Whole grains & Fiber

Whole grains & Fibers

You always hear that you should eat more “whole grain” or “whole wheat” bread products but how do you know what to choose?
Just because a bread is called “wheat bread” or “multigrain” or “stone ground” it doesn’t mean it’s whole grain. Here’s the trick… check the Nutrition Facts label and try to find bread that offers at least 3-5 grams of fiber per slice. You can also look at the % DV (percent daily value) column and look for 12-20%. Pay close attention to the serving size and make sure that it says 1 slice.

Sometimes manufacturers try to trick you by listing the serving size as 2 slices.

Fiber recommendations depend on age, gender and other factors but in general adult males need about 38 grams and women need about 25 grams daily. Fiber is found in breads, grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans and legumes.
