What does ‘wholemeal bread’ mean in general?
Wholemeal bread is made from wholegrains that have been milled to a fine texture, giving a plain brown appearance. Wholemeal flour contains more fibre than white flour. Wholemeal bread also contains more vitamins and minerals than many white breads, but has a higher GI than wholegrain breads.
Is wholemeal bread healthier than white bread?
Generally speaking, yes. Wholemeal bread has all three components of the grain. As such, it has a higher nutritional value than white bread. This is because the bran and the germ have richer concentrations of vitamins and minerals than the endosperm.
Who should not eat wholemeal bread?
You should avoid wholemeal bread if you have digestive issues, such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, gastroparesis, and diverticulitis or are suffering from diarrhea. Opt for a lower fiber diet and choose more refined grains. This is because some GI conditions are aggravated by high-fiber foods, causing further GI discomfort.
