Which is better for you — whole wheat bread or multi-grain bread? I have had type 2 diabetes for a year now and I've been told whole wheat bread is not good for you because it has half white flour.
Actually, whole wheat bread is a healthy choice, along with any whole grain bread. But not all whole grain breads are necessarily good choices. The way to determine if a bread, or any foodfor that matter, is truly “whole grain” is to read the ingredient list on the package. The first ingredient should be a whole grain food, such as whole wheat, whole rye, stoneground whole wheat, wheatberries, oats or oatmeal, or brown rice. The words “multigrain,” “wheat” or “stoneground” don’t necessarily mean that the food is a whole grain. For more information, visit the Whole Grains Councils website at www.wholegrainscouncil.org.
