  • Wheat for gluten
  • Herbs, fruits, onions, olives, seeds, etc.

Why is bread the staff of life?
  • Inexpensive source of calories
  • Excellent source of carbohydrates
  • High in fiber (if whole grain)
  • Protein
  • Gluten in wheat is a partially complete protein
  • Excellent source of most B vitamins
  • plus some vitamin E and K
  • Wide array of minerals
  • Fe, Ca, Mg, P, Cu, Mn, Se, Zn, Cr
  • Low in fat

Current Dietary Guidelines
  • Make half of your grain intake whole grains
  • 3 whole grains per day for a 2000 kcal diet
  • Whole grains, as part of a healthy diet, may
    protect again chronic disease
  • FDA has approved 3 whole grain health claims
    statements for use on labels

What kind of bread should I choose?
  • Look for a WHOLE GRAIN BREAD
  • Whole grain or Whole wheat as first
  • Label that says 100 Whole Grain
  • Dont be fooled by Wheat Bread, Stone Ground
    or brown colored breads
  • Enriched flours or breads have some nutrients
    replaced, but they do not contain everything that
    a whole grain bread does
