Quick Question: This Bread is a Good Choice, Right?

If a package states that a food is “made with whole grains,” it might contain only one gram of whole grain. Worse yet, the little bit of whole grain present could be packaged with a lot of refined grains and added sugar, so it’s important to be conscientious about reading the ingredient list and glancing at the Nutrition Facts label. Remember that a bread labeled as a “good source of whole grain” must contain eight grams of whole grain per slice, which doesn’t sound so bad. But now consider that the typical slice of bread contains 24 grams of grain, and you’ll see that this bread is only one-third whole grain, which isn’t that great.
