Default Wholewheat and wholemeal bread


I read here recently that wholewheat is better for us than wholemeal
bread. Went to Safeway supermarket today and searched the shelves for
it - with no success. Asked the Bakery dept if they baked whole wheat
and an assistant said No
Went to a local bakers where they bake a large variety of bread and
they also have not heard of it . I live in S/ wales. Is it only
available elsewhere?

Wholemeal bread has a higher GI than white bread. I use
multigrain or granary in the (possibly mistaken) belief that
the whole seeds and grains lower the GI.

Default Wholewheat and wholemeal bread (heart)


I think it means bread with some of the unprocessed whole grains in it -
granary bread for example. Its supposed to be good for the heart and has a
slower effect in increasing BG Levels than wholemeal. The coarser the better
too.

Just widening this a little I just tried the Ryvita's multi grain pack which
seems to be the same thing but for Rye instead of Wheat.

All the Best

It's an American term - often shortened to 'wheat'. Much the same as
our 'granary' bread.

Hi Brian,
Try Tesco or Co_Op, they should have it. Alternatively use Ryvita Dark.

Goto Sainsburys and grab a loaf of their Granary
i think they call it Harvest Grain
Its 14g Carbs per slice which for bread is the best there is,
unless you buy that cheap sh1t that u can see through
wrapped in a plastic bag (cant remember name) but its a
brown type bread and has only 8g per slice.
Asda and Tesco get their mix from Hovis so they tell me
and its yukk!
i have no idea where Sainsburys or Safeway get theres from :-)

If you can find it, Weight Watcher's Malted Danish is only about 8g
carb/slice and tastes wonderful.

I'm into Warburton's Seeded Batch at the moment.

Thick sliced white bread (though it looks brown), with 14% seed mix
(Sesame seeds, Sunflower seeds, Linseed, Millet seed and Poppy seed)

Per average slice: 10.6g Carbs and 0.9g Fibre

Getting mine from the Co-Op.

Cheers

Each to their own i think LOL
I tried Tesco`s and to be fair it was fine.
I hate Asda with a vengence and would complain even if i
liked their stuff LOL
Best way is to try each companys and then make up your
own mind :-))
Sorry i was not trying to force Sainsburys bread on anyone.
