Nutritionist-Recommended Healthiest Breads

These Are the Breads a Dietitian Eats at Home — and You Should, Too

There's no need to banish bread from your diet (carbs are not your enemy), as long as you stick with our dietitian-approved slices and bread-buying guidelines. When buying bread, look beyond claims like "7-grain," "sprouted," or "multi-grain." Many loaves sound healthy but are not much more than enriched white flour. Yes — you need to read those labels!

Look for breads that are made of whole grains and offer:

  • No more than 110 calories per serving
  • At least 2 grams fiber
  • No more than 4 grams (1 tsp.) sugar
  • 3 or more grams of protein
  • Zero grams of saturated fat

Here are five breads that meet this criteria. Look for them on the shelves of your local grocery store.
