Is Bread Healthy?

Posted by in Uncategorized on November 29, 2016 0 comments

One of the most consumed foods in the U.S……Bread!  Now, I’m asked often what’s a good bread? And the sad fact of the matter is that most breads are NOT good! Most are refined, no fiber, white flour, high fructose corn syrup, cheap oils, preservatives,  low nutritional value, etc.

Keys to choosing a good bread when reading the label

1. Organic whole flours (No enriched)

2. 3 – 5 grams of fiber per slice

3. low natural sugar and no high fructose corn syrup

4. Real ingredients! No dyes or preservatives and word you know and can pronounce

5. Ingredients like Flax seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds sunflower seeds, etc are great in bread!

So, oftentimes in the nutritional world is not that bread is bad its the quality of it that matters. Plus, portions are important too as with most carbs. 

So, when choosing a bread….Take time to read the Label!
