    Someone on Facebook has had an email from Asda saying that they have discontinued the wholemeal pitta bread due to costs and poor sales. :(

    Well it was nice while it lasted!

    All the Asda's by us have discontinued Quark for the same reason :( and aparently the Co-op are phasing out Pasta & Sauces?!? :confused: sounds like there is a SW conspiracy going on!! :sigh:

    They may have similar nutritional values but the ingredients are a lot more processed including various flours, oils and a long list of additives. :(

    OMG you're right! It's got some pretty awful ingredients....

    Wholemeal Wheat Flour,Water ,Wheat Flakes , Extra Virgin Olive Oil (1.5%) ,Yeast ,Sea Salt ,Wheat Flour , Preservatives (Calcium Propionate, Potassium Sorbate) , Acidity Regulator (Sodium Diacetate) ,Soya Flour ,Vegetable Oil.


    Alternatively the Waitrose essential wholemeal pitta bread looks great!

    Ingredients: Wholemeal wheat flour, water, soya flour, yeast, salt.

    Not much fibre though.... About half as much as the Asda one... Sigh!!

    Humpf, lol! Nah it's okay. I don't eat the Asda pitta breads anyway. I eat the food doctor cereal & seed pitta bread. Its not a HE but I count it as one anyway (plus 2 syns). Hasn't done me any harm and it tastes delicious, but yeah it's not a SW approved HE.

    On another forum that I visit (moneysavingexpert.com) it says that Asda have had issues with the supplier of their pitta breads and that they are out of stock of all types of pitta. Apparently they had to remove them from sale due to an issue. But it is being looked into and should be resolved shortly.
