Know the Nutrition Value of the Bread you Eating
Before we go deep into the nutrition of bread lets discuss why we need to take care of our nutrition. Firstly you have to Calculate what you eat if you are finding it hard to manage your weight. Secondly, Try foods which have fewer calories and better nutrition for your daily life. Don’t just fast to lose weight it’s dangerous to health too. In this article, we will tell you about the nutrition in 4 types of bread that are easily available in the market and most of us use them in our daily life so pick the right one.
The biggest difference between brown and white bread is its processing. Much like grains, the flour is more processed than in whole wheat bread. Basically, the germ and bran of the wheat grain are removed and only the white, starchy endosperm part is left, which is the least nutritious. White bread is also sold with added sugars (fructose corn syrup & refined sugar). Calorically, there isn’t a significant difference but based on nutrients, brown bread is far superior and beneficial for us.
As mentioned above, in contrast to white bread,
whole wheat bread during its processing has the germ and bran intact = more nutrients. The real reason we are told to opt for naturally brown or dark colored food! Whole wheat also provides more fiber, protein, vitamin E & B, magnesium, manganese, iron, phosphorous, potassium, zinc and phytonutrients (plant lignans that protect us against breast cancer & heart disease.)
So how does multi-grain compare to whole wheat? Well, much like the name suggests, it contains many different types of grains as opposed to whole wheat bread. It includes oats, cornmeal, barley, wheat, millet, flax or others. Out of all the bread, multi-grain contains the most fiber and if you don’t mind the earthiness of the bread, you can definitely add it to your diet.
P 28 high protein bread makes it easy to add protein into your diet without a fuss. It’s 100% natural and contains whole wheat, whey protein, oats, flax seed, sunflower seed, and millet. It tastes like a hybrid of multi-grain + white bread. It’s also rich in omega 3 and essential amino acids. With 14 g of protein and 12 g carbs per slice, I get the perfect combination of both.
