Whole Wheat vs. Enriched Flour

Nutrition Lizard:  What type of bread is the healthiest? 

Whole wheat bread is more nutritious than white bread because it has more fiber, vitamins and minerals.   

Look at the first ingredient on the nutrition label;  You want whole wheat and not enriched flour.

Enriched flour is made when vitamins and/or minerals that were removed during food processing are later re-added to the flour.   This may be called "wheat" bread but it is not as nutritious as 100% whole wheat bread.
