Buns & Rolls: Calories & Nutrition Facts
Sorted by Brand
The nutritional value of buns and rolls varies greatly depending on the ingredients used. Refer to the calorie calculator for your favorite buns and rolls to determine the calories and the nutrition facts.
Whole Grain vs. White FlourIf you compare the nutrition facts for buns and rolls made with whole grain flour versus processed flour, you will notice a difference. Whole grains are an excellent source of dietary fiber as well as a variety of vitamins and minerals. Processed grains are often fortified with nutrients, but a significant portion of the nutritional value for cereals and grain products can be lost during processing. This processing does not, however, significantly alter the calories or carbohydrate content of the food.
Sugar ContentWhen you think about the ingredients used to make bread and rolls – even whole-grain or whole-wheat varieties – you may not realize just how much sugar they contain. The type of white bread that is popular in the United States contains about 1.5 grams of sugar per slice – buns and rolls made from white bread are typically larger than a single slice and thus contain more sugar. The carbohydrate content in bun and rolls alone will have a significant impact on your blood sugar levels, not to mention the added impact of sugar.
Certain types of buns and rolls are deemed healthier than others based on the ingredients used to make them. Buns and rolls made with alternative flours, for example, may be lower in carbs and higher in essential nutrients.
