I think we all agree that when we decide to eat better, one of the first healthy decisions we make for ourselves is switching from white to wheat bread - it's usually lower in calories and fat and it has more nutrients, but does that hold true 100% of the time?
I went to the Subway nutrition website to look at the calorie count of a few things and I noticed....
Granted, wheat bread still holds more calcium and iron than the sourdough, but as far as sugars and sodium the sourdough is less. They have the same amount of calories. Even if you compare the wheat with the Italian "white" bread, the white bread has less calories, same amount of fat, less sodium, less carbohydrates, same amount of sugar, calcium and iron!
So, I went to the ingredients and the #1 ingredient in both wheat and white bread is enriched wheat flour. Soooo...when I go to Subway would it be Healthier if I choose the white bread?
