Trying to figure out why Healthy Life Bread with only 35 calories a slice didn't make it to your list of best whole wheat bread to purchase?

Almost all of the recommended breads have ingredient lists as long as my arm. If you really want to keep natural whole grain breads in your diet, make your own! It's not as complicated as it looks or if you have no time to bake your own bread, find a natural bake house. Whole Foods Market Bakehouse breads have a wide selection of breads and they have organic ingredients and only 5 or 6 ingredients that are found in your own kitchen.

Does any one know the healthiest options/ brands in Australia? I usually buy Helgas but I can now see this says "wheat flour" so is not as great as it is supposed to be!

Alpine breads at Costco are fantastic! 80c/slice and very tasty.

or make your own bread! It is fun, simple ingredients, and rewarding! Knead it with your own hands, shape it into a loaf and enjoy the smell of fresh baked bread! You control all the ingredients. Get a recipe you like, that has the nutrients you want, like wheat bread or rye...but even white bread you make for yourself is so much better than white bread you can buy off the shelf.

@Dotslady- You are correct that we shouldn't try to get all of our fiber from grains (calories would be too high for one!); we should get a lot from our fruits & vegetables. Many people are sensitive to wheat who may not have know it. Keep in mind that 60-70% of the population do not have a problem with wheat so don't need to stop eating it...

I'm trying to add more whole grains to my diet in the their less processed forms: brown/wild rice; barley; bulgur; quinoa etc. (pardon my punctuation...my keyboard doesn't have a working comma). However this is an article on how to chose healthy BREAD; so perhaps another forum would be better for this discussion ;)
