Oh boy did I catch hell for this one. At ICHQ I made the remark that wheat bread and white bread were pretty much the same as far as health and nutrition. This was not taken well by the group.
But this comment didn't come out of my butt. Sometimes I actually have a good point...sometimes :-)
I have been compiling a spread sheet of 30 differnt breads that "Aunt Millies" produces (www.auntmillies.com
I logged the nutritional label of each bread. What I found is that 23 out of 30 breads have virtually identical nutrition. Wheat, white, 100% wheat, multi-grain. All were static across the board. At least 12 grain had 5 time more fiber, but only 6g.
The major argument (Valid) was that the nutritional label means nothing and it how your body processes the food. I say the nutritional label is a reflection of the ingredients.
Another valid argument was the wheat bread has more of the grain parts than white. That would mean that fiber would be higher. Well it is higher in most, but only by .5g to 1g in most cases. Pretty much nothing.
The Healthy Goodness bread however, i will say, is much better from a nutritional point of view. Less sugar and more fiber.
I would say don't stress out about the type of bread you eat. The real choice is to eat the bread or don't. But between breads its almost all the same.
Attached is my spreadsheet. See for yourself.
