Re: is whole wheat bread healthier than multigrain

I'm no expert...but I would think that as long as the first ingredient on the label says "whole wheat" or "whole grain" in it...then you're good. I tend to switch off between the two...just for variety. I always buy Brownberry bread...either the "Double Protein" Whole Grain variety...OR...the "Double Fiber" 100% Whole Wheat variety. I don't think either one is more or less "healthy" than the other, as they both are made with 100% whole grains.

Depends. Many "multigrain" breads are predominantly non-whole wheat, with small amounts of other grains mixed in.

Among wheat based breads, choose those that are made mostly of whole wheat. The first ingredient should be whole wheat, not enriched wheat or unbleached wheat or some other form of refined wheat.

Re: is whole wheat bread healthier than multigrain

I am not a nutritionist, nor am I an expert, however, I have asked many people of many walks of life what the difference, and the only common(which is usually in most cases the correct) answer, is read the label. the ingredient list on a label is list in the order of the amount of each ingredient from highest to lowest. Whole grain breads are typically healthier, because they off more grains than whole wheat bread. if the label says bleached, processed, or refined, than it isn't that much healthier because the process strips almost all of the nutrients.

Always read the labels on anything you eat. I learned that in my nutrition class in college.
