Which bread is healthy – white or brown? It doesn’t matter. If you are looking for a healthy option, check the packaging to see if it mentions “100% whole wheat”, “full grains” or fiber content that is greater than 1.2%. Breads containing the words “Refined flour”, “Bleached Flour” are not healthy options.
