Wheat Bread Isn’t Really What You Think


It a wonderful choice you’ve made when you start focusing on making sure you get enough fiber in your diet. Picking up a loaf of wheat bread instead of your usual white variety is a good start but be careful – just because bread is brown in color or calls itself wheat bread, doesn’t mean that it’s whole wheat bread.

All bread – white or wheat- is made with wheat flour. But is some bread, the flour is refined. These brown breads get their darker color from caramel coloring, not from the type of flour used. By law, any bread that’s labeled whole wheat must be made with 100 percent whole-wheat flour, although the amount used can vary depending on the brand. The type of flour that’s first in the ingredient list is the one present in the greatest amount.

To find high-fiber breads, read Nutrition Facts panels and ingredients lists. For maximum fiber impact, choose breads that list whole-wheat or whole-grain flour as their main ingredient.
