Publix 5 grain Italian bread

Have been experimenting with trying to make an Italian 5 grain bread similiar to Publix Bakery.  Has anyone ever tried and succeeded?

HELP!

Never tried to duplicate that one but, considering a "slice" of bread weighs about 42 grams, and it appears that's what they base their reference to the bread's nutritional value on, my guess is they're using a flour with about 12% protein and fortifying their dough with about 2.5% fat and about 7% sugar.  Those figures should give you a place to start.
