Dave’s Killer Bread OR Ezekiel Bread, Which Is Better for You?
Has this happened to you? You got connected with a health and fitness guru and have been following their prescriptions to a better life. They have sold you on the idea of eating only carbohydrates from a good source. One of those good sources came highly recommended and you have been eating Ezekiel Bread for a while now.
You’re at the gym one day, having a great workout and making a new friend. As you chat about your eating habits, this new friend swears by Dave’s Killer Bread. Now you are wondering if perhaps you could make a better choice for your carbohydrate sources by switching to Dave’s Killer Bread. As you ponder this new thought, you hear the voice of your current health and fitness guru in your head speaking to you about how Ezekiel Bread is the only way. What do you do? Well, that is where I am able to help you. I’ve wondered the same thing myself and went about looking into the similarities and differences. I’ve made my choice and you can make yours.
Let’s take a look at what the breads have in common. They both use “all organic whole grain” sources for their ingredients and that is a great thing. They both use sea salt in the bread making process. They both offer several varieties of bread for you to chose from. You know what folks say, “variety” is the spice of life. So both breads bring that spice to you. Both brands make a multi grain bread, a whole wheat bread, and a multi seed bread. Both breads are carried in only certain stores making their availability limited. Many big chain food stores will carry either one or the other brand.
Now let’s take a look at the differences. All breads from Food For Life (manufacturers of Ezekiel Bread) use only sprouted ingredients and no flour of any kind in any bread. Dave’s Killer Breads use either cracked, crushed, cultured or rolled whole grains for their breads. So, which is better? That is debatable. It is believed that sprouted grains are more readily digested by the body. If you do have trouble digesting grains, this may be a slightly better choice for you. Beyond digestion the differences are negligible.
Food For Life offers five varieties of bread: 7 Sprouted Grain, 3 varieties of Ezekiel Sprouted Whole Grain (Flax, Low Sodium, & Sesame), and Sprouted Whole Grain&Seed. Dave’s Killer Bread offers eight varieties of bread: 21 Whole Grain, Good Seed, Power Seed, Blues Bread, Cracked Wheat, Sprouted Wheat, Good Seed Spelt, and Rockin Rye.
All of the five varieties of bread from Food For Life do not use any sugar of any kind. All of the 7 varieties of Dave’s Killer Bread use either organic dried cane syrup or organic cultured wheat (or both) as a natural preservative. For any of Dave’s breads the amount of sugar added averages 4 grams per slice. For those of you cutting carbs to get that ripped body ready for the stage, you may want to choose bread’s from Food For Life exclusively in that 12 week pre show prep time.
All of the five varieties of bread from Food For Life do not use any oil, while three varieties (Cracked Wheat, Blues, & Rockin Rye) of Dave’s Killer Bread do use a small amount of organic expeller-pressed canola oil. This small amount of oil in those two breads add a negligible amount of fat to the bread.
The final difference between the breads is the serving size. All breads from Food For Life have a standard serving size of 1 slice equal to 34 grams. All breads from Dave’s Killer Breads have a standard serving size of 1 slice and the grams vary from 42 grams to 50 grams, with the typical being 45 grams.
With all of that great information at hand which bread are you going to choose? There is one more factor to take a look at and that is the cost to purchase a loaf of bread. On average most stores that carry either of these breads will charge you just under $6.00 for a loaf of bread. That is on the high side as far as breads go.
For me, this is the major factor in my choice. Both bread companies make a comparable good carb source bread. My local Costco store carries a few varieties of Dave’s Killer Bread and because they can make a large bulk purchase they also offer the least expensive pricing for a loaf of bread. On average I pay about $3.75 for a loaf of Dave’s Killer Bread. So for now, I’m a Dave’s Killer Bread fan.

Polysorbate 60 & The Helsinki Formula for Hair Regrowth
The Helsinki Formula was much in the news in the 1980s and 90s: first as a miracle cure for hair loss; and then as the center of a long drawn-out legal battle and media circus. It is a compound whose active ingredient was originally Polysorbate 60 and later Polysorbate 80, ingredients still found in many hair treatment products today.
The Finnish developer, Dr. Ilona Schreck-Purola, basically gave her formulas to any company which wanted them. She accepted stipends if offered; but many manufacturers offered none. You may see the Helsinki Formula laughingly referred to in hair loss forums, but in my opinion, much of the bad press is undeserved. So what was all the fuss about?
Two manufacturers of Helsinki Formula-based hair loss products were hauled into court by the U.S. Postal Service for making unsubstantiated drug claims through the U.S. mail. After years of legal wrangling involving: the two companies; the combined forces of the FTC, the FDA and the U.S. Postal Service (jointly referred to as “the weenies” by one of the defendants); and the U.S. Federal Court system, some of the trial judges had very interesting comments to make.
In reversing a decision against one of the Helsinki Formula manufacturers, Judge Bruce Thompson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada commented, “It’s troublesome that the U.S. Post Office has wasted so much time and taxpayer money on a product that seems to help some people with male pattern baldness alleviate, what they perceive to be a problem”.
Just a year later, Judge Thompson’s ruling was overturned by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. In part, the Court’s opinion read, “The common opinion within the medical establishment is that nothing will grow hair”.
Six years later in 1992, District Judge Richard Gadbois, writing for the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California said, “There is a fair amount of evidence to the effect that perhaps the Helsinki Formula should not be effective, but in large measure the same could be said for Minoxidil (Rogaine) … Who’s to say that a balding gentleman in his middle years who comes forward and testifies fervently that his pate is becoming younger because of the Helsinki Formula is simply deluding himself.”
There were 107 people who wanted to testify that the Helsinki formula worked for them. The prosecution had no witnesses ready to testify that it didn’t.
As for hard evidence, I’ve read in hair loss forums that there have only been two scientific studies of Polysorbate 60 as a treatment for hair loss: the 1974 pro-Polysorbate Schreck-Purola study; and the 1985 con-Polysorbate Groveman et al. study. This is simply not true.
In Judge Gadbois’ Findings of Fact, he cited studies by French physicians which “seemed to support the views of Dr. Purola, and a British photographic study of Helsinki Formula users [that] also suggested its efficacy. The European studies were done by careful and experienced scientists working in good faith.
Dr. Purola herself was a credible witness as to her observations and the work of others in Europe. … Although neither the Finnish, French nor British studies pass muster under state-of-the-art scientific methods now in use, they do establish that The Helsinki Formula most probably works some of the time for a lot of people.”
Of the Groveman study, Judge Gadbois commented, “There are a number of serious defects in that study, not the least of which is that it did not test the precise formula marketed as “The Helsinki Formula” and probably did not involve a sufficient number of subjects.
The study has apparently never been cited in responsible professional literature and was not much enhanced by the testimony of [the prosecution’s expert witness] Dr. Ganiats, who is not a dermatologist and lacked knowledge about many details of the study.” Interestingly Groveman et al. equals “Groveman HD, Ganiats T, and Klauber MR.
Finally, the judge opined, “There can be little doubt that the Upjohn Co. [the manufacturer of Rogaine], a competitor … whose attorneys attended these proceedings assiduously, was a prime mover in the F.T.C. action here.”
I would say the jury is still out on the Helsinki Formula.
Hair Loss Products Which Contain Polysorbate 60 or Polysorbate 80
Polysorbate is a surfactant, Natural Moisturizing Factor, a dispersing agent and an emulsifier. As a surfactant, it is very effective at removing surface oil and debris.
Dr. Schreck-Purola used Polysorbate 60 in her skin cancer study on mice. It is not as widely known that she used Polyusorbate 80 in successful human hair loss studies. She theorized that the surfactant action of Polysorbate cleaned DHT from the hair follicles and prevented more DHT from locking on.
DHT starvation of hair follicles is the leading theory for the cause of pattern baldness.
