So as a dietitian, I want to be sure they're somewhat healthy before I recommend this product to all of my clients. Here's the nutritional info per slice:
- 90 calories/ slice - On target with most whole grain/whole wheat breads with the exception of "light" or "diet" breads, weighing in a t 40 calories per slice.
- 18 g carbohydrates - 1 slice is approximately 1 bread exchange for diabetics
- 8g of whole grains - Just whole grains; this is not a true whole wheat bread, as the first ingredient says "whole wheat flour" and not "100% whole wheat flour"
- 3g fiber
- 4g protein - a bit more than other breads out there
- 0g saturated or trans fats
- 1.5 g unsaturated fats (your heart-healthy fats)
- 5g sugar - This is 1 or 2 grams higher than regular whole grain breads. Not a huge difference, and most likely due to the fruit flavoring of the breads including apple, raisin and blueberries.
Bottom Line: These breads are a tasty alternative to your traditional morning routine. Mix them into a normal routine of oatmeal, high fiber cereals and other whole grain toasts or waffles. Toast 2 slices and add 1 tablespoon of almond or peanut butter, a spread of light cream cheese or 1% whipped cottage cheese with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Enjoy!
