Pastries and baked goods are not the healthiest foods out there, but they are not all bad. Depending on the type of flour used, these items can provide valuable protein, fat and carbohydrate content. Refer to the calorie calculator for each individual item to see the nutritional value of that product.

Carbohydrate Content

Pastries and baked goods are typically made with all-purpose or whole-wheat flour which is very high in carbohydrate content. The vitamin and mineral content may be increased in these items by using fortified flours, but be mindful of how many carbs you are consuming when you enjoy these items. Refer to the calorie counter for each item to determine its nutrition facts.
If you stop in to your local bakery, you will find a wide assortment of pastries and baked goods – this simply goes to show you just how many options there are. Some pastries are purely indulgent, made with rich chocolate and plenty of sugar, while others can be sweetened with honey and loaded with healthy fruit and nuts. The nutritional value of pastries and baked goods varies widely from one item to another, so refer to the calorie calculator for each item to determine its nutritional information.

Benefits of Enriched Flour

While all-purpose and whole-wheat flour is fairly high in carbs, it does provide some nutritional value – especially if it has been enriched with vitamins and minerals. Enriched flour is often fortified with B vitamins as well as iron and various phytochemicals which have been shown to help reduce cancer risk.

Alternative Flours

While you may be most familiar with pastries and baked goods made using all-purpose flour, alternative flours made from gluten-free food sources are rapidly increasing in popularity. Almond flour and coconut flour, for example, are lower in carbs than all-purpose flour but higher in healthy fats and protein. Items made with alternative flours are not just for those with special medical or nutritional requirements – they can be enjoyed by everyone!
