Brown (or whole wheat) bread is touted as the healthy choice. Does it deserve its acclaim? You be the judge. The following table compares the nutritional content of a one ounce slice of white bread versus wheat bread.
In our opinion, the meaningful differences lie in the levels of sodium and dietary fiber. The dietary fiber slows digestion down so that the starches convert to blood sugar more slowly. The higher glycemic content of white bread can be mitigated by adding slower-to-digest foods to your meal. Incidentally, unbleached white flour is better for you than bleached. (All of our breads are made with unbleached flour.)
Both white and wheat breads are healthy additions to most diets when eaten in moderation. Click here to see the printable version of this article.
