Italian Roasted Vegetable Sandwich

Choosing wholegrain bread can be tricky, since the amount of wholegrain isn’t listed on the nutrition panel. However, here are some tips for choosing breads high in wholegrain:

  • Look for claims such as “high in whole grains” or “very high in whole grains”
  • Be mindful that breads marketed as “multigrain” or “made with whole grains” don’t necessarily mean they are high in whole grains
  • The colour of the bread can sometimes be misleading too, but check the ingredients for words like “whole wheat flour” rather than “wheat flour”
