Good 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” even when eating this foodstuff.

That is true 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 type. You must trust me on that.

It is because white bread is from wheat flour and there isn’t any wheat-germ and bran. That is not good, as that is where most of the bread’s goodness is.

Then to make matters worse, they add bleach to the flour using Potassium bromide. It is a cheaper way to have a similar-looking product.

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

So, now we know the main reason why white bread is not suitable for us. However, we also need to be sure if we are choosing to purchase brown bread, it is the right wholemeal bread. You are aware of what I mean, the right stuff?

Please, look for the main ingredient, and it should be wholemeal or whole wheat flour. If 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 stuff. It won’t be.

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. You should do the same.

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

They will use caramel to add some color in some “brown” bread.

    1. Haha, yeah, thanks, Lee. I deliberately kept it simple for easier reading! After all, the easier it is to read, then the easier it is for the reader to find what they are looking for!

  1. 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,

    1. 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.

  2. 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.
