I'm confused! Is bread supposed to be good for us or not? Is there a particular type of bread that is better than others for health?

Likely not the greatest food choice in the world, but I would put it in the category of things you can enjoy in moderation. It's the basics of some great sandwiches, and quick meals, so I would struggle to not have it in my diet. I know that it's high in gluten which for many is not ideal, and white bread particularly contains high levels of sugar and isn't as good for you as whole wheat breads. I think as long as you have a balanced diet and don't eat too much of it, then it is fine. Perhaps sticking to whole grain or whole wheat breads is a compromise.
Well they say you should not eat any White bread, because the flour is bleached!
Then there are the food numbers to watch.So if a child has ADHD they should not eat any bread with 282 I think it is .I had to watch this in my son, as he was growing up.
Wholemeal bread is the best they say, and limit it to 2-3 slices per day.
There is a lot of bread on the market I have tyred, and I can say they are pretty much, dreadful.It's hard to believe unless starving ....people would eat them. It's all about the bread now staying longer on the shelf!, and feeling soft.
Bread was around for thousands of years, but also has been stripped of it's most valuable properties.
If you buy bread, pay the extra to get the better buys, and at the same time...you will eat less, because of the price. Now your in a win-win :)
Great question....I wondered about this too. I don't think so. I think they put a lot of yeast in bread these days which has an affect on us in some way. However, it is also one of those foods which aides with making the quickest meal.
Some breads are good(usually the expensive stuff), but there are many breads that are bad. White bread is probably the worst bread to eat, especially the cheaper options. The better breads are wholemeal.
It depends on the tip of bread some are some are not.

As per me multigrain breads are good for health

I like more natural breads like rye and sourdough. The white stuff just seems too processed to me to have anything good in it. And don't get me started on the white stuff which has added vitamins - why would they add vitamins to bread when the grains had them in the first place, before they were stripped out by processing, only to be added back in again? It doesn't make any sense to me at all.
I've gone gluten free and found that my health has improved. Can't really explain it, but I'm sticking to it! And it rules out most breads, which is difficult because I used to love making a great sandwich.
oh yeah !
bring back the bread the baker would deliver to your home every day I remember arriving home from school and eating melon and lemon jam (think the brand was IXL)on lovely fresh bread.
I am not a dietician, however cannot see what harm bread can do!

I don't know if it is good or bad. I only know it has been around now for a COUPLE of years now and that I treat bread like I treat the diet I grew up on. Bread for sandwiches or with soup. Meat and 3+ (fresh) vegetables most days of the week but fish of Friday. Plenty of milk. Just go with what I was brought up on.
I don't know and I don't care, I love a good crusty loaf with sesame seeds on it, as simple as it sounds a lot of places don't sell it like this, apart from the supermarkets, but their breads are tasteless.
