They say white bread is not healthy because it has all the nutrients taken out, so it lacks fibre. However, white bread contains more calcium that wholemeal, so in that respect, it is still good for you.Wholemeal is definitely much healthier, but that does not mean white bread in necessarily unhealthy. It all depends on how it is made - factory bread with additives, or freshly baked natural ingredients from the bakers.
I do prefer wholemeal, both in terms of nutrition and taste. I do not eat factory white bread because it does not taste that great, but I will eat bakery white bread, and white bread I have made myself.
No we don't eat white, as a rule.
If we do have some it is always wholemeal 99% of the time.
We have now also this week cut our bread down by about 70%.
Feeling such a difference, and my clothes are loose!
We generally buy multigrain bread. I have recently been diagnosed with Coeliac disease so no bread for me...I do occasionally sneak a bit of nice freshly backed white bread though!! I LOVE it...so nice and fluffy!
I usually am very particular about eating bread containing seeds,grains,fruits, herbs,or even pumpkin or cheese.But every now and then I absolutely ADORE a really fresh WHITE bread roll with poppy seeds all over it, And I only use BUTTER as I detest margarine in any way shape or form, Aaaah!! Now my mouth is watering just at the thought,so I may need to make a trip to gthe bakery around the corner!!
Bread is a lot like chocolate for me. It has to be good to be worth it.
I looked up a couple of resources to get my facts straight, though, and saw that white bread may help promote lactobacillus bacteria (Source: Sonia Gonzalez, University of Oviedo). Sourdough is also better than ordinary white bread because of the lactic acid starter reducing the GI.
I've switched to Baker's Delight sourdough as my white bread of choice. It's still soft and delicious without the adverse effects that cheaper brands can give. I don't eat white bread often, but sometimes it's nice to splash out.
Like a good white bread from a bakery, makes good toast with vegemite or nutella as some of you like too, YUM! unhealthy? if that is the only unhealthy thing we eat than we ain't doing so bad… any GOOD baked bread is nice, not supermarket stuff as a general rule.
YES, I'm afraid I do still eat white bread! I know it's not healthy for you, but I just love having vegemite, peanut butter, cheese, or butter with brown sugar, or golden syrup on it. Very naughty me! We also eat wholemeal bread, as the whole grain isn't supposed to be as good for you, as the wholemeal!
