    Is wholemeal ok? I was looking at ingredients and it seems exactly the same as white bread?????? I ask coz i cant find wholegrain wraps anywhere and its driving me crazy.

    Is multigrain bread ok????

    Haha! Let the questions begin. Sorry if i annoy you asking so many questions.

    Anything with the 'grain' in it is better for you nutrition wise as it contains more nutrients and takes longer to process than white/brown (which is basically white coloured brown!) bread. I personally go for a granary type bread wherever possible, but I like it better!

    Asda do wholemeal bread, rolls & pitta.
    Tesco do wholemeal bread, rolls, pitta & muffins.

    www.mysupermarket.co.uk

    Do you have these two stores?
    If not im not sure what else to suggest except maybe going to an 'actual' bakery and buying them from there as im sure they will have some :)

    Haha! Em as far as i can tell wholegrain is high gi coz its whole grains so it takes longer to digest. Wholemeal as far as i can tell is the same but finely ground but im not really sure about that. Coz i looked at the ingredients and wholemeal didnt look great basically the same as white but just looked brown. haha!

    If it's low-GI you're looking for, the best ones are soya & linseed, wholegrain, heavy mixed grain, whole wheat, sourdough rye & sourdough wheat.
    'Less' good are things like croissants, hamburger buns, white pittas/wraps and wholemeal rye.
    To be avoided (or limited) are white breads, bagels, and baguettes.
    HTH a bit?

    It's not- whole GRAIN is! LOL! Wholemeal is just basically coloured white bread- as anne-mariep discovered!
    The difference between wholemeal and wholegrain bread is that wholemeal bread is generally high GI which causes a rapid increase in blood sugar. Wholegrain bread takes longer to digest because of the grains in it, so you don’t get the big increase in blood sugar levels. This helps keep you fuller for longer and is good for your health.

    The reason wholegrain is the best choice is the bran and the wheat germ contain most of the nutrients in the grain. These nutrients include fibre, B Vitamins, antioxidants, Vitamin E, Zinc and Magnesium. With white bread, the outer parts of the grain are removed, leaving the endosperm, which just provides carbohydrate and some protein.

    To choose a good bread, the things to check on the bag are the nutritional information and the ingredients. On the nutritional information, check out the fibre. A good bread should be high in fibre, around 5g to 6g or more per 100g. Also, the first ingredients should be whole wheat or wholemeal flour and it should also contain grains. Many types of bread also say on the packaging if they contain wholegrains.
    Does that help any?

    Wow alot of ingredients in that! it sounds filling and as alot of oils in it. It doesnt sound bad thou hun. You mite be able to find a more natural bread but i tink it sounds good and it has alot of ingredients that you need anyway. So once you arent eating it all day it will still be healthy.
