have eaten a couple sandwiches out of the sandwich bread and to me the bread just really taste not only fresher but the taste itself is unlike our other brand we usually buy.

Bottom Line:

We are now sold on Roman Meal bread and will be buying it the next trip to the grocery store in which we need bread….and I’m sure that it’s going to be our main bread from now on! I’m loving that I can get the Roman Meal wheat bread on WIC and I love that “Bug” actually eats this wheat bread vs. the other wheat bread we have bought in the past. I’ve noticed that Chad is taking sandwiches for lunch more now since we got the sandwich bread because he said that it’s better than any sandwich that he could go buy in a sandwich store.

Roman Meal Original (including the Sandwich variety) is a sweet and soft blend of wheat flour, whole rye, ground flax seed, and added wheat germ and bran. Each slice boasts 10 grams of whole grains. Roman Meal Sungrain 100% Whole Wheat bread is a good source of fiber and packs at least 24 grams of whole grains. All Roman Meal breads contain whole grains. They also have a natural balance of good fats (mono- and poly-unsaturated) and good (complex) carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates are a good weight management tool because they take longer to digest, so you feel full for a longer period of time. As one of the first companies to come out with a whole grain bread, Roman Meal is a brand that you can trust. You can visit http://www.romanmeal.com/index.aspx, www.facebook.com/RomanMeal, http://twitter.com/Roman_Meal, or http://www.youtube.com/user/RomanMealCompanyfor more information as well.
