Nutritionist-Recommended Healthiest Breads

These Are the Breads That a Nutritionist Eats at Home

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

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

  • 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
