Pre-packaged bread is a convenience product that is great to have on hand for sandwiches, snacks and sides. Depending on the ingredients used in the product, bread can also be a good source of vitamins, minerals, and healthy carbohydrates.
Whole-Grain BreadBread made from whole grains is loaded with micronutrients which are essential for supporting healthy metabolism and whole-body health. Whole grains are also high in dietary fiber which helps to keep you feeling full while also improving digestive health. Refer to the calorie counter for different types of bread to determine its nutritional value.
Carb ContentThe primary macronutrient in bread is carbohydrate. Though all bread contains carbohydrate, the different grains and flours used to produce result in a wide range of calorie and carb content across the board. If you refer to the calorie calculator for white bread, for example, you might notice that the carb count is higher than in a bread made from almond or coconut flour. The ingredients used to produce bread will also impact its content of protein and fats.
Carbohydrates are an essential source of nutrients for the human body and bread products are one of the easiest ways to meet your daily recommended intake. The Institute of Medicine recommends that healthy adults receive 45% to 65% of their daily calories from carbs.
