Tescos website says that Biona rye bread has 4.3g suger per 100g not the zero this article claims


Rubbish Ingredients FORTIFIED WHEAT FLOUR (wheat flour, calcium carbonate, iron, niacin, thiamin), water,�fermented wheat flour, yeast, salt, spirit vinegar, soya flour, emulsifier mono- and diacetyl tartaric acid esters of mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids, palm oil, rapeseed oil, flour treatment agent ascorbic acid


This really can not be right... There is NOWAY this bread is healthier for you, nutritionally and I'm worried that the wrong information is being given out here... Sometimes foods can contain "GOOD FATS", so even if the FAT content is higher for a certain food does not mean it is unhealthier. The unhealthy fat you need to look at is "SATURATED FAT". Other ingredients to keep an eye out on would be the sugar or salt content aswell. If I were to compare the Biona Organic Rye bread to this bread, surely professional nutriotionists would recommend the RYE bread. Biona Organic Rye Bread: Amaranth/Quinoa Wheat Free Bread: 10/10 Per 100g (the average slice of bread is around 50g)- Cals: 195 One of the lowest calories (LOWER THAN WAITROSE BREAD) Fat: 2.2g (HIGHER but will contain good fats also) Saturated fat: 0.26g (LOWER THAN WAITROSE BREAD - this is what matters!) Sugar: 0g Lowest sugar (LOWER THAN WAITROSE BREAD) Salt: 0.3g (LOWER THAN WAITROSE BREAD) Please do not switch to this bread under the false pretense that it is healthier - it really is not!


So bizzare that this article recommends white bread over wholewheat. Common sense would dictate that this is not the best conclusion. Take a look at the benefits of wholewheat bread, compare that with white bread and you can be pretty certain what while the white bread may have low sugar/fat in comparison to the particular brands mentioned here, it won't do a great deal for you nutritionally. If you want healthy bread, make it yourself or go to a artisan bakery. Find out how bread is made and what goes into it. That way you can make sure that you are getting nutrition while also avoiding added nasties. Please don't switch from Wholegrain to white because of this article!


The slices are quite long. Would one slice be enough for a sandwich? I'm not sure what is the usual serving size for this bread. I usually take Nimble by Hovis, and 3 slices suffice me. Any idea?1

I have a mild wheat intolerance and cant eat shop bought bread , I moved to Germany a few years ago where the bread is firmer and has a much higher rye content I can eat Bread again! English bread makes me sad that the art of baking good healthy Bread has been lost and everyone eats factory made hollow calories , good to see rye bread on the list though :)
