You've probably heard of Dave's Killer Bread if you're into healthy foods. In the years that it's been on the market, it's been praised for being a nutritious option for those looking for whole-grain seed bread that's low in fat and sugar. Good Housekeeping named Dave's Killer Bread among the eight healthiest breads you can buy, with it checking off the box for both flavor and nutrition, according to registered dietitians.

One slice of Dave's Killer Bread Organic Powerseed bread contains 4 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein per slice. It also includes heart-healthy ingredients, such as whole wheat, and a blend of nutritious seeds including flax, sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin.

But like most better-for-you loaves on the market, they come at a cost. Per Very Well Fit, Dave's Killer Bread Organic Powerseed bread costs around $8 per loaf compared to other breads on the market, such as Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Bread, which costs around $7 per loaf, and Silver Hills Sprouted Power Wheat Bread, which costs around $6. However, eating healthy doesn't have to be expensive, thanks to the wonderful knock-off brands that exist to copycat big-brand names. If you're looking for a loaf that's similar to Dave's Killer Bread at a fraction of the cost, look no further than Aldi.

How to store sprouted, whole-grain bread

Sprouted, whole-grain options such as Dave's Killer Bread are, without a doubt, better for you than your typical white sandwich bread. Healthline states that sprouted grain bread contains essential nutrients that aren't found in bread that's made with white flour. Plus, it may be easier to digest because it has less gluten.

But when it comes to storing sprouted bread, you're going to want to stash it properly so that it stays fresher for longer. According to Food for Life, the maker of Ezekiel bread, foods that omit preservatives don't have as long of a shelf life compared to foods that do.

Food for Life says that sprouted bread can last in the freezer for up to 12 months, refrigeration for up to 2 weeks, and fresh for up to 5 days. (You can always store part of the loaf in the freezer and part of it in your bread box or on the counter, depending on when you plan to use it.) Whatever brand you choose, be sure to store it properly so you can use every last, wholesome slice.
