Whole foods? - Page 18

post #171 of 177

All multigrain is (compared to white) is it contains flour made with something other than wheat.  It has to be whole wheat or whole grain if you want to get more fiber out of it (though even with that, as with all things, you'll see the nutritional panel of different brands vary)

 

That said, if you're not used to eating whole wheat or whole grain breads, it's a way to ease yourself into the taste of it.  Which is why I suggested it as a sandwich option, especially if whole wheat isn't offered.  Not sure what Subway has.

 

Admittedly I don't eat a ton of bread but the stuff I usually buy is Dave's Killer Bread "21 Whole Grains and Seeds".  Nutrition panel here: http://www.daveskillerbread.com/21-whole-grains-and-seeds

I'm not sure if we have that bread here but I'll look for it or something similar. We do have Vermont Bread Co

I linked my go-to bread just to give you an idea of how much "stuff" you can pack into bread, especially dietary fiber. Not saying my choice of bread is perfect, but I like the way it tastes and it makes great breadcrumbs too. :)

 

I'm always a fan of buying local/regional when possible so if the brand you linked is one you like, then maybe try looking at the nutritional info between their options and try some that sound good until you find something you like that's also got more fiber (gotta say the Vermont Yoga sounds tasty).

That bread looks delicious! I crave it so bad but I have to watch out for multigrain because I'm severely allergic to sunflower seeds sad.png

But the benefit if the omegas in that and flaxseed is so worth it..the good fats, those omegas wink.png

Good stuff there, too! I love to make toast with honey and banana on it if it's multigrain. The honey soaks into the bread and the banana adds a nice texture.. Oh and sometimes I'll put peanut butter on it too... I'm hungry lol tongue.png

From what I understand, for commercial flour, when they grind the wheat to make flour they need to remove the germ because that is the part that goes rancid.  Unfortunately, it is also the nutritious part of the wheat berry.  What is left is then refined with bleaching agents, maturing agents and preservatives after grinding.  Enriched breads have vitamins and such added back to the flour to replace some of the nutrients that are lost during the refining of the flour. 

This process makes the flour "shelf stable" so it doesn't go rancid before it is shipped, stocked on the store shelf, you buy it and cook with it.

 

I have a grinder and make my own flour occasionally (not as often as I would like).  As a result, I have had the unfortunate experience of making bread with rancid flour... I ground the wheat and made a batch of bread and then put the left-over flour in a container in the pantry.  Forgot all about it and let the flour sit in the cabinet for too long.  I found it months later and proceeded to bake some Indian Fry bread with it.  Well, the wild birds/mice seemed to like it.

Thanks for that info! It makes a lot more sense now but it's unfortunate they have to remove the nutritious part

And yeah, I would think rancid flour would taste horrible lol
