        Well....

        Cornflour = Not Primal
        Vegetable Oil = Not Primal
        Rice Bran = Not Primal

        If you want to eat it, go ahead. Just understand that it will have to go in your 20% that everyone is so fond of exploiting. I'm not being snarky, I'm just saying, it's not Primal, hence it has to count as an indulgence and indulgences, by definition, are not going to be the healthiest option.

          Doesn't look like real food to me; just processed crap.

            It's like the children's story Mexicali Soup. The egg whites are good though as long as the delicious yolks are being used for something and not wasted.

                          I'd say that it's not fantastic food - all gluten free products like those fall into that category, really - but that it probably won't harm you. If you're sensitive to gluten it'd be a much better choice than a piece of regular bread. I know several people who managed to reap some fairly major benefits by simply ditching gluten but not ditching all grains, and it's hard to argue with real world results.

                            xantham gum isn't that bad for you, better than corn starch for a thickener.

                              What I want to know is why was it called genius bread in the first place?
