Don’t Let the Label Fool You

Breads that say multigrain, seven-grain, nutra-grain, cracked wheat, stone-ground wheat, or enriched wheat must fill the bill, right? Wrong. Unless the word whole appears in the first ingredient, the bread is lacking some of the vitamins and minerals, not to mention fiber, of whole grains. Even a dark brown bread is no guarantee of whole grain; the color could be the result of molasses or caramel coloring. The bottom line: Make sure that the first ingredient is whole wheat or whole grain.
