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

Whole Wheat Bread Finalists

The breads in this category had to be 100% whole wheat.

Great Value (Wal-Mart brand) 100% Whole Wheat Bread
Per 2 slices: 140 cal., 2 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 300 mg sodium, 24 g carb., 4 g fiber

Sara Lee 100% Whole Wheat Bread
Per 2 slices: 150 cal., 2 g total fat (0.5 g sat. fat), 210 mg sodium, 27 g carb., 4 g fiber

Whole Wheat Bread Winner

And the winner of the 100% whole wheat bread category is:
Wonder Soft 100% Whole Wheat Bread

Per 2 slices: 110 cal., 1.5 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 220 mg sodium, 20 g carb., 3 g fiber

Taster’s comment: “I love the lightness, and it’s nice that it’s only 110 calories.”

Why it won: Tasters noted how this bread wasn’t dry or stiff. Instead, it was soft and delicious. We’re impressed with the 3 grams of fiber in every 2-slice serving.
