We hear “there’s a whole world of wonderful breads”. True!
❗ But is it the whole truth?
We hear “bread has been part of human diet for 1000s years”. Also true.
❗ Except, then bread was baked from coarse, unrefined flours.
Our society evolved, so did bread. From “flat cakes” to the packed slices from 1930th. Modern times have brought us a multitude of new breads, hence selecting the most suitable bread is a difficult job.
📌 We share a few tips to help you navigate the various options 📌
✅ Go for bread with the lowest amount of sugar.
✅ Choose high in fibre bread (wholegrain, whole-wheat). Fibre is a non-digestible carb, it doesn’t raise blood sugar level.
✅ Opt for breads with a lower glycaemic index. These are digested slowly, helping you to feel energized throughout the day.
* 100% stone-ground whole-wheat & pumpernickel bread have the lowest GI(55)
** Whole wheat & rye bread are medium-glycaemic foods (GI 56-69)
