Bread Nutrition Fact

Ever heard the phrase "man can not live on bread alone"? Its a true fact.Although bread is a good source of protein,vitamins,iron and calcium plus fiber content from wheat bread,it still not enough for a good diet.That's why bread need to join with another group of food to support its lack of vitamins and minerals.But one thing for sure,breads are not that fattening.One slice of regular white bread is about 80 calories. White bread contains iron, niacin and calcium. One slice of Rye bread also contains approximately 65 calories, and is a good source of Iron and thiamine.

Does bread contain carbohydrates?The answer is yes.Some of bread also low in fat.But do not easily take this fact for the answer.There are various type of bread in this world.Each of these type got pros and cons.But none of these bread can beat rice for it carbohydrates.That's why bread should always be included as part of a balanced and healthy diet.Not for main dishes.

The only best type of bread ever known is wholemeal bread.Some people called it "brown bread".Its always considered to be a healthier alternative to white bread, as all of the grain is used in making it, where as, only the part of it is used when making white bread.Let me compare both of it nutrition fact.For every 100g of wholemeal bread and white bread,wholemeal got 77g of calorie compare to white bread that have only 50g.For carbohydrate,wholemeal contain 17g but white bread only 11g.Wholemeal bread again better than white bread in protein content.

This fact only for original wholemeal and white bread recipe.As you know,there are plenty modification made by manufacturer to their bread product.Some of them been added with additional diet value.For example,the newly invented low GI bread.GI stand for Glycemic Index, it is a measure for calculating the glucose level of the blood.Every 100g of low GI bread is made up to 46.4g of carbohydrate, of which sugar is just 2.9g and has a salt level of 0.7g.Bread with a low GI ranking (1 to 55) cause a slow, steady rise in blood sugar levels reducing food cravings, making you feel full for a longer period of time.Bread with a low GI help people control their blood sugar levels and may contribute to weight loss.This low GI bread is suitable for dieters, healthy eaters, vegetarians and type 2 diabetics who follow a low Gi diet.

I am an American Expat living in the Philippines. Here most commercial Filipino bread has a lot of suger. I miss all the different breads avaliable back in the states, especially Jewish rye bread and Pumpernickle with rasins.

I have always loved the taste of fresh warm, bread. I have said if bread could have all the dietary needs in one, I would be a happy and healthy man, but then is the butter or some item added and then the belly grows.

I hope you will enjoy my site.

How much bread should one eat in a typical day? I often hear people tell me that I eat too much bread and that it isn't good for me in the long run.

There is no limitation on eating bread daily.As u can see,bread doesnt provide much carb for your daily diet.But remember bread only great when we combined with other type group of food.

Does all these nutrients from bread are because of the flour content of it or from other ingredients?

Well,wheat only contain useful nutrient for body needs,usually other ingredient "spoiled" the nutrition.Thats why we're recommend white loaf or wholemeal bread rather than flavored bread.

I actually prefer eating bread rather than rice. It contains different vitamins and minerals that rice don't have.
