Savvy marketers have changed the lingo of the bakery aisle to the point that every product claims to be “Whole” this or “Multigrain” that but does that mean it’s healthy?
Keep this in mind next time you pick up a loaf of bread with a healthy sounding name!
·Make sure the first ingredient is “Whole Wheat Flour”
Wheat flour, Unbleached Wheat Flour or Unbleached, Enriched Wheat Flour” is not the same!!
·Manufactures “enrich” their flour by adding a few B vitamins and Iron. Instead of picking enriched bread but one that hasn’t been robbed of vitamins and minerals in the first place-
·Check the Fiber content and make sure there is at least of 2 grams per slice.
