There's no need to banish bread from your diet, as long as you stick with our dietitian-approved slices and bread-buying guidelines. When buying bread, look well beyond the "7-grain," "sprouted," or "multi-grain" claims. Many loaves sound healthy but are not much more than enriched white flour. You need to read the labels!
Look for breads that are made of whole grains and provide:
- No more than 110 calories per serving
- At least 2 grams fiber
- No more than 4 grams (1 tsp) sugars
- 3 or more grams of protein
- Zero grams of saturated fat
