White vs. Brown (Bread)

White vs. Brown (Bread)

Brown or whole wheat bread is heralded as the healthier choice. Does it really deserve its acclaim?

The only meaningful difference lies in the levels of sodium and dietary fiber of the two. The dietary fiber slows digestion down so that the starches convert to blood sugar more slowly. However the higher glycemic content in white bread can be mitigated by adding slower-to-digest foods to your meal. Incidentally, unbleached white flour is better for you than bleached.

Both white and whole wheat breads are healthy additions to most diets when eaten in moderation.
