Bread is a pretty controversial topic for a number of reasons—one of which is that most commercially available bread on the market these days is highly processed, made with a whole slew of icky ingredients like overly-processed flour. Why is this a problem? Because bread made from processed grains can add a bunch of unnecessary calories to your diet without really lending any benefits, and they may even lead to numerous medical issues.
Bread has been public enemy #1 for years, all thanks to countless research studies that have blamed this kitchen staple for things like raised sugar levels, obesity, and other ailments. But the truth is that all breads are not alike. In fact, a healthy loaf of bread made from clean ingredients—like Uprising Food’s Superfood Bread—may actually be beneficial for your health.
What is Uprising Food’s Superfood Bread, you ask? Only the healthiest bread on the planet! Made with clean superfood ingredients with absolutely no fillers and no added sugar, each serving contains an incredible nine grams of fiber and only two net carbs.

But First, Why Is Protein So Important Anyway?
Despite what many people might think, protein is an essential nutrient for everyone—not just bodybuilders, athletes, and fitness fanatics. Now, that doesn’t mean you need to start chugging protein shakes every day, but getting enough protein is key for optimum health.
Along with carbs and fat, protein is one of the three major nutrients and is made up of amino acids. Think of them as building blocks that can be broken down and re-assembled in different ways. Our bodies can produce most of the amino acids we need to stay healthy, but there are nine that we can’t make—called “essential amino acids”—and must get them through a healthy diet rich in protein.
When we eat protein, our body naturally breaks it down into itty-bitty individual amino acids during digestion and then uses these nutrients to create new proteins where needed. Seeing as protein and amino acids are the main components of our bones, muscles, skin, tissues, and organs, if we don’t eat enough, our body will quickly start to plunder from within—starting with the breakdown of muscle.
But don’t worry—companies like Uprising Food make it easier than ever to get the protein your body needs to function at its best. Just one serving of their mouth-watering Superfood Bread contains six grams of protein. Make a hearty sandwich with two slices of Uprising Food’s bread piled high with sliced turkey breast from the deli, fresh lettuce, and tomato, and just like that—you’ve hit the recommended daily protein target.
Wondering what the benefits are to eating a diet rich in protein? Here are some of them:
Benefit #1: Protein Prolongs Feelings Of Fullness
One of the best benefits of protein is that it promotes the feeling of fullness. This is because the essential nutrient is pretty complex, so it takes the body quite a bit of time to break it down. Therefore, you stay full longer.
Benefit #2: Protein Boosts Metabolism
Along with kicking appetite to the curb, chowing down on protein boosts metabolism. Yup, it’s true. You see, your body uses energy to digest and make use of all the yummy nutrients found in food. This is called the ‘thermic effect of food,’ and protein’s thermic effect is much higher than that of carbs and fat.
So, if you’re in need of a little afternoon pick-me-up, try a healthy protein-rich snack like Uprising Food’s Superfood Chips packed with six grams of protein for sustained energy to get you through the day.
Benefit #3: Protein Supports Strong Muscles
Since protein is the building block of your muscles, eating enough daily will do wonders to help maintain your muscle mass. In addition, if you’re trying to lose a little weight, keeping your protein intake high can also help prevent muscle loss.
Benefit #4: Protein Boosts Mood
The hormones in your brain that regulate mood—like epinephrine and serotonin—are made up of amino acids, which the body gets from—you guessed it—eating protein. In the body, protein and carbs work together in harmony to achieve mood stability.
Plus, when you make protein-rich foods the focal point of your diet, you’re less likely to reach for the sweet stuff. High sugar intake can have a number of horrible adverse effects on all systems of your body, compromising not just your physical but mental health. In fact, you might be surprised to learn (or maybe not) that recent medical research is showing a strong link between sugar consumption and mood disorders. So, if improving your mood is your goal, stay away from sugar and stick with protein.
Benefit #5: Protein Improves Cognitive Function
Believe it or not, protein is vital brain food. Consuming a high-quality protein diet that includes a variety of healthy foods from animal sources provides the building blocks to make hormones involved in energy production, wakefulness, motivation, and optimal cognition. Needless to say, protein has a pretty important role in the body!
High Protein Foods: Bread
Now that you understand the importance of eating a diet rich in protein, let’s talk about food—specifically, high protein bread.
What the heck is high-protein bread, you ask? Simply put, it’s a type of bread that has more protein-packed inside it than your average loaf. High protein bread may also have different ingredients baked into them than normal kinds, just to boost the protein in the bread. For instance, some high-protein bread manufacturers will bake their bread with protein powders such as whey, pea, or soy.
What Does It Taste Like?
Everyone has different tastes. So we suggest trying a few brands to see which one you like best. But we’ll also be honest with you—high protein bread can taste a whole lot like cardboard. Not exactly what you want your sandwich to taste like! And then the high-protein breads that do actually taste somewhat decent are often full of icky additives like sugar, salt, and artificial flavoring to improve the taste. While we can appreciate the effort in trying to make a good-tasting loaf of bread, adding questionable ingredients is definitely not the way to go.
Thankfully, there’s Uprising Food’s Superfood Bread.
