As a celiac, gluten-free consumer, I am happy to share with you information about the launch of a new product. ‘Munbatim’, an Israeli company that specializes in gluten-free breads is now offering two new packages of assorted flavors.

The term ‘Munbatim’ means ‘sprouted food’. ‘Munbatim’ are an innovative plant-based product made from different combinations of raw materials including quinoa, buckwheat, millet, lentils of various colors, beans, banana, carrots, pumpkin, figs, sweet potatoes, beets, dates and apples. The series has a variety of 14 flavors. All ingredients are pure, no animal ingredients, gluten, additives such as flour, sugar, sweeteners, oils, yeast, flavorings or preservatives. The new product comes in two packs of "mixes" containing a variety of 4 flavors.

In addition, a new design was launched for all the packaging materials, with the words CLEAN LABEL to indicate that the food is based solely on natural and healthy ingredients that are detailed clearly and in full on the packaging. Each package is offered in a different color, indicating the source of ingredients. The consumer can choose the products wisely, considering the raw materials and nutritional values clearly indicated on the packaging, without 'surprises' and unclear terms.
The new product comes in two packs of mixes. The first mix contains the following breads: Quinoa + buckwheat + sweet potato; Buckwheat + date + apple; Quinoa + buckwheat + beet; Buckwheat + dried figs + pumpkin. In the second mix, the flavors include: Orange lentils + beet; Yellow lentils + sweet potatoes; Buckwheat + banana + orange lentils + carrots; Green lentils + beans + millet.
The products are marketed frozen. There is no need for early defrosting as the shelf life in the freezer is 18 months. Before serving, heat according to the instructions. It is recommended to eat the breads in combination with spreads like tahini, hummus, cheese, avocado, pesto, olive oil and more. The company's website offers a variety of great recipes for combining "Munbatim" at every meal.
The products are Kosher Lemehadrin under the supervision of the Chief Rabbinate of Or Akiva.
I don’t mention prices because I can’t keep them updated. The ‘Munbatim’ product can be purchased at supermarkets such as the ‘Shufersal’ chain in the Green complexes, in natural goods stores and in select stores throughout the country. You can also order shipping at the online store in English.
I made myself a special slice in the spirit of Rosh Hashanah. I took the Buckwheat+date+apple bread with a spread of cottage cheese and honey on top with an apple garnish and some apple juice on the side.
