The dietary contribution made by bread is often under appreciated.Contrary to the outdated beliefs ,bread inhertantly does not possess fattening qualities.Eaten in moderation one can savour the bread even if the goal is to loose the extra pounds.The fibrous wholegrain and seaded wholegrain breads help in appetite control and satiate any further hunger pangs .

Bread is full of sugar and is bad for the sugar levels in our body
Dietary contribution of bread is under estimated when it comes to sugar levels.Bread ,be it white ,brwon or wholemeal does not contain sugar as a part of the original recipie.the little sugar content comes in with the usage of flour.The starch present in small amounts in the flour make supto 1 to 2 grams of sugar per slice when the bread is baked which is very low in quantities .so eating bread is not really bad for your sugar levels.
Bread that is gluten free is much healthier
Gluten gives breads the sponginess that is required so if a bread loaf is gluten free it might be packed with higher sugar contents and other taste enhancing nasties .They are often swaped with corn starch to match the structure.So a gluten free bread is not essentialy a healthy choice.
