A Word About Whole Wheat Bread

"Whole Wheat" has become an increasingly popular adjective when it comes to breads, pastas, crackers, etc. 

I encourage everyone to choose whole wheat items whenever possible. So here is some food for thought: If something is in fact whole wheat, it will not contain any bleached, or enriched flour.

The problem is, many breads and bread items can say that they are whole wheat, but really their first (and most prominent) ingredient is enriched flour! 

White Bread Ingredients

It is your job as the consumer to be on the lookout for this! You should be looking for a bread that has whole wheat flour as its first ingredient! Also you want to be on the look out for other ingredients like high fructose corn syrup! It is not necessary to use this to make bread, so why should we have it!?

When it comes down to it, you want to choose a bread that has the lowest amount of ingredients overall, meaning that it will have less unnecessary additives.

Alvarado St. Bakery has great yummy whole wheat breads that a free if additives! Take a look:
