The 7 Healthiest Types of Bread

If you want bread, not every loaf is the same. Some kinds of bread are high in sugary flour and sugar, but others are full of good things for you and full of nutrients. These seven kinds of bread are some of the best you can eat.


1. Whole Wheat Bread

Whole grains make whole wheat bread high in fibre, vitamins, and minerals. Unlike refined grains, whole grains include nutrients in the bran and germ. To gain the most nutrients, choose "100% whole wheat" bread.

2. Sprouted Grain Bread

After sprouting, entire grains are crushed into flour for sprouted grain bread. Bread can be more nutritious and digestible after sprouting. Protein, fibre, vitamin C, and folate are also abundant.

3. Multigrain Bread

Multigrain bread contains wheat, oats, barley, and flaxseed. This variety of grains offers minerals and flavours. Check the ingredient list to guarantee whole, unrefined grains.

4. Rye Bread

Rye bread is produced from rye flour. Though dense, it tastes slightly sour. Fibre, vitamins, and minerals including magnesium and iron are in rye bread. It has a lower glycemic index than white bread, thus it doesn't raise blood sugar.

5. Sourdough Bread

Sourdough bread is fermented with wild yeast and lactic acid bacteria. This fermentation process gives sourdough its tangy flavour and breaks down gluten and phytic acid, making bread simpler to digest and decreasing blood sugar surges.

6. Oatmeal Bread

Oats, especially beta-glucan, a cholesterol-lowering soluble fibre, are used to make oat bread. Oats contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Oat bread is soft and slightly sweet.

7. Flaxseed Bread

Omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, and antioxidant lignans are found in flaxseed bread. Omega-3s are anti-inflammatory and may lower heart disease risk. Nuttiness and density characterise flaxseed bread.
