Another good and informative series of articles from http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/
With this one I’ll be posting all their Bread catergory’s and winners.

Taste-Tested & Diabetes-Friendly

Do you avoid the bread aisle just to escape the confusion felt by so many carb-conscious consumers? It’s true: Bread is a tricky product to buy, especially for people with diabetes. Now you can return to the bread aisle with confidence — thanks to a list of products that recently received the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval. Our staff and dietitians picked through the loaves to find those that met our nutritional guidelines. Next we brought in more than 100 people, including PWDs, to taste the brand-hidden products. The top breads, buns, tortillas, and English muffins were awarded the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval.

Nutritional Guidelines
Every bread tested had to meet these health requirements per 2 slices, 1 tortilla, or 1 bun:
— 150 calories or less
— 3 g total fat or less
— 1.5 g saturated fat or less
— 0 g trans fat
— 30 g carb or less
— 300 mg sodium or less
— At least 2 g fiber

Hamburger Bun Finalists

To meet our fiber guideline, all of the hamburger buns in our contest were wheat or whole wheat buns. Note: Per bun equals top and bottom.

Pepperidge Farm Classic 100% Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns
Per bun: 120 cal., 2 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 150 mg sodium, 18 g carb., 2 g fiber

Village Hearth Light Wheat Hamburger Buns
Per bun: 80 cal., 1 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 190 mg sodium, 20 g carb., 7 g fiber

Hamburger Bun Winner

And the winner of the hamburger bun category is:

Wonder Wheat Hamburger Buns
Per bun: 110 cal., 1.5 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 220 mg sodium, 21 g carb., 2 g fiber

Taster’s comment: “Good height and structure. Soft, with a hint of sweetness.”

Why it won: This bun was sturdy and wouldn’t flop when filled with fixins’. It’s low enough in fat and calories to suit anyone at a picnic.
