6 great high protein loaves of bread that you can buy

Published by Finn Hayden

If you're wanting to get more protein into your diet, it's easier than ever. Once upon a time, you would have had to supplement with something like protein powder, but nowadays you'll often find extra protein added to everyday foods such as yoghurt and cereal.

Another product like this that we've seen rising in popularity is protein bread. Usually made using seeds and pulses, bread that's high in protein is great for people who want to feel fuller after their lunch, and for vegans or vegetarians who want to get more protein into their diet.

We wanted to round up the best protein bread that we've bought and tried, let's get into it:

Profusion organic rye & flax protein bread

The Profusion brand produces a range of high protein food products, with everything from protein pasta to veggie mince made from fava beans. But it's the protein bread from the Profusion range which we're really smitten with - made using rye and flax, it not only has a lovely nutty flavour which works perfectly with both sweet and savoury toppings, but it also packs a lot of plant protein, with more than 20g of protein per 100g of bread. You'll also notice from the picture that the bread has won a 'great taste' award, so although this bread is healthy, it doesn't compromise on taste. Learn more and buy it here -

Schneider Brot protein bread

This bread doesn't look very fancy, and we'll admit that there is better-tasting bread in this guide. But if you're looking for protein then this bread is perfect - made using a mix of pea protein and wheat protein, this bread contains a whopping 22.5g of protein per 100g. We paired it with just a thin layer of butter and thought it was pretty tasty, albeit pretty filling. It's also available to buy at larger Asda stores, learn more and buy it here -

Warburtons protein thin bagels

Of all the protein bread that we tried for this guide, we thought that the Warburtons protein bagels were definitely the tastiest - made using a blend of pulses including chickpeas and pea protein, we're impressed that they manage to pack a lot of protein without tasting like cardboard. Each bagel contains 8.5g of protein, which is a great amount to get from such a tasty product. Honestly, if you toast one of these bagels and cover it with butter and honey, it tastes just like a normal bagel, but with the added protein boost. Learn more and buy them here -

Dillon Organic keto bread

We bought a loaf of this keto bread from our local Holland and Barrett because we noticed that as well as being low in carbs, it's also high in protein. Per 100g, you'll get 8.6g of protein, which mostly comes from the sunflower seeds and flaxseed that the bread is made from. It tastes good and we love the high protein, low carbohydrates combo.

Warburtons The Big 21

Another great-tasting and high protein bread made by Warburtons is a loaf called The Big 21. It's called The Big 21 because each loaf contains 21 seeds & grains, and this is where the bulk of the protein content comes from. Ingredients like quinoa, pumpkin seeds, and oats all contribute towards the protein content, which is almost 7g of protein per slice. This is really tasty bread and tastes very similar to a normal seeded loaf, learn more and buy it here -
