Obviously, this isn’t an exhaustive list, but it’s a selection that hopefully is quite representative of what is on offer at the supermarkets.
- This is a typical, seeded brown bread (wheat)
2. This table compares common gluten-free loaves. As you can see, there’s quite a big discrepancy!
Red = “worst”
Green = “best”
You’ll note I’ve not commented on the calorie intake, because I believe the nutritional value is far superior to measure kcals!
As a soon-to-be-doctor looking at this, I’d say that the Genius Triple Seeded comes out on top. Gluten-free produce is frequently criticised for low-fibre content, but this 10-gram wonder tells a different tale! An adequate intake of fibre is well-known to reduce the risk of bowel cancer. (Note, however, that compared to wheat-containing bread, it has under half the protein)
Decide what’s important to you: Healthy fats? Low sugar? Low calories? Vitamin D? Vitamin B? Fibre? Money? If you know you’re getting a good amount of one of these things from another source daily, then you may well have different priorities from someone else 🙂
I hope this is useful! x
