By | January 8, 2016

To answer the question how many calories in a slice of bread, there is something to think. You will need to think about the type of food, and also the size of the loaf/piece. It will be different for every one of it that you choose to eat.

Before I begin, let me point you to an excellent nutrition plan. the NUTRISYSTEM

Some bread has a lot more calories than others because it depends on the quality of the loaf in question.

Brown Bread Is Healthier Than White

A Normal Metal Toaster, But, How Many Calories In A Slice Of Bread You May Be Wondering? Listen On.

You should note, wholemeal bread (brown bread) is much healthier for you. Although we do say “be careful” when eating this foodstuff. Especially when you are on a diet, because it will, in most cases, add to your possibly already overweight body, however, it is not as bad as the white variety.

It is because white bread is from wheat flour and there isn’t any wheat-germ and bran. That is unfortunate, as that is where most of the bread’s goodness is. Then to make matters worse, the flour is then bleached using Potassium bromide.

That on its own can be very harmful substance indeed. You can call it an oxidizing agent. It can cause itchy skin and is poisonous if swallowed in its raw form.

So, now we know the main reason why white bread is not suitable for us we also need to ensure if we are choosing to purchase brown bread. It is wholemeal bread in the traditional sense.

Please, look for the main ingredient, and it should be wholemeal or whole wheat flour. If it the manufacturer does not write it then you should not buy it.

If it is not from that, then you are not genuinely buying wholemeal/brown bread, in other words, don’t act a fool thinking it is the real deal.

It may be your brown bread of choice might have “enriched” wheat flour in it. It is the same as the flour people use in white bread, which is why it is a no-no. We avoid white bread every time someone offers it to us. At least, you should do.

If you are unsure as to the originality of the brown bread, see if you can see the presence of caramel. If it is in the list of ingredients, then it is not the best wholemeal you can choose. So, put it back then check another.

They will use caramel as a coloring agent in some “brown” bread.

In all honesty, the way to look at it is this. The fewer ingredients the bread has, the healthier it is for you.

When we are talking about brown bread, it is a fact amongst millions of health professionals that the white one is far less healthy for us.

    Hi Simon,
    Thank you for this very informative article. I love all sorts of bread and since here in France we eat a lot of cheese, the bread is almost inevitable. So it’s very hard to eat it with moderation. At least, now I know how to chose my bread, thanks to your great tips. 🙂
    Have a great day!
    Best wishes,

      Great thank you for your very positive comment. I do try and help and DO feel that not a care is ever given to the amount of calories in bread so I thought that people should know.

    Simon, another great read. I grew up with my family/s owned bakery. We had probably 10 different types of bread including a couple of whole grain varieties but I never knew the calories, so you article was very informative. I also remember getting 40-100 lbs sacks of refined sugar delivered every week. That couldn’t have been too healthy? Always enjoy your tips on health. Keep up the great service to your readers.
