Whole Wheat But Not The Whole Story

Different types of white bread

I was told in a Nutrition class that the best way to find whole grain bread is to stick with labels that say “100% whole grain.” Anything else is white bread with some grains thrown in for decoration.

Having spent hours in the grocery store deliberating over fiber grams, types of wheat flour and how many grains make “multi,” looking for the “100%” label is a much safer – and faster – way to shop.

I’m sticking with that method, but if you want to do the work, check out “Whole Wheat But Not the Whole Story” from the SanFran Chronicle.

    I bake a lot and have found that there are some great flours out there (I use King Arthur) that can be used to “ease” kids into whole wheat. For example, I substitute whole white wheat as a transition flour. Makes a great bread and has enough whole wheat to make me happy and enough white to keep them eating it.
