Wholemeal vs White Bread

When eating bread it's not just about the calories. The key is to always look at the additional nutritional values.

Lets compare Tesco medium white and wholemeal bread:

Calories - 95.68
Carbs - 18.24g
Fibre - 0.92g
Protein - 3.24g

Calories - 93.52
Carbs - 14.68g
Fibre - 2.64g
Protein - 4.76g

Key Facts - Why To Eat Wholemeal Bread
Less carbs
More fibre
More protein

Wholemeal offers essential nutrients because it is less refined. This means it still contains the
nutrient-rich bran and germ, both of which are removed when making white flour.

Other Health Benefits
Lower cholesterol
Lower risk for heart disease
Lowers risk of type 2 diabetes
Reduces the risk of bowel cancer
Helps digestion
Reduces body mass

Does this mean you should feel guilty for eating white bread, never eat it again? HELL NO... although I pick whole breads, pastas and rices most of the time I definitely have a weakness for white bread with a generous amount of salted butter, croissants and fresh crusty bread and I'll never give them up. Another KEY is moderation.

I used to get symptoms but since eating cleaner or better choices even the small things I don't get them any more. Could be coincidence but food choices have definitely changed me and I didn't realise how much until I started going off the wagon.
