Carbohydrates in white v whole grains. Which is better? How much sugar is in your bread?
It is hard to believe that changing from white bread to whole grain saves you 1/2 teaspoon of sugar! It is due to a little fibre in the whole wheat bread which slightly reduces the digestible carbohydrate content. Are they higher quality? In fact there is little nutritional difference between the two.
“The problem is that many dietitians around the world are telling people to have wholegrain bread when most wholegrain bread is roughly comparable to eating a bag of glucose.” Prof Jim Mann – on Carbohydrate quality.
