Q:

What is the healthiest kind of bread to eat?

A:

The healthiest bread to eat is 100 percent whole wheat or whole grain bread, according to WebMD. Those breads are naturally low in fat and contain many vitamins and minerals.

People who eat enriched whole wheat and white bread are more at risk of developing type 2 diabetes because those breads contain less fiber than the 100 percent whole wheat variation. Fiber helps to regulate blood sugar levels, lower the levels and also helps maintain bowel health. The enriched flour which makes enriched and white bread also contains salt. As a result, the salt increases a person's risk of getting high blood pressure and other cardiac problems.
