When you choose a product over another product, it’s important to have a look at its nutritional value.
We tend to mark food as ‘good’ or ‘bad’, but it’s often not that simple. White bread doesn’t offer much nutritionally: it barely contains vitamins, minerals, fibres and contains quite some simple carbs. But, white bread every now and then can still be fine, as long as you make sure to get your nutrients through other sources. Finally, it’s good to keep in mind that whether product is good or bad, isn’t the same for everyone. Every body works a bit differently, so always listen carefully to your body.
Let’s take a look at white bread in comparison to wholemeal bread. We see that white bread contains less protein, fibres and minerals and more carbs. So, wholemeal bread contains more important nutrients than white bread and wins this matchup. Besides, the fibres help you to feel full for a longer time which can be helpful if losing weight is your goal.
